    Anyway, what difference does it make whether they come from NY State, California, or Slovakia? When they get here, they are all Engineers!
    Why do the Gophers constantly recruit from Minnesota? Why did BU used to recruit mostly from Massachusetts? Why do Clarkson and SLU get mostly Ontarians and Quebecois? Why did Harkness leave RPI for Cornell?

    There's always a special feeling of regionalism when you see boys from your backyard play for your college team. Certainly they are all engineers once they get here, and there's no questioning that.

        It's a quibble, I know, but they are not all engineers. More are management majors. They are however all Engineers.

              I said that, and it is more than just a token.

                    Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

                      It's a distinct plus for the RPI program when SA does this kind of video. Thanks for posting it.

                        Not unless the Troy brothels are a recruiting incentive.

                          True, but I suspect that the hcokey players don't need it.

                          Looking at the address, 1725 6th Avenue, it appears that her brothel was approximately where the police station is now.

                            RB: Please stay on topic-after all this is the recruit thread. BTW-Mame Faye was located almost exactly across from the old Holiday Inn/Best Western/Rensselaer Inn. There were many others including but not limited to extending up into North Troy. You must remember what a bustling metropolis Troy was back then and the economic powerhouse it represented with all the industry there.

                              Hey now, it's on topic. After all, it's things that could be used to entice recruits!

                                That's why the old Holiday Inn across the street is now a dorm.
