    Personally I always thought the early OOC schedule wins were smoke and mirrors. I'm too lazy to do the math in hindsight, but feel free to quickly peruse the PW of most of the early vanquished teams. The bottom line is that we can't compete in the B1G and, until we can do that, I'm staying on the sidelines since I feel like a broken record by rehashing the same observations.

    It's a January-February thing. I guess Lewandowski and Loughran were more than just the glue for a superficially decent late-fall/early-winter team.
    I wouldn't say it was superficial. With those two healthy, MSU was actually decent. The team is still playing hard, but Lewandowski was the kind of guy that made everyone else on the ice play better.

    It certainly makes you wonder about what next season's going to be like.

    Right? Why does it seem the program is back in the same place every 5-7 years? Staring into the dark valley of 2022-23, and the abyss that is recruiting.

    Aside from the goaltending, this team is really, really, really bad without Loughran and Mitch.

    A 2022-23 commitment from an OA F out of the NAHL:

    I've seen that show before when Cole came on board. Color me unimpressed.

    Verbal from Christian Kim, a California forward. He has put up big numbers on his AAA junior team. Probably at least 2 years away from landing at MSU.

    Well, we got our wish, albeit by the skin of our teeth. ND is nails but we hung in there well enough. A good first half for the team and probably our best start in years. That 20 win mark still feels miles away with our remaining schedule, though.

    I just noticed that last night technically goes down as a tie? The first OT? That sucks.

    Last series before the break at ND. A split would be a good way to cap off a solid half of the season. I never feel good about playing ND, though. It almost certainly can’t be the case but if you told me MSU has never beaten the Irish since the B1G started I would not be confident that was incorrect.

    Update: ok, I got curious and checked. We have beaten the Irish several times, including once last year. There was one year, 2018, we went 0-6. Clearly it left an impression.
    This team would do VERY well to split each of its remaining series the rest of the way. I'm not holding my breath, but that would be great progress. Let's see how they look tonight/tomorrow vs. ND - I see the games are being broadcast on NBCSN.

    Also add Jack Sparkes as a verbal probably for 2023. A big 6’8” dman from Ontario.
    In other recruiting news, it looks like Michael Feenstra, '01 dman with Dubuque, decommitted, unless the team's 12/03 line-chart is mistaken.
