    Interesting concept to chew on as we wait for the next installment of UNH hockey. I did a search about losing streaks, just for fun. Though this was an interesting paragraph if anyone wants to discuss it:

    Your team probably isn't as good as you think it is when it is it winning seven games in a row and getting every possible break to go its way, and it's not as bad as you think it is when it's losing five out of six and not getting any breaks.
    Don't become a prisoner of the moment.


    As a fan it's easy to become a prisoner of the moment, teams too! When you are winning games you think that's what you are going to keep on doing. You don't realize there is REAL work to be done because at the time... It just seems so easy. You left behind the thrill of the first couple when you actually had to grind it out and play your best. Yet THAT is when you have to really push yourself because you have become a TARGET other teams want to take down. When you are losing games you think you are going to continue to lose (which is why some of us might be wary of the Brown game. Hey, no more cupcake talk, ya hear???)

    I knew if Yale scored first that we would go on to lose the game because as anyone who has ever coached during a losing streak this only confirms what the team is already thinking. They are playing not to lose, but they aren't playing to WIN either. Nothing good ever comes from this type of approach. Recipe for disaster in fact! And one constant to remember is that ' you are never as good' or are 'never as bad' as you think you are. So....what/how do you coach this team this week? Business as usual? Somebody has to STEP UP on that team. That's what I'm telling them. Who is going to STEP UP and give it a full 60? Fascinating, this coaching stuff; sometimes I wonder why I left it...(I have many reasons). Link for above quote:

    Ps. I do have to remind myself that UNH has young players in key positions getting a ton of minutes. But those who are veterans need to really lead the way. They have to be the ones to step up.
    Whatever, HR, but Brown Bears = Cupcake, with capital C. :-)

    I hope that we do not need to post Dennis Green's rant after this game.

    Yeah, they do fit that analogy I suppose! Wonder how the USCHO HE team will see us this weekend; if we get a split from them I'd be surprised. UNH has to bury this cupcake then. That's what I'm expecting. Go 'Cats!

    Ps...who is Dennis Green?

    At this point in the season I am a little surprised at being 9-9-1. I think we caught a few times on rough nights - but that happens. Lets not forget that most prognasticators had them at the bottom of the HE standings before the season and thats probably where they will end up.

    Looks like the UNH Women's team is having a pretty decent season so far. 3rd in HE, 13th in PWR. Well done!!

    Gosh, it's reassuring that in those last 4 losses, they've only lost by one or two goals.

    Phew. And here I was, underestimating the sheer force of Army, Merrimack, Dartmouth and Yale.

    At least I won't be so disappointed with that juggernaut from College Hill coming to town tomorrow ...

    According to today's Foster's Daily Democrat, Joe Sacco will be joining Patrick Grasso in the Shoulder Surgery/Hope to Redshirt dept.

    Also, Mike Robinson has mono and is expected to miss the next three weeks.

    Adam Clark, our weary eyes turn to you.

    So has Umile been watching the same games I have been? "Pretty good hockey" does not in any way describe what I have seen since before the Providence series... "I'm not disappointed with the way we play..." Well that is why we are in this sub mediocrity that we have been stuck in for the last five years. You have been mailing it in and frankly don't seem like you even care enough to call out the lazy, disinterested play that has been plaguing this team. Thanks, "coach".

    Can't blame you for your feelings; if they don't turn it around this weekend with inspired play then they just don't care about it, period. But I just can't imagine they feel this way about their season. We need to see a good run here; after the Brownies we are going to be fighting for our very lives with HE play going forward. I never mind getting beat by a better team; goes with the territory! What I do mind is uninspired play that gets validated with comments like you mentioned. It's NOT ok. Come on 'Cats; show us what you got.
    Let's Go 'Cats!

    Nailed it. In short, if the coach doesn't care, why should we??

    You lose four in a row against top-shelf teams, you can find/justify "moral victories".

    You lose the last four games that UNH has lost ... it's time for "tough love", or some form of accountability.

    It's never been more about the NRN than it is right now. And that's really a shame ...

    No worries, we have yet to play cupcake Northeastern three times this regular season. :-)
