    Nice work once again. You wrote, “The two wins also increase BGSU’s win total on the season by 50 percent.”

    Now Bowling Green came into the series with 8 wins. And they won two more. That’s a 25% increase. Now they had 4 conference wins. But these weren’t conference games. So they increased their conference win total by 0%. Never let the facts stand in the way of a good story.

      To Davy83…..brutal….just brutal!!! LMAO on your post.

      It was a brainfart/typo — seriously. One of those things where you’re thinking one thing and type another. The four wins in the opening is an outright typo. In proofreading, I didn’t catch either.

      Mea culpa, and thanks for commenting so that I could change it.

      And I think it’s pretty clear that I’m looking at total wins at this point, even with the numbers errors, but please don’t let context get in the way of a good putdown. 😉

    I hope you get your facts straight before piping off about the Comely/Fan issue. Both parties were/are at fault. I know how much you like Comely, so I hope that doesn’t blind you to the facts, like it did with the Macmillan/Comely incident a few years back.

    Sorry – I don’t see how both parties are at fault in the Comley incident. An elderly judge witnesses a coach melt down at the end of the game, screaming at the refs over a heartbreak OT goal that he challanged, and then tells him that whining about and challanging every goal is beneath him (Comely). And then Comely goes after the judge and ends up in a shoving match with a young woman.

    Sorry – coaches don’t get to hit opposing fans, even ones who yell at them. Men don’t get to hit women…ever.

    And before you ask – yes, I was there.

      I agree with you. I was there as well. I didn’t see the whole incident though. My only point of contention with what you are saying is that Judge Downes could have said nothing at all. That is no excuse for Comely to lose it like he did, and there is never an excuse to put your hands on a female. Comely lost his mind, it’s just that simple. However, Judge Downes could have made the choice to not open his mouth. So he has to take a small percentage of the blame for putting himself in the situation to begin with. I like Judge Downes. He is a huge hockey supporter, a good judge, and just a nice guy. He could have made a better choice by not saying anything to Comely; after all we had already won the game. Just my opinion though.
