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.

The Gophers played great for 2/3 of the game and decided to quit or coast into the final. Looks like that attitude worked out for them. :Rolls Eyes:

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...

Uh, why would you, and when did you ever, flame your own team? :confused: (You do realize that flaming is negative, right?) My point is that you, as a staunch BC Eagles fan, has more posts in the regional thread where BU is playing than BU fans have posts. Which is your right and pretty much par for the course as far as BU threads are concerned. And you will most likely continue to post here, as is your choice, so the post count will continue to grow! That's a good job outta you. :)

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

Yes, that is what it says. Thank God for the Minnesota educational system. It has teachers like Biddy and churns out students like you.

That one in the first row certainly looks that way. That would be too funny and too fitting!

#5's jersey appears to be spelled correctly.

They will also have a sizable crowd on their side - WMU will have the Gopher fans and BU will have the Sioux fans.

Not sure if crowd really matters, but it will be there.

You missed the joke in there...

I just don't see any correlation between me posting in this thread and posting in the BU thread when my posts in this thread haven't been about BU.

So now that you've shown yourself to be barely literate, you're relying on fans that you constantly call idiots and hicks? Rather convenient.

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.)

Given BU's off the ice issues this season, that's gold.

And I meant that it didn't matter whether or not your posts were or were not actually about BU (which some were, but that's fine as this thread is about the regional BU is in). You are in here posting. More than BU fans are. It just seems like you've posted in this thread more than in the Northeast Regional thread, where your team is playing. You certainly haven't posted as much in the East Regional thread. I haven't checked out the Midwest Regional thread because, well, I only have so much time to waste in the day people!!!! Would you be in this thread as much if BU were not in this regional? Personally, I would say no, but given the nature of the UM-UND rivalry, you might be, though maybe not to the extent you are here now, IMO. I could be wrong. And all your posts are helping increase the post count, which is by far higher than the other three.

Would be very fun to get this thread complete and locked before the puck drops.

I think the type of momentum switch you saw in last week's Gopher/Sioux match is due more to a letdown by one team than a surge by the other. The Gopher's apparent "total domination" was made possible by UND's uninspired play. Same thing later when the Gophers appeared to be in shock. Teams in this tourney will feast off a letdown.

Fascinating.

But considering they have been mixing up BU/BC & Eagles/Terriers there was a decent chance half the people in the thread didn't get it.

But thanks for your input.

LOL. I didn't even think of it that way. I was going for the fact that you spay females, not males.

And all of the Terrier / Eagle "confusion" has been 100% intentional. Just to be clear.
