Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
#3 Michigan Hockey vs. #4 Ferris State open thread
let's get after 'em
It'll be interesting to see if they're all hype or not. Will also be interesting to see how former CCHA teams do without B1G members filling their arenas. M by 3.
ive seen this season! I believe i saw that it is on Fox Sports Atlantic for those outside of the FSD+ footprint. Go Blue!
Me too. Headed there soon. Go Blue
great belated birthday present to Coach! Go Blue!
Right at the beginning of finals week! Really?!?! Wont be surprised if student section is not full
50,000 students. I'm sure there will be those who are done with finals, those who priortizie hockey over a final, and those who use this as a stress relief. It does help that this is a top 5 matchup.
but I remember some of the crazy games I went to in school
any live streams gonna be up tonight?
Those have always worked for. Just follow the instructions on page 1 about doing the streamtorrent stuff.
cheer hard for me. Go blue
Should be a good game. Actually, if you follow Michigan hockey, this is your last chance to get a fix until after Christmas, if I am not mistaken, so turn out - either in person or in spirit - and support the Wolverines.
Incidentally, Massy predicts a tossup basically - 51% esitmated win probability for Ferris State with a predicted tie actually. Interesting indeed.
The GLI is December 26th and 27th. After the GLI we're off until a two game series in Madison January 10th and 11th, then off again until January 23rd.
WCBN, the student radio station, is broadcasting here. We are biased as hell and the best broadcast you'll get tonight.
In Goal- Junior CJ Motte (brother of Tyler) 2.31 GAA and .925 save percentage. Is playing better lately after a slow start.
Scoring- Sophomore Matt Robertson has goals in 7 straight games. Senior Garrett Thompson leads the team with 20 pts. (9G, 11A). Although Ferris seems to have pretty balanced scoring with 9 players in double digit points through 17 games.
Defense- Senior Scott Czarnowczan (Captain) is an offensive puck moving defenseman who can score (4G, 10A). Junior Jason Binkley is a more physical defenseman who has 15 pts to go along with 31 PIMS.
Recently Ferris has been giving up a lot of shots, but not so much "quality scoring chances" it will be important Michigan gets into scoring areas and creates traffic to disrupt Motte.
EDIT: CJ Motte is Junior (corrected)
Get the job done boys! I sense a shutout...

Let's Go Blue! Beat FSU!
Ferris' jerseys are just so plain and blah. Should really use the Bulldog head instead of the script "Ferris State"
Just block letters now.
1) Tyler Motte just sprayed his brother (the Ferris goalie)
2) stands look pretty empty on TV but we can hear the students.
ARGH, turnover! Phew, post!
Uh-oh, Copp slow to get up. Hope he's OK.
Dammit, they score. 1-0 them.
Serville misplayed and Ferris walked in for an easy goal 0-1 Ferris leads
1-1 Copp with a goal
1-1. Copp tried to center it from behind the net and it bounced off a Ferris defenders skate and in.
Copp. 1-1 now.
Michigan scores 1-1.
Copp off an FSU player!
1-1! Copp!!!! 9th goal of season for Copp
ZBB = Drink!
You just suck! You just suck!
Ref: "You gotta move it, you're not getting a whistle, buddy!"
Is anyone else seeing some FSD transmission breakups?
Way too many turnovers for Michigan in the neutral and the D-Zone. They need to tighten up, because this game could easily be 4-1.
Ferris is getting a ton of shots. nagelvoort is keeping us in the game. Need more offensive chances or we'll be in trouble.
...with the large section of good seats being unoccupied?
It's a Wednesday night game during finals week. Who decided to schedule this I have no idea.
DIE ZBB, DIE!!!!!!
Is there anyone who knows how many Grammy awards they have won?
For the Zac Brown Band.
They have an album. It won a Grammy.
EDIT: You guys beat me to it.
