  • MSU Spartans Offseason

    For sake of formality:

    Season is over
    Season is over
    Season is over

    Time for a haiku.

    Re: MSU Spartans Offseason

    Pretty much the only business left for me is checking out the schedule. I hope it is released soon.

    I also hope it's pretty soft. I know we have Denver and North Dakota in there, though.

    Yes, it's cool loading the schedule with games against premier opponents but it is less cool when you lose most of those games.

      We also have Tech and Ferris at home, as well as a trip up to Sault Ste Marie.

        Well, that's 4 series in which we will likely be underdogs. You would think we could count on beating up on LSSU but Whitten seems to have them moving in a better direction.

        I honestly believe the incoming freshman class will have us at least a little excited next season. I am not optimistic they will be ready to launch this team north of .500 territory next year. I also don't think we'll see any sort of Wisconsin style fall.

          According to the schedule thread, we still have six NC games to be filled.

          WCHA teams have open slots, but they've all unveiled their schedules already.

          That leaves:
          HE: Northeastern (I believe we're doing the MBB, WBB, hockey triple header in EL this year), Vermont, Notre Dame, UNH, UMass, Maine, UConn, BC
          ECAC: Union, Quinnipiac, Princeton, Harvard
          AHC: All but RIT and Air Force.
          Ind: Arizona St

            I think you can lock in Arizona State and Northeastern.

                Wasn't that FSU series a home-and-home or a home-and-neutral? I guess I could have been seeing things.

                  I admire your optimism.

                  We lost a bunch of key players over the offseason and I'm not as high on the incoming freshmen. I'm bracing for something near 30 losses.

                    I thought we were supposed to play them at Munn and Van Andel when we had them in the HoF Game, but the Van Andel game fell through.

                      Schedule is unveiled.

                      OOC includes:
                      Toronto
                      at LSSU
                      vs Denver
                      vs Princeton (1)
                      vs Tech
                      vs Ferris (h/h)
                      at NoDak
                      vs Northeastern (1)
                      GLI

                      Looks to be all Fri/Sat except for NE unless adjustments are made after basketball schedules are put out.

                          Looking at the schedule, Only 14 Non-con games. Two fewer then last season.
                          With the number of Freshmen, and throw in a Goalie who, when he has played wasn't that good, I envision a record of 3-9 when MSU starts B10 play.

                            I saw that the Golf Teams have a fabulous $5,000,000 new practice facility at Akers West. Has anyone heard of any updates concerning the re-modeling of Munn? The entrance/atrium/trophy cases etc....

                              Got your checkbook ready? Probably the only way it's going to happen. No one wants to attach their name to the product on the ice right now.
