The weekend that was in Club Life.
Michigan State hosted an off campus game on a field that was incorrectly lined and the refs didn’t show up on time resulting in the game being delayed several hours. When the refs did show up, the Spartans surrendered 48 shots. The previously ranked #1 team in the country (Colorado) took those 48 shots and lost 7-6.
The next day, MSU took CSU to double overtime and lost 9-8. Despite a 3-5 overall record, the win over CU and the quality loss to CSU will turbo boost the Spartans in the polls.
Or, will it? Davenport went right out and beat CSU on Sunday.
Illinois O For Spring Break
Three losses to LSA competition (Oklahoma, Texas State, and Southern Methodist) might result in the LSA champ capturing the 15th seed over the GRLC champ. Unless Indiana wins out including a regular season finale against Michigan State.
Texas (2-7) could win their next three games (against LSA) competition to improve to 5-7, then lose to Northeastern, then win their three game conference tournament to finish 8-8. What would the tournament committee do with an 8-8 Texas team? If Illinois won the GRLC, Texas would surely get the 15th seed.
Illinois losing to Oklahoma is a shocking and disappointing result for a team that was in the national tournament in 2012 and a goal away from the big dance in 2011. Things happen very quickly in the MCLA. Just ask Florida and…
How bad is at Oregon?
In this 1:45 long highlight tape, the Ducks managed two goals, only one of which was on camera. Oregon is 1-7. Their lone win on the season was against 0-5 Washington State. Current head coach, Justin Eckenroad, a 2011 alum, must be beside himself.
RIP Santa Baraba
The Gauchos lost their 10th and 11th game of the season last Monday and Wednesday to Dominican and Sonoma State respectively.
