    I love that Meagher's defense (or defence) was that he was spitting at the Gopher players and not at the trainer.
    World Arena is Colorado Springs. But they still have crappy lighting!

    Anything "Blank" University can be called by "Blank." Interestingly we never cringe when we hear Minnesota, Northeastern, or even Denver. We just happen to call BU by Boston University or, well, BU. However technically "Boston" is correct. Or, the almost just as cringeworthy, Boston U.
    That's to differentiate it from Boston College. There isn't a "Minnesota College" or a "Denver College" or a "Northeastern College," thus, they are referred to by the "first" name only. The University is implied because everyone knows there's no conflicting alternative. But if you just say "Boston," technically you don't know if it's Boston University or Boston Colllege - hence, the "BU" and "BC"

I have no opinion about BC or BU, but if the school doesn't wish to be called "Boston" on air, then they shouldn't be.

    Miami University in Ohio, founded in 1809.

    University of Miami if Florida, founded in 1925.

    I wonder if one institution has a bit of a precedent on the name ...... nah, we all are mentally corrupted by NCAA football, right?
    No more slow starts to the season; we got over that hurdle. Now, Get it on!!! GO UND!!!

    My favorite Terrier-Gopher tilt was the 1994 National Semi-Final at the old St. Paul Civic Center. (Love those glass boards.) BU scored a goal while the capacity crowd was rocking the building with the M-I-N-N-E-S-O-T-A chant. Goosebump city. BU won the game 4-1. (The National Championship game has been erased from my memory.)
    It Happened!!!!

    I wish I was around for the 70-71 title game. Even though BU defeated the Gophers, they couldn't have been too mad about ending the season as a 14-17-2 NCAA runner-up.

    So, I suppose we have to put the old "Maroon'n'Gold Alliance" on hold Saturday afternoon, huh? Hard to have an alliance if the two teams are playing each other.

    So can the UND band lead the Let's-Go-Sioux cheer?

    Also best available tickets are club level now, so a majority of them have been sold since the selection show.

    I would not be surprised if they open up the upper level when it's all said and done.

    Anyone else getting sick and tired of reading the mindless drivel posted by WMU fans in this thread? Their team makes the NCAA tournament for the second time in two years, including coming off a dominating CCHA Playoff performance w/wins over Miami and Michigan, and all their bandwagon fans come on here and post smack talk like they are Minnesota arrogant or something. They really do belong in the NCHC.

    I would be highly surprised and somewhat puzzled of they didn't. That session should hit at least 16,000 fans IMHO.

    Let me be the first to congratulate Western Michigan, future NCHC foe, on making the tournament again. I wouldn't count them out of this regional. They have no pressure, and there's a chance that UND and Minnesota lay an egg looking ahead to a potential rematch. If BU gets by Minnesota, they could suffer a letdown in the next game. Plus, Western Michigan has a good team.

    NCHC 2012 tournament teams: Denver, Miami, Minnesota-Duluth, North Dakota, Western Michigan
    NCHC 2011 tournament teams: Colorado College, Denver, Miami, Minnesota-Duluth, Nebraska-Omaha, North Dakota, Western Michigan

    Looking forward to the start of a rivalry.

    BU and the Gophers match up well and Jack Dupark is an outstanding coach.
