  • SPORTS MOMENT: I have a few, but being one of the small group of Buckeye fans at the CCHA Super 6 in 2004 when the Bucks won 3 games in 3 days to win the championship. The final game against Michigan was the best game ive seen an OSU team play in the many years I've followed the program.

I think its several things. Former coach John Markell could recruit but couldn't develop players. Major Juniors is definitely a draw for kids, but it doesn't seem to hurt a lot of the elite programs in the country. Some of the things the OSU program deals with that the Minnesotas, Wisconsins, North Dakotas and Michigans of the world don't are a building thats 80% empty on a nightly basis, having to get dressed and take a bus to the little rink to practice, and getting kicked out of your home rink for the conference playoffs due to High School Wrestling.

Still the loudest I've heard the stadium.

I'd be curious to see, but will never happen since black isn't a school color. Thats the reason the hockey team had to go from black alternate jerseys to grey ones in the early 2000's

Comment 14 Feb 2014

With the new facility they built and the money that they are willing to put into the program, there is no reason for Penn St not to develop a strong program quickly, as much as it pains me to say that.

Has anything been said or even rumored about the Gedig and Dalrymple injuries? Also, when do the jerseys in the MS paints get the update to the current style?

Comment 31 Jan 2014

I won't worry about the Gedig / Dalrymple situation until the lines get released on twitter and I see a 6 in one of the d-pairs.

South stands were taken down after football season to allow use of the track, which was still there up till '99. they weren't so much roll away as they were like a big scaffolding.

I had started to wonder if the writing was on the wall about Olson leaving when I saw Tomkins in net Friday night. I was coming back from Purdue on Saturday and only made it for the 3rd period but when I saw him in again I remember thinking to myself that he might be gone by next weekend, then low and behold I saw the release Sunday. Makes me harken back to the late 90's - early 00's when it seemed like 1 or 2 midseason defections were the norm. Any word on someone being brought up from the club team to be the 3rd tender?

Comment 01 Nov 2013

I'm interested to see how the goaltending situation starts to take shape. Olson started on Tuesday and lasted about 3 minutes before being yanked after 2 quick goals. His post to post movement looked really slow, although he wasn't really helped by his D. Tomkins looked good for the rest of the game. I'm kind of assuming that they will split the weekend. Should be interesting.

Not to sound negative, but is there anyone left in the nation that isn't "aware" at this point? It would seem to me like making an actual donation to the Speilman Foundation or legitimate cancer charity would be much more effective than everything taking on a pink hue for a month.

As far as Tomkins goes, I was at BG on Tuesday and after the 2nd goal you could see all of his confidence leave him. Their 3rd goal was odd ad the whistle blew before the puck crossed but was upheld after the review. Would love to hear the explanation. Their 4th goal came from the boards on a pretty poor angle.  Didn't see what happened to Tanner Fritz, but he looked to be moving fine as he went off. I assumed at the time it was an equipment issue but that proved not to be the case. Another bright spot so far has been the play of Darik Angeli, who appears to be playing on another level as compared to the 4th line role Oz had him for most of last season.

I will take to my grave the belief that if Justin Zwick never gets hurt at Iowa in 2004, forcing Tressel to play Troy Smith, that he sticks with Zwick and Troy transfers at the end of the season. The only reason Troy was ever put in the game was the injury to Zwick, who had been bad up to that point in the season.
