    Not really. There's not much to play for. If we sweep the weekend, we could MAYBE move into the 11 seed. We've had success at Baker in recent years (but ironically have been poor against Princeton at Meehan), so maybe we can pick up a point or two. Looks like we'll be in Hamden two weekends in a row, as Quinnipiac is currently in fifth place.

    I hope Whittet plays Tim Ernst this weekend. Taking him out after 20 minutes on Senior Night down three to the best team in the league in the midst of a four-win season was shameful. Tim is not a great player, but he has given Brown his all for four years (and has entertained us all with his pads).

    In the meantime, I'll be over at Stevenson on Saturday enjoying what is sure to be another exciting lacrosse game.

        From one defensive debacle to another. Is Lax team overhyped?

                Jeez, Ralph...this almost gave me a heart attack!

                I'm pretty down on the program at the moment, but I certainly don't want it to fold.

                  What a smile! Great to see Harry is still getting some chances with the NHL.

                    Sorry about that. It almost gave me a heart attack too, and I don't root for Brown. It's what happens when one receives tweets from numerous sources and just reads through them all at a rapid rate.

                    It is not relevant to Brown, the university, but I think that it is showing that due to the oil glut, hockey teams at all levels are in trouble in Alaska. The Alaska Aces (ECHL) are also folding, and both UA_ and UAA have had recent financial trouble as reported here on USCHO. Lastly, with the Kenai River Brown Bears folding, I wonder of the other NAHL team in Alaska, the Fairbanks Ice Dogs, will stay afloat.

                      Sad when a program folds. I remember when Penn dropped hockey due to finances and low attendance.

                              25 losses. There is no justification for Brendan Whittet having a job next fall. None whatsoever. He's had eight seasons at the helm now and the team has gotten exponentially worse since reaching its apex in 2013.

                              The program is a joke. People are laughing at us. I saw a writer refer to us as "one of the worst college teams in recent memory" on Twitter today. You'd have to do some serious mental gymnastics to convince yourself otherwise.

                                Do you think it is his fault or is it that he has no backing from the administration/alums, while I feel it's time for Whittet as well because 8 years is plenty to form your program into something I don't think it's all his fault and in order to be a successful Ivy League coach I feel you need to have established recruiting relationships and something to sell. I think Whittet is a good recruiter but the school he's at it's not possible to be a good recruiter when you have very little to show for with the on ice product coupling that with the academic stress. I'm with you because if you look at Princeton who was in a similar spot after Gadowsky and then Fogarty got a few good classes in and they should be up around the top half in future years.
