    As for the discrepancy in the records that each school claims in the series, the difference is that Minnesota counts games against our coach-less club team that occurred prior to North Dakota having an actual hockey team (pre-'46). I don't understand why Minnesota counts those games, but perhaps it makes them feel better about themselves. North Dakota does not count anything prior to its actual team being formed (and that includes victories by their club team) in 1946.
    Who cares in three years the rivalry will be a distant memory. We all move on.

    I was going to disagree but then I checked and you're right, the CFB on Genoway was in November.

    Let's face it, given their relationship with NBC and their national profile, Notre Dame is driving this bus, and whichever conference they choose will get plenty of air time.

    Wrong

    Friday, December 2nd
    MACCG
    PAC XII CG
    Saturday December 3rd
    SECCG
    ACCCG
    BIGCG
    CUSA CG
    About 20 other televised games
    December 10th is Army/Navy and the Heisman presentation
    Saturday December 17th kicks off bowl season.

    So, you get December 9th, 10th, and 16th where it's just DII and FCS.

    ESPN/ABC covers a large number of them though. And there aren't many games from the 1st weekend to the 3rd weekend of the month other than a handful of conference championships and Army/Navy usually.

    Friday nights during college football season would be open as well, but I agree with you that they would be focusing primarily after Jan. 1st.

    As long as UMD pulls in Canadians and the Gophers don't, there is always a chance the tide can turn. Especially in a sport like college hockey where one or two good players can have a huge impact.

    And don't underestimate the bump UMD will get from the new arena, the NC banner and new league.
    The Big Ten has something every other school wishes they had in college hockey and that is the Big Ten brand probably the best conference in the country. Oh almost forgot, they will have a North American BTN cable contract that every school not playing in the Big Ten dreams about.

    Uhhhh....

    Will they get a bump for the new arena? Hell yeah. Of course its not like the Mooch is a dump; its good from every aspect except fan atmosphere (though I'm sure you'd call it rowdy ). The NC Banner, yes, but I still think a 17 year old right now thinks he has a better chance of winning one joining the Gophs than the Bulldogs. But the new conference is not going to be something tUMD can hold over the Gophers head, 'cause the Gophers will just mention that shiny new toy they get to play with...

    Im sure at some point they will reemerge as the premiere program they were but right now they are headed in the wrong direction and it doesn't appear to be getting better yet. Lucia has not been able to adapt to all the turnover like some of the other coaches have.
