    Both fights are available on YouTube if you want to see HFH set up for boxing.

    The Ferguson fight was notable because Ferguson was actually disqualified for excessive holding/refusing to box, but that was later changed to a TKO to maintain Tyson's KO streak at the time, or so the story goes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM-74p4CvBI

    The Hosea fight, was not a national broadcast (Hosea was a weak opponent) and ended more conventionally with a KO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glBP8RhPsNk

      I voted for Muzzati out of RPI loyalty but how does the nomination process work at this stage? Is he the one put forth by RPI, just curious?

          Eric Healey needs to be on the short list - he is often overlooked. Career: 82G-86A-168 Pts A stellar 4 year career and Hobey finalist as a senior.

          Pothier has long been a personal favorite - a leader in Troy and the only RPI I ever correctly predicted would have an NHL career ! HA HA

            In unrelated but related news, the new ice rink at Mohawk Harbor in Schenectady appears to becoming reality with the latest announcement of tax payer money being thrown at it by the County and City.
            Expected to break ground this Spring, with completion in time for the 25-26 season. So Union will have a flashy new rink to market to recruits. With that said, has anyone heard anything about the study RPI was performing on the HFH and future renovation vs. replacement ?

              Union will have a flashy new rink and scholarships for recruiting look out!
              I’m very curious about what the study finds renovation or replacement. I love the HFH but I think it’s time for a new barn. Fieldhouse needs a significant gut job. I wonder if the cost of such work would be close to the cost of a new barn?
              I don’t think we need something that seats almost 5k. Something closer to 3200-3500 would be sufficient.

                  15-3 SOG after 1. I’m amazed how slow we are compared to Princeton. Our boys look like they have cement shoes on.

                    3-2 RPI at the end of the second and they almost scored a PK goal? What a crazy bizarro period!

                      Sounds nice, but and no matter how nice, can anyone contribute anything to compiling the list of programs who enjoy sustained and consistent success playing home games in a facility in no way even remotely connected to the campus proper. In this case the rink would be on the VERY VERY extreme edge of walking distance and that would be both ways. Not exactly a strong student drawing card on cold and windy winter nights.

                      If a program can be redefined by building a rink on a river that makes going to a game a long walk for students then great!!! Troy has a riverfront too.

                        I did not watch the game last night as I went to the women’s game instead. But looking at the box score it appears Watson kept them in the game facing 43 shots and giving up 3 goals whereas Princeton gave up 4 facing only 14 shots. I have to wonder what Watson will do? There are 14 seniors/ graduate students on this team. Will he stick around to see what the new recruits bring? Or enter the portal where he likely will be able to be a part of a team with a higher chance of success?

                          Sorry I misspoke . 12 seniors/ grad students. Not sure it makes much of a difference.

                            It's about 15 minutes walk from the center of Union's campus to the Mohawk Harbor location. Long walk? Extreme edge of walking distance? It's basically the same as from the Quad, North Hall, etc., to the Field House at RPI.

                            And players may well be more interested in playing in a brand new rink than turned off by that modest distance.

                            As for examples, Duluth moved to an off-campus (by three miles) rink in 2010 and have done well since, Minnesota State plays off campus, etc. I don't think this is a death sentence for Union hockey.

                              might be the same distance walking wise, but much, much, more dangerous with traffic going to the Casino and soon to be ice rink.

                                And it’s downhill to the new rink and a decent walk uphill going back.
