    I really hope DU can beat the angry chicken chokers so we have more than one game in Tampa we have a real interest in. This will be our twelfth Frogurt Four. We sold off our priority tickets but managed to buy through the school (Thanks ticket staff!!!!) - Tampa was no fun last time except for the games. Like the other ten, no one brought us Frogurt, with or without sprinkles.

    I was following your game with Ferris State and when I looked over your starters for that game I was amazed at how small (relative) your team was and especially your defensive starters. Was I reading your lineup correctly? Gives hope for us ECAC folks who are recruiting smaller and smaller on defense. We have big teams in the ECAC like Cornell who we affectionately call the skating Pylons (Thank you Harvard) where everyone needs to be 6'4". You seem to be doing quite well with small and fast rather than big and slow. Am I correct on this?

    Yes, you're correct. Overall, we are not a very tall team (I think the average is 5/11) Our coach is big on having D men that can move quickly (and have good stick handling/shooting skills) and contribute at both ends of the ice. Zajak (a former winger) and Butcher are the strongest examples. I think this is a trend that is gaining around the country. You also see forwards getting bigger which is interesting. I think of the current BC team (a very different look than in past years).
    Go Pioneers!

    This seems very similar to the way Quinnipiac builds their team. We are not overly big but are skilled up front and the D can move the puck quickly in transition. I'd say even for a smaller team Quinnipiac is willing to throw the body around and block tons of shots and take teams space away.

    Of the 6 starting D-men:
    1 @ 5'7"
    2 over 6"
    3 @ 5'9" to 5'11'
    More importantly , average weight is 180--none at 200 or more. Pretty light for a defensive corps. At times that may be a problem.

    Incoming freshmen are both over 6'--1 at 6'5" This is unusual for sure.
    In the next 3 classes looks like one over and 1 under 6'.

    speaking of size:
    team averages
    BC 6'0" 187 lbs.
    UND 6'0" 193 lbs
    QU 5'11 3/4" 185 lbs.
    DU 5'11 1/2" 182 lbs.

    Are you saying that you have two six-inch GI Joe figures playing defense for DU? You'd think I would've noticed that before now, but here we are.

    It's part of Monty's secret attack strategy.

    I wonder if a banner for the Pios would be enough reason for Swami to come back, if only for a few celebratory comments. If they do beat UND and go on to win it all, that would take some of the sting out of it, at least. A very small some.
