    Re: 2011 Frozen Four Thread - Minnesota Duluth - Notre Dame - North Dakota - Michigan

    This will by my first frozen 4 so I'm hoping for some good games! I would love to see a UMD vs. Sioux championship!

      UMD is a major conference team that both was in the FF and had a Hobey winner in the last ten years. I'm pretty ambivalent, and they are the least unlikeable team to me, so I will probably root for them.
      I don't like thinking about this the same way but I completely agree. The one year I actually score a ticket to the game this happens? I really hate rooting against teams so who can I root for? Duluth I guess... or maybe I could bring myself to root for Notre Dame but I'll have to do a little soul searching before I commit to that.

        Maybe I won't root for tUMD now.

          I wonder if it's ok to root for the roof to collapse during the NoDak Michigan game?

            No, there's a lot of neutral fans there. I'd suggest rooting for the pit of snakes to get the coaches and/or teams, that way you avoid injury to the innocent spectators.

                    What, we're not using the Articles of Confederation anymore?!

                    Best of luck to the four teams. I would not be surprised to see a UMD-UND finale.

                      I'm hoping the refs will let the teams play more then they have at least from our region. And it will be exciting to watch Anders Lee play at the X again I haven't seen him since the state tourney a few years ago.

                        Records against each other so far this year:

                        North Dakota vs University of Minnesota Duluth: In Grand Forks: Won 4-2 Lost 3-2 in OT; In Duluth: Won 5-0. Overall North Dakota leads 2-1
                        North Dakota vs Notre Dame: In Grand Forks: Won 6-3 Tied 2-2 in OT. Overall North Dakota leads 1-0-1
                        North Dakota has not played Michigan.

                        Duluth did not play Michigan or Notre Dame

                        Michigan vs Notre Dame: At Michigan: Lost 3-1 Won 5-3; In the CCHA tourney Won 4-2 Overall Michigan leads 2-1

                        I like that in the semifinals the teams have not played each other so you have no idea what to expect. It should be a lot of fun and
                        I hate waiting almost two weeks until they play again.

                          No, I like the Xcel too much. I'm just going with the Ebola outbreak getting both locker rooms and most of the fans.
