On PAPER this series surely favors UAA

Anchorage should win both of these. But I have a hunch they won't.

where did you find that bag? ...no don't tell me.

I do have to say and it's hard, but Bruce has stepped up his show. But that Huntsville announcer....... He is the new hands down red lantern winner.

The only way to find a winner in that battle is through head to head competition. I think we play Huntsville in February, if my memory is correct.

You guys have this one in the bag. I heard Coach Thomas was going to rest his starters.
The seems more like a weekend where UAF realizes they can kind of play hockey and eeks out 3 points.

Or UAA throws up a 10 spot on the Nooks.

Bruce has been doing this for a long time and is pretty good. Some are not a fan of his excitable style but he is not a homer and calls a good game.

Generally we are OK 5x5, even if we don't play with much passion or sense of urgency. But we tend to self-destruct at times and our special teams play is pathetic.
Nooks sweep! :)

It's because we do not like you.

Well that makes it totally okay then ;)

This has the makings of a season-changer. For either team.

The 'Nooks are playing well enough to still think that they have some hope. That's about it. Meanwhile ACC is playing determined hockey. It's like... The roles have switched...

Like JJ's note, the 'Nooks either turn it on this week. Or ACC turns it up. One team will get 3 of 4, or come up with a sweep. Not much in between.

This whole scenario is eerily similar to when these two teams played in Anchorage approximately two years ago to the day.

And then ended up splitting the first two of seven.

Yup, and it was a come from behind win on Saturday that pulled the Nooks out of the early season toilet. For what it's worth, that year we were swept by a then mediocre Michigan Tech team at home the weekend before playing UAA on the road. Kind of eerily similar to getting swept at home by a mediocre LSSU team prior to playing at Anchorage.

Our guys have to get at least one W this weekend for multiple reasons, and I think they know it. If they don't it's going to be a repeat of the 2011-12 12 win season, which was easily Dallas' worst season as coach.

Nooks sweep! :)

Tough to win when the team has to study and take enough classes to stay eligible?

This could be UAA's season as well. A sweep here puts them in prime position for a top 4 spot. It's a favorable, but tough, schedule ahead.

That's right, they have to manage a line up full of eligible players. :eek:

Well the Huntsville guy is a piece of work, he is on a Sunday drive pointing out about half the crap that is going on and that's just for Huntsville. He doesn't even identify "team mate" or the other 5 for that matter. Bruce has a chance. In reality He has a better chance that the dump bears climbing out of the cellar.

Matt and Dallas get along pretty good but they both want to win so it will be interesting to hear what they have to say about this weekend.

Arm wrestle, maybe?
