So this is our 24th straight seasons making the CCHA finals. Do we all realize how incredibly impressive that is?
The first CCHA championship happened in 1972, when OSU won, and this should be championship 42.
Michigan has been in 57% of ALL of the CCHA championships that will ever happen. Consecutively.
Michigan joined the CCHA with State, Tech, and Notre Dame back in the 81-82 season, so we've been around for just 32 possible championships. So 75% of the championships that we were even eleigble to play in, we were there. Consecutively.
IMHO, that's an amazing streak.
There's no way we will reach State's 11 Championships- and that's quite amazing- but our current 9 is 22% of all CCHA championships. All of them in the last 23 seasons (or a rate of 39% of the time we go to the Joe, we win).
Really makes you think why there's only one Michigan player on all CCHA team when our part of it is so significant. And it makes one appreciate what we have in Ann Arbor. Since every single one of the stats that I'm so impressed about has happened under Red. All in the last 24 years.
