Oh eff it I'll make this thread. I would be surprised if UMD played Wisconsin in Duluth ever again. Which is less of a big deal than playing in Madison. Had a blast last time when I road tripped there. This series is definetly sweep-able for UMD as Wisconsin was swept in their opening weekend, and had the awkwardness of playing Bye U. their second week. I'm not buying a top 4 finish for Wisconsin, after their two below average years they have a lot to prove to me before they content for home ice.

UMD hasn't lost on Fridays but hasn't won on Saturdays.

UMD sweeps.

I really don't know what to expect from UW. They certainly way underachieved against NM in 2 low scoring affairs. They do have a lot to prove and as a Badger fan I'm not so confident they will prove they are a top 4 team either this weekend. The first weekend sure looked like the same old song a different year.

I do hope UW schedules some n/c games with UMD in the future. Historically and geographically it makes sense and UMD would provide a good n/c opponent.

I always meant to make this road trip (for a UW v. tUMD series) and now I may never.

I also hope that we schedule tUMD in the future. Where else we gonna go in Minnesota? St. Cloud? Mankato? :eek:


I'm optimistic that we'll get at least 2 points.

Word on the street is UW wont schedule with SCSU bc SCSU wants a one for one and UW said no. Not sure if they have the same demands with tUMD and if Duluth will give in

I had heard UMD tried to do a home and home with Michigan but they wouldn't make the trip to Duluth. I have a feeling Wisconsin will do the same.

I bet they will travel to Duluth, but for a two-for-one deal

Hard to blame them for not wanting to leave the Yost Mahal.

My wife and I were the same way for a while after we remodeled. Of course, we didn't line the interior of our home with tin foil, but everyone's tastes are different.

I'll believe it when I see it. But I'd be okay with two Madison road trips :D

It would seem Badgers are awful at riding their mopeds...

With how many accidents Badger players have you'd think they would be driving around that time!

Two for none is more realistic.

Only NCHC teams that get anything close to a one-for-one are North Dakota and Denver.

UW has set up long term home-and home deals with CC/DU, und, and BC/BU. Not sure how many more of those UW can make.

As someone mentioned in the Miami/Michigan game thread, Miami and Michigan may be talking about a long term scheduling deal.

R. Little-Dahl-S. Littlesince Lee is out I expect the Wisconsin power play to be very weak. Which is good because UMD is current 8th in the nation in penalties.

Really wondering who will get the start for tUMD. McNeely played well, Crandall has been decent, and we have yet to see Fons. Maybe a McNeely-Fons weekend? Also, Farley needs to see ice timeall weekend. The logic behind a healthy scratch last Saturday played very well into ND's win. With that being said, Austyn Young played with heart too.

Those B1G schools are all about the money, so I have to assume the Miami draws well in Ann Arbor. Otherwise Michigan probably wouldn't be willing to enter into a long term scheduling deal and would probably add UND, BU, or BC instead.
