    Sitting on this end of the table sucks... Now I know how MTU felt for most of the 2000's

    Tech women are still husky though

    2000s? Try mid 80 onwards.

    You guys are the only school I wish to suffer that level of suck but for longer. You certainly deserve it

    Hoping we can build on last friday and move past the poor start on Saturday.
    MTU Hockey fan since I was carried to a game in 1986 - for those counting... that's a lot of depressing hockey. Still love it.

    This series is going to be interesting.
    Can Tech outwork Northern for 60 minutes each night.
    I believe Evan Anderson and Vallis will get in a game this weekend, Go Huskies!

    Put down the bottle of Malort. We ain't "at their old end of the table" yet.

    In the Mel Pearson Era (not including this season):
    Mel = 72 Wins / Walt = 61 Wins

    Since NMU's NCAA appearance:
    Mel = 72 Wins + Jamie Russell = 4 Wins
    MTU total Wins = 76 / Walt = 76 Wins

    Since Walt Kyle was hired:
    Mel = 72 Wins + Jamie = 70 Wins + Mike Sertich = 10 Wins
    MTU total Wins = 152 / Walt = 237

    Since Tim Watters was MTU's coach:
    Mel = 72 Wins + Jamie = 70 Wins + Sertich = 25 Wins + Tim Watters = 39 Wins
    MTU total Wins = 206 / Walt = 237

    It's Tech v NMU week. Time to honor one of the all-time "great" Wildcats - Craig Kowalski.
    132 games played for Northern... ONE (1) uno total point for his college career. Scoring 0.0076 pts/game has to be some kind of record for D-I hockey.
    Yes, he's a goalie, but In 132 games, how does the puck not just bounce off you onto the goal scorer's stick at least once or twice? Yep, Northern just sux.
    Go Tech!

    You know whats really sad about that? NMU only has 31 more wins since Tim Watters was hired...thats pretty pathetic how much better the perception of these 2 teams over the last 20 years...

    No, he's only counting Walt Kyle's wins for NMU, he's going back further in time to include more wins on the Tech side. I imagine before Kyle on the NMU side you'd start getting into some Comley wins. (at least I think it went Comley right into Kyle)

    Correct, I was just showing that Walt has more wins than Watters, Sertich, Russell, and Pearson combined.

    Head to head, Pearson has done about 2-3 more wins than Walt per season.

    Adding Rick Comley's wins to even up the Watters years (from 1996 through last season):
    MTU Total = 206 / NMU Total = 357



    My point was that NMU isn't the complete dumpster fire that some would make it out to be. Sure, there may be a faint odor of gasoline being poured, but we're no where near the bleak eras MTU fans survived through. Pearson has done one hell of a job righting the ship, and I hope he continues in the direction he's set your team.

    If we have modest walk-up sales the game in Houghton will probably sell out. If you want to see one game a year this is the one. Friday night in Marquette will be chippy and end with lots of bad blood. Saturday should be an outright bloodbath. I'm calling for a Tech 4-2 on Friday and then a 7-2 whooping on Saturday. Make it happen boys!

    True story about Craig Kowalski... Our girlfriends were roommates in the dorms Sophomore year at NMU. I bought them one of those $129 black metal framed futons for their dorm. Craig broke it boinking his girlfriend on it one too many times. We were all sitting around drinking one night and discussing what happened to the futon (as they had not fessed up to it yet). Her or she admitted to it and we all started cracking up. His comment was "What can I say... I am a monster in the sack!"

    Every time his name comes up, I always think back to that story.
    Go Cats!

    Both teams are looking good after 1. There were signs of nervous players... just as Coach Kyle mentioned a few minutes ago. Hopefully the Cats can find their stride and light some more lamps.

    Tech just taking too many penalties again, knew they would pay eventually.

    And right on cue, even with the lead Northern goons it up on Petan.

    Re: NMU vs MTU: How the Tables Have Turned....

    But overall Tech just looks out of sync out there, nothing clicking for them at all. The 5 minute power play looking really really bad for us. Definitely not the same team as last season for Tech

    NMU looked amazing. I don't remember the last time I watched them play that well. Great job!

    Ugly, ugly, ugly. Nothing went well for us, 90% of that due to the play of NMU, but man when we looked bad we looked bad. NMU's passing was crisp, quick and accurate, we missed so many passes and gave them the puck so many times that is just killed any and all momentum. I completely disagreed with the major against Jackson though, he never made a move to hit knee to knee, he just was skating as was NMU's player and they hit knee to knee, neither players fault, just an unfortunate event.

    That was the best game I've seen NMU play in a long long time. Tolvanen had some huge saves, only two Wildcat penalties, and a HUGE 5 minute kill.
