It would have been a shock if it didn't.

I must have missed that tweet when running back and forth to Starbucks.

Yeah, I was surprised it wasn't here already.

I hope this isn’t in reference to my Post. I wasn’t saying the League is now stacking the deck in Q’s favor. Just the opposite. With so many League teams now able to advance further in the Dance there’s no need to favor any one Team.

I get your point... I hadn't thought about it that way before and it's an excellent observation.

I picked up a ticket for SLU at noon on Tuesday and the box office rep said they were waiting on word whether or not Clarkson was returning any unsold tickets.

Good News . . . Bad News . . .

With Minnesota State's win today over Minnesota in the consolation of the North Star College Cup, it assures RPI of going into next week at #14 in PWR. So for the first time in a few years we will be in Moy's Bracketology discussion this late in the season. The bad news is that we would likely be paired with North Dakota probably in Cincinnati. But then again revenge would be sweet.

Wrong Again!

I failed to notice that Minnesota, despite its putrid OOC record, is actually tied with Michigan for first in the B10 conference (8-2-0 vs. 7-1-2). And since conference wins is the tie-break, Minnesota gets the nod as the current leader. Unfortunately that bumps out a third team (#13) from the field as the AHA, WCHA and B10 all have their 'conference champions' as auto-qualifiers. Thus Rensselaer is the bubble team once more. Dang. :mad:

I guess it could be a lot worse - it isn't selection Sunday.

While I suppose it's true that Minnesota is currently #1 in the B1G standings, I think it's clear that Minnesota being the actual champion come tourney time would be an upset. As WaP said in today's bracketology, "any team that wins their conference tournament that wouldn't have otherwise been in the tournament, that's considered an upset."

As an aside, I thought it was a little odd that B1G goes to conference wins before head-to-head results for the tiebreaker. I checked, and the B1G is actually the only league that does wins before head-to-head win percentage (though the NCHC skips head-to-head results in situations where the tied teams don't have an equal number of home and away games).

Unfortunately, the way things stand, even if we sweep this coming weekend, our PWR will not improve unless those around us lose. In fact, if Dartmouth and Cornell both sweep they will both jump us regardless of our results. We will have trouble holding our position with anything less than 6-2-0 going down the stretch. This week was probably our best shot at "Bracketology." We have little upside going forward but lots of downside - will need lots of help from other results. Or else we will need to go where no Appert Team has gone before - Lake Placid.

Not the full interview, but a little snippet: http://cbs6albany.com/sports/content/rpi-goalie-jason-kasdorf-juggles-married-life

Sounds like he sought Appert's permission to propose. :eek:

He didn't rule out coming back next year, but I still doubt that he will.

Watching the entire interview I am struck by a couple things. First, this is a well spoken polished young man who has all his ducks in order. Second, I can fully understand why he got married. A lovely and beautiful woman. But, i could not help thinking how much his living situation and his apartment was so similar to my experience at RPI in the early 1960's.:rolleyes: NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Close is nice, as we could really use him for these two games. Hopefully he is on the ice tomorrow night.

I’m not 100% positive but I do believe he’ll have his degree come grad. day. Seems like yesterday I was talking to him @ HFH on his recruiting trip. A skinny 17 yr. old then.

He said that he would have a Master's if he stayed next year. That sounds like he is on track to graduate this year.

I hope that SA and John Burke are ready with scholarships for the class entering in 2034. :)

Time does go by faster and faster.
