Yes this is a hockey board and we all love Michigan hockey. However Football starts tomorrow!!!!!
Also, that means hockey is right around the corner!
I'm excited. I was checking the Deker website to find news on the picnic, but the website hasn't been updated since last season. Wonder if Mel will do the picnic, or if that was a Red thing.
What are predictions for this season? Anyone know much about our incoming Freshman? How many seasons to get back to the NCAA tourney (on a consistent, let's aim for our previous streak or better manner)?
I'm all kinds of hopeful. However, I like to temper my expectations so as to not be mad/disappointed. I'm hoping for a winning season, preferably 20+ wins.
Also, did everyone see/read the Oral History of Yost posts on mgoblog.
Great reads. Reminds me why I love the Yost atmosphere, this team, and college hockey in general.
All that I know for sure is that I'm antsy for football. About 30 more minutes...
Re: the picnic- apparently there are some new NCAA rules that effect the picnic. Which is why it's taking so long to set up.
If you want to see a video of the team practicing- there's one up on Mgoblue.com.
Less than a month for the season to start. Actually- 3 weeks until the "opener" with Western Ontario, which is also "skate with the Wolverines" night. (Which we will miss.... )
**** Michigan. That is all
And these several years prior.
Spoke to a friend today about Michigan Hockey. He informed me that he has heard from multiple people close to the team that the Freshmen are looking outstanding in practice. Now I can't say that this guy is reliable, but I also can't say if he is full of isht. Basically take it for what it's worth, we'll be young but highly competitive this year. I hate looking to the future for results but as Timbuk 3 said, "The future's so bright I gotta wear shades."
OK that was lame but you get the point.
I've heard similar from players we know. They are pretty excited for the season.
Hope it translates into success they want!
