    Marmot, when TheGreenCoat turned from optimism to sarcasm, I halfway understood it.

      Don't feel too bad. The rink at FSU is a very tough place to play being so small. FSU has it down and it's worth at least a goal per game to them. Everyone has a tough time there.

        let's set the record straight...I'm optimistic - cautiously so - out TWO YEARS...one does have to ask the question (and I am agnostic on this issue) why are we scoring 1.5 goals/game in our last 38 games (and frankly, we weren't scoring much before that time frame)? Is it a coaching philosophy? I've never questioned DV's coaching ability (and I don't mean to make any assertions in this direction), but, at least, the issue MUST be addressed...even if our recruiting has been down in recent years our kids, by and large, were at least decent scorers at the pre-collegiate level...Griffin Lunn was an OK scorer in a tough league (USHL); Jeffrey Stewart was a point/game scorer in the higher-scoring BCJL...I simply don't know, but at a minimum 2.5 goals/game is necessary to be within earshot of a .500 season...

          By the time I turned the Braves game on it was 10-0 in the first inning, as I said before, thank you Bruins. The lowest point would be a loss to Bucknell Saturday.

            Our football and men's ice hockey teams are a combined 0-8. We're still very early into the hockey season, but God help us, please!

                Mitch Benson again led ‘Gate on the ice for today’s pre-game warm-up. Boston College is 21-2-0 versus Colgate. Our two wins came in 1980-81 (6-3 at home) and 1982-83 (4-1 at home).
                I saw Robert Morris defeat Bentley at home yesterday, 4-1, on my drive home from our 3-1 loss at Ferris State on Thursday.

                  Boston College 12, Colgate 10, SOG after one.
                  Boston College 1, Colgate 0, score after one.
                  Wow. That was one fast-paced period of hockey.
                  And this is one talented, quick and accurate BC team.
                  Kudos to Colgate (and BC) for scheduling this non-conference contest.
                  Good opportunity to see first-hand to what we aspire.

                    Colgate 31, Boston College 19, SOG after two.
                    Boston College 2, Colgate 0, score after two.
                    Wow. That was another fast-paced period of hockey.
                    The goal came 17 seconds into the second period.
                    I don’t know the exact stats, but we have had more Power Play opportunities than BC, thus the shot total.
                    It is an absolute honor to watch a team of BC’s caliber (with Jerry York at the helm).

                      Colgate 37, Boston College 25, SOG final.
                      Boston College 3, Colgate 0, score final.
                      Needless to say, the better team won.

                        certainly not for the lack of trying...but "trying" isn't our problem...some bad luck, to be sure, but lack of overall team skill is another...2 goals in 3 games...1PP in, what, 16 chances...the more things change the same they stay the same...BTE, Holy Cross beat Providence the other night...RPI split with UMass, leading 5-1 in second match...

                          Did Gate have any scoring chances at all ? We outshot them, were the shots all from the blue line ? Was our PP pathetic, what were BC's goals Like ? Did any of the frosh do anything ? McMann ? How did Bensen look ?

                            And we go to Lowell for 2 games next weekend. Can you say 0-5?

                              Their shots were definitely higher quality than our shots, and Mitch Benson deserves credit for keeping it as close as it was. Having said that, in three separate instances, we had two pings off the pipes and once their goal light went on (but it was immediately ruled no goal, and video review confirmed it). I will say that we looked better than last year (when this game would have been 7-0 BC).
                              They historically take more penalties than us, and they did today. But, to their credit, they have the talent to kill off those penalties. Having said that, two five-minute majors and game misconducts against us in the final period weren’t our shining moments either. Our players were frustrated and it showed.
                              Someone else can discuss individual players’ strengths/weaknesses today. I don’t follow individual players as much as the team as a whole. We played well today against a team that is clearly more talented, top to bottom. I am sure that they are hoping for an appearance in Detroit, whereas we are hoping for an appearance in Lake Placid. That is a HUGE difference.

                                Oh, my pet peeve today... when we have the Power Play, is ‘shooting the puck in’ and hoping we ‘get to it first’ really the best we can do? Maybe against a BC it is, but it is frustrating to watch. Especially with as many power play chances as we had today.
