    BC has become the Pawtucket Red Sox for Clarkson. Let's hope there are no injuries for Clarkson that require a mid-season call-up from BC.

    The PawSox have long been the class of their league.

    Honestly I think most Eastern fans would lend a cheer to Clarkson, while most Western fans would offer support to UW.

    Obviously there are notable exceptions. In the case of intense arch-rivals, regional loyalties do tend to fall by the wayside. Yes, transfers may create hard feelings in the short run. And of course some fans have connections to both regions. Each of those things complicates the picture. But overall, I believe that regional loyalty is the leading factor when deciding who to root for as a neutral fan.

    Just one fan's experience -- But in the 2019 UW/Clarkson Semi-Final, I was quietly rooting for UW. Not because I wanted Clarkson to lose. It actually made me a little sad to root against Kassidy. But my bottom line was that I wanted the WCHA to win.

    FWIW.

    Really? I don't think UW has won enough to be in that realm and MJ is a more than likeable fellow and is a USA hockey legend, whereas Steinbrenner had an ego the size of Texas and was basically a turd.

    In women's hockey I also have regional leanings, but only in women's hockey. All other sports it's my team or nothing. Clarkson has definitely solidified my regional allegiance, with BC's assistance. In an eastern VS MN Natty game I'm not rooting for the eastern teams. Evah.

    Likewise, despite the intense rivalry between the Badgers and my Gophers, when it comes down to a East vs. Wisconsin NCAA final, pains me to say it, I will hope for "that Western team". The recent "recruiting?" of talented transfers by Clarkson only reinforces those geographic sentiments.

    Clarkson draw 21 year old transfers and seem to steer clear on recruiting 12 year olds. I donít know what is more acceptable!

    And I wonder how many other schools were "recruiting" those talented transfers and they decided that Clarkson was the best choice for them?

    So is it acceptable for Minn and Wisco to recruit 12 year olds but not go after 21 year old transfers? Just wondering your opinion?

    That would be interesting to learn about for sure.

    I didn't approve of the former either when it was permitted! To discourage the latter I would support a one year eligibility "sit rule" (except in the case of Clarkson, two years).

    Apparently dad is quite the handful. Certainly doesn't help.

    Most places the fish learn after getting caught a couple times not to go after the bait,
    but these upstate NY fish never seem to learn and get caught time and time again.
    You can catch and release until you get tired of catching the same two fish.

    Then you have to eat them. Who doesn't love a plate of fried fish with marble rye and some slaw?

    Today on ESPN Sports Center saw Kenzie Kent get 5 goals (One doozy made the Top 10) against MD but alas final score was MD 12 BC 10 for the NC$$ Womens Lacrosse Championship. A 2 sport star at BC, quite the young lady.
