Has anyone found the post game interview from last night? The Troy Record has a video up that claims to be it, but is instead a discussion of a new basketball arena somewhere...

I wonder how many of us got suckered into listening to that. :D

So they saw DC beat Union and the 'Tute beating DC. They should be able to figure out which is the better team in the Capital District. :)

or if they have trouble figuring it out they could just ask cornell or hmmm clarkson.....oh and congrats on your first weekend sweep :)

it was quite funny to see Mello looking up to the "welcome" at the start of the 2nd. Perhaps visiting goalies feel, "at least in the 2nd period I don't have to listen to the fans". Would love to have that reception continue (I sit right behind you)....."skate,skate,,,,turnnnnnnnn. And of course, the Blackhole chant.

It never works out well when the visiting goalie recognizes the fans for what they're doing. Shows their head isn't in the game and... Well look at what happened. Saw it happen so often in D-III it got easy to predict when a big period was coming up for the offense.

Goaltender it's definitely true. Skaters I think it's hit or miss; sometimes they screw up, and sometimes they score the GWG in OT (Bear Trapp in 2005).

Still using small sample sizes?

it was especially great to get a comment out of gaudet. When he was riding the refs for those first 2 pp's. We were heckling him and he looked up at us in section 33 and said either blo* me.... or f off.

Has a # 1 team in the country ever been the game for the freakout before anyone know??

1985, perhaps? ;)

I dont think we were number 1 until the end of the year-I think Michigan State was number one for most of the year-but my memory is clouded by a lot of medication today.:)

Back up to #10 in the USCHO poll.

More importantly, we have 10 ECAC games left before playoffs. Winning 7 or more would be a nice way to sew up a 1st round bye while also putting us in good shape for a tournament bid. Game against Brown on Friday is the real test of this weekend. It's a must win on a night that we haven't played our best this season with lots of incentive to be looking past Brown and toward Yale (and Freakout). A win against Yale would be a great bonus, but not a must have. The way we get to a bye and the NCAA is by beating the teams we should beat. Brown, Cornell, Colgate, SLU and .500 or better in the other 6.

Did anyone notice what type of protection Brock Higgs was using for his throat over the weekend?

I was not able to tell under the helmet, nor was I able to see during the anthems. Perhaps it is one of those that is built into the shirt.

Well, whatever he wore worked.

I didn't see that coming, at least not quite this soon.

Joe certainly did a great job with the RPI football program. He will be sorely missed.

Thinking about his remark about his family's involvement with the program - I can remember going to an RPI game at Susquehanna U. and having Joe's wife come through the bleachers offering homemade cookies to the RPI fans in attendance. Only in Division III. :)

He retired. We will have interviews from ECAV (thanks to yours truly) this weekend during the hockey games.

We can add 10th in the USA Hockey Magazine poll to that.

However, let's hope the team doesn't decide to rest on its laurels. We're only +2 on the first round bye pace. Six home games, four road games, potential for 20 points. 11 points is certainly possible, but I would aim for 13 or 14 to be on the safe side. We are one point out of 3rd, but CCT, who is one point behind us, has a game in hand. This weekend will say a lot about the character of our team.

I noticed a little extra black piece of fabric poking out from under his shirt. My assumption is that this was his throat guard.

I got bored today and wandered through the RPI hockey media guide and saw that in Powers' 5 seasons as head coach, he finished in the top 4 every year but 91-92. Does anyone remember a reason or at least have some kind of explanation for the relatively terrible season in the midst of 5 really good ones? Also, I was wondering about the change from the relatively loose association that was the ECAC pre-1979 to the three-division split in the 79-80 season and then the 12-team association in the 84-85 season (which corresponded with the HEA split). I figured this thread was a decent spot to ask about RPI / ECAC history.

Classes haven't started yet, eh? ;)
