I thing the B1G was the worst thing for MN and WI and maybe the best thing for NCAA hockey overall.
Maybe someone can help answer this, but wasn't the decision to definitely go to a home host format for the Big 10 tournament next year? Or is that just under consideration? I think I'd prefer the home host concept for the tournament, since it would make Big 10 league games all the more consequential and maybe add some intensity to some of the games. Without the old rivalries we had in our old conferences, that intensity just isn't there now, with a few possible exceptions that have carried over like Minn-Wisc, Mich-Mich St. I'd think the rivalries between Notre Dame and the two Michigan schools will be good, too; For the fans, it's not that long since their shared CCHA years, and those schools have had some pretty robust and historical rivalries in other sports over the years, too.
I sure do miss those ND games, and Minnesota rivalries like UMD and St. Cloud. The latter were nipped in the bud before they really began.
Holy crap that was a bad call in OT
Unbelievable. Then again scoring one goal in regulation isn’t going to win many games but yeah that call was horrible
Not a bad start to the season. I don't know how good the Gophers are, but they look deep up front, at least. Nice mix of older and younger players.
Well, you got an answer tonight of how good they might be. 8-0, 4 road and 4 home games, miniscule goals against average. I hope they can keep it up.
ehh...MI didn't have 4 of their top forwards, and York. I definitely like the way MN is playing, and they have to be a top 10 team, but I'm not ready to go further than that. Lafontaine is looking very solid in goal.
Thread was dead for years. Funny how winning brings out the fair weather fans
I guess they need to hire an @Dakota Sioux clone to keep their team chat active.
Ya if you want I can sit here and talk to myself for months so the thread is always "active"
I'm sure you have better things to do, but thanks for the offer ... and Go Gophers!
Ha, Ha! I found this thread just like I found a hockey game this afternoon, by accident.
Wisconsin 3, formerly undefeated #1 Minnesota 1. UW has quite a goalie!
There was a Byce playing in the game for the Badgers. That makes me feel old. His dad played for the Badgers and the Admirals. He also played for some team back east called the Bruins.
Hmmmmm ... Maybe you should've posted this in the OFFICIAL Wisconsin Badgers Hockey Thread Part II. It needs some love, too.
I guess that I will have to find it. I don't usually post on college hockey.
The more, the merrier.
