    If we got 2 out of three- I would be ecstatic. That would mean the FB team wins a game most people think they wont OR that the hockey team sweeps Wisconsin on the road.

    Anything more than 1 would be pretty nice at this point.

    2 out of 3 would please me. Of course I want 3 out of 3 but I also need to be a realist. A hockey split along with a football victory is what I expect though.

    and

    Any news about Quinn Hughes' younger brother Jack? Everything that I'm hearing is that we're trying hard to get him here but nothing official yet.

    Our Wolverines let me down this weekend. I knew 2 games (out of 3 for hockey & football) was a stretch goal, but I thought it was attainable. Up until Peterson was hurt in the football game.
    Alas, we return from Madison with 2 points from the weekend of hockey, putting us in the middle of the Big Ten conference standings. This weekend we host the *eyes in football and hockey.

    OSU is 1-3 in conference play with a pair of loses to Notre Dame and a split at Wisconsin. Those are the only decent teams they've faced.

    After the last home weekend vs. Minnesota, I thought we had a top half of the conference team. I think this weekend's games will give us a clearer picture if that's true.

    All a dream huh lol. Mel was pretty harsh on the team during his interview with the radio guys last night. Basically said they only played 1 period all weekend and they will work this week because they decided not to work against Ohio State. He did give Ohio State credit.

    Why should Mel give you guys credit? Hes far more upset how the team sucked than you playing better than us.

    I had hopes for this team and Mel's first year back.
    After this weekend, I'm resigned to a team that looks like they'll finish in the bottom half of the conference and nowhere in the national rankings.
    I'll continue to cheer, support and hope they prove me wrong.

    I'm going to still hope we will improve. They have shown some great play at times, and can do a lot better.

    We play jailbait this weekend. Who is going to the game in Plymouth?
    I drive by the rink on my way to work each day....and yet, I feel like it is too far to drive for me to want to go.

    We haven't decided yet if we're going. I don't think the atmosphere can compare to a game at Yost.

    I will be there. I will be working, though...

    I would say you are correct. From what it looks like, they draw more now than they did when they operated out of the Cube, but still don't have a huge following. They do have draft beer for sale around the concourse, though...

    Who would have thought that we have the lowest amount of wins compared to every team in the Big Ten? Wow this is sad, even sparty has one more win than us...

    Hockey tonight vs. Sparty. Anyone with insight as to why this is a Thursday/Friday series?
    Please let us at least win at home, but preferably sweep.
