      Re: North Dakota Offseason Thread

      I met Doc Sander last night after the games, what a nice man. He looked great in his green vest and hat with all the pins. There was a picture of him in the Pittsburgh newspaper, but not in the online edition that I could find. Here is the text of the article.

      When Larry Sander went to his first Frozen Four in 1984, he noticed that some fans wore pins commemorating the college hockey championship events they had attended. To be frank, Dr. Sander, a young family physician living in Orrville, Ohio, thought that seemed a pretty stupid thing to do.
      Thursday afternoon, he sat in the lobby of the Cambria Suites, Downtown, his hair now mostly white, and was sporting a bright green vest and a bright green bowler hat adorned by hundreds of pins representing many of the nearly 30 Frozen Fours he has been to since that first one in Lake Placid, N.Y.
      Back then, Dr. Sander's game attire blended in. He was cheering on his alma mater, the University of North Dakota, and so he wore Fighting Sioux gear. Thursday, his garb made sense only if you understood what it means to be a diehard college hockey fan.
      "I should point out that normally he's a quite rational person," said Margaret Sander, his wife.
      "She's suggesting that this is not rational," Dr. Sander deadpanned.
      Larry Sander has also been to a Final Four. He agrees that there is just something different about hockey's version.
      "It's much friendlier," Dr. Sander said. "If you look at all the sweaters that are on, you'll get 25 teams, but only four are here."
      The Sanders met at North Dakota in 1966. They cheered for the hockey team together for many years before deciding to attend the 1984 Frozen Four. Before they knew it, they were hooked.
      "It's kind of like a reunion, in a way," Mrs. Sander said. "A reunion of like minds."
      For all of the Frozen Four faithful, there have been times when their loyalty to the event has been tested. For Dr. Sander, that moment came in 2001.
      They had planned to take their daughter, Melanie, on a Caribbean cruise for her 16th birthday in early April. But when North Dakota made the Frozen Four in Albany, N.Y. -- the same weekend as the cruise -- Dr. Sander became consumed with getting a guarantee that the cruise ship would have the ability to broadcast the games.
      "I got so tired of it," Mrs. Sander said, "so he stayed home from the ship."
      Dr. Sander went with Mrs. Sander's mother, also a North Dakota fan, to the Frozen Four. Mrs. Sander went with their daughter to Aruba and Curacao. After the trip, Mrs. Sander's preference said everything about her family's love affair with college hockey's big event.
      "I'm not a cruise person," Mrs. Sander said. "I kind of wished I was at the Frozen Four."

        Looks like we'll be the only team to have had a lead on Yale this tournament.
        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            Final Through these Doors year end video: http://www.undsports.com/mediaPortal...b_oem_id=13500

            They do such a great job on this production and letting fans see the players up close.

            That last scene as the players leave the outdoor game in Omaha is priceless. As a player, how great would it be to play in front of these fans and see 12,000 in the stands at every home game!

                        Did Yale really have a great season? In all seriousness, they were one CCHA game away from not making the national tournament. You can't say they were 'on a roll' at the end of the year given their ECAC tournament performance. Heck, only one team in the FF actually won their conference tournament; UM-Lowell! Yale had a good season and a phenomenal national tournament. It was refreshing to NOT see BC, Michigan and a few others not make the NT or FF.

                          Nope. Coach Yeo, college coaches don't hold a candle to NHL coaches.
