Yep. :) It seems odd that they picked up. Maybe they thought it was North Carolina.

FWIW, MASN picked up some games last year and perhaps even the year before. Maybe they have a college hockey fan in high places? :p:D:D

Too bad the Pep Band couldn't incorporate The Ride of the Valkyries into their repertoire in time for Saturday's game.

We have Ride of the Valkyries as a cheer... Does NoDak have a pep band?

Yes. I don't know if they will be at the games this weekend though. It seems like they will go to either the Regionals or the Frozen Four, but not both. My guess is that they won't be there this weekend, hoping that they make the Frozen Four.

EDIT: If you would like to listen to them...

The Alma Mater is probably from a concert, not a hockey game.

Thanks for posting the words that I am familiar with, as opposed to the current PC version which doesn't talk about "man" and "sons". :D

I am really tired of this PC junk. It all started in 1985 when they claimed Servinis was a step off side.;)

I know what you mean. They switched "Stand up and Cheer" (North Dakota's Fight Song) from...

Stand up and cheer; stand up and cheer for North Dakota!
Pledge your loyalty for she's your Alma Mater true!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Our boys are fighting, and we are here to see them through!
We've got the team. Rah! Rah!
We've got the steam. Uffda!
So North Dakota here's to you!

To:

Stand up and cheer; stand up and cheer for North Dakota!
Pledge your loyalty for she's your Alma Mater true!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Our teams are fighting, and we are here to see them through!
We've got the team. Rah! Rah!
We've got the steam. Rah! Rah!
So North Dakota here's to you!

I still sing it the proper way. :p:D:D

At about 8 minutes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9Y_oM2gjQE. (The whole game is out there in 10-minute segments. Sadly not the UMD game.)

If it wasn't for Yale's win last year, I'd be tempted to take RPI. I like them for many of the same reasons I liked Yale last year - including the layoff - but I think UND definitely got blindsided by the Bulldogs last year and with the talent this year's team has (including, notably, the presence of Chay Genoway), I don't think they're going to go with anything but full acceleration. That might hurt them down the road but I think it'll probably be enough to at least get them past the Engineers. My biggest fear as an RPI backer is that this game is going to get away from them (that is, it won't be close) but they have the ability to hang around and that can make them dangerous as the game wears on. I do expect RPI to get their first goal since their NC-clinching goal from George Servinis in 1985 but if I have to go with one or the other on a purely professional basis I have to take the Sioux. Though I do hope I'm wrong. :)

If UND loses to RPI, which they certainly could, it won't be because they looked past the Engineers to DU, WMU or the Frozen Four. It will more likely be because the UND players are too focused, or want it too much, get frustrated at missed opportunities, try to do too much individually and let the game get away from them. Early outstanding goaltending by RPI, and capitalizing on a scoring opportunity or two, and I could easily see an upset occur.

ssh.... that's supposed to be our secret weapon!

people probably thought I was being facetious when I said that RPI's plan was to let opponents exhaust themselves with a lot of shots that don't go in and then score on the counter-attack, but that has been their pattern all year (generally they seem to be outshot by a non-trivial margin in most games, at least ones that I paid attention to....if I weren't so lazy I suppose I could actually look up statistics to see if my impression is accurate).

There is more than one kind of shot on goal; it appears that RPI may have a deliberate strategy of funneling teams into taking certain kinds of shots by preventing only a limited range of shots rather than trying to prevent all shots. Coach Appert in a revealing interview seemed to allude to such a strategy, though he was obfuscating the details as any good coach would.

A good example of frustrating a team as you describe occured in the BU game in which they took several game misconducts in the last minute. It was a total melt-down by them.

More incentive for the Sioux win Saturday.:cool:

If UND wins on Saturday, Ralph Engelstad Arena will hold a free viewing party for Sunday's game that starts at 4:30 p.m.

Parking and admission to the arena would be free. The doors would open at 4 p.m., UND merchandise would be 15 percent off at the arena's Sioux Shop from 4-7 p.m. and draft beer and hot dogs would also be on sale for $3 each. :)

Team is not looking past RPI right! Hope they have enough beer and hotdogs for a hungry crowd. :D

If you have DirecTV, the WMU-DU game is being televised on Altitude 2 - channel 682 (comcast channel 105 as well).

I really hope you're right, but this is still not showing up on my DirecTV guide. Where are you seeing the listing? I do now find the ND/RPI game on 640, which is great.

I didn't see the game on 640. DirecTV, right?
