Banner Muppets

Submitted by Brian on February 26th, 2011 at 9:57 PM

Michigan played 30 minutes of wobbly neutral zone hockey and then blew the doors off Northern about 20 seconds after their radio guy started in with conspiracy theories, complaints about "whining" and Scooter-taunting. #karma #DoNotTauntHappyFunScooter

Meanwhile, Notre Dame was shut out 2-0 by WMU. Result: CCHA regular season title. Result: Muppets.

And you can't have one without the other…

A bonus: the CCHA playoffs fell in such a way that Ferris and OSU don't play each other. OSU gets LSSU in the first round and then would play Michigan if they win. Also Rick Comley's career will end in the icy wilderness of Alaska. #karma

Michigan was briefly tied with Merrimack for the last one-seed but other results will throw the PWR into a state of higgeldy-piggleldy. Algorithms update tonight.

That was me who called in. I hate that guy, but his response to me made him look like an ass and I could tell it got to him because he kept it under control and sounded hurt like a neglected dog every time we scored.

I mean, I paid $7 to hear that. I didn't tell the guy (who answered my call) that he was being too biased, I told him it was bordering on mean. He took pride in that. The guy who answered was sympathetic though, and said he would get it settled.

edit: my favorite part was how we scored a flurry of goals immediately after. I hope the karma was partly from me, but probably just from that dick of a commentator.

was saying that the officiating is always biased towards Michigan and that (paraphrase) little schools like NMU always get shafted playing U-M. It's a tired bit, I hear it all the time-must have gotten their grapes from UNO fans, too. They are just bitter about U-M success. Keep in mind they are 0 for JLA against Michigan also. Hard to justify the officiating bias in this series... game one, NMU had more PP's- for a team with the most PIM's in the CCHA. Game two had two waived off goals on Michigan. Yep, bias. 

The kicker was when NMU bush announcer guy started up on Scooter, making fun of his nickname. Then Scooter sent Rust in on his breakaway and scored. The timing was beautiful. The Michigan Daily writers were sitting next to these clowns in the press box and were commenting about it on their live blog.

It was a close first period where Michigan got out-physicaled by NMU and only a PP-goal  towards the end of the period was the "negative" for NMU.

Obviously soon after Michigan blew the doors off but they were really pretty punky after they had a 3-goal lead.

Haglin played amazing per usual, and Hunwick played decent.  NMU only had 2 shots in the 2nd period...that was when the wheels fell off.

Oh please give us OSU for the CCHA quarterfinals.  Last year we put an end to Sparty's season.  Would be sweet to do the same to the Buckeyes this season.

3 weeks ago I was nervous when Red jumbled up the lines after we got swept by Miami.  It's the type of adjustment you just don't want to see in February, but it seems to have worked.  Red is just incredible.

Hanging a blue banner, let's hang a white and maize one as well!

Just so everyone knows, we could have the opportunity to knock out either ohio state or sparty in the second round.  We get the lowest remaining seed @ Yost in 2 weeks!

We could get BSGU, one of their 3 conference wins this season is against "The Northerns"

Either way, lets go get a couple more banners for the old barn!!!  GO BLUE!

When I first found out the scores last night, my first thought wasn't about titles or banners.  I was thinking that Brian should put up Muppets in celebration.  It is indeed be...a Michigan Wolverine!!!
