  1. My wife has a 1999-2000 National Championship Hockey stick autographed by the entire 2000 North Dakota Championship team. What makes it more memorable for us is that we were in Providence to see it happen.
  2. Talk about a stupid comment. Is there any other TV station that covers UND? Let's fire all of the general managers. The reality is that this game was at risk because of the holiday. The NCAA made it tougher for any station to do the game by delaying it by 1-2 days. Now we the fan suffer. I guess I'll just have to listen to the game on KFGO and then drive to the hockey game from Fargo afterwards. I'm hoping we win of course but also hoping USD beats Grand Valley! I'm tired of Grand Valley
  3. I just called WDAZ. They said they made a bid for the game to the NCAA. They were just informed today that they had the rights to broadcast the game. However to broadcast the game they need to know by Monday afternoon at the latest to make the necessary arrangements to broadcast an away game. Net result is the NCAA didn't get back to them soon enough for them to arrange for a crew etc. to go to Omaha. I don't know what it takes to make the "necesssary arrangements" but I'll assume WDAZ tried to figure it out and because they knew so late they couldn't make it work. No matter what the f

    Four Refs

    I hated it. They couldn't move there sorry arses out of the way. How many times did the puck hit a ref this weekend? Gees.

    Reed Manke

    Based upon how pathetic the team looked with Bellmore as QB last week Manke's injury scares me. The team doesn't look the same with Belmore and we need Manke healthy. I guess we'll see this weekend if Belmore can begin to make better decisions and get over the downer end of year he had last year.
  6. Enjoyed the viedo. What group is sing the Saturday's All Right For Fighting song?
  7. Line combos: Defense: Lee and Jones Chorney and Finley Radke and Bina Genoway pushing everyone. Forwards: Toews centering Duncan and Porter Oshie centering Spirko and Kozek Checking line is Kaip centering Fabian and Zajac Watkins centering Vandevelde and Miller There are so many combos that we could do especially if Zajac scores like he did in the BCHL and Martens and Miller improve and if Watkins and Kozek increase their scoring. Porter could get pushed down to the checking line if that happens.
  8. Forwards: Seniors: Chris Porter 7 goals, 16 assists in 46 games Eric Fabian 6 goals, 11 assists in 37 games Juniors: Rylan Kaip 3 goals, 5 assists in 42 games Rastislav Spirko 11 goals, 20 assists in 39 games Sophomores: Ryan Duncan 16 goals, 20 assists in 46 games Andrew Kozek 7 goals, 6 assists in 46 games Ryan Martens 0 goals, 0 assists in 2 games Brad Miller 0 goals, 0 assists in 15 games TJ Oshie 24 goals, 21 assists in 44 games Jonathan Toews 22 goals, 17 assists in 42 games Matt Watkins 5 goals, 4 assists in 46 games Freshmen: Chris Vandevelde: He pl
  9. In a couple posts I'll throw my two cents in: My take on the players who will be contributing next year for the Sioux starting in goal and defence: I expect Stafford to sign with Buffalo. The only thing that may stand in the way is Buffalo is so cheap that they may try to get him after the Aug 15 deadline so they can sign him for a lower bonus and only for 2 years. At that point Stafford could elect to become a free agent and test the waters there. In either case I don
  10. My favorite quote from the article: "Look for Finley to remain at UND for a few seasons. "
  11. That looks like a Michigan jersey to me.
  12. My wife and I keep saying that what we wear has no bearing on the game. But then why the heck am I wearing the same clothes tonight that I wore last Friday when we beat Wisconsin? Everything has been cleaned of course.
  13. Even though I hate to hear Bison fans say "I told you so" I'm guessing that UND will be Division I in all sports in the next 3-4 years. So we will also be playing the Minnesotas in college football. Do you think UND fpootball will be more popular than UND hockey at that point? I'd have to say an emphatic NO! The reality is that NDSU is a football college and UND is a hockey college. As far as the state of North Dakota is concerned, who knows? I'd have to say that because UND hockey is being broadcast throughout the state now, that the fan base for hockey is much larger than for NDSU
  14. I'd rather have the momentum. But I also rather play Holy Cross than Michigan. Minnesota should roll over Holy Cross and the UND/Michigan game will be a battle. With East refs the game may come down to special teams play. But here's saying that with Parise playing well it comes down to goaltending and we pull out the Friday game. Saturday? Who knows? Minnesota has the best power play in the nation. If we can play five on five we win. If we're in the box a lot... All year Minnesota has been winning on offense. Their defensemen pinch more than anyone I've seen and it wins them most ga
  15. When I was looking at the possible brackets before last weekend's Final Five I predicted we would get either Michigan on Boston College for our first game. I really didn't want to play either of those teams because they have seemed to be our nemesis in the past. Now that we have Michigan all I can say is at least it's not at the Yost! I'm afraid of Michigan but still think we can beat them. Michigan is super young too and the difference for them is their goaltending has been suspect and their young defensemen have been inconsistent. If we play like we have the past few weekends and don't pu
  16. I'm on the other side or the blue line side. So my seats are just on the right edge of the bench as you look at it from behind. . That damn guy who dresses up like a bunny for dance fever is at the bottom of the section to my right but close to the bench too.
  17. Hey Sioux7 do you drive an SUV with a Sioux 7 license plate?
  18. I agree. Just buy your tickets at ticketmaster and take Friday off. You can always find a place to stay.
  19. Hey Tiny, If you're willing to play the ticketmaster fees just go there and buy tickets. I checked it out for the heck of it and you could get tickets in row 2 of section 207 for either semifinal games and the championship game. So get tickets now.
  20. I think I tried this last year but... We're in section 116 row 10. We are on the blue line side of the section though. Three couples wearing UND stuff for the 16th year in a row. Yeah I know we're old. Somtime this weekend stand up an yell at us. I'll look for you too. Go Dogs! Go Sioux!
  21. I always forget about the unbalanced schedule. Here's another one. No team should have the last weekend of the season off like UAA and Mankato did this year. There is too much riding on the playoffs and that extra week's rest could mean the difference in a playoff win or loss. You can't tell me the schedule makers can't figure out a way to have everyone play the last wekend and probably the last two weekends of the regular season. As a fan i want my team playing the last weekend of the regular season since there is usually a lot of excitement.
  22. I have regional tickets and cannot go on Saturday the 25th due to a 90th birthday party in the family. So I read the comments above and called the REA ticket office. Their response was "No we do not take tickets back, we cannot refund the money, and we cannot resell tickets". So if you can't use the tickets you'll need to do like me and look for another UND fan to buy them so you are assured a Gopher fan is not sitting in your seats.
  23. The hockey playoffs as is, are fine. Two out of three in the first round is great. The Final Five is fine too. The top three qualifiers deserve not to play that extra game that the 4th and 5th qaulifiers do. I've had tickets to the WCHA Final Five since it's beginning at the St Paul Civic Center. It is still the best tournament in the country. Four out of five years the Final Five is more exciting than the Frozen Four (I go to t he Frozen Four too) I like the Final Five in the cities even though I no longer live there and feel it would not be the same somewhere else. When it was at the Brad
