    The retail version looks good in person. Not sure about how the on-ice version will look.

    Still quite better than our all-caps jerseys from a few years ago.

    I'm fine with it being a third. I wouldn't want it to be our everyday jersey, but it's fine once in a while.

      Nice to take a convoluted split out of the weekend. Good to see Gucciardi back from his injury, too. (Especially on Sunday.)

      Idle next weekend, then Notre Dame before the holiday break. Not sure about how I feel about the timing of everything. MSU is playing with some momentum right now, but the team is also probably banged up.
      I'm comfortable with that "split" to say the least. State played with confidence on Sunday, but could have used couple fewer penalties. Half of Minny's goals were on power play. Gucciardi's shorty: That was impressive for a 3rd game back. He looked shot out of a cannon!

        Well it sure was nice to watch our team play on BTN, which surely is a luxury we all enjoy often seeing as how it’s a big reason our league exists.

        As for the weekend, I think we came out just fine. Looked pretty good skating with Minny on Sunday. Even though we barely scraped out that tie, it felt like we could have just as easily won that game.

        It’s so nice finally watching a team that can skate at an elite level. I’m not sure even the better Comley era teams had such speed.

          Still at the top of the league after the idle weekend. Wisconsin trails by a point. We'll probably need another good weekend to hold onto first entering the holiday break.

          I don't know what to think of Notre Dame. I drove down to South Bend and saw one of their games against BU earlier this year. They looked like a dumpster fire in that game, especially on defense, but it seems like they've improved a lot since then.

            There are five current Spartans going to selection camps for World Jr.s as part of preliminary rosters. 3 are US-born (Geary, Howard, Augustine), 1 is Slovakian (Strbak) and 1 Finnish (Mannisto). Geary is one of only 3 undrafted members on that roster. https://msuspartans.com/news/2023/12...ion-camps.aspx

              Overjoyed for the kids and the program. It feels like it has been a while since we were regularly sending players to selection camps.

              Also really happy for Geary. He has worked hard to get himself playing time. Glad that effort is getting him noticed.

                Duel in The D tickets on sale Friday. It'd sure be nice to get a good amount of green in there.

                  Yeah I'd say MSU stepped it up tonight and provided 60 minutes of misery for the Irish, anticipating and getting in front of passes, forcing a ton of turnovers, and just basically physically outplaying them - I dare say manhandled at times. I'm not sure NDU knew what hit them. It was amazing to see. Bischel was really good early on and I was worried we wouldn't get one past him. But then the first goal game ...

                    We were rock solid last night. I think this team is much better than we were at the start of the year, especially defensively. Passes were crisp and on target all night and Augustine is getting consistent.

                    Agreed on Bischell. He seemed very in control much of the night except on Leshynov’s goal which I think surprised everyone in the building. We really peppered him, though. 56 shots is crazy, even if many were routine save variety.

                      For those of you not going to Grand Rapids, big news - FoxUP in Marquette is televising all four games of the GLI.

                      The nascent ad-hoc Gray TV Network is growing quickly, with local stations in these markets also picking up the games for broadcast (and more potentially to be added):

                      WILX Lansing, MI
                      KFXF Fairbanks, AK
                      KMOV St. Louis, MO
                      KCRG Cedar Rapids, IA
                      KBJR Duluth, MN

                      And for those of you not in one of those footprints, FoxUP will also have a FREE live stream. If you have Flo don't sweat it, the games will also appear there as well.

                        Well shoot, if only the list included something in Clearwater's Spectrum lineup .
