We struggled against Bentley. My summation in the UNO thread:

http://board.uscho.com/showthread.php?105805-UNO-13-14-Season-Thread-Barnstorming-Through-a-New-League-and-Raising-a-New-Barn&p=5785507&viewfull=1#post5785507

A look at the Friday night game with Bentley, specifically, is two posts back from this one.

I don't know what to expect out of this team this season, frankly. I want to give Coach Blais the benefit of the doubt, but, his first two seasons here have been the zenith of his tenure here so far and those season's accomplishments were almost exclusively obtained with Mike Kemp's recruits. We'll know whether we sink or swim by December 1, that's for sure.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of crowd comes in this weekend... I'm curious how MQT feels about the team and the shuffling that has gone on...

To the casual fan or to the fans from a few years ago who haven't kept up with the changes, they'll think it's an old conference foe we haven't played in a few years.

I'm excited to have UNO on the schedule and hope that a long term agreement could be worked out. Maybe not every year, but play them every two out of three years.

If I was you, I'd be excited to have an opponent that is 4-11-2 all time in your building coming to play, too.

I will be making the 400-mile jaunt from Bemidji to Marquette Thursday. Although I hate to miss the Battle of the Rodents (my Beavers versus the Gophers), the new NMU basketball coach is having basketball alumni back for Saturday's practice and cookout. Also going to talk to a class in HPER on Friday. I did get $120 for my 2 Friday/Saturday seats in row 17 at the Sanford Center, so I should be able to go see the NMU-UNO match-up with enough left over for dinner. Despite some bewilderment from the locals, I am looking forward to the Villa Capri; it looks exactly the same as it did in the early 70s and the lasagna, salad, bread and ice cream are still very good. GO BEAVERS! GO CATS!

Here's the NMU/UNO "history" thread from Mavpuck:

Replete with references to fish shenanigans. By the way, lake trout seems an awful waste. We throw carp on the ice.

Fishgate makes UNO fan's blood boil to this day. Do not touch our fish.

Fun times. :)


I also saw on my Youtube page that the UNO contingent can't be bothered to read the full video description of the Fishgate video to see that proper credit had already been given. :D



And for the new folk:
Grainy, postage stamp sized, audio lacking, video of the seeing eye single from Pat Bateman. :D

That jersey looks really good. A little more bold than the old ones.

Crowd will most likely be clueless. Do not judge it by the crowd.

I hope that's a dark green and not black. Or else we're MTU South.

I expect small crowds this weekend especially on Friday. Friday has the Marquette at Negaunee football game. Also, the Royales (the new lower tier junior hockey team) is home all weekend. Their $6 tickets and $1.50 beers will probably hurt NMU's ticket sales all season. I believe they are in first place in their league as well.

Wish I was there. Nothing like a late October tailgate in the UP.

There is a new low level junior team? I must not read the Mining Journal or TV6 websites too closely anymore.


Half kidding. I remember hearing that they were going to be starting. I completely forgot about them.

I really think that fans who will go to that game weren't really going to come to the NMU games anyway. At least not often enough to help NMU's bottom line.

UNO never was a "premire" draw anyway. I wouldn't place too much emphasis on attendance.

Some good giveaways (in the crowd, not on the ice) (if the AD opens the purse) and winning are what will get people in the door.

Oh, And I do believe it is dark green amd not black. That is a sharp looking jersey, and I hope we keep it (and win often) when wearing it.
