Michigan Hockey NCAA Tourney vs. Miami Open Thread

Almost that time. Basketball is all but over, now time for the important sport (you know, the one we're good at!). It was a lot of fun last night...hopefully even more so tonight. Go Blue, beat the Redhawks!!

We won this game. Period.

ESPN got their BB fuzzy story.

I hope Boston College beats them down so hard their heads fall off. They had this handed to them on a silver platter.

Does anybody know who the ref was who screwed up that goal? I want to know who it was and what conference he's from at least.

I want a replay. I think there was a whistle...

Tough way to lose, but considering they were left for dead just two weeks ago every game after the CCHA tourney was gravy. I wish it had gone the other way (and wish that ref swallows his whistle, literally) but it was a great effort.

Great game and great job redeeming the season. Too bad they got hosed with the quick whistle, but it's not the first time that has happened. Anyone else have a flashback to the gold medal game on that goal? Carbon copy.

At least the hardest working team...no wait,
at least the deserving team....no wait,
at least there were no blown call....no wait,
well I guess the lesson learned is that hard work doesn't pay off in college hockey.

repost of something i posted back on Dec. 4th. One day when we're on top, I'm going to remember all this bullshit we've been through, raise my middle fingers up to the sky and laugh at you.

"I feel like Lieutenant Dan sitting on top of the bubba gump shrimp boat in the middle of the hurricane.

Bring it, Michigan-Everything-Hating GOD. Is that all you got? BRING IT.

Pretty soon we'll be snapping up all the shrimp in the sea, fucker."

Tomorrow's headline:
Two officials have gone missing. In other news, two corpses were found in the Michigan locker room. Red Berenson had no comment.

The worst part is, Red will never stand up and say we got screwed by the referees. We need coaches that are willing to do that. Never saying that he's a bad coach, but I wish he would.

Red doesn't need to say that we got screwed. That isn't going to change the outcome. I'm sure he tells his players in the lockerroom but we aren't going to whine about it.

And whats with the benches/ not changing ends. We played the first/third/and both OTs with the long change. That is sooo difficult for those that haven't played the game. Just in expending more energy throughout the game...

All that said,

THANK YOU MICHIGAN HOCKEY. Thank You for lifting the spirits of the michigan sports fan after a disappointing year. Thank you Shawn Hunwick for doing what you did!

I think the best thing we can do at this point is ignore the Frozen Four being right in our back yard. Fuck the NCAA and let them suffer poor attendance in a hockey-rich town close to several of the finalists and near a major hockey school. I bought my tickets last year and now I'm leaning towards selling them since I don't want to be anywhere near a place where people are rooting for Miami. Boycott them and tell everyone else to as well.

According to NCAA.com's website, the officials for the game were:
Referee: John Gravelese
Linesman: Chris Aughe
Goal Judge: Bob Bernard

I don't know who made that call, but fuck him.
