I have to get up at 6:00 tomorrow. But I can't miss this.
Michigan Hockey NCAA Tourney vs. Miami Open Thread
As if you're going to fall asleep anyways
And now 2OT. Eventually I might be able to work on my homework.
2OT?????????? How the fuck am I supposed to watch?
Eyes on the screen, pants on the ground.
Also, consider an oxygen mask. I find myself blacking out from not breathing.
Who has the stronger legs/lungs??
OOOOHHH MYYYYY GOOODDDDDDDD
Getting...... Tired..... Don't.... Know..... How.... Much.... More.....
You are not a human being.
miami doesn't deserve the break
I hope the players put that crap behind them cuz I sure as hell haven't
Announcers are cramping up??????
is a bitch like that.
We have done it. The thread is now self-aware. It just suggested three synonyms for thread.
Over 1,000 posts... we are through the looking glass people.
I'm running low on bourbon!!
After all this, it needs to end in our favor.
College? In pajamas? For reals?
I need a drink or six.
I'm gonna throw up if I have to see the replay of that goal again... how the hell do you call that off. Effing bullshit. Still. Gotta pull this off.
Thread has reached self sufficient status
Time for another six-pack of Bud!!!
This is exhausting - can only imagine how the players feel
Wow, over 1000 posts. Anyone know what the record is?
This is the record.
You're looking at it, pal.
fuck it. i'm watching.
If the next commercial is for Emery Kitty we score within 2 minutes of OT 2
I don't know what's worse, the officiating or these announcers. I like how a slash to the knee equals a player blowing a tire or someone being checked to the ice "losing an edge." If we lose Red is going to kill a zebra...
What the fuck was the 2nd stoppage for after the goal? A re-review? No volume here.
Where the faceoff was going to be located, as in who it went off of
Deflection review good sir. Trying to see where to drop the puck.
They were seeing where to place the faceoff because the Miami put the puck out of play. Needed to make sure it didn't glance off a Wolverine.
I don't see a move forward button.... NOOOO!!!!! Much like those nanobots in that episode of Star Trek TNG, the thread chose to kill itself than be used for nefarious purposes.
I picked a bad day to stop sniffing glue.
I was totally about to make that reference once I got to the bottom of the page, too...
Beat me to it.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines
For the first time in the history of the internet, a thread has reached 1,000 posts without someone mentioning Hitler.
center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop". 1038 and boom hitler'd
It's Michigan time in the second OT....
Does anyone know how many goals U-M has had called back this year?
I don't think that is a number that you really want to know...
Not as many as I think we had called back last year, but mighty close and they've been WAY more important this year.
I might puke, and I haven't thrown up in five years. Anyone beat that?
Do soldering irons belong in my pupil? If not, that might win.
My wife was hoping I could pay her a visit upstairs as soon as the game got over. I'm about to crush my fifth beer since the start of OT so that's not happening.
I'll get that for you.
That was a terrible way to loose, and I, too want to vomit.
Compounded by the fact that I am still hung over from turning 21 24 hrs ago and had no thai sweet and spicy chicken not too long ago, my stomach is in knots. Punched in the gut my mich sports yet again, but I still have faith.
Congrats to the hockey team they battled through a lot and still had a great season.
Amazing that the record is on Michigan Hockey. Way to go MGOBLOG community!!!!
I'm starting to come down from my beer buzz. Time for the game to end.
You know, the Nazis used to blow the whistle when the puck was obviously loose in the crease too...
I'm sure Coach Mr. Bean is telling his players to keep fighting hard and they could come through. That's after he's done performing unspokens on Shegos's minions.
How about we punch the announcers!!!
thank god. i missed the mike eaves interview the 1st two times they played it
Wow, pulling out the reruns with Mike Eaves again
they just start waking coaches up.
Does anyone know if the game is being broadcast on the radio?
You can usually get the link from MGoBlue.com on the Gamecenter page.
For the heads-up on the audio...no more frantically refreshing the box score!
(But I'm still not getting any schoolwork done...).
mgoblue.com should have an audio feed.
Is Ann Arbor not on Daylight Savings Time? Why are these posts an hour earlier than my computer? No wonder I can't figure out from the time of the comments what happened when I had to take a phone call... And, speaking of clocks, don't these refs have to go to bed?
as much. Thanks for confirming.
To the time that Brian is in!
Does anyone else think Ben Holden looks like the ad exec that got fired for wetting himself in season one of Mad Men? Eerie.
What's the thinking for the 2OT? UM hasn't played in many - does that matter at this point in the season?
We've gone farther past E then anyone!
So, I'm driving home from new york with six members of the michigan sailing team, and I'm following the game through this board and the uscho liveblog. My heart's beating and I'm not even watching it. Despite battery and 3G issues, I've kept it going. We need to win for it all to be worthwhile. GO BLUE!
Wow. Thats brings back memories from 20 years ago when I used to do the same.
You had 3G and internet message boards 20 years ago? But... Al Gore hadn't invented the interwebs yet.
That's awesome! A win would really seal that as a really cool MgoMemory.
no one's played in a double OT game this season.
Keeps you on you toes the whole time...
I didn't know we were watching Caddy Shack!
Keeps you on your toes the whole time...
You throw up on your toes too, eh?
I think if, somehow, the refs don't totally fuck us over, then next game, we have a new thread every quarter.
We've played 4. That sounds like quarters to me.
EDIT: Yeah, I negged myself for that one.
What is this, Haloscan?
Keep up the good work guys and let's hope that Carl goes Bork! Bork! Bork!
We've made the jump to Plaid. Well played.
They're just making a new one of those stupid Buffalo Wild Wings commercials where the people don't want the game to end yet so Bdubs cheats to rob a team of victory.
Surprisingly we really carried the play in that period - hope they can keep it going a little longer.
And tell him to pray.
a hot dog.
ask him to go out for beers after the game
his cell phone if it rings during gameplay
Can we, please, get an update to _Blue_Ice_?
AsK him if Shegos would have blown the whistle early.
is ben holden related to steve lavin
He certainly is related to jelly donuts though.
for uofm in the first OT. Argh
Does anyone else think that the bench setup is unfair. Michigan has had the long change 3 times tonight to Miami's 1.
Thanks for that insightful comment.
I'm getting ornery. I want to punch the silent Conoco man.
Mike Francesca is talking about the Yankees!!! Doesn't he know this game is on??
I took my sleeping pills an hour ago. This really does feel like forever.
Bork, bork, bork
Here we go. 2nd OT.
We've got this, guys. We're OWED this after the shit we've endured the last few years. Karma.
Very sweet to see!!
why do they not switch ends
These announcers analysis = To win, Michigan will have to score a goal before they give up one.
This officiating = My head asploding.
Damn. Everytime I think I've finally caught up with this thread there's like 3 new pages.
Or got hooked
I'll handle this ... the only danger in space is if we land on the terrible Planet of the Apes ... wait a minute. Statue of Liberty ... THAT WAS OUR PLANET! YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! DAMN YOU! DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!
Jeeze how many times is LB Terrance Smith going to commit to FSU?
Does anyone know what's at stake?
Why didnt they switch ends after OT #1 ??
Michigan in the Maize-n-Blue (in case you didn't know). Thanks!!!
We need this now. Please, angry michigan hating god, take your union mandated break for the next 20 minutes.
I think at 60 SOG, we should automatically be awarded a goal.
Hey what do you guys think is at stake here tonight?
please tell me what's at stake tonight?
I hate sports.
Ugh. Dammit refs.
I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN
Fuck. These refs deserve to be fired.
Fuck, guys. Disappointing. Bullshit too.
I hate the world.
Fuck everything and everyone, except for those who read and post on this blog.
Fuck this bullshit. Michigan was fucking hosed by the god-awful fucking refs.
well then.. ain't that some BS
Hell of a game, Blue...
fucking bullshit. I'm gonna cry
So... now it's a tie game again?
Exactly. Should be 3-3. right? Right?
Sun Bowl Officials suck.
Games Decided by officials suck.
Damn. Fuck. Bastard.
God Bless You Hunwick. You played a hell of a game. We weren't here without you.
We got fucking robbed.
Really. How does that happen?????
Fuck you Michigan Hating God... well played
There is no God, justice, truth, or American way.
Damn the man. I blame the government.
of course. just another brick on this FUCKING year.
i absolutely hate this.
We. Got. Fucked.
This is bullcrap.
The deserved to be castrated.
Straight garbage. Michigan screwed by the worst officiating in sports.
hockey ref fail
miami and these motherfuckin refs.
Wake me up for Uconn
Michigan is in a nightmare that they just can't wake up from.....
Maybe Red will punch the refs in the throat, and then head up to the announcer's box....
i really dont know what else to say
FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK.
Where's the bullshit review? Where's the wave off of a clearly good goal? I thought those were standard practice. I mean, they've been happening all along.
one per game. Sort of like American Idol can only use one save per season.
Angry Michigan-hating gods, you and your ref minions have taken all that I have left. Good try boys, and good "win."
Infinite Dong Punch
so mad. I reserve the right to piss and moan about referees for at least 6 months after this...
f u refs
Total BS. I need another drink.
Absolute bullshit. Feel for our boys, they deserved the win tonight.
why us? why us?
I think the state of Ohio made an agreement with the devil, aka Michigan Hating God.
I'm off to drive my car into a damn bridge embankment!
is a cruel kid with a magnifying glass and we are sadly ants.
Sad panda.. Goodnight...
like flies to wanton boys, so are we to the gods?
their goalie is too big, not fair.
Now please stop punching us there. It hurts.
And tell your son 2010-11 that we'll be his friend . . . we promise.
We got bent over and assfucked by those refs.
And this whole year. I'm giving up on sports.
my soul is broken.
We won this game. Period.
ESPN got their BB fuzzy story.
I hope Boston College beats them down so hard their heads fall off. They had this handed to them on a silver platter.
Does anybody know who the ref was who screwed up that goal? I want to know who it was and what conference he's from at least.
Well, I'm going to go highstick my wrists. Excuse me.
Remember the good ol' days. You'd score in sudden death OT and more often than not you'd win the game.
I want a replay. I think there was a whistle...
Tough way to lose, but considering they were left for dead just two weeks ago every game after the CCHA tourney was gravy. I wish it had gone the other way (and wish that ref swallows his whistle, literally) but it was a great effort.
That was a terrible way to end such a great game. We got jobbed by those refs
anyone else want to talk about the spring game, or denard's position, or prospective starting lineups???????
Cuz I fucking do!!!!!
Great game and great job redeeming the season. Too bad they got hosed with the quick whistle, but it's not the first time that has happened. Anyone else have a flashback to the gold medal game on that goal? Carbon copy.
I can tolerate a loss, but a blunder by an out-of-postition referee in OT is tough to swallow. Dammit.
I am going to punch him in the FUCKING face when I see him.
The city of Detroit was just robbed of thousands in ticket sales. Fuck you Miami (Not that Miami).
At least the hardest working team...no wait,
at least the deserving team....no wait,
at least there were no blown call....no wait,
well I guess the lesson learned is that hard work doesn't pay off in college hockey.
"Life isn't fair... So why try"
Congratulations to the NCAA. Enjoy the 4,000 fans at Ford Field.
The NCAA should make it up by garnishing that Ref's wages at Burger King for the next 200 years.
Referees blow whistle, game.
repost of something i posted back on Dec. 4th. One day when we're on top, I'm going to remember all this bullshit we've been through, raise my middle fingers up to the sky and laugh at you.
"I feel like Lieutenant Dan sitting on top of the bubba gump shrimp boat in the middle of the hurricane.
Bring it, Michigan-Everything-Hating GOD. Is that all you got? BRING IT.
Pretty soon we'll be snapping up all the shrimp in the sea, fucker."
I won't be anywhere within 40 miles of Ford Field during the Frozen Four.
Two officials have gone missing. In other news, two corpses were found in the Michigan locker room. Red Berenson had no comment.
Freep names RichRod as the only suspect
Yeah, but we've got Cam Gordon.
The worst part is, Red will never stand up and say we got screwed by the referees. We need coaches that are willing to do that. Never saying that he's a bad coach, but I wish he would.
I'm thinking a nice big billboard right outside the building in Indianapolis.
Red doesn't need to say that we got screwed. That isn't going to change the outcome. I'm sure he tells his players in the lockerroom but we aren't going to whine about it.
And whats with the benches/ not changing ends. We played the first/third/and both OTs with the long change. That is sooo difficult for those that haven't played the game. Just in expending more energy throughout the game...
All that said,
THANK YOU MICHIGAN HOCKEY. Thank You for lifting the spirits of the michigan sports fan after a disappointing year. Thank you Shawn Hunwick for doing what you did!
Sparty in the Final Four.
We get screwed out of the Frozen Four.
Now Manny announces his future tomorrow. Yippie.
In the past year, it seems like bad things have come in about... 72's.
There is a special place reserved in hell for hockey referees.
That is all.
I wore a cup... then got punched in the throat
I think the best thing we can do at this point is ignore the Frozen Four being right in our back yard. Fuck the NCAA and let them suffer poor attendance in a hockey-rich town close to several of the finalists and near a major hockey school. I bought my tickets last year and now I'm leaning towards selling them since I don't want to be anywhere near a place where people are rooting for Miami. Boycott them and tell everyone else to as well.
Selling them to somebody else won't prove anything ... the NCAA doesn't care who is sitting in the seats, just that somebody is. And, really, once the tickets are paid for, they probably don't even care all that much about whether anyone is in them at all.
According to NCAA.com's website, the officials for the game were:
Referee: John Gravelese
Linesman: Chris Aughe
Goal Judge: Bob Bernard
I don't know who made that call, but fuck him.
From the pregame thing under game summary here.
EDIT #2: http://www.hockeyeastonline.com/men/hea/officials.php
They are from HE.
Are there any semi-decent college hockey refs out there?
how bout them Red Wings?
Okay guys heres the plan. Lets all drive to ohio tonight, drive across the border, and shit all over the whole damn state. Fuck those motherfuckers.
Fuck you angry michigan hating god. Fuck college hockey refereeing and the NCAA.
Can we get a do-over on this entire year? please?
Its official: God hates all of us and always will. Thats the only way this last year is possible. Pure spite and hatred from God
The women blew out Syracuse in the WNIT this afternoon. Maybe the Michigan-hating Gods didn't know about the game so they were all down in Indiana.
And thanks to the horrible refs, get ready to enjoy yet another BC or Wisconsin national title
They are the worst state ever after all.
Heartbreaking loss, but I'm proud of the guys for getting this far.
It's John Gravallese.
That's just what they want you to think.
But I've definitely found the phone number and address of a John Gravallese that has the profession listed on http://www.hockeyeastonline.com/men/hea/officials.php
I'm not going to harass him though, I'm not that much of a dick.
And NO, I'm not posting the info here. I was hoping to find his email address so I could send him a calmly thought through email telling him how much cock he sucks and how he better not quit his day job.
At least ESPNU is now showing attractive softball players. That's HAWT.
Thanks for the heads up, I changed the channel after my head asploded.
No amount of emery cats will dull this pain.
Well, now rooting for BC come next game.
Can't believe they let it end like that after screwing us. Can't believe they have a Frozen Four in Detroit, have a shot at having Michigan there, and screw it up.
I thought that this thread was going to look puny when we got around to some FROZEN FOUR THREADS. But, well, damn....sigh....
I'm going to guess "TAKE IT LIKE A MAN" going to be coming down tomorrow. We have no manhood left to take it...
But at least Hannah Storm looks good as " Lois Lane" in the post game commercials....
Why did Miami only have to score once in OT to win?
Just got back from Ft. Wayne. Epic thread. Epic sadness.
to this world record thread. I watched the game and I said a few bad words during the goal-non-goal call and at the conclusion of the game. Yes, I know I have a bible verse as my signature but who's not prone to some sinning after a call like that?! As said before, what a dong punch.
"Why did we go to hell? Oh yeah, the sins."
We are like the Old Testament Israelites. We need Moses.
We need Perseus.
