    Agree, not sure what you mean by "promotion?"

    So, what are you thinking will happen at Air Force this coming weekend, especially compared to our success last time out there?

    And, did I miss your last week's prediction tallies in Lerch's AHA column today?

    And, what happened to Humanoid?
    My goal is to get to the Air Force matchup before I take off (no pun intended) for Thanksgiving.

    As for the prediction tallies, we typically do the tally on Friday with the selection column, so I know that it'll be htere. I waxed him last week which means I'm going to get waxed this week.

    Here's some awards to chew on for the first part of the season: http://jarpride.com/2013/11/26/falco...-third-awards/

    And last, I've actually talked to Humanoid. He's been a little active over on the Brown board but otherwise hasn't been checking into this stuff a lot. I'll let him know some people are asking for him to weigh in. Personally, I know that he grew tired of the constant belittling and bickering on the boards to the point where the discussion went from productive about the Falcons to counterproductive with moaning about the coaches, the lack of administrative support, or whatever. Those comments had run its course, so he stopped posting. Or as he told me, not everyone has a job that allows them to argue with the internets haha.

    If I don't get the chance, wishing everyone here a good Thanksgiving. Hopefully y'all get to eat till you burst, and wake up from your nap in time to watch the games on Friday and Saturday (yes, that would include a 30 hour nap).

    Not sure what you mean.

    But, as of yesterday, we are 1-2 against ranked teams this season (Quinnipiac 5th, Omaha 16th). Perhaps BU will climb back up by the time we play them next month to give us a chance to even that up.

    Also, as of today we are ranked 6th in RPI for AHA teams; big opportunity to move up in that ranking this weekend.

    Sounds like you are suggesting that playing or not playing defense only concerns the D-men and goalie, Dan. But, I think that the Bentley forwards were equally at fault for not playing better defense against AIC. And, I am assuming that the forwards played much better defense against UConn and Holy Cross, as I was not able to see either of those two games.

    My brother, who lives in Lakewood, may catch one Bentley and one UNH game (the Cats are visiting CC). I had hoped to fly out for the break, but too much work.

    I picked Bentley to split this past weekend, but of course am delighted that they came away with 4 points.

    Lots of time to practice and prep for Air For now, the only AHA team to have two OOC wins this season.

    The Falcons played disciplined hockey this weekend, taking fewer dumb penalties. Also, they re-found their long lost PP from early last season. So, 3-2 against their eastern pod brethren. Now, time to see how the eastern pod teams stack up against the western pod.
    Yes, they did, what a little benching can do for the penalty prone......

    Nice "winning line up" to bring into the Air Force Weekend. Top to bottom. Obviously the Defensive shut down of Uconn was the bigger of the two, more important to not give up than get goals in some games...And the return of the PP!.

    Winning in OT is always nice but a little troublesome to get themself in that position in the first place. Rookie dman mistake led to tying goal and to see it repeated 3 mins later by the same player for the go ahead goal..... Maybe a rookie defensive coach mistake.....Accountability

    Bentley gets into trouble that can lead to outcomes like AIC's when adjustments aren't made or are not based on the sitution on the ice. in real time.

    Solid lines F and D , seen a bigger effort and forecheck on offensive too.

    So whatever was done to lines, game plan etc to produce such a great outcome over two solid teams you don't change a thing.
