Side note- I'm 41.  Nothing compares to when the Gophers are in town.  I love to win, but with the Gophers I HATE to lose.

I am 43+ and I feel the same way. So many great games, so many great moments. The rivalry goes beyond the coaches and players to the fan base and even the media on both sides.

I'm 28 and I think this is the biggest rivalry. The players know it and Im sure with all the returning ones from last year, the game will be intense

Midco is apparently working on a deal to get this weekend's games simulcasted in the Twin Cities. Great news if true!

 

Forget the Twin Cities... We want it nationwide!

You mean like this..

In 2016-17 they played a series in Minneapolis

In 2017-18, they’ll play a series in Grand Forks

In 2018-19, they'll play a single game in Las Vegas.

In 2019-20 and 2021-22, they'll play series in Minneapolis. In 2020-21 and 2022-23, they'll play series in Grand Forks.

I'm waiting for this series to end up at the X for a game or two. Minnesota is the home team one night, UND is the home team the next night.

I'd guess the TV deal would be with FSN, just leave the FSN crew in Minneapolis.

I'd take back Frank and Doug over the two clowns they have now.

I don't know why they'd share with UND, since they own the rights, but I absolutely would share their broadcast with FSN and charge a decent amount.

There are a lot of quotes on here that sound like Bison fans talking about UND being beneath them. The gophers will never be beneath  us and will always be our biggest rival.

I have gone to the goof games in the Barn (which was Winter Sports Building, 1st 2 years of college), in the Winter Sports Center (which years after I graduated was renamed to Ralph Engelstad Arena), and in the palace the Ralph Engelstad Arena.

There was never another team that matched the Minnesota Gophers rivalry with UND. This crowd this weekend will transform those few in doubt, into believers.
