Young Alumni tickets

This offer is available to undergrad and graduate school alumni, who have earned their degree within the last five years (2015-19).
Young alumni season membership packages will be offered in white level seating only and for full-season plans only.
Football has certainly deserved the spotlight in Orono of late, and why not? Seeing Maine hockey these past 7 years has been somewhat less interesting than watching paint dry. If not for football, Maine would have nothing like a National footprint in any sport aside from field hockey and women's hoops.
We're ticketed-up for the Colgate game, and hoping for a good start, and another playoff run. Last season was big fun.

I can't see Maine football repeating last year with a new coach but hopefully they can as last year was fun. Maybe picking the new coach from last years staff helps with continuity and keeps some of the systems in place? The pressure will be higher this season
I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.
Maine Hockey Love it or Leave it
Tough news out of UNH with coach Sean McDonnell out for a while with health issue. Want that Musket but I want it from him! Get well soon!
Yet, Maine has somehow recruited well for several years, and has been in the mix for some time now, while bucking the odds.
Would love to see the Bears back in the equation this season, and -I'll say it- it appears that they have a good shot at that.
From the 60 Days/60 Teams/600 words piece for Gopher Hockey Blog
Outside an overtime loss to UNH, the only schools who beat Maine during 2019 made the NCAA Tournament. The Black Bears defeated Boston University 6-0, split with Providence and Massachusetts, and beat Boston College and young Oliver Wahlstrom three times, including a 7-2 rout in Chestnut Hill. Only Northeastern found a way to stay unbeaten (4-0-0) during that stretch.
If anyone best represents Maine, it's Swayman. Despite having represented the US in the World Juniors, the goaltender quietly and successfully faced his share of shots. He made more saves than any other underclassmen. A .919 save percentage is respectable from a team that finished below .500. When things go well, it's flawless. When they don't, the mistakes and goals pile up.
Like Yale, the Black Bears have had highs and lows (as well as undefeated when leading after two periods and winless when losing after two periods). Maine got support from its top line of Mitchell Fossier-Chase Pearson-Eduards Tralmaks and really got going when its second line of Brendan Robbins-Tim Doherty-Jacob Schmidt-Svejstrup did. Like Boston College, the sport has been becoming used to the Black Bears not being a Frozen Four regular (although even more in Maine's case).
