The logical inference being that you might not actually be an expert..... ;) merely that you consider yourself to be one.

Everyone is free and able to formulate their own opinions on levels of expertise. Welcome to the wonders of subjective analysis. ;)

UND's radio broadcast can be found at 96.1 The Fox. You can find it on iheart radio. An NCHC.tv daily pass is $15.00. Too bad RPI isn't playing two games at UND, or playing some other NCHC teams in the next month. The monthly pass is $25.

NCHC.tv quality was extremely good last year, but in the first couple of games this year some people have experienced some bugs.

I now realize that this is the HoF game which I had forgotten, but it does surprise me that there is no second game. Coach Appert has said many times that he liked it when he was at Denver and most weekends were two games vs. a single opponent. Perhaps one of teams did not have an extra game to schedule or perhaps RPI asked for a return trip to Troy which ND did not want.

Can't understand why UND wouldn't want to come to Troy considering that they are coming to play in Schenectady on New Years Eve for one game only this season.

I don't think the HOF game counts against a team's 34 game max. UND has a single game against Union later this season, but they also have a single game against BC in NYC. UND already has its 34 games scheduled.

It looks like RPI does too.

I was at that series. Right around Thanksgiving, as I recall. UND won a wild game Friday, but got blown out Saturday. I think Friday's loss was the last for RPI that year. Terrific team.

Some big names on that UND roster! Including the current coach. And obviously a great RPI team :)

This is the absolute truth. To schedule another game would count against the 34. Sure, it might mean we'd give up playing one of the single HEA matches, but it's a bit tougher for the Sioux.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to FreshFish again.

Looks like the only RPI regular missing from that game was George Servinis. Must have been because of NCAA restrictions at that time.

Mike Sadeghpour is also missing. What restriction was there at the time on Servinis?

George wasn't restricted in 84-85, just his first year, 82-83.

So do you RPI guys hate RIT? What's the deal there? :)

I can't speak for current students or recent grads, but I don't. The hate is left for Union and Clarkson. We do get mixed up with RIT fairly often.

I just figured another Tech school not too far away would be a good rivalry...Didn't even think about Schenectady or Potsdam. You guys have a lot of in-state rivals, that's nice. Good luck this year; hope UND stomps you guys on Saturday, though. :)

One of the instate AHA schools, Canisius, is still on our short list of teams which we have never played.

The only time I was ever annoyed with RIT - and it wasn't really their fault - was some years ago, when both RPI's and RIT's basketball teams made the NCAA Division III basketball tournament and one of them was matched up to play Franklin & Marshall College, located in Lancaster, PA, which is close enough to me that I could attend the game.

Unfortunately, the local newspaper reported that F&M would be playing "Rochester Polytechnic Institute," a label which, of course, fits neither RPI nor RIT. That left me in the dark as to which team was going to be playing in Lancaster. :confused:

I had to do some serious checking around to verify that, in fact, it was Rensselaer that would play F&M.

I don't understand why the team would travel half way across the country for one game. Do we get compensated for playing in the HoF game? Could we not find a game closer to home to fill the schedule?
What's up with that?

As Flagdude wrote, it does not count to the 34-game limit.
