Last night the North Dakota Fighting Sioux topped the Minnesota Golden Gophers to improve their record to 19-1-3. Last year, the Sioux finished a disappointing 16-19-2. After the game, UND coach Dean Blais said: "Last year, we would have lost this game." Pause, and then the punchline: "And many more."
I'm heading down to Mariucci Arena for tonight's Sioux vs. Gophers rematch. Afterwards, I'll cruise over to the Acme Comedy Company and hopefully catch Coach Blais's act.
