          I get the sense that teams from other conferences just don't take the WCHA seriously. Sure we have some teams at the lower end of the competitive scale, but I think Notre Dame came into this series thinking "Yeah, this weekend we got us one of those crappy WCHA BS teams that we can handle easily." We beat the he!! out of them physically and mentally for 110 out of 120 minutes this weekend. They had no answer for anything we threw at them. Gee whiz, our split with LSSU last week and with Tech a few weeks back were tougher series than what we went through with the vaunted #5 Domers.

          The Western Michigan guys still can't get over that they lost 2-of-3 to a team from the "crappy WCHA." And Mankato has freakin' OWNED the Nachos this year. Both Alaska teams are playing well and have made OOC noise.

          We're doing well this year. Underestimate us at your peril...

            The Big Ten and Nachos don't allow the "slow down" style of play the WCHA does. Both teams were able to skate. BG has one of the best transition games and it showed. They were opportunistic with their chances, had a lot of puck luck, and Dop played very well when needed.

                  To clarify, by "us" I meant the WCHA as a league, not necessarily Mankato or BG.

                        I was wondering what the non-MTU fans think of it so far. As we get more comfortable in what we're doing we're trying to expand into more WCHA and less MTU focused discussions.

                          I listened to this week's episode and enjoyed it. Matt Wellens was a good guest to have, and I thought the talk about the future of the league and things like video streaming were good discussions.

                            How about an hour-long weekly WCHA show and a shorter Tech specific show?

                              Iím more curious what was said for two separate UAH players to earn 10-minute misconduct penalties. I donít think Iíve ever seen a team meltdown like that in a period.

                                very funny...maybe, most weeks we seem to have enough content. I've thought about about doing something like that and maybe it will come as content grows
                                I do like having a guest like Matt or someone following another WCHA team like Geof or Shane Frederick...we shall see how it goes. If we start recording 90 minutes consistently I might try to split it up.
