Re: NCAA hockey 2019-20 season

I admittedly don't follow Div III hockey a ton, but usually check to see what happens in the post-season. I could be wrong but it seems that more often than not teams from the west are vastly outnumbered by those from the east. If that observation is mostly correct what are the general reasons? Are...

Re: NCAA hockey 2019-20 season

With this kind of thing happening, I wonder what will happen with the NCAA tournaments.

Re: B1G 1st Round vs Notre Dame

I'm glad it wasn't just me thinking these officials have been awful this weekend. For some reason, the refs were allowing ND to play Tackle Hockey for a stretch there. In one period about a minute or so, two full bear hugs and an outright tackle went un-called. Add in the stick to the face that did...

Hill-Murray wins with a shot on goal...not sure how that went in.
I'm sure since you wrote this, you saw the replay, but for anyone that didn't the original shot didn't go in, the guy at the top of the crease took a swipe at knocked it past the defender that had fallen back to assist the goalie.

Re: B1G 1st Round vs Notre Dame

Actually.... I just heard that they did not include the option at this time as to not confuse it with tickets for THIS season since the renewal came out so early. They will be adding it back in after the season is over. That's a good thing, I'd say. Glad I'm waiting, makes it easier to do the opt-i...

Re: B1G 1st Round vs Notre Dame

They are going to have the same problem next year as they did not include them for those of us re upping for next year. But did you have the option to add them? Before this year yes, for 2020-21 no. I honestly think they were so excited that they lowered the price that they forgot about adding them...

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

How come everybody settles except Dish? Because they want to keep your prices low!!! :biggrin2: Yet never seem to drop prices when they lose channels. The fact that HBO has been off of Dish since November of 2018 pretty much tells you all you need to know about Dish. They can't afford to drop price...

Re: B1G 1st Round vs Notre Dame

They weren't "Included" in the season tickets, but you had the option to pre-order them if you wanted (which I did). In the past (WCHA days), I know people complained that they were "forced" to buy playoff tickets (not many, but there were some), but after last season, they needed to do something to...

Re: B1G 1st Round vs Notre Dame

In the right place.... He put it in the Ticket area of GPL. I completely understand why you have a ticket area, but for those of us who don't go through the portal (I just don't like the format, personal preference) the ticket area is off the bottom of my screen unless I scroll down. Wouldn't matte...
