        I didn't troll in your season thread.

        And Husky: our highlight will be when we make our title run.

            Didn't you hear that their football team is dropping to D-III, and will play at other college fields during their season, and the Vikings will take over TCF stadium.

                Yeah, because good teams never take advantage of the opportunities they're given in a game. The Huskies had opportunities and buried them, that's what good teams do. The gophers had plenty of opportunities to score but didn't finish, that's what struggling teams do. At times the gophers did it to themselves and at times the Huskies forced the bad plays. In the first period the Huskies D was pressing deep into the offensive zone, moreso than I've ever seen from them in the past. It was a welcomed change and provided results. Maybe they pulled the reigns back after being up 3-0 but I hope they come out the same way tonight.
                Good teams Do take advantage of those opportunities. Great teams create multiple chances with their playmaking and back-checking. They play great D consistently and have solid goaltending. I didn't see St. Cloud playing at the level of an NCAA championship team last night, is all I am saying. I didn't say they are bad. I just thought the original post went a little far to say that St. Cloud played the first period like a team bound for the championship game. I think there are several teams in the country that can put together a better first period, maybe even St. Cloud. The Gophers poor play was as much a factor as how well St. Cloud played. From my observations, I would bet against a St. Cloud appearance in the championship game.

                  Gophers have a highlight too! Hanging 5 on Eidsieve last week! It's not much, but you can't take it away from them (us - but I don't play ).

                  Maybe they'll play well again tonight and get another highlight.

Of course when you're bitter and upset about having an inferior team it's understandable that you need to find anything to complain about.
                    The guy didn't even say "we" or "us", (which doesn't bother me when people say it). He said "but beating the Gophers always reinforces my self worth I guess". My point being, either he plays on the team, or he is a pretty pathetic person to require a bunch of college kids winning a game against a bunch of college kids to feel self-worth.

                    And I am not bitter and upset about having an inferior team. But it is frustrating to watch the team I CHEER FOR ( I don't play on the team) when they play below their ability and lose to a team they should have been able to beat.

                      I don't think anyone can realistically talk national championship for the Huskies. At this point it's all about seeing the team get their first NCAA win! I agree that unless one of the two goalies goes on a crazy run this isn't a national championship team, but they definitely have the ability to get the NCAA monkey off their back. As for the next 2-3 years, we can hope the Dean Blais prediction becomes truth!

                        1. Pretty sure he was being sarcastic, at least that's how I took it.

                        2. Your team shouldn't have been able to beat ours, hence the inferior team comment.

                            Hey, the U of MN student section has no idea what's going on and they whine and complain about calls too. Difference between ours and yours is SCSU's is coordinated enough to get a BS chant going.

                            Completely agree. We gave up good chance, you guys did too, difference was we finished ours, but against a team like Denver or Miami, if we'd played like that in the first, we weren't gonna be up 3-0 unless they'd had a horrible period. Everything just happened to fall our way, as MN was bricking on opportunities. In fact, for a second I was ****ed because on the 3rd goal it looked like Zabkowicz was gonna cough up a huge opportunity for MN, instead he catches a break with the incoming Gopher's momentum being too much, then he turns it into a great pass and I don't know if Fischer was scared to give up a PP or thought since Roe is so small he could just outmuscle him, but within 10 seconds we go from "Oh ****!" to burying another one, and with less than ten left to go in the period too.

                            Everything was comin' up Milhouse!

But winning in Grand Forks and Denver were way more impressive. The only case you can make for this being a big win is because it was our most recent, 'cause this time of year every single game is the biggest game of the year. In a couple weeks last night's game won't matter much, especially bc I don't see us needing any tiebreaker to seperate us from the Gophers this year.

                              In years past, yeah, it was special to beat the Gophers. That's when they were a good team. This year, taking 3 of 4 from Duluth is more to hang your hat on than if we sweep the Gophers.



                              Exactly. Its easy to see why you're annoyed when your in-state, little sister of a school that doesn't get a quarter of the big name recruits you do has a chance tonight to finish a sweep on your ice and go up 8 points with 10 games to play .
                              It is a sign of poor coaching when teams in the WCHA can only get up for the Gophers.

It makes them feel like they finally have a meaningful existence. For Gopher fans, SCSU is not much of a rivalry. They're more like a nuisance.
                              I agree it is not a rivalry. SCSU hasn't been around long enough to be a rival.
