Faceoff in their end.
GLI Championship open thread: UM vs. MSU
bout time we get one of these OT games
Goooaaalllll!!!!!!!! GLI Champs!!!!!!
We did it!
TWICE FOR EMPHASIS?!
GLI Champs baby!
I love beating FYS
3-2, Clare gets the winner!!!
47 to 25 in our favor.
15th GLI championship
GOAL! Clare from Moffie!
Woot!!! We can keep the 2011 up on the GLI banner in Yost. (They mistakenly put up 2011 on the banner in the offseason instead of 2010..)
What a pretty passing play from a couple of defenders! WOOO
Absolute great weekend for the boys. Knocking off both #3 and #14 in back-to-back nights.
Wohlberg, Treais, and Clare.
Clare is also MVP.
@Cap'n Blue, thanks for the links. Great game and good to see us online, even if we should have bumped the pistons off of FSN
of stating the obvious, it is SO much better to be a Wolverine than a Sparty.
Don't know/care how it is to be a Spartan, but I can confirm that it is Great To Be a Michigan Wolverine!
I can only imagine that is what it is like in Spartyland. Waiting for the promiseland but knowing you may never reach it til the world ends.
anyone capture the game on torrent for mgovideo?
both the Detroit Pistons and Red Wings had games tonight, so our game was not broadcast on TV. I've pinged FSD's Twitter account to see they even recorded it, and if they would air a re-play of the game. Cross your fingers.
nice. thanks for the help. did you get the michigan/bc game from last night?
What a game... Awesome seeing spartys disappointed.
I was at the game tonight. Great game, great win, but whoever decides MVP needs new medication.
How can Clare be the MVP over Palmisano? Dislike FYS as much as the next guy, but only reason State was in championship game and note blown out was Palmisano. He made over 40 saves each night.
Although Clare had the game winner, its not like he stood out otherwise over the weekend.
Beat the number 3 team in the country and Sparty for the championship. I'd say tourney was a success. Made me feel a hell of a lot better about hockey than just a couple of days ago.
We can still make the tournament! Hope springs eternal.
Can anyone with better knowledge about the national college hockey landscape than myself tell us what this weekend has done for our tourney chances? How close would we be to being in if the season ended today?
Unlike other sports, the NCAA Hockey Committee has an open selection process--no smoke-filled rooms for the selection of the at-large teams. Their selection rules are replicated by something called the Pairwise Ratings:
If the season ended today, and assuming no major upsets in the conference tournaments...
#1 seeds: Ohio State, Minnesota-Duluth, Boston College, Minnesota
#2 seeds: Boston University, Notre Dame, Merrimack, Massachusetts-Lowell
#3 seeds: Northern Michigan, Michigan State, Colgate, Western Michigan
#4 seeds: Michigan, Cornell, Lake Superior, AHA tournament champion (Air Force?)
Notice that there are 7 CCHA teams that would qualify right now. Since there are no non-conference games remaining in the CCHA, these 7 teams will start knocking each other out of the top 16 and we will probably be left with only 5 or so teams in the tournament. The key for Michigan will be to make sure that they beat the teams near them in the standings--next weekend's series against Lake Superior, plus series against MSU and Northern on back-to-back weekends in mid-February are the key games on the schedule.
I do hope FSD replays it sometime this weekend. I can't imagine that they wouldn't.
I was at both games; best GLI I've seen in a long, long time. FSD NEEDS to replay this game!
