  • Re: RPI 2020 Off-season: Off-season Cancelled

    I remember after the season opener that we didn't have any highlights of the UMass game because UMass only posted highlights of their own goals
    But after seeing the highlight video for Mike Gornall, it seems like there are some after all. Unfortunately, these still do not show the Polino goal, but they at least have Dubinsky's and Mahshie's first career tallies! This is from UMass's student newspaper. https://youtu.be/tptZFw8uYFU

      I think Round 3 begins tomorrow. Stay tuned.

      15th seeds have more fun!
      Let's not celebrate until the final buzzer.

      Yes, the next round begins tomorrow. It is the 4th round or The Great Eight.

        Definitely one cool cat. Part of a successful goalie's profile.
        Of course, he probably has professional experience.

        BTW, it made at least one news show https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nDHFlEwwKg from a soccer version of the video.

              As of now, RPI is planning on opening in the Fall and competing athletically, but I would not be surprised if they start with no fans allowed at the games. It would be unfortunate, but I will take any type of season given to us.
              Small D3 institutions, like RPI, banning fans from D3 games is not really all that big a deal to the institution. The budgets for those sports are essentially declared a virtual total loss the day they are established anyway. Knowing this, it is easy to imagine that a significant number of D3 institutions will do exactly that. The income passed on and lost by doing this is basically irrelevant or, in IRS or accounting lingo, nominal and gratuitous.

              However, a small D3 school taking on the huge financial commitment necessary to run a play up D1 sport and then playing to no fans for any or all of the season does not appear to be a very realistic option. Costs involved would pretty much remain very high but there would be virtually no revenue to even partially offset those costs. No ticket sales income, no parking lot income, no game program income, no advertising in the game program income, no booster club donation income, no concession stand rental or sales income and, of course, no corporate advertising on either the boards, the ice or the video board income. Passing on and losing this level of income is akin to economic kamikaze suicide.

              Not really all that sure that allowing fans in the building would do all that much good either. Some people seem so spooked by the present circumstances that they may not even show up to be part of a sizeable crowd in the foreseeable future anyway. Are there enough people left that wish to live their lives as normally as possible and spend their money to go to games??? Not a clue.

              Complicating things further, during a recent video town hall, a certain “CEO” appeared to hint that members of the institution’s community will be required to have their “readings” measured regularly this coming fall. In all probably, only those with their livelihoods or education on the line will put up with that. However, do not believe that most fans merely looking for a night of entertainment will put with that behavior for a second. Just do not see fans waiting in a long line six feet apart so they can eventually get to a complete stranger whose competence, capabilities and even credentials are unknown to the fan and allow that individual to stick a medical device whose origin and past whereabouts are also unknown in said fans mouth or ear. Want to see what making a bee line for the car looks like??? No, do not believe all that many will wear a mask for two and a half hours merely for the sake of entertainment either. Hard enough to get by for 20 to 25 minutes in a supermarket with one of those things on. Forget two and a half hours.

              Hinting that small schools just run their D3 programs that will lose about the same money with or without fans and suspend their play up sport until it is no longer economic suicide to run it??? Maybe, maybe not. Just stating the economic reality facts with some speculation spliced in as to what could happen with some of the intangibles, namely human behavior.

              Glad decisions I have to make are limited to show up there or don’t show up there. Spend my money there or don’t spend my money there. No way would I want to be the one having to make any decisions about ANYTHING else addressed above.

                  It has been down, but not to the point where we can do that. HFH holds over 4500. Just about every single night they have at least 2500 in the building. And how do they determine who sits where, especially for season ticket holders? Add BRF to the equation and you would really have a seating nightmare.

                    If collegians could have been included in our list of greatest Capital Region hockey players, we would have an embarrassment of riches with the likes of former RPI stars Adam Oates and Joe Juneau and Union defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, whose plus-7 rating in the 2014 NCAA championship game is one of the most underappreciated feats in sports........The parameters of our “Mount Rushmore” sports series state that we’re evaluating only those who were born and/or raised in the Capital Region, and there is a pretty good talent pool to choose from. https://www.timesunion.com/hockey/ar...m_campaign=CMS

                      Not only are you so correct but what parent will sit a row or a seat away from there own child. Ditto grandparents- grandchildren, anybody with a date, any couple, spouses or any groups that have been sitting together for years. No one will do that just because someone with a title or position decided they think it is a good idea. The first time anyone tried to prevent you from doing any of the preceding will probably result in an immediate departure with no subsequent purchases. Not a very good idea!!!

                        They could allow families to be together but separate them from others. This is all quite hypothetical anyway.

                          Today is 22 May 2020. There are 134 days until RPI's next game.


                          This is based upon 3 October 2020 for the start of next season.

                            That does illustrate the fact that RPI does not get the best local players, although Murley and Cavosie were honorable mentions.
