Rhode Island is neither a Rhode nor an Island, and Connecticut doesn't really Connect anything...concidence?

Hey, we provide a connection between Yankeeland and Red Sox Nation. We're actually more of a transitional buffer but Buffericut doesn't have the same ring to it..

Most important, we provide a home for two ECAC schools so I get two local games. The boys played a strong game Thursday and I'll be there next weekend to root for an undefeated Nutmeg schedule this year.

Actually, Newport with the naval base IS on an island; you're just used to the Providence Plantations section of the state's charter.

Back to games that matter. We are going to have to be at our best for the next ten games. While we are good enough to sweep them, it is highly doubtful given the buildings we will be playing in.
Just play our best for 60/65 minutes. Let Kazzy make the first save and clear the rebounds.

Lets go red!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would not even be thinking about the next 10 games. Focus on the next 2. We need a road sweep next against two teams that are very different in their play against us. We have to adapt to each and it is always a bit tougher in their buildings as they get the advantage of last change and perhaps some home town officiating. Would be nice to go there with a full complement of players and get Riley and Parker back so we have a little extra. Coach said it in his last interview that we have very little leeway and reserve without those two. it goes without saying that am I now getting a bit greedy. We scored an empty net goal against Union and I would like to see a couple more this weekend.

That was only our second ENG all year; the other coming vs. Arizona State. And I'm more worried about the next 1 game than 2. We get Yale on Saturday, so it is entirely possible for Brown to catch us by surprise. And considering we've already given up a point to them, we must be on our toes.

And could have been (or probably should have been) another point given up to them thanks to the replay issue. I'm sure that the Brown game is the only game that is being brought up right now.

Why do I find myself agreeing with you lately? The Brown game is the more crucial for us to win. Although i would love a sweep, if we have to settle for a tie i would not want it against Brown. We have not matched up well against them for the past few years and I am not sure if it is anything more than just style of play. Yale is a tougher match up this year than in the past few as they have shifted somewhat from a speed game to a more physical game. Brown most definitely over achieves against us as we watch other teams handle them more easily. In any case we need a win Friday and we can go from there.

Pep Band is going to both games. Hopefully local alums will show as well to give the team some great support. I'll be at Brown on Friday.

Pappy: You keep posting like this and you could catch Ralph fairly soon, perhaps the end of the century!!! Can anyone believe that we could see RB hit 200,000??

Actually CT is named after the CT River which connects the mountains to the sea. It also has the distinction of connecting the two national finalists in 2013.

Was wondering which trip they were making this year... good to know which one. Was hoping for Colgate/Cornell, but it's all good.

I'm hoping for a Lake Placid trip.

Not gonna happen. Ralph is in a class by himself. Just trying to add to the NJ alum posting numbers.

The band hasn't made the Yale/Brown trip since you went to RPI, FlagDUDE (they did go to Yale for the playoffs in 2009, but that's a little different). It was more than overdue. A whole generation of pep band members never visited either school, but they seem to make the Central NY swing every other year.

In any case, I will obviously be at the Yale game, and I may or may not go to Yale-Union, depending on when the people crashing at my apartment get in on Friday.

i actually sat and figured it out one day and with the vast number of posts he has assigned an amount of time to them and I could not figure out how he has time to go to the bathroom and surmised that he might have a catheter for use at the keyboard. (only kidding RB)

It's a short walk to the bathroom. :)

Is 89 your RPI class? If you have a daughter at RPI, it can't be when you were born as is the 92 in lugnut92.
