I know. I fully expect the Gophers to raise a banner next season and start counting the Bulldogs' titles as their own.

I guess on the plus side, it gives the "State of Hockey" their seventh national championship, moving it into fifth place for states with the most national championships.

Don't be bitter. You're program also exists thanks to the state of Minnesota.

I didn't want to say it, but since you did, this is exactly what I was thinking. Why are we surprised that there are Gopher fans trying to take partial credit for this?

We're just celebrating. Its the U of M. I thought that would be clear.

Those Gopher fans are nuts. Most Gopher fans weren't even cheering for tUMD. They were, grudgingly, rooting for the C3P0s. Had some east coasters visiting, various schools, and they were utterly confused at the non-fandom of tUMD in the state.

Would you propose that all the Gopher jerseys at the game were worn by UMD fans? I guess anything is possible.

This whole urge to take personal ownership of the success of someone else's kids is so strange. I'm not dissing you, 5mn.

...which is why I was the first one on the site to congratulate the Bulldogs.

tUMD fans would never wear a Gopher jersey. Not a single Gopher fan we ran into today on our pub crawl (had about 12-15 people) met a Gopher fan rooting for tUMD. The fanbase is just that intolerable because they won ONE title. Honestly. That's it. They are not elite yet. Some good runs, sure, but not a blue-blood school. Yes, that is tArrogance talking, and it's justified.

I'm not sure where this personal ownership stuff is coming from. I'm just really pleased that they won an NC...and that's the case because they are geographic neighbors, full of Minnesotans and part of the U of M system. Its really not more complicated than that.

This thread would be better if there were more UMD fans that Biddco and UMD21 left on this site.

Best team of this decade so far, they earned a "little" respect tonight.

Biddy made it on the screen in the celebration...not unusual.

Congrats UMD! Loved the beer song (Bucci and HelmetHead were confused) and the pep band too!

Congrats! Bulldogs. I hope Biddy doesn't die from alcohol poisoning.

How in the hell
Yeah. The beloved DHG himself said the same thing. ***** talk happens but that’s sport. We’re just as perplexed.
