Huskies/Gophers

58 posts in this topic

confused.gifWhat would you do for a ticket to either the Friday St Cloud home game or the Saturday Gopher home game? blush.gif Not sure about the Saturday game but the Friday game has been sold out for awhile now. tongue.gif And NO I don't have any available tickets! Best two teams in the country? Probably.

I would agree that these are probably the best two teams in ther country. Notre Dame being ranked # 1 is a complete joke. New hampshire can maybe be figured in the mix but that is about it.

Yeah, I personally have not seen Notre Dame play this year but I have a really high opinion of the WCHA. The best conference in college hockey, hands down, no comparison.

Notre Dame won't see the final four. I can garantee you that. Notre Dame will be hard pressed to beat Niagra or Bemidji State in the first round. They have a streghth of schedule that is worst than every team in the WCHA. How they are number 1 only sweet Mary knows.

The St. Cloud State Huskies are a great team. I keep repeating this and nobody from the Maroon and Gold will recognize this team as being every bit as good as the goofs. The goofers were nervous with the sioux coming to town......how about a team with a better goalie, faster defenseman, and more depth across their fowards?

I predict a Husky sweep this weekend on goaltending alone. This team is jacked to turn the corner and this weekend they will.

Mark it down.

Not so sure about a sweep but a home and home split wouldn't surprise me. SCS should have their legs goin after a one-point weekend against the Badgers last weekend. I was planning on going fishing this weekend so I may have to settle for the radio but we'll see how this storm plays out. It's going to be a great series nonetheless. I agree - Notre Dame isn't going anywhere. Go Huskies!

I think the gophernation has given pleanty of props to SCSU. They are a very solid team and have gone on a great run this year. I think it will be a great series. I am thinking split or 3 points for the good guys (gophs)

A sweep is entirely possible. I just don't think the Gophers will be on the "dust pan" end of it. smirk.gif

Sure to be a great series nonetheless.

Well I gotta say a Husky win would be sweet, however as a former on-ice official I have learned the importance of total impartiality.(Is that a word?) And as a goal judge that is of the utmost importance. We are not supposed to show any emotion what-so-ever, and seeing as I am being paid for my services I will adhere to the code of conduct. When I'm in the box behind the net, I have no interest in the outcome of the game. I must tell you that the only thing I worry about when I'm working a game is making sure the right call is made.

I live inbetween the cities and st. cloud. I have the same dilemma. being a long time gopher fan, I have to go with the huskies. they are a less known smaller school, and I hope they win it all this year. last I looked, 4-1 huskies.

Since "the streak" was ended, it really has been a boom or bust proposition for the Gophers. They are either really on or really off and last night was obvious that they fall into the latter of the categories. Coming down the stretch, that is a problem but hopefully they can work through it and keep their heads above water. Again, youth and/or lack of experience is going to prove to be an issue.

I was at the game on Friday and it was great. I only called Hockey Guy once and he said the huskies simply outplayed the gophers. Hockeyguy is a gophers fan first, but he stills likes the huskies having graduated from SCSU.

It should be an interesting game tonight. The gophers will be looking for a win at all costs.

The better team won this series out played and out COACHED.

Nice job by Lucia for second year in row he has turned the best team in the country into a mediocre team down the stretch.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.  
    • mnfathead
      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect
    • ZachD
      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
