2008-09 schedule released

Remember last season, when the Mavericks played nine of their first 10 games on the road? That's not going to happen this year. MSU's schedule was released on Tuesday.

The Mavericks will play six of their first 10 games in Mankato, including their first two series -- Oct. 10-11 vs. Bemidji State and Oct. 17-18 vs. North Dakota. After that, MSU will play Minnesota in a home-and-home series, although the Mavericks' home game will be played at Xcel Energy Center as part of a WCHA doubleheader (St. Cloud and Duluth will play the early game on Nov. 1).

The Gophers will play in Mankato on Jan. 30.

MSU will not play Duluth or Michigan Tech at home and will not travel to Denver or Wisconsin. The Mavericks will also host Nebraska-Omaha and play nonconference road games at Bowling Green, Princeton and Omaha.

Another year with no home Minnesota game? If I was a corporate sponser, I'd dump my blue line tickets in a heartbeat.

This program is so mismanaged by Kevin making stupid decision after stupid decision, year after year. If I did half as poor of a job as he did I would have been fired years ago but not at MSU where mediocrity is king.

I don't know if this is true or not but was told tickets for the MSU "HOME" game in St. Paul are not included in the season ticket package. What a joke, no wonder this program can't grow it's fan base. The biggest game of the year and it's played 90 miles away?!? Busiman is a complete clown. He couldn't run a D-III program. Well, he could probably run it into the ground like he's done here.
