Satellite on Flagship *micro-aggression*. Fantastic!! :D

Considering Lowell has a satellite campus and Amherst doesn't...

Cue I'm the flagship now meme

Nick, When your program has sucked as long as ours has (and I've been watching it for 20 years. Ugh, that's hard to write), hope will always spring eternal with the hiring of a new coach. All fans (and some reporters!) are delusional at some point, we've just been delusional longer than most :-) The Cahoon years felt great because we seemed to be moving in the right direction.

The previous AD killed any momentum within the hockey program (and supporters) with his singular focus on football at the time of Cahoon's departure and Micheletto's hire. I think the institutional support piece is huge. AD Bamford seems to understand that its possible for multiple sports to be successful at the same time. I'd like to see a steady improvement under Coach Carvel, but I know it will take time to get to the point where we might contend on a regular basis. Another thread is asking if the "Big 4" in Hockey East has changed - Well, the wheels have come off in Orono and UNH seems to be A.B.D., so I find it hard to believe that UMass cannot start to move up with the right coaching and the right frame of mind at the administration level. Is Carvel going to "wake the sleeping giant"? I don't know but I'd like to think so at this point but I'm delusional (and re-upping my season tickets) :-)

And Patman, your degree says UMass too, whether you like it or not ;-)

In the same way that Donbass is part of Russia


Cherry-picking was the wrong term and I should have corrected you.

Awww... Gosh, thanks of thinking of little old me.

Excellent choice in selecting Ben Barr. Watch for the Minutemen to be more competitive in Hockey East.

Wouldn't take much to be an improvement

What will be interesting is to see how many of the old commits they keep vs cut loose

Maybe they can replace the scary Minuteman mascot with one of them! Seriously, the Friar is creepier than the Minuteman but not by much.

And the old Friar Mascot was even scarier than the present one.

Anyone know if the UVM game scheduled in Belfast will be yet another home game the season ticket holders lost? It is nice to see two games each with Arizona State and Colorado College (59 and 52 respectively in the final pairwise from last year) filling the void for already losing BU to Boston errr.... I mean Fenway.

I'm honored. When do I get to learn the intricacies of flipping cars?
