Hockey Is A Go

Game on:

"After a discussion with our engineers late this afternoon, we are extremely confident that we are going to play in front of a sellout crowd at Yost Ice Arena on Saturday night," said associate athletic director Bruce Madej. "Safety was our first and foremost thought when we postponed tonight's game; it had to done."

Death to Miami, etc.

In Chicago last night we braved the snow to head out to the bar. The place we went to is a Boston College bar and they love to show the hockey games. Last night was BC at Vermont and the bar was full....of Vermont fans. It was pretty awesome, I didn't know that people from Vermont left Vermont. Vermont scored with 2 seconds left to tie it and an otherwise quiet bar went nuts. Got me pumped up for the series this weekend.

Go Blue!

Stevie - do you (or does anyone) know of a bar in Chicago that will show tonight's Comcast Net game?

I get the FSN Broadcasts on the FCS channel tier, but it doesn't appear anyone can really get the game here unless they have the NHL Network Canada feed or can somehow get the Comcast Detroit feed...

Any suggestions?

Hooray for Hockey Content! Go Blue!

Anyone have any idea if they'll televise the game tomorrow on FSN/FSN+ since the one they were supposed to broadcast on Friday got cancelled? I was pissed, as I would have been able to watch that one. Broadcasts on the Comcast Local in Michigan do me zero good living in Chicago.

3-0 before 5 minutes had ticked off the clock. Passing by both teams was less than stellar. Seemed like the second and third periods had a penalty every 12 seconds.

Hogan was very good in net.

I know you probably won't read this until tomorrow, but this weekend is the AFCA Coaches' Convention and RR is supposedly doing some interviews. Could you do a write up on the possible candidates (since the last time it was addressed). That is have you heard anything new?

I love all the work you do with the recruiting write-ups, but I am worried that without a solid, proven, big-time d-coordinator that we are going to fight an uphill battle against teams who are able to tell recruits, "Hey we've got Will Muschamp, or NFL guru, Monte Kiffin." Now I'm not saying I want an NFL guy, but a proven guy would make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Maybe I'm paranoid, but I'm worried Jay Hopson might not be the strongest choice - I also have no credibility when I say this as I don't really know anything about Coach Hopson.

Thanks,

JB
