I have absolutely no interest in this year's tournament. I don't care about any of these teams...

|7 weeks 6 days ago||Howard is hurt...||
Back injury....Donovon is on a sabbatical, no idea if he will ever play for the MNT again, but you should expect Howard back once he is healed up.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||oh man...||
I want this one bad...to have the US go down there and win one that really counts for something is on my sports bucket list (of things I have absolutely no control over)
That said, I think Mexico wins unfortunately...
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I like it...||
hopefully more will be on TV
|8 weeks 3 hours ago||I see I am being a tiny bit hypocritical...||
my bad lol. Alright let me rephrase it then (I am trying to not sound like an ass here): I don't think anyone in this is being a bad fan unless you are directly calling someone else a bad fan.
In terms of being proud of how the season ended, I think people are being too proud of it. Sure, be kind of glad they did not roll over and played with a pulse...but I think that says all that hs to be said about this season and why I think the good feelings should really be toned down. This team had the talent all year and drastically underacheived and decided to play how they were supposed too and able too at the end. Like I said before, I am fine with how they played and happy that they did not roll over and showed a pule, etc. But I also believe that this should seriously be tempored in the context of the entire season. I believe that you can't seperate the first 3/4ths or the last 1/4th like it seems people on both sides are doing right now. If I did not make that point clear originally, that is my mistake (because judging by your responses I didn't and that is my fault)
Also, people aren't going to abandon the hockey program because of one bad year. It happens, but nothing too crazy like a scandal or anything caused this. Calling this season what it was is not going to hurt us next year from a support perspective. If anything, Basketball's success is going to hurt fan support (in terms of the choice between the two) and attendence of hockey games more than anything else. Most people can't spend money on both and Basketball is the new hottness.

I am glad they didn't bend over and just mail it in. It was nice seeing them play with a little pride for a change. However, I think people are feeling too proud over a run that really didn't do anything other than give us watchable hockey for a month. Sure it was nice, but if you combine that with the entire season, it was not nearly enough (for me at least).
My comments are more towards people who are taking shots at guys like Brian and others who feel that this season was a failure and that we are not true fans, etc.
Also, sure the team should focus on all the good at the end, blah blah blah. We aren't the team, I was a paying customer for a few of the games this season...and that was the most of my involvement. I don't have to sit here and only think of the positive as some sort of silver lining because in the end, my view of this program is that they should be winning championships. They won't every year, I don't expect that...but those are the standards of this program established by those who have worn the jersey, and when they don't accomplish raisining banners, it is a failure. I think it is just as wrong to be blindly positive by the end streak and ignore the failures.
|8 weeks 4 hours ago||Oh one of my favorite bits...||
one group of fans diasgreeing with another group and therefore saying they are not true fans...total garbage
Michigan Hockey has been a gold standard in the sport over the past 22 years, and with that standard comes expectations. This team failed at every single one of them.
- Did not win the GLI
- Did not win the CCHA regular season
- Did not win the CCHA Tournament
- Did not make the NCAA Tournament/Frozen Four
- Did not win a National Championship
Guys, come on...this season was a debacle that had a little sunshine at the end. Based on the standards that this program has set for itself by past success, this year was a total disaster. They hung up no banners, they accomplished nothing. Admitting this does not make you a bad fan, or a fair weather fan...it makes you a fan that actually pays attention to the program.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||yes, he is GREAT, no doubt||
However, I don't think there is anything wrong in saying some hope he has more balanced game getting everyone else more involved. This team is most dangerous when Burke gets everyone involved. Burke is responsibile for most of it by finding open guys created by driving and kicking (most of the time). There is nothing wrong with saying we hope he is not taking 30 shots because in the end, when he doesn't and is finding everyone on the court, our team is a legit national title contender.
I personally don't believe the hero ball comment is a knock on Burke, it is just a way of saying we hope the team has a more balanced attack because that is when they are the most dangerous.
