Doesn't seem like he cares about being signed right now, probably wants to see how the draft shakes out first.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I wouldn't forget the Ducks||
I wouldn't forget the Ducks in the West, have been playing very well this year and could easily give Chicago a run for their money over 7 games. There's also Montreal and Boston out east who still have stronger goaltending than the Pens, which is the great equalizer in the playoffs.

I went to bed at one and Iggy was Boston-bound, I wake up at 9 and he's going to Pittsburgh.
I can only assume the Pens pulled the same witchcraft from when they got Crosby, Malkin, and Fleury all at once.
|13 weeks 1 hour ago||The series at Yost was||
The series at Yost was probably just before the really crappy part. Going into that series Michigan hadn't scored less than 4 goals in a game and went another weekend before scoring less than 3. After that the real crap began and they had a 6 game stretch where they scored 6 goals total and averaged 4.5 goals against, a trend which continued until basically Febuary.
That said I really like our chances, we seem to be playing out of our minds (or maybe just to our talent level). And Miami lost last weekend to FYS, which in the games I've seen them play is deservedly the worst team in the conference. Not to mention we have been lighting up some of the top goalies in the country in Slubowski and Hjelle and will need more of the same against Ryan McKay who is pretty much hands down the best goalie in hockey

He was not on the bench for the second half
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Good Assessment||
I agree with all that you said. This team just doesn't do "the little things" like they should. The refusal to dump and chase, poor board play (better tonight), losing almost all the puck battles, unable to keep the puck in the zone (often leading to odd man rushes). These are the little things that less talented teams like Bowling Green are beating us at.
There are some players doing these consistently - Copp, Sinelli, Treais, Nieves, Kevin and Travis Lunch come to mind. But as a whole they're not done enough.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||More energy overall, the||
More energy overall, the problem is when we're down there's only a few guys who keep the energy up (playing physical, getting to loose pucks, holding the Blue line etc.)

So 7 goals total on 30 shots, that's videogame type stuff

I wish there was time on ice for college hockey. Every time I look Merrill or Trouba is on the ice sometimes at the same time. Incredible
|23 weeks 4 hours ago||I'm pretty sure the player||
I'm pretty sure the player has to have graduated, that's why there are no names in the game. So probably Seth Broekhuizen right?
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed, way too many||
Agreed, way too many metaphors. Seemed like he was trying to make Bo seem like some greek god from the Odessy instead of a freak of nature athlete.

Manziel only has 1.5 sacks less than Teo.
I'm being facetious, but only a little. I wouldn't say he has "some absolutely huge sacks" when he only has 1.5. How can you say he plays the position better than anyone you've ever seen when he has the numbers more resemblant of a safety than a linebacker (yes I'm aware that numbers are only a small part of defense.)
I don't think Teo is here if his back story of what he has had to go through this year isn't attached. He got in the conversation from the MSU and Michigan games right after that happened and he had monster performances.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||If you make a conference like||
If you make a conference like that, you're generally never gonna get a National Championship appearance, short of an 8 team playoff. Oregon only has one other great school in their conference most years and they find ways to lose, then that school (this year Stanford) finds ways to lose.

Yea he's been great, but he only plays linebacker. He doesn't return punts/kicks or do anything on offense even as a decoy. Colin Klein essentially is the offense and Johnny took over for a first round draft pick, moved to a harder conference and his team is better than last year.

I hope Te'o doesn't win. I love him as a player, and he seems like a great person, but as outstanding as Woodson? I don't think so. Mathieu was far more outstanding and got 5th. You can argue that Suh's season was comparable to Te'o and he wasn't even close. If he wins it, it will not be about football it will be because of his personal story and because he goes to ND.

Jordan Kovacs was a walkon
wait this isn't a thread for repeating the same stuff

I think it's going to continue to be all about your stable of runningbacks.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||I think moffie is under||
I think moffie is under performing. Looking at the supposed lack of leadership on the team I'd say he's under performing in the area also.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||Gonna be honest, I loved||
Gonna be honest, I loved moffie last year be he's been mediocre to flat out bad this year. Really disappointing, I'd venture to say that means he isn't because being a particularly good leader

Those viscious northwestern fans. Known to look at you like they make more money than you and stuff.

Sounds great then, I'll definitely try to make it there.

But seriously, is this a trap? If not what time does it usually fill up?

All the Penn State fans I've met have been cool if you ignore the god treatment of Paterno
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Not so fast||
Last year playing BGSU was supposed to lock up a one seed, I went to the game and we lost and that was when we were playing great and IIRC their 5th win of the season on the final weekend. There are no freebies.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Probably the best news||
Probably the best news possible after the worst weekend series I've seen us play in recent memory.
Theory: He was sent to a secret government facility to learn to turn into an NHL ready goalie for the second half of the season.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed||
Can't wait for the OT:we should make a Denard legend patch to honor the next great dual threat Michigan QB!
|31 weeks 2 days ago||My thought was that they'll||
My thought was that they'll wait for someone really special for #1 (and #2) I think there will always be a #21 on the team and if someone gets to an elite level then we'll see the #1 jersey. But there won't necessarily be a #1 on every team.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||I see you have the goal horn||
I see you have the goal horn linked, I'm not a fan of it. Never thought we needed one, it's not like we need the help to make it loud after a goal.

Makes this weekend all the more important, it'd be great to get all 6 points.
