    No Mark, this is every bit as much about the reasons the coach used profanity and the reason is that everyone outside of Hamden is sick of his embarrassing behavior.
    You seriously need to relax. Get off your high horse, take a second, and relax.

      Points 1-2, 4-5: For the bajillionth time, nobody is arguing whether or not it was a major-and-a-game; of course it was. The question here is whether Rand was allowed to ask for embellishment in the heat of the moment to protect arguably one his top players. He did. Was he wrong? Seems like it. But he had a right to ask for it. Did Schafer have a right to be upset about Rand? Yup. Should he have used profanity in a public forum against one of his peers? Nope. That is about the crux of the situation.

      Point 6: Play defense. Stop crying.

      Point 7-9: Probably should have at least been looked at. Again though, play better in the third. Stop crying.
      The "stop crying" bit would be way more powerful if I was actually crying about anything.

      Re 1-5: Q radio sure took exception to the penalty being called. I don't think I was defending Schafer above, do you?
      Re 6: People got mad that the game got chippy/out of hand. It's the other side of running up the score and you can't fault one side and not the other.
      Re 7-9: Now I'm crying because I said Q deserved to win the game? Jeez. Tough crowd.

        You were not defending Schafer, that was more so directed to this topic as a whole. Also, I am agreeing with you in terms of the broadcast. That specifically has been a talking point for a while amongst my friends and I.

        Yes, running up a score can make the game chippy. I believe part of that can also be attributed to the losing team's frustration over their own performance. Want a team to stop scoring; play better defense. And if my memory serves me right, they only scored one goal in the third period of game two. That said, can you really blame a team that is facing elimination (and trying to ensure a no. 1 NCAA tourney seed) that much for trying to ensure they weren't going to lose the game?

        Either way, this next meeting between these two teams will be must-watch hockey. Hopefully I can make the trip up to Cornell

              Moving on......

              Two big games this weekend for us. Yes the defense played extraordinary this past weekend can they replicate that on the road? Garteig seems to have turned the corner. Let's hope we see that Garteig the rest of the year.

              As for Union and RPI. Union looks like they could be without Colin Stevens this weekend after he chipped a bone in his shoulder last weekend. Union has struggled mightily this year but they top have a great top line. Vecchione is one of the best players in the ECAC. If we slow him down, we slow U down tremendously. For some reason I never have a good feeling with us playing at RPI. RPI's offense is alittle suspect, but nothing is suspect about Kasdorf. He is the best goalie in the league and can win RPI a game any given night. Should be two good road games. Went up to both games last year and enjoyed myself minus our 0-1-1 weekend. Won't be going this year though, time to check out our fantastic women's team this weekend.

                Now let's not make any rash decisions here. I need something to read when I'm on lunch break.

                On the note about the broadcasters. I am 99% sure Kotsy can't read, but that might be because he got knocked out so many times in the NHL so I should probably give him a break. On Schweizer I don't think he is trying as much as he used to. The guy is clearly a world class broadcaster when you look back on what he's done, but sometimes I think he doesn't put forth his absolute best. I have heard his prep work is unlike anyone else so maybe it is Kotsy just dumbing him down.

                  I have that same anxiety with them as well for some reason. However, Quinnipiac is 4-1-2 at Houston Field House since the 2007-08 season with the lone loss coming in February of 2010. In fact, the Q is 7-2-5 against RPI since 07-08 with both losses coming in the 2009-10 campaign.

But when it really counted, he absolutely schooled Rand. Absent my winking comment earlier, both coaches were wrong, get over it.
                    Haha, I'm glad he's relaxed a bit. I haven't dealt with him since graduating QU in 2008.

                          In all honesty, I doubt it. Although many of them have been close, the last few years of Cornell-Q games have been pretty bad hockey. By all rights this should be an interesting clash of styles (c.f. the intense Cornell-Union games over the same period) but for whatever reason the teams have just been ragged. Now add surly and it's not likely to get better, unfortunately.

                            Is it too much for me to expect three points out of this weekend? I know that it will be difficult, but I think this program has reached a point where I can legitimately expect three points every weekend, and anything less is disappointing. Obviously two points would not be the worst thing in the world, but at least three points would really set QU up as a team to be taken seriously in conference play. If Garteig continues his strong play, and the defense remains solid, I think at least three is attainable.

                            Friday vs Union: 3-1 Q
                            Saturday vs RPI: 1-1 tie

                              A visit to the reigning national champs. While they're reeling a bit of late, Union is always a tough team. We'll need another complete effort just like last weekend. It will be interesting to see if the same intensity can be found on the road.

                                They're the defending National Champs, so I have a feeling intensity won't be an issue tonight.
