Oh I thought you were still in hiding after Friday night's debacle.

Yes, hiding behind our really big Cup.

Union is a good team with great goaltending. I would think a BC fan would want Union to advance to the Frozen Four, so they don't carry the embarrassment of being the last school that let an ECAC team get into the Frozen Four. ;)

Weren't they a good team with great goaltending last year as well? Come on now, everyone knows those Cornell teams were the exception with the ECAC. I do seem to recall BC doing something your Sioux couldn't do (and more recently)...beat Yale. But I suppose that just saved you guys the embarrassment of getting your asses whipped yet again by BC ;) Did I mention it ended in a national title? :D:p


The CCHA guy did pick UMD, actually. They and FSU just happen to use the same clip art program.

CCHA rep Ryan has Michigan over Western in the title game...


@GopherPuckLive: "All-sessions" ticket prices for each regional (before added fees) Bridgeport:$60... GreenBay: $66... Worcester: $83.50... St.Paul: $90.

Why such the big discrepancy? Who sets the ticket prices?

EDIT: @GopherPuckLive: Good point by a few tweeters.... The arena rental cost is probably why tickets are so much more expensive in St. Paul...

My guess is whoever is in charge knows that attendance in St. Paul and Worcester will be higher than GB and Bridgeport.

eagles fans???? You're playing bu - not bc. Bc are the eagles. Bu are the terriers...
Yes! I got one! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

We need more than just UND and UMN fans on here if we want to lock by tomorrow.

I'll let everyone know just as soon as I'm ever worried about what Gopher fans think of me. ;) :cool:

(or Sioux fans, for that matter)

I tell ya, if I wasn't a Badger fan I could/would crush us. Lots of material to work with. :D

I still rip us occasionally, but not nearly as much as I'd like to.

You got one. One. The rest of us aren't fooled that easily! ::shakes fist::

And you don't need anyone else. You're doing a fine job all on your own! Plus you have J.D., who never met a BU thread he didn't like. :)

Not even close. Never once have seen a blowout haircut on Comm Ave. But kudos on the MS Paint skills.

Hook, line, and sinker. How many BU fans do you estimate will be in attendance?

There was going to be a bus of students, but when the cost jumped up to an astronomical number, that plan was ditched. I know of about 10 friends of mine that are flying/busing out one way or another.

I have a call into UMD to see if it is OK to chant "Spay the Terriers" at the game. I haven't heard back yet.

(For those out east, UMD fans got in trouble for hostile and abusive chants when playing the Whioux.)

Come on, this thread has had very little to do with BU and it's not like I've gone out of my way to flame the Eagles...

It would be a better world if Gurt were allowed to design the logos for all the teams in the WCHA.

O. K. Not to flog a dead, rotting horse but...

1. I think many MN and UND fans are paying too much attention to the outcome of last week's game, rather than looking at how that game went down. Total domination by the Gophers (2 SOG for UND after 30 minutes), followed by a period where nearly everything UND threw at the net went in (it happens sometimes). The Gophers, weirdly, had no pushback whatsoever in the third period, but I think they were in shock. There is a long history between these teams of Dominate/Response/Domination reversal/Response/Domination re-reversal and so on. The Gophers will make adjustments, Lucia is not an idiot (um, or at least he didn't use to be...). As a North Dakota fan, I just don't want to see the Gophers again.

2. I would put the chance at UND/MN rematch at 30%. In other words, barely better than random chance. BU and WMU must be licking their chops, because this is one of those fun opportunities where they are away underdogs, but have a really good chance to win. I would put them at 52-48 type underdogs. If Western starts flying around and has some puck luck and gets a 1-0 or 2-0 lead, UND is going to be in big trouble. I would not view that as a remote possibility. MN is going to have a weird situation where they are supposedly the home team, but might have less than half of the arena rooting for them. I think that is going to energize BU - they're good enough to beat MN on a good night anyway.

BTW, if you want to see what North Dakota's New Jerseys look like...

http://undhockey.areavoices.com/?p=90854

IMO, not too bad, but I would like to see a better photo, and preferably in color to make my full decision.

Awesome!! If you look closely at the picture the jersey says North Dakoda. Ok, North Dakoda it is!
