Trevor Lewis didn't want to come to Michigan to play school.

Remember that time about five years Dean Lombardi said Michigan has no clue how to coach defensemen and we all laughed because Michigan had so much success and the Kings were terrible?
Kind of interesting to look back at that now.

Raft did get to call the Final Four on the radio last year(and presumably previous years). I actually got into my car and drove around a little to listen to him call the game rather than sit at home and listen to Steve Kerr.

I just don't think Nebraska happens any time in the foreseeable future.
Trev Alberts cut UNO's football and wrestling programs--for no real good reason--to help revitalize the walk-on programs at UNL. In return, UNO, got to be the "hockey school" in the state, complete with their own brand new on-campus arena which opens next year.
Maybe the situation changes some day, but it will be a while.

I don't know if you missed it or it wasn't worthy, but I was kind of hoping to see Dawkins' almost-put back slam dunk in the first half. If he had made that, it would have been the top play for the game, and maybe the season.

I think Michigan went the first eight and a half minutes without a shot on goal in the second period.
Also, Doug MacLeod referenced Ufer because there's nothing in his reference back after the year 1980.

They moved the needle, but in the wrong direction. There was really no reason they should have been playing at a school like Michigan State except for their last name. A good example of how that program absolutey rotted from within under Rick Comley.
Anastos probably will get fired this year or next, but he hasn't been terrible. He took over a team with terrible talent and had no resources to improve things. Michigan State is going to be bad as long as the school is more concerned about multi-million dollar upgrades to their basketball facilities every decade than anything concerning the hockey program.
It's too bad for Michigan too. The Big 10 is basically Atlantic Hockey with much better marketing this year because three of the six programs in the conference could not care less about hockey. It's hard to take Zach Hyman seriously as a Hobey candidate when he's only scored three points all season against teams currently inside the NCAA tournament bubble and he won't play another decent team until the NCAA tournament.

Well that's the ugliest phrase I'll read all day.

Hollins is going through the same turf toe issue that Derrick Walton is. You can definitely see where it has slowed both players down and affected their shooting.

Just curious, but how many of the "At least Moeller won" folks were around and remember that era?
History is much kinder to Moeller's on-field record than people were at the time. There was a certain segment that was not happy with back-to-back 8-4 seasons, and there was feeling that Michigan could get 'over the hump' if they just had a real coach.(Which is why Ann Arbor Torch and Pitchfork did pretty nice business when Lloyd was hired).
It seasons silly to think about now after nearly a decade of irrelevance, but those were different times for Michigan football. Moeller's incident was embarrassing, and he didn't handle the aftermath very well, but the guy had one bad night. Two of the big three coaches at Michigan have DUIs, which I consider worse since at least Moeller didn't try to drive, and nobody really cares. If Moeller had better support at the time, he probably would have survived.
I think with hindsight, people can see that Moeller was probably treated a little unfairly at the time, and that's why his legacy isn't as tarnished.

Werenski and Downing are on the bubble. Larkin and Compher are locks. Motte is pretty likely.

The win gave BC a 9-7-1 record on the season, and they're now ranked 25th in the computer polls. They're a thoroughly average team.
Michigan's goal, and all the other BC goals are available here in GIF form: http://www.bcinterruption.com/boston-college-hockey-2014-2015-season/2014/12/13/7388817/goal-by-goal-boston-college-eagles-hockey-comes-alive-in-win-over-michigan-wolverines
I don't know what the issue is, but the third and fourth goals are pucks that Nagelvoort really needs to stop. He's been below average this year.

Good for him, but this makes the assumption that the fifth-year transfer rule will be around three years from now, and I'm not 100% sure that will be the case.
