wow, I'm in the process of standing in a corrected fashion (I'm not into the whole brevity thing).
Every s'ship player across the country ought to tip their hat.

if the running story was from the ESPN broadcasts, well...... they don't know shit about college hockey, to be honest. Now, I could be wrong, but I assume they meant that DIII schools don't give scholarships as a general rule, and that's true AFAIK. HOWEVER, the DIII schools that sponsor DI hockey (LSSU, MTU, Clarkson, Union, Rensselaer, Ferris, CC I think is basically the list) get a special waiver from the NCAA to offer the full s'ships for the DI hockey teams.

What Union has done these last 3-5 years is amazing, considering 1) the location of the school in Schenectady, 2) the arena, and 3) that the school doesn't have a national rep (tho it is a good school) and 4) not a lot of NHL draftees. The current coach is only in his 3rd year, so I don't think he gets 100% of the credit but it's these last 3 years that they've played well deep into April. This team is no Cinderella in teh traditional sense of the term- they have been one of the top 5-10 teams for most of the last 3 years.
Their previous coach went to Providence, which had a good few years too, but this guy is working some magic for the Dutchmen. I thought the days of the small school were over in college hockey about 10 years ago when TV really became a big part of the sport and the big schools poured money into facilities like in Madison, and M-SP, Columbus, etc. Amazing.
As a side note, I'm not sure that they DON'T give our s'ships. the ECAC has several small schools and I'm pretty sure they give out the same as any other program for the hockey teams.

it's incrediby frustrating that they went 7-11 from 3. even if they go a respectable 5-11, we win.

Stauskas' missed FG at the end of the half, they had a guy with a toe on the line in the paint as he shot it.

|2 weeks 3 days ago||This is not a knock against||
This is not a knock against kentucky, which is a very talented group and have been playing well the last 3-4 weeks....
but we got this. our offense won't turn the ball over like yesterday (partly b/c UK doesn't force them). They are missing their best defender and are 90% freshman who haven't seen an offense this effecient and a team who can shoot like M. They don't defend the 3 well, don't have much transition D. typical young team, really. They are talented and will surely have a few OMG plays, but it's not like we haven't seen talented teams before. We can get their collective egos to get in a long range shooting contest at times- but we can do that in the context of the offense, they do it in the context of an all star game. they will have a few transition WOW plays and a few great plays in the paint, but I really think we win by 8+ by getting hot and making a couple 8-0 or 11-2 runs, perhaps spurred by a 1-3-1 phase or two on D.
A date with MSU in the title game is really looking like a terrifying possibility for my heart.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||I think this year's team was||
I think this year's team was decidedly lacking talent, both on the blue line and the forwards. This isn't the Michigan of 3-5 years ago that had healthy scratches of drafted defensemen and a 3rd line that most would ID as a top line. We have one top-level scorer, not much besides that, and 2-3 defensemen. We were 1 win away from the tournament and 3 wins over an awful PSU team from a 2 seed (or a 1?). That's frustrating (and given our start the ending was also frustrutating) but we we'ren't a turrible team this year. Last year was different, but firing this coach after this year would be a bit over the top.
Looks like the team will be deeper AND more talented and with known commodities in goal next year. things look up for 14-15.

So shall we hire all those other MTU coaches too then? They must be just as great of coaches as Pearson.

So what evidence to you have that red has early onset dementia, is not doing any coaching, recruiting in the off season or during the season? I ask b/c he's obviously not in the press box on game day, so it has to be one of these other things. Unless you're making the comparison based only on age, in which case hey we all act like idiots once in a while.

Jesus, PRIOR to those two titles, Berenson got to the title game exactly ZERO times. Probably should have fired him then.
