    Agree with your last sentence 100%. We're in 5th place in the BTHC, only one spot above Penn State. This team isn't good enough to get cocky and think all they have to do is step on the ice and they have someone beat. Seems to me Penn State beat this team last year in that tournament in Pittsburgh.

Trust me, Tompkins is the more developed of the two at the moment and I'm pretty certain goaltending coach Joe Exter agrees. It does not mean though that Frey couldn't pass Tompkins but he's not there yet basically due to the fact our staff hasn't had as long to work with him.
    Of course Exter has had longer to work with Tomkins, Frey just came in at the end of the year.

    Has anyone heard the status on Gedig and Dalrymple? Gedig was at the OSU Women's games this weekend as they swept Minnesota State.
    You are correct they can not talk Penn State lightly. I for one do not want to see Ohio state be the first team to lose a conference game to them.

    Talk about stealing one! Man did Wisconsin control most of that hockey game or what? Frey was outstanding all night long keeping them in the game with save after save. It was nice to see this team score 5 on 5 goals tonight. Coming out of this weekend with 3 Points is huge. Now come home and do what is supposed to be done sweep Penn State.

    Only 3 of our first squad from '63-'64 will be there and that's because one personally called the other two and told them about it!
    Is this REALLY the best the University can do on recognizing this milestone?
    So much for reaching out to the Alumni

    I see the rotation continuing but if Frey continues to play like he did yesterday I could also see him winning the job.
    I didn't see him doing particularly better than Tomkins as the goals given up Friday were a fluke off Greco's skate and bad turnovers by our D by the net.
    At this point based on what we've seen so far the question is are we going to be a 2 goalie team or is it yet to be determined that we will have a set starting goaltender? I personally believe that when you have two very skilled freshman goaltenders and no upperclassmen goaltenders you have to do a 2 man routine to utilize them properly and to keep one from leaving.

    Well for the past two weekends Coach has started two different goalies. Since they're both freshmen it stands to reason we're going to go the route that Miami uses and have a two goalie a weekend setup. It just will take a little getting used to as we have for the longest time always have had a designated starter and backups.

    Next Saturday I believe is the day we celebrate 50 years of Buckeye hockey. We honored our original team back in 1999 when we moved into the Schott. Not all of that team could attend and now there will again be some missing who have gone to play on the big ice in the sky.
    I look forward to seeing those of all our previous teams who can attend and share the stories of good times past.
