    Modesty or disgust?

    Some DI colleges with successful hockey programs are never the subject of posts on this site. Others constantly have multiple threads. Is this phenomenon caused by the modesty of fans from these phantom programs, or is it geography, or something else?

    Is there some glaring omission of this team or that team? I'd be hard pressed to answer without really taking a look.

    Some teams have message boards elsewhere, Cornell for instance.

    Successful as in what--tradition or just winning? If you need to know the difference, an expert will be along shortly.

    Nope. There is no other Cornell board. This is the only place to talk about them, so if you're going to do discuss them it should be here and not anywhere else.

    Cornell '04, Stanford '06

    I would talk about Cornell, but as my Dear Departed Mother always told me, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything'"

    I can't think of a single successful hockey program that has not been the subject of posts on this sight. let me know which ones it is, and I will start a "going downt the tubes" thread to get them going.

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    Yeah, it's kind of surprising and a real shame that there isn't one. Oh well. Just think how awesome "RedSports" or "BigRedPuckLive" could be...

    Atlantic Conference teams?

    [Maybe the problem is one's definition of "successful." Undefeated? National champs? Competitive?]

    Arizona. And I'm surprised that I've never been charged more than 99 cents for the large can. Best value? Oh yeah.

    I would have to respectfully disagree, I strongly prefer Snapple but if we are talking about gas station tea then the Arnold Palmer teas are the best IMO.
