    Cool Minnesota Golden Gophers 2014-2015: Biggest Underachievement in History?

    Hello Hockey fans!

    This thread is to discuss the then #3 RPI Gopher's phenomenal achievement of losing to then #50 RPI Northeastern Huskies and it's place in the history of our great sport. Now I admit, I'm not quite the statistical fanatic that so many of you are, so I'll just ask-- Has any team ever lost to another team 47 places below it in RPI?

    Personally, I'm not aware of any such instance but if it has happened, let's face it, it probably involved the gofers...


    At any rate, where does this great achievement rank in the long and storied gofer long story? First? Last? Second only to Holy Cross???

    Is that supposed to be a selling point for Minnesota hockey?

    Ahhh yes.

    The idle ramblings of a bitter fan whose team has fallen to a depth that not even the Gophers have - nor ever will - attained.

    And remember, Wisco, envy is a deadly sin.

    Thanks, but while you and I are celebrating the overachieving Badgers, let's remember the great number of gofer fans who will find themselves unable to move beyond the embarrassment of this gigantic failure. What about them? Has Lucia even checked to see if the suicide hot lines are well staffed?

    The suicide hot lines are staffed by former Badger hockey fans that are fleeing Wisconsin hockey.

    They provide the voice of experience that things could be much, much worse.

    Well Badger fans are wonderful people so I'm not surprised they'd want to help, just as I am. Nor am I surprised gofer fans would want to spend so much time talking about Wisconsin Hockey at a time like this. It's completely understandable. But really it's just best to buck up and accept that Eveleth will be calling for the pucks from this game so they can be properly enshrined in the newly planned 'Gopher Implosion Collection' at the Hall.

    Umm, ahh, nobody wants to talk about Badger hockey.

    Not Wisconsins largest newspaper, or television.

    Not the fan base that's fallen farther than the hockey team (who thought that would be possible, huh?)

    Not Barry Alverez

    And given your recent interest (obsession?) with Gopher Hockey, certainly not you.

    It pains me to say this, but Dirty is a way better troll. At least his team is good at hockey.

    This is a funny thread. A good payback for that other Gopher fan that posted UW's "Season Thread"
    tUMD Hockey
