I think Omaha is trending down

The Chinese stock market looks at Omaha and is glad its not trending down that much.

I am concerned. We are the suckiest sucks to ever suck. We lost to CC! I mean, I didn't watch the game, but it doesn't matter HOW the game was played, just that we lost.

Holy hell, tArrogance is back with a vengeance.

Oh, that was just a general post/observation. Not directed at any post in particular.

Anyone that thinks SCSU isn't heavy favorite is kidding him or herself.

SCSU is clearly the favorite in this field, but I will give SteveO the fact that this Gopher team is playing much better now than when the two teams met before. This is hockey. One win per day is all a team needs, so the odds the Gophers win it are much better now (based on the amount of improvement in their recent play) than if this tourney were 4-6 weeks ago, so one could argue about your use of the term "heavy" (semantics). Of course because it is single elimination hockey, there is no guarantee it won't be Gophs v SCSU playing at 1 on Sunday either. And I don't feel like (and am too lazy to look back) SteveO said Gophs should be considered the favorite, just his prediction they'd win.

I could just as easily predict that the Gophs will slip in for a quickie early against the beavers. Getting overconfident scoring so easily , the Gophs pull back a little and so when things start to get rough and bloody during the first period, they allow the Beavers to come multiple times down the ice and score a few. Then the Beavers manage to hold on through all the Gopher surges to eke out a win. It could happen. Doesn't mean I am saying the beavs are better than the Gophs.

So predictable, isn't it?

Well, it is game day. DL and myself will be at the Liffy. Yes, Hoven, I will get an Irish Coffee and drink it in your honor. Not because he stated the obvious earlier in this thread, but it is a traditional drink at the Liffy. Then pile on about 3 or 10 Irish Car Bombs.

On a side note: Go Huskies!

Man, I'm tempted to join you, I'm heading to Lino Lakes this afternoon on a growler run at Hammerheart. Call it a game-time decision...yes, I'm serious. Hammerheart opens at 2pm, so the timing would be right on.....[edit] for the MN game

Edit: Sigh. And just figured out that you won't stay for the MN game. No Liffey for me. Church tomorrow, though, if you guys are up for it.

I'd stay if you make your way to St. Paul.

It was more the ridiculous "sample" he was using. Gophers have won five in a row, so I will just include the last five even though their loss the previous night against PSU is just as recent and relevant as their win.

Anyone can win this tournament, there are no terrible teams in it.

Is there a more angry fanbase even when things are going well?

Hope the Gophs take care of business today so we can see how they match up against the #2. Would be fun to see.

From the Gophers perspective...they appear to be very motivated:

Sad part is you think we're angry...we're not.

Yeah, pretty much nailed it there.:D I'm not sure I've seen a more jr. high like fan base.

Apparently I touched a nerve. It's not supposed to be valid "sample size". Just highlighting a current trend and comparing teams. You're free to post your own "sample size" as well. Not a problem.
