The guy who ran the live blog was yours truly. Thanks for the comments. Jason is a nice guy to work for. I miss the live blog and covering the team. I was also a paid intern for TheWolverine.com for the next season after that.
Jason moved to Florida and had a child, and Tim is busy with work. It's a shame, because there's really a dearth of coverage related specifically to hockey now.
I grew up going to Yost, am a proud Alum, and I love covering the hockey team. Especially when I have to be objective about it. Unfortunately, the two years I covered were the two years they missed the Tournament.
I'm currently working on a master's degree in Broadcast Journalism from Syracuse right now, so my hope is that you'll hear and see me again in the future!

|3 years 21 weeks ago||For someone who was so quick||
For someone who was so quick to completely quit covering the hockey team, I find it rather ironic that Brian labeled the hockey team a "failure," as they kept playing and he stopped writing.
If you can't appreciate what this team did when everyone around them gave up--Brian included--then you don't deserve to be a fan while they're winning. Did Self-Righteous "I'm-Always-Right-Because-I-Founded-MGoBlog" Brian actually think the streak would last forever? If he did, he was lying to himself.
I'll be reading my hockey coverage at The Wolverine from now on. In fact, I don't read MGoBlog for much of anything anymore. The self-professed "king" and founding father of Michigan blogs simply gave up, and is actually quite a terrible human being in person based on how he treated people I know. Don't believe me? Ask around.
He encapsulates all characteristics of the quintessential Michigan fan/Alum: arrogance, knowledge, entitlement, and fearing the worst at all times while never appreciating the good, nor ever thinking "good" is good enough.

The first time we've been swept in Kalamazoo since the year I was born. Relieved that I chose to go hang out and meet new people in Rochester Hills, rather than run the Michigan Hockey Net live-blog in Kalamazoo and cover this horrendous hockey. There are a lot of issues here: Janecyk clearly not being the answer; no secondary scoring to speak of; last but not least, no mental toughness when things go awry. The most troubling trend of all: we've had leads in just about all of these road losses. Streaks are made to be broken. You can't have 2-plus decades of dominance last forever. As a blogger, I have to be honest, but fair. As an Alumnus, it breaks my heart like nothing you know.
In any event, excited about what the U.S. NTDP is bequeathing us for next season!

I was born in '86 and graduated a few years ago. I have very foggy memories of the '89 team as well as the two Final Four teams, so a National Championship would be one of the biggest Michigan moments I've witnessed in my lifetime, right next to the National Championship in football, hockey's two crowns, and numerous Frozen Fours (disappointments). It would put Michigan Basketball back in the realm of a national power, give us free range in recruiting, and tell Sparty to suck a big one. In my opinion, Final Fours mean nothing unless you win the hardware. I constantly remind my MSU friends that Izzo has the same number of titles as Steve Fisher: one. He's vastly overrated.
This would put us back on top!

Broken down like that, yes, it isn't too bad. Then you throw in the NIT Tip-off, Big Ten/ACC game, and it softens the blow.
Still seems a bit much, im comparison to what I paid my first year as a season ticket holder last year. I'm also in the Upper Bowl, still haven't changed locations. Knocking off a hundred bucks would seem more reasonable. I was too busy with football, hockey, and a million other things in undergrad, so I never got around to basketball then.
But hey, I want my Michigan Basketball, so I guess I pay it. Ticket prices just keep going up and up.

The worst part? Trying to flag a cab down after the game. Event staff told us to go to one area, where there'd be "20 cabs all lined up for you."

Said we had nothing to be ashamed of, and that Michigan burned their secondary. Will root for us, and they don't expect us to lose another game.

Huge fan of the Alien franchise, could not wait to see this. As Stanley Kubrick is also my favorite director, I was hoping this would be Ridley Scott's 2001 film (meaning of life, religion, origin of species).
Like many have said, I was disappointed, but not totally let down. The set design and visuals were vintage Ridley Scott (extravagantly-built sets, sweeping cinematography, eerie shots), but the writing and character development just felt bland and without a purpose. There were many moments where I'm asking myself, "What is the point of this scene?" Usually, it should be to advance character or story, and very few did so organically, and only for the sake of moving ahead. Other than a few scenes (fantastic acting by Rapace and Fassbender), nothing really gripped me.
I know the whole "plot-hole-within-a-plot-hole" is what Lindelof does, but he did not craft a script that was worthy of the expecations of this film, nor what Ridley Scott is deserving of. Makes you wonder how Fox and Ridley ok'd his treatment.
Too many questions. Not enough answers. Not only in the sense that "There are questions, therefore, there should be answers," but in terms of causality in the narrative. SO many things in the film don't follow logically as they should.

The expectations for next year just took a huge hit. He's been one of my favorite players. After reading all of the articles and watching all of the segments on what a huge Michigan Hockey fan he was growing up, I thought for sure he'd want to stay, graduate, and make a run for a National Championship next season. I mean, would you really trade your senior year at Michigan, playing in Yost, for riding a bus in the AHL?
I can understand when some of the younger players (out of those 20 that have jumped ship since 2000), have done it, but not when you're a rising senior. He's got the hands and the size to make an impact, though, so best of luck.

I'm with you on that. But Brian's words ring true: too many Senior Night flags, not enough banners hanging in Yost. I think we all expected AT LEAST two more NC's the past decade-plus. We certainly had the talent to do it.
As it does to a lot of people inside Yost, hockey means more to me than football, mostly because I remember my first game there as a kid in 1998. There was just something about Michigan Hockey that felt unique, passionate, reserved for those hardcore, chosen few sitting inside the old barn.
I guess that's why the disappointments have been so magnified. Every year, before hockey season starts, I hope and pray that THIS YEAR WILL BE THE YEAR we finally win another National Championship. 2012? We have as good a chance as anyone.

Just because I don't get to Yost early enough to sit over there, does not diminish mine, or anyone else's, contributions to the crowd.
FWIW, I consider the "Children of Yost" the entire student section. But I will give Section 17 their due for all they've done. This is a great idea, well done.

When I was at Munn for a game in 2010, I had quite the heavyset MSU chick in front of me, unprovoked, challenge me to a fight after we won. My brother and father were with me as well, so they can vouch for this.
I'm going to Munn again this Friday; always prepare for the worst, hope for the best.

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?

It was Gazley. And yes, I am in complete agreement: I cannot wait for the move to the B1G. I'll be sending mass e-mails to the Big Ten's offices in Chicago to prevent the hiring of CCHA "officials." Keith Sergott and Brian Aaron are especially clueless, and/or idiotic. My thinking is, if the B1G actually PAYS its officials, they'll be encouraged to be held accountable for their actions at the risk of reprimand or termination. Something the CCHA has never been able to hold over the head of its band of clowns.

The Brown-Guptill-Wohlberg line is really impressing me: Brownie has shown signs of life; Guptill's got hands like a Hensick; and Wohlberg putting shots top shelf.
That PP needs to be jettisoned and started over from scratch.

Billet played out of his mind for BC. Outside of some scrambling in the 2nd period, this was the best game I've seen us play all year. Treais, Glending, and Pateryn get votes for best players in this one.

I hate the fact that we're labeled as not loud; it bugs me to no end. All of my years as a student, I did everything I could to make noises.
I am now an Alumnus who is not rich enough to buy season tickets, so I've been ushering the past two seasons. Even in my "official capacity," I make noises. Even if the old lady usher I work with claims the "clapping hurts my ears."

I'm a recent Alumnus, and was a student season ticket holder for all four years. I still live in AA, and called the Ticket Office last week about buying public season tickets for the first time. I don't know about individual tickets, but they had me sign up for "M-Mail" to receive more information, and also told me that plenty of season ticket packages are available, and I should be getting an e-mail about purchasing in late August.

Red is one of the most quality--and most classy--individuals I've ever met. I met him in person as a student many times, and even got a stick signed by him. I was inquiring about employment within the AD at one point, and he was kind enough to personally respond with an e-mail, replying with, "I'd be glad to circulate your resume around the AD." Go Red, Go Blue!

I know, but I meant it in the sense that that's all he and Comley did. 2007 was basically anomalous, compared to the rest of his tenure. Most MSU people I know have readily admitted that title was a fluke.

I grew up with those Wings' teams of the late 90's and 00's, (I'm now 24), and I was always of the opinion that Ozzy was the perennial 'weak link' in those great teams. He gave up some absolutely soft goals that are still burned into my memory, but now that the HoF debate has come up, I think I have to put my Ozzy-detractor inclinations aside.
I think I have to put those bad goals out of mind, and look at how he responded to them. What did he do during the '98 playoffs? He won a Stanley Cup. 400 wins, great playoff performances, etc.
Ozzy, I'm sorry I ever doubted you. You have my blessing, you deserve to be in. Hindsight's always 20/20.
