The wheels on the Spartan bus will go round and round all the way to Marquette. That's right, the visitors will make that 7-hour trek this year. I guess this is all part of the continuing tough-guy challenge - but maybe MSU's saving a few drachma to build that sparkly new arena.

Anyhoo, will the Olympic-sized rink be site of an ambush by the cranky wildcats, who are in a mild tailspin?

As Tim "tDean" Staudt would sign off, "only time will tell" :D

But aren't like minded schools WI, UM, MSU supposed to fly to the UP? Or is MSU special?

Reminder, it's FSDet+.... We're on the PLUS station that night, NOT FSDetroit.

FSDetroit is already in the area filming for the MHSAA, so they decided to stick around and put the MSU game on since the equipment is already in the area.

For those of you who have idiots running the TV's at your local establishment who can't seem to find hockey. Ever. ( "What game? Oh we don't get that channel.")

FS Detroit + is on:
DirecTV Channel 664
Dish Network *varies*
Check here before you head out: http://www.foxsportsdetroit.com/pages/fsdplus/

Oh, and it's in glorious Standard Definition. :rolleyes:

This is likely a stretch, but would anyone on here have any ideas on how I could watch this in Milwaukee?

I only have Time Warner Cable, and have no way to get it at home..... :(

I don't know about TV channels, but you can stream the games this weekend on America One for $8 a game if you follow this link:

aygwm2 - I was hoping to catch it at a bar or something. I have been using my office to watch the games lately, but it has been getting quite expensive.

It seems impossible to watch the game in MKE considering I have had a hell of a time finding Red Wings games here too..... First-world problems :(

Try Buffalo Wild Wings, they're usually pretty good about getting games. There must be a few in the milwaukee area.

Most sports bars with a "Sports Pack" should have FSD+....

http://www.foxsportsdetroit.com/pages/channelfinder/

That is the link for their channel listings for various cable/satellite providers... Just call ahead, and most bars can get you an answer if they have the channel or not... You might need to suggest the channel # based on their provider, so have the link handy... Usually if they have FSD, they should have FSD+... Most "Chain" sports bars (BWW, Tilted Kilt, Hooters, Applebee's, Etc.) should be able to accommodate you... Just be sure to offer a decent tip with your 1st round to ensure that you can keep a TV turned to the game...

Thanks guys, I appreciate your help.

I'm hoping for a sweep this weekend, this team has to keep up the momentum at home. The crowds give them an enormous home rink advantage, and it is attracting new underclass fans, which could really help the program going forward.

Let's go Cats!

If I recall correctly, does FSD+ have a Live Web Stream? Seems I remember watching the 'Cats take on Ferris State two seasons ago on FSD+ web stream. Anyone know for sure?

Not to gloat - ok scre3 that I'm gloating:

Mid-to-SE Michigan residents can, in addition to viewing MSU-NMU in standard 2D vision, can (if you're a Comcats subscriber) watch Saturday's game on stunning HD 2D! on ch.707 Fox Sports Detroit Plus HD. Standard-vision on channel 901 w/ a repeat on channel 201 at 12:30 am on Sunday ... just in case you didn't believe what you just saw

Yeah, the "grueling" 7 hour trip must have been something. I heard they made it a 3 day trek with overnight stops in Gaylord and Seney on the way!

Ooooh that doesn't leave much time for dilly-dallying.

Right now, I suppose there's plenty of blame to go around with this current squad, especially with "bike-gate" and all the conspiracy theories floating around, and the 18-1/2 minute gap in the tapes, and all the cover up, and pretty soon Woodward and Bernstein. But I think Coach Kyle put a positive spin on last nights MSU game. See recap and interviews at the Mining Journal's sit http://www.miningjournal.net/page/content.detail/id/569238/Puck-luck-not-going-the-way-of-NMU-hockey-team.html?nav=5010 . And, aren't there 25 players on this team? I wasn't watching last nights game real close, but I see defensive breakdowns quite a bit--and not with the defensemen so much, but with wingers back-checking. Plus this team does not seem to do a very good job of transitioning out of their own zone. The first goal of the night by Krug--he was all alone on the weak side of a rush by MSU. Then just minutes later Kesti takes an elbowing penalty--not a good way to start a game. I missed the 36 second goal to start the 2nd period--how did that happen? NMU down by two right off the bat in the second period and then they don't score until late in the third period to move within one. They seem to be back on their heels and playing catch-up much of the time--that's tough to sustain throughout a season. They beat St. Cloud early in the season--and look at St. Cloud they've been a .500 club and then beat Minnesota last night. Like the Mining Journal says: "Puck luck not going the way of NMU hockey team".

I hope the Cats can end their drought tonight. Will be home with my little one watching it on TV. Last nights game NMU at least had more SOG... it is just too bad it wasn't a win.
