There is a bright side. Maybe.

After the past few years, karma owes us big time. In many sports.

I'm going to go keep crying now.

The bright side doesn't need karma. We have a great hockey program, arguably, historically the best in college. Our basketball program is back on the upswing, not only in wins but in respectability. Softball and LaCrosse are great teams. Football - a question mark now, but it's a pretty good bet that our defense will be back in the next year or two, putting us in a much better position in the B10. From my standpoint, we don't need karma.

Karma owed us a shitload this year after the Miami bullshit. So yeah, I don't think Karma really gives a flying fuck about Michigan hockey.

This was a game in which we got screwed by the refs, but did not deserve to win. So we get the pain and anger of being screwed by a incompetent ass of a ref, but cannot even credibly claim that we earned a victory (because face it, we were outplayed and outskated as the game went on, there's no telling what happens if the goal was counted).

One day, we will win a title. To this point, I hadn't seen the pain of losing in a title game (probably very few of us have) but seeing it so close means im just going to riot that much harder when we do win. Here's to winning it in 2012

As a Michigan fan from Buffalo, I've arrived in Ann Arbor at the time most similar to my own home city's issues. I can't agree more with bluetell's outlook on things. Today sucked. Tomorrow in Michigan sport's might not go the way I want either. It WILL happen though, and that day will be fucking amazing. I've probably got another 60 years of my life to be a fan, and since I'm not rooting for the Cubs, I'm not that worried about the short term or the long term. One of my teams has to trip and fall into a championship at some point. I hope.

This nickname actually came about before my association with Michigan, and just happened to fit into the university quite well. I was born on the 13th of February, and M happens to be both the first letter of my name and the 13th letter of the alphabet. Since most people consider 13 unlucky, I went with the lucky number "M" instead.

While I appreciate the flawed logic, this isn't about karma etc. It's about team play and UM looked flat and uninspired of what I watched. And if karma is due, where is it for the Chicago Cubs?

I was at the game last night and found it interesting that many North Dakota fans were complaining about the refs also.  They felt that Michigan was getting clearly screwed left and right.  Most of those powerplays never should have been.

The Duluth fans weren't too bad, even after the game on 7th.  Seemed like a good bunch.
