      Basically, none. The Penn State network is about football, football, football, football, football, football, and football. Maybe during the basketball season there might be an occasional article about hoops. Hockey - never.
      One can see that by home much interest there is on this board from PSU fans.

        Do we have a new athletic director.?
        The article lists McElroy and Beattie as RPI athletic directors.

          According to the RPI directory, Kevin Beattie is listed as the Associate AD.
          Perhaps he is going to take over whenever Dr. McElroy steps down.

              Yes, PSU is a football school and no other sport will escape that shadow, but there appears to be strong support for ice hockey in terms of in-person attendance, at least relative to other schools.

                Would have loved to see the senior group stay for one more go, but I think that was always a bit of wishful thinking; these guys did enough to come back at all after losing an entire season of games and practice.

                Ture's interview showed a lot of class--I sensed some of the answers may have been diplomatic.

                The TU reporter is a basketball guy, so some of the more technical hockey follow-up questions were missed, e.g., where Ture might fit on the depth chart there and whether he will need to adjust to a different role and system. He was the go-to guy at RPI: first-line, #1 power-play etc. These adjustments can be tough to make in a transfer season. I sincerely hope he does really well! Except against the Gophers ;-)

                  They have a beautiful twin sheet hockey facility and average well north of 5,000 for their home games. Add in the fact that his PARENTS and even gasp....SCOUTS will be allowed to enter the building, I have no doubt it was an easy decision for Ture to make. I wish him the best of luck, he's a class act.

                            Nice. The ACHA conference ran through 4/23 in Naples. Smitty connecting with Puppa who I believe still resides in the Tampa area. Nice work Smitty !

                                Always good to see the coach with players from our past. Especially the ones who won a national championship.
                                Why isn't there a flag with Puppa's name on it in the rafters at HFH?
