    Ditto.

    And the Whioux are still a thing. They have to be, to keep the TM.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Re: U MN vs. UND: The Rumble in the Desert

    GAMEDAY! Schlossman reports that UND fans and alumni from 131 cities across America are coming to Vegas for this game tonight (and for whatever else one does in Vegas). Gopher fans, not so much. On paper it's neutral ice, but in terms of drunkin' fan support and a raucous atmosphere...advantage UND.

    This is a good litmus test for the Gophers to show some mental toughness amidst a hostile crowd and play their game. Gophers have some players that can fly and play a fast game on skates. But they'll need to play a fast game with the puck as well and put more pucks on net. Although they've only played two D1 games, Corsi indicates they are way down in shot differential at #54th, whereas UND with a slow start in their first 4 games is ranked 6th.

    Physicality factor from a young Gopher D corp will play a huge role, as well as blocking shots against a Whioux team that fires a lot of pucks on net. The Gophers carry the advantage in net with Mat Robson (SV% .936) vs the FR Scheel for UND (SV% .878).

    No doubt both teams will come out of the gate locked and loaded. I'm pumped for an intense 60 min of old-time college hockey rivalry with a lot of end-to-end action. Go Gophers!

    Re: U MN vs. UND: The Rumble in the Desert

    Saturday night of Halloween. Decision time: do I...

    Get one-day NCHC.TV, know that I'll catch the game...but trash one of the best Saturday nights of the year as the game starts at 9cst?

    Or get a one-month NCHC.TV, keep my Saturday night...but risking the game if I can't get access to NCHC.TV video on demand library with a one-month pass?

    Customer support said I "should" get access to the library with a one-month pass. They just didn't respond when I asked them to clarify.
    Go Gophers!

    Englestad must still have a party room out there somewhere. I wonder what he would think about hockey growing in LV.

    The room is long gone but that hasn't stopped the Whioux cheerleaders from donning throwback b-day attire

    I thought you might appreciate that. I hear Menards in GF is running a 24-hour sale on rope that will start after the 1st period tonight.

    It must suck they have to drive all the way to Bismarck to get to the one tree. I assume self driving cars are GOING TO WORK OUT REAL GOOD UP THERE.

    Re: U MN vs. UND: The Rumble in the Desert

    I am worried about the culture shock that UND fans are suffering. I mean, not only are there multiple 3 story buildings, but there are more than 30 people walking around at any given time. And those neon lights, Jesus. Gonna have a few seizures seeing those. I bet the highlight of the weekend is seeing the magic indoor toilet; when you push the lever, it flushes!
