  • USCHO Front Page Picture / Story

    Is this the picture we're going to be subject to for the rest of the summer?

    I know that each summer, they are a little more frequent than the previous summer in regards to changing the article. A couple years ago, it was the same picture from the end of the season until some time in August! I must say, though, that it bugs me.

    Clearly, there's not as much going on in college hockey right now. What I don't get is why an article that really only affects a portion of the country is left up on the U.S. college hockey website, for going over a week now. Sure, it was interesting to me that a conference is changing their playoff format (bad change, IMHO, by the way), and I read the article; but if we're going to see the same picture for weeks / months at a time, I'd rather it was something that was more widely relevant.

    In another thread, a poster commented how short-lived the BC National Championship picture was on the front page. To me, if you're going to leave anything up for weeks at a time over the summer, it should be at least something regarding the national champion of the sport of you cover.

    I'm just trying to spark a new conversation, work is quiet this week . . . but c'mon, USCHO people, change it up a little bit . . .
    I haven't been on here in a year...
    Now I'm a dad. Holy crap.

    It's terrible I agree.

    Where's the story on the BU guys getting tossed? The BC guys getting in trouble?

    How about a story on the Worlds?

    I think USCHO takes the summer off.

      There was a story about the BC kids last week. I do think that whatever teams win the national title (men's/womens) , they should get a front page pic for the summer.

            Although I agree that he is inept, I think the point was, why didn't those stories get the top spot, rather than just a link on the side column . . .

            . . . they may have deserved a day or two on the front page, in the main story spot. But my point was more that whatever picture / story gets left up for a long time should be something of national relevance.

              It won't be the Alaska story for the whole summer...there will be one or two stories over the summer...

              Either way...who really cares?

                            Hey jcarter, take your hands out of your pants while looking at pictures of elephantwalking and scroll that little mouse to the right a little bit on the front page, genius.

                              Hey genius,

                              The title of the thread is " USCHO Front Page Picture / Story "

                              great you pulled a LINK. I guess at BC a "link" is considered a story but in the rest of the world it's considered a link. I suppose since you idiots can't write more then a phrase or two at a time, they are forced to accept links as stories. I can see the confusion.

                              I suppose that's why you are all so good at writing haiku's too huh?


                              But, if you wanted you could start a thread that said
                              USCHO Front Page Links

                              Then you would be correct. As for now you are wrong and you just look like a turd nugget trying to get around just simple admitting it. What a doochebag. You forum stalk me just looking and searching for some type of error in one of my posts so you can point it out. I mean really? Have you nothing better to do loser? It's getting a little freaky too......bordering on stalking. It's going to start getting reported. Got it?
