7:35 on CBS Sports. Finishing the sweep for the weekend would be a huge step towards the #1 seed for the tourney.
Go Blue. Beat Miami of Ohio.
Michigan - Miami(NTM) Hockey Open Thread (Also drinking, hoozah!)
Go Blue! Finally splurged on the cable package just to get this game. Also, to start a saturday night drinking thread if one isn't started, I'm drinking Weihenstephaner Original. Very tasty.
Towards the second period i will probably moves towards bourbon and coke.
for greater inclusion
Edit: double post.
but not the original. Have you had both and if so, how would you say they compare?
I've only had it once, at Ashley's as part of a beer flight. I liked it but it was my only time trying it so I can't detail my feelings for it.
How come they keep playing Notre Dame highlights on the radio broadcast?
Clear the front of the net!
Would hate to see any retalitory hits tonight, but if they keep running at Hunwick, it's on!!
I tried finding one but no luck.
and I failed
Happy Saturday. I'll tell ya'll what, since Bama doesn't have a hockey team, Michigan is now my ipso facto favorite team.
Happy to have you on board. Do you like hockey even without a team or just jumping in now?
Without the use of Google, I couldn't tell you what a blue line is.
Happy to have you here! You do realize Miami sucks, and not just because they are from that state down south!
I think I remember seeing a post saying we were 3rd in the pairwise going into tonight. Another win against Miami would be huge to hold that spot.
Tied with Ferris for 4th in PairWise; 3rd in KRACH
Maybe you should split your avatar with a guy named Bo. Your analysis and input are welcome here.
No disrespect to the GREAT Bo Schembechler, but NO ONE, shares a picture with Paul Bear Bryant in my avatar.
Once we learn how to skate, we'll be hell on wheels. Roll Tide.
Hell on wheels? More like hell on BLADES! amirite?
Kind of like, the LA Kings minus Gretsky!
On a shorty! Great start.
What an underrated player.
STAY OUT OF THE DAMN BOX!!!
Announcers didn't like the call. Argh CCHA officiating strikes again!
Alabama doesn't have the greatest theoretical math department in the world, but I like to think I got a good education. That being said, how does one get to over -40k points? What did you do, say Mario Edwards was signing with Michigan?
It's called being sent to Bolivia. If a poster is partaking in shenaniganry too much, he gets sent to Bolivia. It's like a scarlet letter.
If that's the case, there would be whole colonies of people with scarlet letters on the SEC fan blogs.
The system has a mild civilizing effect. It used to be even better; in the past, people's upvotes added points and downvotes subtracted points, so the board could be a lot more self-regulating. It also led to some brilliant negbangs. Now, the duty of de-pointifying falls on the shoulders of the poor mods.
Brian recently mentioned that he is bringing back the vote system as part of offseason upgrades.
I think it is Bolivian, not Bolivia, because someone's auto check changed 'Oblivion' to 'Bolivian' and it stuck. as in "...sent to Bolivian..."
...and I haven't said it yet, but glad to have you on MGoBlog, RollDamnTide. You seem like good people. I learned to be a Michigan fan from my Dad, whose OTHER favorite team has always bean Alabama. So I inherited Bama as a default favorite SEC team.
Guess they know they fucked up last night and are going to call EVERYTHING
Weber to the box, I hope, and a U-M PP.
Looks like the CCHA refs are at it again.
Getting scrappy already. Honey Bear is doing work out there.
Go Alaska, BGSU, Northern Michigan, and little brother!!!!
We could move up to second place tonight
Some people have been around hockey for their entire lives, like our friend the announcer, and still aren't aware the A stands for Alternate captian, not assistant.
Miami PP??? Fucking bullshit!
Who else just felt the power of a jinx?
no respect for this miami team. weber #4 is a punk. that 'man' is a disgrace to his team, his parents, his coach, that university and the united states of america. halleluia, holy shit.
After Red retires, I'm actually hoping we poach Blasi from NTM. It would be such a F U to that program.
We better hire Mel Pearson.
I don't. Dude's a twat
Great coach, can't take that away from him. And he gets a lot of respect for the way he/Miami handled the Brendan Burke story (Miami hockey's student manager who came out as gay to the team, which is not always so accepted in hockey locker rooms).
But I hope he never coaches Michigan ever. I can't stand him. We can find a coach that's as good but less of a douchebag.
If you want to get an appreciation for UM Hockey go to YouTube and search for Yost Arena, Michigan Hockey Band, or Michigan Hockey to get a few clips of the experience. I think you will enjoy it and a feel for the South is missing sports-wise.
It's been months since he recorded a point, it's time.
Does BG count as a road trip? It's like an hour away from AA
2nd period underway! BRING DOWN THE DYNASTY
MOFFIE STRIKES AGAIN!!!!!
2-0 good guys. Total puck possession goal. Looked like the Red Wings out there.
Our special teams are going to win us this game...
Holy shit Sergott is probably the worst Ref ever
of shitty refs.
How is that Icing?!?!?!?!?!?
for all you who are there? Oh wait, you cant post anyway.
Could access MGoBlog on the internet browser on one's smartphone. Not ideal but doable. And wow they are diving
According to Yost Built, if the current Alaska-Western score holds up (3-0 Alaska), we would be within one of 1st place
Alright, since there hasn't been much of a drinking discussion going on. During the intermission, let's run down we're all drinking.
I'll start: Kirkland Signature small batch bourbon and coke.
Seagrams 7 and ginger ale.
Green Flash IPA for me right now
14 years, neat.
followed by a Jameson's.
We are SO much faster than Miami. Looser, and possibly less disciplined, but there's a noticeable delta in speed and talent.
This is like nirvana - 2 games in a row televised. Bummer this one's not in HD.
Go Blue (we'll win 4 shade)!
Are you sure it's not offered in HD where you are?
Just took the lead on ND with less than 2 minutes left.
and bud light platinum
and red stag
....alternating all three
how is bud light platinum?
My first impression wasn't the best last night. However, I think I went into it trying to compare it to BL and Bud. It has a noticeable difference and tastes a little sweeter. It has more taste than BL, so that's good. The 6% alcohol content is an added bonus. Also, Kroger has 12 packs for $10, so I decided to buy that to give it a fair chance after having a few last night.
All hail Hunwick!!
Let's Go! Pedal to the metal!
Alaska beats WMU 4-1. Worst team in the CCHA, Bowling Green, beats ND at Compton 3-2. Sparty over OSU 3-2. Ferris is up 2-1 on NMU. If all scores hold, Michigan will leave this weekend in third place.
Northern can score and help us out even more
10 losses overall, 9 in conference.
Haven't won since December 30th
Wow, if everything holds, our chances of winning the CCHA have skyrocketed today.
Hunwick is god
That was a great save
Our midget goalie is better than everyone else's goalie. Great game and hustle on that play by Moffie
Shamrock shake for me!
Hey remember all those times when Michigan Hockey has been screwed by replay... let's not have this be one please
i don't believe Rico convinced the ref to go in and look again
Yeah, I would have lost it if that had been overturned.
I didn't think it was possible for the ref to take another look. Yost would have gone crazy if he were to award the goal after a second look.
I like that they went back and looked again and would hope they would do it for us if we were that adamant in our belief
No goal. Still 2-0
What are the rules for video replay in CCHA? Overturnable if the event is televised and SOL otherwise?
Ferris gets the empty netter to win 3-1. They'll be in first after the weekend with 41 pts, WMU in second with 39, and, assuming Michigan doesn't falter, third place will be Michigan with 38 pts.
Can I get a score/clock update?
2-0 8:03 to go in the third
Figures, the moment I step out to get dinner I miss the save of the year
Brown!!! What a move!!!!
What a goal!!! 3-0
Oh. My. God. Brown..... wow
OMG What a tremendous move
I have that McCarty game on VHS.... one of my all time fave things to watch over and over again.
Coming up big on the weekend!!
Happy Birthday series sweep!
holy god that might have been the nicest goal I have seen all year!
That looked like Trey Burke on ice!
Double point for that move...anyone?
I think he should get two for the move and an extra for the tebow celebration!
You mea Denard pose
Avatar for Mr. Brown
Lloyd Brady is everywhere
And a Lloyd brady sighting to end the night
Lloyd Brady sighting.
Sick of the cheap shots and horrible officiating. The radio guys are going ape shit!
What a save!!
F U Weber!
I absolutely hate Weber.
This is getting ridiculous. They were just waiting for the chance to dogpile someone. If you want to scrap it up when the games out of hand, fine, but they went after him 4 v 1 including a goalie.
Can't believe that POS is their captain. What a goon
games from tonite's cbs ticker. hopefully i read them correctly.
wmu, nd and osu all lost at home.
Where does this put us now? Third?
Ferris - 41 pts
WMU - 39 pts
Michigan - 38 pts
ND/Miami/OSU - 36 pts
MSU/Lake State - 35 pts
To hell with NTM!! They are getting to that level with me now after this weekend. Just hate everything they are.
That's why we swept 'em.
Isn't a spear generally with the butt end? Looked more like a poke to me.
I didn't think it was a spear, but it was kinda blocked in replay
A butt-end is with the, well, butt-end of a stick, a spear is with the blade.
To everyone saying "not spearing" the rule doesn't include any gray area. It sucks that he's gone, but the rule is black and white, the only room for interpretation is whether a match is warranted or not. In the NHL it's a major and a game or a match if any contact is made, as well.
A major plus game misconduct penalty shall be assessed to any player who pokes or attempts to poke, whether or not contact is made, an opponent with the point of the blade of his stick.
I can't fully blame Miami, as the officiating has allowed the chippiness to get to a level completely out of control, but that is some bullshit by the Redhawks. CCHA should be embarrassed.
the announcers are trying to pin this on Guptill, as if he didn't take a shove after the whistle. Spearing? Please, that was nothing more than a tap...
Do you, or anyone else know the commentators for this game? They were pretty unbiased until this point where I think they tried pinning the whole debacle on Guptil.
Ben Holden, Dave Starman.
at 9:04 in the third for me. Down to just the radio feed here; NTM sounds like quite the goon squad.
After the play some NTM defender lightly checked Guptil, who poked him back. Then, the NTM good squad started lighting shit up. Weber (#4 on jersey, #1 d-bag) went after him high. Chris Brown defended him and chaos ensued.
That's a sick move! He's on my highlight reel tonight
at the end of that clip.
I seriously think that was a full on "are you not entertained?"
Awesome that the NTM dude that got played breaks his stick over the goal cage after the play.
How sweep it is!!!
Suck it, Miami!!
Losing Brown for the game at Munn next weekend is unfortunate.
And completely the referees' fault!!!
to Hunwick on another shut out. What a beast.
Does Pateryn have to sit next weekend too?
He shouldn't. I'm pretty sure that only game disqualifications get you out the next game, not game misconducts.
No, he got 5 for contact to the head and a game misconduct.
3-0 good guys!
Heartbeat never even moved. Easy win. This team is gaining momentum, and goaltending means everything this time of year.
Drinking Bourbon Old-Fashions, and they're going down easy.
Things are running on all cylinders now. Boys must've had their V8.
MGoFriends, tonight is the night we finally saw Enrico Blasi snap. His transformation is complete, he is now the emperor of an evil empire of goonery.
And, let me tell you, it felt great.
Student section was in rare form tonight. That 3rd goal from Brown was nasty, too. This team is really starting to come together.
Agreed. I liked it more when they seated the seasoned students near the middle. I feel like more people got involved in the chants and debauchery.
Hopslam. I be drinking Hopslam.
A couple weeks ago, somebody posted that they were able to procure Hopslam at Meijer. I've driven by the local Meijer, only to eventually discover that they don't carry it.
To the poster who found Hopslam at Meijer: in which region is this Meijer? I haven't found a Meijer in the Detroit area that carries it.
That flippin game should've been called with 3:20 left in the 3rd. As soon as Miami took the 5, I knew they were just gonna goon it up and now we lost Brown. Its BS
and Sergott sucks. What a freakin idiot. Him and his whole crew were terrible
Agreed. That game was obviously going to get out of hand. I also like how the goalie got invovled in the fight and didn't get anything for it. No idea how we got an extra 2 on that. Not that it mattered, but the refs were really shitty.
We're up to 2 in the PWR (might change at the completion of UMD/Alaska-Anchorage). I'll have an update up after that game.
Does Brown have to sit 1 or 2 games
For a game misconduct, just one.
SICK goal by Brown, and Treais and Moffie have really come on for us.
Congrats to Red on his 745th win all-time, he is now in 5th place on the NCAA wins list.
Has MGoBlue uploaded the highlights to YouTube yet?
