What is this?

So Michigan State beats Michigan in football, yet gets swept by little Lake State in hockey. No wonder so many of the Big Ten and other major DI programs want out of the CCHA & WCHA and their losses to small, DII in-state opponents.

The Wisconsin Badgers beat up on Indiana in football, yet gets swept by DII Michigan Tech. The Badgers were fortunate to get a split at home against DII NMU.

Then to top it off, SCSU (who was expected to be the top shelf of the revamped WCHA and soon moving into the elite conference) gets swept at NMU.

Congrats to my alma mater, NMU! Go Cats!

My BSU Beavers couldn't get over the top this weekend at #7/8 Colorado College. Apparently, we played well enough to be in the hunt in both games, but couldn't close the deal.

Should be a great environment this weekend at the Sanford Center when Lake State comes to town. Go Beavers!

So basically you started a thread from what I can only imagine was your facebook, twitter, and mass text to both of your friends. He-haw donkey, he-haw!

Hey Cross Cheque: This was a remarkable weekend by the Yooper schools and I thought was worthy of attention and discussion. I am neither on facebook or twitter. Why the obstinate criticism? Andrew J Carter

Because it's not worthy of discussion and your initial post reads like a parent blowing up a social networking site because their 15yr old just learned to tie his/her shoe.

It was! But the more remarkable thing to me was 7 Michigan schools going undefeated. MSU lost to LSSU (someone had to lose), but otherwise a great weekend for the great state of Michigan at large.

Is he the parent or the 15yr old? I'm confused.

I'm thrilled to see the UP teams winning. Wouldn't it be great to see the UP become a big hockey powerhouse again? I know, I know, location, no $$$, can't recruit, etc etc etc etc etc but it would be great!

There's no reason the UP teams can't compete and I fully expect that we'll see another NCAA champ come from the UP someday. The UP's 7 national titles weren't a fluke. I grew up playing hockey in the UP and every kid in town played. Hockey is a much bigger part of the UP culture than it is in some other places where they have a few successful years, then declare themselves an elite program in need of an elite league to get a TV contract so they can lure players from real hockey hotbeds.

Just wait until 2013-14 when we shed some of the dead weight out West. Then the WCHA will be the best conference in NCAA hockey for sure.
Note 1: If you need someone to flame today because your team lost, the above statement is completely serious.
Note 2: If you understand what humor is, then you will simply enjoy this thread for its lighthearted look at the UP and move on.
