The Gophers men’s hockey team has to win Thursday before it can advance to the championship round of the NCAA Frozen Four. However, there have still been anticipatory warnings for the possibility of potential riots in the event of a Gophers win on Saturday.
The national championship wins of 2002 and 2003 sparked riots in the streets of Minneapolis. Rioters overturned cars, started fires and looted stores.
The 2003 riots alone resulted in 27 arrests.
Now that the Gophers have another shot at a national title, the University of Minnesota is making preparations for another potential riot.
Bahaha. Yea, right. Good luck.
