It's our last series in the CCHA, Michigan takes on Ferris at 7:35. No unusual lineup moves tonight, Sparks and Chiasson out, Szuma and Selman in. Racine in net.
Televised on CBS College tonight
Hey there, MGoCommunity! Thought I'd put out a little bonus content because, honestly, the Oscars bore me most of the time. I know we're all kind of split on the "WE ON" phrase, but it's presented me a great theme with which to work. This one is based upon the theme that every game means something and it's all a "march" toward the ultimate goal of a B1G championship and a Final Four run. Hope you like it. As always, constructive criticism and/or ideas for future work is appreciated.
Our last regular season road game in the CCHA, Michigan goes for the sweep in Columbus tonight. Racine starts in net, Selman stays, Sinelli is back in the lineup, Lindsay Sparks sits. The game is televised on Comcast 900
Pretty fair and interesting analysis of Duke and Miami as well as the chaos in the top half of the B1G. Love this graphic:
This puts top half B1G road records at:
- Indiana: 1-0 (@Michigan, @MSU, @Minnesota remaining)
- Michigan: 1-4 (done)
- Ohio: 0-3 (@Indiana remaining)
- Wisconsin: 1-2 (@MSU remaining)
- Michigan State: 1-2 (@Michigan, @Ohio remaining)
- Minnesota: 0-3 (@Ohio remaining)
Michigan had the toughest schedule against the top half playing all 5 on the road and only getting 3 home matchups. Road wins are hard to come by and I would expect Michigan to be win a share of the B1G crown IF they can protect Crisler. If Indiana or State manages to win 3 road games, they probably win the conference outright, but I doubt that happens.
As bad as the loss in East Lansing was, the haunting loss here is Wisconsin. We had them and a 2-3 road record against this group would be nothing to be ashamed of and would have put us in solid position to win the conference. I still fully expect Michigan to have a shot in the end with 2 weeks to regain some mojo before Michigan State visits Ann Arbor.
