I really want to thank you fellow Tech fans for allowing us NMU alumni to vent yesterday. Maybe because we all had hoped for so long this matchup would happen that when all the cards fell into the right spot, we all made plans to meet back up for a mini-tInvasion reunion.
OlverIsMyHero, NMUPiccDiva, HockeyBando, myself, and a few others had the ability to get to Marquette for Saturday. The timing worked out for all our schedules.
But instead, we'll be sitting home watching the game. Instead of coming home to our Alma Mater to watch something that we (NMU fans) all last saw in person in 2010. And fewer saw in 1999. NMU play in a title game.
Thank you MeanEGirl, Big blue, HuskyNation, and others for the outreach. May we all soon gather together again for good times!!
Just listened to the JSH. He had some interesting comments about NMU's ticket sales. It sounded like Tech (Suzanna Sanregret) had to fight for the 150 tickets and to have our pep band there. His comments on the BGSU and 200 tickets. Tech called BGSU and asked them how many tickets they wanted. They replied 200. They also returned what they didn't sell for MTU to sell.
My interpretation, this was not an NMU ticketing accident/incompetence of IT systems. Give it a listen.
Props to BSU and MSU for supporting a friendly competitive atmosphere.
I just listened to it as well. One other takeaway was when Joe mentioned that NMU may need Sanregret's help in a WCHA or GLIAC matter in the future and may not get it. My guess is she was not very happy with how NMU played their hand. Then I got a chuckle when Dirk said he normally doesn't promote other media outlets but mentioned the game will be on TV. Joe replied "see that's how you work together. Just tell people to watch the game and figure out how to sync the audio so they can watch the game and listen to you(Dirk)". I'm liking Joe more and more every time I listen to him.
I like this team!

The Mix93 stream is typically ahead of the WCHA.tv stream. If you use RealPlayer or the Windows Media Player and play the pasty.net link you can pause the audio to sync to the correct time on video.
I didn't realize you could pause the Livestream, I'll try that next time. Played through FM last time the audio was messed up on an away feed, of course it was a few seconds ahead.

We have a commitment from Blais Richartz, a 17-year-old forward from Menomonie, Wis., currently playing for Tri-City (USHL). He has 8 goals and 6 assists in 44 games, which places him 29th in the USHL in points per game for U18s excluding NTDP players. (Logan Pietila ranks 21st in the same category.)
One thing I want to really give our staff credit for is teaching and developing players. It's amazing what has been done in the past 6 months. Our guys have really progressed and the credit goes to the staff. They put in long hours, work very hard and really do the job.

My only criticism is of the early, and less but continued, negativity by Coach Shawhan towards the players. Statistically the players on this team are on par or in some cases better than the guys before them even though they were admittedly ignored to some extent by the coaching staff through there prior years development. I can't help but think that with more positive statements and reinforcement that the guys would have played with more confidence and been even better. The sophomores, juniors and seniors on this team were a big part of the conference championship last year. Lesperance led the team in points, Gould in goals, Auk and Luchinni right on their heels. To sell these guys short by continually discounting there contribution (even alluded to as late as Monday's JSH) is mind boggling to me. This senior class is the first since 72-76 to win 20 games all 4 years. They've had 2 NCAA appearances (soon to be 3), a WCHA championship (soon to be 2), numerous other tournament victories and more to come. Luchinni, Gould, Rienke (if he stays), Jackson, Smith and most of the freshman have a shot to be as good as anyone on the list that Coach Shawhan continues to rattle off. It's really time to move forward coach and give this team their due. No matter what happens Saturday this is a champion caliber team in my mind and as good as any.
I love this team! Go Huskies!!
A good number of our guys wanted to play a skill game and didn't want to play a gritty/hard ice game. To be fair, I only attended two Tech games, GLI championship and the Saturday @BGSU game. The difference between Tech in both games was night and day. At the GLI, BGSU physically imposed their will on us, and it started to wear on the guys as the game went on. Saturday @BGSU, BGSU came out to crush us, but we stood tall, matched their physicality, and played a complete game. To my untrained eye, it looked like a totally different Tech team. (More like the 2016-2017 team that Coach talks about.)
As with anything, there is a balance. It appears Joe has found the balance that works for this team. Players are developing. (Has anyone regressed this year?) Our Freshmen have grown and are solid contributors. Our goalies didn't roll over and quit after the long inconsistent stretch. That to me is amazing and kudos to them and the staff for working with each other.
Could things be better? Always. We need to beat NMU Saturday.
I think the future is bright for MTU hockey.
So this week is dragging despite an overly busy work week.
I am intrigued to see what type of game the title game will turn into.
Both teams can score in bunches, and will the extra emotion cause it to be a defensive battle or a run and gun shootout.
With Tolvanen to deal with, we need to get some screens and get him moving.
