    For me it isn't any one thing, but more the pattern of how things were being handled (Shields concerns, the GLI game, Covid forms, etc). Maybe any one of those things you might get a pass, but for whatever reason it became the norm rather than a one-time exception. I still think there is heat on Manuel for his lack of action through this whole disaster. We're still waiting to hear what his excuses will be for not acting sooner when he had all the info months earlier.

    " ... but — purely from a hockey standpoint — the lying on the COVID contact tracing forms is the worst offense."

    Wow, this saga sure ended oddly, especially when you consider how many years Mel worked at Michigan. Issues aside, he had an enviable record as HC. When he left Tech, I heard some rumblings about recruiting issues that Joe had to clean up. We Tech fans were irritated that Mel ran back to U of M after turning Tech hockey around but in hindsight, it was a blessing. Mel should call it a career and retire...

    I do hope that the relationship between AA and Houghton can be repaired now.

    Not Covid, but I'd have thought falsifying information on NCAA tracking forms would warrant something. But your last sentence is dead-on.

    I'm asking that U of Michigan face real sanction for its disregard of Covid protocol*, specifically, the next time Michigan qualifies for the NCAA tourney (autobid or PWR) they are automatically out of the field. The tourney slot goes to highest PWR not in.
    Did you seriously think the NCAA was going to sanction Michigan over COVID? I hope not because COVID has become more controversial as the days and months move on. It's better for the NCAA to worry about football and basketball right now than ice hockey. There's no money in ice hockey for them so they will turn a cheek.

    Seemed appropriate given the person, and that you played down COVID since it started. Now you pretend it’s a big deal that should get sanctions. Make up your mind.
    At risk of repeating myself:

    The virus cost them one tournament; what's the lie going to cost? (My guess: Nothing.)

    Downplay it all you want, the NCAA said Covid was a big deal. Big enough to keep fans out of arenas for an entire season. Lying to them about it should be just as big of a deal. But it's not because "that team had to withdraw anyways." It's sad almost everybody would agree had it been a smaller school, they'd be facing serious penalties/sanctions for doing so.
    At the time it was a big deal. For the NCAA it would have been the easiest investigation ever. Even if they did, what would be punishment be since two years has passed? The NCAA by their inactivity has shown, once again, they are a governing body that selectively enforces rules. The bigger the name/money they bring in, the less like they are to investigate.

    IMO the canceling of the GLI game against WMU was a bigger slap in the NCAA's face. Yes, U of M was discussing hosting the game while their HC was actively trying to weasel out of it 6 months before, the administration agreed to the game and put it on the schedule. Yes, U of M had the required number of players to dress a full line-up. No they had to rational excuse, but the Head Skunk Weasel made up some BS and refused to play the game. Why, just because he was worried about PW? Please. If he was worried about PW he wouldn't have played Tech. Oh wait, he was forced to play Tech...

    If nothing else, Karma has caught up to U of M. Their HC is gone, they have a rookie HC, and while I'm sure they will survive, they have given themselves a black eye.

    Covid positive tests sent them home, as would've happened any positive team.

    What's the ramification, the consequence, of factual misrepresentations on NCAA Covid tracking forms?

    They were sent home. And you lost.

    Ah those were able to stay per the NCAA. Nice try though
    Just like the COVID situation (as in sanctions). But someone misses that point because their team lost.

    but the money justification to abuse an entire group of people is so ok compared to someone lying on COVID tracing that didn’t even result in anyone getting sick that we know of.

    let’s check our priorities here.

    you guys have some real issues.
