They've been up and down in the last 10. They were an overtime goal from a National Championship 3 years ago and in the Frozen Four 3 years prior to that, so to say that they've been a disappointment for 10 years isn't totally true. They haven't really sustained success, but it's really these few years that are exceptionally bad.

Michigan is a top 5 college hockey coaching destination. I'd definitely put BC, Minnesota, and North Dakota right up at the top, but those places aren't looking for coaches because they're perennial contenders like Michigan used to be. Recently, Michigan is perennially mediocre. The state of Michigan is ripe with hockey talent that is second maybe only to Minnesota. Is it reasonable for a program to have a year where things don't come together and you don't make the tournament? Sure. 2 years? 3 years? Recruiting seems like it should be easy here, but if you start to graduate a bunch of NHL draftees who never even played in the NCAA tournament, I'd understand that top talent not wanting to come here.

I find that hard to believe. He even turned down the Tech job to stay at Michigan initially. I'd be very surprised if he turned away the job if offered.

Hockey. But like football, they are massively underachieving for the 3rd year in a row.

Everybody took the trend and ran too hard with it. Somebody is wearing special uniforms every weekend. It used to grab attention but now it seems like every FBS team either wears a special uni once a year or has interchangable helmet/pant/jersey combos. It's pretty easy to not care who's wearing matte helmets or black jerseys each week.

The upside is that I'm now super impressed with what Mel Pearson has done at Michigan Tech. In just a few years he's turned them from an absolute bottom-dweller to starting the season with sweeps of LSSU, Ferris, and Michigan. I hope Mel keeps tearing it up and Red realizes that 3 years removed from the tournament is unacceptable while bringing in the best recruits in the conference. Red is a legend, but if this doesn't say "it's time to hang 'em up" then I don't know what does.

Okay. This is funny, right? Because I think this quote is funny.

*Worst team in the Big Ten.
Illinois is the only other team 0-2 in the Big Ten, but they have 3 overall wins.

I might not watch the entirety of another game this year. I left my living room to go play hockey during the Utah game. I left to go running during the Minnesota game. It's more enjoyable to not watch than to watch. There's no reason to think they're going to build on anything this year and bowl eligibility is a dream. Michigan hockey starts Saturday though. Go blue.

You can see that it's just an effect because it also goes over his arm. It's not the offseason anymore, people. You don't need to look for the most insignificant thing to panic over anymore.

Very nice. I'm not sad to see the GLI jerseys go. I wasn't a big fan of those.
I'm still waiting for these to make an appearance though.

The blue pants are really the biggest change. It's really pretty negligible for people to get up in arms about, but that's the way it goes. You do anything slightly different and it's all "rabble rabble." I think these look better than the Outback Bowl unis, Cowboy Classic unis, or white alternates against MSU.

Copp intentionally stops play to allow senior Adam Janecyk into the game. Cool move.

Minor league sports are all about gimmicks to get people into the seats. Those are more about being funny and playful than making an actual uniform. Star Wars night is a common one. Ghostbusters is new to me, so at least it's got that going for it.

If you think that's the worst part, you clearly don't understand just how bad these are.
|38 weeks 6 days ago||These were created years ago||
These were created years ago and have looked through quite a bit of Mr Design Junkie's stuff in a can't-stop-looking-at-this-train-wreck sort of stupor. They are, hands down, the worst uniform designs I've ever seen. They're not just terrible ideas, but are terribly executed from a technical standpoint. It actually bums me out that this garbage gets any attention at all.

For you, the design is old and out of style. For current students, it's retro. Welcome to feeling old.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||They got screwed. The refs||
They got screwed. The refs took 17 seconds to reset the ball. Part of the reason that it took 17 seconds was because ASU jumped on the ball after the whistle for some reason. That should have been delay of game on the defense, which would have meant that Wisconsin could have just taken their 5 yards and trotted the field goal unit onto the field for a chip shot to win the game. Wisconsin fans should be furious.

Yup. I remember seeing this before. It's actually a really nice design for what it was intended to be; a logo and not a mascot. I get that people are trashing it because they don't want a mascot but it's a really solid design for shirts and hats. Nice work by jjscott and...

I don't think I ever wanted a win for an individual player as badly as I wanted Michigan to beat Minnesota Duluth for the sake of Shawn Hunwick. His story and what he accomplished is amazing, but it would have been all-time college hockey lore if they had won. I'm done now. I don't want to think about it.

I really hope not. Michigan could stand to build some continuity in the team right now. Sounds like things look good for Compher to stay though, right?

I camped up near Munising/Pictured Rocks, went on some little hikes, and went swimming in Lake Superior last summer and hope to do it again. It's a gorgeous place and doesn't hurt the wallet.
