Alumni weekend? I didn't get the memo. Is that what every other school in the nation calls Homecoming?

I missed that memo too. Maybe since they got rid of Homecoming, they need another weekend to bring back alumni.

Now, with Celebrate!, which is exactly like Homecoming, but NOT Homecoming, because it's called something different... so they had to make it different by not making it about alumni? No idea, the whole thing is so stupid. But no Homecoming, Homecoming bad! BAD!! Between that and the stupid new dog head logo...

Its not like there was ever homecoming for hockey anyway.
There has never been a homecoming hockey gane. Its a football thing and if there was a home game for hockey, it was a coincidence.

My roommate brought a drum into the dog pound for homecoming in 2000 against Bemidji back in the Brittney Spears and Mark O Meara cardboard cutout days, and the flag lap after every goal. I even went to my one and only Huskie football game that day.

Loving Robbie Jackson on the top line!

We'll see this weekend if it was just a case of Alaska being Alaska or if he's the next great Goalscorer :)

13 hrs 36 min till puck drop!

Interesting moving Murray over to the right side and Newell and Russell clicked previously too.
The lineup looks great. I really like the D pairings.
A couple more right handers and all our lines would look stellar, don't get me wrong they already do. ;) We really have depth this year and a lot of flexibility.

Mankato is the real deal so this should be a great weekend series. I can't wait.

They would predict a split, when's the last time we lost to Mankato State? They've been "good" for a while. It's not that I don't respect the WCHA champion it's that I don't respect a conference who's champion could ever be Mankato State.

2011-12
The last time we lost to Mankato was 11/11/11 4-2.
Since then we won 3-2 11/12.

2012-13
We swept both games 10/26 and 10/27/12 by scores of 5-1 each night. I remember because Ben Hanowski had 2 goals in the first game and then Eriah Hayes followed him into the corner with a cheap late hit against the glass and Ben was out with a concussion for a while after that.

2013-14
One game in the North Star College Cup we won 6-4.
We didn't play them last year.

You take the top 6 teams out of the WCHA, and now Mankato and Tech are good! What a coincidence.

And they even paid a consulting firm to "re-brand" homecoming. What a bunch of bull poopy.
