Goon Posted March 18, 2003 Share Posted March 18, 2003 This is a post from Yellowdog. Yesh... It probably is as far from the truth as possible. Or is it... I don't remember many 25 year old Candians on UND's 1997 and 2000 NCAA championship teams. The truth about North Dakota's Championships I know since I just signed up for this board some of you will take that as a lack of knowledge about college hockey. It actually is that I have real human friends to talk to about hockey. Just because i have not posted here before means nothing so those of you who equate the two need to get a life. Now for the real issue. Why the sioux have won more championships than the gophers and why that is about to change. The number #1 reason is the fact that minnesota teams have been all minnesota kids for the past 20 years. The sioux fans I talk to seem to think minnesota has some built in advantage and should always be winning championships, but the sioux have been the one with the advantage until now. The gophers would have won twice as many titles during the past 20 years as the sioux if we would have mixed in 25 year old canadians along side of our native minnesotans. Lucia changed this policy just two years ago and we already have a championship. We will now begin to dominate the wcha and the nation like we would have the last 20 years with this same type of recruiting policy. I would love to see what a team of all north dakotans would do at this level. If they could get within 10 goals of any other team that would be a victory. I heard alot of whining about the fact that the sioux were without Parise for a couple of games this year. Join the club. the gophers have been losing players to the juniors forever and it has cost them games. Since nodak finally recruited someone who has not started a family yet they see how the rest of the world has lived. We also lost players in every olympic year except the last couple which has cost minnesota some potentially very good seasons. The point is this, if minnesota would not have handcuffed itself with their recruiting policy they would have more than doubled the sioux's champioship output of the last 20 years, and we will start our run to 10 championships now and we will get there before the sioux will. Mostly it is just fun to poke fun at you sioux fans because you take this so seriously because it is all you have up there. By the way nice schedule this year you can look at that when you exit in the first round. Jump on our bandwagon now, back to back championships with only 2 seniors graduating this year.
