Understandable reaction. But the bigger story is that Friday/Saturday format survived mostly intact, despite all of the dire rumors. Consider the breakdown of the 22 Home Games:

Friday: 9 Games
Saturday: 9 Games
Sunday: 1 or 2 Games
Monday: 1 or 2 Games
Tuesday: 1 Game

Note that the second Michigan game might yet be on Sunday, March 2nd -- which would likely draw just fine. And who knows? Maybe Michigan is the one opponent that will draw well on a weeknight. Guess we'll find out on Monday, December 2nd.

It is too bad that the Home & Home with BG is on a pair of Tuesday nights. But hey, at least BG is still on the schedule. Miami as well. All things considered, the 2013-2014 home schedule is a very nice package.

I am very happy that the schedule worked out the way it did.

Not gonna hear me complain about 21 out of 34 games being at home!With so many home games and always eating at them I can't help but wonder what the food will be like. Sodexo is out at OSU and it will be interesting what menu the new company will formulate for us but I would be very surprised if they're less expensive than Sodexo.

I'll probably do my usual and make sure I have eaten before I get to the games. That way, all I will have to get is the usual $4 12-oz bottled water.

Anyone else watching this Boston vs New York NHL Playoff series? Matt Bartkowski is showing well in the playoffs. I'm happy for him.

I'm with ya.... cannot wait for the season to start! Nice schedule that will provide ample opportunity to take some road trips and see our boys on the road!

I am stoked about the schedule. I could be wrong on this, but I do not remember ever having a schedule where 21 of the 34 games are at home.

Just my theory, but I think this team was built in both personnel and schedule for this coming season. I think this season was the goal that Oz and Rohlik were pointing toward from day 1. They played a ton of road games last year and my guess will be that they will play a ton next year in paybacks to Mercyhurst, Niagara, Canisius, etc. I think they have the personnel that they wanted - a few key seniors, a ton of now experienced juniors, some key sophomores and freshmen.

That is why I hate the coaching change so much.....it just makes things much more difficult.

Just here to genuinely say that I feel for you guys. I was really impressed with what Oz was building there and I think what you are seeing now is really unfair to you fans.

Hope they get things leveled out. Best wishes.

Sorry guys... but I knew this was coming. Tough to lose a player like that this late in the game

Tough loss. Stepan was our star recruit. It appears OSU put a condition on his release that he not attend another Big Ten school. Hopefully things work out for both sides in this. I can't blame the kid. He signed up to play for Coach Oz, not Rohlik. He has to make the best decision for him, and he felt the best decision was to play elsewhere. Tough break for us, great for Minnesota State.

He's just one good player. It's not like he was the whole team. It gives others a chance to prove themself's.
