Goals happen. When you blame a loss on the other team scoring more, it's an excuse. Plain and simple

Then do something to improve it, or you can just get the **** out and stop complaining about how bad it is, you sanctimonious twat squirt. :p

Too many Gopher trolls (man, the last four years were fun) to improve it. I suppose I could lock the thread or delete it, but then there would just be another thread started by Gopher trolls, and it would probably be worse. I miss back when Gopher fans had fun things to say, and were fun to banter back and forth with. Now it is just "you suck, we're the best...blah blah blah..."

Of course, there are far fewer Sioux fans that post on here anymore either, so perhaps that has something to do with it too. Either way...this thread sucks...

:p:D:D

It's not an excuse when it's true. Just because you can't count to 17 doesn't mean UND has more than 17 healthy skaters.Is UND at the NCAA max for players that can be on the roster? No. Poor planning is not an excuse.

whats great is sioux fans laughing at the gophers after leddy and birkholtz left just before last season, they lost budish for the year and lost guys like barriball, bjugstad and matson for stretches and "only managed a 5th place finish". then the sioux lose an unproven kid thats never played a college game in his life (miller) and another that has like 1 career goal (grimaldi)- and several role players and they go on for a 4th place wcha finish in the weakest wcha in years, hakstol deserves coach of the year! precious..

One puts the onus of the loss on your own team, the other tries to deflect blame for a short coming. If you lose to Western, it will be because they had the better team, not because you are short-handed.

So poor planning is not an excuse but injuries is an excuse. Got it. What about poorly planned injuries? Would that be an excuse?

So, if someone disagrees with you, then they're a Troll? Got it :rolleyes:

This website was started by a Gopher fan. Perhaps you should remember that.

It depends if it happens to the Gophers or not.

Hooray! Another factoid from Dubbs about how Minnesota is the utopia of the world! At least this one is unique though. USCHO was started by a Minnesotan and everyone should suck up to everything Gopher because of it.

Who said injuries were an excuse?

Is it too late to bring in some more 25 year-old Canadians? ;)

You're right, I suppose it is polite to visit someone else's house, then rag on his family. Loose analogy, but I think my point is clear.

And why the insecurities in regard to how great I think Minnesota hockey is? Really puzzeling why my pride bothers you so much.

You did.

Plus the Whioux have been marketing how short handed they are all year so that they can have an excuse.
You have to at least pay attention to what you are saying in this thread, sport. Come on!

That is quite possibly the worst analogy I've ever read.

More of a terrible analogy than a loose one actually.

Whether or not a Gopher fan started this place is irrelevant. This website was created to be a national college hockey website, so the fanbase of those who created it does not matter. This was not and never was GopherPuckLive or SiouxSports, so making fun of one particular fanbase is in no way impolite. If a Michigan, Wisconsin or Maine fan started this website would you care when people made fun of the Wolverines, Badgers or Black Bears?

I think the analogy is fine. You just don't agree with the point I'm making. The site was started by a Gopher fan, so I think complaining about the fact that Gopher fans post here is a little out of line.

Seriously, genius. Your last post doesn't say that. In fact, it is still on the same page. In response to Dirty's sarcasm that we should all be sucking up to Gophers, you compared this place to going into a Gopher fan's home and ragging on his family.

This place is in no way a Gopher fan's home. Your colors are not blue and white, for starters, and despite your best efforts, the site is pretty indifferent overall to the Gophers.

If you're going to use a "website=place analogy", this is a public beach where the park attached to it was designed by a Gopher fan. If I want to call the Gophers scum sucking demons from hell on a public beach, you're going to have to suck it up and deal with it, or move your towel and umbrella somewhere else.
