Less than 5 months to go!
I don't think the thread title is long enough.
Agree. May I suggest
"UMaine: No Cure for the Summertime Blues but to BEAR the Months 'till October, and Long Live Red Who Will Lead Us to the Promised Land Once Again, Dontchya Know ??!!!!!
sure why not
Yeah, that's about as long of a thread title as the forum allows, unfortunately. I was just trying to get things rolling, but if someone wants to think of a more to the point thread title I wouldn't be offended
More schedule news: Quinnipiac is most likely dropping the game they had planned to play against UConn. That would mean the Q would have two games left, and an interest in playing a HEA team which Maine might be able to capitalize upon. They would make a much better opponent than an AHA team like Canisius.
However, I have noticed that the state flagship schools (except New Hampshire) have between 6-10 games remaining. Even if both Ohio State and Penn State step up and fill the schedules, it remains possible for Maine, Vermont, UConn and UMass to play non-conference games against each other. Hopefully that will not happen, though I am not sure how much worse it would be to play two games against one of those schools versus playing a pair against an AHA club...
just saw on twitter that Providence's Drew Brown has been diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma a rare bone cancer... cancer was detected during an MRI after he was injured against UNH in the HE Semis

All great men are dead and I'm not feeling well.
A Margarita! in every hand and another Margarita! in the other hand!
And stay off the lawn!
Based on this:
10/11/14 v Alaska^&
11/21/14 @Boston University*
11/22/14 @Boston College*
12/12/14 UHN (Portland)&
12/13/14 UHN (Manchester)&
01/23/15 New Hampshire*
What this means: Maine will play two non-conference games @UMass Jan 10+11. Maine will host UMass for the league contests, probably 10/31-11/1.
The Lowell and UConn contests will remain split - 1 home, 1 road - each season.
It looks like the reverse-engineered Hockey East schedule was pretty accurate, except for the BU/BC games in Boston.
32 games are now scheduled. Four games remain.
It looks like Maine will play 19 home games - all four remaining games. That means if Maine is going to get a B1G opponent, it will likely be Penn State as Michigan State already makes two trips to New England.
