Exactly! It takes a Sioux fan and a Tiger fan to inform the Pioneer (or is it the Roadrunners from Metropolitan State in Denver?) fans.

:p:D:D

I'm probably a whole lot more sympathetic to Denver than most Sioux/CC fans though. I'll be going to school there either this fall or next. :)

Who needs Puck Swami and Randy May when we got Old Pio, DG, Tig and ronmexico to throw the punches!

Randy May (RM)... ronmexico (RM)... It's the same person right?

The real story is one of the Denver (or is it Metro State?) player's father confronted Swami face-to-face regarding Swami's negative post's on the board and the two had a heated exchange due to the father blaming Swami for the lack of success the team had this past season. My sources have provided a minute by minute account of that confrontation but details will not be posted here. A lot of drama going on at Metro State (or is it Denver State?) right now!

Putz. "Lack of success?" Certainly not when compared to that incomparable record of failure at Clown College.

Are you sure which school you will be going to? Is it Denver State, Denver University, Metro State, Metro University, or The Metropolitan State College at Denver? I wonder which school has the hockey team?

No worries mate, look on the bright side. Now that you are becoming the Metro State Roadrunners you will have a real mascot!! No more Boone, and bring on Rowdy the Roadrunner!!

On a side note, CC has Statesmen, your school (whatever you are called these days) has Sinbad!! Clown is on you!!

I'll be going to the Sturm College of Law to be specific. :)

I believe he also re-aggrivated the injury at a camp up in Canada.I'm pretty sure this is also not true. DU Law School will be good for you. :-)

I would agree as well. My brother went to law school there about 10 years ago, and he had very positive things to say (he also has his undergrad degree from UND).

As for the story about the re-aggrivated injury, it came from Chambers' article in the print version of the Post. It would not be surprising to me in the least if Chambers was lying again. :p:D:D

It's totally a bummer that Sam will be out for most of the year. I suggest they red shirt him and if he does heal in time and we need him then they can revoke the red shirt.

I honestly think Murray will rock and suprise a lot of the nay sayers......

I think Murray will be pretty good too, but I'm not as sure about redshirting Sam. There was no guarantee he was gonna stay for 4 years already, now in order for the redshirt to be worthy, you'd be asking him to stay around 5. I'm just curious if that's likely.

Well, by redshirting Sam for this upcoming year, an injury hardship waiver can be granted and give DU some extra scholarship leverage incase Murray does not work out as a full time starter. It all depends on how much confidence there really is in Murray within the program and how realistic it is for Sam to come back at all during next season. If it were me, I would bring in the highest-end recruit I could and see who pans out, then hopefully have Sam come back the next year and weigh my options between Murray and "the highest-end recruit I could get" before determining what happens next.

Works on paper, but some top end recruits might be scared off. Yes, Denver's a good program, but not only come in and have to fight a talented guy in Murray, but then at the end of the year or next year have to battle a probably more talented guy in Brittain? A very good goalie could end up third in that rotation a year from now.

Personally, I'm just looking at it as "what happens if Murray gets hurt?". If Murray does get hurt, then DU would have to go with some random walk-on and probably who ever played goalie the most recently in their lives as the backup...scary thought. Gotta cover yourself for all possibilities but, yeah, it won't be the easiest sell to a young kid with big hopes and dreams...Gwoz will have to come up with something pretty creative. Sam's injury is quite possibly the biggest blow to the program I have ever seen...

And the way this thing worked out is crushing. An injury sustained last season, to the guy we all thought could be dominant at his position this year. Effectively a season ending injury. In June! GD it. I think Adam will rise to the occasion, but you're right, we need someone to back him up and that's going to be problematic.

Over Chevy leaving early?

Over Chevy leaving early?

Chevy leaving early allowed Brittain to come in a year early...didn't really lose much there. If we didn't have Brittain waiting in the wings, then (yes) losing Chevy early would have been pretty devastating...
