UW and MN are fairly competitive. I would say when both are on their game, MN is better. Lots of blame to throw around at GPL, but the Gophers were thoroughly gassed for the second half of Saturday - credit WI for that.

Yes, except in goal.

It's nice to see Wisconsin being competitive again but honestly neither team looks like the days of decades past. Since, the Big Ten started It's painful watching mediocre hockey. Go Wild! I mean go Big Ten.

Not fair - let alone possible - to compare teams of today to those "of decades past". But hockey has improved so much (especially defense and goaltending) that I have no doubt that either team today would have no problem beating the teams of 20 years ago.

I agree the teams of today would beat teams 20 years ago. My point, both schools are not dominate like they were 20 to 30 years ago. Today they are mediocre.

What ranking do you need to have so that you're no longer regarded as "mediocre"? :rolleyes:

Well there's that, but 4four4 did say "today" when he called them "mediocre". ;)
Honestly in Minnesota's case this year I would give them at least a B, and probably a B+ based on their play the past two weekends and their #7 PairWise rank.
And if there is a more improved team in the country than Wisconsin, please submit your nominations! They're now 5-1 since the break, with their only loss coming to the Gophers in O.T.

Got a lot of flack when I put UW as fighting MN for tops in the B1G this year.

I'd put MN at a B so far. All else considered, they are about a home sweep of PSU and UW away from a B+.

Dominant” and “dominate” sound somewhat alike, but they can’t be used interchangeably.

“Dominant” is an adjective, meaning it is used to describe a subject. It is defined as having or exerting authority or influence, or occupying or being in a commanding or elevated position. For example, “Wheat is the dominant crop in many parts of North Dakota.” “Which is the dominant gene?”

“Dominate” is a verb. It means to rule over, have control of, tower over or overshadow. For example: “The instructor dominates the class.” “Successful leaders dominate events rather than react to them.”

There's a chance the Badgers now have the bug that went through most of our team last week and bring it with them this weekend. Isn't it fun to share?

At least you didn't try to gas UW like Lindenwood did to the UW women's team.
