Re: State of the Progam

Too bad Bell will make a lot money for ruining a proud program. It is what it is... This quote is a head scratcher. It’s not like Bell took over for Brown and drove the team into the ground. The team has been bad for quite some time. A few of Whipple’s seasons could be called mediocre I guess, but ...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Bell needs at least one more year. If it’s the same shit at the end of next season with no improvement can him like Molnar. Also would be interested to know what the selling point is for this coaching position. Old stadium, small fan base, small budget, no conference, in an area where high school fo...

Carvel said that centers haven’t scored a goal this season. Team misses Pritchard and Boeing too

Re: 2019-20 Season

PSA: if you’re going to games watch the puck. A person in my section wasn’t paying attention and got hit with one tonight in the head. No one who posts here. They’re fine, but it’s a good reminder. I thought Merrimack played very well tonight after the first period. Blocked tons of shots, generated ...

Re: State of the Progam

Legitimate good news from the program. Brings the season total up to two. 3 if you count the first quarter lead against Rutgers.

Re: 2019-20 Season

My gut disagrees tbh. It’s roughly a quarter of the regular season. Not exactly insignificant.

I think the arguments you make contradict more the “must win” for hockey East positioning tbh.

Regardless I’m very happy they won tonight. On to Merrimack. Bring a tape measure this time. :lol:

Re: 2019-20 Season

I agree. Also the pairwise, dropped down to 27. And I know most people are gonna tell me it’s too early to worry, but I wonder how many teams worked their way up from the bottom half at thanksgiving for example, to an at large bid.

Re: Game 8 - UMass at UNH Sunday 1 pm

Frustrating for many reasons. Not the least of which (to me anyways) is it knocks UMass out of the top 16 of the pairwise. With the exception of right after they lost to NU the first time, this is basically the first time UMass isn’t in the top 16 since the 17-18 season. I hope like hell we don’t lo...

Re: The secular decline of football in high school

Disagree. It has to do with recruiting.

As to 78’s comments, It should be illegal to play tackle football for 8 and 9 year olds. Let them play flag if they’d like but that’s terrible to have them tackle and get brain trauma so young.

Re: Game 10: "The Greatest Gameday Experience in America"

I think that a warrior like Pete Brock is So credible, removing him from the broadcast would say a lot about this whole mess called being an FBS 'wannabe', and more about a '1984' sports administration re; the failure of the FBS move. Frankly, if the most rabid FBS fan base on this site could not g...

Re: The secular decline of football in high school

Good. There should be a decline. It’s a very violent game and there are long term repercussions from playing, even at the high school level. If I had kids there’s no way in hell I’d let them play even a down of tackle football. I don’t really understand why a 14 year old’s parents lets them play wit...

Re: Game 10: "The Greatest Gameday Experience in America"

Listened for the first time all season because I don’t have CBSSports. I only made it through the first half before shutting it off, but I wondered if this was the first football game Jay Burnham (sp?) had ever watched. Seemed confused on several plays. Had to ask his color guy about the rules at le...

Re: Game 10: "The Greatest Gameday Experience in America"

Was toying with the idea of going. Saw hockey at Army once, and enjoyed a rare OT win under Michelleto. Also enjoyed the campus. Would be nice to see a football game there. Then my car had mercy on my soul today and broke down on the way to work. It’s been an extremely dependable car, and now has my...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Everyone, I have the solution. I've been saying it for years. Make Hockey East an All Sports Conference. Still call the conference Hockey East. Force the FCS Hockey East Schools to be FBS Hockey East Football Conference (FBS) UMass UConn Boston College Maine UNH Merrimack Holy Cross (women's Hockey ...
