The Prediction

     This from Sioux on the Saturday-Sunday series at the DECC between Minnesota Duluth and North Dakota:
     Since losing to Minnesota Duluth 4-2 on Nov. 24, North Dakota has gone 15-4-1, including 12-3-1 in the conference and 10-2 at home. North Dakota brings a 13 game unbeaten string (12-0-1) to Duluth, the longest current streak in Division I.
     UMD, on the other hand, has won only six games since earning a split at North Dakota, going 6-9-4 to bring its season record to 12-12-6 (8-11-5 WCHA). The Bulldogs were swept at home by Colorado College last weekend, going scoreless in the two games. UMD is 2-4-2 in their last eight games at home after opening the season 4-0-3 at the DECC.
     North Dakota has had the better of the results between the two teams recently, going 8-1-1 against Duluth in the past 10 games.
The Prediction
     North Dakota has the top-end talent and an edge in special teams situations that should translate into two victories, but the Bulldogs are smarting after being shut out twice at home last weekend and will find a way to earn at least one point. North Dakota 4-1, 2-2 tie.

  1. Is this some way of trying to fire up the Bulldogs? Why don’t you show your prediction for the games rather than what the Sioux Blog has to say?

  2. Your putting too much into a FAN web site.
    Mabye you should discuss how your team lack scoring and maybe blame the coach…

  3. Tim-

    Maybe he won’t give a prediction because he also covers the team for the Duluth News Tribune and most journalists don’t give predictions like that. People who only do blogs do, but usually not journalists.

    And quite the creative response Bert- we all know everything was caused by our coach. Nevermind the half dozen open nets we missed Friday night and the way the scores were not the best indication of how the games were. But you would only know that if you saw them

  4. What I meant was I have noticed the fire Sandy has been making a comback again with Bull Dog fans.

  5. Oh ok…sorry. I’m not in the camp of blame everything on Sandy- the people who do never say anything positive about the coaching when they do well, only negative things when they lose.

  6. So, just asking guys, who DO you blame for 7 bad years out of 8?
    Did we just run up against a string of hot goalies?
    Players missing open nets evergy game?
    Bad refs?
    Lack of chemistry? Lask of hustle?
    Scot was brought in to turn a program around and it is going in the OPPOSITE direction. His record his first eight years is WORSE than Sertich’s record his last 8 years.
    How is that, in any way, turning a program around?
    UMD got the wrong ND assistant.
    It’s time NOT to accept mediocrity any more.
