But today, Minnesota is the
youngest team in the WCHA, a squad
that lacks the experience and game
savvy of teams such as North Dakota
and Colorado College, and for the
second straight season is likely to fin-
ish in the lower half of the conference.
The Gophers used to be the darlings
of the state -- "Minnesota's Pride on
Ice." But now, the program is feeling
the heat from critics in the media and
the stands like never before. Why?
"We never lost until last year,"
Woog said. "Three years ago, we
shared the (WCHA) title. So we've
got to get back up there, and some of
the critics will change their tunes.
"(The criticism) is not fun. But it's
supposed to be like a marriage. Just
do your part and do the best you can."
If that's really the case, perhaps
Minnesota could use some marriage
counseling, because the program
seems to be on the rocks.
Woog seems unsure of the talent in
the USHL, but he does admit that
Minnesota will explore its recruiting
options in the junior league more
often in the future, primarily because
the youthful Gophers are more green
"We know we have to get older,"
Woog said. "We're the youngest team
in the league, not only in age but also
in fewest games played. And that has
added up because of the juniors."
But the fact remains that many of
the best players in Minnesota are not
going to the University.
Therefore, is a change in order?
"(Former Gopher) Neal Broten said
on (Mark) Rosen's show that I should
continue recruiting the same way,"
Woog said. "There's an NHLer. But
then the issue is why aren't we getting
the best ones?"
Would having a non-Minnesotan on
the team seem strange, after so many
years without one? Certainly. The first
non-Minnesotan to cross into the state
in about 15 years would have to be

more than just physically tough, but
mentally rock solid. He would sud-
denly become the most scrutinized
man in the state.
But is the tradition so important
that it should not be broken? Or is
enough enough, and is it time to break
ranks and find the great non-
Minnesotan hope? "The tradition has
really been spun by me," Woog said.
"It's a self-imposed situation, and it
doesn't have to be that way. We had a
feeling that we can win it, and we
were close to it with Minnesota play-
ers for a number of years. Now I think
it's an issue that we have to get back to
the level where we can compete for

LOGAN, Utah (U-WIRE) - When

The best way to accomplish all three
goals is to face a high-profile team in a

The strategy must be working.

Following legendary coach John
Mariucci's lead, Woog recruits only
players from Minnesota to play for the
Gophers. The team has been success-

consecutive trips to the NCAA
Tournament (a streak that ended last
season) and producing a pair of
