    In your opinion, what is different in the way that OSU is playing now versus earlier? Part of the perception may be that UND, UW, and UMD all started very slowly, and I think that each is a far better club now than in the first couple of months.

    Speaking only for myself, I'm starting to be won over by this theory. First, I don't think OSU is playing worse or even differently than earlier in the season. Second, based on direct observation, I'd say that:

    January UMD > November Wisconsin

    Further, the comparison isn't particularly close. However, based on numerous posts by various posters, it also appears that:

    January Wisconsin > November Wisconsin.

    And the comparison isn't particularly close. So I guess the Buckeyes need to take it up a notch or two if they want to continue to contend for home ice. That makes more sense to me than idea that the Buckeyes are in some sort of slump.



    The Unofficial Three Stars for Saturday's game will be up before the end of the weekend. But I gotta give it up for tonight and get some sleep.

    This.

    Other teams have gotten better as the season has gone on and have stepped it up. The Buckeyes need to do the same, rather than 'getting back to the way they were playing earlier this season' as I wrongly stated earlier. It needs to start next weekend at Bemidji. Otherwise, we're looking at slipping into the fifth spot and hitting the road for the first round.

    Anxiously awaiting your three stars from yesterday's game! I had other plans and didn't make it to this weekend's games.

    The Three Stars are now up on the WCHA thread. Sorry about the delay. But at least for me, 4 home games in less than 36 hours is a full load.

    I grew up in Ann Arbor. I'm not sure you'd really appreciate what I'd consider an enjoyable visit to Columbus.

    You left waaay to much to the imagination. In my mind's eye, I now have you committing all kinds of unspeakable criminal offenses. I'm sure the truth is a little tamer.

    I just have enough self-restraint to understand that I'll never have a truly enjoyable trip to Columbus. A couple of Gopher wins would be nice, though.

    Well, if you come to town determined to have a bad time, of course you will. I suppose that's in line with your cranky screen name. But with just a little advance planning, there's a good time to be had in any college hockey town.

    This thread certainly isn't the place for a full rehash of the OSU/Michigan rivalry. But the rivalry is over the line in more than one respect, and that's very regrettable. I went to Michigan Stadium once for The Game, and I doubt I'll ever go back. If I do, it will definitely be incognito. And I'm fully aware that things are just as bad, and probably considerably worse, on this end. But very honestly, as long as I leave the OSU gear and the shoulder chip at home, Ann Arbor works out just fine -- with the possible exception of that once every two years Football game.

    I highly doubt you'll have any trouble wearing Minnesota gear in Columbus. But if you're really concerned, go the plain clothes route.

    Watch out for those Minnesota fans coming to Columbus, especially that CrazyDave guy leading the cheers and singing after every Minnesota goal.

    I look forward to the Crazy Dave concert. I just hope he doesn't get too far through his playlist.

    If he has to do it too many times, he starts to skip the rest and get straight to the spelling.

    Which leads to a vitally important question: At the end of the ritualistic spelling, does the Women's Hockey Crowd include or exclude the "Rah?" IIRC, the Men's Hockey Crowd includes it, but the Football Crowd makes the PA Announcer say it.


    Aside to '86: Looks like it's time to open an Ohio State vs. Minnesota thread!
