Providence has one already, and my team is not getting one this yr.. so UMass Minutemen all the way. All the best, go Hockey East! Go N(U)Mass !
How the hell did UMass lose to BC and give up 32 shots? Watching them this weekend their opponents can't even get a shot on net.
It would be funny if UMass takes one home before UML
Congrats. Denver is a tough matchup. Keep flying up and down the ice and you'll be OK.
Impressive. Massively, massively impressive. Keep it up fellas.

I'm torn because there are a great deal of detestable UMass fans but Greg Carvel is legit and his team plays the game like it should be played. Fast, aggressive, relentless.
Also the Makar story is underplayed. Not him the player, but the story. Committed to John Micheletto! Given his tenure as coach it is unbelievable that Makar stayed with UMass and then still stayed with UMass during a coaching change before he arrived. Comes back for a 2nd year when most didn't think he would. The interview with his dad was great yesterday. Big fan of Makar, seems very well grounded and comes from a good family. Still sucks when you see guys leave after two years but this is an exception. He has been a tremendous "asset" and feather in the cap of the college route.

Hope you guys go all the way. That was a very impressive weekend. We didn't stand a chance against you on Friday. You came, you saw, you conquered.
I met Greg Carvel when he was doing some scouting (I think Anaheim but I could be mistaken) and we watched Harvard play SLU. The way he breaks down a game, strengths/weaknesses is like getting an education in Hockey 101. The fact that he walked away from his alma mater and took over a floundering program and has brought it to the Frozen Four in three years is immense. The pros will be looking at him very soon as a candidate for some opening.
