    Never argue with an idiot; they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

            Okay, I'm going to have to borrow that. In trade I offer the dog I posted a while back in the Animals>Humans thread (the "I don't mean to stare" dog).

                Maybe i should have read this thread before buying my Pick Six ticket package from the WMU AD?! The player that left a message about hockey tickets sounded a lot more upbeat about the coming season than any of you guys!

                  The last flicker of hope I had under the current regime was beaten out of me at the 10-0 game you see in Bronco's sig.

When you listed your preseason poll I noticed that you mentioned that BG Defense was "horrible", and so I thought I would check last years stats. As it turns out, WMU averaged 27.1 shots per game and they allowed 36.1 shots per game. While BG averaged 31.5 shots per game and allowed an average of 27.5 shots per game. Horrible?

                      1 - I never said WMU's wasn't horrible. It was, but in a much different way then BGSU's.

                      2 - BGSU allowed one more goal against on the season then WMU in fewer games played.

                      3 - There are other stats then just shots allowed... such as goals allowed, quality scoring chances allowed, goaltender stats (BGSU's save % was atrocious), etc.

                        I do not disagree, shots allowed do not indicate the quality of shot. I have not seen that stat or I would have included that as well. However, saves % is not a true reflection on the defense is it? I was just questioning your validity of analysis for picking the Falcons to finish last. Certainly, they finished last 2 out of three years and they did lose some quality players from last year, but they picked up some good guys, probably the most important is the new goalie from the BCHL. Also, Williams as head coach is very focused, he will have his team mentally prepared. I predict you will see an improved team from last year. Let me know if you need any help with your predictions next year.

                        Good luck to your Broncos, I know some of your players and they are great kids.
