A bunch of nice looking respectable gentlemen. A bit surprised that 2 of the frehmen are Engineering Majors. But then again we always do seem to recruit true student-athletes.(unlike a few other schools):rolleyes:

I haven't gone through the effort of counting how many members of every roster majored in management vs other majors, but it seems that the percentage of non-management majors has been increasing steadily over the last decade or two.

Any news about how the hockey line was this year?

New mug shots, including the frosh, have been posted for both the men's and women's teams.

Bit of constructive criticism for whoever took the men's photos (on the off chance that this gets read by that person)... tone the flash down a bit... seems like most of the players' faces are washed out.

What do you want to know?

Sheer Idiocy, the Rensselyrics, and the Pep Band all performed (very well, too). The freshmen men also sang the fight song (not as well).

There was an LED countdown clock (which was a nice new addition from two years ago).

Red Army bought over 60 tickets, completely selling out Section 33.

All of the coaches and players were in attendance (as far as I could tell), and I had good conversations with Coach Burke, Coach Appert, and JFK.

My main question is whether there is apparently more interest in going to games than in last few years. It has seemed in reports that I have read in recent years that the hockey line was becoming an anachronism because tickets were always available, even good seats.


Did they sing the current version of the fight song or the old, non-PC, version? :D

Without a Peer's second podcast will broadcast live tomorrow, 9/17, at 7:30pm. Our scheduled guest is Ken Schott of the Schenectady Daily Gazette, who will appear at the top of the show.

Presently, our plans are to have a regular time for the podcast during the season, probably on Wednesday evenings. Hopefully, that'll start next week.

Interest was up from the past few years, but the line still wasn't around the side of the Union until after noon on Tuesday (which is surely quite different from the glory days).

As far as I can tell, the current version of the song was used.

Is there any interest in a Pick to Click contest for RPI games like a few other schools fans have been doing (IIRC, UW and NMU)?

The basic idea is that you pick one RPI player and one opponent player for each game in a weekend and get points for goals and assists (more for a dman IIRC) and for wins and shutouts if you select a goalie. You can't pick either of the two highest scoring players on a team, and you also can't pick the same player both days in a weekend. Stats are cumulative over the year.

I am not really interested in running this, but if there is significant interest in participating but no one steps forward, I will do it.

I would be interested in joining, and would also be a reserve standby for running it.

At the present, it's going to be entirely broadcast by B2. RPI TV will still be doing the production, but there will be no in-house streams this year. We're trying to arrange for a couple "free" games throughout the season, but that doesn't seem likely.

I hope that RPI will go with your direct stream when the contract is over.
