  • It was definitely a weird game RB. BTW, I think we may have one of the largest number of players on any DIII team. When they first came out I thought they were swarming the field. However, and i could be way off on this, we do not seem to have that much individual size. Both offensive and defensive lines seem smaller than in past years. Not sure how that compares to Hobart and Union but perhaps as the season goes on the roster will show the boys as gaining some weight!
    That last drive benefited from two long penalties against the opponent in addition to that final tipped pass which end up scoring the sinning TD. If we won with a bit of good fortune, so be it. Over the years we have certainly lost many times because of the lack of such.

    • Question for anyone who knows (??Ralph)- because this first hockey game will be an exhibition, even though against a Division I and league foe, will any of the statistics count??

          Either RPI TV invested in much better crowd microphones or there was a really good and loud crowd on hand. With all of the COVID restrictions I hope they emphasize athletic contests as a way to get out of the dorms and support fellow students.

              I noted what you did- there did seem to be a lot of support noise. Perhaps the microphones were just situated near the only 4 or 5 people attending? Odd looking across and seeing totally empty stands except for one lone person.

                Sez-thanks for the answer. Since nothing will count, if I was on the ice I don't think I would take any extra chance that might lead to a season ending injury. i have said this before but usually in referring to the Mayor's Trophy Game. There are a lot of reasons to try to get a win over Union in this exhibition but after all, it is meaningless. Every weekend after that game is far more important. I would just like to see everyone get some ice time and a bit of experience.

                  No problem DrD. I'm sure they think the same. The exhibition is always less intense and more about shaking off rust

                  • It sounds like this season they are going to let students attend the games for free to promote attendance

                      I noticed the lack of visitors and was going to make a snide remark about the fan base of a NJ commuter school when I remembered that we wouldn’t let them in. I thought about how ****ed I’d be if I drove 150 miles only to be told I couldn’t even buy a ticket. I guess I’d watch the game from the hill behind the visitor’s side and swear at RPI.

                      On a (barely) related note, Montclair State is the home of New York Red Bulls 2, the reserve (minor league) team for the MLS side. Last year they were playing Hartford in a (for them) big game and COVID blocked admission so the Hartford supporters set up shop in the parking garage overlooking the stadium.

                      Lacking a direct view into the rink, does anyone have a small generator or inverter and 50”+ TV to set up outside HFH for a tailgate and RPI TV viewing party?

                          True - but then again this is Union we are playing and not a Canadian school like we have done so many times. I just hope that no one is thinking of this as a rivalry type game or trying to set a precedent for the 3 or more games later this year. When younger (much younger) I played this game and something strange happens once you step onto the ice. Off the ice you can remain a gentleman but once you get out there and take the first hit, you can forget about all of that and go out and just try to score and hit as hard as you can. Should make for an interesting exercise this year!

                            If RPI-TV is doing the football home games, can we expect (hope?) that they'll be allowed to broadcast the HFH games ? Or would that be asking too much from the dictator ?

                              I would think so, but she could say that an enclosed venue is different from an open one.
