    Re: MSU Spartans 2011/12 - Alum in Sportcoat behind Bench

    Any thoughts on who gets the start in goal tomorrow for MSU. Yanakeff has started more games this year and has better numbers, but he really struggled against Miami two weeks ago. I thought Palmisano played pretty well Saturday (except for a 4 minute stretch in the middle of the 2nd when the whole team forgot to play). He still finished with 38 saves while giving up the four goals. Tough choice for coach if you ask me. I'd probably go with Yanakeff, but I won't argue either way.

    We have to win tomorrow in order to stop back-to-back days of meltdowns.

    Is there any TV coverage available in Mid Michigan for the game tomorrow? TIA
    That would be ESPN-U. If you don't have it ... Reno's East is all set .

    Congrats on your bid this year!

    I look forward to a tough, hard-hitting, injury-free game with you guys on Friday....

    My best buddy from high school went to Michigan State and he loved the place...

    He loved it so much, he went on the "seven year plan"...

    Had something to do with his fraternity and a lot of time spent on a bar stool...

    I vaguely remember a weekend when I went to visit him and he got me lit up like a Christmas tree in some basement bar with crazy drinks like a "Shark Bowl" or some insanity like that.

    Good luck to you!

    Keith.

    ugh

    And thanks for the good words, CCHA brethren.

    It feels good to be dancing again. I think it will go back to a yearly tradition again before too long around here.

    And congrats to Coach Anastos and the team! They definitely worked their butts off over the last year.

    Didn't expect that. Welcome back to the dance.

    Oh, and I saw the article about Carney on the CCHA coverge- great to see him get better, and may even get back on the ice!

    Richly deserved on both counts. I can't think of a player with a bigger impact on his team's success since Ryan Miller.

    Pretty great night for Torey Krug. In addition to being named to the lishttp://board.uscho.com/newreply.php?p=5396634&noquote=1t of 10 Hobey Baker finalists, he also picked up CCHA offensive defenseman and player of the year honors.

It wouldn't be the biggest upset in 1 v 4 history (Holy Cross?) but it's not exactly BU in GR again.
    Mind you, I'm wary the chickens haven't hatched yet, but ... I'm sure the players would love to score an upset in round 1. But I think even the chance to compete yet again, and give a #1 seed a game, will wipe some of the bad taste of last weekend away.

    How much thought have some of you mainstays given about the discussions regarding the replacement of Munn? Does the program need to grow to justify the arena or would the arena help the program grow? I'm guessing we aren't shooting for the Ralph. Any models in mind?
    I am encouraged by the numbers that Munn drew against Alaska the last weekend. Good to see 5,500 and 5,900 against a school not named Michigan, Notre Dame or Ohio State. The question is valid, but I strongly believe new or even significantly upgraded facilities, plus a renergized program, will put us over the top in terms of regularly selling out the place.

    I hope any planned new arena allows for expansion (+2000?) given the new league in 2013 and the size of 3 existing Big10 arenas + Penn State.
