to play football, not to play trumpet
Official national title overtime thread
That is all.
Shit, shit, shit, shit....Spring Football ...shit...
God fucking damn it
What makes it official?
I blame this double posted thread.
Clear the fucking puck... god fucking damn it
Spring Game this Saturday. Cya there...
Didn't Michigan lose last year too in OT? Or was that 2 years ago? Tough loss today
If you mean tournament, yes. Lost to Miami in OT in the regional final--after getting screwed out of a goal on an early whistle. Tonight was Michigan's first loss in the finals under Red.
My heart hurts fuckkk
Nothing like puking on yourself on national television.
lazy, lazy fucking players. Ive lost all respect for this team. the entire game they were beat to every piuck. when merrill couldnt even make an effort to keep up with the umd player in the 3rd when we were on the power play and had to haul him down was when i realized they were soft. and red just sit there and doesnt say anything, what the fuck is wrong with him, give them shit call them pussies make them feel bad about how pathetic they are playing. no way did they deserve to win that game and they should be ashamed at the effort they put in tonight. if I was hunwick id rip every player an new asshole in the locker room for being fucking lazy. I have never seen so little efoort in trying to move your feet
I don't have any cat pics, but I hope this is a joke
yeah fuck this team! only shitty teams get to the finals anyway
The better team won. It happens.
The better team won.
But they weren't the better team.
They played better when it mattered. Of course they were five to our four for nearly an entire period of play. That wears on a team, especially in OT towards the end of the tournament. At the same time, the refs didn't force us to turn the puck over again, and again, and again, even before the guys were gassed.
You need to have your IP address blocked from this site. They took UMD to overtime, this wasn't Ohio State vs. Florida in 2007 or whatever it is that you think you saw.
good luck with that
If you can't find a reason to love this team, you should just go and troll elsewhere, like RCMB
go fuck. yourself.
man. I seriously can't stand people who rip players like that.
You're right: Red Berenson, the winningest coach in college hockey, isn't very good. You'd be much better. In fact, I'd like to be the first to nominate Hockey Genius white_pony_rocks to be our new head hockey coach. /s
Also, your post was incredibly lazy and showed no effort at all to have proper punctuation or spelling. Or, for that matter, a point. I think you should feel pathetic about how badly you are posting.
FWIW, Red's not the winningest coach in college hockey, but he's certainly up there.
you should feel pathetic for living in ohio......loser
The point of ripping the players is...? Seriously, calm down man. They made it to the National Title game, nothing to be disappointed about.
lets look at the shot differential for umd the first 3 games and then look at this game and then tell me what happened. we played like shit, couldnt get past the neutral zone without dumping it in really, really early (so early we got pathetic icing calls because they wouldnt move their feet) they got beat to every puck in the corners and showed no will to win. had to take stupid penalties because they refused to skate hard and they lost because of it. sorry, according to you i may not know math, but i know hockey just as much as any of you.
THOS LAZY HOCKY PLAYERS FELLING SO ENTILTED CUZ THEY R MICHIGAN SUTUDENTS THEY THINK THE R SO MUCH BETTER THEN ME WELL I HOPE THEY LERNED THERE LESSON HAHA LOL
But seriously, you're either a troll or honestly bipolar and need some sort of professional help. Nothing wrong with seeing a therapist- we should all take the time to do so.
Also- great season, hockey team
You sir, can go fuck yourself. There's a difference between being completely gassed and lazy. I'd be willing to bet that you've never accomplished half of what these kids just did. They just laid it on the line for our school and lost to a team that played better. Kindly fuck off and never comment on Michigan hockey again.
I sincerely hope you show up tomorrow sobered up and apologize for this. Disgraceful.
Hey I have an idea. Why don't you and exmtroj go have a threesome with Justin Boren and see who can dig marshmellow peeps out of his sweaty ass first. The winner can go on a second date with him. Then become an OSU fan because that is what you sound like.
I've never seen such little effort into putting correct grammar in a post.
p.s. Eat my shit.
wait, only -30? what's wrong with this board?
i could feel it coming when we couldnt clear for like 2 minutes
Yeah it was becoming inevitable, you could see them tiring. What a terrible way for it all to end. Those poor guys must be completely gutted.
I was telling my wife the same thing. This is not good we can't clear the...goddamnit!!!! Silence.
they took it to us in overtime.
Oh well. We'll always have NoDak.
fuck those floppers. UMD should be ashamed of themselves.
i'd be pretty ashamed to win my school's first national championship too
Ill drink to a successful season. Go Blue!!
Face it, this team overacheived on so many levels. They had a great year and I'm pround of it as I am sure they are.
Winning the Big Chill 4-0, winning the GLI for the millionth time, playing in the NCAA tourney for the 20th conseutive year and making a hell of a run it. Thats a great year. Only one team in the nation wouldn't trade places with them and that's Minnesota-Duluth.
we had no offense to speak of. Still, a hell of an effort. Proud of this overachieving team.
red said "you can play defense everyday" which is true but if the offense doesnt really help out for the 3rd consecutive game...its gonna give eventually. really no sustained pressure at all tonight.
gotta give it up though: 1/9 on UMD powerplays? really impressive. its too bad we barely had any offense
And yet three goals should have been enough to win it.
we had enough offense to win the game regulation 3-2....oh wait, referees......&%#$!
I'd be wore out too if I spent all night killing penalties.....another disallowed goal cost's the boys in blue....great season, wont be one I'll forget for a long while...nothing but pride tonight!
OT threads = Bad luck
Don't blame the officials. The no goal was the right call and most of the penalties were blatant. UMD played harder than us.
Puck in net, then whistle. How is that "the right call"?
Arms were in the air even before the whistle.
We should get the trophy just for getting it to OT against those odds.
Man, shitty way to end the season. Great effort from our guys, they left it all out on the ice. Get 'em next season!
Stop blaming officials. We played like crap, and the better team won. The only disappointment should be over our effort. One star defensemen in particular absolutely dogged it out there tonight, beat to every puck and made turnover after turnover.
And faceoffs... don't get me started.
But we still should have won even though we played like crap. We scored 3 goals in regulation. UMD scored two. And yet, at the end of regulation the score read 2-2. Clearly the refs had a play in that and clearly they can be blamed for it.
We looked slow. Damn.
forwards were skating around the defensemen just like nodak was. i was surprised
You have everything to be proud of.
I'm still going to buy a Hunwick jersey. He's still my hero.
I really thought the power of Hoke-A-Mania was going to pull us through. ;)
Me too :(
Starting defenseman a scratch too due to prolonged illness.
That sucked, but I am mighty proud.
We had that goal from the 1st...
UMD had the balls to push the puck in OT and pull their defensemen forward. Hats off to them for that. We definitely played conservative to end the 3rd and they pushed up, took the risk of getting exposed, and got it in the net. Good show. Their coach could easily be the goat right now for calling a more aggressive play style and losing when Michigan got a 2 on 1. He comes out looking good though.
My only bitch was the refs need to get the sand out of their vaginas. I felt like in the third they were blowing whistles and sending people on both teams to the boxes for some really minor shit. It's the third period of the national championship game, let the kids skate. I think UMD got called for some lame shit and so did we. The neutral observer in me found myself going "Really, you're calling THAT? Is touching illegal now?!" when both UMD and UM players were getting boxed throughout the game.
Your in-laws weren't in town for THIS one....
I wish they were. Melrose would in be their luggage, bound with duct tape and the suitcase tagged as "To Pyongyang".
Actually my father in law has been asking me when the first grandkid will be showing up. He didn't like my suggestion to check back in five to ten years. It's a little wierd to have a guy encouraging me to knock his daughter up.
We didn't get many bounces but they played a damn good game. We took untimely and costly penalties all game long, I didn't see much laziness but their defense wasn't a very good matchup against UMD, especially without Burlon, they needed a big body. Their goals weren't any more "garbage" than ours, in hockey bounces don't always go your way but thats all in the game win or lose. We didn't play as physical as id like to have seen and Hunwick as absolutely incredible once again.
I think looking at Berensens record or names of our sweet players isn't what you evaluate in a hockey game. Its all about how the game is played and positioning and execution. That overtime goal was a blindpass, yeah, but the man driving the net was in perfect position as well as their second goal on the putback. It was an awesome game to watch and im not bitter towards them, tonight they didn't outplay us necessarily, but thats hockey. Go Blue, next years team will be MUCH different than this years.
I literally cried. Three times. I'm sitting next to my sleeping girlfriend trying to justify why I care so much and why I can't sleep when I'm just so tired.
I'm gonna miss Carl. I hope Scooter gets drafted, he deserves it. Fuck, I hurt.
OT in the NCAA's hasn't been kind to the Wolverines of late. 2-6 in OT games since the '98 OT Championship game.
