    In an effort to change the topic I offer this: When the best team in the country pounced on a freshman defenseman's mistake last night, the team rightly jumped in celebration for winning an overtime playoff game. Then their fans erupted in a continued chant of "You suck!" As I listened to this I wondered to whom the "You Suck" applies? Was it the UND goalie who has more NCAA national championship rings than the entire Saint Cloud State roster? Was it the Freshman defenseman who made an ill advised clearing pass to a top line St. Cloud Forward? Was it to the Coaching staff of UND who also holds more NCAA championship rings than the SCSU coaching staff? Perhaps it was directed at the UND hockey program with its 8 National Championships hanging at REA, as compared to zero in NHC. Or maybe it was directed at the UND fans who were there supporting their 14th ranked hockey team from a campus 230 miles farther away than Saint Cloud, and an 8-1 attendance effort. My final consideration was that maybe, just maybe these fans don't consider any of these items when they chant "you suck' because they all have a certain lack of class and the ability to examine their own behavior. After examining the cases above, it is easy to recognize who truly sucks.

    I would agree Terry is the best as well, from the games I have watched. Perhaps he is be passed over because he took an Asian sabbatical in the middle of hockey season?
  3. 2018 NCHC Frozen Faceoff

    There are a lot of good seats left for the game. I was at the box office at 5 and bought a block six for both games 11 rows up between the blue line and the center line. He tried to sell me row one, but I will leave those for someone who wants to pound on the glass (they allow that at the X).
  4. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    It’s been a nice break, shot a deer, making sausage, visited with family over Christmas, even watched a Saturday night Vikings game live, without stessing about our hockey team. But I’ll be back in the saddle as soon as the holidays are over.
  5. NORTH DAKOTA @ Huskies - SATURDAY Gameday

    Rewatched Cam’s SO save. I’m not a goalie expert but did it seem to any goalie here like he baited the Husky with an open 5 and covered it with his stick at the last second?

    SCSU skated 5-3 enough last night.

    from the article: There are signs of resurgence on the ice. In the most recent USCHO.com poll, five Big Ten teams were ranked in the top 17: No. 5 Minnesota, No. 7 Wisconsin, No. 10 Notre Dame, No. 16 Ohio State and No. 17 Penn State. Most recent USCHO PWR rankings (which are about as good as anything right now) has 1 Big10 team in the Top 16, only 2 less than the WCHA. And 'poof' goes the resurgence

    It is always nice to have old friends over for dinner.
  9. UND to cut women's hockey

    I was just talking about his previous employment. YOU brought up the political party. So since you are begging for a political discussion here ya go: Before this 'political appointee from Minnesota' with zero ties to my Alma Mater and no experience running a University got his job, he was a feckless representative from Minnesota. He was famous here for accomplishing nothing for his constituents in the 6th except marching in lock-step with a confessed and convicted boy molester Dennis Hastert. He never crossed The Speaker and Hastert publicly stated he could count on Mark. I don't blame him for the budget shortfall, that goes to the representatives in Bismarck who spent the last 8 years cutting taxes and increasing spending during the bumper years, and immediately started cutting the first time the oil money slowed down. Anyone who has a has a problem with the actual cutting of the program needs to have a conversation with your state representatives if you think this should be priority. No MafiaMan, I hold him responsible to the manner in which the women and coaches found out. And to the the top recruit who was visiting. I find the situation bizarre that I knew via Twitter while the women were on the ice. That was an embarrassment to the University. But I suppose "since he is a Republican, you think nothing he does could ever be wrong". I personally long for the days when they appointed qualified people who had a connection to My University and not appointed for the politics they espouse. But maybe I have too long of a memory in this day and age of hyper-partisanship. And don't you dare say I made it political, you brought up his political party and accused me of being partisan. That would just make you an internet troll and a hypocrite. As I said before, I was trying to remain civil.

    You want to make this political, huh MM?

    Or make a stand. Mark hasn't changed much in the last 10 years. Too bad.

    I guess one of us is deceived.

  14. UND to cut women's hockey

    I am hearing the women found out during practice, with a high level recruit visiting. This was handled about as badly as could be. I had a very low opinion of Kennedy when he was a Minnesota representative. Somehow he has lowered that opinion. just trying to maintain civility.
  15. Time to re-look at certain rules?

    I second that!
