    It's not like you actually share a primary color with Cornell and actually "need" your fans to wear white. Save your "whiteout" for when you play a team that wears garnet.

      Good point, but by those guidelines Union would never get to whiteout anyone.

      IIRC last years whiteout was against Princeton and fans received a white t-shirt. This year's whiteout gift is a rally towel.

        At least it isn't a pair of white gloves.

          Colgate wears Garnet (or at least something very close to it.)

            Teams use the *insert color* out for a big game, not when an opposing fan base has a similar color. Growing up in Pennsylvania, my first thought turns to PSU and their white outs. After losing to Cornell in the ECAC championship game last season, and with them climbing the ecac standings, this constitutes a big game for us.

                So, you're saying that the Whiteout is more of a lame attempt to pump up fans with a random gift (a la the BRF!) than an attempt to encourage fans to show up in white because their opponent is wearing a similar color. In other words, "We're not copying this promotion of yours, we're copying that other one!" The fact that they're playing the same team that we are when we're doing our Whiteout must be pure coincidence then.

                  I was not aware you guys were doing a whiteout this weekend. Then I hope our ripoff leads to lots of white in the rinks and 0 points for Cornell

                    I'll take this report with the proverbial, "grain of salt", considering CJ's injury is said here to be a knee injury http://www.collegehockeynews.com/news/scratches.php

                      This is a big game for Cornell as well, though it's taking us older fans a while to wrap our heads around it. There's nothing to prevent this from becoming a strong rivalry and hopefully our fans won't display the sort of arrogance one associates with say BC or Minnesota. If a team's ahead of you in both the standings and the PWR that team is a serious competitor, and all bygone years' hardware are neither jot nor tittle. Union and RPI both fit the bill and we will be fortunate to escape this trip unswept.

                      These games are going to test whether Cornell's recent surge was just the by-product of an easy stretch or whether we really are playing better and bringing a young team together under The System. I hope we take at least 1 point this weekend. 2 or more is the amen break.

                                RPI was good, Colgate was better ! Last game was the same 2-1 OT. Gate outshot you both games !
                                It all starts with the goaltending.
