The rivalry is barely hanging on. With Minnesota ducking the Sioux for the last 6years it's taken a back seat to Saint Cloud , Duluth and Denver. It's still fun to watch but nothing to really get juiced about anymore.

Heck UND fans don't think UM as the best team in Minnesota anymore, they have been behind both Saint Cloud and UMD for some time

Minnesota has been the 4th best team in the state for awhile. :)

Agreed. I would much rather North Dakota beat Denver than Minnesota. Of course, I live in Colorado...so that may have something to do with that. As for SCSU and/or Duluth, it's probably about equal in comparison to Minnesota.

The rivalry is certainly a shell of its former self...which I believe was one of Lucia's goals in pushing to not continue the rivalry after realignment.

Best Duck ever. It is still fun to watch.

I can only speak for myself, but you are the next game up for us. I was curious as to how this past weekend went for you guys, as that could affect this next game. I like to hear thoughts of opposing fans, status of the team, etc. :) It's not personal. Well, until puck drop. Then you all can die in a fire. After the game, though, I'd be happy to have a beer with...most of you all. :)

I see a few MSU fans here and last I checked there's a game coming up between the programs. :)

No one knows, last I heard. It should've been, unless Vegas underestimated hockey (which had been their reputation). I would think that after the Knights' season, this might be rectified in the future, if given the right matchup.

Didnít get to watch a lot of either game as itís harvest season but what I did see was UND had some trouble with their team speed. Kato is a good team. They will make the tourney come March. UNDís goalies were horrid Friday night but much better Saturday. The one positive is they scored 8 goals after only scoring 2 total against Bemidji. Not sure what their identity is yet but one thing it isnít team speed. Should be a good one in Vegas a game that should of been picked up by CBS Sports or NBCSN.

I would imagine the organizers didn't think they could justify the costs against their anticipated ticket sales.

On team speed: "Team speed, for crissakes, you get [expletive] [expletive] fleas on the [expletive] bases, getting picked off trying to steal, getting thrown out, taking runs away from you. You get them big [expletive] who can hit the [expletive] ball out the ballpark and you can't make any [expletive] mistakes." --Earl Weaver

UND seemed to be playing the classic Gopher style of hockey: go ahead and score 4, we'll score 5. Unfortunately, that isn't really sustainable overall.

Bucky at the Ralph this weekend. Hopefully the guys can keep the momentum going. If they have the ferocious forecheck like they did against Minny, Bucky will be in trouble. The Ralph will be rocking starting tonight at 7:30

Bulldog rejects against State will be a good series this weekend also.
