Gophers lost last time they played UAA. But you wouldn't know that by reading these threads.

Gopher fans seem to be overlooking UAA and instead are talking about a playoff run. I hope this attitude also infects the Gopher hockey players and they too overlook UAA. Would be nice to see UAA win the series and put an end to the Gophers season.:)

I understand wanting to show confidence in your favorite team, but it should be tamed with a bit of reality. At last years FF, I didn't have much hope The Sioux could run the table, but they did, as the Bulldogs did the year before. Could this be the Seawolves year? Hope not as a Sioux fan, and sure wouldn't want the Gophers to do it too. Gopher fans need something to cling to, lets hope they lose their grip!

I've watched college hockey long enough to know that absolutely anything can happen. Saying that, after last weekend, I would be shocked if Tech was able to win a game. They would need a hurculean effort by Genoe and the guys in front of him to limit North Dakota's chances. IF they were to win, I would think it would be something of a 2-1 type game.

where did you get that idea?

"For us to be successful, we've got to be strong defensively. You look at the three upsets in the playoffs last weekend (ECAC, CCHA), all three were upsets by the road team.

"The series all went three games. All three series were identical 2-1 scores (in the deciding game), so we're not going to beat North Dakota 9-8. That's not going to be our avenue for success."
never mind

Generally speaking, the home team is the favorite to win in a playoff situtation. So wouldn't it have been kind of tough for a home team to pull an upset last weekend? :p :D

Not always true. The Gophers are always the favorite, whether they're at home or on the road for the playoffs.

Can't underestimate the power of wanting a shot at that automatic bid;) It may just be enough to squeeze out that 2-1 game against an over confident team. (+ hangovers?)
Of course, it's still more of a joke. I wouldn't place a bet in vegas even if it's available.

If the Sioux are over confident then an upset could definitely happen. I think a lot of Sioux fans are looking at this weekend (and the Final Five if we make it) and how we come out and play. Do we dominate like last weekend? Or do we come out over confident and let Tech control play and perhaps win a game? If we dominate this weekend and next weekend, I'll be looking forward to the NCAA Tournament. If we come out and play poorly, lose a game to Tech and then bow out in the Semis at the Final Five, I won't get my hopes up for the NCAAs.

Oh come on, the river hasn't even started to thaw and you're already sandbagging.

FWIW, Fargo actually has been doing that. So technically North Dakota has been sandbagging for weeks already.

I'm not sandbagging. I clearly said in an earlier post that I would be shocked if North Dakota didn't win this series in two.
