Way to make us alumni proud boys by mailing this weekend in. Too excited by the posh accomodations in Ann Arbor to give two ****s?

One comment to the Northern fans. I was waiting for one opposing CCHA fan to notice the big slight in the remodel. From what I can see, none of you guys picked it up, either.

So you probably noticed the lack of other team logos as we had before. To me- eh, ok, I can deal with that.

But did any of you notice that there was no mention of the CCHA at all (not including the banners)? A B1G is on the upper west side, but no CCHA. That really bugged me.

Anyway, quite the different game tonight.

Boy were the Cats awful tonight!

Watched both games this weekend and the already offensively challenged Wildcats were really stunted without Matt Thurber. In my opinion, he is what makes the offense roll and from what I saw in these two games, the high powered Higby/Seckel line was invisible without the CCHA's leader in assists between them.

Although it is a disappointing way to go out, thank you to all the senior's for your time and effort for NMU over the last 4 years!

I did notice that when I was in the building Friday night. That bugged me as well.

The problem with accepting "pretty good" is that certain things are supposed to be important. That's what they tell us.

Now, I can see the NMU questionable call being made because of that- we saw it last week with call on Trouba which was the same (I still would put Troubas more as an elbow vs last night, but streaker disagrees). But if that is important, isn't CFB STILL important? That one didn't even need to be called CFB, but it was clearly not a good place to put a check on, and lesser has been called a lot in the past. So if borderline elbows are called since the hit was big, then borderline CFB should be called as well.

I'm not looking at it as "we were wronged" as paula implied- I'm looking at it as what they have called and what tell us should be called. If things are going to be penalties form borderline situations, then ALL borderlines should be called. Rules are rules, call it. We think that the games will be penalty filled- and sometimes they are. But the players know what they can not get away with.

Anyway, enough of that rant.

Not sure how much it will be rocking. I'll still only have one of our two seats... :( But more students should be back- so there should be more there. If it goes to game 3, the IU-UM BB game is at 4pm, so that will spill nicely into the game. Hope we don't have to deal with that. ;)The only consistent has been the inconsistency.it's hard to tell what is and isn't a penalty not only week to week and crew to crew, but period to period and play to play. We will see in the coming months just which refs Piotrowski brings along to the B10, and which ones he defended in the CCHA, that he doesn't want to bring along.
