|2 years 25 weeks ago||Recovery Time||
I had a herniated disc for years and it finally caught up to me this summer. I went under the knife September 4th for a laminectomy and a microdiskectomy. I was completely out of action for two weeks and spent the next two weeks playing catch-up. I golfed on October 3 (against my doctor's advice) without pain and with full strength. I was cleared to play hockey (non-check) at the beginning of November. I was in physical therapy from October to December and was discharged before Christmas. I'm back to full strength with minimal pain now.
That being said, he's younger and in better shape than I am, though this may be mitigated by the fact that jumping and running on hardwood may be absolute hell on the back (in fact, my herniation came the day after I played ball).
So....he could definitely be back full strength by Tournament time.

Having seen just the board title I knew this was going to be about my Alma Mater. During my years in school I believe we won 4 games, all of them my senior year. I went to one football game. It was miserable. Suffice to say we're more of soccer and lacrosse school than football. Those teams actually have tryouts.
And if it makes it better (or much, much worse), WJ's fight song is to the tune of Across the Field. Thankfully I had enough beer in college to completely forget how it goes.

Been staring at TSN's Tradecentre all day. Three lines read February 27. This is not what I wanted for my Monday.

Lager. They don't have lagers. Seriously. They don't.

You can't get a good lager there. There are zero real actual good German or German-style lagers on their extensive menu. Incredibly disappointing. Always bothered me about that place.

So like....can the NCAA just accept OSU's self-imposed sanctions, which admit to major violations, then turn around this Fall, issue a new Notice of Allegations regarding the stuff SI turned up, call it another major violation of the same issues previously stated and give OSU the death penalty?

You should check the MGoBoard so you don't post dumb shit we've already read, Brian.

Evidently, I don't check the NCAA rules often enough. +1 to you, sir.
And yes, I did spend the better part of the past 8 minutes downloading the NCAA Hockey Rules .pdf. Rule 4-9-b, pg. HR-49 for those playing along at home.

Fine, it was a trip. But last I checked (and I check quite often), a goal scored on a delayed penalty waives the penalty.

I haven't been able to catch too many games this year on tv, but holy crap I understand what Brian is referring to when he said this team can't score goals like they used to. I miss Chad Kolarik.

HOW THE FUCK IS THERE A GOAL AND A PENALTY. Awesome commentary by BTN here. We don't even know what the penalty is. This is horseshit.

Thanks, couldn't find it on the board.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||ARGHHHH||
The goal was WAIVED, or WAVED OFF. Specifically, the goal was "washed out" by giving the "washout signal".

Re: touching the puck vs. clearing the puck in the Miami game, if the referee said he blew the whisle due to Reichard (Knapp? Was that Knapp I don't recall) having control of the puck and thus ending the play on the delayed penalty, he is a bald-faced liar. There needs no rule change there - the ref simply needs to not be a raging idiot.
OTOH - If the referee blew the whisle because he lost sight of the puck (due to the goaltender having it moslty covered), the whistle was the correct call.
In conclusion: no rule change, yes raging idiot change.

I'm not playing devil's advocate here, I'm just a referee. Once you lose sight of the puck, you blow the whistle. That's the rule.
That being said, the referee was in a terrible position and he should have been able to see the puck.

ND 08 hurt so much more. We were the 1 seed. We were the best team in the country. We had the Hobey winner. Billy was solid. We torched Niagara and Clarkson.
This was a good team, sure. They made a terrific run and fought their asses off. It was a shitty way to end it, sure. But really, we shouldn't have even been here. So for the first time I can remember watching Michigan play hockey, I'm surprisingly okay with it.
Next year will be great.

The game IS being carried on MASN. I just called up their office and the programming lady said they were carrying the game (although she couldn't figure out how to pronounce 'Bemidji').
