I didn't see the game on 640. DirecTV, right?

Yep, the UND/RPI game and the UM/UNO game are both listed in the guide now on 640 (MASN), but I don't see the DU game in the guide yet. Hopefully it will indeed be on, that's the only game not listed yet. I'll be in GB, but it's always nice to have a replay to watch later.

Hail, dear old Rensselaer,
The college of our hearts!
For dear old Rensselaer,
Each man must do his part! (FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!)
True sons of Rensselaer,
we all must strive to be!
Now, dear old Rensselaer,
Hail to thee!

That can't be right. I've always assumed it was...

Hail, dear old Rensselaer,
Dah dah dah dah dah daaah!
Daah dah dah Rensselaer,
Dah dah dah dah dah daaah! (FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!)
Daah dah dah Rensselaer,
Dah dah dah dah dah daaah!
Daah dah dah Rensselaer,
Hail to thee!

At about 8 minutes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9Y_oM2gjQE. (The whole game is out there in 10-minute segments. Sadly not the UMD game.)

Is that Lou Nanne on the color commentary?

Yes, indeed. It is interesting that he signed George Servinis for the North Stars as a free agent soon after the tourney (whether or not he was offsides. ;) ). George only played a few games for them.

I just like to think of it as super anticipation:rolleyes:

Replace "dah" with "blah", include "blah"s on the first line, sometimes the last line, and you have what I'm familiar with. Some dude actually printed out the text of the fight song (albeit the PC text) and put it on everyone's chair in Section 33 (back in 2005-06) because he didn't like how we used "blah".

While leading Hobey Baker Award candidate Jeff Frattin gets most of the attention, the Sioux have plenty of outstanding talent sitting on the bench waiting their turn at all times.
Unintentional intentional Ed Weaver mistake of the article?

Genoway, Zajac, Parise all had brothers that played for the Sioux. I am delighted to know Matt Frattin has a brother, Jeff. Amazingly, RPI is more concerned with Jeff Frattin than his accomplished brother, Matt.

Also, it appears RPI is not "itching" to play, they are "inching" to play. At that rate, they will never arrive in Green Bay from Troy. This could be a forfeit.

I realize that you kidding, but the articles about RPI hockey in the local rag almost always have errors in them. We have been discussing these for ages.

I add that RPI arrived in Green Bay yesterday as shown in this blog article http://blog.timesunion.com/hockey/rpi-arrives-in-green-bay-and-tours-lambeau-field/8399/ from the Albany T-U.

Mix in some irresponsible reporting (Bina payback - not) with some perceived snub and its fire and gasoline, as suggested by cross cheque. I hope the coaches and players don't let anything happen should these two teams meet again this season. I sincerely doubt Brad Malone was trying to injure or kill Jesse Martin.

I don't know if UND did enough to support Jesse martin, that is a debate that can't be won. I do respect jesse's opinion though and I certainly don't think any less of his character after this article. He is a senior watching his team make a tournament run without him which must be very frustrating especially after last weekend when DU was giving all they had for him and the team. Best wishes to Jesse and DU.

Hey, best wishes to the ______ and the Sioux in the NCAAs. I don't know if ______ did enough to support Bina/Genoway/etc., that is a debate that can't be won.

So is ESPN 3 the only way to watch the regional final (hoping the Sioux make it)?

Jeff was on double secret probation, and is only allowed to play in this game regardless of whether the Sioux win or not. He's 8'5" tall, weighs 450lbs, skates faster than anyone else on the team, and his slapshot has been recorded at over 140mph. Goalies often complain that they don't even seem him coming into the zone before it is too late, and the other skaters don't know what hit them when Big Bad Jeff (his nickname) crashes them into the boards. He's too fast for the refs, and he never gets called for a penalty. Comparing Big Bad Jeff to his little brother Matt is like comparing Wayne Gretzky to a mite. RPI should be worried about Jeff...and really no need to even bother worrying about Matt :p:D:D
