    Re: NMU 2013-14 Season: A Shot In the Dark

    Definitely looking forward to this season of NMU hockey. I'm trying to pick out a home series to go to, as I live 8 hours from campus, but I am definitely planning a road trip to watch the Cats in Huntsville. Very excited to see their arena, and maybe even get a little bit of spring golf in.

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
    Or close the wall up with our English dead.
    In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
    As modest stillness and humility:
    But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
    Then imitate the action of the tiger;
    Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
    Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
    Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
    Let pry through the portage of the head
    Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
    As fearfully as doth a galled rock
    O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
    Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
    Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
    Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
    To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
    Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
    Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
    Have in these parts from morn till even fought
    And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
    Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
    That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
    Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
    And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
    Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
    The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
    That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
    For there is none of you so mean and base,
    That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
    I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
    Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
    Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
    Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'

    Go Cats!!! Kick some *** this year!!!

    Start out with some Alumni News... For those that haven't heard, Jared Coreau will start the season in the Big Show... He'll be backing up Howard in Detroit...

    As far as the season goes, I have no clue what to expect... New faces, new conference, new look to NCAA hockey as a whole... This looks like it could be a fun ride

    GO CATS! GO CATS! GO CATS GO!!!
    Coreau was sent back to Grand Rapids and Mrazek was recalled today.

    I too look forward to a different looking league. Should be fun to watch it unfold.

    For the last 24 years I've made it to NMU's league final four tournament whenever the Cats made it that far. This year however, I plan on going to Grand Rapids regardless if Northern makes it there or not. With a league full of "little guys" and "like minded" schools, I figure the WCHA can use our support. Plus the absence of some school's arrogant fans (Michigan, Minnesota, etc.) will make it easier to take if my Cats don't make it there.
