    I wonder if that alum that we met in St. Louis finally made his donation that was contingent on MTU winning the GLI?

      That was St. Louis? I was thinking it was Washington DC.... Ah, what do I know, I was sober for about 2 hours of those trips combined.

            Even though i'm a Tech fan, i would have to agree with the whiners. Yost is the best venue in Michigan to watch hockey when you take everything into consideration.

              Best does not equal bleacher seats.

                Have you been to a game there? Those bleachers are HORRIBLE and people always sneak their friends into the row which makes it extremely uncomfortable. At least the MacInnes arena has individual wooden seats. Our band is much better, we have the Blue Skirt Waltz, and our fight song is better...it's not a downfield football march.

                  We haven't had wooden seats for a few years now

                    I have to say that since the installation of the new scoreboard, Yost has lost it for me, and the bleachers are not that good from many parts,Though yes it does have a lot going for it. I disagreed with the writer on Compuware too, it's a HS rink if you ask me and the ice cube is as good as it is. BTW Fielding Yost was also an AD if I'm not mistaken not just a football coach.

                      I've been to Yost, Munn, Berry, the Joe, and MacInnes.

                      For atmosphere, I'll take the Mac any day.
                      I was told there would be no math...

                        Very quiet on the forum about the upcoming game. I'd say we need a sweep and should be able to get one.

                          Yost is the best IMO. and even better now after the new renovations. i was just there a few weeks ago. i respectfully disagree with you on the atmosphere being better at the Mac. Yost seats 8,000 and is sold out most of the time. the crowd is always raucous and the band is on par with Tech's pep band. The Mac is usually half full at best. I'm sorry but watching a game in a half full arena doesn't compare. i dont care how comfortable the seats are.

                            From the article, likely lines tonight:
                            Johnstone-Furne-Gordic
                            B. Pietila-Kero-Petan
                            Khaira-D. Johnstone-Gould
                            Eick-Rix - Aaron or Chad Pietila

                            Sova- Hyland or Fillion

                            Likely Copley in net

                            Pearson was careful to note that though urgency is important, neither panic nor defeatism has set in inside the Huskies' locker room.

                                Finally getting caught up on recruits, just published an article on Travis Brown: Huskies Ink Royal Blueline

                                Hopefully I'll get caught up on the rest before we get more, but that might not happen (as soon as this weekend). Hopefully I'll have something on Mark Evan Auk on Tuesday and Trevor Cope next Friday.
