Luckily for hockey fans two of those three games the basketball starts at noon so they will not be a problem. The only complication comes on Dec. 6 with our hockey team hosting Penn State. The time is listed as TBA but you can bet it will be an evening game. That same day the basketball team hosts Iowa starting at 6:30.
    Not too bad. Thanks for doing that comparison, now I won't have to.

    It begins this afternoon. The puck drops at 4:00 in Yost.
    I'll be in my usual seat like I have been for the past 27 or so years.
    That open practice and lunch with the team a couple weeks ago was a nice touch.
    I am curious to see what this year's Season Ticket holder gift is.

    I think we heard it was a bag of some type.

    Not sure what we can tell this early on from an exhibition vs. Windsor. We won, so that's good. Freshman were already contributing. I still like Mann as goalie.
    I didn't pay too close attention yesterday, as we took our little wolverine to her first game.

    It's a clear plastic tote bag. Check your mail, and hope you don't automatically throw away things that look like the University asking for money. The card for the gift, as well as the 20% concessions card came with a letter from coach in an envelope that looks like the typical junk mail from UofM athletics.

    My wife really wanted to get it last night, but we were more focused on bringing my aging parents to the game. We were distracted at the right times, just like you and your very little one. BTW, it's good that you are doing band exposure. Should end up following mom's footsteps.

    The team looked pretty good- fast, some good passes, and once they passed the 30 shot mark, they really started to go in. But the 3rd period was pretty slow (in terms of skating speed)- so was that Windsor or us? And it will be interesting to see this weekend when it's a real game. York's 2nd goal last night was really sweet- and all of us were actually paying attention to that one.

    For the entire season, when we spoke with the team a few weeks ago, they were super excited, and thinking this will be a great season- and compare that with the very pessimistic view of the B1G coaches- thinking we will share the bottom with State.

    I've never underestimated your team, don't know why the coaches would.

    Well, when you look at what we lost- I can see that. But that also partially ignores 1) who we gained coming in, and 2) the actual problems with last year's team. You could see the chemistry problems show up on the ice- just like it has periodically over the last 20 or so years- sometimes you get guys who are just not willing to embrace the entire team. If they can fix that, the team will be very good.

    Re: Michigan Hockey 2019-2020- a big fresh start, again.

    Hockey season starts tonight! I'm excited. Hopefully we make it to the game. My mom is flying in from TX, and I'm supposed to pick her up from the airport. Assuming her flight is on time, we'll have time for dinner (maybe Mr. Spots....it seems appropriate for home hockey games), then the 4 of us will head to the game. Tomorrow night mom's babysitting so husband and I can go unencumbered to the game. Sunday is the reason for my mom's visit as we celebrate my cousin's baby shower. That child will also be raised a hockey fan (though of the green and white variety).

    Clarkson this weekend. I remember the game we played up there a couple years back, they were good and our team was not at peak performance yet. All I know about their team this year is they are ranked #11, and we are not ranked. Here's hoping we can get a win this weekend.

    Re: Michigan Hockey 2019-2020- a big fresh start, again.

    I super excited, too!!! The team made a lot of positive comments before, now they get to really back it up.

    Clarkson is a good team- at least they are expected to be better than us. They won the ECAC Tournament last year, and are returning a lot of players (19). Lost two big scorers, but they seem to think that the guys behind them will fill right in. And they also beat a Canadian team last week rather handily. So if we can do well this weekend, it will be a pretty big deal.

    Oh, and a reminder for the season ticket holders- there's the event next Friday before the Lake State game at Cliff Keen- which you need to RSVP for via the email. We are planning on going.

    Okay somehow I missed the invite for that. Was it an email? Snailmail? When did you get yours?

    Email at the the one I have for the season tickets. Since you were invited to the practice, seems like you should have been invited to this... dunno...

    Interesting. By any chance do you still have your email? Would you consider forwarding it to me? joezur@aol.com

    Not sure what to make of that game- they seemed to play really well, and control much of the game- just couldn't put the puck in the net. It wasn't uncomfortable that Clarkson was going to score at anytime, even though they had some great chances. They looked quite good- just not quite enough.

    If that was the #11 team in the country I have to feel good about our guys playing them to a 1-1 tie. The flow of the game gave me the impression a tie was legit. I thought they played pretty even.
    My biggest complaint/concern was the 0 for 7 on the power play including TWO "5 on 3"s. That said one was for only about a half minute but the other was more than a minute and a half.

    About that 11 ranking- I thought Clarkson did play pretty darned well for the early part part of the game- and at times they did dominate. But our play just got better all night.

    100% behind your PP concern. OTOH, our PK looked good- other than the one goal. Van Wyhe almost got that one back- so VERY close to scoring a shorty.

    All in all, it was a good game!

    The one funny thing was that we started the game passing like it was the first game of the season, when last week, the passes were sharp and quick. Speed the game up just a little bit, and things fall apart.

    You must have been at the game. For us that are away tried to stream it found out what a Bush league big ten plus is!! no stream. Unacceptable for Big ten, Michigan must do better. Waste of $15.

    That sucked. A totally different line up top to bottom, and they looked pretty crappy. After a game where we controlled a lot of the play, we could do nothing.
