I told you all not to get excited. I told you that the Gophers were going to win this series. But no. You all yelled at me, called me a non-Sioux fan. Told me I need to be more excited. Well here's why I wasn't, Sioux fans. Because it's not over until it's over. You all overlooked the Gophers. Every one of you. You all let your hatred of that program cloud your judgment and assumed the Sioux would stomp them both nights. Stomp them the first night they did. But look who came roaring back tonight. Look who said HEY! We're not done yet!
We're going to a 3rd game tomorrow. And as far as I'm concerned, the season is on the line for both teams. UND loses, they are done. Minnesota loses, they are done. I don't care that UND is currently 5th in the pairwise. They will plummet to 8th or 9th after tonight. And if they lose tomorrow, well, probably 14th. And since two CHA teams are going to be in the big dance, you are not safe unless you are in the top 13.
Don't read my blog if you don't want to hear the truth. But reality is, the Sioux have their backs against the wall. The Gophers...not so much now.
