Michigan takes on Western tonight. The game is on Comcast 900 if you're in the area. Let's go get three points
Michigan - Western Michigan: Open Thread
Congrats to Dan Nichol the new strength coach for WMU football...just saying.
Let's Go Blue!
We have two games @ WMU, currently tied for 1st. State is hosting Penn State for two games this weekend, so they will stay in the CCHA cellar. BG, which is tied with us in 9th place, is @ Miami for two games. NMU in 8th with 20 pts is @ AK for two games. Sure would be nice to gain some points and move up a bit.
Janecyk getting his 4th straight start. Guess we'll just start walk ons forever. As long as it works I'm fine w/ it
Couple good chances early. We've got to get the puck in the net, though.
Nothing would be more beneficial to our noble cause than to get a quick one and shut this crowd up.
Phil diGiuseppe! 1-0 U-M!!!
Wow, I thought Nieves had lost the puck. Great diving play on the assist. Plus we're on the PP.
Guptill PPG!!! 2-0 U-M!!!
We want MOAR GOALS!!!
I blacked out there...are we winning 2-0 in the first? This happens in hockey this year?
So when did we become good again?
Shhhh, it's still early.
Shit, they score. 2-1 now.
Hunwick. Nothing better than actually being confident in your goalie, that's not there right now.
Tiny Jesus saves.
I hope Racine and Rutledge make big improvents for next year.
If you have comcast it's on 901 or 707
We can has another PPG?
But we can give up the tying goal with a minute left. Ohh this hockey team...
Where did the sieve chant start?
...back in late 80s, along with some others, most not suitable for print. Cornell was invited 4th team to GLI at or just after that time. Group of us did those chants at the Joe. One of that group of us went UM law school & continued tradition, always claimed we/he brought all those rude cheers here to Ann Arbor. Never believed him, & still don't, but was an article in the daily a few years back about crackdown on the foul language in some of these chants at Yost & article did trace their arrival to Cornell's appearance in GLI when these "rude fans" brought some of those nasty cheers out here. (I can believe Cornell fans in general, of which we were part, brought some of these chants, but my friend kind of claims personal responsibility.) Goalie - Sieve was definitely the mildest.
I'm in the social work school at WMU, waited outside in line for close to 30 minutes, and it reached capacity before I could get in. Seems like the first had a lot of action.
It's amazing how arrogant that twits from western are with how little they've won and how empty their trophycase is.
People can say whatever they want about us being arrogant but we earned that right by Michigan winning and filling Yost with championship banners.
How are they being arrogant?
Have you ever been to a game where they're there? Or post on uscho?
No, I'm genuinely curious how they're being arrogant. I've heard they are before but am just wondering what some examples are.
It's Friday night....hockey game's on.
Common dude come clean - why the minus 1MM points? What the F did you do?
I made a joke about the illegal immigrants in arizona and the rest of the southwest and it was deemed over the line.
Sorry to hear that dude. Ill-timed and innapropriate jokes seem to the most common way folks around here get slammed. It's why I never, ever repeat jokes - especially the real funny ones.
Anybody watching on Western's feed? Was that a dive?
but has anyone else started to enjoy watching the pistons? I feel like Lawrence Frank is doing a great job making htis team servicable (compared to where they could be).
FUCK! They go ahead 3-2.
Well those first 8 minutes of the first period were fun
Three unanswered goals. /sigh
Need our best period of the season right here. Let's go fellas!
The lunatics are amateurs. First they ban little kids from riding the zamboni at the intermissions because the lunatics were trying to get them to do inappropriate gestures. In the 2nd the PA had to warn them to use appropriate language.
I'm in Chicago right now, and the TV I'm watching on has two different college hockey games (Minnesota on BTN, Yale Cornell on NBC) and a freaking AHL game, but I can't watch either the Michigan Or Red Wings games. Sigh.
OT, but they are talking about Penn State's new program. Has anybody been paying attention to them this year? How are they doing? Are they going to be an okay program in the B1G next year?
Dunno, but PSU is currently tied with MSU at 3.
They're playing pretty damn well for a first-year program in D1. I'm hoping they do well and looking forward to what could be an awesome hockey rivalry.
We should have pulled the fire alarm last period.
Western and UM schedule some non conference games after this year. As a wmu alum i love seeing the hockey program doing good, and developing a rivalry between the two schools is a good thing.
PP us with seconds left.
Edit: Gah, no extra time put on. 3-2, they win.
BG is currently trailing Miami 2-1. If they lose, we keep their company in 9th. (Ugh, it hurts to comtemplate that.)
Ugh, I feel like asking someone to just put a bullet into this season. This team bores me. Call me if they make it to the Joe for the CCHA Tourney.
Call me whatever but this team has no redeeming qualities this season.
