And just how much of the arena is season ticket holders?

It was a general point. I'd guess that out of 5500 people (the average now), at least 2500 are season ticket holders, plus what ever students decide to come. Either way, the place may be half empty and they will report 5000 people there. Either way, it doesn't matter. But don't try to sell me on the notion that volleyball or soccer is going to take away from the hockey crowd. The parking situation is a big deterrence to a walk up crowd- and homecoming makes for a long day for those who typically attend. It was poor planning on the administration's part.

As much as I enjoy more tailgating after a football game, I enjoy hockey more. Easy choice for me. Even if I am freaking out about lack of free time, and if I'll need to leave football early or if I should show up at hockey late.

Extra difficult to coordinate with the husband since he'll be in the stands at football and I'll be on the field for homecoming. I may have us both bring a car key and hold on to our own hockey ticket so we can meet up at the hockey game.

Speaking of calming down.... take a chill pill. It is what it is, and no matter how mad you post, nothing is going to change. Just deal with it.

I'm not mad one iota. It is what it is. I'm telling them what to expect.

Competent scheduling in terms of timeslotting with the big 3 sports has been passe for a couple years now. I just won't be at Yost because Football takes priority #1.

Just wait until later this season. The best is yet to come with *** scheduling if you look at both basketball and hockey schedules.

Casual fans would flock to Yost if the team was expected to be NC caliber. It's not, so there is that. Second of all, M students have to choose between sports based on the schedule conflicts. Hockey fans will be there regardless.

Enjoy the warmth & hospitality of the fans at Yost. They're so welcoming to visiting guests.

They are much more pleasant now. Atmosphere does not pick up til the end of football season. Will be neat to have the 96 team in attendance with the return of Morrison, Turco, Botterill, Legg, Luhning, etc. Warren Luhning was a one of a kind personality on campus in the mid-90's.

I go to a number of games at Yost. Usually I'm treated quite well and fans are complimentary. Whereas at the Kohl, well it's like OSU football. You risk your life.

Been to Kohl Center too and feel the same way about their fans. No need for that.

Maybe my Kohl center trips have just been at times when students weren't there (Thanksgiving, Spring break), I haven't had a problem. There was the outdoor game at Camp Randall, the behavior for that was...well...similar to OSU fans.


Hockey tonight! Will Sam Piazza continue scoring? Will Michigan's eleventy billion freshman contribute? Will Mel remember to go to the visitor locker room and bench, or will he decide he belongs on the home bench at Yost?

Have they been since the big ten started? When you only have half a section of fans chanting ******* at you it's not quite the same a 3 full tiers when they had people actually at the games. :D

We'll be there.

We will be missing Friday's game. So very many conflicts.

You'll miss seeing the Little Gopher Fans. They're only coming with us to the Friday game.

We'll be tailgating Saturday with Midget, Biddy, Yager, and anyone else that shows up.

Where will you be tailgating? My schedule is pretty tight Saturday with band homecoming activities, but maybe I'll have a chance to stop by.

I'll miss tailgating with you, but will be cheering via Dirk's broadcast.

GO TECH!

From the other end of the rink I heard the Tech fans spell out technological. Good size group.

Tech thoroughly outplayed Michigan for the better part of the 2nd. Go get'm in the 3rd and score a couple to win it.

Why can't we score more? I really thought the offense would be better than this. Also, goaltending is killing us, 2 goals on 14 shots isn't going to get it done usually.

Well my thoughts.
Tech really played well and was the better team most of the game ... except for two or three lapses. We just seemed to lose focus for whatever reason and didn't really have a goal in mind with what to do with the puck, got lackadaisical, whatever you want to call it and that resulted in the first michigan goal. We were out of position and running around. that same attitude bit us on the pp at the end of the game. We just were kind of standing around wondering what to do next.

Also michigan's goalie was by far the best player on the ice. He made some saves in the first that the guy in the press box didn't count because he didn't apparently see them, which were really good and headed in.
I thought Tech was tentative in the first, maybe intimidated by the arena and the setting, whatever, after a while they got over it and started out playing them.

I thought Kero wasn't very good. sorry. I'm sure we'll see Wintjes tomorrow.
I thought Michigan's defense was slow and could be turned and was turned routinely. The goalie bailed them out quite often.
I thought Slaker was a real good player for them.
Tech struggled when Michigan had an aggressive forecheck going but could and did break out for odd man rushes, so Michigan kind of went away from it though they did go back to it to start the third.
Michigan got away with a lot of obstruction in front of their own net. Only the most egregious stuff was called.Almost everything Tech did was called with maybe one exception.
I'm hopeful for tomorrow night. It's kind of a must win for Tech at this point.
