Well...this will most likely be the toughest challenge of the year for the FSU Bulldogs. And, Ferris State has Miami, Ohio State, and Western Michigan in their CCHA cluster. So it will be a tough year maybe.

On the nationally ranked bubble Ferris State Hockey taking on the #1 Miami Redhawks this weekend.

The Rankings: USCHO: http://www.uscho.com/rankings/?data=uscho1m&week=poll

Information: Ferris State Hockey (7-3-0 Overall, 2-2-0 CCHA, 6-0 @ Home) @ Miami (Ohio) Hockey (8-1-1 Overall, 5-0-1 CCHA, 3-0-1 @ Home). Ferris State swept the Bowling Green State Falcons at home this weekend, while the Miami Redhawks swept the Michigan Wolverines. Miami may be #1 in the country, but when they were #2 in the country two seasons ago, the Bulldogs swept Miami at home, and then beat Michigan in overtime at home the next weekend. I know how good Michigan is, but any team can beat any team in College Hockey. Ferris State currently has the defensemen and freshman player of the week in the CCHA right now, while Miami has the Forward, and Goaltender player of the week in the CCHA right now.

Not bad, but it looked like you hijacked someone's press release. Not good around here if you provide the link. Be careful...

I like it, the recaps perfect. Thanks FerrisStateHockeyFan.

Jeeze Hammer, Someone from FSU is trying to promote your boys, probably took a lot of time and effort, and that's what you can say?

I'm actually glad this person did this, it breaks down all the press/media for the game, and I don't have to go site to site on game day and what not.

Thanks FerrisStateHockeyFan. And I know where this person was going with the Bubblicious. Most hockey players call it that, meaning your "On the Bubble"...Bubblicious? You never heard of that before?

Ha! Well I'll take that as a comment then Hammer. I did not steal that from anyone's press release. I took the links, that was about it from the websites. Other than that, I made it all up right here in the chat box.

Thanks though CCHAFan

If it's your own work, then great. I don't want to hear anything if you get the hook for taking someone else's work. It's happened around here a few times before. Again, be careful.

Look. I'm about as friendly a face as a Ferris fan is going to see around here. Trust me. I know what I'm doing. I've got a good idea of what works around here and what gets people ridiculed off of here. You don't hang around here for over a decade and not pick up a few things. Believe it or not, I'm trying to help you here.

It's all good Hammer, thanks man.

But yeah, thats strictly all my own work. You plan on watching, or listening to Hennig for free this weekend?

Unfortunately, not likely. I live about 1/4 mile from Adrian College's arena, and they have their home opener this weekend. I've gotten to know the coaching staff and a few of the parents and others surrounding the program, and I've gotten attached to them as well. D-III hockey isn't that bad at all. I was surprised at first.

Plus there's a helluva high school football game that I may take in on Friday night, depending on the weather. It's either going to be Mendon-Hudson or Adrian killing Northland. If I'm home in time on Saturday I may do that game.

Big weekend in Oxford, Miami has faced a lot of good competition in the first 5 weeks and, although they have only played about one complete game to their potential (Saturdays 5-1 whomping at Yost), they still find a way to win the games when they only play a period or two. With their performance last weekend I think most of us 'Skins/'Hawks backers are pumped that they will finally play full games and not let the foot off the pedal (re: UNH 5-5 tie). Over the past few seasons we had an awful record when the opponent scored first, this season they are a nice 3-1-0 though (wins over St Cloud, UNH, and Michigoon).

Also happy that everyone is coming back from Ann Arbor injury-free after the goons started headhunting (and trying to stab with skates) in the 3rd.

I wouldn't be shocked with a weekend split. But like two seasons ago, the Bulldogs swept #2 Nationally ranked Miami Redhawks at home. So we'll see.

I know the buildings real beautiful, and they sell out all their games, but how is the atmosphere at the Goggin? Loud? Or just like any other rink?

"Miami leads the all-time series with Ferris State by a slim 41-39-13 count and by only 21-20-5 in Oxford. The Bulldogs are 3-0-1 in their last four meetings with the RedHawks," - MURedhawks.com

That's an interesting Fact.

In an interview recently with Michigan's goalie Bryan Hogan he said (paraphasing) that it was the most hostile atmosphere he has played in and it starts with the warmups.

as jd said the atmospher is wonderful. The students line up hours before the game to get in as it is first come first serve for the limited free student tickets.

Like I said over at the miami thread, this is a scary series. On paper Miami has superior talent, but Ferris has had Miami's number and Bob Daniels is a good coach. This will be a test for Miami more mentally than anything because of their tough first 10 games they had. Hopefully they don't have a let down, but like Bill Parcell's always says you are what you record is and 7-3 is solid so until further notice I think this will be a tough series.

It's nice to see some of the bigger schools actually respect Ferris State. FSU doesn't do bad at all with the size of the rink they have, the city (second poorest in Michigan), a population of only 10,000 without the students. And a school of 13,800.

Look at it that way, and the teams/schools Ferris State is beating with the recruits they CAN GET is pretty darn good. Other than their place last year, they've been well in the recent years. And last year was a fluke, FSU was going for a top 4 place and went 1-8 in their last 9 games.


Whatever it is, it could easily be a sweep on Ferris State, it could easily be a split, and Ferris State can also definitely sweep Miami as well this weekend.

It's going to depend on Ferris' defense and the goaltending. If Ferris can hold Miami to 2 (or maybe 3) goals a night, we have a chance to get a game. If Miami can put in more, it's 6 points going the other way.

One problem though Hamms...We might be able to hold them to two or three goals, but we need to be able to put three or four goals into the net behind Reichard. Lol.

Lol, like I said above:
Ferris State currently has the defensemen and freshman player of the week in the CCHA right now, while Miami has the Forward, and Goaltender player of the week in the CCHA right now.

So this will be a fun weekend. Hopefully not a bad bus trip back for the Dawgs.

Hammer

Exactly. If we hold them to 2, we've got a shot. If Miami's goaltender has an off night and we get a bounce or two, maybe 3 and a shootout. But if Chupp starts boarding people again and Nagel or Nelson aren't quite on their game, then say goodnight. I'd be stunned if we can get 4 past Miami on any given night. They've been really good defensively the past few years. It hasn't been just one goaltender.

Bulldogs have put numbers on the bored this year, but as everyone says: "Look who were playing"

So like everyone says, we will see this weekend.
