ytMSU up 1-0 midway through the 2nd. Michigan starting a power play.
Friday Hockey @ MSU Open Thread
it's 1-0 state in the middle of the 2nd
Nothing's going our way tonight. Also, these refs are bad. They're not the reason we're down (we've gotten some bad calls our way too), but they do suck a lot.
What. A. Play. By Rust to set up that goal that was finished off by BORK!
UM on the PP, time winding down. Two Spartans chasing a puck out the left corner of their zone right in front of the blue line. Rust somehow grabs it from them before they get it out, flips it to someone else who sends it to Hagelin to bang it home.
Amazing play by Rust. Wow.
Rust pulls a pavel and pickpockets an assist
state needs to put palmisano in the game
Palmisano(sp) be in the net? These commentators seem pretty unbiased btw, when we are playing well they seem to love us but they are currently jizzing themselves over the state goalie
He's been exasperatingly good tonight.
"They're coming all over the ice."
"Someone says something about your mom, maybe the sisters come into the equation."
"Moms and dogs are off limits"
While I love Comley for his incompetence, when he inevitably gets canned, I'm not going to miss his brand of trap hockey. It's just awful.
Been waiting for some hockey talk to take refuge in. Not sure if this made it elsewhere on the site, and got buried, but if so I don't mind repeating good news.
not sure on the quality of that league, but i won't say no to 1+ ppg. anyone know anything about this kid/the league he plays in?
Oh my gosh, great news. Thanks so much. If I could +1, I would, indefinitely
Spartan Bob in the building? that buzzer went off a second early. Not that it made a big deal.
I know if I yelled "ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??" at the ref when I played hockey, I would get more than just a nasty look. I dunno what that was, but that shouldve been an unsportsmanlike for sure. Anyone else hear it? Whiny asshole knows he hauled Carl down, latched on his leg
Refs tend to be fairly lenient about that kind of thing at the higher levels.
To me, hockey players are tough as nails to each other, but silent and stoic when dealing with refs. That's what a captain's like. I hate watching and playing hockey with people who are playing relatively tough and then open their mouths and a 12 year olds voice comes out and says HEYYY CMON REFFF HE TRIPPED ME. Not so tough.
... Just do it.
state tonight? I feel like anytime state is close to or makes a big play, the announcer freaks out, but when Hunwick has a great little section of two awesome saves, the announcers focuse on "OMG STATE TAKING SO MANY SHOTS"
Considering the pretty obvious talent disparity, State deserves plaudits for keeping this tied.
The pass-o-rama on the power play is getting old
Shawn Hunwick doesn't take shit from ANYONE!
Gazley gets in a fight with a GOALIE and then gets tackled by a REF HAHAHA. THIS is the pussy s*** I'm talking about, just play hockey, don't be a bitch. MSU hockey has always and will always be full of whiny ass bitches who cry when they don't score or when they get hit.
Hunwick is 5"6' and a goalie, and you just got laid out. Amazing. Looks over at the ref haha
Hunwick just made that MSU player his bitch. Absolutely decked him.
Spartan player slowly taking the puck into the zone on a PP, waits until his teammates go across the blue line, THEN tries to take it in. That's called offsides, son.
That was awesome, didn't even give him a chance to throw one.
Eeep, 5-on-3 goal makes it 2-1 stoners
Losing that draw.
on a bullshit 5-on-3. Shouldve been offsetting on that fight, or a penalty to them for unsportsmanlike and fighting a GOALIE.
But that was a bad goal too. Let's get it back.
This is some bullshit officiating in this here game.
This is some BULL FUCKING SHIT officiating in this here BULL FUCKING SHIT game.
2-1 flames end of the first of the wings game. Nothin like flippin between wings and Michigan hockey on a Friday.
Inexcusable d-zone turnover leads to a golden opportunity for MSU that they just couldn't bury, Hunwick comes up big again!
MSU has a lead in a game. What style of play will we see from them now?
goddammit wohlberg. stupid play.
that's a bs interference penalty, another 5-3
Ok, now the refs really ARE giving this one to MSU on a silver platter--another bullshit 5-on-3
How is Michigan down 2 players AGAIN!?
He played the puck and got pushed... garbage.
We're hurting ourselves enough on our own, we don't need the refs to pile on.
5 on 3 makes it a fair fight, I guess. Refs are giving the fans a good experience
State has had 8 penalties now to Michigan's 3. with two 5 on 3's
Not much time left now to have to come back from being down 2 against MSU's "bribe the refs" defense
if I'm berenson I'm complaining after the game. 5 of the 8 penalteis have been soft.
Nah, Red's not like that. He'll get after them about the stuff they CAN control and have them ready tomorrow to ream MSU at home.
What a joke. The worst was saving them 15 seconds of 5 on 3 time with the incidental contact in the crease.
maybe refs have a thing for guys wearing green:
sparty today, the sharks vs. the wings last playoff run...
can't stand that kind of bullcrap.
"Lot of home cookin' going on at Munn Arena tonight."
no we get a 5-3
Michigan 5-on-3 after one of the refs decided to check on the open thread
Two man advantage, now let's get a couple goals and demoralize them.
I am officially baffled.
They can take the names off of the ref's outfits but they are still bad. McInchak is one of them tonight.
Need more puck movement here, that guy up front blocked a shot and is now hurting.
need less than 10 touches prior to each shot
5 on 3 and you can't even break down the defense once.
one goal back
TAKE THAT SPARTAN PIGS
So...never mind about that last statement. 3-2 MSU
Didn't do it on the 5-on-3 but still took advantage of the 2nd penalty, we've got ourselves agame with exactly 3:00 to go, 3-2 Habitual Offenders
empty michigan net
43 seconds and a whistle. Here's hoping for a draw and a beatdown in Yost.
Goalie pulled, 6-on-5, about 40 seconds left, offensive zone faceoff for UM
everything about this game. I hate the fans, they don't know when or what to cheer, I hate their whininess, I hate the penalties, I hate the students, I hate that they are getting "back" at us for the big chill, I hate that we are losing to a 3-win team that is terrible, I hate Munn, I hate it all
Tie game, baby
AND I LOVE YOU
unless the refs somehow call this no goal, wouldn't be surprised.
It's OK. We got the tie, St8 is still in 10th place, Dantonio is still a crook. Nothing's changed.
Suck it refs!
1. MSU misses an easy chance to clear and UM gets it behind the net
3. MICHIGAN SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORES! 3-3!
their on fire freshman knocked it in for us.
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
Watching games at Munn makes me appreciate that we still have a pep band and not RAWK MUSIC at Yost
Just over the PA....I WANNA ROCK! RAWK!
Red wings are on! More hockey!
Munn is a terrible place to watch a hockey game. Saw a 1-1 tie there in 2006 I think. Couldn't even tell where the student section was. I'd be embarrassed if I were a Spartan, but then again that goes without saying...
If the refs job us here I am nuking East Lansing.
Actual conversation at the game:
Ref: How can we disallow this? We haven't screwed Michigan enough yet
Replay official: Let's say you were blowing your whistle in your mind
Comley: Did we lose yet? I don't understand the rules of this game
i'm not sure why the review is taking so long
The goal stands! Fuck yeah!
This mgotranscript is priceless, by the way
say that I feel bad for Krug being on such a bad team, and wish he were on our side. But that's not true, his name sounds perfect for state... Anyone else feel like they always have villianlike last names? And gross-ish sounding ones?
Krug... Jeff Lerg... Corey Tropp. They sound like names the Grinch would give his children
Two names from their roster that reminds me of hot buttered O's. Take a stick of butter, melt it down, pour in some Cheerios and bake for some amount of time. Hot buttered O's, also called Buttery Cheerios. How can I take state seriously when their team is composed of Buttery Chelios?
state will pry get a "make up call" in over time.
Do they have to play <Generic Rock Song> every single time there's stoppage in play?
Well shit, that blows goats
lovely from degrassi, and he's waving to the crowd
we'll take the game tomorrow
Of course, we would find a way to lose. Jesus Christ.
do we get any points for losing in ot?
no, i was thinking shootout, oops
We played like dogshit out there, and add to that the dogshit officiating, we were lucky to make it to OT.
Hogan due back? Not that the winning goal was Hunwick's fault.
I think it's a pulled groin and might be a little while
They said after the Big Chill it's a 5-6 week injury, I think.
The universe hates us.
We've all been very bad, and God is punishing us.
boo especially loud when the refs skate out. I know I will.
I don't know what it is, but there's something that just grates me to the core about losing to MSU in hockey. Such a garbage program, playing mindnumbingly boring hockey, with a coach one step above pee-wee competence...
I have no idea how they could ever bring in a recruit, especially an offensive-minded one. No wonder we reel in all the big fish.
Doesn't do shit to help us win on fridays, though. I guess the refs didn't help any, hey?
They don't deserve that, at all. Fuck. 2 of their 4 goals were on fucking 5-on-3s, go fig.
idk how to even be optimistic anymore about anything.
i know i'm going to get shit on for this and I don't fucking like it either but the wretched thought of dantonio saying "pride comes before the fall" keeps popping into my head as the shit keeps piling up. booo
that is all.
fuck that shit.
You know your team sucks at hockey right? Wrong sport to be bragging about these days son.
I'm pretty sure the whole world knows the 5-0 result was way closer to the truth than this BS tonight.
BTW, nice job with the dictionary words in your post. The obvious attempt to look educated enough to post on this board is flattering.
You ever notice that outside of the Midwest and Northeast, there are about four D-1 college hockey programs, and three of them are in Colorado?
he meant they obviously wouldn't care about it because they don't have teams in those areas. just like how the US doesnt follow soccer very closely, because we don't have the big leagues here.
And you contradicted yourself by mentioning the debate fucking team... you think people care about that? lolsparty
Have you noticed that outside of the Midwest that no one even knows what Michigan State is?
Michigan pulls in the ratings outside of the Midwest. St8 doesn't. This is the only important comparison in terms of "visibility" that truly matters.
I've been on a couple of interviews out here in New York over the years, and every time someone reads my resume, they note that I went to Michigan and then bring up a point about MSU being good at basketball. I'm sure they know it is another school, but academically the credentials just don't carry over.
So in this one glorious post by MetricSU, I learn about Michigan State's dominance in women's basketball, and that nobody cares about college hockey.
When Michigan makes the NCAA hockey tournament again this year and Michigan State misses the NCAA tournament again, will I get to see a billboard that says Michigan State 4, Michigan 3?
of his post to me. Downplaying UM's superiority in hockey due to a lack of support, while referencing women's basketball at the same time. Typical Sparty logic right there.
Ever notice how it's always ytMSU fans trolling on Michigan boards and not the other way around?
To your credit, you did mention the true power players in Women's Basketball. Noticably absent: ytMSU.
who has already stated that college hockey is irrelevant. If that is the case, than why exactly is he gloating about one win, by a lousy MSU team? Interesting dynamic there.
You're a Spartan?
Yeah...um, great points there. Just stop now. I was at MSU during the whole JLS era, when MSU couldn't beat anyone and had to rely on the greatest comeback in school history to beat a mediocre NW team. Just stop it - you have won 3 games in a row in football, yet haven't done much else beyond that. Somebody attached to the University feels the need to rent out multiple billboards trumpetting minor victories over UM and Wiscy. You sell freaking t-shirts in the gift shop after you beat UM. Those are not actions of a dominant program "bored" with a rivalry - they are of a program confident in the knowledge that the wins were a fluke and reality will soon set in (maybe the 42 point beating by Alabama is the start).
As for basketball - wonderful for you. MSU has been one of the best CBB programs since Izzo showed up. Of course, it looks like he might not stick around forever, and MSU has slipped a bit the past couple of years (and last year's run to the Final Four could have easily been stopped that first weekend with a missed 3 here or there). But whatever, I will concede that MSU has the better basektball program now.
Women's BB? Really?
MSU's hockey team is still in the dumps, and one upset won't change that. I much rather have UM's decades of dominance over MSU's, even given MSU's Ryan Miller-led upset for the NCAA title.
You do know that we owned you in football for the better part of 100 years right? Ok so you won 3 in a row. Congrats. Call me when it gets to 6. So it's getting boring huh? Well I hope you can take solice In the fact that it will no longer be boring the next time we beat you. I'm sure it Won't upset you at all for that reason. Jesus Christ you are so illogical it boggles the mind. I'd rather die and rot in hell than be an msu fan. Even if We only have hockey. You are disgusting human beings...period.
Go back to tRCMB. If we came there every time we had beat you in something in the history of sports your board would have nothing but posts about Michigan... oh wait.
Sir you do realize that we owned you in football for the better part of 100 years right. Ok so you're getting bored after 3 wins in a row? I hope you feel that way the next time we beat you. Instead of being upset you can Take solice inthe fact that it's not boring anymore. Jesus Christ just go die somewhere. You are so illogical it's not even worse the time. But I couldn't resist.
Jesus Christ just go die somewhere
Poor phrasing due to lack of comma, already happened.
but virtually all respected historians would agree that he at least existed as a historical person, and that there is roughly the same amount of evidence for his existance as there is for Julius Ceaser.
Swing and a miss!
I do not consider your kind to be my "brother." Blood relations are far too intimate for my taste. ytMSU is an embarrasment to the Big Ten. Way to put up those billboards sucking your own team's dick for beating Wisconsin and then getting blown out by 42 in your bowl game.
I was unaware of ytMSU's stunning dominance in Women's Basketball. Call me when you win 90 games in a row. THAT, my friend, is dominance. As for Men's Basketball, I understand St8's not doing too hot this year. Good luck maintaining your Tradition against a real powerhouse, like Duke. Oh wait, that game was played already and you LOST.
Looking forward to another 5-0 shutout in Yost tomorrow.
Groupthink--the primary product of Lansing.
By the way, you did not rebut my points, Mr. MSU-debate-is-amazing.
Jim Harbaugh's comments were about how football players are steered into programs that are tailor made for just getting the football players through school; ie, not what the overwhelming majority of students take.
The type of education one is recieves is dependant on three things.
1. Faculty: Michigan has a much larger endowment, and just recently was able to continue poaching away the top professors from the Ivy league. State just had to slash programs because they are in terrible shape financially. ADVANTAGE: Overwhelmingly Michigan.
2. Facilities: Again, due to the larger endowment and better financial situation, Michigan will always be able to outperform state in this capactiy. A recent visit to the MSU campus will tell just how bad the infestructure situation is at state. ADVANTAGE: Michigan
3. Quality of your peers: Michigan has the toughest admissions policy in the state, and will admit under 40% of applicants this year. In addition, 36% of UM students are out of state, despite OOS tuition being over 50k. By contrast, MSU is 94% instate (ie, no one outside of michigan thinks it is worth attending) and their admissions rate is over 70%. Getting into state is literally a joke. Michigan's ACT range was 28-32, while State's was 24-28.
Oh, and every single ranking out there will give Michigan the advantage by a huge margin over state, but why let facts and statistics get in the way of letting this tool think that State is even remotely comparable?
Michigan's East Coast ties were born in the 1920s and 1930s, when the Ivies had quotas on Jewish students and Michigan didn't. They came in droves to Michigan to get a great education. It's not Michigan's fault they were in the right place at the right time. Painting them all as "spoiled" is ignorant, prejudiced, and more than a little sour-grapes. Not to mention calling Michigan a sinkhole for precious resources is more than a little stupid as well. Is the demand for ski masks, couches, and Keystone Light truly that great? Is Michigan starving ytMSU of resources? Are your students passing out from malnutrition in your classrooms?
Go ahead and say inane things like "Studies have shown there is little difference between first and second tier universities." Don't know about you but I would much rather go to Yale Medical School than East Lansing Clown U. for my education. If you're trying to paint ytMSU as some sort of paragon of virtue for the underachieving students of Michigan, you are greatly mistaken.
Seriously. Go back to RCMB. We don't serve your kind here.
Michigan admits East Coast kids in large numbers. Many of these students started arriving in the 1920s and 1930s, when racial quotas in East Coast schools prevented Jews from enrolling there.
You called them "spoiled rich kids from the east coast." I'm sure there are plenty of non-Jewish students who come from the east coast but painting them all as "spoiled rich kids" is an insult to Michigan's relationship with its east coast students. The facts are all out on Wikipedia. Look them up.
Personally, I could not care less about ytMSU. They can do their thing, and we can do our thing, except for playing in the same athletic conference. But I'm not the one trolling on another message board, the morning after a tainted 4-3 OT victory for a tenth-place CCHA team. Pathetic.
Summary of previous post:
ytMSU =/= Michigan's "Brother"
ytMSU =/= Top B1G Team. Supporting evidence:
- Fan, not connected to university, feels need to put up billboard describing victory over co-champion.
- Blowout losses to 9-3 Alabama teams
- Generally poor postseason record. Previous bowl win was 2001, 44-35, vs. Fresno State.
- 2010 was only the 4th season ytMSU got >10 wins in a season.
ytMSU =/= Top Women's Basketball Program
- UConn was/is the premier women's hoops program in country, with a 90-game record win streak. ytMSU does not come close.
- No one cares about Women's Basketball outside of the Big East.
ytMSU's Men's Basketball program is not doing well this year.
- 12-4 record, with losses to #1 Duke, #7 Syracuse, #22 Conneticut, and UConn
- Struggled to beat Oakland, likely to make NIT but Izzo's long flirtation with the NBA in the offseason appears to have damaged his credibility with the program as an alleged "lifer" at ytMSU. Probably will be eliminated in round 2-3.
- Michigan's men's basketball record is 12-4 so far this year, and the program is improving steadily from year-to-year after the Fab Five armageddon.
ytMSU Hockey = Suck
- 10th place in CCHA
- 2010 record 8-11-3 to date
Michigan Education >>>>>>>> ytMSU education
- Harbaugh is a bad example for you to use. When a ytMSU ex-player turns a 1-10 program into a Top 10 team with NFL teams breaking down his door for him to coach them, then you can talk smack about Michigan academics or athletics all you want.
- I'm not trolling on an ytMSU board. That would just be sad.
The bottom line is that MSU has decades, literally decades, of success to go before they could ever be reasonably considered on the same level as Michigan. This is true both in athletics and academics.
Michigan would have to continually go down hill for 50 years with MSU being amazing for you guys to become the premier anything in the state.
Instead you are one year removed from losing to Central Michigan in football and you are on here acting like people care about you at all outside of the Wolverine state.
All I can say it live it up while you can. Soak up every drop. You'll need it to keep you warm at night in the near future.
Tonight at Munn after MSU went up 3-1, I had a typical State frat boy turn around and make a motion that one can only describe as "masturbatory."
Typical class from MSU. It's words and actions from them, that are spouted off on a daily basis, that make me proud to be an Alumnus of The University of Michigan. The behavior of MSU fans is among the most disturbing and embarrassing I have ever seen, and it's a wonder anyone can be proud of an institution and a fanbase like that.
Enjoy finishing at the bottom of the CCHA!
I remember ytMSU players breaking into dorms wearing ski masks and assaulting fellow students and atheletes...or did Saint Dantonio wipe that memory out of your brain as well?
If you don't like what we're saying about ytMSU, GO TO YOUR OWN FAN PAGE. THIS IS A MICHIGAN FAN PAGE FOR A REASON.
Here's another little incident that may have slipped your mind. Academics and facilities may be irrelevant to you but I sure don't like living at places that riot. But that's just me as a stupid, ignorant Wolverine.
So by your logic, it's okay to assault fellow students as long as they don't wear ski masks. Not buying your argument champ.
Being a fan of U-M means being part of the best university in the Big Ten and enjoying all the rights and privileges therein, no more, no less. Sorry that you can't be part of the Michigan Family. Enjoy your shiny UC Berkeley diploma. I hear they had some trouble with riots way back when. Guess the love for rioting runs in the ytMSU bloodline.
Nice try trotting out the Walmart Wolveirnes argument. That meme got old back in 1992. If you could read, you could see that my tagline clearly says "Michigan Class of 2010."
I personally do not have a problem with fans not going to this university or that and still rooting for their sports teams. Michigan has a national--nay, international--following. Many of them are grads. Many more are not. Some of the best MGoBoard posters did not go to Michigan but have family or cultural ties to the school. I treat them just the same as anybody else.
Ironic that ytMSU is now being more selective about those who are worthy to root for her storied athletic and academic traditions. Now who's putting on airs?
You're welcome to be proud of "your" university (funny how you insult Michigan fans who never went there, but then claim allegiance to MSU), but you say it as if it'll be embraced here. No one cares, go troll elsewhere.
