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.

To be fair, I believe that the complaints are only regarding certain Gopher fans (ahem), not all Gopher fans.

Looks like the fans picking UND has dropped since I last checked to 84%

<IMG SRC="http://mnhockeycentral.webs.com/Fan%20Picks.jpg"></>

Again, not saying that the metrics point to UND being heavy favorites, but the fans and media's perception seems to be that they are. So, don't be surprised to see the media make a big deal out of Western win should they pull off the upset.

LOL at nobody picking Union as well as one guy picking Cornell.


- The Gophers were REALLY good that year. Heading down the stretch and into the NCAAs, they were the only team that could go toe to toe with the Badgers and possibly beat them. Both teams had been number one for large stretches of that season and both were loaded with talent. To be honest, they were the only team that I didn't want to see in the FF, even though they hadn't beaten the Badgers when we had Elliot.

I seem to remember BC and Cornell going toe to toe with the almighty Badgers...both times in your backyard. Didn't win, but certainly went toe to toe in hostile environments.


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.

Is Bobby Valentine from Minnesota? He claims to have invented the wrap sandwich...

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

There is plenty of credit... I mean blame to go around for this thread sucking. Enough on both the Gopher and whioux side. But that being said let's agree to just blame Gurt. He's the only one blatently trolling with no vested interest in the region. All in favor? :D

Agreed.

Plus the Whioux have been marketing how short handed they are all year so that they can have an excuse. Of course, reality is somewhat different than that.

Maybe most of us are more realistic than the average Gopher fan. I thought last year's team was the best in college hockey. I thought they were rightfully favored to win it all. Of course, it's hockey. Better yet, it's one and done hockey, so anything can happen.

I was referring to going into the NCAAs and the context of the Gophers losing that first Friday night. Going into the tourney, neither Cornell or BC were seen as sure contenders.

I've said elsewhere that Cornell gave us a heck of a time - easily our biggest challenge.

I recently re-watched the game against BC and I wouldn't say that BC went "toe to toe" with us other than on the scoreboard. The chances were heavily in favor of the Badgers and the game could have easily been a 5-1 affair. That said, it wasn't and BC had a chance at the end.

How do you even know this? Why would you even care?

Is there an Accomplishments by Minnesotans in Hockey handbook or something?

Unfair! I have interest. It's just hater/negative interest. ;):D:p

There is. However, JDubbs Copy is quite worn out, and most of the pages are stuck together. :p:D:D

Hate the player, not the game! Besides I was just attempting to through something out there to unite this thread give it a chance to suck a little less. Sorry Dubbs, but looks like it may shift to you instead of Gurt. I tried.

:D

Yes, it looks something like this.

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.

No one cares.

That's because you're a dumb***.

This site was created to allow hockey fans across the country to read about and discuss college hockey. It isn't GPL or its predecessor POI.

Of course, it has turned into a melting pot of morons, but that's neither here nor there.

I don't believe I EVER advocated for ANY sort of exclusitivity in who can or should post here. On the contrary, it was FS23 who lamented Gopher fans who "troll" (aka.. Have thoughts and opinions he doesn't agree with) here. I was just pointing out that it is rather rude to wish for the exclusion of Gopher fans on this site when the site's very existence is owed to a Gopher fan. Perhaps you would have known that had you followed the discussion in its entirety.

May I clarify something? Thanks.

I wasn't trying to put WMU possibly beating UND on the same level as Holy Cross beating Minnesota. I was just trying to make a joke about buying up all the WMU gear we can find to mock what some UND fans did with Holy Cross jerseys in that instance. It's not something I even plan on doing. I was just trying to make a funny and it did not work(apparently). I was in no way trying to compare WMU to the Holy Cross debacle.

I've followed the discussion, genius. Wishing for the banishment of Gopher trolls (or trolls of any other allegiance) isn't remotely rude regardless of the affiliation of who started this site. Repeatedly steering threads off-topic makes you a tool, and nobody likes you. I can tolerate the typical UW or UND fan far better than I can tolerate you, and that is saying something because most of them are the rough equivalent of *** fungus.
