This whole topic has been discussed on another thread. The situation you described would be pretty rare. If he did redshirt, he would be 27, but RIT generally only redshirts because of medical reasons. So in all likelihood, he would be 26. It's a somewhat rare to see a player that old, considering our oldest players are 24 this year.

I personally don't like that there is a 23 yr old freshman, but I wouldn't describe RIT as having serious issues. I know Denver had a 25 year old this year and so do other teams.

My whole understanding of the Athletic Scholarship situation (and please, somebody correct me if I'm wrong) was that the 2003 reform package mandated that DIII schools follow DIII bylaws no matter the division that they play in, although the scholarships existent at that time were grandfathered in. Thus, no scholarships.

Now this part I know for a fact: that same 2003 reform eliminated the ability to redshirt, with the exception of medical redshirting if the injury/condition causes a player to participate in fewer than 1/3 of the RS games for the team, from DIII.

Thus, my understanding of this would lead me to conclude that Medical Redshirts are the ONLY redshirts RIT would be allowed to award.

Again, please correct me if I'm wrong.

I'll try to spell this out for you. Taking a poster to task for something that he wrote and making a little fun of him is not talking smack.

In his original statement, he pointed out how cocky our fans are, implying that we were overconfident of the upcoming game and hoped that our players would be also. He was implying that we were taking your team lightly. We weren't, there was no proof that we were and he was proven to be talking out his arse.

To me, talking smack is more along the lines of mentioning our championships, draft picks, superior talent, good looking co-eds etc. Things that YOU mentioned, not me.

Does that help? :rolleyes:

P.S. Are you really a professor? Yikes!

Your analysis is correct, Gurtholfin.

And being a Professor is no great shakes. Trust me, I know.

Oh, and let me say this RIT fans...

I'd rather be playing Denver or UNH, as we've played and beat them both. Playing against an unknown makes me a little uneasy.

So what are the fan expectations out in Badger-land? Is anything less than a championship a disappointment, or was this a success in just making it to the Frozen Four. I would think as a 1-seed expectations are sky high.

In the low-scoring, one-and-done world of college hockey, seeds have little meaning. Anybody can beat almost anybody. Personally, I'm chewing my fingernails off. Not that losing a hockey game is the end of the world.

I do think it's fair to say just making the FF isn't good enough. Not winning it <S>will</S> would be a disappointment.

I read somewhere that RIT has something like 10k male students and 5k female.

NERD SCHOOL!!! :eek: :p :DAccording to wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rit#People), the exact numbers are 9,466 males and 4,579 females in the fall of '09.

I dare say, we could whip out my MTU song for this game:

(to the tune of "If You're Happy And You Know It")

If you want a sausage-fest, go to Tech *clap*clap*
If you want a sausage-fest, go to Tech *clap*clap*

That's nice.

Is the reference here that UW is a state-funded school, or do you actually have no idea who RIT is facing on Thursday?

That U-Wisco is the equivalent to a state school.

If you think thats bad, i don't want to tell you what it was like 10 -15 years ago!!!!
I think it was more like 7:2 rather than 2:1.... and I always remember seeing that there were more NTID Ladies....

2:1 is still a lot better than MTU.

So you've got that going for you, which is nice.

Are you saying UW isn't a state school?? Maybe our terminology for that is different back east too?

And can't a big-time school like Wisconsin come up with better professor insults? (From where I'm sitting, being a Prof. is far more than it's cracked up to be. I'm happy anyway and we have good hockey to watch, golf to play, etc. etc. Maybe a lot like Wisconsin?)

And our president's goal is 40% women. When asked why only 40% he says that the rest of the guys never leave their dorm rooms / computers anyway, so it would seem like 50-50.

I was at RIT in the early '80s when it was 8:1 ... that's was why my (now) wife came to RIT ... her sister told her the odds would be well in her favor. While we might lack quantity, there is still some good quality.

Keep that in mind Thursday night.

Heh, that's funny. My wife (who went to RIT) said that she and her girlfriends used to say "The odds may be good, but the goods are odd"

In any event, a school that has a hockey cheer that starts "e to the x, dx dy" has embraced it's Nerd School status has it not?

Also, living in San Diego, I find it positively hilarious that Wisconsin would dare to comment on any school's women. They're in the land of brats and fried cheese curds people.
