sioux_11 Posted March 24, 2003 Share Posted March 24, 2003 I returned home from the Final Five and after watching the Gophers win the WCHA tournament I just wanted to express my feelings towards the Gophers and their fans. I HATE THEM BOTH!!! I have no other hate for any sports team like I do for the Gophers. They are such idiots. The Fans They do the same exact cheers at every game it's as if they are zombies. "That's Debatable", "We always were", and "Thank you (After the announcer says there is 1 minute remaining in the period)" are the stupidest cheers in the world especially when you do them every time you can. The fans are the most arrogant in all of sports. I could talk forever about their unbelieveably stupid "M-I-N-N-E-S-O-T-A, Sota Sota" cheer. They do it after every goal and at the end of every stinking period. The Team They are a bunch of GOONS!!! I can garuantee you that if they didn't have last years Frozen Four tournament in the Twin Cities they would be going on 24 years without a NCAA title instead of winning last years. I could also garuantee if they had this year's WCHA tournament anywhere but the Twin Cities area the Gophers don't win it. Instead they give the Gophers home ice advantage throughout the tournament and there are twice as many Gopher fans as there are fans from the other schools combined. Also, the extremely ugly jerseys they have. As if having the colors maroon and gold isn't bad enough they have about 8 alternate jerseys which are the ugliest in all of college hockey (Yes, even worse than Brown University). The Gophers run the WCHA. They have the tournament in the Twin Cities every year and they influence the All-WCHA team. How does Parise get on the 3rd team All-WCHA and Vanek on the 2nd team, but Parise is a Hobey Baker candidate and Vanek is not. Because there wasn't any Gopher fans holding a gun to the Hobey Baker committee's head. I would love for any Gopher fans that belong to this forum to write in and try and prove me wrong.
