Rest assured I shall be writing a letter to the warden post-haste on behalf of your friends!

      True, there's never enough, but regardless this kind of treatment must be stopped. It's INHUMANE.

        This thread could just morph into the "Minnesota vs Bucky 11/29 & 11/30" thread.

            Such a terrible idea to play Notre Dame:

            Minnesota-Notre Dame last Friday drew 182,000 viewers on NBCSN, drawing more viewers than two of NBCSN's three NHL broadcasts last week.

              Good to hear. Anyone know what numbers BC at MN drew that Friday night? Pretty sure that drew pretty well too.

                I see they're back on NBCSN this evening, vs. Merrimack.

                  We'll see how well that draws as a comparison. Pretty sure I heard the MN vs BC Friday night game had pretty big numbers too. Certainly agree with Slap Shot's point though, that there certainly was interest in the games last weekend. Numbers don't lie.

                        Why would that make me any more excited about seeing MN play ND?

                        I don't think there were many people saying it was a bad idea, just that it wasn't a team they'd prefer to see on the schedule as often as they are in this 4 year stretch. The number of people who watched the game doesn't make me feel any different.

                          How you feel about it doesn't matter to the only point I rebutted, which in fact was that it was a bad idea. I've never said I don't want to see other teams on the schedule.

                            To be fair, nobody said it would be a bad idea. A few people just said they'd prefer not to play Notre Dame.

                            I'll be honest, I have no need for us to play Notre Dame. Jackson has touted a big strategy to focus on Minnesota. But overall the school has made its decision to look east...I see no need to give them a great relationship with our state as well. And in a rare side note, we won't even have our Saturday game televised because of the series.
                            Don't think 5M said it was a bad idea, he just said he'd prefer not to put them on the schedule. Nothing incorrect about his post. They did snub the Big Ten in other sports and Jackson had targeted Minnesota heavy for recruiting. It's his opinion that Notre Dame shouldn't be on the schedule so much because of it.

                              Every part of his comments you paraphrased is him saying its a bad idea, and he wasn't the only one to suggest it including yourself. No big deal, it is what is and it's ok to let it go.

                                On the contrary, I explicitly said I don't have any problem with them playing Notre dame. Just shows how poorly you read the discussion

                                As for whether or not we should have scheduled so many games against Notre Dame in such a small span of time (consider we hadn’t played at Notre Dame in 30 years before this past weekend), I don’t see too many issues with it. Notre Dame has become a good program under Jeff Jackson, and playing strong teams in the regular season can help prepare your team for the post-season. Coach Lucia is an alum of Notre Dame, and his son plays for the team.

                                I don’t see any problem with coach Lucia getting them on the schedule. It was neat seeing the Gophers play at Notre Dame, the bad television coverage aside, and I hope to see the Gophers play in other rinks I haven’t seen them play in before in the near future.

                                And I disagree, it's his opinion (hence prefixing his post with "I have no need") that he prefer we not play them. Never did he say it was a bad idea. You inferred that from his comments. You posted a tweet about the ratings for the game as if people were debating whether or not the matchup would draw interest. That wasn't even being disputed. By ANYONE. Read his follow up remarks, take the time to understand his opinion, and don't be so quick to judge.

                                I'm fine with letting it go, but don't misrepresent what I said.
