Wolverines Make the Frozen Four!

Wolverines Advance

You can take the 'M' off the ice, you can take away our home lockeroom, but you can't take away our fans. On Saturday night, in front of a raucous crowd at a neutral looking Yost Ice arena, the Wolverines showed everyone what they're made of. Jed Ortmeyer's goal with 1:21 left to play in the 3rd period iced it for the Wolverines, who advance to the Frozen Four yet again. They will meet Minnesota for the frozen version of the Little brown Jug on April 4th, with the championship game being played on April 6th. Games will be televised nationally on ESPN and ESPN2...so I see no reason why we shouldn't use this as an excuse to tailgate, drink, and/or take to South U in celebration.

Wasn't Sparty In Our Bracket? Where's Sparty?

Sparty? They're at home. They've been home since early Friday evening after they got blanked 2-0 in the afternoon game against Colorado College. Ron Mason has no cup, no Frozen Four, and can happily settle in to his job as the Michigan State Athletic director. His first order of business? Hire another coach that sucks.
