    Re: Ways to improve???

    UMASS gets all the publicity in Springfield. Check their local newspaper. It's really going to take a cheerleader on one of the news stations for sports, or in the newspaper.

      3) UMass opted to play two non-US exhibitions rather than a home date with the physically closest D-I team to them;

      It seems that the "nobody wants to play AIC" hypothesis has at least some observational merit behind it.
      if I were UMass I wouldn't play AIC... Springfield is their market... AIC beating UMass would just serve to give AIC an opportunity... same reason UConn bball won't schedule UMass anymore.

        Well, tonight's game sure helped. 6-2 vs RIT, with one of their best players being given a game misconduct. They also survived a 2 minute 5-3 (with the help of only one post)

            BC would probably never play AIC... maybe as an exhibition game - though i have never seen an exhibition game that wasnt against canada or a us national team.

              Meisner is proving to be a goalie that can steal games. The AIC offense is better than years past. IF the young players continue to develop, they will be a pretty good team. They have 4 wins already after only 5 last year.
