Do you have any proof this isn't true either? Or are you just Don Adaming it like JDubbs is?

You admitted as much ;)

Good thing you did too, because it's pretty easy to deduce. Gophers play more games on TV and have a lot more viewers.

Dear UND - Hope you enjoy watching the games in HD this weekend. You're welcome, it's our pleasure. I guess we just take watching games in HD for granted.

Sincerely

I was going to vote for one of these jerseys as being the best of all time, but after much deliberation I decided they all suck.

How is the '86-'87 white losing to the '06-'07 black? I didn't think UND fans could be any lamer.


And sadly JDUBBs has left his mark (stain?) in another thread.

I'm not sure why North Dakota would write that letter to the university, but more proof that North Dakota is the "State of Hockey"!!! :p:D:D

I don't know...I voted for the '86-'87 whites (one of my favorite jerseys in UND history). But, that sort of thing happens when you're the most followed team in north america :p:D:D

Yeah, we do take that for granted. Can you imagine being a fan of a program with only enough fans to justify broadcasting just the home games and only in standard definition?

Man would that suck. Thank God we follow a big boy program with a significant number of followers :D

And you show your true colors once again. Sadly, they aren't maroon and gold :(

Because US broadcasts are not played in Canada. I'm surprised that TSN doesn't carry UND games.

Gopher fans always complain about North Dakota having Canadian players, get over it! Canada is a hockey hot bed and kids grow up in Manitoba and other provinces wanting to play at UND. Go ahead and criticize it all you want but if you say you wouldn't want a player like Toews or Frattin because they're Canadian then you're out of your mind.

The banners look a little less defined in Standard definition, but we deal.

Hockey hotbed!? Did you see their results in the World Juniors the last 2 years? Jump ship while you can. Hockey in Canada is clearly in a spiral. Where will UND get their players now? Oh wait, they are used to not winning in the tournament. Hakstol has taught them something...

It's surprising you love Canada so much considering the number of your recruits that have wound up in Canadian Juniors lately ;)

Too bad you don't have more fans to enjoy them.

It's a shame :(

TV Fans don't count. Hence the SD broadcasts.

Well UND will continue to take blue chip recruits from Minnesota (like Parise, Oshie, Kristo, etc) and they'll find gritty role players and goal scorers from Canada. And don't talk about postseason choking as a Gophers fan, coming from the school that has missed the NCAA tourney 3 times in the last decade

Yup. Typical of plug-n-play programs. When the amount and quality of talent getting imported drops, they struggle. Can't close the deal.

They'll still import a confused kid from Minnesota here and there, but their bread and butter North of the border isn't producing the gems it used to. That and the quality of players in this country has increased. Doubt will see UND win it all for quite some time.

Just like how the big up and comers from Minnesota have been committing to UND? Oh yeah, just like that.

So what I say is fact? Awesome! In that case UND has more fans than Minnesota. Conversation over.

They count. UND just doesn't have enough of them to justify a quality TV contract. They try sooooooooooooooo hard to one up Minnesota, but they'll always be the smaller, less significant program to our immediate West.

Nope, but the fact that you've flip flopped on this topic several times does prove your opinions are useless.

The fact that we consistently have much higher TV ratings for Gopher hockey games than UND proves we have the Gophers have a larger following.

Simple math :D
