The NCAA's. UND vs. Duluth


Recommended Posts

The reality of sports is that the best team doesn't always win.   In college hockey very seldom does the number one overall seed win the whole thing. 

On a separate note for years UND fans have complained that BC always had an easy path to a Frozen Four by getting to always go through Worcester in their backyard.   This goes to show that just having a regional in your backyard is a guaranteed ticket to a Frozen Four, you need some puck luck as well.

They didn't quit, unlike half the f***ers on this board. 

Score two with the extra attacker with under 2 in regulation to tie it.  UMD wins it OT.....not so fast. Offsides. UND hit posts, crossbars and had one flop and stop on top of the net right

Sandy took 11 years to lead a team to a title.  We're in Berry's 6th year and two of those were effed up due to a pandemic... and he already got the team over the hump that they couldn't get over with

It is up to the athletes themselves whether to come back or not.

Yes but the coach has a lot of input to the player if they are ready or not.  I thought what Monty did was selfish and self serving with Terry and the rest that stayed that year to try win a Natty.

Umass looks like a solid, all-around team playing well at the right time, like us in 2016. Duluth is far from a shoo-in in Pittsburgh.

They also come in with a little unfinished business as well remembering their last meeting.

I don't think this was an example of an interior team beating a much better team. Both teams were/are solid with few real weaknesses.

The good news from yesterday?

We now have a group of players that know first hand how deep within themselves they have to, need to, look and dig for excellence.

One more rep, one more lap, one more takes on a new meaning. 

Talent is good; will is greater.

Will it so.

Kudos the Scheels Arena staff. Let adults be adults. Everyone of them was welcoming,  cordial and professional. No Jody's Jabronis at this event.

Totally agree. Did a great job with the ice too. No issues whatsoever

I told someone last night that maybe UND should hold off holding anymore regionals for a while. The ice was horrendous in Scheels arena. 

Starman made the opposite claim on the air?

This one stings. I'm proud of the team and feel bad for Scheel. Hockey is a game of bounces and we were on the unfortunate side of that last night. 

Those who are questioning Berry need to pull your heads out of your asses.

As time passes, I think I'll look back and be really happy that I had the chance to be in that arena until 1am, but right now it just feels like the worst loss in a long list of painful ones.

Really felt like that was going to be our experience to make up for the BU heartbreak.

People are tired of postseason stumbles. It just wears on fans after awhile. I don't think you are the only one.

Postseason stumbles are going to happen unless you win the NCAA title every year. Or don’t make the tourney at all.

UMD has 9 straight NCAA tournament wins.

Losses, sure.

But it's the type of losses.

.1 vs UNH

.6 vs MN

Dominating, yet losing to Michigan

2OT vs BU

5OT vs UMD

So painful

We have had way too many of those over the past 20 years, considering the talent that has come through this program during that time. And if Duluth wins it again, you can throw out the tired old "parity" argument.

Sandelins deal with the devil will end soon enough. That’s more than puck luck getting them all those 1 goal tourney wins. ;)

I bet there are fans of many fan bases that could give their top 5-6 worst loses. UND no different. Every year that you make the playoffs and don’t win a Championship OT sucks. Happens to 15 other teams every year.
