Congrats to the Minnesota Golden Gophers for making their 20th Frozen Four!

Oddly enough, this year's Frozen Four is in Tampa, FL, in two weeks.

The Frozen Four is an awesome event...maybe one of these days KC could get one in the Sprint Center!


For all of you Golden Gophers out there:

Ski-U-Mah!!!!!!

Congrats to the Gophers. I grew up in Grand Forks and I actually hate Sioux hockey. People take it way to fucking seriously.

Games are fun as hell, don't get me wrong, but they haven't won a championship since 2001. That's gotta suck.

I'll be rooting for the Gophers.

I wish I had gotten into hockey more quickly after I moved out here so that I would have been motivated to go to the 2008 Frozen Four. I bet it's a hell of a good time.

Yeah, if Tampa could host it, surely KC could (the Ice Breaker tourney is in KC this October, which is kind of random).

I think KC would do a great job hosting it. A team from North Dakota, MN, or WI is almost always in the Frozen Four, and hockey fans travel well from the east coast as well.

I remember when the Gophers won in 2002 at Xcel in St. Paul. It was nuts, and an awesome sports weekend.

College hockey is one of the few things I miss about living up north. Don't get many games down here in KC, so I am glad ESPNU is covering the tournament.

That is indeed a event that KC and the Sprint Center should get. It is in a central location that is still pretty darn close to those in the Upper Midwest.

I get to watch college hockey a fair amount with the sports package I have.

Hockey at this level is awesome to watch.

This would be a great event for Kansas City. College hockey fans can be very crazy.

No Ferris or Union fans on here? :D

I'll be cheering on the Gophers.

Apparently...Mizzou does have a hockey team, and they won the MACHA title.

Apparently the MACHA does not have an auto bid to the NCAA tourney though, LOL. Might not even be considered Division 1.

Union is an interesting study. Apparently they offer no scholarships for athletics, and have not had a high level of success until the past couple of years.

Where exactly is Union?

I know the Frozen Four is Union, Ferris State, Minnesota and Boston College.

I think it's considered DII. I think Turner Gill now coaches KU's hockey team... they lost to Missouri 14-3 a couple of months ago.

Boston College wins and gets the last Frozen Four spot...they play the Gophers. BC is the #1 team in college hockey and has won 17 in a row. Looks like the Gophers will be a significant underdog.

Ferris State down 2-1 against BC in the 2nd.

BC was just too much for everyone. They smoked the Gophers the other day, and won their last 18 games en route to the national title. It was good to the see the Gophers back in the frozen four though, they had been absent from any tourney success the last four or five years.
