I would suspect most SCSU fans primarily want to beat the Gophers because of their long standing rivalry with the UMN and secondly position in the standings. It makes them feel like they finally have a meaningful existence.:D For Gopher fans, SCSU is not much of a rivalry. They're more like a nuisance.:p


Do not presume to tell me how I should or should not feel!


Nice job on the usage of primarily. Maybe you can teach that to Frank and the Wooger.

I've felt like I had a meaningful existence ever since I became a dad, but beating the Gophers always reinforces my self worth I guess.

Holy decipering the PWR. If I am correct, which is not often, it's not unrealistic to think that the Huskies could get the #1 seed in the Gophers own home town region...particularly with their schedule the rest of the way. Wouldn't it be totally wild to have tBSU and tJBSU battling for that position instead of the royal tUMD? man, the gut laugh hurts!

I was really impressed with the gophers, the speed, the puck movement, the shooting, the goal tending. If they play like they did last night, they'll be mediocre in no time. Good luck on your rise to mediocrity, you slimy rodents.

...Good thing for the Huskies the Gophers suck and they squeak out a ugly win. Lee will be in net tomorrow night so hopefully he plays better than Dunn. If that happens the Huskies should sweep....

Gophers will take it tonight at Marriuci or they know they're out of it for the year. Home Ice, crowd will be into it like last Saturday, get ahead early and don't let up. There's a lot of pride in playing at home, especially this year.

Yet the Gophers are .500 overall and below .500 in the conference at home.

Nope, just thought it was funny a Gophers fan was stating how most Huskies fans feel. It's actually a quote from Titanic said by the very hot Kate Winslet. Plus I slept on a fold out chair at the hospital last night so there was only one way to get out.

First off, you guys need to get a crowd that will get off sitting on their hands. Secondly, other than last year, SCSU's had decent success at Mariucci... much better than say the DECC or Kohl Center as of late.

Did... did you just admit to quoting Titanic?!? :confused: As much as I wanna hate that... I have to admit that's pretty **** funny. You may have singlehandidly taken this thread from sucking to salvagable.

Whoa, whoa, whoa... let's slow down there a second. First, let's qualify for the **** tournament. Second, we're gonna need to play pretty lights out to get a 1 seed. While getting to play CC and UW again which is nice for our SOS, that'll balance out with MSU-M and UAA, and UND may not help there as much as they usually do. Not to mention, doesn't matter how tough our schedule is unless we put up a good record down the stretch, including playoffs, and I'd say to get a 1 seed we'd need to get into the last 4 of the Final 5.

Then, we'd not only need to get a one, but be ahead of DU, CC, UW, BSU and tUMD if they were also a 1, because they'd all be closest to St. Paul as well, and we'd need to either jump Miami or hope they get their first slot in the Midwest Regional instead of somebody like Michigan or Ferris State making a huge run and stealing the Indy region.

I like the optimism, but man, getting a 1 seed and getting placed in St. Paul is... well I won't go as far to say longshot but WAY down the road, especially with how much things can change due to games you wouldn't even consider to involve us. Let's just try to get a sweep tonight and go from there.

I figure we can get a #1 seed if we win the Final 5. ;)

I think you're giving the tournament committee a little too much credit for factoring in geography. Their #1 priority is maintaining the "integrity" of the bracket as dictated by the pairwise rankings.

Because then you can be the highest ranked tourney team to never with an F4 tournament game?

Speaking of seedings, Pwr, sos, and other assorted details. Did anyone notice that if the first round of the WCHA playoffs were to begin tonight, the rodents would be in our house. Somehow I can see that happening:D

I think you're giving the tournament committee a little too much credit for factoring in geography. Their #1 priority is maintaining the "integrity" of the bracket as dictated by the pairwise rankings.

The top 4 seeds are determined as follows:

If any 1 seeds are hosting, they're put in their region.

If not, the top overall seed goes in the closest regional to them.
Second overall seed gets the closest of the 3 remaining.
Third overall seed gest the closest of the 2 remaining.
Fourth overall gets the last chair when the music stops.

The integrity is kept up later, but the overall number one earns the right to play close to home, as do the 2 and 3 to a lesser extent.



Don't ever give up Euro, don't ever give up. :o

I'm not, I'm just saying there's a helluva lotta games and time between now and then, and its not too likely we end up in the 1 seed and are awarded the X for our efforts.

Yeah, but due to unbalanced schedules. We're a point behind CC in 3rd, but we've got two games in hand. If you go by winning %, we'd get an opponent who's never won a game at the NHC in Anchorage.

As much as seeing that happening, I don't want that to happen. That game was scary last night even with the 3-0 lead.

Just saying based on the points to date, nothing else. Most likely that senario would not work out but you never know........
