I don't normally listen to this podcast unless (from DnC website) unless I see RIT in the summary. But in the most recent one we were so I gave it a listen. They discuss RIT about 3/4s of the way through. What was interest was Sal Maliora (sp?) was really pushing for more local media coverage and that its a great product. Nice to see some in the media push for more attention for the program

It may be just me, but that and a dollar gets you a cup of coffee. Now if we were 19th in PWR and/or RPI, that's a different story.

Of course being # 19 only means that you're in the top 1/3 (32.76% to be precise) of all the teams in D-I. Whooppee
They really should keep the rankings down to 15 in college hockey. That's still a relatively high number compared to only 58 teams, but at least right around the cutoff for tournament qualification (assuming the AHA champ the only "unranked" team to get in). To say a team is "Top-20" in D-I means so much more in football (100+ teams) and that much more so in basketball (300+ teams). It indicates some level of excellence. "Top-20" in hockey just means you're good, and that's it. Big deal.

Question from an out of towner....I am going to be in Rochester on Friday night, will I be able to get a ticket to the game that evening? Figured since I won't see my own team play this weekend, I will watch someone else play!

most likely not - games have been selling out early. Call the box office and purchase it now would be my suggestion

Most games sell out the afternoon of. The Air Force games sold out over 24 hours ahead of time. As suggested, call the box office and do will-call.

From someone who has seen a game at The Ritter and at The Blue, get your ticket early. It is one of the best atmospheres for college hockey. Be prepared, the fans don't miss a thing...wear Orange.

Thanks guys, don't know if I can wear orange, since it would make me look like a pumpkin! Got a couple tickets to the game today on your advice. We played Canisius in late December, but it will be the first time I've seen you play. Looking forward to it!

I'd love to hear your opinion on the game and atmosphere afterwards. You should post your thoughts later.

The BCHL website has a video interview (http://www.bchl.bc.ca/leagues/inside_videos.cfm?leagueID=2393&clientID=1413)with Tiger Recruit Brad MacGowan, who is currently #2 in scoring in the BCHL with a line of 32g-50a-82pts in 53 games.

Also, another recruit Matt Garbowsky of the Powell River Kings leads the BCHL in goals scored with a line of 40g-30a-70pts in 51 games. He's 8th in points and was just named BCHL player of the week with 5g-5a over 3 games last week.

Great Find!

My reasoning was that at 19 in those rankings, it would be easier to move into "at-large" consideration. RIT is now hanging on in the TUCs but there is little benefit for them to be there. Now I'm sure RPI, UNO, Merrimack, and Union would love RIT to stay in the good side of the TUC line.

We'll need to amp up the corner crew just for you.

Canisius will be enough to have the Corner Crew at full amp. We will go to 11. ;)

I work for a band. Nothing you amp up will compete with what I deal with daily.

Yeah, but the goal here is to prove we're the best hockey atmosphere, not that we play loud music badly. ;)

Oh man. Low blow. I work for one of the biggest contemporary Celtic bands in the world. We are playing the next night in Geneseo. See if I offer YOU a ticket to the event! I will compare your hockey atmosphere though, having been in dozens of the college hockey rinks around the country in my lifetime! Right now, Cady Arena (Miami of Ohio) is right up there for small rinks with atmosphere. They are the rink to beat in my opinion!

Yikes, no kidding. Keep it in the reserves, in case she comes back and says the Ritter is garbage :P

The Elders definitely do not play crap music. I was planning to see them at the Great American Irish Fest here in Utica the end of July. Unfortunately I have to miss them because my son decided that would be a good weekend to get married in North Carolina.

Who?

The Elders (http://www.eldersmusic.com/), a Celtic band from Kansas City. More Irish and less rock than Dropkick Murphy's. Listening to their music puts you in the mood to drink Guiness, eat Corned Beef & Cabbage, and look for four leaf clovers....even if you're not Irish.
