HOW CAN I NOT MAKE A THREAD?!?!

Michigan Tech, perennial cellar dweller, hasn't been to the tournament since 1981, hasn't had a home conference playoff game since 1993, relegated to the new WCHA with all the scraps of the B1G and NCHC realignment to flounder, is the undefeated #1 team in the country.

They're 10-0! Since 1996 they havent won 10 games in a season 12 times! To say I'm excited is an understatement.

And how they're winning! On the road at the defending conference champ, winning with defense, allowing one goal on the weekend. At home against Michigan, putting up 10 goals. Fighting through being outshot and outplayed at Bemidji to find a way to win, all the while holding strong on D. Its a new day in Houghton.

Remember the B1G money-grab that was going to ruin college hockey? Minnesota is pretty good, Penn State is on the rise, and the rest of them suck! Absolutely suck! Wisconsin hasn't even won a game!

Meanwhile, Arizona State has just announced they're adding hockey! Another southern, geographically isolated school. Where will they end up? Will this pull in other Pac-12 schools? Will North Dakota and Denver decide they are the only two like-minded schools out there and just play each other 34 times a year? Time will tell!

This is a fun year! And remember, GO HUSKIES!

My old boss Greg, will be Super Duper Happy.

I hope the thread at least gets nibbles through the year.

It's early yet to take much stock. The Q is way down the list and they have proved surprising the last few years..

Any votes for my son Nolan LaPorte would be greatly appreciated. He may not be the top scorer in the country but he is number 3 in penalty minutes and that is what probably really matters with the ADV crowd.
Thanks boys

How is BC, AFA and Denver doing?

Can I expect to see them as three of the Frozen Four?
