I am resigned to Michigan finishing 4th and hopefully playing Penn State. They seem to match up better with them than Wisconsin. Either way, a win vs Notre Dame is uplifting and a 2nd on Sunday will be another boost to their NCAA resume'. As long as they don't fall on their face vs. ASU and at home in the 1st round of the B1G Ten playoffs, I feel good about their chances to make the NCAA field.
I would hope the powers that be there don't schedule any more late season non-conference games. It certainly doesn't do you guys any favors for gaining valuable points.
Most teams can peak and play better as the regular season winds down as demonstrated by some of your recent wins and to have conference games at that point in time affords better opportunity for wins.

I am happy to be eating my words about hosting the 1st weekend. Go Blue! Solid win over Notre Dame. I'm surprised by the high stick call in the 3rd that waved off the Notre Dame goal. It was close.
Our penalty kill is still a big weakness, but if we can score 4 goals a game, maybe it's ok?

With a 7 team conference someone is stuck with either a bye or non-conference the last week. Sucks that this season it's Michigan

As a relative university, ASU would fit like Notre Dame. They would politically dominate all the rest.

They really want badly to extend their sphere of influence coast to coast. Just hope they don't take in a another school like Rutgers to achieve it.

It would only be until the Pac12 got enough for a hockey league. And by then there would be another B1G hockey school.

Rooting for you guys today. If you can sweep ND maybe you can earn some Pairwise love.

I have not seen them wear it in some time- I have it actually from the 1996 NC season.

Thanks- it was a nail biter but the guys dug deep and Lavigne is playing out of his mind.

Surprised me. Let's see if they stay at 11 playing ASU. Two must win games. Then the likelihood of playing Wisconsin or PSU in the first round.

My wife has the one I bought her from around late 1990's.

Nope, that jersey has been eliminated. I wish it would come back. I still have mine which I bought in 2003 and wear it every game that I go to. It would be a sweet surprise if they brought it back in the B1G TEN tourney this year.

It was a good game and a great atmosphere. I think that's the best atmosphere we've had in Yost in a couple of years. Loud, involved, and fun.

What others said. The 3rd jersey is maize with a block M these days.

Agreed, for a 1-0 game, the crowd was intense, and into it from the start. Also, it was jammed to the gills last night, they even had the SRO tickets sold, i can't recall a game with that many people in the SRO areas.
