      So far 8 schools have cancelled, the 6 Ivies, RIT, and UAA. Almost all of the others have schedules at least through December.
      Why do we think that SAJ has anything to do with the ECAC schedule. Are we going to blame her for covid next?
      I watched part of the Wisconcin/Notre Dame game on NHL network last night. What did the big 10 do that the ECAC didn't?
      Will someone from the ECAC come out and tell us what is going on?
      This is one lousy organization.

        The ECAC is ALL the AD's of member institutions - which means the schools run the ECAC. The AD's take their marching orders from the school President's. I predict SAJ will cancel the RPI hockey season. One lousy organization??? Maybe if you understood how the ECAC is governed, you might better understand the organization. Also, there is nothing that happens at RPI without the stamp of SAJ.

        I've been lost since 1989. I got a breakaway on a river and have been skating ever since!

        • As of now, you have four schools which will comprise the ECAC; Quinnipiac, SLU, Clarkson, and Colgate. There will likely be a schedule with these four teams competing. I am not including RPI, due to the fact that Juniors will be off campus second semester - RPI COVID rules/guidelines, which were instituted by the honorable SAJ! You need 13 players to constitute a team for competition, which RPI will likely fail to meet. This is really a moot point since I expect SAJ will be cancelling.

            You say this like SAJ is out on an island.
            If the ADs run the ECAC, than why are there four only schools going out on their own. How do you explain that?
            I know that many people on this board that don't like SAJ. And I am sure that they have many great reasons for that, but while she may be behind the lack of hockey at RPI, she is not alone in holding back hockey in the northeast.
            And while I hate losing an RPI season, maybe those other schools care more about the health of their students than having athletic events.

              Without the juniors there will still be more than 13, not that we would be too good. And if SAJ wants there to be hockey, which I tend to doubt, a way could be found.

                What is your basis for only showing 4. Once you subtract the Ivy's, I believe there are 5?

                  Hockey players are exempt from the summer arch program. The summer arch program is why juniors are required to be off campus next semester. RPI will have a full team at their disposal if they choose to play.

                    I am oversimplifying it, but the Big 10 makes a lot of money from televised sports and the ECAC doesn't.

                      That is a great observation. Follow the money.

                              If someone has a better suggestion for the date of the first game, please post it. I will continue honoring the women when 300 + uniform # rolls around. There will thus be a few repeats.

                              • You could always use the roster for the ACHA club players. Would be nice to give them some recognition.
