Just learned that Motte was a Blackhawks draft selection. Damnit.

Great to hear that he's got such a good head on his shoulders off the field too. Good work ethic will go a long ways in all aspects of life.

Looks like Mitchell and Davis are fans of the Big Chill jerseys.

Wasn't Gentry Harbaugh's first QB recruit?

Max Power, Rock Strongo, or Lance Uppercut for me.

This goes for all players immediately.

Mike Hastings of Minnesota State? Jeff Brown of the Indiana Ice? Mark Carlson of the Cedar Rapids Roughriders? These aren't my favorites but I'm trying to look around and see what could be. I like Bennett and Pearson the most.
|1 week 2 days ago||Rick Bennett is a real good||
Rick Bennett is a real good candidate. His roots are out east but he has done a crazy good job at Union in a very short time. I could definitely get behind hiring him.
Bennett also has that quality hockey coach scowl.

Norm Bazin also went from UMass Lowell player, to UMass Lowell Assistant Coach, to UMass Lowell Head Coach. I wouldn't be sure he's interested in leaving his alma mater.
|1 week 2 days ago||That would be Rand Pecknold||
That would be Rand Pecknold at Quinnipiac. He's been there for 21 years and went to college in Connecticut. He's doing a nice job there for sure, but I don't think that's somebody who is leaving his current gig.
|1 week 2 days ago||Michigan Tech was abysmal||
Michigan Tech was abysmal when he took over there. They had won 6, 5, and 4 games in the three years prior to his hiring. I believe he was big into scouting and recruiting players in his years here so he has a long history of connections in the area.
I think Pearson is certainly a good candidate, but I'd be curious to know who some other good ones would be. I'm not especially well-informed into the rest of the college hockey world so I can't say I know what's out there.

Don't be delusional. We know that all the top programs do these things to some extent.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm not saying that makes me||
I'm not saying that makes me an expert or something, but I know that I've accidentally collided with people before. Raising your hands to brace for it at the last moment is pretty normal. It's just like if you fall. You put your hands out to protect yourself.

Whoa... Bear Vs Shark. You're really bringing the blast from the past today.

I play too and it looks like the latter to me, and he absolutely should not have been cleared to return.
|1 week 4 days ago||In real time he puts his||
In real time he puts his hands up and moves a bit to the side at the last moment. His body language doesn't make this look intentional. It makes it look like he was dazed and unaware of his surroundings.
|1 week 4 days ago||This is the kind of||
This is the kind of reactionary nonsense that made a lot of people say that Bertuzzi should never play another game.

I thought people actually talked about college football here. My mistake. I guess we're just jerking eachother off.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||So you're staking your||
So you're staking your internet reputation of predicting college football? Wow. No thanks. We'll all be better off just not giving a fuck instead.

The classic Michigan preseason overhype is back!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Goddamn, that is some pompous||
Goddamn, that is some pompous homer talk.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Under that logic Michigan||
Under that logic Michigan should had at least one more loss this season because Indiana, and Minnesota. Being able to find wins in close games is important. Is OSU's 2002 national championship worth less because they won a bunch of games on the foot of Mike Nugent?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||If you're not putting||
If you're not putting anything up for it as a bet then you're just trying to set yourself so say "I called it." So, who cares if you're predicting it? People predict the same thing every year.

You still need a cable tv subscription for that.

Beating Michigan in 2013 and 2014 certainly would not indicate being good.

Why should we have surpassed that? We won 2 of the 3 really tight games we had.

Yup, but I still think his stock went up after that game.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I know it isn't full decade||
I know it isn't full decade but 2008 to 2014 produced a combined record of just over .500, so it's pretty easy to see where he's coming from. Same record as Oregon State. Slightly better than Duke.
