Black Friday?

Friday Dec 18 Junior Defenseman Ryan Turek was dismissed for failure to meet expectations. The date coincided with the day Ingham County Prosecutor, Stuart Dunnings III, was expected to file charges in the Oct 18 MSU hockey/football fight. This, along with the fact that falling to meet expectations would result in the dismissal of several players, has fueled speculations that Turek will face charges. Good luck Ryan, your presence will be missed.

Also on Friday, freshman forward Mike Merrifield left to join the Green Bay Gamblers of the USHL. Merrifield hadn't had a point in any of his 6 starts. Coach Comley stated it would give him a chance to play 30 games over the second half and work on his physical strength. He's expected to return to Michigan State next season.

I'm officially calling this a "rebuilding year."
