So much this.

I hate the Whioux so much. The WI rivalry pales in comparison for me.

Nothing compares to the Gopher Sioux rivalry - Friday night will be a tight one, but Sat the Gophers hang a 6 spot on the board 4-3 and 6-2 for the Gophers Sweep.

The reason that this whole at least four years off thing is such a **** shame. This is the best rivalry in the sport. (Western bias)

Are you guys telling me that you don't think UND and UMn will play regularly in the ooc part of the season?!

Serious, we're only going to have 5 other teams in our conf. Thats only 20 games if we play each team 4 times. The average season is what? 35-40 games about, right? You telling me that we aren't going to scedule at least one weekend serious with UND?!


Btw, reading through the thread tonight, after consuming a little vodka, I was laughing my friggin arse off. Hilarious ****!!! Man, what a week, Michigan in BB, UND in hockey. life is good if you are a Gopher fan.

I bet you two gazillion smack-a-roos that the gophers are too scared to schedule UND in at least 4 years!!!! What say you my vodka chugging gopher friend??!?!!? I know it sounds crazy... I mean would Lucia and minnesota's athletic department really destroy the greatest rivalry in college hockey??!? NO WAY!!!

BTW, take my bet please.

Haha, with a 144-129-14 overall record against the sue the Gophers aren't scared.

Just another team (of many) that we have more wins than losses against.

Lucia and/or the MN athletic department aren't going to destroy this rivalry. That was already fait accompli once the larger forces that be reorganized the conference structures.

People need to disabuse themselves of this comical notion that MN's decision to not schedule UND for ooc games for a few years is going to "destroy the rivalry." Even if the teams continued to play a couple of times a year, the rivalry would still go by the wayside. It has to. They aren't in the same conference anymore, and as a consequence, the games don't mean anything beyond the normal pwr implications that all ooc games hold.

It has been a great rivalry because it holds all the necessary ingredients for one. A couple of great programs. Very close proximity, geographically. The games usually mean something. Even when one team is down, the other team is usually fighting for something and playing the spoiler is always fun. You have multiple meetings each year, in different locations, so the animosity can grow.

Once the conference affiliation is gone, a very important aspect of that relationship is gone with it. What we'd be left with are a couple of good games each year. But you wouldn't see anywhere near the same intensity, at least after a couple of seasons.

Ha!

The Gophers are the cheapest, dirtiest, whiniest team ever to lace up skates. And it comes from their coach who never, ever corrects it. It's a culture thing.
LOL!

That is quite the hypocritical comment considering the **** your "Hack" of a coach condones....

This is pure foolishness. Blood obviously thought Rau was about to be hit by a pop bottle that had been launched from the stands and did what any logical person would, tackled him. What kind of coach wouldn't condone his players attempting to protect their fellow athletes?

Well said. This rivalry will be what Michigan is today a nice comfortable rivalry but no where like it is today. Look for Michigan to replace und within four years. When I was growing up the Ichigan games were up there with the BADgers and what was then called Sioux.

If you hate the Sioux so much, why do you like us Sioux fans so much?

Did they ever beat them in their "own" game? I don't think so.
