    For a school that hates us so much- it's fascinating that so many of you know history of our helmets more than we do, that you take our fight song and alter the words for fun.

    I can't think of a single thing that is equivallent the other way. Not one.

    Isn't that interesting?
    I find that hard to believe. Even if you weren't in the building for games like, say, this one: http://www.uscho.com/box/mens-hockey...-vs-minnesota/ , I'm willing to bet that you know at least one thing about the University of Minnesota's fight song whether you like to admit it or not. When you hear it that many times, I imagine it starts to stick after awhile.

    Somebody is being heavy?

    Or do you consider the time when we start throwing insults your way lighter.

    Which, it seems, you missed for a LONG time now.

    Is there a quiz to get into the game? I think it's really nice that you care so much to know about us, but forgive me for not giving a crap about your school.

    I'm sure that our hockey team is very familar with yous. But I'm not fighting, nor playing. And I don't see the point in learning your fight song or traditions to make my entertianment more enjoyable.

    It's a game that I watch, that's it.

    It would probaly make it more interesting to know the players of your team, sure. I know the style you like to play, as it's very very fun to watch- especially when my team is playing yours.

    But beyond that, what's that point?

    As I said in our thread- you remind me of the 10 year old boy who insults the little girl he has a crush on.

    Those drunks leave their own state for here in droves and Prince > Nugent. Put the puffy away you're not worthy.

    Interesting history in the UGLY helmet saga:

    But the most dramatic change in headgear occurred on an otherwise uneventful day in late February 1989. Former captain Alex Roberts remembers it like it was yesterday. "Right before the league playoffs, we're coming up the stairs to the locker room" he recounts, "and we start smelling fresh paint. The smell's everywhere. "We get up to the top of the stairs and see the training room tables in the hallway with a bunch of helmets on 'em painted dark blue with the yellow wings, just like the football team's—and we literally thought it was a joke. The helmets were to out of the normal protocol. We're like, 'Where are our real helmets, the white ones? What the hell are these? We were laughing our asses off. Then Red (Berenson) comes in and says, 'You guys are wearing these.'

    "That night we bought Red one of those baseball caps with the football helmet design on it and gave it to him the next day. 'If we're gonna wear these things on our heads, you are too.' He did."

    "Funny thing was," Roberts adds, "we had all gotten buzz cuts that week for team unity before the playoffs. And now we all had to readjust our helmets to fit our smaller heads, which meant the yellow stripes were all out of whack." But the design got the attention it was supposed to get. When the Wolverines came out for warm ups against Bowling Green to open their best of three playoff series, the Falcons actually stopped what they were doing to gawk at the Michigan team's new look. "We just said, 'Hey man, this is us,"' Roberts recalls, chuckling. "We've gotta do what we're told. 'All I can say is, we felt pretty corny."

    That's interesting. Maybe we should look into that more. Seems like you have some issues with your personal outlook. You need some more self esteem.
    They're all Prince fans, logic is foreign to them. Now you know why Wisconsin is full of drunks. They live in the next state, they have to be bombed to be able to put up with them.

    I think that you meant "Gophers get swept."

    Minnesota has played for decades in a conference against schools that are normally well in its shadow. We haven't had OSU, MSU, Notre Dame in our conference. We were an even bigger dog in the old WCHA than Michigan was in the CCHA...and as the only D1 program in the state, still are in Minnesota. So every old WCHA and current MN team circles the dates against us. The few games we have against schools with our stature...the Gophers get up for those schools. Prior to this year's sweep, the Gophers record was 12-6 against Michigan since 2000, 6-2 against Notre Dame since 2000, and our record in our most recent series against BC is 3-0-1...with a 23 to 7 goal differential. So I probably misspoke before...but I mean the Gophers often play at their best against large, overall equally prestigious programs.
    So since this is THIS season, what happened in January? The first game was close, but the second one wasn't.
