    It did not take the AHC very long to up their arena game once RIT built the Gene. Going back to our discussion on recruitment, this is another bad sign for RIT as they now lose out on scholarships and can't fall back on having the de-facto best/newest facilities in the league, either.
    Spot on. New rinks, scholarships eventually going up to the full eighteen. Time for RIT to engage ala “Maverick” from Top Gun. Time to tighten our seat belts and see what happens during the off season.

    Orange seats would be the bomb. I assume they were worried about needing to replace them down the road, or maybe were afraid they'd show dirt too readily. We do have one orange seat...

    Can't remember exactly, but seem to remember talk of a slim potential of an at-large bid if they had lost in the AHA Finals. They were around the bubble, but I don't think high enough to assume an at-large.

    I agree. I was very disappointed at the overall color scheme. Quite drab. I had thought they would want people (recruits, especially) to walk in and immediately know that this is the Tigers' house, whether there is a game going on or not. Instead it looks like the color scheme of a dungeon. I remember when it opened RIT saying something about the fans and their orange garb making the place colorful, not the seats or the walls. But when half the place is empty, it is quite the blah look.
    I know the budget wasn't there to put in a ton of the expensive bells and whistles. I didn't think colorful paint (or plastic seats) was one of the amenities they had to leave out.

    A couple of seasons ago Tate Rink at West Point had a combination of yellow and black seat backs, a recent renovation of the seat backs removed all the yellows and now all the seats are black... I imagine it had something to do with hiding dirt.. I liked it better with a little more color. Two colors also helped in assisting first time visitors with finding the right sections.

    I understand because I make sure I sit in dirt right before every hockey game. It's for good luck!

    If RIT is struggling to get the student body into the seats of The Gene, why doesn't RIT make tickets free for students in the student sections?

    Free??
    ha ha ha ha... oh wait... you were serious?
    RIT gives out nothing for free.

    Actually, they do that for one game each year and it gets pretty crowded in the GA sections. The reserved seats are still sparsely populated, though. So it still looks empty on TV.

    Back in the Ritter days they used to give out free tickets to any student who brought a canned good to a collection point in the tunnels. That effectively meant you could buy a dollar can of soup with your food debit and get a ticket to the game, which was a good deal.

    Seems like a win-win to me, fills up the building (still makes RIT money in concessions) and provides food to those in need.

    So of course they discontinued it.

    Athletics ran things at Ritter while RIT Arenas sets policy for Polisseni.

    It's hard to ask a student who is heavily in debt from going to your school to pay for a ticket to go to a hockey game. Have the Greater Rochester Area foot the bill for paying ticket prices.

    >>(still makes RIT money in concessions)

    This is a very good point. With the increased concession offerings (compared to what was available at the Ritter), plus the gift shop, and now the beer garden too, RIT could be doing a lot more to get more bodies in the door through free/reduced price tickets, promotions, giveaways, etc, and then make up for it by getting them to spend their money in the arena. They may already be doing some of this, but I don't know how well it's promoted. Case in point, I went to a game with my daughters this season on the spur of the moment. I planned on buying walk-up general admission tickets, but the girl at the ticket counter told me that they were running a special for alumni that night and reserved seats were the same price as general admission. So, I obviously went with the reserved seats, and had a little more money to buy my girls snacks (their main motivation for going to the game, but hey, it gets me out of the house and watching hockey!!!).

    Another factor that RIT should be leveraging in terms of getting community members coming to the games is the free parking. I don't know what it costs to park at an Amerks game, but I'm guessing in the neighborhood of $10 or so, based on other events I've gone to at the BCA. Again, this is a little extra money in a fan's pocket, hopefully to be spent in the arena.

    I don't think they were that close, especially since they were awful out of conference during the regular season, and the conference wasn't yet even holding its own in non-conference games (no Robert Morris or Niagara yet, either) If I had to guess I'd say they were around 20 or 21 even with the win in the championship game, and a lost to Sacred Heart would have dropped them another handful of places. They were the 15th overall seed in the tournament because last place Alabama-Huntsville won the CHA tournament in that conference's final year, allowing RIT to avoid the #1 overall seed. Any of the other 3 CHA teams would have been ranked ahead of RIT, IIRC (Be.

    Unfortunately there's nowhere to look up old PWR data, it seems. The thread from that year seems pretty sure that we would not make it or even be all that close with a loss at BCA though.

    EDIT: I found it. RIT was 25th in RPI in 2009-10. Ahead of both Niagara and Robert Morris though. https://www.collegehockeynews.com/ra...eason=20092010

    That's all well and good, but you'd have to get "the Greater Rochester Area" to actually go to a game first. Nobody outside of the RIT community cares, it seems.

    Actually, Denver was the #1 overall. They didn't work very hard to protect the # 1 back then, and since DU would have had to fly to any of the four regionals, they thought it was no big deal to send them all the way to Albany to play the # 15 seed, since it was just an AHA team anyhow. Whoops!

    No they weren't. They were going into the conference tournaments but lost it when they didn't win their tourney. It's literally right in the link in the post you quoted that Miami of Ohio was #1 by Pairwise (and RPI itself, for that matter).

    There would be no reason whatsoever to send Denver to Albany to play RIT while having Miami(OH) stay closer to home and play the #16 overall (and 40 something in PWR) Alabama-Huntsville.

    There were still complaints that Denver was not protected as the #1 seed in the regional, but that doesn't mean they were #1 overall.

    “The Boy” (’22) confirmed that this was indeed offered this year, for all games except the playoffs. Bring a non-perishable food item to some office (Cannot recall the organization... maybe RHA??) in the tunnel between Gleason & Gracies (yes ol’ timers... there is a tunnel connecting to Gracies now) and get a free GA ticket. There were a limited number of these available (not sure how many), so you had to get there early to get a free ticket.
