Well the Caps may cool off next spring but.. atleast your not mathematically out of the postseason in October :D

At this rate, every hockey team in the state of Ohio may be out of the picture by December :rolleyes:

Speaking of hockey teams in the state of Ohio, how stupid is it that Ohio will have three D1 teams in a couple of years and they will all be in different leagues. That and the UAH news are really depressing to me. I wonder how many dominoes have to fall before we go back to a 12 team tournament? I'll stop being an old grouch now, but I don't like anything that has happened in college hockey since the Penn State announcement.

Doesn't OSU have a legal/state mandated requirement to schedule football games with other Ohio universities that play at the D1 level?

Never heard that before, I always just assumed they just did for the hell of it, if they are going to schedule cream puffs why not make them the Ohio MAC schools, much like Michigan does with the directional schools. But I really have no clue.

@People older than I, when was the last time Miami played tOSU in football?

Opening game of the 2005 season.

I think I heard it as part of a discussion about OSU's non-conference schedule. Maybe just play the other Ohio schools out of the goodness of their heart's. :D

Won't hear the Ohio schools complaning, I belive tOSU's buy games are a cool $1 million.

Yes, they have to play at least one other Ohio school every year, because it helps make money for both of the schools involved. It's Miami's turn in the rotation next year...

The last time we played OSU was maybe 04 or 05. I went to the game. It was maybe a 35-7 game or so. One of those games in which everyone knew what the outcome would be, we were just there to have fun. We were right in the middle of an OSU section (obviously) and the people couldn't have been nicer.

Not realated to anything, but each time I read a student article, I crave a Bell Tower mashed potato bowl.

I have been conditioned. It sucks.

Honestly, this is the kind of Pulitzer-worthy journalism I have come to expect from the Miami Student, the opinion section lost all of my slim respect after the "Fire Rico" article.

Anybody know what the deal is with the Thursday-Friday schedule this weekend? I would imagine that a smaller than usual crowd would show up for a weekday game, but I may be surprised. Hopefully everybody can step up their game for this series. Kapalka has had a good showing in his last few games, which makes me a bit nervous about our offense.

I believe the primary reason for the Thursday/Friday schedule is the Homecoming football game on Saturday at 3:30pm. We have usually had a typical Friday/Saturday series during Homecoming weekend but I believe the football game has usually started earlier. Hopefully the fact that there isn't a hockey game Saturday night means more people will show up for the football game/not leave the football game early to get in line at Goggin. The Saturday hockey games also have conflicted with other evening Homecoming events in the past.

On the other hand, I know some hockey-fan alumni who are headed back to Oxford, won't get there in time for the Friday game, and are therefore upset that they won't be able to see a hockey game during their Homecoming trip.

Tell me about it, figuring out who is going to sit in line at what time has been impossible because we all have classes/exams!

Hockey line takes precedence over classes, and in some extreme cases exams, come on!

I figured driving from Indy to Oxford, back to Indy, and back to Oxford tomorrow was a tad bit ridiculous so it's All-Access for me this series. Boo.

I wish you would, we are second in line today!

And in other news...Kennedy just tweeted that he will be serving his DQ penalty tonight.

If I cave in the next 4 hours I'll let you guys know.

Guess that means we will be seeing Pauldies tonight, and jd's favorite Mr. Tiesling.
