I already admitted it in my blog yesterday, but I'll say it again. I WAS WRONG!
Sioux fans all over the nation are celebrating what is definitely the biggest sweep of the season, and a lot of people are pointing to yet another 2nd half surge. I'm not ready to go there quite yet, but let's discuss this weekend, shall we?
Was the illness of Coach Lucia weighing on the Gopher squad? It very well could have been, and in all honesty, I would be understanding. Are the young guys getting tired? It's a possibility, one that I mentioned at the beginning of the season as a reason the Gophers would struggle. Did the Gophers come up to Grand Forks thinking it would just be a Sioux team that would roll over? I'm sure they didn't think the Sioux would destroy them, but probably thought it would still be an easy game.
Regardless of the whys, the results of the games are what make me happy as a Sioux fan this weekend. It's well played games like that that make me really appreciate being a solid fan of the University of North Dakota hockey program. They need to keep the momentum going and good things will happen.
