Went to watch MNF with a friend who is a big time Michigan Tech fan last night. Both of us are exiled far from College Hockey. Funny thing is, do to you guys, I knew more what was happening with the WCHA to NCHA than he did.

Do you think M-Tech would be a viable add? Or is it to small of arena? Other issues why they didn't take them already?

What do you think of Big10 hockey now as its own league?

I think it was a shitty moneygrab by big schools sick of traveling to Alaska who wanted to schedule more home games at the expense of smaller markets. MN is trying to book some mid-season tournaments, and there will be sort of a local version of a beanpot, but I don't think we'll know for 3-5 years whether it was good or bad.

The way I figure, it's a tough spot to get to, a small arena (although recent years have seen significant investment in the team / facility), and the team has been down for a long time. For a while now tech has been just who you want if you need to get your team straightened out. Not exactly high end hockey conference material, even though there is a lot of history there. Last year was a bit of a flash with Pearson at the helm, and I'm hoping for continued success.

Unfortunately, with the WCHA being relegated to secondary conference standing, I think recruiting may be hurt, making that success hard to continue. Time will tell. Tech has a good rep as an engineering school and many of the sports players are there for it just as much as a sport. I guess we'll just have a nerdy hockey team

There is still one more year of the WCHA and the CCHA as we know it. Also, I am pretty sure that the Alaskan teams must pay for all of the travel expenses of the visiting teams.
Not looking forward to the added travel next year as I chase my kid around to watch the games in person.

ITS BACK!

Exhibition vs. Brock University @ Houghton, 6-2 win for Tech

Freshman Alex Petan with a hat trick in first NCAA game

Gearing up for a home and home with LSSU next week; sounds as though tech has three legitimate choices at goalie so hopefully that will be sorted out soon

No sound in this one

College hockey at the Resch Center in Green Bay. Northern Michigan vs Wisconsin. October 12th and 13th. Great place to watch a game, not a bad seat in the house.

Tech splits the home and home in the battle of faded dynasties with Lake Superior State. Loss at the Soo 4-2 Thursday and an 8-4 win in Houghton Saturday night



Bring on the Gophers for probably the last time for a while in Houghton

CC 6
AFA 2 F

Air Force tied both nights last week vs the Alaska schools. That's disappointing for them because now they have to be winless as they approach Denver Sat.

CC's Andrew Hamburg let loose with a natural hat trick in the second period and added a 4th goal in the 3rd. Sometimes you can only hope to contain these kids. Good job Tigers. 3-0 to start the season.

Thanks for the clips!

Some dodgy defensive zone coverage by the GOphs, and that one turnover at the blueline that you just can't let happen... Exhibition this weekend against US U-18, then back at it.
