Dislike

I know that CC fans and teams are universally despised by the DU faithful, but is that really where it ends? I've been doing some digging into the program lately, and I'm wondering...

Does anyone actually like CC?

Their coaches don't.
Former UMTC assistant coach Mike Guentzel left CC for the USHL after just one undistinguised season under Scott Owens.

Their recruits don't.
First round draft pick John Moore elected not to come to CC mere weeks before he was slated to show up on campus. Recruit Colton St. Clair also bolted for UND.

Their goalies don't.
Richard Bachmann split after a less-than-impressive (relative to his freshman year) season, and freshman Hudson Stremmel didn't want to play second banana to fellow first-year Joe Howe. This gives hope to The Worst WCHA Fantasy Hockey Team Ever, whose only goalie (and first round draft pick!) is Tyler O'Brien.

Their administration doesn't.
CC players are constantly running afoul of the administration. However, if they didn't try to have three-ways with underage girls or dress up in blackface, maybe that would not be such a problem.

Their fans don't.
7 UMD fans outcheered the entire arena last year. I don't think they have a student fanbase. No one shows up in school colors, and in every crowd shot, everyone looks bored!

Their A/V staff doesn't.
They would rather broadcast "Floating Tiger Head" when play is underway than show their team.

Their bloggers don't.
They
never post. Or quit, like my buddy CCH.

Their mascot doesn't.
There are most likely less than 2000 tigers (of all subspecies!) left in the wild. Stupid horrible awful people poaching them? Or just shame at their CC (and also Detroit) association?

Really, who's left? Randy May?

Randy May quit following them as well. His business was going belly up and his wife made him give up the season tickets and the website.

Good point you never see their fans at the Final Five either.

DU fans have been saying it for years:
