They also give a very good view of the "No goal" you can very plainly see it was on the line but not over. (2:20-2:25)


Maybe if the video board at Yost wasn't so diminutive we could have avoided all the confusion. It's just flat out impossible to see the puck on that antiquated thing.

Enjoy the rest of your season, gents.

There were only three things you could call diminutive at Yost this weekend: 1. Me. 2. Shawn Hunwick 3. Enrico Blasi.
At least two of us kept our cool and didn't make an azz of ourselves. :eek:

Thanks for that, Joe. Maybe you should post that on the Miami thread...:D

Edit: Although they would probably say that it was a goal.

I did at about the same time I posted it here.

And, yes, they did.

NHL Central Scouting Bureau has him at #175 among North American Skaters. Of course a LOT of those rated higher are ineligible for NC$$ teams. The first 8 all fit into that category. The highest rated NC$$ eligible is #9 - Jacob Trouba - also coming to A2.

On to East Lansing and The Joe.

What do you think of our chances without TxBrownie on Friday? I would love a sweep, but a split would work. I just see us having a hard time in Munn unless Hunwick keeps up the magic.

We absolutely cannot take less than 3 points.

MSU is playing pretty well right now, even if they are only 4-4-2 in their last ten games, 2-2-2 at Munn including a sweep by Miami. They did get swept by Ferris up in Big Rapids, but rebounded in Columbus. Anytime you sweep an opponent on the road, it is impressive and adds confidence and momentum. I'd feel much better with Brown in the lineup since he has two goals and two assists in three games against them. He was injured for the WMU series earlier this year and we split that series- albeit at home.

I'd say that this will hamper our offense, so the pressure will be on Hunwick and the defense to hunker down. Any points in EL will be okay, and then win in Detroit.

Six games to go- 4-2 and Michigan takes a top four position in the CCHA. 5-1 or 6-0 and they have a real good chance of beating out FSU or WMU- the two teams I think with the inside track. @MSU, MSU at the Joe, NMU home finale and @BGSU. I don't see Ferris or WMU doing better than 4-2 with the schedules they have left. If they do, they deserve where they finish.

Ferris - home & home with Notre Dame; BG @ home; home & home with Western
Western - ohio @ home; @ Lake State; home & home with Ferris

I'd say 4-2 for each is just about right although Western could do 5-1 or even 6-0.

And, yes, Shawn needs to stand on his head Friday and get all the help he can.

I just pray Brian Hill is nowhere near East Lansing.

Western has piddled down their collective legs the last couple of weeks, getting swept at Miami and then splitting with BG. That's opened the door for FSU and Michigan, really. I can't see them running the table, OSU is bound to win a game someday, LSSU is a solid team, especially at home and FSU seems to be doing it with mirrors, but are getting it done.

And right now I don't care who is wearing the stripes. They all seem to be skating on eggshells. Something doesn't seem to be right and the pressure on them is growing. We're not the only team getting puckered on. MSU is quite capable of stirring it up and we've already got a dose of what NMU is capable of. Just have to be better disciplined and poised to accept the circus act.

I know it's not college hockey but they're saying next January's NHL winter classic will be the Red Wings vs the Maple Leafs in The Big House. SWEET! That'll be a new attendace record for the pro's.

That's been all over the news in southeast Michigan for a couple of months. Yesterday the U-M regents had a special meeting to approve leasing the stadium to the NHL which they did. $3,000,000 plus a "Significant" donation to the general scholarship fund.

There is supposed to be a news conference in Detroit this morning around 10:30 and another in Ann Arbor around 1:30 to officially announce it.

Along with that there is supposed to be an outdoor rink installed in Comerica Park with AHl and OHL games there along with next year's Great Lakes Invitational Tournament. The way things are going it is almost to the point where if there is a college outdoor game it is mandatory for the Wolverines to be a participant.

Stay tuned for the official announcement.

Michigan commit named CHP #59 NHL Draft College Prospect Justin Selman

I assume that we have a goalie recruit for next year? Pretty sure that Hunwick would come back for a 6th year if granted by the NCAA but the chances of that are about as good as an abandoned couch in east landfill NOT being set on fire...
