At least no program that came from the CCHA will. Michigan was in two FF's in the last eight seasons. How about your program?
    Not to quibble but our streak of consecutive NCAA Tournament Appearances ultimately got to 22 ending in '12.

    We have the most:
    Tournament Appearances @ 35 tied with Minnesota followed by Boston U and Boston C @ 33 each
    Championships @ 9 followed by Denver and North Dakota @ 7 each
    Frozen Four Appearances @ 24 followed by Boston U and Boston C @ 22 eah
    Consecutive Frozen Four Appearances @ 10 followed by Boston U (twice) and Colorado College @ 5 each
    Frozen Four Wins @ 25 followed by No. Dakota and Boston U @ 21 each

    Yeah, when was that? I can't exactly remember, it's been years since UM played in the tournament.

    It usually is.

    I think they might have actually beat us once a few years ago.

    They've beaten sparty a few times.

    I'm amazed those are the only commits to Mich schools.

    Either way, as much as we will need him vs. PSU let's just be sure he is not rushed back until he is ready regardless of if he just thinks he is ready.
    I totally agree.

    Does anyone else find it strange that they list 5 skaters and a goalie committed to Michigan and one skater to Western. That's it. NO other commitments.

    Which is what I always saw in Morrison. Which is also why I keep being reminded of Brendan with Kyle.

    I wish some of that anticipation could rub off on the rest of the team- especially in our defensive zone. Just a *little* more of that, and our D would be pretty darned good.

    Three ejections tonight. All three of them Wolverines with the USA ejection being an incoming 2016-17 freshman.

    What do those guys care, though? It's not like their college head coach for next year was there.
    +1. This has gotten rather old.

    But all you do is try to convince us he is right. Which you have done repeatedly over the years. The message has gotten rather stale that it may be a big deal that you guys beat us. It's not.

    Do you REALLY think your team is that bad? Wow, I thought you actually liked Northern. After so many years of your posts, it is pretty clear that you think Northern is a pretty bad hockey school.

    You must be really popular up there.

    I kind of agree with you, to an extent. The game was wayyyyy to physical for my tastes though. When Connor went down I started thinking that we might regress to a sparty level. Granted we still dto not know exactly what happened but IMHO he'll play next week at Penn State (*fingers crossed*). I can't remember who I was talking to before the season started about the weak home schedule this year and he said that he'd bet there were games with about 3k people in attendence. Well in last nights exhibition game against the jail-bait Michigan had 5,114 there. So yea, not quite 3,000....
