With losing a very close game to the the #2 team in October? Guilty.
So used to being the 4th best team in the state and not even being mad IMMEDIATELY after the game. They now find themselves going into a tough away arena to salvage a split.

Age comparisons can be skewed by class distribution. Thought this would be interesting to check.

SCSU 13

Players with three years of juniors post HS grad:

Re: #2 St Cloud vs #4 Gophers Oct 15 & 16

I will give up a loss to Nebraska in a heartbeat to sweep St Cloud. One of my best friends from high school is a Husker, from a family of Huskers, and I would much rather have to hear it from them than my friends who are St Cloud fans. I’m also going to the game in St Cloud and I’m not really looki...

For Casey he was already rated highly and there wasn’t a benefit to stay. Even if another year playing D1 would help, where is the better talent to train with? It’s a no brainer.
Anyone with eyes could see Mittelstadt should not have gone after one year.

Re: Local players in the pros

Ranta makes the 23 man roster of a Stanley Cup favorite Avs.

THAT is why you stay three years if you are not dominating like Caufield/Holloway/Pinto/Boldy. The extra year made a huge difference for him.

Re: NCAA Hockey 2021-2022 Season

Jeezuz why are you even a fan? You almost seem happy to note he was wrong about the rankings and does anyone else here care that ND got a highly prized recruit? I was not calling out that he was wrong because you would actually find I had also predicted it wrong. Regarding ND getting a highly prize...

Re: NCAA Hockey 2021-2022 Season

I don’t understand how they can see game after game of empty seats and then go into the office on Monday and tell each other that they’re doing enough. When the program keeps losing money, their jobs aren't as safe either. That's the sad reality. What is surely already a thin staff would likely see...

Re: NCAA Hockey 2021-2022 Season

The pricing on a lot of these games is insane. I can go to Ticketmaster right now and get 2 tickets for the Wild vs Dallas for the same $70 they're asking for a single Zone 1 ticket for SCSU/UMD/Michigan/WisconSIN. The reason they have tiered pricing on single game tickets is to protect the dwindli...

Re: NCAA Hockey 2021-2022 Season

1/26/2019 More than 8K in the arena against wisconsin. Great atmosphere. Why was it so full? Honored the 79 team but also importantly retro pricing at the concessions. People LOVED that, including me. Immediately after that I said the pricing should be that way every game. It's college hockey, not t...

Re: NCAA Hockey 2021-2022 Season

This being the case, rather than complaining about something that simply won't happen, we should be focusing on getting the U to change the things that they can actually accomplish on their own. I'm all ears for these. Collective brainstorming. I can tell you shrinking the ice will be huge for thos...

Re: NCAA Hockey 2021-2022 Season

I don't think there is anything to "fix" that warrants blowing up half of college hockey to make one person in Minnesota happy. Ask the NCHC fans if they'd like to have UMN and uw. Ask all those fans that ditched the U if it's an improvement for them. You think Michigan fans gained a lot from havin...

Re: NCAA Hockey 2021-2022 Season

One thing I’ve always thought of is a sort of Big Ten vs NCHC challenge (similar to the Big Ten/ACC basketball one). Over the course of 3-4 series in October most likely. Would that not be feasible? Anything is feasible if you want to make it happen. I don't think that would move the needle much. W...

Re: Restaurant

Having said that, from a price/convenience standpoint, I'm probably more likely to get something from Taco Bell anyway. And it's been many years since I did that, even. Taco Bell went downhill massively over the past couple years. Menu is a mess and they got rid of a ton of high value favorites. Ah...
