the bottom line (as it has been for almost 13 years) is that we are generally long on effort, short on talent...ELEVEN goals in ELEVEN home games this year...can you really blame people for not showing up...and my guess is that we could have scored 11 goals in 11 home games in Starr Rink and saved $38 million...enough already...clean house...
This is getting ridiculous. Iowa, did we actually come CLOSE to scoring?
Magoo, I totally agree with Gate83... very few really quality chances, although there were a couple of pings off the pipes... maybe one for each team. As for the goal, I would love to have seen a replay. To me, it looked like a ton of guys were just bangin’ at it at Mitch’s feet... not even sure he saw it go in. The fact that it was unassisted just told me that the Big Green player was the last to bang at it. They did a video review, confirmed the goal, but then no replay on the big screen.
Apparently I didn’t see that right, here is what Big Green posted on the Dartmouth page...
“Wow, last night's game vs Colgate was as even as it gets with BG eeking out a 1-0 victory. Both goalies were outstanding (they both were the best players on the ice last night) with Clark being a bit better than Benson. I am sure Benson would like that goal back he gave up to Jasiek. I do not believe he was ready for it, given the angle of it, between the bottom of the circle and goal line. I think Jasiek's shot actually banked off Benson's far leg as he opened up to the butterfly and trickles in five hole. The goal is listed as unassisted but credit Rutherford for tying his D man and creating the turnover for Jasiek. Also it helps the Jasiek is left handed to help his angle of shot. I do not believe a righty would have scored there. Good call by the coaches to have Jasiek (winger) take the offensive draw vs Baker (center and righty).”

game was quite even, Dartmouth (perhaps having slightly better scoring opportunities) did hit two posts...McMann had 11 shots on goal and was all over the ice...puck movement on PP simply too slow, too many passes not on the tape...we are now the second to last scoring team in all of DI (Alabama-Huntsville passed us last night)...we have players who have logged a lot of ice time this year who have ZERO goals...the team competes, no question...coming up, let's see if we can improve our recent record against Cornell: 4 wins, 22 losses, 7 ties...I'm not holding my breath, sadly...
Speaking of McMann, as I was going down the elevator after the game, an usher told me that he took a ‘cheap shot’ at a Dartmouth player after the final buzzer. Then a Dartmouth friend texted me last night... “Yes he got a 5 min slashing and a 10 min game misconduct. I think that puts him out tomorrow.” Anybody know if any or all of that is true?
Regarding the weather, I am staying in Utica this weekend and, right now, the streets are clear and it is not snowing yet.
Penalty was a slashing major and a game misconduct. He's fine to return tonight as it wasn't a DQ. If it had been a DQ then he would be automatically out tonight.
As to the goal, after 20 minutes of trying to get the game on ESPN+, I came in at the 8+ minute mark of the third and just as I got connected I saw the Big Green score the goal. It looked like a shot from the right winger ( a lefty) that somehow hit off a Dartmouth player - or even one of us - and thru Benson's 5-hole. The positive thing is that I saw the only goal of the game ( altho that's really a negative). The negative is that I continue to have problems with ESPN+ and miss 30-40 minutes of the final period :-/

Thanks, all, for the info on Bobby McMann.
And, obviously, John McGraw at Colgate Radio doesn’t need to worry about me taking over play-by-play. he he he
Apparently all New York State interstates are officially off-limits for motorcoaches and tractor-trailers starting at 3 p.m. today, so it could mean two-lane roads for the Dartmouth and Harvard team buses on their respective ways home. It is now snowing lightly in Utica.
Been snowing all morning in Hamilton, Iowa. Travel safe, will look for you at the rink!
As for McMann, like I stated he was flying and plenty dangerous most of the night. With about 10 seconds remaining in the game, Graber was pinning the puck along the wall along in an attempt to kill the clock. McMann comes in like he should along with other from both teams hacking and whacking. When times runs out, McMann slashes Graber by the ankle. It is purely a hockey play and although McMann slashed Graber I prefer to view it as there is a hockey player who cares and plays with passion. No harm no foul! See you down the road and good luck the rest of the way!
Thanks for the link to the Big Green highlights. Very kewl.
I do travel well. I took Amtrak/VIA Rail on Thursday to see Niagara Ice Dogs blow out Hamilton Bulldogs,10-0, in Saint Catharines, then back to Syracuse and drive to Hamilton. This morning, Highway 12-B was slick driving back to Hamilton from Utica, with one car in the ditch already. After today’s afternoon game, I will either go back to Utica for tonight’s AHL game and model railroad show tomorrow afternoon, or just drive back home to Owego. Weather and road conditions at 5:30 p.m. today will dictate that decision.
Harvard 12, Colgate 11, SOG after one.
Harvard 1, Colgate 0, score after one.
Two great opportunities in front of Harvard goalie.
But... one penalty against, one goal against.
Harvard 25,Colgate 19, SOG after two.
Harvard 2, Colgate 0, after two.
After playing them even in the first, Harvard started to really pull away in the second.
Maybe being content to just dump it into their end when we are behind 2-0 isn’t such a great strategy.

FlagDude, thanks for the AHL hockey heads-up. As of this morning, the toy train show was still a go... crazily. But, I think you right... heading home is probably the wise choice. I think the better team will ultimately win here, as the third period just started...
Harvard 35, Colgate 30, final SOG.
Harvard 2, Colgate 1, final score.
Pick your fave...
“we didn’t give up”
“too little, too late.”
So one goal on the weekend and no points in the ECAC standings. Harvard bottled us up defensively. The men tried hard but were up against a talented team. We will need to come out with fire next weekend vs the Big Red.
