    Michigan Tech Miners would be most appropriate. The logo could be crossed pick axes and the mascot would look like MSU's Sparty with a lighted hardhat and carry a pick ax. He could throw pasties into the crowd...

      Brown is also the Bears, and despite their nickname officially being the Big Red Cornell uses a bear in all their imagery. And we've already got the Alaska Nanooks in the WCHA. The next one would be the 5th, making it the most used nickname/image in college hockey (there are 4 Wildcats/Catamounts/Bobcats, 3 Tigers, and 3 Bulldogs).

      Considering that Michigan tech was the first college hockey team to use "Huskies" (1919 as opposed to 1929 for N'Eastern and 1931 for SCSU), this is either some kind of gag or the most inane suggestion yet. Especially since the root idea came from a skunk fan.

        For those keeping score at home...
        Cats - NMU, Vermont, QU, UNH
        Tigers - CC, RIT, Princeton
        Bulldogs - UMD, Yale, Ferris
        Huskies - MTU, SCSU, U-Conn, Northeastern

        Just imagine if the old CCHA and WCHA had merged

          ha ha. that's a great idea. Crossed pick axes would be cool.

              For those of you in the UP from Newberry west, Tech and NMU have re-upped with TV6 to televise all four hockey games between the two schools in the 2015-16 season. The deal will also include the football game, men's and women's basketball, and volleyball contests on TV as well. Most games will air on FoxUP 6.2, with the slight possibly of moving to the main TV6 6.1 signal or the new 6.3 "GRIT" subchannel.

                  MTU Hockey fan since I was carried to a game in 1986 - for those counting... that's a lot of depressing hockey. Still love it.

                        A lot of stick taps on the ice for you guys and the effort that was made over the last few years. I only partially understand the level of effort required to keep a web site like THG going. By comparison my site is pretty much archival in nature - no dynamic content, no deadlines, I do what I want and I get to it when I can. However THG was so much more with content that was dynamic, timely and utilized some of the great web technology that is available today to interact visitors and fans. If something about Friday's game wasn't up by Sunday morning, folks wondered if the staff had fallen down a well. If I don't post a new jersey for six months, no one is going to bat an eyelash. Far more pressure on THG to be fresh and timely...

                        So we know that some of the staff will be spending their time with "Baby B." and the only real question left to be asked is will the other half of the staff be spending their free time working on their netminding skills or a "Baby M."


                        In closing I have to agree that if the goal was to push Tech to promote the team like a true D-I operation, then you absolutely made that happen. (I'm not sure if you can take credit for the HD videoboard getting put up, but pretty much everything we see today I think they learned from you guys.)

                        I'm really hoping that next season Tech will pick up the live chat feature through their website with Muckalt moderating AND posting from the bench. Maybe get him one of those voice to text headsets. We can dream right?

                          Similar, but Tech Hockey Guide ACTUALLY DID succeed before it was declared.
