Yes, but also see above re: unicorn taming/riding skills.
|6 days 23 hours ago||I think a national search is||
I think a national search is best. If it ends up being Pearson, that's great; Tech's Corsi numbers have been outstanding the last three seasons. At the least, though, M should look at everyone and see whether a guy like Leaman, Bazin, Montgomery, or Pearson is interested.
And yes, my assumption is that Michigan can conduct a national search because of the athletic department's resources (read: money) and the program's status as one of the elite programs in college hockey, which is buoyed by that first point. Maybe a guy like Montgomery is happy in Denver. He's got a lengthy contract that's purportedly rich enough to scare away suitors (though I haven't found terms of the deal anywhere; it's a private school so they don't have to disclose that). It's worth Manuel making calls, finding out firsthand, and assuming nothing.

They did review it and, uh, yeahhhh. I'm with you. Difference between the actual game clock and what was on the broadcast, I guess. The refs actually added a little bit of time back on the clock and made the teams come back out for a faceoff.

UPDATE: Our own David Nasternak just let me know that Warren's third-period goal Friday was indeed an attempted pass; it was redirected by the PSU defenseman's stick instead of rolling off Warren's stick and in. They showed a reverse-angle replay at Yost that wasn't on the broadcast.
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||I lived a couple blocks away||
I lived a couple blocks away in undergrad and am pretty upset that I never thought of that. I loved Welcome Wednesdays. Pretty sure I dragged myself out of bed to a couple of them when I deemed myself otherwise too sick to go to class.
And yes, "pretty sure" is me hedging. I know exactly how much sway free bagels and coffee had/have over me. I have no regrets.

They posted it on their official site. Here's the link:

I'm almost certain we have that tracked. I'll ask David; he's been doing a phenomenal job tracking all of this throughout the season.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||So this is purely my||
So this is purely my interpretation, but I think he's referring to the way discharges from the NICU (or discharges in general, really) work. Once the doctors decide the baby's healthy enough to go home, you're out of there.

Hm. If I go in and fix the last two broken photos then all the GIF links break. Instead here are the two photos I was going to use in sequential order, because everyone should see more of Barron's awesome work.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||To be clear, I'm not||
To be clear, I'm not advocating they move Cole. I'm just looking at the perilously thin depth chart at tackle and wondering what things might look like if that move allows them to put the best five on the field. Thought I'd take a look at Ruiz since he factors into that heavily.

Thanks, much appreciated! Looking forward to working on more of these in the future. Here's a link to the Jourdan Lewis profile: http://mgoblog.com/content/notes-native-son

Thanks! Definitely planning to do more of these.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, and I didn't even||
Yeah, and I didn't even mention in the Lockwood section that the hit he took was a clear penalty that wasn't called. Refereeing was inconsistent this weekend.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||We did, and they apologized||
We did, and they apologized profusely. Someone there just made an honest mistake.

Hmm. Now that I think of it, this is even more embarassing than I initially thought.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Lockwood and Slaker have both||
Lockwood and Slaker have both exceeded my expectations offensively and defensively. I've been really impressed with everything they've done so far. They probably aren't going to deke a guy out of his jock, but they pressure along the boards, create turnovers, and get into good position to take a pass and score. Slaker's also been good on faceoffs.

Thanks, fixed the embed

Sure, I can do that. Appreciate the feedback.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks for that. I've gotta||
Thanks for that. I've gotta figure out why there are such discrepancies between the two. This came up recently with total tackles as well.

There's no easily streamable replay available, but if you have a cable provider that has the Pac 12 Network and a replay happens to be on, you can stream it. Here's the Pac 12 Network schedule: https://pac-12.com/live

He may not have been talking about me but my blushing is a near constant thing, so smart money is on "yes."

Though I truly appreciate that you guys think it could be me, the Adam he's referring to is Adam Biggers.

Oh yeah, now I remember why we have a "Donovan Peoples-Jones jumps over things" tag

Lines are simply an abstract division of space. I colored what I interpreted as appropriate.

I would not have accepted it, no. I was just curious about what happened.

Just wanted to poke my head in to say thank you. We've got the best readers anywhere, and to know you guys liked the piece means a ton to me.
I'm very fortunate to work somewhere where I'm allowed to try different things. Couldn't ask for a better start to profiling a player than talking to incredible people like Jourdan, Nikole, Terry, and Coach Tandy. Here's hoping this is the first of many profiles.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||David gets all the credit for||
David gets all the credit for making this post possible. I was working on something that should be posted later today, and he graciously offered to make the trip and film for us.
Oh, and it's worth noting that he got stuck in their homecoming parade. He's an MGoTrooper, that's for sure.

I love that you love it. Writing these and having the opportunity to talk to the guys are always highlights of my week.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||FWIW I agree with the above.||
FWIW I agree with the above.
