Football Display Case
I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
7:05 start tonight, Michigan takes on Notre Dame tonight trying to salvage a split after last night's debacle.
Rutledge in net for Michigan, Summerhays for ND.

I'm not sure I can subject myself to this tonight
(feel free to neg me, but it is what it is)
It's a hockey thread, everyone gets an upvote.
It was better that I was not subjected to that
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
Faceoff loss, hard move to the net and they score. 1-0 Irish.
Please tell me why Rutledge is playing? At this point, they might as well give Luke Dwyer a shot.
We have to start looking at our options for next season. Dwyer isn't going to factor into that decision.
Rutledge has looked pretty good when he's stayed at home. Obviously it's a lot easier to make those saves, but I think he'll look a lot better when he has a better understanding of the when/where/why of getting out of the crease to make a play, and that's probably something that just needs to click with him. I haven't seen any NTDP highlights, but I wouldn't be shocked to see that he had enough speed/good enough defense to get away with that stuff before hitting high major NCAA. He also seems to lose concentration out of the net, for whatever reason.
Then again, I know I've been less down on the goaltending than a lot of people are this season, so maybe I'm just not very good at seeing that type of stuff.
It's the mental part of the game he has to adjust too. I wouldn't be surprised to see him and Racine the rest of the season.
Janecyk has shown what he can do, I don't think he will be in competition next year unless something goes wrong.
At least the Wings won and are tied for second now.
"All I've had today is, like, six gummy bears and some scotch"
Yep in a two way tie for 6th in the conference as well. There is a lot of hockey left. I like the play of Brunner and Tatar. Tatar can be a good black ace down the stretch.
Why dont we ever play them in hoops? That would be fun to watch!
"Only three things can happen when you pass, and two of them are bad" -Bo Schembechler
Not sure why Michigan and ND stopped playing in hoops but I doubt Brandon will be rushing to schedule them anytime soon with how the football series ended.

Yost needs to either lose the goal horn or get a new one.
Copp has exceeded all expectations this season.
I want one
Another great play from Copp, Guptill scores. Back to the powerplay.
Shit. 1-3. Make it stop.
Neutral zone turnover they score, it's 3-1.
Hey Red! You know I love ya, but you're leaving a goaltender in who has let in 10 goals in the past 24 hours?!?
I don't care if they ice it every time ND puts pressure on, just don't turn it over. Notre Dame pushes tempo so well, any time you turn the puck over in the neutral zone or the defensive zone it's going in your net.
Di Giuseppe on the powerplay, it's 4-2.
At this point, I wouldn't be upset at all if Trouba just starts swinging and gets a fighting major. At least it would show me this actually cares enough. No energy.
Nice goal by PDG! We have a pulse!!
In other college hockey news. Looks like UNO is having issues getting their outdoor hockey game in tonight...that is coolant coming out of the ice
Hopefully it's better for the Hockey City Classic next weekend in Chicago.
Sure looks like it.
At least a season like this will prepare Trouba for what it's like playing for the Jets once he decides to start getting paid for it.
It doesn't get any worse than this. Two quick goals, it's 6-2. Rutledge is out, Janecyk has already allowed a goal.
So nd scores, Rutledge gets pulled for Janecyk and then Janecyk lets one right in. 2-6.
Disaster. Anyone holding out hope for winning the playoff is out of their mind. Keep in mind that 2009-10 lost close games and had guys like Hags and had a solid goaltender.
A fucking disaster. This season is the last time we'll play 80% of these teams in the CCHA in regular season and we're losing to every one of them on the farewell tour.
Give that man a goal. Cmon man.
Something isn't right in the universe. We have three powerplay goals.
Also Kevin Lynch got a goal counted after a review. Twilight zone.
The first season sweep by Alaska, Tourney streak snapped, first losing season since the 80's, now a season sweep from Notre Dame. This is rock bottom.
but I just can't believe a team this talented is so bad. Goaltending is weak, but that's far from the only issue here
Lol look at this guy. Enjoy getting fucked sideways by BC, BU, Merrimack etc. in Hockey East!
Getting fucked sideways builds character.
How dare you post stock photos in such a manner.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
Hey al Montoya picked up a shutout tonight for Winnipeg!! That is all
If you spell Crisler like the car company you should hand in your fan card before the next meeting.... Same goes for Ferry Field
As if this team wasn't horrible enough. If they don't win two games this team will have the worst record a Michigan team under Red Berenson has ever had. 1985-86 had 12 wins, we have 10.
So are we still making excuses for this team, or are we actually asking questions that need to be asked?
the question is, why we're recruiting goalies (and forwards) who end up bailing on us ess than 2 months before the puck drops their FR year?
I'm not sure if other schools are having recruites bail to the OHL. Either we aren't targeting the right guys or we weren't do something- IDK.
Harvard: The MICHIGAN of the East
We're not arrogant, we're just better.
If you want the top prospects in hockey this is the price you pay. If a player is getting a lot of attention, there isn't much we can do about it.
Just imagine a Canadian Nick Saban in Windsor, London, Kitchener and every other city with a big CHL team. Multiple times Michigan has held commitments for two years only to see the player flip after draft day.
I know North Dakota and some other WCHA schools really struggle with this. If you want to be the best, you have to gamble on those guys. Sometimes you get a lot of them and have a great team and sometimes you get screwed which is part of the reason both Michigan and North Dakota are bad this year
