Gopher/Sioux time...again!

You can go back and read my previous posts on the Gopher/Sioux series. I don't feel the need to elaborate. We all know this series is big. Regardless of where each team is in the polls or the standings, both teams will come out guns blazing this weekend and it will certainly be a good series.

Instead, what am I looking for this weekend? Well, there's a few things...

1. Gregoire to continue to shine
He scored 4 goals over the weekend against Mankato and should continue to have a big series

2. Kristo to light it up
Playing in his backyard should help him find extra motivation to score

3. A shutout from Eidsness
Minnesota has been piling the shots up on their opponents but have been unable to score many goals. If Eids can put up a donut against Minnesota, that should just crush their spirits.

Also, on a somber note, Chay Genoway is still struggling and will most likely be redshirted this season...

Big weekend Sioux fans!

Just playing devil's advocate; If there's any chance for Genoway to play in the playoffs, what would be the motivation for red shirting him? I'm sure he's excited to move on and play at the next level. Speaking totally out of my ass since I have no actual knowledge, but he more than likely will graduate this year, so why stick around? Other than the obvious at another run at a title in 2011.

you're talking about CHAY right? he'll stick around.

the motivation to play or not play him I think lies on his entire future. Since we're talking about his head, we're talking about his entire life. I'm sure they are doing everything to make sure that he is 100% before he plays.

Obviously he won't come back until he's recovered from the concussion. I was only saying if he wakes up one February morning ready to play, why wouldn't he? Even if it's in March, he won't redshirt unless something catastrophic has happened to the Sioux's season by then.
