Check out the cheap shot on Bjugs (#27 Rowney) after the empty netter.

    Nice. Typical North Dakota cry baby on that play (hacking bjugs) after the goal, Kristo was also showing his true colors chucking the water bottle and having a hissy fit, then Pattyn starts crying at the end of the game, love it. Even with a name change things stay the same up there in that wasteland called NoDak.

    You Gopher fans are a hoot.

    Hopefully we get a better game on the ice tonight from both sides. Last game in this series, and the fans deserve both teams playing at their best.

(In other words, to exaggerate slightly, it is like saying that while Holy Cross played a good game based on their ability, MN would have won if they just had played a decent game. In this case, there is little credit really given in Holy Cross in the win.)

    I play Old-timers a couple times a week. One night, there are a number of players around my age and the skill range between players is huge, from former D1 to a couple guys who are really not very good. The week before last, a number of the top end players didn't make it and I had time to carry the puck pretty mich anywhere, keep my head up and look for a teammates tape in front of the net and wait until I had a gap to make the pass. I was awesome. On the other night I play, the age is younger and skill level higher. Last time we played, I could have been the dad for all but about three of the guys playing, with a number of them having just played varsity HS in the last few years. The game was very fast. I had very little time to react, didn't carry the puck long, and many of my passes hit legs or missed as I rushed them. Out of three 2 on 1's, only on one was I able to actually hit my partner with a pass he could shoot. In the first example, I had all the time and space I needed half the time I had the puck. In the second example, I rarely had more than a second to react. How a team plays can be partly attributed to if your team shows up, but in the case of a team with equal or better talent that is playing well, a team can look like they aren't playing hard when it is really they are getting outplayed.

    It is interesting that UND, ND and BC have all "not played well" against the Gophers, a team for which you would think each team was fired up to play. Just Gopher luck I guess.

    And to clarify, I don't think that every mis-play by either team was the result of pressure by the opponent. I don't think either team played their best game. But I saw more missed passes under pressure than I saw when players weren't pressured. But, I think if UND played at this level against a team in the lower half of the league, a lot more of the passes are connecting and more battles are won, and UND would win.
    Nailed it.

    I think there were a lot of Whoioux players last night who needed tissues. Seemed like every stoppage some one in green was whining to a ref about something or other.

    If they don't win or tie that's always the case. It's been like that as long as I can remember. Why change now?

    Why can't Gopher fans just accept the fact that North Dakota played really bad tonight, and probably their worst game of the year tonight? I would think they would rejoice. Your team won for crying out loud...enjoy the victory.

    It IS what he does. Again, and again, and again.

    I think this is friggen hilarious. For years on this site if a Gopher fan dared to say after a loss that the Gophers played poorly, the posters on this site would jump all over them for failing to give credit to the opponent. Now Fighting Whioux 23 comes on here and spends post after post after post talking about how badly the Whioux played. Sorry, won't wash. Did the Whioux make some unforced errors? Yeah, probably, that happens when you get nervous because you've realized you are facing a superior opponent.

    You're right about Gleason, he should have taken the shoulder instead of the hip and Condon wouldn't get that shot off.

    And no, I never played Division 1, college hockey. If you did, please enlighten me on how failing to complete a pass in your own zone when the other team is not in the zone shows that the pass failed because of something Minnesota did. Thanks.
    Say in ain't so FS23!?!?

    Like I said, without seeing the numbers, I'm pretty confident the Gophers ratings are higher. They have more games televised and the games have a higher production quality, including HD broadcasts. They are in a much bigger market.

    Regardless, the same argument goes both ways. If UND fans can't provide TV ratings either, I can just as easily say their claim to be "the most followed team in North America" (and they made the claim first) is equally unsupported. Disagree?

    UND gets to claim most followed because their arena seats more people and Wisconsin sucked hard to begin the season.
