Minnesota Athletics Taking Submissions for Mariucci Arena Student Section Name
The University of Minnesota is now taking submissions to name the student section at Mariucci Arena for men's hockey games. The 10,000-seat facility has been called the "best venue in college hockey" by Sports Illustrated, and has hosted three NCAA Regional competitions, two NCAA Women's Frozen Fours and numerous other national and international hockey and skating events.
However, the imposing brick building is best known for being home to the Minnesota men's hockey team and its adoring fans. No fan group is more important to the atmosphere and spirit of the building than the student section. More than 1,000 Minnesota students join the band in sections 13 and 14 - behind the goal Minnesota attacks twice - to cheer on their beloved Gophers every home stand.
The student section has gone nameless until now. Gopher fans are encouraged to submit names for the student section at firstname.lastname@example.org and submissions will be received from Sept. 3-15. Students will then be able to vote on the top-four entries through a unique voting system. Student voting will take place from Sept. 17-24 and the new name of the Mariucci Arena student section will be unveiled Friday, Oct. 8 when Minnesota opens the 2010-11 season at home against Massachusetts.

I suppose I didn't have to add back the photo from the e-mail, but I couldn't resist after seeing that fan in red with such an unhappy expression during what looks like the our 6-1 win over the Badgers.
