Despite the fact that the actual 1st place team in the conference is the only team that's beaten you in your own building all season? The only game you've lost, as well this season, that you scored first in?

Looked like a couple pretty evenly matched teams to me. I begrudgingly give you the edge on the power play and in goal right now, but, the season isn't over, either.

When Searfoss scored with 2:02 left on Saturday night in our 3-2 loss we could hear sphincters puckering in Mariucci all the way down here in Omaha.

You might have the better team when it's all said and done but I think some of it just might be that Coach Blais just knows how to play a game against a Lucia coached team.

Does anybody know what the all time Blais vs. Lucia record is? I don't. And, my impression about their head-to-head has been formulated since we joined the WCHA, only.

I've seen the Gophers play many times on the tube this year so far and the best performances by any of your opponents against you I have seen this this season has been by us with apologies to Mankato. I did not see those particular games. I also did see the Tech series, but we swept them in their own building right after you split with them and they aren't really a factor in this conversation as they are in 11th place.

Even if you win the two games in hand right now that would only earn you a tie for first. UNO and Mankato have 2 of the easiest 3 schedules remaining in the WCHA (AA is the other). We only have 4 games left with teams that are even tucs right now. Two of those are this weekend.

If we come out of this weekend still in first, I really like our chances. The defense needs to stiffen up some. That's my only real concern.

While the Virg Foss is a nice trophy, I will take a Frozen Four trip and a chance at a NC instead which the Gophers have a great chance at. You go ahead and grab your Virg Foss though and hold your head high.

... and the MacNaughton isn't even close to being settled yet btw.

Why is it that you if you even step foot out of your own team's thread other posters give you negative rep? Apparently honest, respectful discussion is only okay if you're a fan of that team.
Depending what fan base they are from, it really doesn't matter if it is honest and respectful or mean and hateful. They will neg rep you anyway. I have two guesses as to which fan base it was.

How did that Blais coached team do last season against Minnesota? It was pretty **** quite in the Link when Parenteau scored that OT winner. Oh wait, no it wasn't because there was a large contingent of Gopher fans celebrating!:p;)

In all seriousness, I don't know why you worry so much about national recognition, rankings, and all that blah blah blah. I think UNO played Minnesota at a good time. Minnesota seems to be putting it together of late and that was most definitely not the case when UNO was in town. Obviously no one here is saying Minnesota will run the table the rest of the way, but after their little run out of the break here, I think it is safe to say Minnesota is not someone many teams will want to play. Just enjoy the ride, dude. You worry to much!:D

The glass runneth over. You can't beat BC and ND back-to-back and not be filled with optimism. He can't take it.

I was wondering the same thing... was at 95% the last I saw, after the 4-0/8-1/4-1 run the past two weeks.

Do you pull the sig for gamedays or something now, Scoobs?

Interesting that the forum doesn't include sigs on mobile posts... usually that sort of thing is tied to the account.

I'm guessing the glass would have been at 100% for at least a while back at the end of the 2002 and 2003 seasons...

That takes a high level of 'dooshy-ness' to get to the Jan Brady benchmark.
