    Yeah! I finished my shopping yesterday, which is a personal record. I guess this is growing up.

    Yes I'm old, I admit it. But even after 32+ years, I'm still ****ed about 1985. Can't let it go.

    Hard to put this one behind them, but they have to. Very short turnaround before aOSU comes to town.

    Get Apap back and stop it already with the silly mistakes.

    Certainly not what I was hoping for this weekend. I did not see either game but 11 goals suggests defense and goaltending struggled. I also heard we suffered some strange goals. I checked the score at work and we were up 2-0. I then had to spend the rest of the day in the lab so the next time I checked it was 5-3 UM and I was very disappointed. A win or two this weekend would fix that feeling.

    Vs. umaa there were two goals off of Spartan players not named Lethemon.

    Looking forward to this weekend's series. OSU has a better road record than at home this season but of course it depends as always which team shows up, the ones who bring their A game other the other one.
    Associate Head Coach Miller won't be with the team this weekend as he won't be back from the World Juniors in time.
    Nothing against Coach Rohlik but the team has a different feel and drive when both are there.

    Well, that game happened. I do not know if the team is still feeling the GLI schedule but they looked as if they lacked energy and focus. I mean REALLY lacked energy. I do not believe OSU is that much faster than MSU.

    Not sure if another game 24 hours later will help. There was nothing positive about MSU's performance last night other than Minney playing well In a game that was doomed far before he entered.

    I know it hurts for now but your team is making positive strides.
    I predict with the new coaching staff, your young team getting experienced and some good recruiting MSU hockey will get strong again.

    Thanks. We're pleased with what we have seen so far and understand the team is very young and likely outgunned in every B1G game. It is a little frustrating after such a good Non-con but we're seeing that the B1G really is a different beast this year.

    I have a question and no offense to your fans but who's the genius at the University that decided that women's purses & clutches were security risks and banned them?
    There's being cautious and then there's just being absurd and paranoid.

    This happened after a threat the university took pretty seriously a couple months ago. I know they have been banned at football games for awhile now so naturally hockey eventually was included. I am no expert though.

    What do they think can be smuggled in a purse that can't be hidden under a coat? Ridiculous!

    It's telling what a difference a five-day rest can do.

    I'd like to hand out stars
    3rd star: MSU defense, which for the most part played a clean game in their own end and limited the number of dangerous chances Lethemon had to handle
    2nd star: Hey, Lethemon did get the shutout, so he needs to get one of these
    1st star: The third and fourth lines, which made more of a difference tonight than I think I've seen all year. Apap really does make an impact, but those guys (especially Brody Stevens) really stepped it up with play in offensive zone.

    In all, MSU looked like a confident bunch tonight.

    Not that I've ever done it but I understand that one can sneak in a flask filled with your favorite beverage, in a inner coat pocket. If the University still offered Coca-Cola instead of that dreadful pepsi misery, one could add it to their coke. But now, just get a Coffee or Hot Chocolate and add to that.

    Despite Thursday going down to the wire and the nice comeback, I thought our performance was disappointing. Minnesota outplayed us in every facet of the game. Their speed advantage was glaring and we looked weak defensively both in transition and in our inability to knock them off the puck in our own zone. That was a very strange game considering the short handed goals and each team scoring on a harmless dump in from the neutral zone.

    Last night was much better. We played with far more vigor and physicality. It was bitterly disappointing to lose it in the final minutes again but I can't complain about the team's performance especially in the wake of Lewandowski and Hirose exiting the lineup early.

    I hope Hirose is ok. It's a good thing we have a week off to heal up and rest.

    If there has been one thing that I have seen almost consistently this year as a nagging issue, it has been lack of speed. In fact, with varying degrees this has been an issue (with a few exceptions) ever since the program began its steep decline.

    I almost never weigh in on things external to hockey, but Mark Hollis' impending resignation is part of an important reset both for the University as a whole and MSU athletics. Accountability, Responsibility, Communication, Openness.

    It is a tough time to be a MSU graduate and supporter. The things that are coming out about the situation are just unfathomable.

    Now an ESPN article is out saying "..An Outside the Lines investigation has found a pattern of widespread denial, inaction and information suppression of such allegations by officials ranging from campus police to the Spartan athletic department, whose top leader, Mark Hollis, announced his retirement on Friday."

    Who knows where this article will lead. It focuses on instances with the football and basketball programs.

    Wonder if they'll go more in depth on OTL when it airs tonight.
