    I sure as hell get it. I've been saying this, or words to this effect, for some time, now.

Your mentallity is the same one as all those big dumb idiots down in Lincoln have (football players). We don't need premadonnas we need numbers in the win column period. If you come to UNO on a scholarship and plan for anything less you don't deserve any recognition. This cry baby mentality our society has is why we have the mess we have. matt white was sent a message so was what's his name show off alex whatever. If you want to act stupid go home and be forgotten. Gee I wonder how a coach like Red Berenson handles dumb kids.
      I fundamentally agree with you the gist of what you've said, but, you managed to gloss over the fact that the victim here said himself that the whole thing was blown entirely out of proportion.

      I'm not saying say so, the accused aren't saying so, the person this happened to is the one who is saying so. When the "victim" is saying that the punishment did not fit the crime that certainly raises eyebrows about how this whole matter was handled.

      I am not defending Matt White, Preston Hodge, or Alex Simonson. I wasn't there. I don't know, EXACTLY what went on. But when the victim of an alleged crime is taking umbrage with the punishment that is dealt out to the accused in the matter, to the point that you have such a problem with it you refuse to cooperate with the authorities, that sure says something to me. It screams knee-jerk, overreaction by the school to me unless the school presents evidence to the contrary, something that they did not do then, or, since.

        Lucky SOB's, grumble grumblegrumble
        Just to be clear. My disinterest in this team became of the Uni's disinterest. Without the success of the hockey team, the other teams would not be where they are. Way to pay back the hockey team. **** UAA.

          Good article about the first game misconduct and ejection of Coach Blais' career last weekend (and covers a lot of other UNO hockey ground, too) in today's Omaha World Herald:

            As satisfying a win tonight as UNO has had since our last tourney season in '10-'11.

            This season is becoming kinda reminiscent of '09-'10, Coach Blais' first season here, when we sorta caught fire and went 7-4-1 down the stretch and turned it into a 20-16-6 season.

            We need to win tomorrow night and we need SCSU to lose.

            Very entertaining game tonight and I am sure that DU has had quite enough of Josh Archibald.

            Disappointing crowd, only 6,281. Among the smallest crowds of the season. There will be more there tomorrow night, which is a must win game for UNO if they have any serious conference title aspirations.

              Blais shouldn't complain too much. I saw 3 different time we should have taken a hooking call and we didn't. I didn't see a whole lot of Archibald after he got his second goal. I wondered if coach benched him just to keep him healthy. The ice seemed like it was in bad shape.

                After he got knocked into the boards and left the ice (with some help) people sitting around me started to ask me where he was or if I had seen him. We assumed he was just a bit dinged up. He was out quite a bit at the end. Would have been nice for him to get that third goal again. He's starting to get onto the Hobey radar screen but for him to win it he has to stay THIS on fire and UNO has to become (and stay) equally on fire. Otherwise, he won't get the needed, ahem, "attention" to win it.

                  I wondered if Dean would bench him to keep him from being a target. Sounds like it was too late for that. He won't get the Hobey because his stats aren't as good and UNO is too far from winning the frozen 4. I brought the crappiest hat I own hoping to toss it.

                    NCHC web site feature on the history of UNO hockey:

                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEStk...RFqazzBgN5gbpC

                    I think it would have been worth mentioning that UNO has only finished as low as 8th in attendance, nationally, ever, and every other year of the program's existence, it has finished no lower than 6th. Another glaring omission would be a reference to the UNO Blue Line Club. I don't know it's size relative to the other NCHC teams, but, when we were in the CCHA, UNO's Blue Line Club was larger than all the other team's in the conference booster clubs combined for the entire time we were in the CCHA. Which is just one of the reasons why we are a "player' every year, nationally, in attendance since the two things are obviously related.

                    While UNO was selling out those 131 straight games at the Civic (cap. 8,314) mentioned in the video we had a season ticket base (over 6,300 the whole time we played there) that was bigger than most teams entire arenas.

                      Great win tonight by the guys. Need to do it again, tomorrow night, obviously.

                      A bit off topic, here is a video feature done by the USHL this week about the Omaha Lancers and their history here:

                      http://www.ushl.com/news.php?action=detail&news_id=2323

                      Since they have blazed a lot of the path for the success of UNO hockey here in Omaha (with apologies to the old Omaha Knights that did so as well) some homage to them is in order. The entire video was shot at their brand new digs, Ralston Arena (cap. 4,020 for hockey):

                      http://www.ralstonarena.com/

                      .............where they are averaging 3,230 per game through 25 home dates this season. The Lancers currently have 4 UNO commits on their roster.

                      Side note: There are UNO fans I have spoken to that are conjecturing that the Lancers might play an occasional big ticket demand game (read: games with the Lincoln Stars) at UNO's new arena. The Lancers already share Ralston Arena with UNO's basketball teams (until UNO's new arena is completed that is).

                      I think their Wikipedia page sums it up nicely:

                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omaha_Lancers

                      "The most stored club in league history", a moniker largely built on the backs of Frank Serratore, Mike Guentzel, & Mike Hastings, I might add.

                      Without the Lancers paving the way, I don't know if UNO hockey happens or if would be as successful as it has been here (everywhere but on the ice).

                              According OWH it's a knee injury for Brady. Also of course as everyone in Omaha knows, Zahn broke his foot valiantly blocking shots on a Western PP Saturday most likely ending his career, just when it finally seemed he'd gotten his speed back after the early season injury.

                                Brady has a knee injury and won't play this this weekend. During Coach Blais' radio show last night, he alluded to the injury but didn't say he wasn't going to play (didn't say he would, either, though). Omaha World Herald article (mostly about Raubenheimer's season ending injury):
