    A lot of fans disguised as empty seats.

    Very sad...maybe twenty students there and 2-300 people.

    Mitch Benson led the team out onto the ice for tonight’s pre-game warm-up. Andrew Farrier and Will Friend backing him up.

    Cornell pep band and Colgate pep band both in the house.

    Alex Young scores for ‘Gate late in the period.

    Colgate 9, Cornell 6, SOG after one.
    Colgate 1, Cornell 0, score after one.

    Not many shots by either team. Defensive lapses by both teams. Goaltending looks solid by both teams.

    8 seconds into the second period, Cornell tied it up.

    PPG for ‘Gate by Griffin Lunn.

    Colgate 16, Cornell 15, SOG after two.
    Colgate 2, Cornell 1, score after two.

    Less than a minute into the period, Cornell scored.

    Colgate with PPG by Manderville.

    Cornell 29, Colgate 24, SOG final.
    Colgate 3, Cornell 2, score final.

    Usually the only sold out game of the year, probably not this year.

    Good update IBT...rather sad to see the continuing decline of ECAC hockey...AGAIN, it's four decent to good teams and then (really) no difference between teams 5 through 12, ALL OF WHICH are in the lower third of the PairWise (including #55, #56, #57)...we're starting to look like the Patriot League in football...

    PairWise Rankings (PWR) for Colgate and 2021-22 opponents out of 59 NCAA D-1 MIH programs (as of 2/2/22)...

    3-Western Michigan, 6-Quinnipiac,


    17-Merrimack, 18-Clarkson, 21-Cornell, 23-Arizona State, 25-Harvard, 25-Connecticut, 28-Northern Michigan, 39-RIT, 41-Union, 43-RPI,
    44-Colgate, 45-Saint Lawrence, 46-Princeton, 55-Brown, 56-Yale, 57-Dartmouth, 59-Vermont.

    No major swings this week, though Cornell is slowly falling in the PWR.

    Colgate's next opponent... Cornell: home (February 4) and away (February 5).

    Our only opponent this year that was in the 16-team 2021 NCAA tourney was Quinnipiac.
    Our only opponents next year that are in the 16-team 2022 NCAA tourney might be Western Michigan (away 2x) and Quinnipiac (home, away).

    Sorry to be so grumpy; if anyone has tangible reason for hope, please let me know.

    Lastly, I think it was Rainman who mentioned the Jacob Panetta incident in the ECHL. I am not going to wade into those waters, but after doing a deep dive on it last week, I will simply say that I found the whole thing to be utterly fascinating.

    But we turned a corner!

    True, we were twenty minutes from being all alone in 12th place, and little late game magic helped us defeat the last place team in the league down its top 3 centers at home in overtime. As I read that, I am trying to get excited about what this portends for the future, but I just can’t get there.

    Maybe the corner is the same one the band turned down in “Animal House”.

    And let’s for argument’s sake suppose somehow we DO manage to win those games. What would that mean, really? The program is magically on solid footing? I don’t think so. Even winning those games would be an upset against the grain. Outliers .

    So although it would be supremely satisfying to beat the Quinnipiacs and Cornells of the world, in my opinion unless we get to the point where that is the expectation rather than a Hail Mary, it simply isn’t good enough.

    Quinnipiac created a program out of whole cloth. Union won a national title. Yale won a National title. We just keep trucking along hoping to be good enough to be in the middle four. Talk about low expectations.

    I just don’t see what tangible evidence there is to think we are somehow going to beat Quinnipiac and Cornell. We haven’t won a game in regulation since December. We haven’t beaten a team with a winning record since October (and those teams [RIT, Merrimack and Arizona State] are each barely over .500). Don’t even get me started on our record versus quality opponents over the past decade or so. Sure, it’s the ECAC and anything can happen on any given night, but all the signs trend negative for us.

    I know Cornell can be beaten, but mark me down as a ‘naysayer’ for this weekend’s games (in this roller-coaster of a season). I just don’t see how our defense is going to hold them at bay. I have faith in our goaltending, but we can’t ask them to do everything. They need support and smart play in front of them.
    As for the timing of the games, I leave at 6 ayem Sunday for Lorton, Va., and the Amtrak AutoTrain to Sanford, Fla. I will get home just in time for Clarkson at Colgate, if all goes well.
    Go ‘Gate!!
