I think he gets a little special treatment since he is from GR (Lucia's hometown). Hope this kid can figure it out before it is too late.

Tyler Hirsch is not from Grand Rapids, but yes, Don Lucia is. Tyler played his high school/prep hockey in Fairbault at Shattuck-St. Mary's School.

I hope he gets things turned around as well. A great talent on the bench.

Anyone got the inside scoop on why Hirsch was kicked off the Gophers hockey team? What a waste, and a shame, for him and the team.

probably got bad grades and skipped practice again confused.gif

At least the gophers can now move on and not have to worry about whether or not he is able to play.

The college career of mercurial Minnesota forward Tyler Hirsch came to an end Saturday as the senior was dismissed from the team.

"Tyler Hirsch's hockey career at the University of Minnesota has come to an end," Gopher head coach Don Lucia said in a statement released prior to the team's 5-2 win against Ferris State Saturday in the Dodge Holiday Classic championship game at Mariucci Arena. "This is a private and confidential matter between Tyler and the coaching staff."

After sitting out the entire 2005-06 season for personal reasons, Hirsch returned to the Gophers lineup for his senior year and was off to a great start, with four goals and 18 assists in 15 games, but his misdeeds kept him in Lucia's doghouse. Hirsch was benched for the season-opener against Maine for showing up late to a team meeting, missed two games in November for lackluster efforts in practice, and sat for the team's series against Minnesota State earlier this month because of academic issues.

Rumors of Hirsch's demise first surfaced Friday after the Gophers' 3-1 win against Alabama-Huntsville, a game in which Hirsch – who was clearly going through the motions – was benched for the third period.

Hirsch's most publicized incident occurred following a Minnesota loss to Colorado College in the 2005 WCHA Final Five when he skated from center ice at full speed into one of the nets, knocking it into the end boards. He missed the next three games, returning to the lineup for the Gophers' loss to North Dakota in the Frozen Four in Columbus

Inside scoop: Bad grades, bad attitude, poor work ethic. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink!

I hope the Gophers win the national title this year even more now. Someday when he is all grown up (which should have been 4 years ago), he will look back at how stupid he was and how much of a mistake he made. It will hit him after he says for the 10,000th time, “would you like fries with that?” and “would you like to super-size that for only $.50 more?”

Just like Louie Anderson in Coming to America: “Now I’m washing lettuce… But soon I’ll be on fries… and that’s when the big bucks begin.”

Good luck to ya Tyler!

The kid has some deep emotional issues. I don't know if he's bi-polar or simply depressed but he is a great talent. I hope it works out for Tyler. I think the coaching staff went as far as they could with him.

I was thinking the same thing about the mental issue. Bad grades are a nice cover up though. smirk.gif A little mixed up in the head and the incident where he pretended he was a puck proves that. Kinda weird....

I believe this to be a true statement and it is unfortunate for him and his family... not to mention his teammates. frown.gif

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.
    • Wanderer
      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.
