I was reading a leadership article and there was a good shout out to Red Berenson. Here is the quote (in the context of leadership)
I remember a conversation I had with the legendary University of Michigan hockey coach, Red Berenson. He said that if he raised his voice with a freshman, he might cost the kid his confidence. On the other hand, if he didn't raise Cain occasionally with a senior, that player might lose his concentration. It's a matter of picking your spots and acting appropriately.
According to an article on MLive Red Berenson wants answers.
He freely admits in the article that it's mostly just sour grapes, but he says because he never received a good explanation, he thinks the rule does need to be qualified going forward. He is, evidently, going to work with the athletic department to get an explanation out of the NCAA.
My explanation? The ref was/is either a moron or a jackhole. He either made an insanely stupid mistake, or intentionally made the wrong call. We'll have to see how the NCAA goes with that one, because there can be no doubt that ONE of those is true.
Cool video is up on mgoblue showing the hockey team practicing in Camp Randall.
Right now its the first video in the list... http://www.mgoblue.com/mzone/

Just wanted to wish Red a happy 70th birthday and share this article with the MGoBoarders:
One note which I think would be awesome:
Don't be surprised if the Michigan student section, seated by the Wolverines' bench, gives a high-spirited version of "Happy Birthday" to Red Berenson prior to the Michigan-Notre Dame game Friday night at Yost.
If this can be made to happen, I think it must. Signs and well wishes for Red on Friday, and hopefully a win!
