UND Women Set to Battle the Minnesota Gophers (http://thehockeywriters.com/und-women-set-to-battle-the-minnesota-gophers/)

Minnesota has lost five times in the last 89 games at home. UND has four of those wins.

“We don’t want to look to far ahead, but the Pairwise (rankings) are very important,” Williams said. “We take every game as if it’s a playoff game and we won’t change for the Gophers either. We’re going to play them as if it’s a playoff game.”Hopefully. UND is 0-7 against Minnesota in postseason games.

Pretty impressive though. UND has 2 of the last 3 wins over the Gophers...and 3 of the last 5. After Wisconsin, this could be a dangerous weekend.

My money's on Hirschy positioned at D this weekend. Is that a bold prediction? ;)

The members of the Gopher junior class have never lost to a team that doesn't wear green. (Sorry, pgb; that was a tie.)

In my opinion, it's not unreasonable to think the Bulldogs will go 18-0 over their next nine series:

Lindenwood
Mankato
SCSU
Cornell (Before Cornell's loss to BC, I would have said this would be the 'Dogs toughest matchup but the Big Red has a lot of work to do)
Bemidji
Ohio State
Bemidji
SCSU
Mankato

I'll be a little more realistic and say they go 15-2-1 over this stretch giving them a huge momentum swing heading into the final four weeks against UND, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ohio State

Those are some pretty gaudy marooon and unrine colored glass you are wearing. I'd take them off before you start your car.

LOL. Tell me where you see more than 2 MAYBE 3 losses coming in to play here. I say split vs Cornell with a loss to Ohio State and a tie with Bemidji

Past performance is no guarantee of future results
although I think there's a professor around who claims it does work for amoeba's or something and then generalizes it to hockey teams

it's not unreasonable, but it's also not realistic
you are correct, they should go 15-2-1 over those games
but I'm guessing it will be more like 12-4-2

LOL, what a bonehead

and stop whining about the Pioneer Press
judging from the crowd that showed up, can you blame the PP for their blunders?
besides, most people working for the newspaper these days are kids a year or two out of school whose only qualification is a Twitter account and participation on Facebook.

Regarding the attendance at Ridder Arena on Friday night, my opinion is that the university is clueless when they schedule the men's and women's hockey home games to overlap. It makes attending both difficult at best, and I'm sure there are some folks (maybe not many, but "some") whom would normally come to Ridder but are scared away by the traffic and parking situations.

It makes attending both difficult at best, and I'm sure there are some folks (maybe not many, but "some") whom would normally come to Ridder but are scared away by the traffic and parking situations.

It's always been a pet peeve of mine, and it seems to be worse since the Gopher men joined the Big Ten Conference. Their schedule was not finalized until very late, and the main reason why had to do with television, now that BTN is in the picture in addition to FSN and ESPN-U. When it was just FSN life was much simpler, as game times were almost always at 7:07 CT. Now, much like college football, game times can vary quite a bit (like tonight, an 8:00 start).

As this appears to be the rule rather than the exception going forward, it's too bad the women's games couldn't be scheduled so as not to conflict so much with the men's. But doing so is made difficult by virtue of the fact that the women start their season earlier, and they and other teams need to set their own schedules in advance too. I guess I just need to learn how to accept the present less-than-ideal situation and adjust accordingly.

With respect to parking, the combined attendance tonight was 11,238 (9,579 men's + 1,659 women's). With the game times just an hour apart, this did put a lot of pressure on nearby parking lots.

Regarding the attendance at Ridder Arena on Friday night ...

it looks like the big difference between the two games was there were a lot of families and kids on Saturday, so you are probably right,


my opinion is that the university is clueless ...

I've gotten exactly 2 emails over the years regarding GWH and NO info about season tickets :confused:

Bucky Badger sends me an email about every 2 weeks telling me whats going on at UW :eek:

After last season I tried to increase my season ticket order from 2 to 4 seats. Eventually I was informed that there just were NOT any season tickets available anywhere near where I now sit.

Meanwhile, neither of the two seats next to us has been occupied even a single time yet this season.

No clue.

No clue.

Yes, when we got our season tickets they claimed there were only scattered pairs and singles. But the whole row in front of the seats we sit in (not our assigned corner seats) had been vacated by season ticket holders that moved across the arena. This year they offered us a ton of choices when we said we wanted to move. I have no idea WTH goes on in the ticket office.
