    A young talented team like Wisconsin is hard for UMD to play so early. Granato has had ample time in their off season to study UMD’s play in the playoffs, we have a team very similar to last years whereas Sandelin has had no opportunity to develop a game plan vs Wisconsin.

    I have no doubt Wisconsin will make the tourney after this weekend’s results. They may struggle with inconsistency throughout the season though. And BU had a very talented team that never amounted to much.
    I think I read somewhere that Wisconsin played in some tourney that allowed them to start practicing sooner as well? I might be getting that mixed up.

    No, you're right. They played in Vancouver, Canada for their once every four years international trip.

    Gonna be interested to see how they respond this upcoming weekend against the Gophers. We always get up for this series and have played very well against them in the last 5 years.

    I shouldn't be surprised there are bandwagon fans after going back to back, but I guess I am. Lay off the panic button. The season is young.

    I don't think having expectations and having the team not live up to those expectations makes you a "bandwagon fan". Anybody posting on this forum is probably not a bandwagon fan, I mean there's like 5 of us here and we all seem to care pretty deeply for the Dogs. It's okay to be objective after a disappointing weekend. We expect more because the team has done incredibly well the last few years. I think that expectation is a good thing. This team has earned that expectation.

    Seriously? Lol. I doubt anyone here is a bandwagon fan. My account here is probably almost 20 years old except I changed names at one point which I did when Stauffacher was my favorite dog. There actually used to be a lot more of us here, mostly old timers. Hell, back in the day we used to exchange VHS tapes of games. And that was when we were awful. There wasn’t an option of streaming games back then. If the conditions were right and I sat out in my Camry in an open space I’d be lucky to barely hear games on KDLH (or was it KDAL?) over the static.

    The extra salt is because this was the first time we played Wisconsin in almost 10 years. A decent rivalry. And after the success, getting swept is quite a disappointing re-acquaintance. It’d be different if we got swept to say—WMU or UND or the expected sweep by DU.
    It’s expected we start slow, but if this team can’t get fired up to play old rivals like UW or UMTC how are they going to stay hungry for a threepeat? Teams get complacent all the time. Look at SCSU last two years, or DU in ‘18 (OSU was **** good though, the actual runner up that year in my eyes).

    There’s no such thing as bandwagon fans in this state. You’re either a Bulldog or you’re not. And the in-state rivalries run so deep I’m convinced if SCSU or UMD played Wisconsin in the championship, a lot of “better dead than red” Gopher fans would be cheering for the Badgers. Which is especially impressive given this state’s pride in it’s home grown hockey talent

    The specific comment that rubbed me the wrong way is not wanting to strap on your Bulldog gear. Love your team 365 days a year. Don't be afraid to advertise who you follow 365 days a year. Do you think Packer fans only wear Packer garb on Mondays after the team won on Sunday? Sounds like I put you in the wrong category, but I don't have respect for fans that only support their team when they are winning.

    For anyone that was disappointed with the dogs this weekend, you are in the same boat as Sandy. Watching the interview after Saturday's game, I have never seen him so upset this early in the season.

    One passing thought I had this past weekend is what seems to be a pattern of slow starts. I understand slow starts to a season when you have a lot of new blood, but this team should be in third gear at the start of the season with all the returning players. Sandy is an elite coach in preparing his teams for the playoffs, so I guess that is really what matters.

Their entire first line is 1st round, star talent.

    I'm hoping it will be a wake up call. And I know Sandelin's teams get better as the season goes along. I'm just not as hurt by the results this weekend as some others are. I wasn't shocked by it, knowing what I knew about the incoming class for UW. They were about what I expected them to be. Unfortunately, I expected them to be really good.
    Bucky gets taken behind the woodshed at home to the tune of 4-0 to Clarkson. I fully expect them to rebound tonight. By the way don’t sleep on Denver as far as top end talent goes. They are loaded and right now the best in NCHC

    Woof! I can’t believe we won we got so outplayed most of the third until the last 4 minutes. Testament to our D and Shep, I was so shocked Gophers could just never finish

    I think both teams' talent is equal. What mattered this weekend was the experience on how to use and maximize that talent. And that, that was the difference. tUMD knew how to do that. MN didn't.
    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.

    UMD has had their core around much longer then the Gophers have been. Gophers will look to build on this year for next year.

    Seems to me Wisconsin is much better than Minnesota and a 3-3 start is a bit disappointing but not devastating. I am feeling better after this last weekend but now it's bye week. Rest up and get ready for what could be a preview of the national championship game this year...first of four regular season games against DU.

    Lets just say its been an interesting start to the season for UMD. Perunovich seems to be on the cusp of an outstanding season offensively and the freshmen forwards look really good so far. Time will tell but I believe it could be an outstanding season my friends....

    Really? Is that what you logically think or is this consistent with your negative perspective on the Bulldogs. I'm not a homer or a rose colored glasses guy, but I can't see where all the negatively is coming from. As you previously stated you were a fan through the tough years. I don't know how you survived. You must of had to wear shoes without laces. I guess I'm the odd man out. If this is a gathering for negative Bulldogs fans, I need to go back into USCHO forum dormancy.

    I mean this as nicely as I can, but I think you need to stop being so sensitive. It seems maybe your form of communication hasn't kept up with the times perhaps? The team is 3-3 and hasn't looked great. There was an article from DNT yesterday talking about how the team might have to start skating 5 defensemen every night. This has not started well, and there's nothing wrong with pointing that out. With what we lost (or in this instance, didn't lose) in the offseason and our success the last two years, I think most of us expected to have the record Denver has at this point. It's a let down they've played the way they have to this point. I bet if you asked the players, they'd tell you the same.

    This is how the sports world communicates today. It's up and it's down. When the team loses, the sky is falling. When they win, you're going to the 'ship. I obviously don't want to see anybody go into "dormancy" but if you're going to get upset every time somebody points out this team isn't performing to expectations, this forum is going to cause you a lot of frustration.

    Split I say but I would love to have more than that. UMD always splits with Denver at home.

    Logically—just talking in terms of what odds were given if I was putting money on it I would take the 1pt odds. We’ve been ok at best vs Denver over the years. Our injuries, their start, our record against them over the years... we had to work hard and come from behind for 1 point tonight, so I’m not too far off. Just being real. Splitting to Lowell was expected, swept by Wisconsin was the low point, we’re on track with what’s expected with DU. The sky isn’t falling, but this team isn’t getting an autobid in the pairwise just because they won the last two years. And if we don’t pick it up, we’ll be relying on winning the NCHC

    I'd say they picked it up. UMD played very well the last 4 periods of the weekend. Took them a bit to shake the rust off from the bye. They'll have to earn an NCAA bid and they will earn it. They looked really good this weekend and it was a fun series. I enjoyed watching how much **** talking was going on between players. UMD players chirped the Denver bench multiple times during the games and it was very chippy at times. The series in Denver is gonna be a barn burner. I expect these teams to be going at it for the Penrose come March.

    We're onto Miami which should be a sweep. UMD has played well in Oxford and you gotta clean up against weaker teams. They'll be playing Chris Bergeron who was the coach of BGSU when UMD beat them last year. Based on what we saw against them and their boring defensive game it could be a team that will suck to play against.

    Yep. I got an actual LOL moment at the end when the DU player took a few swings at Jacques and Jacques was just sitting there laughing (taunting?) at him. My disappointment of the two games I attended in Madison aside, the team looks like it could make a shot at league title. Which would be great because they haven't won a league title since 1991? Which I believe was Derek Plante's team. They've put in some good efforts, but fell just close before (nipped by North Dakota during Reichmuth's time).
