  1. Will Minnesota fans root for Michigan? Which is greater? Their hatred of North Dakota or support for WCHA teams? I say root for North Dakota and Duluth. All WCHA FINAL!

    • The only Minnesota fan said he will be cheering against North Dakota. Cheering for your conference is a truly pointless and backwards endeavor: “Well since I’m worse than [hated rival from same conference], I will subsequently pour heaping amounts of salt in my wound and cheer for them to win a national title so they can then proceed to rub it in my face for the rest of time” Why would you do that to yourself?
      As a Michigan fan, I loved (loved loved) seeing Miami choke because I don’t like them and it’s awesome to see them suffer

    • Agreed. In a pretend season where the gophers are the worst team in the country (i mean country not tournament) but somehow get an autobid by winning the WCHA tournament . . . aaaaand the winner of the gophers and the toughest team in the tournament are playing us: I’m still cheering against the gophers

  2. the ONLY reason a lot has been made of Michigan’s so-called “underdog” status is that Red Berenson and his players have gone out of their way to make it known that’s what they are. WELL guess what…. this Sioux fan doesn’t buy that sandbagging garbage for one second. There are no underdogs in this matchup Michigan.

    • I agree, Michigan is using this to try throw the Sioux off their game by inflating their heads. Nice try, they’re unbeaten in 15 games because of their focus and ability not to look past opponents. Michigan preaching their underdog role won’t change that.

  3. No way the Gopher fans cheer for the Sioux. I would not be caught dead cheering for the Gophers. The Gophers could be playing against a team of aliens for the cure for aids and I’d cheer against them. I hope Gopher fans show up and boo the Sioux. One of the best things about college hockey is the atmosphere during a rivalry. Go Sioux!!

  4. The Fighting Sioux want you to know something, Wolverines. They are not afraid of you! They WILL NOT underestimate you. The Fighting Sioux are here to win #8.

  5. Providence needs a coach whose recruiting budget rivals that of the other Hockey East schools, but then if they had that Coach Army would have turned this team around. That said, one of the most historic moments tying college player to team is when Chris Terreri led PVD to their inaugural HE Tourney championship over BU An original HE member, Hockey East is at its best when PVD is competitive. That said, PVD needs to follow the model of a UNH or a UVM in order to become competitive. First, hire a Coach with strong RI ties – preferably PC & NHL – but a name that makes people think Providence Hockey, whether it be a brother of or a father of one of the two recently graduated Cavanaghs of Toll Gate, or even outside the box thinkng and bring in a SARAH DE COSTA type as if not head Coach then assistant head coach. Next, they cannot let a single prospect from RI get out of their grasp. Whether that means offering the guy when others say he needs a season in the EJHL or USHL, PVD needs to sign RI prep player of the year every year. Next, and this is where I say follow UNH & UVM- each of those schools seem to get any player they want from the Green Mountain team and the NH Monarchs in the EJHL. So too should be the same with the South Shore participant in the EJHL. One final thing, PC is still just a notch below BC & Notre Dame for any players who wanna play Catholic College hockey. Providence needs to focus on any player that BC & ND just pass on offering, because chances are many will make outstanding D1 players, and would rather from history play elite hockey at the 3rd most prominent Catholic Program than one of 50-something others that dont teach the same values that ND and BC teach.

    • You are right, of course. I hit the two hyphens (and created a lovely em dash) while missing that middle “3” altogether. The 1965 note shows you how willing the Wolverines are to travel.
