Curious to hear if it's decision time in Madison:

Which goalie does 'Sconnie go with on Friday?

After a highly emotional sweep of UND, I hope there's no letdown against another hated rival.

I hear ya. While WI hasn't exactly been good this year, they are another thorn in MN's side where you probably can toss out the records.

And I'm glad the thread title got under one person's skin already. ;)

Gotta put this out there.. Kudo's to Butters and the Badgers for leaning more on local talent vs the CJ's!! AWESOME! Great stuff Badgers!

Gonna be a fun series!

This rivalry will eventually become the biggest in hockey.. And with WI using alot more local talent will only make it better!!

gophers are coming off of 2 tough series (sweeping at alaska and the sioux at home). they have been outplaying teams and wearing teams down going into the 3rd (including the sioux friday night).. last night was one of the first games they showed signs of wearing THEMSELVES down. but they pulled it off. hopefully they can rest up enough to be ready for another big series in madison. the concern in MN will be something along the lines of a let-down after 2 emotional wins this weekend. on a side note- i think the gophs will be ranked #1 this week but who knows with those yahoos. sioux were still ranked 15th last week somehow.

to the badger fans- i saw two games earlier this year.. you guys looked young and quite sloppy in the first game (that was EARLY october). the second game i saw you guys looked much better. what can MN expect from you guys offensively/defensively? how about goaltending?

It didn't get under my skin. I actually agree. This "rivalry" has been a snoozer since 05-06 and it's clear that UND is your biggest rival at the moment. I can respect that.

Still want to beat you, although no more than I want every Wisconsin based team in every sport to beat a Minnesota team. It's hardly exclusive to hockey.

I can see where you folks might want to stick to just hockey though...

Also - I was getting VERY used to you guys being mediocre. Not sure I like the new turn of events.

You're not a Packer fan tho right? Or did I misunderstand you last week?

How it is for most Gopher fans is the UND Ricalry is huge and our all time #1 rivalry to date, and we just dont get up for any other series the same way.. Been that way since I was a kid.. But I think the Badger Rivalry will be just as big after some time in the Big 10.

Customary is to split on the road. I'm hoping the Gophers win Friday so they're the only team with a shot at the sweep.

I don't know where this secondary crap came from, I recall UW vs. Nodak always being huge (we just hated Geno and the crew) but the MN rodents was always #1 from my perspective and apparently many others in the season ticket fanbase. through the late 80's and especially in the early 90's w/Jim Carey, Andrew "point to the scoreboard" Schier, Zent, Plante, Hill et al

there's always a bigger buzz amongst the fans prior to these games.

and having said that here's my brief pointed preview

if the rodents play as well as they have to-date, this *may* be an easy sweep for them (and I effing hate to say that believe me).

UW is making so many mistakes with the young crew and lack of SR leadership available...

defensively Schultz, Schultz, Schultz (on the PP, on the PK, and obviously leading the rush). Also please keep Ramage away from the UW goal at all costs. McCabe is out so beyond Schultz Simonelli is playing well, Faust is playing well.

Goalies - Rumpel is 3-1-1, Peterson 1-4. I think that should rest the case at this point, Rumpel should be the man but I don't know if the coaching staff feels that way yet

Offense - everyone chipping in. Zengerle and Barnes are stepping up, Paape is stepping up as a frosh as is LaBate. Derek Lee is out

WI is a "secondary" rival to many MN fans. UND has one thing: hockey. For me, I want to crush their only dream. I hate them 10x as much as WI. We don't care who your #1 rival is. ;)

Hence, the title.

That would be the opinion of many fanbases, but not the Gophs nor the Sioux. (no offense to the Badgers, it is what it is).

The Goph/Sioux rivalry is on a whole different level. My family has had season tix before I came into this world, i'm 42 and I cant name a single Goph fan that thinks otherwise. But I do think the Badger/Goph rivalry will grow into that during the Big 10 era.

There are probably some pretty smart people among your two clans. Is it theoretically possible that you both get swept? I mean, using some kind of time/light relativity mumbo jumbo that an ignorant Sioux fan can cling to?
