        Yes, I got a good close view of one. Hideous.

              Can any one give the reasoning behind this:

              Because the rink will be Olympic-sized, that will require workers to freeze that much bigger of a surface. Building a bigger rink was the one request Berenson had, slightly changing the way his team will prepare to play inside Michigan Stadium.

              The bigger rink will slightly change the angles for the goalies and shooters, and will create more space for defensemen to cover.

              "We've always been a team that has seemed to be able to adjust to Olympic rinks," Berenson said. "So I think this will be good."
              Besides Berenson is getting senile?

              NCHC: UMD, UND, SCSU, WMU
              WCHA: UAH, BSU, FSU, LSSU, MSU, MTU, NMU

                I like it. It is similar to ones they wore in the 1940's.

                Random question as well: How are the splitting the gate receipts for this? Is this taking the place of a CCHA game?

                  I think Red thinks Michigan can use the big ice surface better than MSU can. It also gets the action 7.5 feet closer to the stands.

                  Maybe he just likes the bigger surface.

                    It is a CCHA game. I don't know how the gate receipts will be distributed.

                        Maybe. Berenson isn't concerned about that as much as providing a more interesting game for the fans and players (providing that we'll be able to see it.)
                        I think every outdoor game has its own merits. Last season's game in Madison was frigid, the ice was too hard and chipped and the glare was extreme. Tweaking the rink dimensions, time of day and month may provide better playing conditions. Can't help the weather, though.

                        I also heard he is planning on having the crease slushy on the end that is defended twice by the Spartans.

                            Are you saying that a proclaimed legal 'elitist' would fight to overturn that decision?

                              Not the proclaimed legal elitist Webster, but the literary/allegorical Webster.
