The day when whoever got the number came running up into the section before the game is etched in my mind.
"GUYS. I HAVE THE PHONE NUMBER FOR THE PENALTY BOX."
It was as serious a thing as I've ever seen in my 5 seasons there. We deliberated for like two months on when to best deploy it, knowing we'd likely only have one chance at it.
We decided the moment was when one of the Chelios kids were in the box one night vs State.
"Hey, it's us."
*we wave as he looks over, incredulous*
"Tell Chelios he sucks!" *click*
|04/18/2017 - 7:31pm||Yeah, but if U of M were to||
Yeah, but if U of M were to submit Ann Arbor as a prospective site, the NCAA would angrily burn Yost down in lieu of a rejection letter.
They love two things: empty arenas and giving North Dakota home games they don't deserve.
|02/17/2017 - 11:18pm||All of their goals tonight,||
All of their goals tonight, as usual, are "Wisconsin guy in our goal mouth with nobody in blue paying attention."
It's time, Red.
|02/11/2017 - 10:47pm||A March that was as good as||
A March that was as good as November was bad!
|02/11/2017 - 10:46pm||Some things that I've seen||
Some things that I've seen all season long is their inability to get the puck out of their own zone for minutes straight and a tendency to make the most boneheaded turnovers.
But worse, they leave men unchecked in the slot at an alarming rate. MSU had what, three last night at the Joe that were "guy just out there in front of Lavigne with nobody around him"
It puts a lot of pressure on a young offense to score when they're guaranteed to give up four a night because the fundamentals of defense are missing.
And we wonder why our best defensemen always go one and done. Almost feels like NHL teams are telling them to get out while they can still develop young.
|02/11/2017 - 10:37pm||We're a pretty spoiled||
We're a pretty spoiled fanbase historically when a double OT loss in the regional final is a mediocre team.
|02/11/2017 - 10:20pm||The atmosphere at Yost is||
The atmosphere at Yost is fine when the team is good.
This team is not good.
|11/04/2016 - 1:58am||Dang it, sell me a Children||
Dang it, sell me a Children of Yost shirt already!
|08/09/2016 - 10:39pm||Detroit and Windsor||
Detroit and Windsor legitimately considered submitting a joint bid but the logistics of repeatedly getting people across the borders at that volume ended up being too much of a mess.
|08/01/2016 - 3:10am||There is something darkly||
There is something darkly humorous about a 2 month countdown timer to the website immediately bursting into flames and not working indefinitely.
Also, super obnoxious because you would assume they would have found some premium nerds on campus to ensure this exact thing did not happen.
|07/09/2016 - 5:01pm||The article has some||
The article has some problems, dude
|04/21/2016 - 10:11pm||Mrazek's biggest error was||
Mrazek's biggest error was not flubbing that pass around the boards, but assuming Ericsson or Kronwall would be of any help to him back there
|04/21/2016 - 9:56pm||Fire Ken Holland immediately||
Fire Ken Holland immediately and save this fucking team from itself
|04/20/2016 - 1:06am||How to fix the Wings||
1. Build a Raft
2. Put Kronwall, Ericsson, Abdelkader, Richards, Quincey, and Holland on the Raft
3. Push Raft out to Sea
4. Send Dump Truck of Money to Yzerman's House
|04/07/2016 - 10:01pm||I really hate the team Ken||
I really hate the team Ken Holland has assembled.
|04/06/2016 - 2:17am||Oddly enough, the only thing||
Oddly enough, the only thing I'm not 100% on is the blue end zones. We should absolutely build the stadium up like that.
Nice work, man.
|04/03/2016 - 4:44pm||Alright, let's go have a||
Alright, let's go have a better year than this year and send the man off properly in 2017.
Also: don't buy hockey jerseys with your own name on the back.
|02/28/2016 - 8:50pm||My Charter cable has 5 BTN||
My Charter cable has 5 BTN "overflow" channels for when there are too many football games happening at once. This is only used for football. It's a simulcast of BTN prime the rest of the year. You're telling me the stuff they want me to pay extra for on BTN+ couldn't be run on those overflow channels?
Fuck the Big Ten. Fuck Jim Delany.
|02/26/2016 - 11:40pm||Not tied. OT only gets you a||
Not tied. OT only gets you a standings point if you get to the end of it. We're 1 point behind Minnesota again.
|02/26/2016 - 11:38pm||Racine had an off night but||
Racine had an off night but only gave up 3. Our average is damn near 5.
Put more pucks behind their freshman goalie. They play in a cavern, stop taking shots from the blue line and tops of the circles.
Most importantly, stop turning the puck over in your own end.
|02/26/2016 - 11:34pm||He does recruit them. They||
He does recruit them. They just keep fucking off to the OHL 2 weeks before camp.
|02/26/2016 - 11:32pm||We didn't deserve to win that||
We didn't deserve to win that one. More 3rd period turnovers than shots on goal for us. That said, we are supposed to crush bad teams, and we continue to drop points to them.
This is a conference we should be leading by 10 to 12 points, not down 2.
|02/20/2016 - 4:13pm||I am going to be super bummed||
I am going to be super bummed when Connor correctly goes pro in three months and is then never heard of again with the Jets.
I guess at least it's not Edmonton, graveyard of good young players.
|02/16/2016 - 12:17am||Sharp did end up writing||
Sharp did end up writing (allegedly) an article about it tonight.
The summary is as follows:
"Shut up, Drew Sharp."
|02/13/2016 - 2:09am||Fire every referee in the||
Fire every referee in the conference in all sports and then fire Jim Delany
|01/29/2016 - 8:31pm||One of the major things||
One of the major things you're mentioning is how the Band has been used deliberately to mask the C-Ya chant.
This involved literally moving them closer to the students to drown them out better on TV.
|01/29/2016 - 5:55pm||I'd like him to listen to the||
I'd like him to listen to the Hockey Student Section (Children of Yost) and work to restore some of what was Brandon'd away from them.
Move the visiting parents back across the ice so they aren't trying to come into the student section all heated every game.
Don't give a third of the section to three American Red Cross workers.
Don't sell a home game against Michigan State to Coyote Logistics to play in the slush.
|01/22/2016 - 12:01am||At least one of them had B1G||
At least one of them had B1G logos on his ref uniform. Not sure if that means anything, but I look at a referee doing a shit job and I immediately just assume the Big Ten pays his salary.
|01/21/2016 - 9:49pm||Even in an exhibition game||
Even in an exhibition game the worthless clowns that masquerade as referees in this conference made it about themselves.
Fire Jim Delany and every referee in the conference.
|01/19/2016 - 5:25pm||Fuckboy University loses||
Fuckboy University loses Joshua and Kearney for 1 game and no further suspensions.
This conference is a joke. At least Kile didn't get a game for leaving the bench to do the refs' jobs for them.
|01/17/2016 - 9:52pm||Nobody is arguing with you||
Nobody is arguing with you about that. He's going to get suspended and will have deserved it.
|01/17/2016 - 9:30pm||Yeah. Fight's not a fight||
Yeah. Fight's not a fight until neither one of you are punching a guy in a full cage anymore. Also I think they were technically all roughing penalties!
|01/17/2016 - 9:23pm||He got his match penalty and||
He got his match penalty and will get his suspension. Lighten up, Francis.
|01/17/2016 - 9:12pm||This game started getting||
This game started getting chippy immediately after we tied it to start the 3rd. Maybe if the worthless officials in this conference would do their jobs correctly, we wouldn't take matters into our own hands.
|01/15/2016 - 9:36pm||The officiating in this||
The officiating in this conference is a fucking joke, and it's not one I find funny anymore. How did the Big Ten get all of the useless refs and linesmen from the CCHA split?
How does a man 2 feet from the play botch an icing wave-off like that? Just sad. The state of officiating in the Big Ten is sad.
|12/14/2015 - 9:08pm||I am not surprised by this,||
I am not surprised by this, because the Big Ten Hockey Conference is worthless in every way.
|12/12/2015 - 10:53pm||Extremely lucky sieve tonight||
Extremely lucky sieve tonight for Minnesota.
Extremely rotten officiating once again for the Big Ten.
EDIT: WE WANT SHEGOS
|12/12/2015 - 10:22pm||Twice in a weekend we score||
Twice in a weekend we score and give up a goal before the goal count. That's no way to live.
|12/12/2015 - 9:52pm||Crosscheck to Compher right||
Crosscheck to Compher right in front of a ref doesn't get called.
Fire every referee in the conference in all sports.
|12/12/2015 - 9:47pm||That is a trash DQ from trash||
That is a trash DQ from trash officials.
|12/12/2015 - 9:32pm||This guy had no luck last||
This guy had no luck last night and is the luckiest sieve in the universe tonight.
|12/12/2015 - 9:20pm||They've been bad for a while||
They've been bad for a while but this season they only seem to be able to find the extra two minutes when it's a maize guy. Especially when it's a team we're outclassing and they're getting chippy about it. The OT game against Wisconsin was a heap of trash.
|12/12/2015 - 9:06pm||I continue to be completely||
I continue to be completely unimpressed with the officiating in this conference. What, did the NCHC get all the good ones in the divorce?
|09/30/2015 - 2:20am||Tell me you ain't hype for an||
Tell me you ain't hype for an engineering program taught by Smokey Yunick.
I defy you to not be into that.
|09/28/2015 - 1:27pm||#1 in the Big Ten is still||
#1 in the Big Ten is still basically king of the cripple fight, so I am reserving my enthusiasm for now.
|09/19/2015 - 10:18pm||Yeah you might develop a real||
Yeah you might develop a real case of the vapors if you come to Yost.
We're....not kind there.
|08/19/2015 - 10:49pm||I hope they put the jumpman||
I hope they put the jumpman logo on all the hockey stuff too, just because it would be amusing.
|07/09/2015 - 1:15am||Correct me if I'm wrong, but||
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the hockey helmets winged with yellow electrical tape? I don't think Easton/CCM/Reebok do anything other than send us their navy-bluest helmets.
|06/28/2015 - 1:57pm||I've got a Hagelin and a Hunwick||
I had my Hagelin and Hunwick jerseys done by the guys at http://www.vintagemnhockey.com/
You tell them what team and year you want, and if you can send them some reference photos, they will match it exactly. Price is reasonable as well. They also did both while the guys were on the team, so they care none for the NCAA regulations.
Minnesota nice, eh?
|06/05/2015 - 11:36am||Yeah, I agree with you there.||
Yeah, I agree with you there. Mostly I'm just glad we're rid of him.
