gophers rivarly

26 posts in this topic

I have a question for all you Gopher fans. It seems that Minnesota is the biggest draw on the road. They have big rivaries with just about every WCHA team. What series do you look forward to every year?

In order.

NoDak....

St. Cloud ST.

Wisconsin.

And both Michigan and Michigan State!

North Dakota by far for me.

Then Wisconsin and Michigan (I still get sick when I see that Mike Legg goal).

After that I would say the other Minnesota D1 schools depending on who has the hot team that year.

I still remember watching that goal on tv. I think the refs should have called travelling on that one. I don't know if it's the best goal in college hockey, but it's definitely up there as one of the craziest. Amazing.

North Dakota is the top rival by far. (All started after being at the Holy Cross game.....I don't wanna talk about it)

Wisconsin is next.

Then probably all three of the Minnesota teams in the WCHA.

St. Cloud State.

(I live here, but it is a huge rivalry here because the schools are so close to each other. A LOT of gopher fans show up here and the crowds get pretty rowdy.)

North Dakota first as their roster is usually Minnesota kids and Canadians. Wisconsin second and everybody else just wants to be there rival.

No Dak, the population doubles when the gophers come to town. Then the huskies and Wisconsin.

Hmmm?

Where is Beltrami county again?

Just for fun I did an internet search for Beltrami County and this picture came up. Apparently this is entertainment at its finest in Beltrami County. Hey Red Lake, how excited would you "Beltramis" get if we gave you an old tire to push around? grin

Hey now wait a minute...in defense of where Red resides(I can't believe I just typed that)I was once a resident of beautiful Beltrami County and would move back there if things worked out like that! It is an absolutely fantastic place to be if you are into the outdoors! So Red, I stand corrected from earlier thoughts, I bet that's something you and I can both agree on? Even though that picture is funny as heck!

Hey now. This is a beautiful place. Take nothing away from pushing a tire around. There are plenty of people around here who do that. Quite a few "brush apes" who live in trailor houses with jacked up 4x4 under the lean-to.

I love the photo. I hope that isn't anyone I know. That would suck.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
