    Here's the Talkin' Neers episode for those interested. Realized I forgot to post it here last night.

      • I wonder if our rival coach in Schenectady is about to be "Addesa-ed." He certainly has the type of personality that would make on-campus enemies as Mike did and the championship has faded enough into the past that his supporters won't be able to defend him.

            It took them 8 years since he tried to fight SA.

            Seriously, I do wonder what caused this.

                I doubt that Union would have done anything like this unless it was for something quite substantial. You do not take this kind of step for getting caught picking your nose.

                  Sorry to hear this news. I hope for the team's sake that they get to the bottom of things in short order.

                      • Union today on being able to offer scholarships:

                        "The ability to offer scholarships is arguably the most pivotal moment in the history of ice hockey at Union since the decision in 1991 for the men's team to jump from Division III to Division I."

                        1. If it's that important, they ought to go find the people responsible for not being able to do it and give them a serious talking to.

                        2. More pivotal than winning a national championship? Uh, OK.

                        • I hate to say it but i think we over-rated this team. I know it's unrealistic to expect a team to play flat out for 60 minutes, but it's getting tiring to see them skate and press for 15-20 minutes a game and cruise through the rest. I wonder if its a gap in leadership. Ture Linden is one of my favorite players in that he plays a solid 2-way game and I'll bet is a real leader in the locker room. He's a Patrice Bergeron type. But sometimes you need to complement that kind of leader with a guy that can shake things up on the ice with a high-speed hustle play or a hit - a Brad Marchand type that can get the team going and change momentum. Yes, it's probably unfair to use as examples NHL all-stars and big-time scorers, but one of my favorite RPI leaders of the second type was CJ Lee, who was hardly a big goal scorer but seemed to always skate hard and generate a lot of key hustle plays.

                            I totally agree with you. The fourth line is supposed to bring hustle and fight to the game. Make the first three lines take notice and follow their example. We just don't seem to have that with this team.
                            We really could use a CJ Lee, he brought it every shift.
                            No one on this team comes close.
