I continue to wonder how all of these schools get away with blatant disregard for the rules and Michigan was penalized for stretchgate. Even the Chris Webber saga - he was paid because Fisher looked the other way. The school was punished so brutally that our hoops program took over a decade to recover and honestly, we're not recovered fully because we used to be elite and we're not even close to that right now. That said, I'd LOVE Manuel to raise those Fab Five banners, as a kind of F U to the NCAA. We recognize those Final Fours - they happened, just as much as Auburn's national championship with Cam Newton. Deal with it!

Things like this make me wonder why we'd abide by the satellite camp ban. Fuck the NCAA and their rules - what are they going to do?

I had a dream this weekend that Compher was staying. I fucking hate my dreams.

Seven straight wins. A win tomorrow would give us 2 straight conference sweeps!

What coach was responsible for Villanova's defense? Their defense in the tournament was fantastic.

I said this the other night and I'll keep saying it - it's time to part ways with Ken Holland and bring Stevie Y home.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I wondered why Jordan would||
I wondered why Jordan would leave for UWM - he was a finalist for the Butler job a couple years back and I thought he could do better than UWM. I guess a head coaching job is a head coaching job.

Lots of TB pressure against - surprise - Tatar and Nyquist. Boy those guys have fallen off. Defensive liabilities and so easy to knock off the puck. When they were scoring consistently those items were overlooked. But now that they don't score? Man, no wonder we barely snuck into the playoffs.

"And here with the play by play is Ernie Harwell."

Should be an interesting season. Well at least Michigan Hockey Summer is happening early so my actual summer isn't filled with disappointing news.

Wings are now stuck in a cycle of mediocrity. Got rid of Babcock last year. It may be time to wave goodbye to Holland.

With Judge in the title, I thought maybe we were getting Antoine Joubert, Jr. or something. Oh well.

Well that sucks.

I hope he succeeds. I was a freshman when the Fab 5 were freshmen and I remember those teams fondly.

Best 25 game start since 1987. Go Blue!

Congratulations! Now let's get her NCAA Championship #2!

Both baseball and softball playing very well.

Hard to say this is Beilein's fault because you don't leave a spot open on the off-chance a senior needs to redshirt. And we're not the type of program to run people off (and we're one spot over as it is).

I wish we could play defense like Villanova.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Now the question, besides if||
Now the question, besides if Red retires, is who returns of the underclassmen. I think Werenski is a lock to leave and Connor is maybe 90% gone (although after seeing him against upper level competition perhaps he would consider one more year). I think both Compher and Motte return, but who knows. Downing may also leave. And who is the goalie next year? Nagelvort is back, but do we have someone coming in?
Scoring could be tough if Compher and Motte go with Connor because Boo and Selman are seniors. I think Alex Kile could have a great senior season though.

Michigan should have beat ND in the first round. Now they're in the Elite 8 somehow. UNC should roll them by 20+, but will probably lose.

Steve Racine was absolutely HUGE in this game and deserves big props! Go Blue!

Besides that 2nd ND goal, Racine has been terrific.

I didn't see those end of season OSU games, but of the games I've seen, that was BY FAR the worst period of hockey I've seen us play. We were dominated and are lucky to be down only one.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Three times, in my opinion,||
Three times, in my opinion, we were the best team in the nation and didn't win it all: 1994, 1997 and 2008. In '94 and '08, Jeff Jackson's teams beat us. Today is some payback.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Not only an awesome goal, but||
Not only an awesome goal, but timely. We won a one goal game against the Gophers on our way to the national title in 1996. I think Legg's goal tied that game.

#1 seeds host regionals. Reward a good season, crowds will be good, energy and excitement better than the empty buildings they play regionals in now and bitching limited since it's rewarding the 1 seeds. Easy, peasy, get it done.
