  1. Dude, don't even get me started. They changed the logo to a circle W, and get an opportunity to literally place the logo INTO A CIRCLE at center ice, and they use the letterhead edition. What the hell were they thinking lol.
  2. Tough way to lose, tough to beat that team in a 3 on 3 OT. At least with the pairwise changes it's not a full loss. I wish we played them again early on, I fear by late december when we get them at Yost for the "gli" that team will be really really good.
  3. Thanks, There is nothing better in this whole damn world than beating Michigan in anything. But beating "the greatest hockey team ever assembled" Michigan is even better.
  4. I read a stat that said WMU was 5-7 vs #1 teams the last 12 times we've played one. We always seem to get up for the big teams, and then lose to CC.
  5. This is the type of game where we'll miss Andy for sure. I do expect our team to open things up a little more than in previous seasons. I think you'll see more goals, and more creativity offensively. Hopefully that also means more wins. I'm tired of all of the other NCHC teams having fun in the tournament while we stay at home at #16 or 17 in the pairwise.
  6. I expect we'll get at least one win against them, but have a strong feeling we may sweep. They have a ton of talent, and might be looking ahead of "little" Western Michigan. That Saturday Lawson crowd is going to be nuts.
  7. Andy gives up some of his life essence every year to keep his players from getting older. So far it has had no noticeable effect on his own aging........
  8. WMU's team was the same this past season. We knew they would take some time to gel, which isn't a very good time to play so many teams so quickly in the pod. The Bussi injury was just salt in the wound.
  9. I just checked. WMU finished 6-7-0 vs top 5 teams Other teams in the NCHC vs top 5 teams St. Cloud - 6-4-0 (7-5-0 including NCAA tournament) UMD - 2-6-1 (3-7-1 including NCAA tournament) UND - 3-1-1 (3-2-1 including NCAA tournament) Omaha - 3-6-1 Denver - 2-9-0 Miami - 1-12-0 CC - 2-7-0 I'm not saying that WMU should have been a top 5 team, but there is a enough talent on this team to beat top teams night after night. The consistency wasn't there due to goalie problems and a huge freshman class, but everyone should be older and theoretically they'll be playing more like they did at the end of the year when they went 8-4-1 rather than at the beginning of the year when they went 2-8-2.
  10. They were awful to start the year, no doubt about that but they finished with 6 wins over top five teams. There aren't many other teams in the country that could say that this past season.
  11. Probably not the first time those words have been put together like that
  12. If you guys are interested in a Goalie, WMU's Austin Cain has entered the portal...........
  13. Some day these guys are going to run out of luck. I guess today is not that day.
  14. I almost ran over Rico Blasi in 2012 at Joe Louis Arena before WMU's CCHA championship game against Michigan. I was hurrying and it was dark as the roadway went underneath the arena. He didn't look both ways (was probably half asleep from having to play BG for 3rd place) and I had to slam on my brakes to avoid making a blasi mark on the pavement. Anyway, we beat Michigan to take the title later that evening (which is pretty much the best feeling in the world) and I almost forgot about that "incident".
  15. lol @ Andy's boys. Now I'm picturing this on the bottom of all the player's skates.
