    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    My first ECAC tournament in Lake Placid was a fun one, with Princetonís title game win guaranteeing 3 ECAC teams in the NCAA tournament (along with Cornell and Clarkson). It is off to the misplaced Midwest Regional in Allentown this weekend, cheering for Princeton (and Denver). Then an Amtrak adventure to Saint Paul will follow in early April. Go ĎGate.

    I know. This has bugged me for years...

    Three of the six are from Brooks (AJHL). It appears Union is the only school with fewer recruits with 5.

    Iowabasedtraveler is rapidly becoming my idol...love the passion and commitment...also rooting for Princeton (even Clarkson and Cornell)...this type of recruiting is typical for Colgate...I will say we are losing the two back-up goalies, Wedberg, Peterson and Panowyck...lose five, bring in five or six (Vachon looks like 2019)...I WOULD like to see some additional commits out in 2021...

    First recruit commit this year, Jared Marino, 6-3 205# forward from Kelowna BCHL. Captain of team and second leading scorer, looks promising, looks like a late bloomer having his best year. About time !

    indeed...6'3", 205 pounds, possibly a steal this late in 2018-19 recruiting cycle...massive jump in PPG from 2016-17 to 2017-18...let's hope...

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    The NCAA "Midwest" Regional in Allentown (Penna.) was a positive experience for me, as they (the city and the PPL Center) truly showed that it was important to them.
    The three games were all lop-sided, but the better team earned the win each game. Ohio State deserves to advance to the Frozen Four in Saint Paul (Minn.) in two weeks.
    Allentown will host next year's "Midwest" Regional also, and I will plan on attending unless Colgate (or Omaha) is seeded elsewhere. I will also attend the 2019 Frozen Four in Buffalo (N.Y.).
    Amongst the side trips this past weekend were Allentown (America on Wheels museum tour), Pottsville (Yuengling brewery tour), Bethlehem (Bethlehem Steel Museum tour), Gap (Amish), former Mauch Chunk (Jim Thorpe Memorial) and Reading (Reading Royals ECHL game).
    I also met 1968 Colgate alum (and basketball player) John Gee from Rochester, N.Y., at the Regional, which was fun. Go 'Gate!

    Hope springs eternal, as my wife says. Hope she wasn't referring to me !

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    BTW...I read somewhere(forgot where) that the Lady Raiders have the #1 recruiting class in all of D1. Two coming from the Lady Ducks of Anaheim, you want to see a program, check that site out. They have about twenty teams including U19AAA, U19AA, and U19A, our two are from the U19AAA .

    indeed they do, according to "Neutral Zone's" analysis...just got access to their site (it's tremendous, but does cost a little $$$)...wish I could say the same about the MIH's efforts...frankly, not enough 4 star and up recruits...lots of kids in the 3.75 range (out of five)...Connecticut has a strong class next year (both in depth and quality) as well as the usual suspects...to be honest, the recruiting looks "OK" but nothing, at least on paper, to get nuts about...

    Just be aware that the rankings are misleading until the official classes are announced, a team like UConn has some good recruits but they definitely won't be #1 when things are all said and done, for Clarkson they haven't even updated the fact that Nick Campoli didn't make it through the NCAA clearing house so he was pushed back to the 18-19 class yet NZ still has him as a part of the 17-18 class so in theory Clarkson should have 2 guys that are 4.25 stars in Dunne and Hurley and then 3 guys that are 4 stars in Campoli, Klack, Tisdale.

    I wish I were smoking what you're smoking. Sheez, you get around

    Incidentally, I remember Johnny Gee reffing some of the Colgate basketball games back in the 60's (that really dates me..ugh)

    Don't smoke, but do pop pills. Medications. he he he. This month marks the one-year anniversary of the start of nine days/nights in hospice, and another 50 in hospital and rehab facility, all in Des Moines.
    So, you are right, I do try to 'get around' and live life to the fullest now. And, for me, that means rabidly following college hockey in the fall/winter and short-track motorsports in the spring/summer.
    Colgate hockey and sprint car racing are my specific passions, but I love just Roaming the Rinks and Roaming the Raceways, in general. I truly enjoy researching the history of both sports in my retirement.
    And I love when people say, 'Live every day like it's your last.' I tell them, 'I did that for nine straight days in Des Moines last March, and it wasn't that much fun!' he he he. Go 'Gate!

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    Glad you are healthy...and one of Colgate's biggest fans.

    Appreciate the news on WIH recruits; men's recruits have never materialized after a good season, which is sad. With the new arena, Colgate's academic reputation, the stunning campus, and recent success, why would anyone choose, say, Clarkson?! Do not want to get my hopes up, thinking this past year was a OHW - One Hit Wonder. We are losing some amazing talent, but if we restock and reload, maybe the Lady Raiders won't miss a beat. Kudos to Fargo. I was skeptical; a D-III coach trying his hand at his first D-I gig. Hopefully the success of several programs (men's soccer, WIH, men's bb) will impress the new AD, whomever that may be. Any news there?

    Hey Iowa, shame you didnít have better weather you could have hit the Grove on Friday, and Port or Lincoln Saturday. But I think your Saturday was booked.
