  1. The speed of the game has changed tremendously over the years. HS kids now play at the speed of the 90's college teams, and college teams play at the speed of the pro game in the nineties. And the pro game now is crazy fast. Add that to the equipment changes, especially goalie pad area, and toss in big goaltenders and yeah, the 1980's college teams would struggle to have a winning record. And yeah, there is no off season any more.
  2. Friday - Mr. Smith Saturday - Mr. Poolman
  3. 3 keys: Put Senden on Wilkie, own the cycle in the CC end and bury our chances. GO SIOUX!!!!
  4. Beat on Scheel all you want, but what was missing from last night's game was offensive puck possession. You lose that battle against a team like Duluth and you are going to spend too much time chasing, then you hand the opponent too many quality opportunities. Our zone entry and puck possession in the second and third periods was a couple of notches below lackluster. Get down a couple of goals and pinch too much, bang...breakaway. Perfect recipe for a "L". Those breakaway goals are not on Scheel, including the shortie (bad PP puck management). To come out on top against a team like this UND HAS TO figure out zone entry. The dogs made an adjustment on the blue line at the start of the second, and it killed our possession time. We did not adjust, and we could not overcome the momentum flip of that shorhander. Certainly Scheel let in a couple he'd like to have back, and I'm sure he had a nightmare about the one that went in his glove and bounced out, but this loss is not entirely on him. It was a team loss. Coaching, execution, and mentally...UND was outworked. Reload, bring in Tychonic...and be relentless on the puck. No space, no time, and win the races.
  5. 11 out of 12 points on the year from Miami. That is how you earn a Penrose cup.
  6. Pinto. Thome. Business Suits. All business for 60 minutes. Three points. Carry on. GO SIOUX!!!
  7. This weekend is a good test for UND. Omaha comes in hungry, and capable of putting up goals. The Sioux need to play a pair of 60 minute games for the sweep. If UND keeps their first half intensity, I think we pocket 6 key NCHC points and see a TCoS on Saturday. BRING IT!
  8. Woog teams always came to play, and we loved to hate those goofer teams because they were dangerous on any given night. R.I.P. Coach
  9. Quality road sweep for this team. Credit to goofy, they brought the intensity tonight and made a game of it. Hats off to UND for standing tall and bringing pressure in the last six minutes. GO SIOUX!!!
  10. Always great to dominate the goofers. There will be a day when this goes the other way, so I'll celebrate tonight and look for the Sioux to hang another touchdown tomorrow night.
  11. Looking for a stream? BTNplus 14.95 /monthly
  12. This UND team can play defense all night long, and score on their chances. I like them for a sweep. GO SIOUX!!
  13. Just win games and let other teams worry about PWR.
  14. My phone audio is delayed enough to sync TH with flosports. A good blend.
  15. RIP Sprig. Your thoughtful banter and deep Sioux loyalty will be missed by many. Thanks for posting this MM.
  16. I'll settle for that. :-) Thanks for the correction.
  17. True enough, but they do have 7 titles and have been to the dance enough times to warrant mention (imho).
  18. No Michigan or Wisconsin either. This is a very rare year for the tourney, historically speaking.
  19. Yep. We need a coach with a proven record of hitting the twine. D-corps will be ok with Smaby or other coach staying. We need an offensive minded coach who can give the PP a thirst for goals and the skills to get them. Our offensive output needs to double.
  20. Bring the intensity, every shift. Give them no space with that puck, and crash their net at every chance. When the TCoS happens, the roof should come off the building tonight. GO SIOUX!
  21. Excellent team effort tonight, in spite of some blind reffing and refs who intend to blow. TCoS tomorrow night is monstrous. Go out there and TAKE IT!
