In honor of Kristen Jakubowski, today is 9 September 2010. There are 26 days until RPI's next game.


This is based upon 5 October for the start of next season.

I'm not even going to ask.

(OK, I'm done.)

Wait until we get up to Nona in a few days. :eek: ;)

UNB was 27-1 in AUS conference play last season, winning 26 in a row. Unfortunately they were upset in the playoffs by a game StFX squad who rode a hot goaltender and played a perfect trap game -- much like Montreal did to Pittsburgh last season.

This season UNB will be hosting the CIS University Cup tournament (the Canadian Frozen Four but with six teams) in March, and are pretty much focused this season on redeeming for their playoff exit ... when they were the prohibitive favourite to win the national title.

As you indicated, UNB can play. RPI and the other squads best be ready...:D

Given the moniker of the UNB team, are we going to have to switch over to "Let's Go 'Tute" or "Let's Go White" for the evening, similar to when we play that other ECAC team that wears red and white?

I realize most would know our purpose, at least if we use very proper diction to make sure the S doesn't come out. :eek: :p

Hello everybody. I just wanted to let everyone know about the new features that are coming into being at Without a Peer.


Without a Peer: Now with 30% more fiber! (http://www.withoutapeer.com/2010/09/now-with-30-more-fiber.html)

Here's the long and the short of it. We're going to have a weekly live podcast, which actually got underway last night. Don't worry, you didn't miss it, we intentionally didn't announce it ahead of time so we could do a dress rehearsal, but it turned out pretty well, so you can now listen to it on demand.


Without a Peer podcasts (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/withoutapeer)

Since there's no regular weekly radio show revolving around the Engineers... we'll just go ahead and make one of our own. During live shows, listeners will be able to call in and ask questions or opine - and we expect to have guests every week as well.

In conjunction with our live tweets during games, we're going to try out in-game chats. Expect some mid-week moderated chats and more interviews during the season as well.

We've also added a tip jar at the top of the page. We think these new features make WaP an even better place to get news and opinion, but they aren't free. Since we don't believe in assaulting you with ads, we'd instead like to ask you, if you read WaP regularly, to consider a donation. 100% of the money raised will go directly into the site, Gary and I won't be using one bit of it for personal use.

Thanks for checking us out over the last 10 months. We want to earn your readership with every post - and I personally hope you get even more out of the site when these new features come firmly into place.

UNB's school colours by the way are red and black, but the home uni is mostly white ... and the team nickname is the V-Reds as Varsity Reds is a bit of a mouthful. Until the mid-90's the team was known as the UNB Red Devils ...

I have never understood this practice. Why should we change anything that we do when another team comes into our barn? Cornell or UNB or whoever has no more claim to "Let's go Red" than we do.

I realize this. You realize this. Several other posters on here realize this. Unfortunately there are some that don't, and frankly, I've grown tired of trying to argue this point with them.

I use the ReloadEvery add-on with Firefox to refresh the message board thread automatically. Old busted hotness! :D :p

But in all seriousness, I look forward to the new WaP features.

Tom Cool, now Ken Schott and the less-than-mildly-interested Roger Wyland will have some much needed competition... Forgive my Luddite ignorance, but other than time, what expenses are there to maintaining a website ?? Software? I honestly don't know.

I would imagine it has to do with the talk radio portion of the fiber. Anyone can script a chat, unless they plan to work with WRPI to integrate the game feed. Naturally there's also the cost of webspace, which I'm sure they are already enduring.

This season UNB will be hosting the CIS University Cup tournament (the Canadian Frozen Four but with six teams) .


The exchange rate even effects college hockey! :D

Good one.

The University Cup has the winners of the AUS conference, the Canada West conference, the two winners from the OUA conference (basically a double-conference with teams from Ontario and Quebec), a host team and a revolving wild card.

Since CIS hockey is not normally a big draw, in order to get host cities to compete and bid (generating $$$ for the CIS), the host school gets an automatic spot at the University Cup. The wild card rotates between the three conference, with now the proviso that no conference can have more than three teams (including the host) at the tournament.

The host school is in no matter what? Even if they're 2-28? Wow...
