I seriously have never heard of them. Is hockey their only good sport? I didn't realize they were good.
Basically. One of my former teammates goes there and he was our best player when I was in high school and he doesn't even play.

I guarantee you once the games go on to Television, this thread will be a lot busier. Last year we filled up two threads on two games. I remember how nuts the Wisconsin/BC game was, that was a great game.
I think I had a post or two in that thread, and I don't even follow hockey.

WMU went to Ohio State last night to play back to back nights there. OSU was up 4-2 and WMU came back to win 8-5 including scoring 6 of the final 7 goals in the game. Nuts.

I'll keep you all updated on Niagara, since they might be CHA's rep in the NCAA Tournament.

Bemidji State has been picked to win it all, but only because NU's goalie situation was up in the air between junior Scott Mollison and soph Juliano Pagliero. Pags has stepped up big so far this season, and the team is playing well behind their 2 stars--Les Reaney and Ted Cook--also sophomores.

Oh, and they just tied Ohio State tonight, so they went down to Columbus and took 3 of a possible 4 points.

A step in the right direction.

I just looked some things up Bemidji has shit the bed this year (0-3-1, 0-1-1 after last weekend's series with Niagara). Niagara won last Friday and played to a 2-2 tie on Saturday.

Niagara is 4-5-1 right now, but they gave themselves a tough non-conference schedule. They lost their opener to (ranked) Clarkson, as well as a beatdown from (then-ranked) Nebraska-Omaha, and a loss to UMass-Lowell in the consolation game of the N-O tournament.

...And they have back-to-back series at Denver and against Quinnipiac in January. Yikes.

Wow. Bemidji is 3-4-1, that's pretty bad considering they were predicted to go all the way hahaha

They just got a proposal approved to start building a new, state of the art arena sometime soon. So that should help. They're a solid program, despite the early struggles (which can get turned around come conference play). I fully expect them to rebound by December.

The guy who funded Niagara's hockey complex (something Dwyer-hence Dwyer Arena) is considering dropping another $2 million to improve the facility, because when NU got shut down from joining the bigger conferences, they cited the arena as the major reason why.

So they want to put in new seats (they have aluminum stadium chairs right now), some VIP boxes, and a good sound system, as well as a possibly a new scoreboard, and seating behind the one end of the rink (currently there's only seating on one side of the rink)

Yeah, definitely. I'm grateful that WMU was in the CCHA before that whole up-to-date-rink thing became so big because WMU's rink, though not as bad as Ferris State (which looks like a public rink...) is pretty... lackluster.

That's WMU's rink.

Dwyer's foyer


View from the stands side of the rink

Supposedly they already added plastic seats in place of the aluminum ones (after the 04-05 season), so their next phase of expansion would be to add seats behind the net.

I haven't been to a game there in awhile, because it was such a shitty place to watch hockey.
