    The youngins around here (myself included) have been VERY spoiled. Yeah, we may have seen our share of mid-year swoons and some epic collapses in the postseason, but we haven't really had to deal with slow, painful starts or down years. Hopefully, as most people seem to think, this is merely an example of the former.
    Love and honor to Miami forever and a day. Go RedHawks!

      However, we are approaching a cirtical juncture here. If this keeps up, we all may need to buy new jerseys, something is clearly not working

        That's a very drastic step! We have to at least try wearing our current ones inside-out.

          Spot on.

          At least for me, being a glass half empty type of person, the question that scares the crap out of me is, are we North Dakota, or are we Bowling Green?

          We haven't had a down year - everything indicates that we are prefectly fine and even if this year is a complete disaster, the ship will right itself in the end, but there is always that creeping doubt that as soon as we relinquish the top, we aren't coming back, and become another flash in the pan. Great ties to the USNTDP pipeline, a new facility, proven coaching staff, that shouldn't happen, but it's still scary.

          I just need to lose my voice at the game tonight and everything will be sunshine and rainbows again, Love & Honor!

                They kept mentioning the fact that Justin Vaive was in the house last night, which made me think of this...

                  I know what you are saying, 628, and I have the same half empty mentality, but six straight NCAAs and seven of eight years in the tournament, three championship, Hobey, two frozen fours, national championship game - that's a pretty long flash or a pretty big pan to build upon. We'll see and I hope you lose your voice tonight. L&H

                    I know that I'm probably in the minority here, but I was relieved over last night's game. I understand we didn't get the result we wanted, but I saw a lot of marked improvement in a lot of areas. The speed, aggressiveness, willingness to make the extra pass. It was light-years ahead of where they were just a week ago. I'm not sure it is the familiarity of home-ice, but I think we can expect a great effort tonight and am calling for a win.
                    Long live the "Brotherhood"!!!!!

                    Giving up a home run in Great American Ballpark is kind of like walking into a chocolate factory and yelling "I WANNA BE FAT!!!"

                    It's going to happen. Just give it time.....and a little effort.

                      Miami looked pretty pathetic until the last couple minutes of the 1st period. If they could play like that the entire game, we wouldn't have anything to worry about. Clearly the ability is there... Really need to come out strong in the 2nd and get the next goal.

                        Did this team just click? The team on the ice in the second period did not look like the team I've been watching the past month. Two SHGs is definitely a nice way to turn the momentum around. If they can keep that going 20 more minutes...

Soo Tech deserves credit for sticking to their game plan of slowing the game down and getting traffic around the net. Miami bumbled on key opportunities (they had many), and I think that really is the difference. Once this team gets comfortable with their system, and finds leaders, they will be tough to beat. Interesting to hear people bailing already. Trust me, most CCHA fans would KILL to have this team.
                            Soo Tech? Relax pal, you're showing your age. I don't usually post on other team's pages but your arrogance and sense of entitlement got the best of me....Soo Tech?? That's pre 1966. Take it easy. After next season you and Rico will be in your elite league where you won't have to dirty your hands playing the dregs of college hockey.....Ferris and Lake State........gee, where did those 12 points go? At least things will be easier when you get to play Notre Dame, Michigan, and Western Michigan.

                                This almost has to be satire.
