That's one ugly looking blue line.
I don't know if I agree with that. Badger and Furlong had some strong moments last year as freshmen, but Ruhwedel was solid as a frosh. If Lyles is any good, he should fit right in, so your top 2 d-lines are set. Corcoran is going to have to step up his play to get time, and we'll need a couple of the freshmen to step up this year. So there's potential there ...

Hope he gets a chance. Fair or not, he wasn't ever going to get a shot at Lowell.

Same as I don't think Massie will see the ice this year either.

No surprise. According to the Warrior Rink Rat (http://www.warriorrinkrat.com/2011/08/hockey-east-to-announce-fenway-park.html) site, Hockey East and Fenway Sports Group will officially announce the Fenway games (1/7/12) with a press conference Friday at Fenway Park.

Why do you think they'll include us anyhow?

Lets not go around hoping they'll appreciate us 'cause of our good character. My opinion... who cares about them... we're Lowell... let's do our own thing and out work them.

Waaaaay too much of a good thing. Last time was great because of the winter classic and BU BC matchup was the right 1 for the occasion. This is not gonna get me to come out on a January night.

On a different note, defending DII Champions UML Field Hockey (http://www.goriverhawks.com/sports/w-fieldh/spec-rel/082311aab.html) are voted #1 in the pre-season poll.
A nice article in today's Sun on the Field Hockey team: Targets on their backs. (http://www.lowellsun.com/sports/ci_18775575)

Everyone stay safe today.

If you want to watch Hockey it doesn't sound like you see much even in the 'good' seats. The ice stinks. I would go if Mr got free tix and it was our team, otherwise couldn't be bothered.

Patman....how'd you make it through the storm up in Arlington? We got blasted down here in Norfolk. Hope everyone stays (stayed) safe through the weather.

Nice and easy... power barely went out... I suspect it went out for a few seconds around 2:30 am when I was woken by my phone re-starting a charge (iphone... it buzzes when it connects). Didn't venture out much once it started raining... I did want to get something else done on Saturday but when the rain started earlier than I expected I bailed on that. No thunder, no lightning... pretty good wind but nothing terribly serious by any means.

Although the field hockey head coach is an alum ('98), with all of the success she's had at the DII level (2 NCAA titles, 6 NE-10 titles, 4 national coach of the year awards, and 7 NE-10 coach of the year awards - all in 9 seasons) I wouldn't be surprised to see a small-to-medium sized DI program to come in an try to poach her. Hopefully she's not a flight risk....and hopefully the ice hockey team can see some success with its new UML grad at the helm :D

Just over a month to go...

Nothing big in our yard. Phew.

I, for one, don't think she is going anywhere. In addition to being the field hockey head coach, she is also an assistant AD. It would have to be a significant offer for her to leave.

Here's an oddball thought... I wonder if US soccer would be any better off if it let colleges train for and compete in the US open cup

Lowell lost 2-1 BTW today.

Any updates on the Tsongas? Has the work been completed? Is the ice in yet?
