Hey everybody! New to posting on these boards and just wanted to say hello. A small group of us from the Ohio State area jumped on the UAH bandwagon after hearing about your conference plight. I have often wore my "The CCHA Hates Biscuits" shirt out and have gotten a few questions about it up here. Looking forward to discussing UAH hockey with you all, and Geoff, you should be commended for all you do with the program! Job well done!

I am but one of many. I'm just loud.

Is there going to be some sort of ticket package option for the double-header with the Predators?

I was at a hockey camp in Huntsville tonight and Coach Luongo was a guest coach. He is a very nice guy, knows his hockey, and can command a room. I think I shocked him a little bit when I took a puck to the ovaries area and was like "ow!!!! shot to the baby maker!!!" lmao. He looked at me like I had 2 heads. lol. But it was a fun skate and he seems like a great guy. He talked a bit about the Chargers and next season. Sounds like the Chargers are being led by a good one and he's excited for the season.

Ralph, thanks for the link. That was a very nice write-up about the program. The only thing he missed, I think, was that Coburn and Jarvinen aren't coming back this season (correct me, guys, if I'm wrong about that). I hope they play their hearts out and do well (a .500 season would be fantastic in my book). And, I have to give props to RPI for helping about the Chargers this year. It's appreciated by us fans more than I can convey in a blog for the 'tute to step up and fill four schedule dates (and come down to the South for New Year's Eve). I'm sure H'ville will show the Engineers a great time. Regards!

Oh? I must have missed that if you're right. Arrgh. That's less than cool.

I can confirm that. I talked to Chris Fairbanks this afternoon and he said Coburn is playing in England. Jarvinen's jersey was auctioned off last year if I recall correctly and we got confirmation that he was heading back to Finland to play in the leagues there. Both will be missed, but those are the breaks. Big freshman class coming in, but we'll grow. We do need to put in a good showing though. I know the players I've talked to think a .500 season is a very important minimum.

Solid article though, despite the few mistakes (We were 3rd in the conference last year, not 4th). We look forward to seeing RPI this year.

Hasn't been announced yet, but I expect there will be.

I have been asked to write some for Tom in the next, oh, 12 hours. Yet I'm here on USCHO. Heh.

Yeah, that was a big, bad failboat on my part for not checking back far enough. I saw something about the "Finnish Connection" but didn't notice that one was heading back to Finland. My bad. I've made the corrections.

I noticed that you guys are playing BGSU three times thanks to the tournament - so that might end up being 6 total games against 2 teams. Not that you're not already used to playing a lot of games against the same teams, of course...

Eh, I wasn't criticizing you for that. It's not been made much of it.

As for the games ... yeah, there was a point when it looked like we might play two home-and-home series with CHA opponents every year just to get games in the four-team CHA. I think the limiter there was Bemidji, which was able to get scheduled by WCHA teams.

To be fair Geof, I knew Coby wasn't returning before final exams started. He told me himself in mid-April. It wasn't any big secret as I think he'd already told several others before I asked him about it. It was merely a question of where he was going to be, which honestly I didn't know until recently and Chris just confirmed that information. It's a lot easier to say he's gone when you can point to where he has gone to.

You did have the leg up on me on Jarvie though (as you usually do in most 'insider scoops'), and I found out about that at the Awards Banquet.

Yeah, you were the first person to tell me about Coburn.

Thanks for the support...will be in C'bus with pretty good size group from Cincy.

A few of my crew are going to work to make the trip up from Huntsville. Hope the tOSU fans return the favor next season when the Buckeyes come to Alabama.

With the series being the first week of November, still during football season, there might not be a very sizable and rowdy crowd, so it might not be much of a home-ice advantage for the Bucks. Although with the football team having a bye, Ohio State students may need an outlet for their usual weekend drunken rage.

I've talked to a couple of "important" people who give a lot of money to tOSU and they don't appear to be too excited about the new regime. Don't feel like it's worth their time to go see the Ice Bucks.
