Will you be able to get in on the scores thread this season? Even if only during the intermissions, your input would be of real interest during the games.
Thank you guys for all the positive feedback! I am making a big effort this season to get more students interested in the team, and I hope the team being more successful will coincide with the efforts to really boost it. We posted a breakdown of the out-of-conference schedule this morning. I won't post here anymore with our articles since I do not want to spam with the regular previews and analysis. I recommend that you follow Red Army on twitter if you want to be updated whenever we release a new article.

I noticed in the Ch. 13 preview piece that one of the forwards is wearing a yellow helmet (no contact I'm assuming ??). My eyes aren't nearly good enough to tell who it is, perhaps Ashbrook.

CHN released their first podcast of the season. A question asked towards the end at about 47:50 is which teams picked to finish outside of the top 5 of their conference that will be better than expected and make some noise. RPI is mentioned at about 54:15 for the ECAC and is talked about for about a minute.
In honor of Simon Kjellberg and Kendra Farole, today is 3 October 2019. There are 2 days until RPI's next game.
This is based upon 5 October 2019 for the start of next season.
Has anyone noticed that Brock has a Friday night game in St. Catherines at 7:15 P.M. It will be done at around 9:45 P.M. Add about another 45 minuted to shower, dress and load the equipment on the bus and its' around 10:30 P.M. Then its' about 6 hours to Troy making there arrival time at a hotel about 4:30 A.M. on Saturday.
Only other choice they have is to go home and board the bus at around 6:00 A.M. on Saturday and arrive in Troy at about noon for a 4 P.M. game.
Either option spells no sleep, little sleep nor getting the right kind of sleep.
They should be little more than zombies by the time warm up starts at the Field House on Saturday.
Kind of leaves us with little in the way of excuses if we do not at least look good despite it being our very first game and their fifth.
Keep the thoughts coming though, very much appreciated.
