NO WAY!!!!
I'm not lying. When he was hammered at the final 5 he was calling everyone in his phone trying to get stb's number. He failed, but then apparently a couple days later someone texted him the number.

The welcoming committee would like to blame Clarkson for underperforming so much, that Dartmouth now has the shortest trip. Had Clarkson played better, Dartmouth could be swapped with Michigan Tech, creating 2 long bus rides instead of one, and not having an intraconference matchup.

Once again, Cluck Farkson.

If only we could've beat SLU(T) last Sunday (or was it the Sunday before?). ;) Maybe that would've made us less bad enough?

There are 9 refs, and 6 linesmen per game. They are the only good refs in the NCAA, as the bad ones are busy reffing the real tournament.

That was the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis (fitting, since the game is in Moscow) and the NY Mets (still holders of baseball's futility record).

Are they all named Shepherd, Schmitt, Baker or Murphy?

There seem to be multiples of each...

You forgot to mention they are all wasted too.

I think the committee should just hire unregistered local teenagers to ref the games. It's a bonus if they don't know how to skate.

Are you kidding me? We can't have competent reffing at these games! :D

Also a bonus if they know little-to-nothing about hockey, especially NCAA hockey. They'll let the players fight. :D

I do have a Tech line chart from this morning's game with Clarkson. Since the season is over, Russell told me that before the team left for Moscow, he decided to just throw names into a hat and draw them to come up with some new lines. So we had:

BUNGER!-Rohn-Kivisto
Short Pylon-Witt-Gwilliam
Henoinen-Tall Pylon-Cousens

Cone-Doriott
Brown-? (game-time decision based on results of intra-squad rock-paper-scissors tournament)

Sawhorse
Used Delta Zeta Mattress
Cramer

Genoe and Robinson were both unable to make the trip. It was reported that during a team golf outing last weekend, Robinson went to take a shot, and somehow lost control of the club. It flew through the air and "accidentally" hit Genoe in the head. Then earlier this week, Robinson was rushed to Marquette General for undisclosed reasons. It turns out that someone had been spiking his Red Bulls with windshield washer fluid for almost three weeks. No word on any possible suspects in that case.

Additionally, numerous other injuries have cropped up including a couple pulled groins (thanks a lot skating treadmill), and a wave of food poisoning resulting from a quick dinner at a truck stop in Montana. Thus, Tech had to make due with who/what was available.
