Now that the exhibition game is out of the way, it's time to discuss the games that matter. I'll start this off by pointing out that transfer Justin Fox (http://oswego.edu/athletics/teams/ice_hockey/0910profiles/justin_fox.html) and sophomore Eric Selleck (http://oswego.edu/athletics/teams/ice_hockey/0910profiles/eric_selleck.html) were absent from the lineup in Oswego's exhibition win. Is there is a story behind that?


I finally got around to listening to BTB. Coach Emery does not mince words when asked about Hince.

Ryan,
I've read the accounts in the paper of the exhibition game. I'd be curious to know your and Prez's thoughts on the new team and the new freshmen. What did Emery say about Hince?


Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the exhibition game and only caught about five minutes of the audio web cast. I'm going to try and make it to the first away game at my favorite D3 arena, the Murray Dome, on Saturday night.

Emery said Hince's decision to leave was among the dumbest decisions Emery has ever seen in his 22 years of coaching.


We may pick on him here a lot, but the guy never pulls his punches and I couldn't agree with Coach Emery any more than I can about this. Leaving for the pros early when you're playing D-III is indescribably stupid.


Depends on whether this was the opportune time to make a run at the dream rather than waiting for a shot that never arrives. He can still finish the education. And maybe he had enough of you know who!:)


The text:


Hince was a good student too? Something is missing here. Perhaps he just couldn't afford it. Too bad, wish him the best.


We missed the first period, it was a one-goal game after that, same at the end of P2. After watching the second period against a like 1-5 team I thought that Coach Ed is going to have his work cut out for him this year. After the second intermission the guys started clicking and they pulled away. Hey, with all the new kids and about two days of "official" practices under their belts (oops, suspenders) they barely know each other's names! Campus Center was a sellout- 3000, good to see.

Forgot to include 2010 in thread title. Copied everything that was in previous regular season thread into this one.

Ducky How surprised were you at Hincys leaving?

Emery Well, I was really surprised you know you dont I think he made I think it was one of the dumbest moves Ive seen in my 22 years of coaching. You know, people out there might think Im selfish - Im not. You come here for two years, you pay a lot of money toward your education and you leave here with nothing. For a chance a chance not a guarantee, to play minor league pro hockey for $300 a week. But what can I do? I cant do anything about it you know I wish him the best. He worked his tail off while he was here and he was a hard working kid. He did well in school too, which was another thing that kind of surprised me. When we heard he wasnt coming back, we brought him in and we told him you know we made a decision we cant if you are looking youre gone, because we need to get going.

I've been to Oswego. I got really drunk at Cheap Seats and hooked up with an Oswego girl and left with a really bad infection. What a rage of a time up and down Seneca.

Don't you have some NHL 10 tournaments to play in or something?

You realize Seneca is a dorm and not exactly Bridge St., right? Might want to actually visit Oswego, or at least brush up on your google map navigational abilities.

Looks like the same jerseys as the home ones except they're green. Thankfully they aren't black as Oswego never seemed to perform well with those the last 2 years.


Ticket prices went up this year I see. It used to be $6 for adults at Oswego State hockey games at the CC.

I remember in class last year Gosek was trying to impress upon us that $6 wasn't much for a hockey game/entertainment for the night. I certainly agree with this (altho being a student, I never had to pay) but $8 does seem to be a bit pricey, especially for families. 15 home games - that's an extra $30 per person for the season.


Currently, I won't be going to the CC on Friday as I have a wedding to attend in Auburn. However, I am planning on making the trip to the Domes on Saturday for the back end of the home and home doubleheader.

I am stunned to hear this news. A certain former WTOP Sport Director and I are going to be making our way up north and we had thought it was all but a certainty you would be there. I suppose a wedding is a good enough excuse tho... However, Auburn is just 40 minutes away, 30 with the way you drive. Just sayin.

In his defense, Seneca is just a street over from Bridge. They do intersect at the 6 point intersection (which is right near Cheap Seats). Perhaps in his drunken stupor he thought they were one and the same



Anyways, does anyone know what the Lakers' alternate jerseys look like this year (or if there even is one)?

Thanks for the news flash. I went to school at Oswego and lived there for five years. He has no defense. He's a troll and likely an alias for someone else here. He's never been to Oswego. He has attacked St. Norbert, Adrian, Oswego and Stevens Point in his eight historic posts. Yeah, that grouping makes a lot of sense.

If you hooked up with a "girl" at/from Cheap Seats, I'd love to see what she looks like and her age because besides football game days, it's a lot of townies there and about 35 year old women, so kudos. Troll.

A certain former Laker just had his forum account approved. This will not go well.

$8 is still a helluva bargain for college hockey, even at the Division III level. I paid over $800 for two seats at Yost (Michigan) the last year I had my tickets there ('06-'07), and face value was $18-$23, depending on a game. I know people at Yost that were paying $1,100 for two seats for a season. Talk to a Minnesota fan and find out what they're paying. All of a sudden $8 doesn't sound so bad at all. I think I'm paying $10/game at you-know-where.

I certainly agree that $8 is a good price for a hockey game. Great price even. I'm mostly surprised they raised prices after it seemed like people thought $6 was getting up there. Also, I don't think they would need to be paying off the campus center (forget who mentioned that) because it was all paid for before it was built by tax payers and fundraising - at least that's what I've been told in the past.

I have never been to a D-I hockey game. I understand why prices are higher, especially at a powerhouse hockey school, since the quality of players and competition is. Would you rather pay the $20 a game for a D-I game or $8 for a D-III? Just wondering where you get more out of the money you spend.

I guess it would depend on how badly you want to see a team play. For Michigan, $18 wasn't so bad once you knew that Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State were coming in every year, and in some cases twice a year, and I always got to see my alma mater in there as well. Also, every other year Minnesota and Wisconsin also play at Yost. Michigan also included the 1st round of the CCHA playoffs as a part of the package, as they've hosted a 1st round playoff series every year since 1990-91. You could certainly justify the cost of the tickets with that kind of schedule. Granted, Ohio State is certainly the weakest link there, but you also had the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry going there as well. That, and the fact that Yost is an incredible place to watch a college game.

It got to the point for me where I couldn't justify paying $800/year for two tickets when I have other things going on in my life that I could use the money for. It was just a personal decision I had to make.

Tickets seem to always be more expensive out west for games. UMass charges $12 if you're not a student, RPI charges $10 per game (or you get a discount for buying season tickets) and Union's prices are either $8 or $10 depending on if you want grandstand or box seats. It cost me $5 to get into the Amherst-Hobart game in the NCAAs last year so that wasn't bad, but I don't know if Amherst charges for regular season games (I'd imagine they do).

No charge for regular season games. Attendance is abysmal, ( Amherst is a basketball school ) one of the worst in Dlll, charging would probably exacerbate an already unfortunate situation.
