|4 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly. There wasn't anyone||
Exactly. There wasn't anyone in the recruiting class expected to go in the first round, then all of Michigan's commits fell in the NHL Central Scouting rankings as the year went on, so this was always going to be a class that filled in the roster without putting guys on the top line in year one. Getting LaFontaine was a big recruiting win and I think we're seeing expectations for him rise quickly.
The other major thing worth noting is that defenseman Luke Martin is a member of the incoming freshmen class and he's expected to be a first-round pick in next year's draft. Chris Dilks published his 2017 rankings this morning and has Martin 28th.

I went with Woodson for levity but I do like your last paragraph. With Harbaugh, I'd never put the odds of something not happening at 100% and the explanation you gave is precisely why.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, that crossed my mind as||
Yeah, that crossed my mind as well. I just figured time heals all wounds (but mostly I didn't have a strong backup contender).

That is indeed a cool story, bro. Email me: adam [at] mgoblog [dot] com.

I prevent fainting by drinking a glass of whole milk and eating a steak before every interview.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||The assumption was that it||
The assumption was that it was a really crafty and intentional move and yeah, that's basically what it was.
|15 weeks 17 hours ago||He was talking about the Red||
He was talking about the Red Army teams, but I think you're right about Bowman and how he would treat the CCM line. They were responsible enough defensively in their own zone that they'd be given a longer leash to create and experiment.
|15 weeks 17 hours ago||I had no idea what you were||
I had no idea what you were referring to, but a quick Google search later I learned I was very unaware of a very popular thing. Maybe I should add "HC" before the rest of the title.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||I'd be surprised if it isn't||
I'd be surprised if it isn't Nagelvoort; I thought he played pretty well this season. They do have Jack LaFontaine coming in, and he's a pretty highly touted draft-eligible prospect.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||They're keeping draft-related||
They're keeping draft-related stuff in house. Rosters will be released the day after it takes place, which I think is actually today.
|19 weeks 14 hours ago||Secondary scoring from the||
Exactly. Secondary scoring from the bottom-six forwards opens up the flood gates on these glorious weekends, and Michigan's bottom six are probably the most talented in the conference.
|19 weeks 14 hours ago||I will not rest until you're||
I will not rest until you're a real hockey fan. I mean, I have a 1.5 year old and my wife's out of town for work so I already don't rest much, but you get the point.
|19 weeks 14 hours ago||Thanks, really appreciate the||
Thanks, really appreciate the kind words. I love doing these. (And with all the goals, I've never had problems meeting my hrs/week quota.)
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for the insight, guys.||
Thanks for the insight, guys. I appreciate it. Now that you mention it, I've seen Motte do this often. I always thought it was a read-and-react thing where he'd hedge when he thought he had a chance, but to hear it's coached to generate SH opportunities makes sense.

Yeah, I think that's prett---

James Light is great. His write-up is about the keynote they did on the main stage. This took place after and was only open to media, but you can see from some of the lines of questioning that the two are interrelated.

I don't know, I think I'm really winning the hearts of our readers with these uplifting posts.
(I already wrote Part 2.)
|20 weeks 13 hours ago||Thanks!||
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks! And I agree with you||
Thanks! And I agree with you about the one-game playoff scenario. This is the first year I've actually looked forward to that setup.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Fruits and vegetables help||
Fruits and vegetables help diminish the effects of lead exposure in kids, yet it can be incredibly hard for kids in Flint to get them; there's no grocery store inside the city limits. Vincent's project partnered with two great organizations and is helping get a much needed resource in the hands of those who need it most. I can't wait to help him this spring and summer.

It was lighthearted banter.
Er, maybe mediumhearted banter.

Ask and ye shall receive. Gonna try to make a gif for every goal starting with the upcoming State series.

Gary-by-Gary Analysis would just be whatever "paragraphs" come from hitting my keyboard repeatedly and some gifs.

Whoops. Fixed it. That's a case where I was so concerned about that in real time that "goal good=Compher swat low" was burned into my brain, regardless of the scoresheet.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I agree with you re: those goals. A lot of perfect shots/odd deflections in this series.

D'oh. Thanks, good catch. Made changes above.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||I think both of your points||
I think both of your points are fair. The NMU goalie just really, really loved using his glove. As for Downing, I think he's been better this year. I used to get frustrated by his freelancing often, but he seems to have cut down on that and is more frequently in position and making smarter decisions with the puck.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||My buddy covers Florida and||
My buddy covers Florida and told me that Callaway and Robinson are some of the fastest receivers he's seen; they've got that SEC speed, if you will. He said Harris has had trouble getting the ball past the line of scrimmage, so that speed hasn't made a huge difference since Grier got suspended. He said he wasn't exaggerating the line of scrimmage thing either, as Harris has had a bunch of passes knocked down by D-linemen.

Thank you, Bourbon what's-yer-ABV-from-some-barrel. In all seriousness, I really do appreciate the feedback.

Hey, thanks! Should have GBGA up sometime tomorrow.
