I guess the Belt will go to the HEA for a couple of weeks.

When does it go West for the rest of the season?

Looking at the schedule:

Northeastern get it on 10/28 :p
BC then get it on 11/08
BC hold it till they play Connecticut on 2/6 :mad:
Connecticut play only HE opponents until the HE tournament

... so it looks like it goes to the NCAAs with the HE tournament winner. SCIENCE.

Worst case scenario is that it somehow ends up in the hands of the final opponent of an ECAC team that doesn't make the conference playoffs but does win its last regular season game; then it wouldn't make it to the NCAA tournament at all.

I forgot it was up for grabs today. I was already planning for NU to play for it on Tuesday...

I want to see it passed around Hockey East in such a way that BC never actually gets to play for it. Maybe the league will declare you to be the mandatory challenger some time.

Looks like NU may get to play for it in a week: Maine's schedule is UConn, NU, Brown. Personally I'm rooting for Brown to take it next.

BELT UPDATE: The belt heads west. Minnesota Duluth knocks off Cornell twice last weekend. Shannon Miller is wearing the belt now. Bemidji State could be next :)

Yikes! Pursuit of Excellence could then stash the belt away in Kelowna, BC if they could pull off the upset next Wed. vs. Bemidji State.

After the last few weeks from BSU it would be a whole lot more than an upset if PoE beat BSU. The belt may be traveling a few miles West this weekend & a well deserved trip it is.

No. Exhibitions are not sanctioned contests, so the Belt is not on the line.I agree with this ruling.

In the old days what would have happened is that even if PoE managed to win the game, at the next televised event Wally Karbo, while being interviewed by Marty O'Neill, would announce that AWA president Stanley Blackburn had ruled that BSU v. PoE was not sanctioned and therefore not an event at which the belt could pass. PoE would be required to have a representative appear on camera to sheepishly deliver the belt back to Karbo and some representative of BSU, I am thinking someone like Steve Sertich.

How is there not a real belt passed around between fans

One of our guys held onto it despite the result at this past Frozen Four. ;)

(Seriously, though, he does own a replica WWE IC championship belt.)

OH Gosh, you're old enough to know Wally Cardboard and Marty Bigdeal! If you remember matches being held at the Calhoun Beach Club Ballroom I'll know you are really old!

He ain't the only one.

How about fall guy Kenny Jay?

OH Gosh, you're old enough to know Wally Cardboard and Marty Bigdeal! If you remember matches being held at the Calhoun Beach Club Ballroom I'll know you are really old!The activities at the Calhoun Beach Club were TV tapings and therefore could only be considered "matches" in the very broadest sense of the term. They were barely even exhibitions. But, yes, certainly I remember those.

Mr. O'Neill used to frequent the same 3.2 joint where I occasionally whiled away an evening or six. He lived in the neighborhood and would drop by for the joint's signature "Coney Island" dogs. He was always a cordial and interesting conversation.


How about fall guy Kenny Jay?In this particular instance perhaps PoE = Sodbuster Kenny Jay?

Nertz! It's true then, what they say about women's hockey. Little kids and gray hairs. Sigh.
