    Leave Anchorage once in a while and you will find something new, ALASKA.

    Brutal home schedule IMO. All the teams on here are tough.

    For those too lazy to look, we have Minnesota, St. Cloud State, Minnesota-Duluth, Wisconsin, Mankato, Colorado College, and UAF. Don't forget the Kendall Classic as well.

    Not to mention two neutral site games in the Brice Goal Rush at UA_.

    I know it's been a while since I've posted in a UAA-related thread, and perhaps, with me being an adult and elsewhere now, I'm officially a little out of the loop. And, yes, I know that we rarely talk about bouncyball here for obvious reasons. But I'm enraged and really need to vent.

    Between the new on-campus sports complex not having ice and an absolutely wretched 2012 Great Alaska Shootout field that, mind you, was aided by a $2 million state subsidy, I am convinced Steve Cobb's brain is actually a rancid jar of apple sauce.

    Cobb has taken everything I loved about UAA athletics back when I was a kid and has turned it all into an enormous pile of horse poop.

    That is all. May you all have a great day. I'm going to go vomit with rage.

    Correct.

    Blame the NCAA's retooling of preseason tournament rules for the demise of the Shootout. The Shootout used to be "it" ... now there's lots of "its".

    Blame ESPN for pulling the plug on the TV contract too.

    This year's field is somehow worse than last year's IMO. At least last year we had three NCAA tournament teams in New Mexico State, Murray State, and Southern Mississippi.

    For anyone wondering, this year's field for men is UAA, UC Riverside, Belmont, Loyola Marymount, Oral Roberts, Texas State, Charlotte, and Northeastern. The women's field is UAA, Prarie View A&M, Utah State, and a team TBA.

    They mentioned that UAA only graduated 4 players, but "the losses keep piling up", and then mentioned Scheid leaving. Who else do we know for sure has left? JJ you must have a pulse on this??

    Hey Seawolves fans, I'm quietly considering a trip up there again, though it is very far from certain. I have a quick question in regards to tickets, I know I wouldn't have to pre-buy tickets, and could get them when I'm there, but if I wanted to buy them ahead of time, when do they go on sale, and how early would I be able to have actual tickets shipped to me?
    Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

    RIP - Kirby

    I'm not sure when they go on sale but if you want, call the ticketing department @ 9077861293.
