    Again, I'm not at all blaming Marshall. A goaltender is only as good as the defense playing in front of him, and ours was really bad. Point being, barring a nagging injury we didn't know about, it's hard to figure how Perry didn't see any ice time.
    Ken Dryden lost the only college game which I saw him play. I wouldn't buy his book.

Curious as to what the masses may think. The pieces appear to be there, and I would agree the the 6 man unit in front of the goalie needs to be better. So I guess my optimism is high for the upcoming season because I see what these other two programs have achieved.
    Fogarty is in year 4 - and this year broke .500 overall, after 4,5 and 15 win seasons. No doubt the upside is high for that squad.

    Carvel is in year 2. Too small of a sample size, but they improved from 5 wins to 17 in year two.

    It's about changing the mindset of the team and giving your goalie a mental period/game off. You give the kid a mental night off to work the gate and watch the game ...for his mental health. A huge component of goaltending is mental and allowing ~23 goals in that 4 game stretch didn't accomplish much for Marshall. One man's opinion .
    I guess I will make it two men's opinion. He did not get the support he should have from the D and also from the coaches.

    If he didn't have the support from the coaches, he wouldn't have still been playing game after game. VERY difficult to argue the former, though.

    I was at that game also. I still have the program in perfect shape (I others from 63-64 also if anyone is interested). I probably saw him play other games at HFH.

    RPI kicker Christian Kapp participated in Wagner's pro day today. Giants and Colts among teams there. He hit a long of 55 yards. Hoping for a camp invite.

    The only other game he played in Troy was two years earlier at the start of the 66-67 season. I don't recall being there and I could not find a program when I looked the last time this came up. Cornell did win that game.

    This is based upon 6 October 2018 for the start of next season.

    Not so sure. Unlike Franks, what game experience does he have with kicking those sorts of things?

    I do wonder, though, how much the administration is putting into hyping the football team vs. the hockey team, and if the queen is trying to turn RPI into another of those "mainstream" colleges.

    I have the same concern. It's like the Rensselaer University idea which was bandied about years ago. CCT became Clarkson University and they still suck.

    I would never like the school to be named RU. Years ago when I told people that I attended RPI they mostly asked why I went to a military school.

    I don't recall any confusion with RIT when I was at RPI.
