    It happens that forum participants move on. That's just natural. Perhaps we need to publicize the forum to newer RIT fans to get some new blood in.

    It's worse than that.... Remember this game when we're late into the season, will probably come back to haunt the team. Such a sad way to Lose a game

    Good for Robert Morris, taking advantage of RITs lack of respect and professionalism. I hope this loss bites a few players in the *****. Such lack of
    respect. RIT got what they deserved... Such a shame... Easy 2 points out the window. Hopefully Coach will crush some souls.

    Post game TV interview with Chase Norrish. I think he's was pretty embarrassed.. Sad thing was it was upperclassmen who were the biggest offenders.

    On a positive note, the Freshmen look awfully good though.

    As he should be. RIT has never let a lead like that slip away. Good thing UCONN is coming to town to teach a lesson on respect. 5-1... I hope attitudes change on this team.

    Didn't see the game other than watching the updates on my phone..I was at a preseason game between the Florida Panthers and NJ Devils and telling anyone around me how good RIT seems to be after seeing them up 5-1. I haven't seen the box did coach call a timeout in that second period slippery slope when the wheels seemed to fall off or did it happen so fast that it was 5-5 before anyone knew it?

    Three OOC games coming up then Bentley on the schedule. Next five games should tell us a bit about the leadership on this team. I have faith and hope this was just an early season fluke. RoMo only had 2 shots in the 3rd and still managed to get one in. Ouch.

    5-5 before anyone knew it... 5 on 3... they score.. commit another penalty, back to 5 on 3. 3 straight goals like that.. and then the last one they were able to score before RIT could commit yet another penalty, and make it 5 on 3 again. 4 goals in just over 2 minutes.

    They scored their goals all in rapid succession thanks to a parade to the box by RIT. I believe RMU got two separate 5v3 oppurtunities (both of which ended up as goals) as well as 5v4s in between. I don't think you could really argue that any of the calls were bad either - some guys were just making really bad choices. Chase Norrish, who is an upper classmen and Captain on this team decided that a 5v4 PK was an excellent time to board a guy and hand them a 5v3 which they scored on.

    All in all you can't really fault Rotolo for giving up 6 on so few shots..

    1 breakaway goal
    4 powerplay goals
    1 goal off an unbelievable RIT turnover (the game winner)

    Thanks Winters for the brutally honest synopsis. Sounds like Mike was hung out to dry. I'm making the trip up next weekend excited to see this years team in person. I imagine this weeks practices will be tough. .

    It was a very frustrating and annoying loss, but the takeaway is still that we're a very good team. Already 3 of our freshmen have goals, Brubacher has 2 and is looking like a real stud on the blue line. Ton of team speed and solid defense. We just need to be a little more disciplined, which shouldn't be too hard to teach.

    Also I know coach wants to get as many guys in as possible early on, but the Friday night team was definitely better/faster than the Saturday night team. Saturday's scratches were Holland, Vallete, Perron-Fontaine, and Mikowsky. Definitely missed each and every one of them, imo.

    By the way - Perron Fontaine appears to have fully transitioned to forward this year, which is the right call. He also plays PK which is a nice ace in the hole, basically like having 3 D out there.

    That was just painful to watch. Four PP goals in under two minutes. A good reminder of how fast you can fall when you fail to keep your emotions in check. Upperclassmen need to set a better example.

    The time for hard lessons is early in the season. Let's hope the boys take this as seriously as they need to. Skill-wise we appear to have the depth to go far this year, but discipline wins games.

    Agreed! Better to stink it up now then near the end of the season and into the play-offs! Learn from these mistakes Tigers!

    And this is why College athletics always have the ability to Surprise, played by young kids who don't always learn their lessons. This might be a blessing in disguise as clearly this team was believe too much of it's own press. Let me que up Herb Brooks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hCHj-xZNkY) "Gentleman, you don't have enough talent to win on talent alone". A lesson better learned now early than later down the road. I agree with everything Coach Wilson said about it being inexcusable, poor leadership, and how many times before you learn your lesson? Only thing I have to add to the blame list would also be coaching. Wayne and his staff are some of the best in college hockey, but even the best have bad nights, and they can't escape blame on this one. The good news is their track record on using a game like this to get things turned around is very good.

    I think Ed Trefzger was spot on when he called it one of the most disappointing and frustrating losses that he has ever seen. And you can count on one hand the number of people who have seen more RIT games than Ed. Reminded me of the final Elmira game, where a particular group of players so abandon the principles that normally is a basic characteristics of this program that you were all most happy they lost, but not quite. Cause they needed to learn a lesson. This is a game that we will look back at the end of the year, absolutely if they finish 2 points behind any other team in the standing, but more so on how they respond. A game like this has a tendency to make or break a season. A turning point or a sign of things to come...

    Thanks for reading...

    I get the distinct impression that Coach doesn't think it's his job to instill discipline or attitude; he consistently blames the captains and upperclassmen when there's a breakdown.

    Absolutely a wrong impression. Just ask the 2001-2002 team that had all but something like 3 or 4 player suspended for a game for violating team rules. They had to break up the suspensions and play two games with half a team. It cost them a game against Wentworth that season. The last ECAC West Tournament saw several players removed from the line for disciplinary reasons. There have been many instances of suspensions over the years they are always kept quiet and information is hard to come by even if you been around for awhile.
