Cosnidering everything other than the announcing is done by undergrads, I have always been thoroughly impressed with the SCSU broadcasts. We are very lucky in that regard. The video quality and the camera work has been second to none for the last season or two.

I think Jim Rich does a really good job as did Rob (can't remember his last name) that preceeded him. The color guys, be it one of the Parrish boys or someone else, could stand to improve, but across any and all major sports non-national color analysts tend to be former players/homers so that doesn't really bother me much.

I am out of the country and can't watch so I can't comment on the game last night other than to say I hope for a similar result. And also no injuries. Get em tonight boys.

Then there isn't a professional in college hockey. BTW listening to UNO's feed was very tough as the homerism was through the roof. But I listened because of the same reason you did. My local feed was too far ahead.

You have to accept homer announcers. To be honest I don't find Jim Rich to be that much of a homer.

That's surprising...Terry Leahy is typically even keel and the play-by-play guy Ahlers is usually fairly even in his announcing. I didn't listen last night so I don't know how it compares to how they usually call it. Leahy has been doing color since the Mavs began in the late 90s and Ahlers is the Assistant Athletic Director for Communications. They are usually fairly unbiased.

For the SCSU broadcast being student run, they do a really good job. I've seen some other student run broadcasts and they were bad. Quinnipiac stands out for example.

The actual broadcast itself rivals a lot of professional feeds. The pre-game opening and the camera work, not to mention the intermission stuff is really top notch. I was extremely impressed.

Announcers are always unbiased when they're in favor of the team we support.

True, but you can usually pick up on the language throughout the game. Using baseball as an example, there is a big difference between Hawk Harrelson from the White Sox and Gladden from the Twins. At times, I think Gladden is rooting against the Twins when he calls a game. It's as if he gets more excited when the other team scores a run, etc.

Gladden's tough on the teams he likes. During the 1991 World Series run, he cold cocked his teammate (forget which) for not legging out a ground ball that most would consider a sure out because the chance existed that there could've been an error that got him to second base. Gladden being tough on the Twins is his way of showing support - he wants to be on the field helping the team improve its play.

It appears as though Austin Ortega has a severe allergy reaction and will not be playing tonight. That's just fantastic.

I'm getting an awfully bad time about this. All you guys know I am fundamentally right about the whole Thompson/Weninger thing.

See the thing is..we don't care.
Thompson isn't why you lost and so far Weninger isn't why you are winning.
And Blais isn't a bad coach because he plays Thompson...but you have it stuck into your head so you are beating it to death and rightly getting ripped for it.

So, if Reijola was in goal you'd have nothing to say about that?

Because he is the functional equivalent of Kirk Thompson.

If you were a UNO fan you'd seriously be happy to see Thompson out there? Really?

And, I certainly did not call Dean Blais a bad coach. The man's won two titles. By definition, he can't be.

That doesn't mean I can't call him out for doing crazy sh*t.

Oh, by the way, UNO is now up 2-0. The Mavs are undefeated when scoring the first two goals this season.

We've won with Reijola in net and looked just fine.
The point...which you keep missing...is Thompson is not why you lost and Weninger is not why you are winning.
Thompson was not responsible for your defense running around and Weninger is not responsible for our inability to complete passes or cover tonight.
Your goalies have exactly ZERO to do with how these games have played out.

I'm not trying to pick a fight, by the way.

Hell, I appreciate you coming down and introducing yourself to me last season, the last time UNO was there. I did not see the game last night nor am I seeing the game tonight.

Nevertheless, that does not change my anger about Thompson being in goal last night. I make no claim about whether it had a meaningful impact on the game last night.

St. Cloud State may very well be the best team in the country. Seriously. They have a better resume', so far, than UNO does. Nothing I have had to say is an indictment of SCSU in any way, shape, or form. I'm mad at US, not you.

Worst we've looked all year.
Flush it and move on.

This one is over...we are doing this without two of the best players in the country. Feel better about this weekend now.

Two UNO players with their first collegiate goals in this game, to boot. Galt & Morelli.

Love the color guy: "we're only down four, come on guys you can do this."
