No...the Cooper rejects went to Richfield or St. Louis Park...sort of like the Potkins/Wayzata rejects went to Tonka :D

Try again, Sweet Pea.

The fans don't pull the football away.

We fans are simply observers in the folly that is SCSU hockey.

No, in this case the role of Lucy is played by the SCSU hockey team which, like Lucy, will annually convince their gullible protagonists (Charlie Brown) that this years attempt at success will somehow be different from the prior attempts.

And every year, like Charlie Brown's attempts to kick that football, SCSU's attempts at success.....fall flat.

So in other words, no SCSU fan should ever think that our team, that is getting better players and has better coaching, should actually be expected to get better.....got it. :rolleyes:

They'll get better.



Just not enough to stop sucking.

Everyone thinks their team will be better - someone has to continue to suck.

Oh you can expect the team to get better. Charlie Brown expects to kick the football every year, too.

I posted this earlier today on GPL and I may as well post it here too.


I went to Chris Heisenberg's list today just to put myself together a list of current recruits so I could sort of keep track of them in my head a pay attention to how they do this year for their prospective teams.

It looks like this is what he has up there for players, teams, and possible years to be coming to the Gophers. Anyone have any corrections? Especially the teams they're playing for this year.

I'm an Air Force brat

Based on previous posts, you've been demoted from a brat to a weenie.:p


Everyone thinks their team will be better - someone has to continue to suck.

And after three seasons of "suck" and fan catastrophic neurosis, let's hope the Gophers will break their streak this year.:p

Coaches have been on the ice with the team since Sept. 15 for a 2 hrs/wk max. according to NCAA rules. Officially the first Gopher practice is Oct. 3. The University of British Colombia Thunderbirds are coming to Minnesota to play exhibitions next week at UMD on Sat. Oct 3 and the Gophers the next day on Sun. Oct 4. The 2009-10 Gopher hockey season is about to begin!


And Handy knows about having a defense that sucks.

I think Jones and Finley defined that category didn't they?;)

Apologize if this has been discussed. Never had a need to know but now may have a reason to.

Does FSN transmit Gopher hockey games in HD?

Please advise.

Thanks!

I'm already a DirecTV subscriber. Who carries inexpensive converter boxes?

FSN has an HD channel yes, but Gophers games are not in HD.

Gopher Games are NOT in HD and it was posted at GPL that none of them this year will be in HD.

Pretty sure the only Gopher games you can see in HD are the three on BTN.

Disappointing, but I guess it shouldn't be a shocker given Gopher hockey has to be down on the list of FSN North priorities (unless the Wolves have been relegated to D-League).

I'm not sure how DISH handles it but I know my Comcast has two stations for FSN North, one in HD and one not and the one in HD is usually just a bunch of bars cause not much of their programming is in HD except for all the Twins games and some of the Wild and T-Wolves games.

USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Men's College Hockey Poll (http://blogs2.startribune.com/blogs/gophers/2009/09/28/u-mens-puck-gophers-6th-in-national-poll/#more-988) has the Gophers in 6th and 2nd in the WCHA behind Denver.
