    Thumbs up tUMD @ UNO - Please File the Appropriate Paperwork

    UMD returns to Omaha after being swept in last years series at the CLink. I am going to presume that the arena is called the "Clink" Because of Hogan's Heroes star Colonel Clink.


    Anyway UNO was swept by UNH which has caused some UNO fans on twitter to become down on their disrespected team.

    UMD throttled the USNDT 7-0 in their exhibition game this weekend but didn't play very well in December. They barely won against WMU and were swept by SCSU at home (they should have split because its **** unlucky that they didn't win on that Friday game).

    A buddy and myself will be attending the series and I look forward to seeing a new rink. I haven't been to Nebraska since I was a kid and I'm greatly looking forward to getting out of the Cities and seeing somewhere new.

    Any tips on what bars are good after the games?

    I like it.

    UNO had(has?) their own forum. I asked them a few questions about Omaha a few years back. They were very helpful, but I never made the trip. I think I found some of their people on here too, but I don't think old post exist.

    There used to be 2 or 3 red cow people who posted on here regularly, but I haven't seen anything from them in weeks. As a former resident of the area who still visits there frequently, I'll try to help, for what it's worth. You're likely staying in the Hilton, which connects by skywalk to the C Link. It's just a couple blocks north of the Old Market area of Omaha, which has a ton of bars and restaurants. There are also some new, but kinda average bars/restaurants a couple blocks west of the C Link, by the new baseball field that's home to the College World Series. Some nice restaurants (although less hockey-friendly) out at Midtown Crossing, a couple miles west on Dodge.

    And there are multiple Red Lobsters. I think it's a 10% discount if you wear NoDak gear.

    I first thought the Old Market was much further away. We'll walk there for after game festivities.

    Don't you have a SCSU thread to be posting in or something?

    Have fun, Omaha was my group's favorite road trip! We went to an Irish place right after the game that was within walking distance of the arena. Beware, their Irish Car Bombs are lethal LOL! We went to another place called Froggy's(I believe...?) which was fun. There are quite a few bars by the arena that we didn't hit though so I'm sure you can explore if you're staying down there.

    Sounds like there is plenty to chose from! I'm very excited. Plus this could be the last time UMD plays in the CLink.

    Biddco, there's not much else to tell you for food and lodging. There's plenty within 6 blocks of the arena. If you're looking for something to do during the day saturday there will be the annual outdoor show there as well and anout a 40 minute drive west on I 80 is the strategic air and space museum. Pretty interesting if you like military stuff. Casinos across the river if you like squandering money. Have fun.

    another thing, Bag-N-Save/No Frills supermarkets have $9 off coupons if you go to the customer service booth and ask for them. That will get you in the door for $12.

    That is a great tip that we will have to take advantage of. Sounds like theres plenty of great places within walking distance that will be able to take advantage of. We plan on visiting the zoo on Saturday as well.

    If you want to drive around a bit, check out California Taco and Brewburger, they were both on Triple D and I thought both were very good.

    I already weighed in in the UNO thread for you about the "what-to-do's" for you here in Omaha. I saw your post in Mavpuck, too, about it. Caveat emptor on some of that advice rendered to you there based on what I already had to say about some of the places they mentioned that I warned you off of. Whether my advice is good wholly depends on your food and drink tastes. Just remember that my wife is a chef and the former director of the culinary school here and my thoughts are VERY colored by that.

    Megna and Coach Blais finish out the last game of their utterly ridiculous and undeserved suspensions tonight.

    What this series may bring, who knows? Based on what I have seen UNO do in conference, and, what I have seen UNO and other NCHC teams do out of conference, I am of a mind that the NCHC, save St Cloud State, isn't very good this year.

    That said, we have looked very, very good in every home conference game we have played. Red Berenson, Dave Hakstol, and Enrico Blasi, all three, publicly said after playing UNO they had a difficult time skating with us.

    I'm getting more and more unhappy with the direction the program has taken, frankly, the past 3 seasons. The program has regressed and I am getting tired of all these incidents that have occurred over those seasons that have manifestly affected this team and the program over that same time frame. We've gone from the unfortunate incident realm to "trend" and that is concerning.

    Doesn't look there will much more than about 6,000 at tonight's game.

    My gift to UMD fans. The game is on TV, locally. You can watch it. This is totally under the radar. It is not on any TV schedule that I have seen at the places you would normally see it. The game is being broadcast statewide here on NETV (Nebraska Public Television) and it is also streamed on their web site, freebie, and, it's a great stream, too:

    https://netnebraska.org/interactive-m...-duluth-vs-uno

    They are doing 3 UNO home games this season this way, and this is the 2nd of the 3 they will show.

    Enjoy.

    If he wants to go to a Triple D restaurant here in Omaha, he can also go to Amato's and while eating, he can stare out the window and watch our new arena being built.

    It's literally right across the street.

    The others are Big Mama's, Dixie Quick's, and Joe Tess.

    As far as overall food quality, the best, by far, is Dixie Quick's. It has moved since the show aired and is now over in Council Bluffs, however.

    Also went to Joe Tess, and thought it was meh. I did, however, get the fried carp, which is notoriously inedible, so I would certainly go back and give them a chance with a more traditional eating fish.

    Indelible is an exaggeration, but carp is much maligned. However, it's the specialty at Joe Tess Place and the main dish they featured on Triple D, so I had to try. It was not bad in any way, just not something I'd try again.
