Looks like the other thread has been locked, so here's a fresh one.

Wow! I didn't even realize we hit the magic 1000 number! I don't think we've ever had that many posts, have we?:cool:

I'm still trying to acclimate myself to Union playing Harvard tonight. Hopefully the team has.

We didn't make it to AC. In the few clips I've seen, there were many others who didn't either. We're waiting for the Regionals, hopefully in the East.:)

Again I have to say congrats, the better team won ! Go far, you are my team now !

Video quality on the online streaming was in my opinion very good. It buffered a couple of times, but overall looked very crisp.

Everything i've read says Union goes to Bridgeport either as the #1 seed or #2 seed...hopefully the ice will be better than last year. I remember walking in and thinking "boy is it warm in here" and seeing puddles in between periods.

If we win tonight, we are a #1 seed in the National Tournament.

Union a number one seed in the national tournament? I would have never believe such a thing possible when I was a student, only five years ago, but as if that will the reality this evening. For selfish reasons, I wish the Dutch would get shipped out to St. Paul (I live in Minneapolis), but it'll be much better for the team, and their fans to play out east. What an amazing time to be a Dutchmen.

Let's go U!

Some observations from AC. First it isn't Trump Plaza, it's more like Dump Plaza. Still it's great to see all the fans and teams milling about.

Speculation is that AC is done after next year and that the new sites under consideration are a couple of those tossed around here including LP.

Apparently the background in the arena are causing some visual problems for the goalies.

Harvard's power play looked awesome vs Cornel so U had best stay out of the box. Killorn is a beast and U may have a tougher time containing him than they did Mr. Smith. Still U looks extremely focused and if they play their game, U wins. Go U!!

It doesn't get too much better then this...this is what it is all about....

GO U!!!!

Shout out to rpi tv for great job

I probably helped a bit with all of my arguing ;)

Looking forward to a good game today.

Let's go U!

Doesn't the ECAC have an out clause in their AC deal? If so, you'd think they would use it after this tournament.

Schott has some sights and sounds from AC - http://www.dailygazette.com/videos/2012/mar/17/1004/

I feel like I'm dreaming - don't wake me up!

We've been following Union hockey since it went D-I. It wasn't that long ago that we were waiting to win a third playoff game, let alone an actual series. And it really doesn't seem that long ago (but it was) that we were overjoyed at winning at all - wins being so scarce at the time. Third in the PWR - awesome!

Go U - play with all you have to give!

Schott says there's no lineup changes for tonight's title tilt.

New Poster, long time U fan, I think U has a good chance to win, they haven't been playing terribly well in these games and yet they are winning.. so LET'S GO U

Here's some Union -- Harvard trivia.

Before they were the Garnet and the Crimson, respectively, both schools called themselves the Magenta. Really. And had a fight over who the color belonged to.

You can read Union's version of the story here: http://www.union.edu/N/DS/edition_display.php?e=932&s=4363

And here's the Harvard version: http://www.thecrimson.com/article/2002/4/11/harvard-explained-why-is-crimson-harvards/

Its up to you to decide who to believe...

Boys will have to generate their own energy . . . I'd say less than 1000 in the building right now.

Congats Union! Best of luck in the tourney!

Union wins 3-1 to capture the Whitelaw Cup.... one of the best hockey moments I've seen in a long time.
