I feel slighted. He gave me posrep for this:
This discussion has completely changed my thinking. I'm repainting my blue and white M in maroon and gold. Minnesota is the new team of my dreams and will be forevermore held in reverence in my heart. Their accomplishments, philosophies, achievements, joie-de-vivre, and outlook of doing what is best for the greater good as they put their own goals to the side are so superior to the rest of college hockey - and not only all hockey, but the whole of the sports world - that I now declare myself a Gopher fan!! Glory to Mariucci! And curses on Glienke, as a home-grown finalist for Mr. Hockey in the Center of the Hockey Universe for committing to Maine, the second finalist in two years. May his shorts be infested by the offspring of a thousand mosquitos.
About time you came around & embraced the truth, the Gopher Way!!!I didn't trust it, not being sure if he understood the sarcasm without the :rolleyes:, the ;), and the :D.

:eek:

UncleRay -- As one deploying sarcasm, I would have thought that you would have recognized the sarcasm in how I responded. lol

College hockey might not even be around anymore if it wasn't for what Minnesota and other schools like BC/BU & Michigan did for the sport. ... and then 1980 Miracle on Ice may not have happened, and who knows what would have become of college hockey? Well done. 69 posts in and you're in the running for one of the dumbest things ever posted on the board. There are plenty of Canadians (et al) who play hockey to have filled every single roster spot on every NCAA team ever. And those schools would have gone on to win one NCAA title per year, and each conference would have still awarded one conference title per year - exactly the same success rate that teams have had WITH Americans on board. With the same rate of success, why would they have dropped hockey? Colleges were playing hockey for 60+ years before Minnesota dreamed up its in-state policy - or does UMinn somehow get retroactive credit for that, too? If 1980 hadn't happened, the other 40+ schools playing college hockey would have merrily continued on recruiting players from all over, and college hockey would have been just fine.

Exactly.

(Psst - Oso, we're on your side for once. Don't mess it up!)

The imperial "we," or do you speak for the whole motley crew? I don't appreciate being patronized by an upstart college hockey fan. I knew Roger Eastman.

And while perusing the thread I decided to try out this rep thing that I really didn't understand, apparently? My first rep was positive and when I tried repping the same person later, was told I couldn't until I spread more rep or something like that, and I remembered reading some poster post something about needing to spread more rep, so it just seemed like it wasn't a big deal. But apparently it was. For anyone I neg repped, I'm sorry. Didn't know it was against the unwritten rules to neg rep someone, or that it was such a big deal. Apparently it is, and I'll be much more careful in the future.

So question? I don't want to derail this topic again, so where can I go to find out more about this rep thing, the rules, and all of that?

Neg repping is fine for most people, because they get balanced out by positive reputation.

It is very helpful in the instances someone like you comes to the board, we have a way of identifying morons, trolls and people that are full of it.

If it weren't for Minnesota hockey, we might all be speaking Russian now. Or worse - Québecois French.

That reminds me of an argument that goes on in our house. We have an ancestor from Quebec, so my son wants to say that he's part French Canadian.

There's no French Canadian or even Canadian when it comes to race or nationality. If you're French Canadian, you're French.

I'm not German - American. I'm an American with German ancestry.


Thoughts?


I will concede though that there is a subset race of Americans called Minnesotan-Americans.

If Waldo were a meritorious thought, Dubber's stuff on this page alone would keep us all searching at least until UND takes home the big one in April.

WOW?! Really. Well, thankfully the HOCKEY Hall of Fame, and the US Hockey Hall of Fame, and the Olympic Hall of Fame and the NHL all disagree with you.

Minnesota has MORE HOCKEY Hall of Famers than any other college, more US Hockey Hall of Famers than any other college, more Olympic Hall of Famers than any other college, and last I checked, has sent MORE players to the NHL than any other college.


And what you called this "dreamed up in-state policy", first of all wasn't invented by Doug Woog, its been the "general" school policy from the beginning of its existence and only reinforced by John Mariucci who predates Woog by decades, so yes, it can absolutely can be retroactively accredited to the University of Minnesota, because UMn is whats called a PUBLIC University. STATE TAX DOLLARS are used to support it and its mission. It has branch offices all over the state. UMn-Mpls is the Main school, but is part of a larger system, including UM-Duluth, UM-Crookston, etc.. All of these schools see as part of their mission, to give opportunities to MINNESOTA RESIDENTS to get a higher education.

UMn sees it as part of its role in society, to contribute to the economy of the state of Minnesota, to the improvement of living conditions and life in general of Minnesota residents. Minnesota residents get something called INSTATE tuition rates that are much more affordable than those from other states.


What school is it btw, that you support?! How is it that you don't understand this concept of what a PUBLIC University's mission is???


So from the FOUNDING of the Univ of Minnesota, back in 18xx whatever, its "general" policy has ALWAYS BEEN to provide opportunities for Minnesota residents first and foremost, but never exclusively. Doug Woog tried that, but only because the growth of high school hockey in Minnesota was so widespread that he thought he could pull it off. No harm, no foul in trying.

To help put things in perspective, there are more hockey players from Canada named "Moose" in the NHL Hall of Fame than there are college graduates from Minnesota in the NHL Hall of Fame.

Hell, there are more left-handed lawnmower throwers in the NHL Hall of Fame than there are college graduates from Minnesota in the NHL Hall of Fame.

Thanks to a certain program. :)

There's no such thing as the "NHL Hall of Fame."
