Born in the middle of an ice storm and destined to be a hockey fan. My grandma has never forgiven me for chucking my sweet sixteen party in favor of attending the Ohio State-Miami game. I'm excited to be covering the awesomeness that is Buckeye hockey for Eleven Warriors.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: The Buckeyes' run to the Frozen Four in 1998. Any game in which Ohio State beats Miami is a good game, but January 8, 2011 was a particularly memorable one with John Albert bringing OSU all the way back from an 0-2 hole. The blowout of Notre Dame in the 2010 CCHA playoffs was pretty fun too.

Ryan Dzingel, and yes. The Bucks lost leaders on both sides of the puck, Dzingel and Max McCormick were a major part of the offense and they left early for the pros. Curtis Gedig, who played a ton of minutes on the blue line, graduated. This was always going to be something of a rebuilding year for OSU but the team still should not look as bad as it has.

 Berry has scored something like seven goals in ten career games against Ohio State. It was, unfortunately, an accurate description.

I do. They seemed to have things much more together tonight. Big comeback win in a hostile environment like that, it'll give them some confidence at the very least. Believing is half the battle.

Yeah, it hasn't been pretty for the Badgers. I think the first time the Bucks will make a BTN appearance this season is the beginning of December when they travel to Michigan. December 5th, I think.

Sorry about that. We're trying out a new format this year where I just do the previews and quick recaps after the games. UNO beat the Buckeye guys 4-1 tonight and the Buckeye ladies defeated Minnesota State 3-1. My recaps are here: http://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-hockey/2014/11/43180/good-effort-not-enough-in-loss-to-omaha

Previously the ladies swept Bemidji and split their series against St. Cloud.

Minnesota does look like the Big Ten favorite at this point. The Buckeyes have yet to show any indication they can have the kind of sustained success necessary to capture a regular season title. The season is really young, though. OSU won't get into the meat of their conference schedule until January. I'd say the Bucks are a longshot for the B1G championship this season. (The regular season one. Anything can happen in the conference tournament.) 

The ladies are not likely to finish atop the WCHA. The conference is stacked with elite teams. (WCHA teams usually take four of the top-10 spots in the national rankings.) The lady Bucks have shown improvement this season but not enough to expect them to contend with for a title with Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, etc.
