    Six of one, half dozen of the other. Otherwise, I agree with the gist of what you're saying. A great/poor example of the "small people thinking" you invoke here is none other than MS7 entertaining the "if we lose" discussion a few posts earlier. That shouldn't even be in the discussion, never, not ever. As Herm Edwards once infamously said ... "You play to win the game".

    Lowell found a way to win tonight. BC found a way to win. UNH and UConn found a way to lose.

    In other news, the sun will rise in the East and set in the West. Pictures at Eleven.
    Fixed your post.

      Well couldn't agree with you more and I was fully aware of what UML was going to bring last night. Kind of think it's not really true (or fair) that UNH fans are 'small time thinkers'. We'd love to be in the NCAA place we always used to be. Right now, we're forced to settle for what we get (and be 100% fine with it) and believe me, it's not....fun. And it doesn't make it any easier when we're told the best we can do, all we can hope for, is a possible first round game at home? Yeah, that's small time thinking all right...and it's not coming from us.

      UNH is going to run the table...there, now I feel better haha!

          No, most UML fans think winning Hockey East is important, because not only is it a title, but it gets you into the NCAAs. It's just a step along the way. Sure, you can make the NCAAs without winning Hockey East, but its always better to pick up another trophy or two along the way.

            Not all. There was another post mocking the all teams make the playoffs format. I dislike the format, but it did make for some good scoreboard watching and standings page refreshing last night. The last minute or two of the BC/UMA game was great to watch. I was appalled to find myself rooting for the Eagles because of higher interest level for tonight’s games and hoping UMA misses out on the regular season title. With UNH’s seeding set and if BC wins earlier, I may find myself rooting for UML tonight.
            I will not be out cheered in my own building.

                Academic performance of athletes is a much bigger factor for UNH than it is for some athletics fans. Not looking to pick a fight here, just expectation setting.

                  Without question, isn't that why they come to UNH (or any school, 'cept a few I could mention) is to get an education? It's awesome to hear that our students in many sports at UNH excel in the classroom. From what I've garnered being on these boards UNH has a very tough admission requirement and I know we've lost some skaters because of it. That's the bar they've (AD , admission) has set at UNH and they do not waiver from it AND, they make no bones about the priority (you mentioned expectations) it holds. This is why we call them 'student - athletes'.

                      Yup! And when one sees the so-called ‘student-athletes’ at other institutions failing out of school and growing up to be unmarried and unmentored anchors on society one truly appreciates UNH’s public stance in today’s dark, cold existence...

                      Why do we continue to call them student-athletes, anyway? When, as UNH informs us regularly, it is impossible to be both...

                              • More uninspired Mike Snouza hockey on display tonight, once again totally failed at the ever lowering goals of the program.
