    Notre Dame v Michigan, BC v Wisconsin, UConn v Ohio State... regardless of the actual merits of those schools as D-I hockey programs (results vary), those are matchups that your average idiot fan can relate to, as they know who those schools are.
    ^ well said.

Hell except for Lake State and Maine the Gophers have a winning record against every single college hockey team in the country and if they played them more often the Gophers would have a winning record against them also. Over the years while the Gophers continued its winning ways the Wolverines dropped down a notch or two until Red showed up to save the day. Don't get me wrong Michigan is a solid program but surprisingly enough it's not on the level of the Gophers.
    Eisenhower and Michigan hockey rose and fell together.

    St. Louis regional, 2011. Before the B1G. With both BC and Michigan there, as well as CC and UNO.

    Man, if they're giving you a vote, there's something wrong with the system.

    Yes, because gridlock and (at best) remaining stagnant is the best situation for college hockey.

    Couldn't have said it better. When Wisconsin hosts the Frozen Four in Tampa and not at the Bradley Center something is very wrong. Fire Alvarez he is clueless as clueless
    gets.

    Barry Alvarez was the driving force behind the Big10 conference and look what it has produced!! Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Mich State all have strong legacy's dating back to the 1960's and many championship banners hanging from the rafters. They sold the fans on more TV exposure (Big Lie #1), great conference rivalries (Big Lie #2), sold it as the premier hockey conference in college hockey (Big Lie #3) and lastly the projections of sold out stadiums and more revenue for the athletic departments (Barry's only concern when it comes to Badger hockey) (Big Lie #4).

    I wish them well for the Big Ten's sake but I am not holding my breath. Good luck because you are going to need it. Imo, Defense and goaltending wins championships.
