    I would surmise the academics in Troy might deter many of the top players from a trip up the hill. When i applied my guidance counselor from high school told my father that even Phys Ed at RPI was a difficult course.

      Just thought any team that plays at an arena named after Werner Von Braun might give rise to hope... 😀

        I don't think this is true at all. Why are Cornell and Harvard able to bring in top recruits if this is the case? Plus all the athletes end up as Business and Management majors anyways, which is not a particularly challenging curriculum

          They have Ivy League name recognition. If you’re a kid in Canada who wants to play hockey, outside of the five or six “hockey factories,” the next tier is the Ivies.

          Also, you may think it’s easy, but chances are you’ll be working for a business major someday

            An athletic department's relationship with the admissions office can differ school-by-school. I agree with you in the sense that this is generally not an issue for RPI, although I am sure you could find examples on the borderlines where a player that can't get in gets in elsewhere.

            I have no opinion on which majors are easy or hard, but I like that the team does a good job graduating players. And I have seen a few engineering majors and pre-med guys play big roles for RPI hockey over the years.

              I know that would be my calculus, but I am not sure how true this is as a general matter among men's hockey players. Have just met a good number of players over the years who turned down Ivies for schools much further down in the US News rankings.

                I assume the LIU athletic director is making a few phone calls to Alabama over the last few days.

                    I think you are responding to a comment other than mine.

                          Some did but several did not.

                          Edit: And majoring in business/management doesn't imply that one has people skills or any skills for that matter.

                            Today is 25 May 2020. There are 131 days until RPI's next game.


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

                              Ralph, I am not sure that business majors would fit in where you worked.

                                Not in the technical areas, but in budget and other support offices.
