Just got 5 tix for BC on 2/17. Wanted the Sat UNH game but tix look like they are already selling briskly. This team keeps winning & the crowds will start growing.
Lots of divergent posts lately, but most of them still make sense either in one way or the other. Things are getting lively on here, which is a consequence of Maine playing better hockey. It's a win for all of us at this point.
CHN: Red Hot Maine
Pretty good quotes from Red on his team to this point in the season.

Just looking at some D-1 stats...it's a testament to hockey unpredictability that former Maine and BU goalies Romeo (Ohio St) and LaCouvee (Minny St) are currently #'s 6 and 8 nationally in GAA. Good for both of them. Romeo couldn't stop much of anything as a Black Bear. How does he now have .928/1.93 stats over 18 games? Goalie lessons?
The best comparison we can hope for on this team is the 09 sqaud, young guns not quite ready that grew into what shouldve been a great team the next 2 years. Hopefully Swayman stays and doesnt have Darlings issues and some of these talented kids turn into Abbotts and Flynns.
As for why people dump on red, again, newsflash when you lose 20 games three years in a row you get dumped on. Ive asked this before and found no answer: What successful coach has bounced back from a stretch like that? Id like to be patient but I have serious doubts based on the results on the ice.
BU Hockey: The trophy case is once again growing
(Let's further stipulate than 20 loss seasons that are only so bad because of forfeits/sanctions don't count).
Maine Hockey: I want to believe
43-21-4 (.662) in games I attended over 4 years as a student
104-47-14 (.669) in that time
3x FROZEN FOUR
10-20-2 in games I've attended since. (1-2-1 under Red)
