Some thoughts...

    No game week post this week, but I figured that I'd point out what I saw on BTN+ on Friday (and saw off-and-on on Twitter on Saturday):

    1. Isaiah Saville has been wonderful in his outings so far, but Saturday was his best night by far. With the number of penalties on the Mavs, including some 5-on-3s, you'd think THE Ohio State would have many, many more goals, but Saville was a brick wall, only allowing 1 goal out of 38 SOGs. While I don't think the Friday-Saturday rotations are done quite yet (would be nice to give Roden some more ice time), look for Saville to be the permanent starter when conference play starts mid-November.
    2. Speaking of penalties, that continues to be an area where the Mavericks can improve on. Yes, one or two (or a bunch) of calls made by the B1G officials were (very) questionable, but UNO needs to find a way to maintain discipline on the ice, a point of emphasis I'm sure will be worked on during the bye week.
    3. That said, the Mavs responded admirably to the adversity by keeping their head up and playing on, even on the multiple 5-on-3s on Saturday. This young team keeps impressing each and every day, and the differences between last year and this year are striking.

    That's all for now. Game week posts return next week for the trip up north. Keep living the #nonyikes life.

    Still have not seen the Jones penalty from Saturday. Doubt we ever will. Makes me long for the days of the Mike Kemp Show.

    I thought the Sullivan penalty was questionable. To be honest, the kneeing rule is constantly (and consistently) being misapplied. The art of the hip check is vinishing (if not already gone). I had no call on Sullivan.

    However, Stewart should've gotten the gate for his hit. Clearly from behind. Clearly a dangerous hit. Honestly, I think the officials overthought the situation: having already kicked two Mavericks out - one controversially - I think he bailed on the third, and got it all wrong.

    Saville has been great. Aside from the save on Luczynski, he hasn't had to make highlight reel saves. But that is his style. He is calm, cool, collected. Not flashy. Let's be honest: that second period save was a desperation effort... and lucky. Add Saville and his demeanor to the #nonyikes notes.

    When Chris and Charley (and other names that are escaping me after all these years) recorded the Coach Kemp Show at Indigo Joe's each week it was a valuable resource for fans (there was also an anniversary panel filmed at UNO that Bridget participated in — we need that content online for all the new-to-UNO fans out there). 

    I'm with you on the Sullivan penalty. I still haven't seen a clear replay, but to me it looked like he merely got tangled up with the OSU player.

    I believe I have most (if not all) of the archive from the Mike Kemp Show.

    I also might have some game films of games from that same era.

    It would be really cool if you started a YouTube channel and posted those (no pressure at all). 

    There are so many new fans who have only followed the program the past decade or so. 

    I really got a lot out of those shows. It is hard to gain insights into a coach's mindset and philosophy unless you get a chance to hear them speak.

    The ability to pull up those videos of Coach Kemp and Terry Leahy on TKN back in the day was incredibly helpful when discussing the team online. 

    I think historical context is important for a program, and the video of those shows captured one of my favorite eras in UNO Hockey history. :-)

    Not sure I have the means to do that. Might need a nerd's help. But willing.

    Chris, years ago you made me discs of the show, which I still have. I don’t know who has legal rights as far as posting them anywhere, and I don’t want to get anyone in trouble  

    Of course I would need to find them. Most computers losing their built in CD/DVD made me box a lot of my music and videos up.

    I am the legal rights holder of the Mike Kemp Show (as far as the UNO-TV/TKN production goes).
