Yeah Ohio State had a good recruiting thing going in the Pittsburgh area for a long time. Their focus has shifted further west in recent years but given the map stats maybe it'd be a good idea to keep tabs on the Keystone State still. I think the breakdown of NCAA players from a given state says a lot about the NHL's influence on youth hockey development. (And maybe a surprising lack of influence in areas like places like Washington DC, Nashville, and Raleigh.)
Don't know about that. Ohio State got the short end of the stick with the Sunday/Monday halves of the home-and-home series.
It'd sure be nice. Gonna be really tough, but this is probably as favorable an outlook for a Buckeye sweep as there's been for years.
This is awesome!
As far as I know the only way to follow the ladies from afar is by being a Buckeye Vision subscriber. They used to let folks watch the highlight videos for free, but stopped doing that this season for some reason. Some other schools stream their women's games for free. Sometimes you can catch the lady Bucks on the road. And once or twice a year BTN shows women's games that feature OSU, Minnesota, or Wisconsin. I imagine that's been expanded that to include Penn State as well now.
Yeah it was a really tough loss for the US ladies. Definitely not the way they wanted to finish out that game. Exciting performance by Florence Schelling and Switzerland for bronze though. That game was fun.
Ha ha, absolutely!
Thanks, I appreciate you reading it :)
No problem. A little line brawl is fun every now and then :)
Awesome! Every voice helps!
Do you think it's still possible they can get in on Pairwise? I was kinda thinking as far back as they are and as weak as their non conference schedule was a tourney bid based on Pairwise would be out.
Enjoy your game! Hopefully the ladies get along ok without your support ;)
Yeah not sure my heart can take many more games like that!
I know right? Huge comeback, two enormous conference points!
Wow, progress all around! Personally I'd love to see a Big Ten Women's hockey conference. Get with the program Michigan!
