When playing on back-to-back days Yale has been much better then first night (7-1) versus the second (3-2-3). Yale has also shown the ability to play big in big games this year.

I expect Blase to get the start against Colgate, and if they put up a W, again the next night against Cornell.

Amazingly, Yale is 4-1-1 vs Cornell over last 3 years and hasn't lost at Lynah since 2004. Is that enough to Jinx them? Let's hope not.....

Colage? Is this an intentional goof on Colgate or a terrible spelling blunder that wasn't picked up on the first time? ;)

Anyway, I'm not expecting any results for Brown this weekend. We're always horrible against Cornell and "Colage" in general, but especially at Lynah and Starr. A single point from the weekend would be a surprise.

Yale's record is incredible against Cornell at Lynah recently! Good for you guys. Brown won there a couple years ago, but it was an absolute shock when it happened. We've become fairly accustomed to just going up there and losing.

Ylae and Brom will both beat Colage.

It's COLGATE, COLGATE, COLGATE.....not Colage!

After a terrible showing vs. QU this weekend, who knows what team will show up at Starr on Frdiay? We do play better in our barn, and have a score to settle with Yale after last year's unbelievable meltdown.

Brown, not so much. The Bruno could take us by surprise if we hold off Yale. Splits on the weekend seem to be our MO right now...:(

Clogate is the appropriate misspelling of Colgate.

Colage is the new fan favorite misspelling, however.

I see that yhf fixed the misspelling in his post as well as the thread title on that post. Of course, that doesn't actually fix the thread title. :)

This last weekend showed Cornell's warts. Ironically, they won the game in which they were outplayed and lost the game that, absent a very rare sieve performance by Scrivens, they played well enough to win.

Yale seems to be just getting stronger, so at the moment I'd say they have the slight edge Saturday. They are the kind of team -- fast, finesse -- that gives us fits.

It definitely sounds like a game that will go to whichever team the refs want to win. :)

Could someone elaborate the meaning of these misspellings? I was told "Brom" is an old USCHO joke. I'm guessing the same with Ylae and Clogate?

Right now Colgate is the laughingstock of the ECAC after laying a goose egg vs. Quinnipiac. But you'll never know which 'Gate team will show up to play this coming weekend. As far as Brown goes, well they usually put on a clunker of a performance at Starr, but were able to win there last season...

I would be positively shocked if Brown got any more than a point this weekend. Cornell is just too deep, and with the Bears skating without a couple top forwards and getting thinner by the day, Brown likely doesn't have the horses to hang with Cornell. It would take a special goaltending performance, which is also a bit too hopeful given Mike Clemente's inconsistencies over the past month.

In terms of Colgate, Brown may be able to squeeze a point or better out if they can hold the top line in check. Again, given the Bears' predilection for d-zone miscues, a shoddy PK, and inconsistencies on the PP, it may be asking a bit much. Coupling that with the fact that Brown has won twice at Starr since the Nixon administration leads to my thinking that this game is Colgate's to lose.

On the intangibles' front, Brown enters the weekend two points behind Harvard (hosting RPI/Union) and three behind Quinnipiac (visiting SLU and Clarkson) for a potential home ice series in the first round. After laying an egg at home (only 1 point this past weekend), my guess is the guys will be itching to go with so much at stake with each passing game.

I wonder who is going to pull out big wins this weekend. Cornell needs to play very well against yale this weekend. The refs will play a huge roll, with both powerplays being very good. I wonder who they will be for this big game. This up in comming weekend is going to be great games.

Brom and Ylae are old jokes. Not familiar with Clogate, though I would have guessed Coglate would have caught on first. But what do I know?

The Raiders have been inconsistent this year, but we do have a tie with Yale from October. I generally still like our chances playing on home ice, so that gives me confidence going into the weekend. Evin has really settled in nicely to the #1 job, so if he keeps that up, and we get actual contributions from the offense (*cough*QuinnipiacSt.Lawrence*coughcough*), we should have a real opportunity for 4 points. Consistent effort and level of play is going to be the key, because we're not really good enough to play poorly and win

No I think Clarkson clinched that spot for the season this past weekend.

I watched the QU-Colgate game on CBSCS (great coverage, BTW) and I thought he looked great. The team's offense is really what let it down, because Evin had a tremendous game and the defense kept a very potent QU attack under control for the most part.

Brom comes from a drunken rant on this site, which also include a reference to PROVICED, Hockey Rast, and a few other beauties, if I'm not mistaken.

Ylae comes from the old ECAC chatroom, which a bunch of us used to use while listening to games on the radio, before the days of good real-time score updates. Somebody (Vic?) tried to type Yale and it came out Ylae. The next entry on the screen was an attempt to fix that one word, and was misspelled again. Then a third time. From then on, every time anybody misspelled a word, everyone else would just type "Ylae." It stuck.



You had to be there. But it was funny at the time. :)

Thanks. The "Ylae" history sounds very amusing. Even more amusing was the positive rep I received for my post asking if "Brom, Ylae, etc." were old USCHO jokes. A comment was left informing me that "St, Clooud" is part of that bunch too. It just makes me want to laugh for no reason. (No offense to anyone. I've only been posting here for 2 years so it's kinda new to me.)

The funniest part about that one is that it was coined by a Union fan.

one of the biggest game of the year and no chatter???? this game between cornell and yale is going to be huge on Sat. Why isn't there more chatter on it.

Who do people think is going to win? I think ut is going to be hard for yale to perform in that hostel enviorment.
