Witt shoots to make hockey fun again at New Hampshire:

I think the academics speaks for itself, Witt said. We’ve had a lot of kids be very successful through academics here, very successful careers, and I think that’s the most important thing. Of course, the campus is absolutely gorgeous. I think the thing that really sticks out about UNH is the people. It’s a really close-knit community, where people care about hockey, they care about each other, they care about UNH athletics, and they care about UNH as a whole. I think that makes it really unique in a lot of ways, where you have the support of the community for a women’s sport.

I agree with your sentiment but made a slight adjustment to your post. This thread jumped the shark a long time ago. In fact, after reading the story about Andrew Silsby in Fosters the other I checked out this thread. Figured for sure one of the haters on here would find a negative and blame it on the AD.

For the uninformed, Silsby is a 13 yr. old kid from our town who was "adopted" by the UNH Men's Hockey team last year, in conjunction with an organization named Friends of Jaclyn, which is a national organization that provides "love, support and friendship" to children living with brain tumors. Kids like Andrew are "adopted" by various college sports teams across the country. In UNH's case, the Men's Hockey team (through efforts headed up by the family of a recently graduated player) reached out to Andrew's family.


I'm not sure how anyone could be "blamed" for something like this ... but certainly Coach Umile, his staff, his players (this year and last year) and their families ALL deserve a ton of credit for their involvement and commitment to this very worthy cause.

So, how were BS35+1's new lights? Or, was that earlier in the season?

It's like a kid with a new toy. It seems that they are trying to make excuses to use the lights. There is not a single game at the traditional noon start this year, with 12:30 being the earliest. There are no consistent kickoffs.

In fact, I haven't tailgated this year due to this, because the later games conflict with my buddy's soccer games.

How has it affected tailgate times? They used to consistently let us on the field at about 7:30 for a noon game. Silly me for hoping UNH would extend tailgating for later games, because I noted for the Darty game that nobody was on Boulder around noon.

Agreed. No disrespect at all to hockey, but there seems to be quite a momentum shift behind football right now.

Think about it... current students likely don't remember the Patriots ever being bad, with Belichick's first year being the worst. They grew up with football.
