Does Michigan have a satellite campus in Cincinnati? That’s the only thing that makes sense here. Time was winding down and it looked like Thursday night’s matchup was heading to OT. All the Wolverines had to do was not turnover the puck and give up a breakaway chance to Notre Dame as the final seconds ticked away. So what did they do? They did exactly what I’d expect out of any Cincinnati team. They blew it. They gave up the winning goal with 4ish seconds left. For all of you hockey novices out there, that’s usually not enough time to score a goal. In fact, some might say you’re up Shit Creek if that happens. As an expert, I can assure you it’s not a good situation to be in. Bad, actually. What I’m saying is you don’t wanna be in the position Michigan was in. I think you get the point.
It looks like we’re getting a Minnesota-Duluth vs. Notre Dame Frozen Four Final, which is kinda a bummer for selfish reasons. I’m a sucker for college hockey teams that have the same helmet as their football team. Three out of the four teams in this year’s Frozen Four fit that category. Stupid Duluth has the same color and logo as the football team on their buckets, but it doesn’t look like a football helmet, which means I can’t root for them. I’m sorry, but those are the rules. Go Irish. At least Brian Kelly has nothing to do with their hockey team, and probably doesn’t even know they exist.
