The Union Dutchmen knocked off the Minnesota Gophers in the national championship game on Saturday night and their improbable run through the Frozen Four tournament ended with their first title in school history.
Fans on twitter reacted to Union going from cinderella to national champions, with analysts praising the Dutchmen for winning with minimal NHL talent, fans touting their fresh win and even some North Dakota fans twisting the knife on Gophers fans.
Minnesota hockey team is all scholarship players going pro . Union College is all nerd engineering students . UC destroyed them .
