      The one your football team can't beat.
      I also causally know WT, have a lot of respect for her. But don't take the teasing personal, it's just a little friendly ribbing between rivals.

        • Does anyone have more details about why the team was removed (besides the initial article)?

            Given the info is about people getting sick, I would not bet on getting any extra info. Just that someone in the Tier 1 group was tested positive, and that meant that the team was separated.

            Seeing the trend in the state, my hunch is that there was a parent that was part of the Tier 1 group, and they got it from their kid via school. That would be the path where the measures would have been the lightest- seeing your kid after school would not include any social distancing stuff.

              So now I'm left wondering who belongs to the screen name.

              I have respect for you as well. Maybe next season we can meet up again and you can meet my little parasite (she turns 2 in May!)

              A rare WTW sighting. Hope you're doing well. No details, but my guess is along with MichVandal's.

              I wonder if any of the coaching staff have school age kids that brought it home, that's my thought. Our state's Covid number increase seems to have coincided with an increase in in-person schooling.


              Tough way to end the season. How awful does the person that tested positive (besides any possible Covid symptoms) feel? What's worse, losing in OT, or being pulled from competition hours before puck drop?

                Being pulled from competition hours before puck drop.

                At least if you lost in overtime, you had your chance and just didn't have enough to get the win. Not being able to play means you'll never know.

                Also, my comment yesterday about your football team was certainly meant as a joke. I wasn't trying to pile on after what happened yesterday, so I apologize. Felt terrible for you guys yesterday. Hopefully the sports gods make up for it by backing Michigan to the basketball title. : )

                  I would argue that losing a semi-final by a goal with almost not time left in a kind of a fluky way is worse than OT.

                  But this has to be worse than that- being ready to go, playing well, and not even getting a chance.

                  Next real hurdle we have is the draft, and who decides to go. Opportunity is there thanks to the Canadian feeder system.

                  • Just spoke with a guy involved with Dekers who informed me that it was indeed 2 players who tested positive. No names were given and I don't expect them to be given freely. In this day & age though it will come out I'm sure. From what I was told someone tested positive before the team even left for NoDak. That individual as left back in A2. Precautions were taken, everyone got their own room, etc. but a second player tested positive hours before puck drop.

                    That's the info. that I have as of right now.

                      You probably don't actually know me personally. I'm not sure if we've ever spoken. Relax, it's not like I'm stalking or anything.

                      • OK, now I'm thinking "Maybe it wasn't so bad we had to withdraw?" NoDak and UMD are heading into the 5th OT. There's of course no guarantee that we'd even be in this game, let alone be in a 2-2 tie going into the 5th OT but despite the lack of scoring this has been a very entertaining game.

                        • I wonder if UMD had played a game on Friday (and the results were not what Michigan fans wanted) would they have been able to last that many OTs vs. NoDak?

                          • So in the time the board was down, Cam York signed a entry level contract with Phily. Given his season, this really was to be expected- his stock was good going into the season, and just jumped after the World Jrs. We will miss you, Cam, but also root for you (but not for the Flyers).

                              York going Pro was actually more expected that Montoya going Pro. You can't even call it "the worst kept secret in Ann Arbor". It doesn't even qualify as a secret, it was just known.
