We beat the he!! out of them physically and mentally for 110 out of 120 minutes this weekend. They had no answer for anything we threw at them. Gee whiz, our split with LSSU last week and with Tech a few weeks back were tougher series than what we went through with the vaunted #5 Domers.

    The Western Michigan guys still can't get over that they lost 2-of-3 to a team from the "crappy WCHA." And Mankato has freakin' OWNED the Nachos this year. Both Alaska teams are playing well and have made OOC noise.

    We're doing well this year. Underestimate us at your peril...

    To clarify, by "us" I meant the WCHA as a league, not necessarily Mankato or BG.

    I wonder what was said on the BG bench after they went down 3-0 to Huntsville.

    Re: WCHA 2019-20 season: We Can Do Better Than Two Bids and a First Round Exit

    Has anyone where that is not a Tech fan listened to any of the Chasing MacNaughton Podcast yet?
    I was wondering what the non-MTU fans think of it so far. As we get more comfortable in what we're doing we're trying to expand into more WCHA and less MTU focused discussions.

    I listened to this week's episode and enjoyed it. Matt Wellens was a good guest to have, and I thought the talk about the future of the league and things like video streaming were good discussions.

    How about an hour-long weekly WCHA show and a shorter Tech specific show?

    You have a lot of free time on your hands, no?

    Iím more curious what was said for two separate UAH players to earn 10-minute misconduct penalties. I donít think Iíve ever seen a team meltdown like that in a period.

    very funny...maybe, most weeks we seem to have enough content. I've thought about about doing something like that and maybe it will come as content grows
    I do like having a guest like Matt or someone following another WCHA team like Geof or Shane Frederick...we shall see how it goes. If we start recording 90 minutes consistently I might try to split it up.

    Would you ever consider interviewing the opposing coach? Would they accept?

    That usually happens when you direct an f-bomb at the refs.

    90 minutes is probably too long for a one-team college hockey podcast.

    I'm saying if we keep getting to 90 minutes of recording between interviewing someone like Matt Wellens I will think of cutting it into an WCHA segment and an MTU segment. Last week the unedited recording was about 90 minutes

    We're recording episode 4 of the Chasing MacNaughton Podcast tonight, any questions about MTU or the WCHA? We'll be joined by Drew Evans from BGSUHockey.com tonight, so if you have anything for him let us know that too! Please send your questions to ChasingMac@TechHockeyGuide.com

    I listened to episodes two and three and enjoyed having the "third mic" for a portion if it being a guest from around the league / region. Matt Wellens was able to provide some good insight, and the banter was relevant. Same with UAF.

    When it's more Tech centric, it flowed well so far for being a "new" podcast. I appreciate the insight that you guys have provided so far. It's quickly got a vibe of "sitting and talking hockey with some good friends." The rapport you have with each other already helps make it feel comfortable, and there wasn't any (or very, very few) "inside" jokes that makes things weird.

    I initially just wanted to catch some segments from the second and third episodes (like realignment, NMU recap) (really appreciate the breakdown of approximately when each segment "starts"!!), but found myself just letting the audio run after that that.

    It's not appointment radio, but I added you to my Google Podcasts app so I can pick and choose when to grab an episode.


    Probably not the glowing review you're holding for, but in summary: It was good, had a good mix of MTU based talk along with league information. Will tune in again.

    Thats all I can ask for a non-MTU fan at this point. I appreciate it. I honestly think its pretty glowing for you to say you just let it go even though you only intended to listen to the WCHA focused stuff.
    If I can keep it going, I hope to have a guest with a different perspective each week or most weeks.

    Like Shirtless Guy said... I appreciate the feedback as well! While it's always going to have a Tech perspective, we really do want to make it appeal to the WCHA as a whole.

    Any comments on the content or production quality are welcome as we're all pretty new to this!

    MTU Hockey fan since I was carried to a game in 1986 - for those counting... that's a lot of depressing hockey. Still love it.
