Really? I mean it's obvious where your heart is, and thats fine... but if you had to lay down some of that hard earned cash of yours, what would you say then? I believe MN is better than SCSU by a fair amount, however I also believe in the "overly loud annoying 80's hairband music blarring over the speakers and they think it's cool factor" blush.gif going on up there.... therefore my prediction 3-3 tie and Gophers 4-2 for three points and a successful road trip.

I hear you Buzzsaw, but being an alum of both SCSU and the U of MN, I have to tell you that I would take the atmosphere of a game in St. Cloud over Mariucci. Okay, I know I am opening up a can of worms here, but it just kills me when I go to Mariucci and see so few students and many corporate seats left open. It is definitely a great rink/arena, but it just lacks that college feel sometimes.

Anyways, I better get out my Guns n' Roses CD to brush up on the lyrics for Saturday night. grin.gif

I can't disagree, mariucci arena is an older crowd, but not old people... just not a bunch of drunk college kids acting like caged animals... I digress. I personally would way rather go to a game at mariucci then the way overrated arena in St. Cloud.... just get seats at either end and you can also participate the chants without being an indignant drunken college kid.

I agree but I did enjoy my days as a drunken college kid. grin.gif

My feelings exactly! I would put Mariucci right behind NoDak for best arena in the area. (Sidebar, if you haven't been to NoDak, make the trip --it's worth the drive) I also get a kick out of the Goph's coordinated chants.

But the Marriucci experience is just different from the smaller rinks. Those ethanol induced chants are a big part of the college game. Like last weekend, "Fra-zee's Was-ted"

And back to original topic. Though close, I see the Goph's sweep. Maybe a little bad blood from the final five semi last year?

I have not been to the SCSU arena, I can say that going to Mariucci for many gopher fans is like going to Lambeau to watch a game for packer fans. I can say I have been to UND several times (not the new arena) and that is a great atmosphere as well. I remember watching someone from the maroon and gold skate around a dead gopher and scoring a goal up there it was great.

I think the Gophers will get out the brooms this weekend.

I think we’re losing sight of the most important thing here. Since I’m married to Jill… and she is going to the game in St. Cloud Saturday night… I have to miss my Saturday night pick-up game because I have to stay home to take care of Mr. Hockey 2023! Anyone up for babysitting in the Lakeville area Saturday night? I have a 56” HD TV with the Center Ice package and CSTV for you to watch while the boy sleeps. It’s a pretty sweet set-up! Anyone? Anyone?

Definitely one of the worst games the Gophs have skated all year. I thought they were pretty flat last weekend, but tonight was worse. St. Cloud definitely should have put it away.

Two things about tonight's game: gopher's were not moving to the puck. A lot of reaching for around and hooking. They got beat several times tonight standing around. They had trouble breaking out of their zone when they were standing around.

The other thing was mental mistakes. Just about every defensemen tonight was making errors including vanelli. Okposo's gaff at the blue line coughed up a goal, as did Vanelli's penalty behind the net, resulting in a power play goal. Briggs must have had a brain fart tonight, as he let in some soft goals. He was not playing angles well, and what was with that last goal? tuck that elbow in man!

Gophers need to pick up the pace tomorrow night. When they skate and move the puck around, they are unstoppable. The CC series was a fine example of how well the Gophers play when they skate and move.

tomorrow's gonna be rough at the NSC; gophers better bring their A-game and skate like they've got something to prove.

unfortunately it was me, and I was right frown.gif

At least the gophs pulled their tails out of their rears and saved face this game. If they wouldn't have stepped up in the third and OT it would have been ugly. The Huskies looked really good tonight though. After that skuller shot, Frazee got beat stone cold on that third goal. Must have stung...

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes
