05/14/2018 - 9:56pm The Eagles Nest

If you have a day to drive somewhere, I would suggest The Eagles Nest.  It is a two hour drive from Munich and offers spectacular views of the Alps.  There is also a museum there (Eagles Nest was Hitler's southern headquarters) which is informative but not as overwhelming as visiting a concentration camp.  Salzburg is also close and is an excellent city to visit for a day.

As mentioned earlier, Neuschwanstein is also spectacular and is 2 hours in the other direction.

Hey, us accountants can be athletes too.  But definitely not prosecutors.

01/01/2018 - 4:14pm Play Calling

The play calling at the end of the game was atrocious.  The use of J'marick Woods for Metullus at various times was also questionable.  Two big plays were at least partially on him.  Otherwise, can you really blame the coaches for five turnovers and two of those inside the five?  Adjustments certainly need to be made, but I don't think a whole sale change is necessary.

Harbaugh's offense requires solid QB play.  Without it, the offense does not work.  If we cannot find a QB next year, it doesn't matter what coaching changes are made.

I am hoping Roos can make a contribution this year.  He had a great freshman year at CC playing mostly on the first line.  He then disappeared for his final years.  Hopefully Roos' talent just got lost in the tire fire that has been CC hockey since Scott Owens left.

I was a season ticket holder at CC when I live in Colorado.  My last year out there was Alex's freshman year.  He had a ton of potential splitting time between CC's first and second lines.  He socred some pretty impressive goals including an OT winner in the conference tourney against UND and a late game winner against rival DU.  CC switched coaches between his freshman and sophomore years so maybe that played a role in his reduced stats/playing time.  Hopefully some of that potential is still in there and can be drawn out by Mel.

09/30/2014 - 10:44am There is one way for Michigan

There is one way for Michigan to look good in this situation.  The President should make a statement that student safety is the university's number 1 prioritiy and due to putting a student at risk, Hoke is fired.  Due to Brandon not taking care of this matter within his own department, he is fired.  Michigan takes a hard stance on student safety and looks good.  Also, Hoke and Brandon are gone and the fan/donor base is satisfied.  Seems like a win win to me.

09/29/2014 - 10:44am Nussmeier Saw It

1.  After Morris almost collapsed, Nussmeier was 10 yards on the field yelling at Morris to go down.  Morris didn't because he obviously wants to keep playing, not his fault at all.  Nussmeier then left Morris in the game.  Did anyone see what Nussmeier did next?  Did he go and tell Hoke to get Morris out or call a timeout so he could be evaluated?  If Nussmeier did nothing after obviously seeing the whole thing, he is just as liable as Hoke and should also be fired.  

2.  If Hoke didn't see it as he says he didn't, someone on the sidelines should have told him to get Morris out or call a timeout.  If no one did this or if someone did and Hoke did nothing, it shows the dictatorship that Hoke is running.  What he says goes, period.  No matter what else someone tells him.  That is not a remotely healthy way to run a program.

3.  There is one way Hoke should not be fired and that is if in the next press conference he says he made a mistake and apologizes for it.  Anything else, and he should be fired.

4.  Brandon should already be fired due to the athletic departments offical press release which was a straight up lie.

03/22/2012 - 2:59pm Saw DU a few times this year

As a Colorado College season ticket holder, I watched DU in person twice this year, and also viewed them numerous times on TV throughout the year.  Here are a few things I noticed.

  1. Dirty – DU is a very dirty team.  They frequently hit after the whistle and throw cheap shots throughout the game.  Against CC especially, they made a concerted effort to hit the goalie during play or after the whistle any time they were close to him.  The dirty play was amplified against CC as they are rivals, but even against Minnesota, they were very dirty.
  2. Goalie platoon – Brittain has been excellent in the two games I have seen him play.  Olkinuora has been streaky.  I have seen him play really well in one game and then give up a couple real easy goals in the next.  The past couple weeks the two goalies have been switching every other game.   If the pattern continues, Brittain is Ferris, and Olkinuora is Michigan.
  3. Offense – the majority of the offense develops around the Shore brothers and Zucker (all graduates of Pioneer, fyi).  All three are very quick with great vision and puck handling abilities.  As a team, they crash the net hard after shots and (as mentioned earlier) are not afraid to take out the goalie in the process.
03/20/2012 - 4:20pm Saw Cornell twice this year

I am a Michigan transplant in Colorado Springs and a Colorado College season ticket holder.  I saw Cornell play CC twice this year.  Here is what I noticed.

1. Size.  Cornell was noticeably bigger than CC. Not just height, but wide bodies.  They were not very fast but were excellent at using their strength to knock CC off the puck.

2. Fitness.  Granted, the games were in the altitude, but CC skated circles around Cornell the third period of both games.  The fast play (and altitude) wore down Cornell, and allowing CC to dominate late in the games.  (This was in January, so their fitness could have changed by this point in the season)

3. Goalie.  Iles played out of his mind.  CC looked like the better team in both games, but Iles was spectacular, especially late in the games when Cornell was sucking wind.  He is the major reason they got any points that weekend.
