Easily.

Pizza Luce....

Congrats to the Gophs. As a UNH'er, I had tickets to this and wanted to check out mariucci for the first time but had to give them up for the pack-vikes game. Hope the Cats play the U at mariucci soon.

Hopefully you had the chance to see the Gopher women play at UNH in late November. As I recall the scores were something like 10-2 and 4-0. :D

One more thought:

After watching the USA beat Canada in the world junior tournament, I have a much better appreciation of how much Johnny Gaudreau means to the Eagles' team. That kid is everything he's cracked up to be, and maybe then some.

I think it switches to the Minnesota only teams at the "X" next season. But, I'm not sure.

Wait, the MN tourney is the new classic? hmm... didn't know that. If that's the case, you can't call it Mariucci classic anymore if it's played at another arena, can you?

Sure you can: "The John Mariucci Classic"

I think that's a good idea, if we aren't all in the same conference anymore, to play in a tournament every year. But aren't there 5 Minnesota teams? Lets see, UMn, UMD, SCSU, MnSt-Mankato & Bemidji St. So which team gets left out, or will we rotate and each team not play once every 4 years? Or will they come up with some concocted way to include all 5 teams? They could have some sort of play in game on Friday night, then semis on Saturday and the Championship on Sunday. Might be a good way to do it, but would UMn ever have to play in the play in game? Our tournament, we always get the bye?! lol

The Gophers will be in the tournament every year, but the other 4 teams will rotate out. The team that isn't in the tournament will host the Gophers for a series that year.

My understanding is that they're planning to make it a four team tournament and alternate each year. The Gophers would play a series with whichever team is sitting out the tournament for that year. That's the last I heard anyway.

So it's for sure that the Gophers would be playing away from Mariucci for each of those series? I know the purpose of the arrangement is to support the other Minnesota-based teams, so if true this wouldn't be surprising.

That's what I've heard. We could possibly play series against some of these teams every year, but the only games we'll be playing outside Mariucci are the ones at the tourney and a single series at the school not involved that year.

Home ice be ****ed. Keeping the in-state rivalries going is big.
