    Well, I like nice. But on a different topic...

    There's some absolutely disgusting behavior coming out of Colorado Springs. Air Force has changed the game times this coming weekend to give the home team as huge an advantage as they possibly could. First make the east coast team start a game at 9:30 EST, then a 17-hour turnaround for game 2. How can they be allowed to do that?

      Because football likely takes precedence over hockey and Air Force is home against Colorado State. Same happened last weekend at West Point when Army hosted Air Force in football on Saturday (sell out) and then delayed the start of the Hockey game from 7:05pm to 8:05 to give the football fans a chance to clear out. Air Force probably has other events that make hockey take a back seat to more 'important' events to the detriment of RIT. Nice.

        That is indeed the case. ESPN picked up the Air Force/Colorado State game just last week, rescheduling it until 8:05pm MST on Saturday. This has caused a ripple effect of rescheduling across all Air Force athletics for the weekend, including hockey, basketball and several others.

        If you have never been to the Air Force Academy, a sold out football game absolutely takes over the entire campus and athletic staffs.

          Awfully convenient for Coach Serratore's squad, though, isn't it? Like we needed any more disadvantages going in there.

            There is no doubt that it makes the weekend games even more difficult for the Tigers.

              Air Force not playing at the same RIT is?? It's not ideal, but get some extra rest on the flight and go play...

                    Getting a split out of Air Force would be a very good result. The short turnaround between Friday and Saturday will put more pressure on the loser of the Friday game to salvage points on the weekend with less time to recover.

                      Now that the election is out of the way, maybe they can focus on playing some quality hockey this weekend!

                        Like many of us, I'm sure many of them were up late last night and into this morning, hope they get some sleep/rest on the flight out to Colorado.

                          No non-stops via the commercial airlines, how do they travel to Colorado?

                            Probably through O'Hare, busy airport, but I honestly do not know. Maybe our radio guys know more about the travel itinerary.

                              The team is flying in and out of Denver, via O'Hare. With the number of players/staff and all the equipment, Denver provides access to larger planes and more options than Colorado Springs.

                              We are flying in and out of Colorado Springs, also via O'Hare.
