Anchorman Escalation gif here...
Part of that was in response to Woog's never winning a title, and Minnesotans feeling a few non-Minnesotans would be ok. Another part was that the work of making THE State of Hockey, into what it is, and the hard work of guys like John and Cliff paying off, was for the most part, DONE. UMn's women's program was up and going and doing very well, because of women in THE State of Hockey also being awesome. Former Gophers had led the Gophers to multiple Titles, and Wisconsin to multiple Titles and UND to multiple Titles in men's hockey and had even led a team to a Stanley Cup Title. The NHL was now a believer in collegian hockey players being ready for the NHL, and UMD, SCSU, Mankato St and even little Bemidji St were all now Div 1 programs, and were all in the Mighty old WCHA, so what else was needed to be done for college hockey in the US, or for US Olympic hockey???
So the fact that you are bringing this us as if it's significant, is kind of funny.
But UMn got the split, and so is 3-3-0 vs teams ranked #1 right now in the PWR(SCSU), KRACH(Notre Dame) & Massey Ratings(Clarkson).
BOTH the KRACH and the Massey Ratings have SCSU ranked #4.
SCSU fans act like the PWR rankings are the end all and be all and that its ranking is the Gospel truth, but all the PWR does is determine who gets in and what seeds they get.
The PWR, does NOT determine who wins the games!!!
So consulting other ranking/rating systems is more than legitimate, it should be assumed to be a required thing to do.
What does it say that SINCE I CALLED SCSU's resume into question last week, the KRACH and Massey Ratings BOTH dropped SCSU from #2 and #3, to #4 in both.
Not even Top 3 in either???

You people poke fun of me when I bring up that the Gophers have played the toughest SOS in the nation?
UMn has played SIX games vs teams ranked #1 in the nation by at least one of the 3 main ranking/rating services, and have won 3 of those 6 games.
PWR has SCSU ranked #1, UMn won the home game, lost the road game.
KRACH has N Dm ranked #1, UMn lost both ROAD games.
Massey's Rating has Clarkson ranked #1, UMn won both HOME games.
All 3 teams are ranked Top 4 in all 3 rankings/ratings. So call that a very authoritative 3-3 record vs Top 4 teams.
UMn split with UND on the ROAD.
Any other team in the nation with double digit games vs Top Ten competition, including SEVEN ROAD GAMES??????????
We won ALL THREE HOME games, and one of the 7 road games!!!
4-6 vs Top Ten teams.
SCSU is only 3-3-1 vs Top Ten teams, with 3 home games, and ONLY FOUR road games. SCSU with only 2 home wins, and just like the Gophers, only 1 road win vs a Top Ten team.
UMn with 4 wins over Top Ten teams, SCSU with only 3.
4 > 3
