Are you guys saying God wills that some people go to hell?

Yes, and it makes sense if you make the distinction (that INPEFESS pointed out) between His desire and His will.  His desire is that all go to Heaven.  His desire is often used synonymously (in discourse) with His will, but this is not so.  God's will is what He actively influences to happen, or passively allows to happen.  He allows (passive will) us to make our own choices and go to Hell, and he actively sends those unworthy to the hot place.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
