    Hobart might want to start declining hosting if they earn the right. Think that’s 3 straight years now they’ve lost at the Cooler. UMass Boston, Endicott and now Geneseo.

    They clearly love playing in hostile atmospheres and thrive off it.
    Oswego pounded them 6-1 in 2015 at The Cooler as well NCAA round 1....Back in my days 85-87 at Oswego I had a few friends who played for Hobart,each time we played they requested that we did not beat them by double digits...times have changed,except for the Cooler

    Yup, best SUNYAC team we faced this year:

    12/1- Oswego Genny 2-2 OT
    2/9- Oswego 4, Genny 2
    Oswego State 1980 Grad
    (attended in one way or another from 1968-1988, don't ask..... )

    It was a shame that Hobart and Geneseo had to cancel one of each other out this early, though. They were set on a collision-course too soon, but that's not atypical stuff in the D-3 world.
    I think this is a compliment to Mark Taylor and his great recruits over the years. However if Geneva is a hole, why does it have some of the top rated restaurants and hotels in the region, including the top rated new restaurant in the entire United States in 2017 as per a USA News poll(FLX Table), I think you must hang outside of the Cooler for leftovers after a game....Also, I think you mean the Cooler is iconic or perhaps rustic .... by the way, because of the success of the Statesmen program and the four year old Heron program, there are plans to partner with Geneva(as part of a downtown hole revitalization) to build a new rink that should make those that need more comfort while attending the game satisfied. I do think we need this built soon in order to break the bad karma in the first round of the NCAAs these last 4 years...this year was particularly upsetting because of drawing such a great team in Geneseo in the first round.....they deserved to win as our defense was not as tight as the final we played against Norwich...I really hope Genny goes all the way so we can prove the quality of eastern hockey, and Hobart crawls out of the dump in the hole to play in the NCAAs again next year.

    There is a reason that very little construction occurs in Geneva. I happened to have been intimately involved in the most recent construction project in downtown Geneva, (3 blocks from the cooler) and it took literally YEARS to get anything through the City's oppressive and obstructionist processes. The infrastructure (power, data, water, comm, sewer) is also a mess.

    I believe the college deserves better, much better, but don't hold your breath, nothing happens "soon" in that City.

    Lake Champlain on the remaining side.

    WOW...sounds like the city of Plattsburgh....That is why most new business ends up in the Town of Plattsburgh...which virtually surrounds the city on 3 sides with Lake Champlain on the remaining side.

    Believe me, we don't hang-out anywhere near the Rec Center for anything... But perhaps you'd know if the left-overs there are any good?

    Seriously, we don't mind the cold there, even back when it used to snow inside. What we hate about that place is that there are just a handful of decent seats, and no really good ones.

    Yes, Hobart deserves a better arena than that midget-hockey venue. I agree whole-heartedly.

    Or, add utter cannon-fodder to inflate your conference's population (while simultaneously weakening it) in order to satisfy the D-3 process, which is what the (former) ECAC-W had to do to garner the sacred AQ...

    Face it, you can't have it both ways via any cogent argument.

    Now that I think about it, maybe this explains the Statesmen's success on the road.... although other posts do not leave me with much optimism on timing of a new rink...so embracing the iconic, spartan Cooler will continue .....at least the parking is free
