    I'd like to propose that the 2024 FuF be held outdoors in the path of the eclipse.

    Any HS field will do. If it is held in Northern wastes of New Hampshire, even better as natural ice could be used.

    Actually, Niagara Falls will be right in the path. And each team eliminated can be put in barrels and sent over the falls... the date in 2024 will be in April so the timing is perfect.

    Venue suggestion: Outpost Ice Arenas in Albuquerque, NM - home of the CooLLoop. Utilizing hydraulic boards, their two rinks can be connected via curling lanes to create a 1/5 mile loop. The main rink also features an old-west motif behind the player benches. http://search-rs.com/Slideshow.aspx?...001289&id=4332 http://www.outposticearena.com/virtualtour.html

    I suspect that there are some venues in Texas which will soon make bids.

    Speaking of venues, we will decide regionals in January. Fade, myself, and the Committee will go through all the suggestions.

    We have confirmed that Sandra Lee and Rachael Ray are coming to cook for the Futile Four. Kwanzaa cakes and tira me sundaes for everyone!

    *Except the committee. We will be at a local steakhouse, laughing our asses off.

    I'm also leaning towards having an "anti-Hobey Baker" and an "anti-Spencer Penrose" award, going to Worst Player and Worst Coach.

    For Worst Player, we'll call it the Orange Pylon.

    For Worst Coach, I am thinking Captain of the Titanic.

    I'd like the coach award to be the Tom Asbestos (Anastos) Award. He would have won it at least 4 years in a row.

    Don't forget, the Hobey is also supposed to have a character component (though in practice, it rarely does anymore). So the anti-Hobey should have a "lack of character/class" factor when voting on candidates.

    So if you can nominate a player that's a traffic come on the ice and a total sleaze off it, we want to know!

    I was thinking the John Scott Award, but Tech fans may disagree.

    I'd have been fine with it 10 years ago, especially after the drunk driving/attempted murder incident that forced him to spend part of his senior year in jail, but there is the fact that he did "play" almost 300 NHL games. So, I think that makes him too talented to have this award named after him (even if the talent was mostly his fists). Surely there are other deserving candidates.

    I was also thinking the Nathan Oystrick award, because he was a man whore on campus, but he was our best defenseman at the time.

    I actually felt sorry for State fans at that time.

    As bad as Anastos was, I propose the "Tim Watters Award" for worst coach. The MTU team that went 4-34-0 in 1999-2000 still stands as a single-season total loss record in NCAA D1 hockey history, and included starting and ending the season on 0-13 runs. He took what had been (while hardly a contender) a somewhat competitive program under Newell Brown and Bob Mancini, and tanked it.
