Quick mentioned UMass and Toot last night in a post game interview on the NHL network. I don't think there is any hiding UMass here at all, WBZ is mentioning Quick and UMass every :30 in the sports segment as well.

Shame about the hyphen part, but still a nice mention at a perfect moment even if Jon didn't say it himself.
It was Eddie Olczyk who said it, who's son plays for UMass. That certainly helped. When watching the 2010 olympics when Quick was on the team, he mentioned UMass and Toot Cahoon several times.

When we play in the same conference as UMass-Lowell, I don't mind hearing UMass-Amherst in a hockey context. Maybe that's just me.

When asked by Darren Pang who he would like to thank, Quick said "too many to mention" and he could have left it at that. Instead, he then went on to specifically mention Jon Gardner and Avon Old Farms, and then Toot Cahoon and UMass, as well as Bill Ranford (his goalie coach in LA).

Seemed pretty genuine to me.

WWEEEEEAAAAKKKK

Oh well, at least a Umass alum won the cup, even if it was the expanse of my team. Apparently Quick had some nice things to say to Marti afterwards as well!

Does anyone know who is responsible for http://www.bostondirtdogs.com/ ? I thought they were part of the globe, yet they've been nice to us...

They've currently got a nice shout-out to Quick up top.

They also had the pic of James Ihedigdo after the win at Montana in '06 (one that Jackman uses as his avatar).

I found a link to the postgame interview Dickie mentions above where Quick mentions UMass, Toot, and goaltending coach Jim Stewart.

It, and a ton of other Quick stuff, is on today's FTT post:

I believe Boston Dirt Dogs is run by a UMASS guy, but not 100% sure. They are affiliated with the Globe, but I don't think are a Globe site. BDD has always been kind to UMASS, when appropriate.


As a matter of fact, the top right corner of the site explains the Globe connection...

Even better. I would expect nothing less from you and Dickie Dunn!

Now, if we can just hear a few words from Percy then all will be right with the world of UMass hockey! 8)

Front page article on nhl.com is on Quick and a picture of him in his UMass jersey. Talks about his UMass time too. Pretty cool.

It may not be just you, but I am certainly on the other side of the coin with this one. They are UMASS Lowell, we are UMASS.

The UML fans hate the hyphen just as much as UMass fans. They'd be content simply going by "Lowell."

^The Ice Is Life and USCHO poster UML fans, who I take it are roughly 10+ years out of college.

In my experience, the more recent grads and students call it UMass Lowell and like the name.

No comments on Quick's profanity at the Cup celebration? I had figured everyone here would be up in arms about how he is such a poor representation of our university and a bad role model bla bla bla.

Oh, and he was hammered as well.
