  1. Or just move the Tourney to Xcel, I mean you would allow probably 90% of the people going to avoid getting on a plane, especially IF Umass ends up being eliminated due to covid protocols... also if that happens I am just gonna say it, CALL BEMIDJI, I'd rather see UMD play an understudy than get a free ride.
  2. I wonder if St.Thomas will look into renovating the Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum, I know they got rid of the old Ice making equipment awhile back but the space has real potential, they could cut in some gates to the existing seating, and put in removable seating that would take the stands all the way to where the ice would be, which would give you an arena with seating for over 6000, add in a video board in the center and you are set. The place already has plenty of concessions, and plenty of parking space. Seems like the best option rather than trying to build a whole new arena from scratch
  3. You could just swap out Miami for MNSU... I think both teams would go for it.
  4. As someone who went to MNSU for grad school, I never got the impression that there was any real hate for UND, I mean we wanted to beat them because if you can beat UND it kind proves your a good team, the hate I saw really was reserved for Minnesota, and then there was kind of a thing with Ferris for a bit but Ferris didn't stay good enough for it to turn into anything good.
  5. I'm gonna disagree on that one, though I may be biased, I understand the whole idea that "if the team that we lost to wins, then we would have won", but really its anyone's guess, I remember seeing a study once where out of all the major team sports hockey was the hardest to predict the outcome because there are so many factors that go into a single game. I will have to cheer for UMD in the semi final, because much as I despise there fans, I despise the teams from New England even more... and the Northeast in general.
  6. I think that's fair point, he is 67, so he's not getting any younger, also he might not want to deal with all the Politically Correct BS going on campus now, I forget why Denver let him go in the first place but didn't it have something to do with him saying something insensitive?
  7. I agree there is definitely a lot of development that still needs to happen, but I think as you see these companies start to mature, you will see more teams and leagues start be covered by a single service.
  8. The TV thing is falling by the wayside, I mean as streaming quality and internet speeds improve it just isn't going to make sense to have traditional TV channels for this kind of thing anymore, it will just be an app on the smart tv/console/fire/etc. or a streaming site.
  9. Smart money is on a split, though I could see MNSU sweeping given there good record at home, still if a sweep occurred either way it will still be a close series, I'm betting both coaches will be preaching the "stay out of the box" gospel hard to there players, as both teams are dangerous on the PP. As to the ASU coach... I have been saying for a while, if they are serious about joining the NCHC, they need college caliber coaching staff, a real arena, and real training facilities. Listening to the ASU coach whine after the Saturday night game was pretty pathetic, it was the kind of salty
  10. Well if you want food, Pub 500 is probably the best for that, but you are going to want to get reservations, if you re just looking for beer Blue Bricks has a nice atmosphere and good tap selection but the kitchen is small so food may take awhile, Pagliai's pizza Is also a great option... if you can get a seat, good pizza and beer on tap. Keep in mind all of these are in walking distance to the arena. If you have a DD, Uber/Lyft or Kato Cab, Mankato Brewery in North Mankato is a good option, they don't serve food but have a list of places that deliver, otherwise there is always the Loose Moose
  11. Well, if ASU had its arena situation sorted out a few years back MNSU and ASU would be getting ready to join the NCHC next season but I digress. The reality in the WCHA is that the Alaska Schools are about to cut there hockey programs, hell possibly all there athletic programs, the simple reality is that even if they move into a Canadian league the travel expenses are still going to be high - not as high as their current arrangement but with the deep cuts happening its going to be hard to justify keeping both athletic programs. That means for the WCHA 7 there are two options, stick with t
  12. Usually visiting teams sit in the 00 an 01 sections, If you get to standing room only the seats across from the 00 section are student overflow, so sometimes it is possible for standing room only people to sit there, but it depends on how many students are there, and the students have become a lot more involved since the last game at Verizon (now its just the Mankato civic center), I think the last time UND played here they still had the blue and red seats, they have really gone all out on renovating the place since then, NHL sized sheet now, center ice video board, way better concessions.
  13. weird could swear when I clicked on it last night it said "sorry these tickets went fast!" maybe it was an error, not that it matters have Maverick season tickets.
  14. So just curious, does anyone think this season is going to be critical for Berry? I don't want to be "that guy", but since winning the National Tourney, he's had one post season in the tourney and then failed to appear in the last two national tournaments . Granted He hasn't had the reins very long but, UND has high expectations. Also with Hakstol in a assistant role in Toronto now I would argue that it wouldn't be hard for UND to attract Hakstol back to UND, granted the money might not be as good.
