      We're up to #12 in both polls. Not that they matter anymore. Or ever.

        I share shabby's frustration - just isn't the same online when the rest of the teams have more national exposure on television. The HDMI cable is a great idea, thx.

Even though he had to be hurting after the final, he went out of his way to compliment his opponent. I have met him briefly at a Frozen Four and he had time to say hello and chat for a few minutes with this Union fan. He is the dean of ECAC coaches for good reason and a credit to his program and college. Good luck this weekend.
        Couldn't agree more Wholin1, thx - though I would have put Joe Marsh in that category, too. Vaughan sent my class hockey programs, caps, an official Colgate jersey, and hockey pucks. I nearly cried! Vaughan also has a way of resurrecting the program just when you think the ceiling is about to cave in ;-)

        This has been just a tremendous season. I am thrilled for the players to experience what they have - the venues of Minnesota and Lake Placid, among others. Colgate made a proud yet unexpected appearance in historic Lake Placid where the ECAC tournament belongs - and where we did, too.

        Will not forget the triumphant win over Q anytime soon; it left me speechless! Sounded like a great fan base up there in LP. Here's hoping our winning ways continue on Friday. I think I heard the pep band on tv...thank you for the great moral support on the road and at home this season.

        Go 'Gate!

          You know how we solve the "national exposure problem" is to win on Friday. Our game will also be on tape delay so we will get on TV as well. Anyone that cares will already have seen or heard the game and anyone who doesn't won't know the difference.

          The selection show didnt do us any favors, as we were barely mentioned, but hey, use it as a chip and play even better

            Thanks for the tip Rainman. I don't see my ISP listed (Hughes.net).

            Also thanks Rain for the summary of your weekend in LP posted earlier. Enjoyed reading your impressions of the games and the atmosphere up there. Haven't seen attendance figures yet; I presume they were better than in AC. I heard the pep band on the Friday radio broadcast and at the Sat game on the computer. Glad to see they supported the team so well.

              Anyone going on Friday? I wish I could but it's a matter of distance.

                Says over 600 miles to Cinn. and 10 plus hours by car, pretty sure you can fly cheaper. Last weekend took too much out of me, I'm still recharging. It was so emotional (Friday night) My friend CU13 hugged me after the game and said "Shab...I'm too old for this, I can't do it anymore".

                It reminded me so much of the game vs Harvard in Albany when Mormina tied the game with about two minutes left, Harvard scored thirty seconds later, and Mormina tied it again with seconds left to send it into OT. Kevin Du won it for Harvard in the second OT, only this time we wonnnn!!

                Dam, I'm getting the itch to go to Cinn.

                  You know the best part of those Harvard and QU games, we made the NCAA each time

                      According to USCHO story on home page attendance was down dramatically across the board for all college playoff games and series. Not gonna grow hockey if the powers that be don't go the extra mile to televise playoff games, i.e. 'Gate-QU on Friday night. I'm still steamed about that.....

                      Now they've dropped the ball again with the FS game.

                        They always do this. They spend 50% of each bracket segment on the 1-seed, then drop in a couple hastily-researched semi-truisms about the other 3 in the bracket. Then they jump to the panel who know nothing about anybody except maybe Michigan, Minnesota and BC.

                        It's not a Colgate or even an ECAC problem, it's a Bristol problem.

                          The ECAC actually increased attendance by 1000 per night, with no "local" teams. Barely anything mentioned about that. The only way to significantly increase attendance is to give an extra week between quarters and semis. I don't recommend it but it's the only way.

                          Same w/ the NCAA regional.

                          So, what are the thoughts about Ferris State? We have played them 3x fairly well all three times. The only bad period we played statistically was the third of game one.

                            Channel 3 out of Syracuse covered Gate leaving Starr for Cinn. yest, looked like there were several hundred people there, it was nice. They were getting on a bus, hopefully heading to the Syracuse airport avoiding a 10+ hour drive.

                            Question, does the NCAA pay for their travel expenses, if so, I hope they flied.

                                The NCAA does pay for travel expenses. Colgate did fly to Cincinnati: https://twitter.com/Colgate_Hockey/s...03378119426048
