          No (athletic) scholarships for the Brown players right?

            What does Brown have that SCSU doesn't?

            An NCAA playoff win and I saw it live. Brown beat BU 8-7 in the 3rd place consolation game in the old DU Arena on March 27, 1976.

            In Brown's first game in that tourney, Michigan Tech needed 2 OTs to beat them 7-6. The other semi was the famous BU/MN game with the huge brawl with MN winning 4-2. Herb Brooks got his first national title when MN beat MTU 6-4 in the final.

            Edit: they actually have two NCAA tourney wins. They beat CC 8-4 on March 16, 1951 in the semis in Colorado Springs. They have made the tourney 4 times and are 2-5 in the 7 games they have played.

              Right. But the Ivies all have huge endowments (however, they aren't quite as huge these days) and can afford to fund most, if not all, student-athletes' educations purely with financial aid in various forms. So even though there aren't any official scholarships for athletes, we can still find ways to pay for them to attend the school. The problem is finding kids who meet the rigorous academic requirements and are also talented enough to play for a D-1 school (although, apparently we are the only one with that problem- Harvard, Cornell, Yale, Princeton, and Dartmouth have all found success recently, and all finished in the top 6 of the ECAC standings last year).

                Union's ranked #18, so I wouldn't really say SCSU was playing down to them in a tie.

                Brown also tied Union, though, so hopefully that indicates that we will see a fairly balanced series between the teams.

                  REALLY?!? Was gonna make sure I made the MTU series so I could see you and the hubby, but if you'll be at the Brown series, even better! We're taking my little brother and the woman's cousins to the Sunday afternoon game.

                        Good thing he doesn't have friday off.

                        You never know what Husky team is going to show up. Will we see the Husky team that blew a two goal lead in the last 6 minutes against Union or the team that out played Denver a few weeks ago? Our starting goalie and chief sieve Mike Lee will be sieving out for team USA during this series so we will have to stoop to Dan Dunn for both of these games. I don't know what the team is going to do starting a goalie with a better GAA and save percentage. I am sure if Dunn shuts them out both games Lee will start the next friday against MTU.........
                        I am Tommyboy, and I approve this message.

                        In Bob we Trust!

                        The Herb Brooks National Hockey Center..... I wonder who originally came up with that.

                            Well UHM would advise you that Union is #1 then, now and always.

                            But you guys beat Quinnipiac. How'd you pull that off?

                              I don't know if anyone has commented on this yet, since I didn't read the whole thread (was too lazy).

                              But St. Cloud might benefit from the fact that Brown will have had almost a full month off. 5 straight wins intot he break - if this game is played on the weekend after the AIC game, then Brown might sweep the series. But having that month off always kills momentum. In all likelihood, Coach Whittet will have the troops ready to go, but you can't help but wonder if the lay-off is going to hurt.

                              That said, I, too, love the title of this. All in good fun and extremely politically incorrect. I wouldn't have it any other way.
