I'm at the Notre Dame-Michigan State game at the coliseum, and you guys think IHL refs make too many calls? College refs call EVERYTHING. Power play after power play.

The players don't handle the puck as well so there's more opportunity for hitting because they don't move it as well. They aren't as skilled with their feet catching passes, either. It's a different kind of game.
There's maybe 2,500 fans here. Not as big a crowd as a Komets' exhibition game. Oh, and the music is pretty much the exact same thing you'd hear at Kom
