At the halfway point of the NCAA Skiing Championships DU remains in 7th place. With two days of competition left, Denver has 232.5 points. Vermont has the team lead after two days with 396 points. Utah (372), Colorado (359), Dartmouth (297), Alaska Anchorage (271) and host Montana State (264.5) placed ahead of DU.

Is it going to be a crimson red out or a cardinal red out?

Going with recent history and historic pathetic home ice support, I'm going with a cardinal red out.

More jersey pumping on their own ice?

Nice fans you got there at DU.

I'm sure Sconnie fans are camping out in front of Magness today to watch the 10th place Badgers.

Camping out?

Walk up to the ticket window 2 minutes before the game and sit where ever you like is more realistic.

Serioulsy DU fans, I think Sullivan Arena is the only place where I see more empty seats on tv.

DU is top 10 in college hockey in attendance and top 10 in percentage of capacity.

Its been that way every year for over a decade since Magness Arena opened.

You realize that those numbers do not count asses in the seats.

You can be "sold out" and have your season ticket holders never attend a game, which apparently happens quite often at Magness.

Face the facts, the DU fans are fair weather at best.

I'm still betting on a cardinal out. Go Bucky!

Kinda sad, a lone Cheesehead trying to talk smack. I just can't summon the energy to respond in kind.

Go DU, take care of biz tonight. Sounds like we need to at least advance to the Final Five to get a bid. So hopefully the boyz will be on their game tonight.

Bucky gonna fucky your lives up? Really?

Someone needs to pay for this guy to go to troll school.

DU/CC Dad said...

The USCHO pundits are split on who is gonna win this weekend. Bucky is on a roll now and historically kick our butt at playoff time (12-1). I hope our boys are up for some playoff hockey this weekend...otherwise, they're gonna be playing golf after this weekend. Go DU!!!

DU choke against a weaker opponent? Never happens.

Sad to say that old p was one of those that thought that the cheeseheads would be victorious.

Zucker's bags are already packed for Houston.

Shore will mull around for a week or two and then head off to San Antonio.

Goon said...

Yeah I don't see Bucky winning this series, this weekend.

Damn, UW is 12-1 vs us in playoffs??? That's ridiculous. But then again, we have about the same record against them at the Kohl Center...equally ridiculous.

That playoff record is a little scary, but it's all about who is playing best right now. And I'm not sure who is! I guess we'll see. How's that for confidence???

Puck old pio! GO DU!!!!!

Let's not assume we're dealing with a cheesehead here. More likely it's Skunkstool, our CC pal who has posted here using at least three aliases.

If Wisconsin comes out and plays physical DU is done there is only a couple players who can play physical and we know who they are and its not the draft picks because they always play the outside game when we play physical teams as it showed against UND,Wisconsin and CC. As stated before if the games are physical the draft picks will be thinking of when they can leave for their NHL teams if they're not already.

mexico said...

It's interesting that old dirty pio of all people is referring to me as a pal.

Thanks, but no thanks buddy.

You people all need to remember that DU has not been Swept all year. They have lost one, tied one but have not been completely swept! Have some faith in our boys and ignore the people who have nothing better to do then raid their opponents blogs...sounds like they need jobs or a hobby.

You don't know hockey if you think it is totally normal to jersey pump in own barn. Go Badgers!!! Was blown away when I watched you guys on NBC against UND. Sioux fans totally showed you up.

Anonymous said...

As for attendance figures...thats how many tickets are sold...not how many of you losers actually show up to the game. Games against UND were sold out and there were a ton empties. Pathetic. as for 10th place Wisconsin....they will show show up to watch their 10th place team. You won't show up to watch your 3rd place team.

You turds who keep chirping about jersy pumping won't be saying much after Bucky gets smoked in 2 games here. You dimwits have 2 games of your season left. DU will be on to bigger and better things. Keep woofin, though.

Anonymous said...

Seriously! What is wrong with you people...do you have nothing better to do with your life then stop by other people's blogs and act like Classless idiots...you fit right in with the UND fans.

old pio said...

I see we're attracting an elite group of trolls: ". . .there IS only a couple of players." Nice going, dimwit.

mexico said...

I was jersey pumping at Magness after the game back in February. Some douche bag tried to pick a fight with me.

Anonymous said...

Love the attendance chirping. Do they give banners for crowds? Wins and loses is all that matters.

mexico said...

@ anon 5:16

We have an attendance banner hanging at the CSWA. It's mixed in with all of the participation banners so you probably never noticed it.

There is only one troll here masquerading as several people. Not sure why DG is allowing anonymous posting. But it's his blog, so whatever.

I bet a lot more people show up at Madness to watch hockey this weekend than at the Kohl Center.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, no chit, when you finish 10th your barn is pretty empty come playoff time.

I hope Wisconsin enjoys finishing next to last in the Big Ten every year.

What is the picture like when viewing a game on PioneerVision?

Anonymous said...

The Pioneer vision picture is decent ... I haven't had any problems .. and for the price, 9 bucks for a month subscription, you get tonight and tomorrow's (and let's hope we don't need Sunday) games .. so that's not a bad deal. got tix for tonight, but I may shell out the nine for tomorrow ...

Anonymous said...

There were about 200 Badger fans in the house tonight, and about 4,000 Pio fans. Maybe 300 students - not bad considering final exams are just days away.

After the 1st game, I'm sure I heard Old p say "thank-you Sir may I have another" Old p will be spanking it again tonight for game 3.
