As hordes of Bemidji State University men's hockey fans - both longtime and come-lately - sing "Go Bemidji Beavers; Go you Green and White" Thursday, Jared and Penny Echternach will be singing "Love and honor to Miami, our college old and grand."


"I don't want to be run out of town, but we love Miami," said Penny.

"I can't wait 'til Thursday," said Jared. "It's so great for both programs, both their first trips to the Frozen Four."
