As a Sioux fan, I'm intrigued to know if Denver fans think CC or UND will be a bigger rival in the NCHC? I'm assuming CC because of proximity. However, I'm not so sure that Denver hasn't become the biggest NCHC rival for me--over Duluth. Duluth is close and they'll be a good rival. However, the historical success of Denver and UND makes it the most intriguing rivalry in the NCHC for me.

Among the serious hockey fans, its UND. Among longtime Colorado residents its CC. Among the students its CC.

Long term DU and UND should be looking to join the same conference in all sports. That will push UND over the top as most bitter rival IMO.

That's basically the exact same situation for North Dakota between UND-DU and UND-Minnesota.

I'm also looking forward to my first DU-CC game at Magness. I went to one a few years ago down in the Springs, and I was a little surprised at the lack of intensity from the fans.

It's hard to imagine that UND will ever surpass CC in my mind as a rival. Right now, UND represents more of a consistent rivalry for league position, but there are some things that just stay. The Yankees greatest rival will never ever be the Orioles or the Rays under any circumstances. I will never think of UND as a bigger rival than CC. Right now, they are as big in my mind, but that could come and go.

Back in the day, the "rivalry" between DU and CC was hardly worthy of the name. Sort of like Texas and Rice, in name only. One year CC refused to play the Pioneers after a fight in the World Arena, which meant we had no games with the two worst teams in the league, CC and Minnesota. It's UND, baby.

There was the '67 WCHA playoff game (winner advances to the FF) UND leading 4-1 after two. DU scores three in the third and wins it in OT. That's the game that brought Chancellor Chester Alter running out on the ice to embrace Murray in a bear hug. Memorable.

A regular season game at the Arena, tied, very very late. DU scores at 19:59 of the 3rd.

'68 NC game: DU survives a furious first period UND attack and scores four in the 3rd, 4-0 National Title.

Oh yeah, it's UND.

I believe I heard the story about this fight. Wasn't it something like a DU player gave a little 2-handed whack to a CC guy's head and all he-ll broke loose with multiple fights and the CC fans throwing crap at the DU players from the stands and such...and the refs had to remove DU from the ice in order to restore order?

On the topic of old school, playing at CC stuff...My best friend growing up, his dad was a defenseman at DU from '67-71 (Danny Helm, a co-captain his senior year) and one of his favorite stories to tell us as kids was how, as a sophomore, he was suited up as the 6th d-man (Murray basically only rolled his top 4 d-men) and the benches at the old World Arena were kinda short so if there were empty seats behind the bench, Murray would have his last d-man sit in the stands (there was a funky side door to the bench) to free up space, until needed, and that Danny sat there one game eating popcorn with his future wife while in full uniform, watching the game.

It was at the Broadmoor and it was one I missed. But I think your version is probably about right, Jimbo would have all the skinny, of course. IIRC the key player involved for CC was named Palm. And at some point DU players got up into the stands. It was very ugly.But the long and the short of it was DU lost at least six games, maybe 8, with the two bottom dwellers. I think we replaced 'em with the Czech nationals, which didn't help in the standings. Probably cost us a MacNaughton. And the long time "principled" stand of the Gophers hiding from us probably cost more than one MacNaughton.

There were certainly some DU guys who'd happily deliver a "little 2 handed whack."

That's terrific, I met Danny at the old barn one time, he was working as a goal judge.

Bob Peers who lit the match remembers the "incident at the Snoopy Tournament on Lets Go DU


A characteristic that is synonymous with DU hockey is the fierce rivalry with Colorado College. While many fascinating stories have emerged over the years between the two programs, one game that took place at the Broadmoor in February 1966 may go down as perhaps the most symbolic of this long-standing rivalry. And one of the players at the center of it all was Peers.

“Well, it was a black part I guess. “Badger” Bob Johnson was the first or second year coach at Colorado College at the time. This was a league game that took place before the playoffs. At the end of the second period of this game, there was an incident between myself and another (CC) player named Davey Palm. It broiled into one of those brouhahas and the I-did-you-did sort of thing, so I ended up getting a penalty and he didn’t. Really, it’s hard to explain but it makes you more mad because it should’ve been both of us off, but instead one guy gets penalized and the other doesn’t. I felt that he was laughing at me. Of course everything is subjective. So at the end of the period, I skated over and drilled him and he fell to the ice. I pummeled him and everything and then the crowd went crazy. They brought out the fire hoses and pushed people back into their seats, but we finished the game. The interesting thing, and it’s because all of these stories come out, is that we were all talking about it in the dressing room today when Murray always gave this little speech. And I’m a bit of a locker room talker, so somebody asked me “Peers, what was your most memorable thing about Murray?” and I said “well, the first one is he used to say you go out on the ice with a silent resolve, so that you don’t leave your game in the dressing room. You go out with the intent to win and play hard.” But then I said “actually the one game that I remember the most was after that DU-CC game down at the Broadmoor.” This incident happened at the end of the second period, so there was still a period to play. They didn’t know what to do. They finally restored order and Jim Eagle was throwing buckets of water up into the stands. So it was one of those things where it was almost out of control at that time. So I got a game misconduct. At that time, usually when you get one of those, you go to the dressing room, shower and go back out into the stands. So the team was going out to start the third and Murray hung back and he said to me “Bob, you know what? I think it would be best if you just kind of stayed in here for the whole period.” (Laughs) So I said ok.

The incident happened in 65-66 in my senior year, and anybody that I’ve ever talked to about it always says, “Oh, you’re the guy.” Anyway, DU and CC didn’t play against each other the following year. We did play them again in the playoffs and for that game, Davey Palm and myself weren’t allow to play. At the end of the season, they sat down and I think it was CC that wanted to make a statement. They said that because of this incident, they felt that there should have been some type of sanction on Denver. And the sanction was that they refused to play Denver in WCHA play for one season. So that’s kind of the story.”

Firehoses? Throwing buckets of water up into the stands? Am I sorry I missed that one. Only the Jim Carter "gong show" could possibly rank ahead of it. Fire hoses!!!!! Jeebus, you could kill somebody. And Bob Peers certainly was capable of delivering a "little 2 handed whack." :D

Yeah, he goal judged a few seasons in the '80s. He was also a pee wee (or so) level coach at DU and coached both John Grahame and TJ Tanbrum (played at CC). I previously posted about certain friction that was around with alums when Gwoz was initially hired and how a lot of alums' kids did not come to DU, John Grahame is a perfect example...I mean, how does Ron Grahame's son, who is obviously a good goalie on his own, not end up at DU? His freshman year was Gwoz' first year at DU and I heard a walk-on offer, with knowledge of him being third string, was even rebuffed.
