The Badgers, fresh off a weekend sweep of the Best in the Southwest, fire up the ol' Wisco Lear jets and descend upon the Ralph to face the UND Voting Nicknames, who themselves spent last weekend getting Rocky Mountain High with Colorado College.

As Friday will mark the 167th meeting of these two teams (UW leads 86-68-12) I'm guessing by now you all know the drill.

UND "Who the hell knows" Sweep

BTW, Badgers fans did you know that a Grand Forks High School is nicknamed the Roughriders? Do you care? Does this confuse the hell out of you? No? Well, that's because you're not complete morons. I guess Grand Forks residents have taken one too many sandbags to the head.

With all the names and stuff relating to Teddy Roosevelt out there I just always assumed nothing else of interest has happened since his cattle died in the 1880's and he went home to New York.

I don't know... maybe Trump will open a Prairie casino for a couple years, then close it in bankruptcy. Then you guys could change your name to the Fighting Hair Pieces.

Let's not get carried away. I don't think UND has ever won a game against Bye. Heck, I don't think they've ever even scored a goal...

And let's face it, our defense is a little suspect.

The Sioux have been know to remove the hair pieces from people they don't like, that may be a good choice, but I don't think it made the final 3 triple double elimination name bracket.

The Sue just swept CC, they are worse than the BADgers are. They will be used to playing down a level, I think the BADgers can get an ambush in game one before getting massacred in game 2.

Maybe Boeser can score a hat trick and embarrass Eaves into resigning..... At least we have Kunin to hang our hat on.... Oh crap.....

I see Mr. Caggiulla has been given the gate for Friday. (http://www.collegehockeynews.com/news/2015/11/03_north_dakotas_caggiula_suspended.php)

This development has me concerned that rather than winning by four or five goals on Friday, UND will only win by three goals.

Will Eaves turn crazy a** shades of red during this series?

Will any becky players leave the team during this series?

Will the fighting no names get confused in the handshake line again and think it's the WWF?

So many questions for this intriguing match up.

Will Mr. Kunin stay with the Badgers one more week so he can tell his future NHL teammates he played at Engelstad Arena.

Apparently he's staying despite being told this week it wasn't just a weird typo on the schedule and he would have to actually set foot in Grand Forks. Gotta give him some props as I'm pretty certain they try and avoid mentioning that in the recruiting spiel.

So Caggiulla (who clearly made up his name pronunciation) is out, Kunin is in. Fast Eddie Wittchow has been pumping iron like a madman all summer and I can't help but feel he'll be disappointed he and Caggiulla don't get to meet up behind the net on Friday.

Caggiulla is a pretty big deal for you folks and even I must admit, a very good player. Anyone besides Dirty have any other concerns over a little line scrambling for the opener?

Well obviously he is staying the additional week just so he can say he played in a decent hockey rink in front of... you know, fans.

As for the line juggling, it's not too worrisome. Gersich will probably move up to play with Boeser(who chose to set foot in GF rather than the dumpster fire of the UW program) and Schmaltz. Gersich has proven more than capable of playing and scoring with those two.

Interesting that the top line will be a Minnesota legacy, a Wisco legacy commit, and what would have been another Wisco legacy what with Jordan bolting after 3 years of being committed to UW. Which isn't a knock on UND at all. Quite the opposite I suppose.

It appears Cagguila got pretty hosed on his suspension. It's certainly understandable why it was called like it was but I don't understand how he was suspended if they reviewed the play (https://twitter.com/UofHockeyBlog/status/661738054558748672). Not like it really matters though. UND could have a first line of Drake Mallard/Gosalyn Mallard/Launchpad McQuack and they'd still easily win on Friday.

Totally hosed. He didn't even drive the elbow up and in. Wow. Hockey and football are being pussified.

I fail to see how that hit is more than a penalty (and even that is iffy to me.)
