    Fixed.

    It was a pretty even game, and both goalies kept it close. Both teams had a lot of good scoring chances.

    Genoe kept MTU in this game. Anyone else or Genoe not being hot, and it's another MTU failure like the GLI.

    Total goal differential: Tech 7, Northern 6

    Guess this means we win the imaginary cup again this year.
    Its nice to know that there is still one team out there that we're better than!

They shouldn't let these games slip away and cannot afford additional missteps or once again they are looking at a trip to The Joe with Championship or Bust!!!
    uhm...winning against tech would not have dropped NMU's rpi...

    I agree though, I think seeing Michigan/Michigan State at JMSIA every once in a while would be sweet, but there's no way they'd go for it.
    **** Michigan and State, why would we care about getting second-rate programs like that when we regularly get Wisconsin, Minnesota, Denver and North Dakota at the Mac.

    Yeah, I'd love to see Ferris come here. I could whip out my FSU jersey if we're getting beat too badly.

    I see getting the non-Yooper CCHA schools to reciprocate a home series as unlikely. They probably wouldn't want to make two or three trips to the UP in the same season, and already whine about trips to Marquette as is.

    Its only Vermont. Ive been there many times and you are not missing much. Its a magical land (with or without chemical influence) where cows outnumber people, and maple syrup runs through the riverbeds. Though, it is much better than that dump of a neighbor to its east.
