Another Border Skirmish with the red team. Gophers are 168-94-23 all-time against the BADgers in the longest rivalry in Gopher history (1922). I wonder if Tony Granato will get the team above .500 this season? Will Menards in Madison have a 2 for 1 paint thinner sale on Sunday? So many questions...so little time.

Go...

Sorry EDIT:

UW does have a better record than you schlubs. When is the last time UW played the rodents and UW had a better record?

I've been lurking in your thread....Motzaball Man says his team is soft, the fans agree they are spineless and gutless.

BADgers sweep.

These both seem like kind of bipolar teams to me. Hard to know which teams will show up this weekend. Hopefully not the same Gopher team that "played" Friday night against Mankato. Didn't watch Saturday but sounded like a little better effort but still not the outcome we wanted.

Gophers have had good recent success in Madison, I'll say split.

BADgers sweep.

I believe the answer to that is February, 2011. They were close in February, 2017.

How soon before Motzkoball joins the Fleckster's club and puts paddles on the hockey helmets and simplifies the jerseys with all last names being the same? I know spelling can be a burden on you folks. I truly did like the real gold trim instead of that urine colored crap on the FB team's uni's. Anything's better than the urine colored crap except for crap colored crap.

That was a fun weekend even though the Gophers lost the outdoor game. That was my first (and only) trip to Madison, the outcome of that Friday game in Madison was fun before roadtripping the rest of the way to Chicago.

You're bitter this week, eh?

I'm willing to give Motzko a year or two before we compare him to the cheerleader/boat rower who pretends to be a football coach.

😀

In college I made a few trips up to Minneapolis for the border battle. I have nightmares of Bonin, Crowley, Rasmussen et al. We had a great time despite the losses because our group were and are really into music and headed to 7th Sreet Entry/1St Ave afterward once or twice.

One of the trips we saw Arcwelder at a place called Rathskeller?

I fully intend to make another trip to Madison in the next few years. We had a good time the Hockey City Classic weekend* but I'd enjoy a full weekend series in Madison. I would have gone with the GPL crew this weekend but having done the Vegas trip already against UND a couple weekends ago it just wasn't in the cards.

*Everyone was very nice to us save for one little boy while we were walking to the game who looked at us, saw the Gopher jerseys, and said, "Badgers are better!!" before getting scolded by his mother but he made us laugh.:D Then there was one guy behind us at the game who was mad because the Gophers scored most or all of their goals on the powerplay at Kohl Center that night so we plainly told him, "Tell your team to quit taking penalties, then." LOL!

That’s hilarious. That badger fan should know Badger Bob had a power play that one season clicked at 38%! Drove Herb Brooks nuts. Bob said “we’ll play you even 5 on 5 and beat you on the power play”

Brooks said that was a “pansy way to play hockey”

I wish I had been old enough to see Johnson vs Brooks coaching and how they’d needle each other in the press before games.

Looking forward to some smash mouth hockey this weekend. Both teams have lost three of their last four. Desperation looms large in this series as neither team can afford to fall behind in B1G conf. play. Last season Gophers destroyed and outscored the BADgers 11-3 with a sweep on senior weekend at the Kohl. I think this series will be a much closer defensive battle. PP could be the deciding factor in this series. Go Gophers! BADgers suck. :D
