    Sioux and Gophers fans trapped in X for 7 hours?

    Just got word that the Xcel Energy Center is not allowing re-entry between Semi-final games. If your a Gopher fan and want to watch both games be prepared for eight hours of $9 beers and $6 dogs.

    If North Dakota wins the first game its going to sound like a home game for BU. Jack Parker might want to crank up the speakers at practice so the boyz are ready for the deafening roar of the Sioux fans.

    I'm more worried about how many fights/assaults/murders will take place.

    The Xcel will be as safe as Michigan State in recent weeks...

    The journalism student's passing marks the third death on MSU's campus in recent weeks. Student Carly Glenn, 19, died of meningococcal disease on Feb. 10, and residence hall director Corey Malloch, 34, was discovered dead on March 3 , though the cause of his death has not yet been determined, WWJ reports.

    I don't believe any alcohol can be sold at official NCAA events like regionals and F4. Keep your shirts on this weekend Sioux fans haha!

    I also believe this is true. Get your fill at the local establishments or tailgate before entering the arena. Going to have to start kinda early in the morning though with a 12:30 game.

    That's nothing to Sioux fans. They are used to being trapped in the state of North Dakota 24 hours a day on most days.

    Crank up the speakers so theyre ready for fans to support them? eh, this team has already played multiple games this season, and every season, in full NHL-sized buildings, including MSG at capacity with 75% Cornell fans, so I doubt lots of fans rooting them on would be much of a factor. As for 7 hours with no re-entry, welcome to the Beanpot. And they removed the water fountains from the Garden a couple of years ago, so you have to buy water.
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    We are smart enough to have alcohol stocked for such occasions.

    Any chance that the same general contractor built the X as that I-35 bridge?

    Fingers crossed...

    I figured BU fans took after their nickname and just drank out of the toilet so it wouldn't be a problem for them.

    Like Gopher fans would show up for a game that doesn't involve their team.

    Wishing the X would collapse while UND/UM and all their fans are in the arena? Mmmmmm, something I am very fond of doing every time sconnie travels to the puke and every time sue travels to the Kohl Center.
