      I've been told the original Neumann thread was off the charts with popularity. I've been told the architect was MICZamboni and much of the success of the program is due to the attention that this forum has given it.

        "The Snack Bar Ain't Open: Dining Recomendations-Fine or Otherwise" thread deserves a place in history

          The Laura Hurd Remeberance thread should be nominated and archived somewhere if it isn't already. I remember visiting the thread some time ago but not sure how I came across it....IIRC idea of the The Laura Hurd Award was born from this thread.

            It is here, if you'd like to revisit it.

                The posters maybe, the threads not so much

                  The thread a couple of years back on what you need to know about recruiting had a lot of useful information new people would benefit from.

                    Maybe not Hall of Fame material, but I always love reading posts by "fans" (short for fanatic...which to me means someone who supports a cause regardless of the evidence). A few years back there was a poster who tried (tongue in cheek?) to create the impression that the Neumann Div 3 womens program was on the verge of a dynasty. The posts were always entertaining and you were never quite sure whether the (guy/gal) had inside knowledge or was just blowing smoke. Always irresistible reading in any event. Can anyone remind me who that was and whether he/she is still around?

                      I think that was MICZamboni. The posts and responses were entertaining. The evidence at the time indicated (to me anyway) that there was some smoke being blown.

                      Camman15 was steadfast in agreement and support of MICZ's impending Neumann dynasty theory.

                      Best I can recall anyway.

                        You are correct Brooky. I miss these guys (gals?). The USCHO forums have too much well reasoned analysis of teams and games and not quite enough "fans" (fanatics). Definition of fanatic from no less an authority than Wikipedia , : "marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion". Good description of the (brief) Neumann women's hockey bandwagon.

                            When I saw Hab's post, I was thinking well there are still a few left.

                              They were a dynasty. Just a dynasty without the W's!!!
