UND Sue Hockey

Recommended Posts

Wapiti

I realized long ago (Thank the good Lord) that UND was the most classless program in college hockey, but for the announcer to bring up the loss to Holy Cross that was 2 years ago by saying that "Holy Cross was off tonight" while giving WCHA scores was embarrassing for them! That's like the Gopher announcer ( and this is a bad example but the only one I can think of off hand) repeatedly reminding the crowd that the Sue haven't won the NCAA championship since 2000. UND...the WalMart of college hockey!

Who ever said I was a Gopher Fan?? A person doesn't have to even be a fan of anything to figure out that is bush league...not too hard to figure out is it? Just common sense man!

I'm not surprised by the response...classlessness does breed classlessness! Even some of the Sue fans I spoke with that were at the game were embarrassed by it. Get a clue!

Clearing throat; the Gophers did not get out-played. The game was decided by goaltending.

The Gophers totally out played the Sioux this weekend, of course it was at the Ralph where we always outplay the Sue! grin.gif

Speaking of frustration the Sioux fans and players a like must be concerned we're talking the pre-season #1 team with a bunch of NHL'ers who stayed in school to win a title and they have been nothing but atrocious.

The Sioux are struggling but I would not say there are "atrocious"..They are .500 in league play after playing the top teams in the league, and they have beed decent in non -conf games.. They spanked Michigan State and tied BC.. Lot's of season left.. It should be interesting.

I think you need to get a clue wapiti..Like I said before the announcer said the Holy Cross thing to get the crowd fired up..It has nothing to do with class.. Have you ever been to a game at the U? You want to talk about lack of class, go sit in the student section there.

So how frustrated are goopher fans then? I mean they were the #2 preseason ranked team and have more NHL'ers than NoDak does. Preseason rankings are a joke and good for nothing more than early trash talk among fans. These are two underachieving teams that need to step it up if they want to meet in the post season again for some great games.

GO SIOUX!!!

Ah gotta love the best rivalry in college hockey!!! grin.gif

I really like both the teams and I cheer for both when they aren't playing each other. When they do play I just want a good physical game.

I must say that I thought it was hillarious when the announcer said that. You could say that it is classless but still funny.

Has anyone who is a fan of either of these teams seen what the two Colorado teams are doing? I wonder if they play the US Junior Olimpic Hopefulls team mid way threw their season? Couldn't find the rankings for out of the top ten teams. Are either of these teams even in the top 25? Lets just call it a rebuilding year for both teams.

I would just hope that when I step into a Div. 1 hockey arena the announcer would at least know the actual name of the school he's referring to...not at the Ralph! When I was there earlier this year he kept saying a score for a team named "Boston"...said it several times...when what he was trying to spit out was Boston College? For a second there I actually thought the guy knew more than I did and was talking about the Bruins...nope! Laughable!

you want to talk about classless. isn't it true the gophers won't play the sioux in any other sport besides hockey because of the fighting sioux name. If you going to make a stand for something do it all the way not half @#~

Just to let you know some facts Spotter...the Gophers don't have a choice but to play the Sue in hockey! They are both in the WCHA and teams that are in the same conference play each other! For example, Boston...um I mean Boston College playing Boston...um I mean Boston University...they are both in Hockey East therefore they must play each other!

I can agree that the announcer for UND showed very little class in saying over the PA that Holy Cross was idle that weekend. It was a sweet moment two years ago but it is in the past. To lump years of UND hockey together and say the college has no class and the team has no class is a bit overboard. I can agree with you saying we had a moment in showing no class.

Redlake, I agree with everything you stated! Thanks for pointing out that my original comments weren't fair to the history of that program.

spotter, You must know that UND is Div 2 in all their other programs. Obviously the reason they do not play Minn in anything other than hockey. Also, why is everyone so high on UND hockey? They either get players from Minnesota or Canada. And yes I know ND has a small population and doesn't produce as many hockey players. It's just funny to see all that ND hockey pride based off Minnesota born or Canada born talent.

KMR85 you sound a little narrow minded when you type on the computer. Why the chip on your shoulder? Didn't the Potunly brothers bring something to Minnesota Gopher hockey? What does it matter where you were born? You are starting to sound like a right winger (no pun intended) North Dakota hockey fans could care less where a player is from. We have had some great Canadian, Minnesota boys and even some foreign players. Just exactly what are you trying to say?

I think all that North Dakota hockey pride makes you a little nervous.

How about that highly touted recruit Phil Kessel? I seem to recall all the Choker fans at the final five Chanting his name(before he had even worn the jersey no less) as the Sioux were destroying the Gophers hopes once again.

kmr85...using your senseless logic, why would you cheer for the Vikings, unless they were all MN born? Its called pride - you cheer for the team that represents your school. If MN can do it with 100% MN born players - that's great. ND can't do that and MN hasn't historically been 100% minnesotan year after year. To try to pooh-pooh the ND program based on not using ND players is totally hypocritical BS unless you can point to a program that's used exclusively in-state players. Good luck on that.

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4
    • LakeofthewoodsMN
      Weather forecast looks to be consistent starting Wednesday with average temps in the  mid 20's. Consistency typically good.  Right now anglers are working fish hard and putting fish in the pail. Electronics are playing a huge roll as some walleyes suspended as far as 10 feet below the ice. Most resorts are out in 31' with some in a touch shallower. More saugers in deep mud with walleyes shallower. Reefs to the west also productive with a few perch being pulled in as well. Rattle and flutter action spoons doing well. Gold, pink, and other glow colors best.  Pike already active in shallow water.  Auger extension needed if fishing on your own with 3+ feet of ice in most areas.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on lake through March 31st, walleyes open through April 14, pike all year.   Rainy River pushing out some bigger walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon.  Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle continues to put nice fish in the bucket. Walleyes and saugers in good numbers.  20-24' early and late, 26-30' during day.  In Ontario waters, crappies in deeper holes of 28-32' on light tackle set ups. Mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper, catch fish and move on.  Walleyes all over!  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?
    • Hoey
      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.  
    • Hoey
      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.  
    • Hoey
      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.  
    • Naturboy
      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry  
    • Sunset Lodge
      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
    • JBMasterAngler
      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.
    • Jarrid Houston
      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH
