JUST US!?!?!?!? that has to be a call on both guys, this is such terrible officiating..
Michigan Hockey NCAA Tourney vs. Miami Open Thread
like Crosby out there. Great embellishment
No need for that
Oh God, another penalty after the whistle
that is all.
Why do we insist on hitting after the whistle?
Oh my god. Who saw that guys mustache
christ thats a terrible penalty to take
can't take stupid fucking penalties like that when you are trying to get to the frozen four. completely unnecessary
I say this a lot, but I could honestly do a better color and pbp job than these hacks
ESPNU's TV guys need to be beenverified.com
Pete Twinkle and Greg Stink must have been otherwise busy.....
COULD BE ANYONE....." www.beenverified.com sounds like a quality product as well. Solid advertising yet again ESPNU
STUPID STUPID STUPID
You can run background checks on yourself? Now I can find out what arbitrary felonies I have outstanding.
laughing about not getting called you know that it's bs. Should have been a minor on both teams...
And the color guy just called him out for totally diving. Not that it helps anything though. I think he would have fallen over if my dead Grandma tapped him on the back. Wuss.
STOP TAKING STUPID FUCKING PENALTIES.
God Sorry needed to rant.
Probably should have been coincidental minors, but of course it isn't. Great dive if anything.
Gets us a penalty but shoving a guy into his bench and attempting to push him over doesn't.
This is ridiculous. I cannot STAND this crap. Big Ten Hockey Conference please.
Big Ten hockey conference would improve national officiating?
It will likely lead to paid referees who don't show up on the weekends and screw us out of hockey games. No guarantee I guess, but I am relatively confident that the Big Ten would do a far better job zebra hunting than the CCHA.
Tapped on the back and he falls down like he got shot...
Wait wait wait, Miami wants to go back to the Frozen Four?
call ever ref
put away your lipstick
Seriously, I think what happened is that every school contributes $X to some big referee party fund to keep the refs happy... Michigan's being ethical this year and refused to contribute... refs have decided they hate Michigan.
Hunwick run again.
You got 0.5 sec left... let the damn period end...
Ref 1: "Shit, Miami won't get a shot on this PP before the period ends!"
Ref 2: "BLOW THE WHISTLE! GIVE THEM A FACEOFF!"
What conference supplied the refs to this game?
Hate to say it. Not the refs fault. They are calling it close and we just can't seem to adjust.
You don't get negbanged because you are right on half your post: we can't adjust.
But are we watching the same game? Did you see the check into our bench? FROM BEHIND. BOARDING. No call.
Did you see the Miami players on the bench taking shots at our skaters alongside the boards?
Did you see the fact that they are referees and thus they inherently SUCK?
I've seen a closely called game and agree with many but not all the calls. I prefer a game where they let them play better as do most but do we want to win or not.
As I said, Michigan needs to ADJUST.
But there is plenty of room to accuse bias when obvious calls are being missed in front of referees- all disadvantaging Michigan. I'm not complaining about "ticky tack" penalties being called on us- I'm complaining about obvious calls not being made on them.
If I hear "parade to the penalty box" one more time, I am going to bust my fucking tv...
If those fans are drinking every time they hear Rico Blase, I'm sure they're plenty "refreshed".
yes... they're called the sorority slut.
I thought it was a joke.
I honestly never thought I'd feel this way... but after watching 2 periods of these hack officials, I miss shegos... at least with shegos its shitty all around... I'd be amazed if one of these refs wasn't a miami grad
Tied 2-2 after 2 periods, while playing 5 on 9
How can anyone support MySchoolNow when it keeps nice ladies like that out of our classrooms?
Meh... just cute maybe?
I'm too old to comment.
this has been terrible reffing. we really need to regroup and come out strong in the third
we need to score more goals, and play better defense.
/dick vitale analysis
Exec 1: "We have very little advertising money and need to reach the largest audience we can if we want verifiedcatonlinecolleges.com to succeed."
Exec 2: "Let's put our ad on ESPNU!"
Love playoff hockey. Just like NHL playoffs. Everybody goes full speed all the time all game. Love it.
I don't get why Sean Ritchlin is such a dope. Did he not win two national championships at Michigan? Is he just overcompensating in trying to remove bias?
We need Rico Blase-cam.
of the Herbstreits.
What if it were YOU
Getting screwed in this game?
If it were you in that box it wouldn't be funny at all.
Trying to get those college seniors hooked.
Not sure why Sean picked against his alma mater.
I'd be embarrassed if I were a ref and fell for that last dive. We need Mickey Redmond's incredulous silence here.
record is for most posts in a single MGoBoard thread? We gotta be getting close.
thought it was like 440. these hockey threads have been close the last few weeks.
I don't see a bunch of seniors watching college hockey, but what do I know.
you may know me as Hollywood star Will Ferrel.
that they're going to throw up their dinner? Nothing like playoff hockey!
but I'm chain-smoking heaters like it's going out of style. my lungs take a beating during the NCAA tourney and the Stanley Cup Playoffs
Love the intense level of play, hate the ticky-tack crap calls.
I'm new with ESPNU. Is there a reason this game is not broadcasting in HD? At least it isn't on Cablevision.
Space is really big... we should know. We go there three at a time, in motherfucking space. Which pwns your ass.
Space bitches, space.
1) let them play
2) lay off the lipstick calls.
this guy yet?
3) Get off your knees. You're blowing the game.
Time for Cap to snipe a goal.
Red is intense!
I love that Red calls Hunwick "Hunny."
I call Rico Blase "sweetheart"
I don't buy Red wanting to give much time to the tv crew.
You only owe $5,772! and good luck buying a car...
Dean Lombardi can suck me
Terrible ice is terrible.
I am tired of these weak ass calls
He had one hand on the guy as he lost his balance... shit.
FUCK THESE REFS
Wow. They called one on Miami.
Rico Blase #6, everyone take a drink.
The game is not about you.
I would love to see like 3 min of continuous 5 on 5 play
Regardless of the outcome--these refs need to get some whistle up that ass.
I don't think a whistle is big enough to inflict the pain that they deserve for the awful job they have done tonight. I'm thinking something more like a goalie stick....
is that "Psycho" like whistling?
It's the same as the goalie slapping the ice with his paddle.
We're heard it a LOT tonight.
but not close enough.
getting a head of myself with 16 min left, but is it OT till a goal? shootout? anyone know?
Continuous 20 minute sudden-death OT
thanks. I love that the NHL lets them play hockey to decide playoff games, glad to see the NCAA does the same. When they said the olympics do a shootout, i thought they had to be kidding
THEY BETTER REVIEW THAT SHIT
Edit: Good they are reviewing, but no goal
Send it to the booth!
Also, Rico Blase sucks.
How many penalty-free minutes have there been in this game? Ten?
What does everyone think the outcome will be??
5-4 Michigan in OT
How much 5-5 time has there been?
I don't know.
Isn't that a goal? Didn't it go over the line?
But we get the power play regardless.
Until the next penalty
that was close, no goal, didnt look like it crossed the line to me. powerplay coming up
3 or 4 great chances so far this period. Gotta have one. PP
PP but the refs are ruining this game
LET THEM PLAY
Blehhhhh how did that not go in!
Yeah, that's out. At least they called the hit after the whistle.
Red Hots had the momentum but we got it back.
Where was that quick whistle for the last goal??
I don't understand how the announcer just called that a cross-check. Really? A shove down after the whistle is a cross-check now?
Both goalies are hot tonight.
what is the score?
Never established anything
We're not winning battles on the boards.
I'm beginning to be creeped out by the number of times the announcers have called players "good looking"
he was in the bathroom between periods - with a "wide" stance
I think the play-by-play guy has the hots for some of the Miami guys. He has repeatedly commented how good their players look.
They're so red hot he just wants to look at them.
Largest MGoBoard thread Eva!!
Is it just me or are there tons of commercials on ESPNU?
Apparently they are catering to the feline demographic.
They're doing commercials in 4 minute intervals instead of 5...assholes.
Everyone is coming out of the wood work because we are good at something again...
So the general theme of ESPNU's advertising strategy is to have commercials for as many types of scams/credit destroyers as possible. Am I right?
our legs are getting a little heavy, but that may be due to the 95% of time we'd been on special teams... less penalty time either way would let us get Scooter and the 4th line out there for some "energy shifts"
A lot of low grade commercials
Can't wait to see how many points there are when we turn it around in Football.
How much time is left?
13 and counting
Hunwick's zubaz pads are brutal.
I almost shit when Hunwick went own
some people have made MGoPoint careers tonight...
Just wanted in on this monster thread. Pile jumping.
we gotta get MEAN!
It's a bold strategy, Cotton, let's see if it pays off
I'm starting to think that they just like saying Flower Mound.
And Sean Richlin, the starting goalie for your alma mater just had his head driven into the crossbar. Don't chuckle you traitorous son of a bitch.
in between commercials
Hagelin beautiful setup to Rust.... damn goalie in good position.
This game has no flow and the NCAA's decision to go with basketball TV timeout rules (every four minutes!!!) is killing me.
Thank God it has an arched design.
Every time this commercial comes on I just wish I had a cat who could enjoy it with me.
I just want to know why I get two.
The comments on the justin.tv stream are just overflowing with maturity.
my soul dong has its hopes at 12 o'clock.
Sick of that stupid commercial....do they think they will sell alot of them to the audience that is watching this game or what? Somehow I believe no...
MGoBlog does love kittens, they know their audience.
I miss the commercial for the automatic cat litter machine. I always wanted to see a cat get stuck in that thing.
The animation of the nail trimmer cutting the nail too close makes me cringe every time. They do the same thing in the pedipaws ads.
I minimized the comments on Justin Tv when they started talking about Tigers Baseball.
and seriously, what fan base has needed more kittens in the last two years? I call it inspired advertising.
Does someone know for a fact the BCS post was the longest?
And we're not counting Brian's posts, are we? Because I remember that "can't hear the Marching Band fight" went on forever....
Someday I might get pretty good at this computer stuff.
I just looked up Hunwick on beenverified.com. Total fraud. His real name is "A. Brick Wall"
Miami's Dmen are so aggressive in the offensive zone.... Red needs to take advantage of that.
I have never seen this many CALLED hand passes in one game.
get your hand off the puck
We seem pretty tired
Momentum going the wrong way.
That was an amazing jump. He seriously probably has a 3' vertical. In pads.
We are starting to play in our end a little too much for my weak heart and thick arteries.
We're spending way too much time in our own zone. Pit in stomach rising
I'm getting the sense Miami wants this thing...
But we are looking a little tired and slow.
We need to start hitting them to slow them down a little bit.
Might be saving it for a late icing or if we get down by a goal
I really thought karma would set in when he said "you just have a feeling Miami will score here."
during this timeout
Who the fuck would spend $.99 for an answer
T V timeout is welcome. We are playing tired.
Five bucks says that clown holds a degree from Ohio State.
They can control it all night as long as we get the next goal
Game has definitely slowed down. Miami is playing this their way while we're tired.
Thank goodness for the commercial break...
That was a penalty from Wohlberg the first 50 minutes.
Love that Llewellyn just wrecked that guy.
How young is too young for a heart attack?
According to ESPNU market research, the people who will watch this game are internet-impaired, shut-ins who have cats and lots of debt? Amazing how they nailed my demographic spot-on.
The question is. Do you like peanuts with sea salt and olive oil?
That was a generous faceoff whistle.
it's like the ref knew a commercial was coming..
I wish it had been that fast on Miami's second goal.
Rudy is on CMT.
It's think it's sooooo inspirational.
My hands are shaking.
It's every four minutes, like basketball. God knows why that's the case, as hockey's enjoyability is all about flow and this KILLS it.
If it kills Miami's momentum and gets our guys some rest, I'm all for it.
Miami is doing a good job of keeping it in our zone. We do look a little tired, but when we get the puck, our players have a little bit more jump.
Where was the trip there? I have a feeling whoever gets a powerplay first is gonna win this...
this has got to take the cake on most replies on one thread ever
Holy balls, my heart just stopped.
We can't win a face off!!
Well, time to change my pants I guess.
For shitting himself.
Ah, Tourney hockey...
This has to stop NOW!
Review will show conclusively that didn't go in, but close
We're winning. Done--no way we lose after that shit.
Watch the refs give this away. They are so terrible they might.
Hunwick and friends
Nice job by Llewelyn keeping that guy's stick off the ice.
Hit pipe and came out.
Pretty solid eephus comment.
That is all.
Goal post shots are even now
that takes a team of Bill James statisticians to accumulate.
How many great chances is Wholberg going to get and not score? He really deserves the GWG...
Yes! Penalty on Miami!
Powerplay coming up!!!!!
Here we go boys, let's finish this off.
Good time for a power play!
Come on. It ends NOW.
YES WIN THIS!
Oh man, we need this.
We get a PP with 1:44 left? Who kidnapped the ref from the 2nd period and replaced him with Old Piotrowski?
Time to dig deep MICHIGAN!
Let's go Blue - buck 40 left!!
Red's looking a little... red...
Let's get it here!!
Michigan powerplay. This is it, boys.
I'm shitting my pants right now.
No mistakes, no giving breaks. Take it nice and easy and get the goal (Preferably in the last ten seconds).
Let's come home boys!!
Not a good start.
And here comes OT...
And why not.
Time to get that seventh wind
Get a drink, change your underwear and pop some Xanax, we're going to OT
This is the most ridiculous game of hockey ever.
That was not a good PP.
Ginger kids have no souls.
Hunwick has air beads in his pads
Fact: Your head weighs 10 lbs
so I'm way behind and thinking I will get online real fast to find out the score... not about to read through this mega thread so I will wait patiently for someone to update.
Tied at 2, we're going to OT right now. Sudden death, 20 minutes. If you wanna watch, check out this feed: http://www.justin.tv/hockeyfor2day01#r=9FGbO3o~
2-2 after 3, going to OT. Michigan starts OT on the PP for ~15 seconds. We're looking a bit tired after spending most of the last 5-10 minutes stuck in our zone. Miami had a fluky backhand go off our post.
who would've thought this possible four weeks ago? Time for a miracle finish to put us in the Frozen Four!
This man slays me.
Time for a Bud - what else are you boys drinking?
10.5% ABV beer.... now moving to something lighter... Sam Adams Irish red.
But I have to now and it will be a Yards.
Sam Adams Cherry Wheat - Made with real Michigan cherries
This game wasn't enough of a challenge to my heart...
My heart is jumping out of my chest. I'm getting an ulcer.
They must want this thread to be longer.
My heart didn't though. It may not take it.
I mean, this is gettinnnnnnnuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhgddxhjjjbhii...
Weak ESPN commercial.
Ro-Tel and Barbasol commercials?
Hey my dog just peed on the floor right in front of me. I guess she's nervous too
Man, these losers can't even improvise an intermission?
a Wild Boar for the intermission. Not a big fan of flavored beer but this one hits the spot.
There can be only one.
I hate to admit it but MGD in cans.
is doomed - sorry coach
Also, toasting in an epic bread.
You're STUCK on a treadmill, and you're going NOWHERE!
Maybe I want to take 33 years to pay it off.
You're stuck on a treadmill! That sounds like fun.
Was he starksy or hutch?
back on the treadmill
Wow. An HP commercial. That's a big time outlier.
Wait, you can print... WIRELESS?!? What is this demon technology?
Holy Crap I can't believe Darryl Strawberry is throwing himself under the bus. He's totally going to get fired.....wait, wrong thread. Overtime, time to refuel with some 312.
we get to lengthen the longest thread ever. Tack on the minimum of 75 "WOOOOOOO" or "fuckfuckfuckfuck" comments at the end of the game, and we're looking at a significant number.
Glad HP is using Murray from Flight of the Conchords.
still scares me
safe place safe place
who wears a PINK striped tie to a hockey game if you are not Don Cherry?
Holden appears to have cholera on my tv. Must have to adjust the color settings.
Sean Ritchlin is in the Michigan dressing room trying to make up for picking against Michigan
Quite a lengthy thread you all have been building here. Congrats to all. Let's go Blue!
I could have been looking at porn during the OT intermission?
could that Amazon "swoosh" logo be any more phallic?
I have no beer and I'm afraid if I run out to get beer, the game will have started again :(
TomVH went to pick up a pizza and the Wings scored 4 goals.
I love Burkie too but is anyone else getting sick of this story for someone who didn't even play on the team?
Didn't we already see this? Couldn't someone just call Mickey Redmond and let him rant about the officiating for 20 minutes?
Is your mortgage payment higher than you can afford?
How about don't buy a house you can't afford asshole.
this is how the Skynet was born.
