... and he's ours. He's like the younger sibling that you roll your eyes at... who constantly tags along correcting you and your friends with obscure grammar rules. You give him hell at times but you'd defend him without a second thought because he's family.

Any chance they can get Kenny Powers to MC this bitch?

It's a lot more gray than that. I know the way the USAH hockey rulebook (and I believe NHL is the same) is written, linesman give their interpretation of a penalty to the ref at stoppage of play, even in situations when nothing was called by the ref... and certainly that can lead to a penalty. They also help to determine the level of penalty called (minor, souble minor, major, misconduct etc.) However, you never see linesman raising their arm and intiating a stoppage in play for a penalty.
On this particular play, I seriously doubt Wideman was going after this particular linesman. Anyone that has played/watched a lot of hockey knows these shoves near the benches during changes happen double digit times per game. Wideman is not a notrious dirty player... the most logical explanation to me is his bell was rung, he was disoriented when he got near the bench and mistook the ref for a predators player. The league is in an odd place here, because if they don't suspend Wideman, than they obviously believe he was disoriented... at which point they need to explain why he was allowed to stay in the game.

Or the mascot-less '91 team... Marcus Kennedy with the killer goggles and the Thomas twins. That was a pretty crazy decade for college bball in Ann Arbor/Ypsi.

Most surprising thing here is that none of the Buckeyes seem to know how to pick a lock.

Fun fact: he lived a couple of houses down and delivered my parents newspaper back before I was born.
One of Eric's teammates on the Cincinatti Bengals was 3-time all pro TE Rodney Holman... another YHS alum.
While they did not attend YHS, the Jenkins brothers (Kris and Cullen) spent a few years in Ypsi public schools.

Another thing to remember, the top 10 of the NHL draft is always dominated by CHL (Canadian major-junior) kids, with a few Euro's sprinkled in. The CHL kids get a lot more exposure early on because they get drafted at 15 versus the kids that go the AAA/USHL/NCAA route. The 2015 NHL draft where you had 3 NCAA players in the top 10 was an anomaly.

He has said in the past that his contract that runs through the end of this season will likely be his last, but I don't believe he has made a definitive statement yet that he is retiring after this year.

Is the 8th grade cutoff due to NCAA rules?
edit: I guess I should have read it more carefully as it states "Per Compliance regulations." There goes my idea of using the kids club as a front for impermissible benefits. Imagine the recruits we could land with free field hockey tickets?

Was his 2nd go around simply him walking in with the artistic renderings... saying "Nike, bitches!"... dropping the mic and walking out?

According to this:
Michigan’s existing third-party agreements can continue, as long as they are not purchased from competitors Under Armour, Adidas, Reebok and Puma.
Much of Michigan's hockey gear is ccm... a subsidiary of Reebok. Thus I'm assuming they will be moving to primarily Bauer, or maybe Warrior for their protective gear. Unsure how they handle skates/sticks... skates especially can be very tought for a player to move between brands/models, they all fit so differently.

President Schlissel also deserves some love. Comes in to a tough situation, everyone is worried he is going to diminish the importance of atheltics... "fires" Brandon... hits the home run with Hackett and allows him to bring our boy home.

You forgot to add in the upfront $12 mil signing bonus... $12 + $76.8 + $80.2 = $169
Also, according to the article, the $169 is figured over 15 years not 11... so the $169 assumes Michigan signs the 4 year extension option at the end of year 11.

with regards to hockey. Nike left the hockey business in 2008 when they sold their susidiary, Bauer.

Is Michigan required to maintain a certain percentage of instate undergrads? I wonder what effect the decrease and stagnation of the Michigan population since the recession will have on the admission averages in the next decade.

$58 million per year ($1 million for every football victory over OSU) plus a stipulaiton that nike must add "cooler poopers" to the tag of every OSU jersey they make.
