When I saw the title of this thread I instantly thought it was regarding one coach/player/assistant coach that you wish were never part of your program or wish never left the program. That's another interesting question for another time.

Regarding this question- For Wisconsin it's the 1992 NCAA title game hands down. I was only 12 years-old at the time, but i remember that game like it was yesterday. Wisconsin dominated the first 30 minutes and built a 2-0 lead and looked well on their way to a 6th title . Then they had a so many chances to put the game away only to falter down the stretch and lose 4-2(ENG). Some would say the refs dictated the game by giving LSSU 3 questionable 5-3 powerplays leading to goals, but good teams overcome that. When LSSU took the lead in the 3rd the Badger players and coaches were more concerned with going after the officials than tieing up the game.

For the whole of college hockey: Travis Roy a few feet further from the boards, as mentioned earlier. No brainer.

For my beloved Dartmouth Big Green: The November '04 game against Princeton where Hugh Jessiman injured his ankle on a freak play. It's sad to see Hugh's name tossed around as a punchline the way it was in New York, and I think if he'd gotten through that season in reasonable health, that wouldn't be the case. Equally important, that should have been the best team of the Gaudet era, with five future NHL players (Lewis, Jones, Glass, Stempniak, Lovejoy) on one team, along with Jessiman (who SHOULD be the sixth), Nick Johnson, J.T. Wyman and Mike Ouellette. That team should have gone to the tournament, and if it had, we wouldn't still be wondering if Dartmouth will ever get over the hump.

Not really, I would've brought it up but that game as a whole doesn't bother me that much. To lose in that fashion in a championship game hurts way more.

But I still hate Mike Legg for that goal. :D

No doubt that sucked!! Ol' S.Debus gets to see himself on ESPN every friggin spring for ever. I hated uomich for many years after that game, but we kicked their tails like ten in a row, to bad they won the game that counted the most.............

As a quasi Michigan fan, I would like to say sitting in the audience during the last Frozen Four in Denver and watching that half of the game against Notre Dame was abysmal, can that be stricken from the records please.

Also watching Michigan State win the title in St. Louis sucked also, can that game be replayed please.

I have the official DVD ... and I replay it on average every few weeks :D

The 1982 title game against UND. Win that game and Wisconsin would eventually end up with the three-peat.

I have several, but the one my brain goes back to is this (http://www.uscho.com/box/?date=20080321&vis=nmu&home=um&gender=m). NMU leads at the end of 2, and then allows 4 goals in the 3rd (and kicked a few of those in.) :mad:

A distant second would be this (http://www.uscho.com/box/?date=20061013&vis=nmu&home=mtu&gender=m) game. We wouldn't give up that goal. :mad:

Oh, heck, lets add in pretty much every other CCHA semi while we're at it.

I see your call, and I raise you this game (http://www.uscho.com/box/?date=20031018&vis=nmu&home=mtu&gender=m).
Craig Kowalski can't keep his legs closed for five minutes, and blows the game.



Actually, if there was ONE game that I wish to be re-done, I'd agree that any of the CCHA semi-final games that NMU has lost in the last decade are eligible. :(

Anyone else care to make the obligatory "Girls of Northern Michigan" joke here?

Is it even necessary to ask a Miami fan what their do over is? :(

Unless you're a Redhawk fan, does any of us really have a gripe here? 60 seconds, and 2 goals. It's like Nicholas Cages' straight flush against James Caan in "Honeymoon in Vegas". There's no way you're going to lose.


The beauty of sports. Reading the above brought a huge grin to my face. So awesome.

I'm with Rover. While it's easy to wish for one more second for Tony Amonte, or that Shawn McEachern's puck crossed the line instead of hitting both posts, somehow, 1997 was worse. After beating that Michigan team, there is NO WAY, BU should have lost to a very young North Dakota squad. The "do-over" is to turn the 2nd period from a "5" to a "0"

I love this thread. Keep 'em coming. Oh, and nice sig BoSox3066.

I can't believe BC fans haven't brought up 1998 yet. Who hit the post again in OT? It was quite the clanger.

2009 beanpot championship game. Would have been great to see NU beat BU. can't wait to see what happens in the first round next year (NU v. BU, BC v. Harvard)

I think it was implied. :D

There are several "do-overs" from the last three seasons that I can think of, but the biggest would certainly be Eric Kattelus (I think it was him) clanking the post just seconds before Michigan scored to win the 2008 GLI in double OT. Move that puck three inches to the left and the game ends with a different result.

Just the momentum/morale swing would have had a significant impact, not to mention the RPI/pairwise changes. It just unleashes a whole chain of "what-ifs" :(

Yup, and I think the specific do-over move is put Mark Behrend in goal.

'98 BC/UM game was it Jamie O'Leary hitting the crossbar?

As far as I'm concerned, anybody who's seen their team win a national title in the last 20 years is disqualified from having a do-over.

Its a free country Craig. People are allowed to be greedy if they wanna be greedy.

my do-overs as a BU fan are '91 and '97 with '97 being worse because it was my freshman year in school and our only shot in the national title game during my four years there.

But since I was in the stadium for the '95 title game, and since I DON'T have to apply a do-over to 2009, I'm going to just call it even. :D

Thanks Zach, Matt, Nick and Colby! and to the Miami goalie for not covering the post on the first Cohen goal. you really helped us out there. thank you.

He covered the post. He just left a little too much room airing out his armpit.
