that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

So proud of my alma mater, which has had another great appearance in the NCAA tournament. I was a freshman when RIT made the Frozen Four in 2010 and the atmosphere on campus and in Rochester was electric.
Hockey is the only Division I sport at RIT and in Rochester, so there is a strong following of current students and alumni. It was great watching the game today and hearing the band and Corner Crew.
I think Atlantic Hockey has been steadily improving over the years. It's not on par with the other conferences by any means, but the teams are becoming more competitive.

Well, I'll be cheering for my RIT Tigers. The last time they made the NCAA tournament (2010) as the lowest-seeded team they made the Frozen Four.
It'd be great to see them pull of another upset or two this year. Senior forward Matt Garbowsky is a Hobey Baker finalist and is having a great year.
The Tigers are playing their best hockey of the season so it should at least be entertaining.

Fisch was in a tough situation with Jacksonville this season. His offense had a rookie quarterback, two rookie offensive linemen and three rookie wide receivers all starting or playing significant snaps.
Some people think he was the fall guy for HC Gus Bradley. The Jags were bad on offense this season but didn't have much to work with, having so many green players.
Players, including Blake Bortles, were shocked when they heard he was fired. I think he's a solid OC but a sacrificial lamb.
Either way, he has experience in major college football and the NFL. Seems like a decent candidate.

That's a good point. I like the evening games getting done early but my wife - who loves football - doesn't appreciate me waking her up at 10 a.m. on Saturdays for Michigan games. She was all about noon kickoffs.

I'm with Harbaugh on this. A good Ohio State team adds to the rivalry and enhances the conference's profile.
Like it or not, college football is still a sport governed by perception. A strong conference and division are good for Michigan if we really want a team that can compete for, and win, national championships.
That said, I won't be the least bit upset if Oregon runs Ohio State off the field and wins by 30.

I've got to represent MST. Having lived in New York the rest of my life, moving to Utah this past year opened my eyes to East Coast bias. It's real, man.

I'm looking forward to the first game next year because I recently moved to Salt Lake City and can basically walk to Rice-Eccles stadium from my new house.

Is it bad that this is so good that I'm still skeptical? Can't wait to see him in maize and blue.

Thank you for the reminder we all take these things a little too seriously. I feel appropriately admonished for my miniature panic attack. Well done!

I very rarely post on this site (as my point total will attest), but I visit every day and always read the comments and message boards. The vitriol on the site this year was a new and unpleasant development and I'm glad Brian is addressing the issue.
That being said, there isn't a better Michigan sports site and I'm thankful that Mgoblog exists. Kudos to Brian, Ace, Seth and everyone else that contributes to make this site such a success.

Of course the hookers are nowhere to be found. Just as James planned all along...

They'll be available at https://www.rithockey.com/ but I don't believe they're going to be up for sale for at least another week. Season tickets go on sale 8/12 so I imagine it won't be too long after.

Just wondering if you could quantify what 300 rage is? Are we talking Hulk levels yet? I know we've been getting linemen with a nasty streak, but that still seems a bit high for Magnuson to be aiming.

Anyone going to the RIT game is welcome to come track me down! It's always a big event-Blue Cross Arena holds over 10,000 and it's been sold out the past two years. I'll be cheering for the Tigers though

While trying to navigate away from this horrible news, I accidently bookmarked it. Not the thing I want to be able to find easily. I'm not past the denial stage yet!

Yeah, my general response to Iron Man 2 was the same.

Quite the day. Iron Man 3 trailer drops, Gardner gets his redshirt, Chavez dies, the Dow Jones breaks records. It's been a busy day on Twitter, that's for sure.

If Browns fans managed to get Peyton Hillis on the cover of Madden, Michigan fans should be able to get Denard on the cover of NCAA 14. Do your civic duty - get out and vote!

I agree- the spread was exciting and was certainly a change of pace after years of Lloydball. I think feeling at peace has more to do with the future under Hoke and Borges than it does disrespecting the spread.

I'm not entirely sure that's what Brian meant...but bravo nevertheless.

Having been a fan of Denard doing Denard things, I never thought I would feel so blissfully at peace watching us line up in I-form, interior line deficiencies notwithstanding.
