  1. NORTH DAKOTA vs. St. Cloud - SATURDAY Gameday

    So, what can we expect here? Is it that simple? Omaha is higher than UND now in Pairwise - does a series win by UND leapfrog/eliminate them? Or could Omaha still finish higher than UND if, say, UND loses a semifinal in St Paul? Gophers really $#*% the bed this weekend. They are on shaky ground at 13 and Penn State, meanwhile, is rolling. Our current standing is even more perilous than 2014. BU is the team that scares me. They will be one to watch for sure.

    I think if Penn State is out altogether they will send Notre Dame to Allentown and maybe Mankato to Sioux Falls vs UND. strange that if the Gophers lose this weekend they will have a three week break before they play in NCAAs. One week rest is ok but they might want to consider and exhibition vs. DeVry University in the meantime. A split for UND this weekend, meanwhile, bumps them up to 12 or 13.
  3. The Team Formerly Known As The Sioux ( Now Identity Free )

    Sioux Hockey mentality is preached, practiced, and engrained whether a bird is on the shoulder or not. As long as legacies like Bubbs, Dane, and Captains through the years continue to carry on that legacy, this mentality will endure. Agree, consistency in large does this year may be lacking but it’s hard to conclude that 40 years of success is on the ropes due to a .500 league record.

    Congrats to the Captain, Chay Genoway, on the Olympic Bronze Medal. Seven years after he left the program, I am still impressed by his leadership.

    Century has made a believer out of me. They sure didn’t look like much when I saw them lose to South three weeks ago. Central looked like they could name the score after they picked apart Red River last night. They seem to be peaking. I hope to make it home to catch the title in its entirety - crossing the river first to watch Moorhead in the Section 8AA semifinals. Magical time of year.

    Can someone please spare me the math and tell me what time the Czechs and Russians play tonight?

    I'm looking forward to an epic Central - Red River Semifinal. I'm banking on it going into OT, leaving the winner a bit flat for the next night. Davies takes advantage and wins their first state title.
  8. Far too early, but what the hell...Bracketology

    I'm reminded a lot about the 2014 season as follow along this journey on the bubble. Just getting in was a victory that year. 0% expectations as the #4 seed....then they kick in the door and make it to Philly. That was fun. 2011, 2015, 2016 were stressors because they were supposed to advance. Don't get me wrong, I loved all three, it's just neat when the underdog advances and especially when the underdog wears green.

    It's goofy as heck this week so try to follow Moy's logic. Personally, I'd rather see the Gophers in UND's regional than DU. http://www.uscho.com/2018/02/21/bracketology-might-see-michigan-go-worcester-minnesota-duluth-bridgeport/

    USA gets Slovakia again on Tuesday, for a right to take on the Czechs. https://www.olympic.org/pyeongchang-2018/results/en/ice-hockey/bracket-men.htm

    So it’s an “Eighth-Final” round game on Tuesday vs a Finland / Sweden / Canada type team? Someone who was second in their group? We will find out tomorrow.

    That’s a big win by Davies last night over Red River. Not only does it give them a berth at state, but it likely puts them on the opposite bracket for both Central and Red River. i know Century looks impressive out west but Davies (and South for that matter) took it to them two weeks ago in Fargo. Davies is a quality team, next week will be interesting.

    Attitude and Effort are controllable. I agree the talent is there but those other intangibles above are lacking. UND has got to have the win tomorrow. Even a sweep in Miami next weekend does little for them in the Pairwise. After that I can’t see the St. Cloud series going well. I hate to make cliches but the season may live or die tomorrow night.

    It is going to be weird watching UND on the road in the first round of the playoffs - hasn’t happened since 2002.
