This new blog format is not an improvement over that last iteration.

Anybody know why BTN2GO doesn’t have the replay available? I’m guessing they did not get right for rebroadcast when they renegotiated with NBC/Comcast.

Why did Michigan send Mississippi the documents? All that did was give them more time to craft a response to the reams of documents we sent the NCAA. Should’ve followed normal procedures so they’d only have 10 days to dream up a response rather than a month.

Doc Emrick is the best play by play hands down

04/05/2018 - 5:55pm Single elimination is crazy

Where else do you see single elimination hockey? It would be cool to have at least double elimination.
Go Blue!

03/11/2018 - 8:04am Tough loss

Maybe we can get redemption in the NCAA tournament

03/04/2018 - 6:50pm Home ice

So much better than the neutral site B1G Tournament. Now if we could get BTN to show hockey instead of woman’s basketball I’d be ecstatic.

02/28/2018 - 10:03pm Tournament

I’m totally psyched that the Big Ten Hockey Tournament will start with home ice. Too bad it ended up being the week of Spring Break! It looks like there’s still a bunch of tickets available, but I’m sure it’ll outsell the last tournament at the Joe. Go Blue!

02/27/2018 - 2:54pm Money

Wouldn’t more money be made for the Big Ten by having round 3 broadcast on ESPN like last year? Or did the Big Ten already get their paycheck for basketball up front, and if so why wouldn’t ESPN or FS1 want the content?

02/27/2018 - 11:01am BTN

Can someone tell me why the first 3 rounds of the Big Ten Tournament are only on BTN? Are ratings that bad that ESPN and FS1 would rather show crappy talk shows? Or is BTN trying to boost advertising or prove people in NYC actually know they have BTN?

02/26/2018 - 10:29pm BTN

How is it that ESPN or FS1 didn’t pick up the third round of the BIg Ten Tournament? Was it a ratings issue or is BTN trying to squeeze out more advertising $

02/24/2018 - 7:51am Phew

Can’t afford to lose to ASU this year.

02/19/2018 - 10:28am Agreed

That is a great photo!

02/19/2018 - 10:25am Sing

Red would only let them sing Hail to the Victors after a sweep. I wonder if Mel kept that tradition?

02/03/2018 - 8:26am It’s so subjective

Is Hockey East really down and is NCHC really that good? It’s so hard to tell. Keep praying for Michigan to get on a roll and blow away all expectations!

01/21/2018 - 10:19pm Home Ice

Would be great to get home ice for first round of the B1G Tournament

01/20/2018 - 8:54am Goalie

Lavigne stood on his head man. That was my hot take!

01/16/2018 - 7:10pm Goofs

I guess the Goofs are no longer the big boys on the block! Hopefully we can knock ND down a few pegs too

01/16/2018 - 7:08pm Last year

We wore those last year too

01/08/2018 - 8:25pm NBCSN v BTN

I kinda liked the NBCSN broadcast on Sunday a little better that BTN on Friday. The play by play was pretty good for both but BTN really needs to upgrade the intermission report studio and staff.

I’m glad Michigan was competitive with the #1 team in the country but it sucks not to get any points.

01/05/2018 - 11:56pm Goalie

Strong outing for the Wolverine, hard to win against that Irish goalie. Nice to see Red on the ice dropping the ceremonial first puck on Red Berenson Ice Rink at Yost Ice Arens!

01/05/2018 - 8:07pm I prefer dough joe

I guess you could invite an out of state team to make it 8. How about going for broke and doing a separate tourney with the division 3 Michigan hockey teams too? Like Hoosiers!

01/04/2018 - 11:15pm GLI

GLI is an awesome tourney. Too bad we came out sluggish in the first game. It’s also too bad the whole thing was pushed back so late in the holiday schedule. College hockey is playing third fiddle now at LCA. I would love to expand the GLI to include more Michigan college hockey teams over a few days. We have 7 teams in the state that should be playing each other. This should be a bigger deal. Get some marketing blitz going and make it better than the Bean Pot. At the very least, don’t invite teams from other states!

01/03/2018 - 10:27pm Thank God

We needed some good news!

01/03/2018 - 10:25pm Football

We ain’t come to play school

01/01/2018 - 10:37pm Crap

Son of bitch, shit

01/01/2018 - 8:45pm Hamilton

Pep needs to go!

01/01/2018 - 8:40pm Jedd Fisch

The one thing we can all agree on is that the QB play has been awful this year. The biggest change was losing Jedd Fisch and adding Pep Hamilton. Heck, even Speight looked terrible this year in comparison to last year. Pep wasn’t a world beater at Cleveland either. Does anyone know if Chip Kelly is keeping Jedd on staff? If not Jimmy better grab him. I always respected Harbaugh’s ability to judge talent and make tough decisions, I hope he hasn’t gotten soft.

01/01/2018 - 8:17pm Playmakers

DPJ seems slow and not as athletic as we thought. It would be nice to have some playmakers. Perhaps next year Black will be the man. At any rate we should have depth at every position to deal with inevitable injuries.

12/13/2017 - 2:22pm Jordan

XXXI shoes are very slippery

12/08/2017 - 10:34pm Frustrating

Pearson has work to do.

12/03/2017 - 8:04pm CFP

Screw the CFP comittee. Bunch of SEC slappies.

11/11/2017 - 6:35am Getting rolling

Got to catch this one on BTN2GO. Sounds like a classic.

11/04/2017 - 5:58am Michigan teams

What a difference a day makes. They looked like world beaters on BTN Thursday. I loved seeing them interview Red and Turco. I got the feeling we were back but I guess there’s still some work to do. At least it was overtime. I love seeing us playing in-state schools. I’d much rather see that than Vermont. I know the open weekends are limited especially now the ND is in B1G. I wish they would expand the GLI to include all 7 Michigan hockey programs, it could work in a single elimination format. You could even “invite” an 8th school. Finding a free extended weekend at LCA might be difficult though now that the Pistons and Red Wings schedules would be involved.

10/30/2017 - 1:21pm Goalie

I don’t know how you can say the Penn St goalie kinda sucks when he beat us on Friday.

10/29/2017 - 8:54am FG

Field goal was the right call to go up by 3 scores. How’d he miss that gimme?

10/10/2017 - 11:11pm Photo

Gotta love that picture of Red and Mel's dad as teenage hockey players!

06/28/2017 - 5:54am Picture

Is that a real picture of an Iowa arena? It looks pretty awesome if so!

06/27/2017 - 6:22pm Title IX

That makes no sense given that Michigan has a men's hockey program and no woman's hockey. They also have a huge football program. There's no way we spend the same on women's sports except for scholarships.

06/15/2017 - 7:33pm Proven wrong

Warde has really "stepped up to the plate". I was not a fan initially especially when Red was ready to retire but was convinced to stay another year. He did eventually get the right guy, securing Mel was a strong move. Keeping Bakich is huge. I'm still not sure about letting John Paul go but time will tell there.

05/27/2017 - 12:52pm Rock on Mel

Forget 2 years, I'm excited about this year!

05/25/2017 - 6:02pm Mitten State Championship

Adding ND definitely improves the schedule. I wish there was a way to expand the GLI to include all Michigan schools in a Wolverine State championship at the new Dough Joe!

05/22/2017 - 5:39pm Repetitive

Would this blog stop with the paying players BS every time I turn around.

05/06/2017 - 6:51am Dreaded double post

I'm sure they'd have to get the other big programs on board due to costs but it would help Michigan be great again if they could hire a bigger staff. How about a another sheet of ice in the athletic complex somewhere for practice? Why hasn't that happened?

05/06/2017 - 6:47am Change

We'll change the rules, they have influence too

05/05/2017 - 6:44pm Steve Shields

Can't we get this guy a paying gig? WTH we should have 6 or 8 paid assistants. The athletic department is flush with $$

04/24/2017 - 6:10pm Awesome

Mel is the right guy at the right time. I hope Warde opens up the checkbook and hires some great assistants too. How about a second sheet of ice on campus?

04/24/2017 - 6:06pm Mel!

This is going to be epic!

04/23/2017 - 10:58pm Warde

I was expecting Warde to whiff on this one too. I have underestimated him thus far,

04/16/2017 - 12:10am Dude

I like your avatar. Brandon Peters may be the real deal eh?

04/03/2017 - 8:00pm Warde

Warde Manuel appears to be a do nothing kind of AD. With the exception of raising season ticket prices, what else has he done? Benign neglect works some of the time but hockey needs attention and direction. Hire a new coach or give Red quality assistants and a second sheet of ice. Oosterbaan Field House should have been designated for hockey and not yet another football training facility ferGodsakes!
