People get so high on this team when we win and then we lose a game and suddenly we are mediocre.

Let’s see how tomorrow shakes out and how we respond before throwing in the towel on the season, eh? ;)

BETTER DEAD THAN RED!

Have you ever wondered over to the Mail carriers website? Their fans are like 10 year olds.

We will see how they come out of this. It wasn’t our best game and Wisconsin is going to exploit any weakness. If the D gets better after this series, not the only issue, but once they all play better in our end the offense seems to take care of itself.
I’m all for a good rivalry and Wisconsin came to play this weekend.

Hopefully a trend isn't starting (like in football), where Wisconsin makes us their bitch.

Just win tonight.
Would have loved 3 of 4 from WI, but a split is ok.

I really love that we can make this available to all of you. There are nights when I am tired and do not feel like putting this together.
I hear you there ( especially when the feeling is that you haven't overcome their mantra - "They haven't played us yet" - it's no fun having to say "We haven't played them yet" after every first game . . . . You gotta hope that that is going to change because the final game with them will be one and done . . . .

I try to erase a game like that from the DVR almost before it's over in the waning second . . . and, often, don't even take the time to update the countdown page ( which I will do after reading the rest of the comments here . . . )
But the fact that the U makes the raw video available to the media is great. It allows me to quickly edit it and post it for all of you. A bit different than the live video via Twitter we used to do. But I still love it. And because of the U making this available to us, I can make it available to all of you.

It sucks that GPL is not considered "essential media" to be able to be AT Mariucci Arena this season. But I am so glad that we can bring this kind of content to you.
Really appreciate your love of the game!

Go Gophers!!

It's like clockwork. There are a handful of "fans" that ALWAYS look for a chance to look at the negative, instead of enjoying the ride. I really think they find glee when the Gophers struggle so they can rush to their keyboard. Luckily it took 19 games for the sky to fall this year. I wish the Gophers would win every game 15-0, but the reality is that isn't going to happen. I'm all for people who come here with constructive criticism and pointing out areas that the team can improve on and calling players and coaches out, but the titanic mentality of some make me chuckle. :M:

For the Gophers to win tonight they need to--
1. Watch for Caufield to leave the zone early to create breakaways. The best way to do this is to make him play defense in his own zone.
2. Need to generate more SOG and create rebounds, and create shots that don't hit BADgers in the shins.
3. Score first and control the tempo.

I suspect that tBob lit a fire under them at the morning skate, and I suspect they will come out and play much better tonight.

I thought they played really well in the fist but nothing gives a team hope faster than killing off a 5X3 PP and last night proved to be no exception.
Couple that with the the BADgers ability to block shots and the Gophers started getting cute looking for the perfect goal. Sprinkle in a few other missed golden chances and....well.....hoping they play greasier tonight.

That's the way I saw it. Even after WI got that early goal Minnesota had the edge in play. And, yes, MN was way to patient about getting the puck to the net last night. It felt like WI was willing to play Minnesota's game, but the blocked shots and MN's failure to release the puck sealed their fate.

I am, for one, pretty happy to go into weekends expecting/hoping for a Gopher sweep rather than hoping for a Gopher win.

Let's go get the win tonight!

Agreed. Not all goals are going to be SportsCenter worthy. They all count the same!

One thing is I don't think Caufield has been leaving the zone too often this year -- he's been one of the players generating the turnovers.

They do need to create more rebounds and avoid shin pads -- make plays that result in scoring chances.

The difference in how these teams play special teams so far is pretty vast. Gophers don’t challenge them at all on the PP and do little to break down their PK structure. The exact opposite is true on the other end when BADgers have a PP.

Lets see what the Gophers are made of in the second. The 1st was so helter skelter because of the 5 min PP, followed by the other BADger PP. Take a deep breath and regroup. Hold them off the scoreboard, and chip away.

Ugly to take those penalties though since we've been so well disciplined all season long and now we have 17 minutes in just one period.

If Wisconsin-Madison is the state's most prestigious university and the state itself is known as The Dairy State, does that mean UW is Bovine University?

Lets see what the Gophers are made of in the second. The 1st was so helter skelter because of the 5 min PP, followed by the other BADger PP. Take a deep breath and regroup. Hold them off the scoreboard, and chip away.

The BADgers just look better than us in every facet of the game. I missed the goals four and 5. How bad were they?

I thought splitting in Madison and getting swept by Notre Dame was going to be a wake up call and that'd be the turn around they need. I thought we would probably split this weekend. I did not think this would happen. This is absolutely embarrassing. Hopefully they can bounce back next weekend but this is not helping our case that we can only beat poor or mid-level teams
