    So, in keeping with the title of the thread: Terry Pegula = Homewrecker, Barry Alvarez= Unfaithful jerk. Do I have that right?

    UAA finishes last. Though that's not really a prediction given it's guaranteed to occur.

    Unless the Gophers get all of their wins vacated.

    Minnie is the daughter of a prominent but not old money family whose beauty is fading and whose hunger for prominence and status burns more urgently as a result. She does everything she can to move "up" in her social circle, all while maintaining the necessary appearance of propriety.

    North Dakota and Denver just like to party, howl at the moon, (with Bucky on occasion, though they know he is not one of them but knows how to party and is good in a fight), and throw beer bottles on Minnie's lawn.

    You're trying too hard, but I understand that 2000 seems like an awful long time ago.

    God, I hope you're wrong, but sadly, you're probably right. If this team can get back to a physical brand of hockey, then this team could surprised and finish in the 9-11 range. Unlikely, but possible.

    Out of curiosity, why do you two have sconnie so high? It's just a question. I plead ignorance because I haven't followed much WCHA news in the offseason.

    USCHO gives me another reason to not do work while I am at work.

    Just a gut feeling that they're going to have a rebound season. They were pretty young last year (at least I think I remember that), and I think they'll show that they've developed quite a bit, and they definitely have talent.
