Which RPI team will show up in Troy next weekend? The one who lost to Harvard, or the one who beat Dartmouth?

Will I regret going to Troy for this weekend?

I don't think there is all that variation to the team that we have put on the ice for each game so far. We just did not seem to match up as well with Harvard as we did with some other teams and we allowed them back into a game we should have been able to clamp down on. We played well at BC only to run into a buzz saw once adaptations were made-and i think we plain ran out of gas. I think if coach SA has this team ready and prepared for the C and C weekend-making whatever changes necessary(in the ECAC it is almost impossible to approach each game with the same plan)-we should be fine. Too early in the season to know how well each team is beginning to mesh. I can only suggest that most of us did not think we would be 5-2-1 at this stage and near the top of the country in goals scored and winning goal margin. When our number 1 goalie went down to injury-did anyone feel that we would replace him with one who is in the top 5 in several categories? Scotty has faced over 170 shots and allowed only 10 goals. Let's Go red-make this weekend count!!

Hopefully not the one wearing the Black Tuesday uniforms. (Sounds like a good roadtrip... while we may have to watch our matchups with a team like Harvard, the game was decided by a puck bounce or two... and Dartmouth may be in for a long season.) Let's get up for the C&C weekend... after all Ralph's coming up for it. :)

Aren't the games on 11/8 and 11/9? Or did I miss them already?

For Cornell and Colgate fans, you missed them already. :p:D

No, they are November.

During RPI's 11-1 charge that led them from 12th to 2nd place in the ECAC standings last year, the only blemish was inflicted by Cornell.

Colgate also played the Engineers tough during that stretch in two games decided by one goal, one of those in overtime.

Should be a couple of good games in Troy this weekend.

I suppose there could be a couple of good games in Schenectady, too, though nobody seems to be commenting on those.

If these were in CNY, we'd be talking about the curse. :D

On paper both Union and RPI should handle Colgate, but that's a dangerous assumption. Generally, RPI seems to match up better with Cornell than Union over the past several seasons, but I guess we'll see. Kasdorf's injury is troubling but Diebold has obviously shown that he can handle the task. The real concern would be injury to him with an untested freshman as the only backup. These should be great games, with great college hockey atmosphere.

Other way around. I don't know if we've ever matched up well vs. Cornell. Just gotten lucky a few times.

Thanks Turk-we have only seen Dumas a few times down here at Princeton-some times he has been mediocre and sometimes downright awful. One thing for certain-he has consistently missed calls and consistently made questionable calls. In virtually every game though, he has done something that makes you notice him and has affected the outcome of the game. This may turn out to be a special teams weekend-just have to hope we are prepared.

Dumas was the one that worked the BU game with Hicks that involved a bunch of fights. The most recent one.

Personally I do not yet have enough experience with him as an official-but I have mentioned that he has made some poor decisions in games and I do remember him down here at Princeton for an RPI game where his calls affected the outcome.

Ed Weaver's game-day article http://www.troyrecord.com/sports/20131107/rpi-plays-host-to-a-pair-of-nemesis.

OK, what is the plural of nemesis? It's either nemeses or nemesises, probably the former because my spellchecker likes it, but certainly not nemesis.


Sophomore right winger Milos Bubela (1-3-4) may miss the weekend action with an undisclosed lower-body injury and sophomore RW/LW Travis Fulton (2-6-8 last season) will likely still be out with a head injury. :eek:

Based upon the spell checker for this application alone, nemeses.
