North Dakota Fans Help Serratore Scout Gophers
by Theresa Spisak
Being the first service academy to make the NCAAs, Air Force coach Frank Serratore has been receiving many e-mails from Air Force fans and alumni. However, he's also gotten e-mails from a few other places as a result of the Falcons' feel-good story.
"Another thing that makes you feel good is the amount of hockey fans, the Avalanche fans that have e-mailed me, the CC fans that have e-mailed me, the DU fans that have e-mailed, I mean it's just great to know — everybody's pulling for us," he said.
"I'm sure if CC was in, Scott [Owens] wouldn't be getting letters from DU fans and if DU was in, George [Gwozdecky] wouldn't be getting them from CC fans."
Since his team is playing the Gophers, he's also gotten some e-mails from admitted Gopher-haters — North Dakota fans.
"I got a scouting report from one of them," he said, and he described the end of one particularly salty e-mail as being "and when you win, I'll send you my Holy Cross t-shirt."
