No. Just seriously tired of the constant, over-the-top chest thumping from so many Minne fans.

I don't think it's chest thumping in this case. Not by a mile. Minnesota should be in the conversation for top team heading into this season and I think I more than adequately articulated why. If you have a problem with that, maybe you're the guy with the bias in this case.

On "paper", you'd have to say that MN is the preseason #1. That being said, I believe that by the end of the season, BC and maybe a couple other teams could be just as good.

I think a case can be made for a handful of teams being in the top spot heading into the season.

"After scoring 12 goals as a freshman, Bjugstad netted 25 goals last season. No one is predicting the 6-foot-5 forward will make a similar leap as a junior, but assuming he doesn’t forego his final two seasons of college eligibility, Bjugstad could surpass the 40-goal plateau. The Gophers are arguably college hockey’s highest-profile team; if they emerge as national title challenger in 2012-13, Bjugstad will spend plenty of time in the spotlight."

you should probably learn to deal with it. College hockey's highest profile team is always going to get extra hype and attention.

Notre Dame football isn't getting hype and attention? I disagree. And as for comparing success in the sports:

College Football <> College Hockey

No wonder I don't read INCH


Minnesota is ranked too high.

Can you please explain the symbol between "College Football" and "College Hockey? It looks like a 'less than' symbol followed by a 'greater than' symbol, which doesn't make any sense to me.

My comment wasn't chest thumping. Minnesota should be in the discussion of top team heading into next season. They are returning more scoring than any other team, they lose no one on defense, and have a good recruiting class coming in. The only real question, on paper, is their goaltending.

Minnesota fans being optimistic about their team isn't anymore "chest thumping" than any fan of any other team feeling positive about their team. I supported my stance. If you disagree with me, explain why instead of whining that my opinion of the Gophers is too positive for you..

And I have JDUBBS on ignore. If you haven't learned already and done the same, that's your problem.

After a decade of dominence I don't know how bc isn't the highest profile team going. Surprised inch doesn't have more east coast bias being owned by espn.

As for minnesota, they have survived plenty of bad goaltending in the past (helen briggs, crazy frazee, alex wangas, etc) and now that his team doesn't suck anymore tDon can resuming his assinine "rather lose 6-5 than win 1-0" attitude he had to abandon when the rodents couldn't score.

So what is UW's plan, seeing as how they still suck?

I have trouble respecting a program like Minnesota. Going out of state to get kids like Potulny/Vanek (top program from the "state of hockey" recruiting out of state and out of country?) and then resorting to the trap when they get their players on the ice. No respect. :D

I did enjoy seeing BC run a train on Minnesota in Tampa though! Poor Jdubbs must have been so dehydrated from all that crying. :D

Championships won with only in-state players

Minnesota: 2
Every Other Team (Including Yours): 0 :D

And every team traps, including the Gophers. I really wonder if you even understand what the trap is.

History. Tradition. Respect.
Deal. With. It.

I think they'll be in the top 3 in the WCHA, which should put them in the top 10 overall. I don't have a problem with UW where they are at.
