    I'm not going to play ***-for-tat, Josh. You obviously know. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones big man.

    I don't doubt you Andy. I was more or less giving you a shot back for continuing to bring up the past. I've apologized and moved on. As for UW, no doubt they aren't seven goals worse than BC. York even said that post game. Even great teams have off nights. UW is and will be fine. My guess is they bounce back strong tomorrow.

At least 7 of the 9 goals came on shots where the BC player had zero Wisconsin players between the goal and himself. CLEARLY BC had a lot to do with creating those breaks, it doesn't take an analyst to point that out. Anyone who has watched Wisconsin play more than once also should be able to realize how uncharacteristic this was of their team.

    It's exactly what UMass-Lowell did in the NCAA tournament last season to the Badgers. There's no question in my mind opposition speed/transition is a serious issue right now. How will Eaves and the coaching staff react? I guess we'll see. If they can't stop speed, Wisconsin is absolutely f'ed. I'd love to just say this is a one time thing, but after watching UMass-Lowell last year take UW to the woodshed, I'm convinced this is something UW doesn't have an answer for.

    No doubt that probably was a big factor, but IMO both teams full strength UMN had the better team last year. This year, who knows, but this BC team is looking pretty darn good. Even in the loss to Michigan you could see that. I'm both excited and fearful of next weekend.

    Look forward to the Gophers playing both this season.

    I see where he's coming from. "We played poorly" can come off as simply an excuse when the nature of sports is you win or you lose, and the better team that night is the winner. Not trying to troll. I just hate losing and would rather be ****ed when it happens than have to think about it on a deeper level (which you have to do when you have to write about it).

    Don't you have some 15 year old recruits to suck up to or hassle when they don't pick the Gophers?
    Just appreciating your back-handed compliments.

    Chuck, no need to defend yourself. As a BC fan, I thought Wisconsin put forth one of the worst performances I've ever seen.

    Wasn't your statement. Sorry to poke holes in the statement that was made.

    But I agree. York has generally had his way with the what was WCHA elite in recent history. No denying that.

    LOL, it's not an easy task.
