Always a chance. Reality though......not much of a chance.

Yes.

Hildy will need to play "out of his mind" and/or MSU sets the NCAA game record for blocked shots.

As pointed out in a different thread, the only way to block shots is to not have the puck. The teams with the highest number of blocked shots also tend to not have the puck in their possession, and it's pretty tough to score goals that way.

Sorta true. On the other hand, we don't score goals anyway, so ...

I've never been all that proud that we seem to lead the country in blocked shots last couple years - it means we're not skating well.

Has it been determined if Anastos will utilize a 3-2 or 2-3 neutral zone blockage for this weekend?

I heard he was talking with Izzo, and TI suggested a 1-3-1 zone. Suzy Merchant (who is extremely attractive by the way) suggested a 1-2-2. except on the PK, then go to a 1-2-1. Dantonio suggested to stack the line, and try to get the punter to bobble the snap. Which of course, will lead to a Spartan TD. 27-23 MSU!

Anyway, 4-2, 3-2 PSU.

Hope not :rolleyes:

I'd say of course there's a chance though. We got worked by OSU, Mich, and Minnesota in 4 of the last 5 games.

What a pathetic example of a College Hockey Program MSU is. Absolutely pitiful. A disgrace to the University and It's alumni.
Absolutely schooled by a team in just it's fourth year. This MSU team can't couldn't complete a pass to save a life (or maybe a Head Coach).
Out shot. Out hustled. Out played. No heart (except the Goal Tender). No life. Certainly not Coached.
Hate to say it, but I'm thinking that Jake Hildebrand should have gone Pro after last season. With NO help from his 'Teammates", he has endured more then he should have. Five years into this 'Regime' and this is what we get; Disgusting.
With a record of 7-20-2, what justification, what possible sane reason, can the AD offer to keep this current Coaching Staff past this season?

Neither it seems. Looks like he installed the Matador scheme.
