    r
    I guess it's 14 games. And bad contract if that is the case.

But they do show a majority of their conference games on a medium that a large number of sports fans in this country have. And I do understand that other sports largely subsidize the Big Ten's ability to do that.
      There are 84 Big Ten hockey games on the schedule this season. BTN's current schedule includes 20 telecasts. I don't think that qualifies as a majority.

        There are games on other networks. And again, criticism is not mutually exclusive. I'm not claiming Big Ten doesn't have issues too.

        I think the probability of higher profile games like UMN vs UMD or UMN vs UND not being on TV at Minnesota is 0.0%. How those games, which will draw a relatively high number of viewers, are not being televised is beyond me.

          Might have to try that. Otherwise we will probably just show up very late to the Union/Tech game.

            My first time out that way. Looking forward to see that area.

            Hmmm. My places that I could think of are if you are coming from the south, not from Superior. I'll think more.

              I checked last night in the Duluth-Superior area and everything is booked tight. Not a room to be found. My friend found a place about 30 or so miles away.

                Game day!!

                Are tDogs fans still ornery? They weren't very nice the last time I was in Duluth. I can only assume the ornery factor is ramped up after losing the championship game last season.

                  Given the Gophers' recent record against tDogs, if anyone has reason to be ornery, it's Gopher fans.

                    Agreed, and that's why I was surprised the last time I was there. tDogs completed a home/home sweep and their fans still seems ornery.

                      I know I'm ornery:

                        The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

                              Having hit the weight training room with the Gophers over the summer, I bet he can do more than one pull-up now.
