the other one was getting too long
Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
About time for Chris Brown to rip one
Do you mean fart?
And yes, I am five years old.
Sunday is a new day. Thanks.
Gonna have a heart attack over here.
I had an energy drink earlier plus the immense stress from the game has me completey on edge. I really do feel like I'm going to have a heart attack.
I'll be here in the fetal position if you need me
COME ON!!!!!!!!! That's my analysis.
three doubles in a row on Friday nite?
That goal was freakininininini SICK!!!!! #TeamEffort
How is this Off Topic?
SORRY I MAKE JOKES WHEN IM ON THE BRINK OF DEATH
soo disappointed cause MIchigan just simply can't take adv on PPs...not even 5-3... Let's win this, need to go to bed before 12AM..lol
I do love playoff hockey, even though this one is going to be like...painful to watch because we'll all be in the fetal position...I do like playoff hockey.
A goal was scored in the first two minutes of 2 of the 3 periods.
Money says this one gets settled fast
Who is the guy doing the play-by-play on this game? It's the same guy who does the CCHA videos on youtube. Who is he? Where'd he come from?
Ben Holden. Been doing college games for 5-6 years at least. Hes from MI. Started out on Comcast Local, went to FSD, called some Ohio local and AHL games until he came back to MI a few months ago
Ben Holden. He's a Michigan-based broadcaster, does most of the FSD stuff. Color guy is Sean Ritchelin, 96 and 98 national champion.
Ben Holden. He's from Holt, Michigan. Currently lives in South Lyon. /creep
all right, who didn't close their bold tag?
this is hard to not die on every cornell possession
Close your tags if you absolutely need to write something in bold please.
End this quickly!!!
That pass through the crease gave me a flashback of UMD. Mirror-image of it
The hockey gods hate us.
If our guys would have gived a fuck in the first two periods we wouldn't have lost.
Well Shawn, thanks for playing with us
It's a damn shame his career ends like that
PP killed us all year.
Well we did win this in regulation but whatever back to football recruiting.
Merrill overcommitted and made that a 2 on 1 and then didn't recover to get the trailer. Worst game of his career by a huge margin.
That was Moffatt that was "defending" the trailer. He looked completely lost.
Yeah, the forwards did not exactly do their jobs either, but Merrill did nothing to get back in the play after overcommitting and he was shit all night.
And the agony
Hunwick didn't play a terrible game, but you don't put in a game like that and still make it to the Hobey Hat Trick.
What a joke. I'm just pissed. We let up-and-comers jump on us all the time. Learn to close and play like a 1 seed
There's a reason Brian calls it weighted Plinko. It's not even really weighted. Any single hockey game is so overwhelmingly controlled by random bounces, a bizarrely hot goalie (the Air Force game), officiating gaffes (two years ago vs. Miami, the second goal tonight), people having the worst game of their career (Merill tonight, Sauer vs. ND in '08 when we had the best team), that this shit is just random. So under the current format, even if you assume we're the best team every year, you've got no more than like a 15% shot at the title (if you think every game is 60-40 in our favor it would be 13%). It'd be nice if we were a bit luckier (like last year's title would have been had we scored the OT goal), but there's not a lot you can do.
EDIT: Though the PP has been bad for a few years now, we should get that fixed and that you can put on the staff.
I think if we could play 3 or 5 game series, the tournaments would be totally different. Not only is a 1 game playoff random, but I feel like it makes teams play really up tight knowing that any mistake could cost you the game. Teams would play a lot looser in a 3 or 5 game series
Absolutely, I think they used to, too. Pretty sure the famous Cornell series that really triggered Yost's insanity was a best of three in Ann Arbor. And there's a week off between the regionals and Frozen Four, so at the very least could make it best of three those consecutive weekends and a single elim Frozen Four. Don't encoach on extra class time or extend the season.
hey thats what happens when you post previews on the main page for second round oponents..
This one is going to sting for a while....I feel so bad for Shawn
At some point you have to ask why this happens more years than not. Why Red can't motivate this team to make it past the first round. Yes, two Frozen Fours in the last 5 years, that's great, but those are heavily outweighed by a mountain of complete chokejob performances in this tournament. It's maddening.
There's no denying Red is a legendary coach. 22 straight years in the tournament is unreal and it shows unbelievable consistency
But I'd have to agree, we're soft in the tournament. Since I've followed Michigan, we lost as the #1 overall in the semi's to ND when Sauer melted down, lost to AFA as a 1 seed in the 1st round, rode Hunwick to a frozen four appearance*, rode Hunwick to a title game appearance, and then totally sleepwalked through a game against a 4 SEED, ECAC TEAM. as a 1 seed. Pull it together and play like the best program in college hockey
