Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

One of the more unlikely results of the conference season as Northwestern deals State their first conference loss, in East Lansing no less.
Let's hope Northwestern got the good out of their system tonight and sucks when they play us this Saturday.
Interesting article I stumbled upon while visiting thebiglead.com.
Apparently football/basketball players tend to have significantly lower SAT and GPAs than the average student body at various institutions. Of particular note is that UM had one of the highest SAT averages (997), while MSU had one of the lowest (917). Not that this should be a newsflash for anyone, but I found it particularly glaring how significant some of these gaps were, especially at schools where academic standards are, how do we say, somewhat lax.
Article about Dantonio's contract revisions (linked below) basically says he maintains his current salary ($618,00/year). However, if he stays at MSU until 2016, he'll end up averaging 1.8 million a year. Apparently his contract will start to escalate at some point. Also, Dantonio will get a 2 million dollar bonus in that final year (2016).
Not sure I've seen anything like this.
No that's not the score of a potential basketball game... that's the shots on goal stats from tonight's GLI championship. Michigan won 5-1 and has seemed to now permanently broken the Jeff Lerg mystique. By reading the accounts of the game, it sounds as if it was a classic "Red got pissed off and unleashed the hounds" type of game with some posters claiming Michigan could have won 10-1 if not for some goal posts and some nifty work by Lerg. Seriously, Comley's gotta feel some heat now. Multiple guys left the team, no scoring threat what so ever (and I'm sorry, but you coach at Michigan St one of the power teams in NCAA hockey, and you can't get a legit scoring threat in the past two recruiting classes?). From a recruiting point of view, do you want to go play with Comley's group of Prison Shower Shiv'ing all-stars who goon up the ice from start to finish, or would you rather go play at a open offensive system like Michigan, pretty much any Hockey East team, or NoDak/Minn/WCHA-is-the-greatest-conference-in-the-history-of-mankind? Unless you're Zdeno Chara, I think you're choosing the latter (especially as Comley's history of pro success stories is kind of short).
Hope this is the beginning of a second half run with HOOO-GAAAANNNNNN in net (come on Brian-- I'm waiting for my Sgt Schultz M-hockey tshirts), and GO BLUE!
So, inasmuch as we can make fun of Michigan State fans traveling to a bowl -- I mean, at least they're going somewhere -- I thought I'd pass along this hilarity. Want to go to the bowl game, but just can't afford it? MSU Federal Credit Union (actually a great CU, the one I currently use even though I work for M) has a loan just for you! Because what we should be doing in this economy is taking out a loan to travel to another state and give them tons of business!
