    I do own a copy, but I never asked Kurt to sign it.

    Did he say "stuff it"?

    This may be the official start for many but for me the season started today as my engineer left for school today.

    Nothing like a couple of good plugs to generate some current sales and, of course, royalties.

    Though not intended at the time of initial release, the best thing about the book in the present is that it ends just as the past 15 seasons were beginning.

    This had already been reported by Jeff Cox, but it's official now that Hayhurst will indeed be at Michigan next season. Wish him all the best

    For the football fans - RPI is ranked 19th in d3football.com's preseason top 25 poll. The Engineers received 152 points in the poll.

    Ithaca got 42 points in the poll, not enough to make the top 25. The Bombers are the only one of RPI's scheduled 2019 opponents who received any points in the poll at all.

    Brockport, whom RPI defeated in the playoffs last year, is ranked 13th. Johns Hopkins, to whom RPI lost in the third round, is ranked 6th.

    You also predicted that Mahshie would get #14. That has to be wrong.

    I count 25 players. Can anyone identify who is missing?

    No breach of anything confidential as Hudson Valley has it clearly listed on their schedule but, for those who live in the Capital District, the football team will scrimmage HVCC on Sunday, August 25 at 9 A.M at RPI.

    Generally, the first half hour or so is spent working on short yardage goal line plays and some extra points and short field goals (kind of boring). However, when done with that, a scrimmage starts which simulates either most of a regulation game or all of one.

    Lately, RPI has pretty much dominated the scrimmage as HVCC football has fallen in to lean times. It was not always so. Back in 2003, when RPI went to the national semi-final against St. John's, they started that season by losing the scrimmage to HVCC and were handily outplayed.

    With all of the roster turnover I'd need an Interpol most wanted poster in order to ID the missing lad...

    I actually did this yesterday. Missing players are Tommy Lee, Jakub Lacka and Owen Savory. I believe the last one is Cory Babichuk, but I also had trouble identifying lots of the freshmen. I'm not sure who the 2 players are in the red in the second row on the right side or the player in black in the back row. (My guesses were Simon Kjellberg, Rory Herrman and Alec Calvaruso, respectively). Regardless, the last missing player is a freshman

    Not good with the pictures, but Tommy Lee was not present at the event.

    I was at the golf outing, and can confirm both Jakub and Owen were there. Had the pleasure of sitting at dinner with both Jakub and Ottoville (who were also paired up on the course). Have to say, love Ottoville's dry humor. They were excited to have a Swede joining them this year, though OL remarked it's not as good as a Fin. Also, apparently Jakub is sharing a locker this year due to the large roster size (and that he wouldn't complain since he's too nice, per OL).

    Attendance was bigger than last year, though that isn't saying much since it was sparse then. I counted 27 foursomes, certainly down from the 40+ during the Appert hey-day; that being said the speed on the course was much better than in years past. Notably absent from the event/dinner were two people who have featured prominently in the past - Dino Macaluso (who has emceed in the past / ran the auction) and Father Ed. Not sure what to read that as. Peter Pedone was at the dinner, which was a welcome surprise since I have sorely missed his involvement with the Alumni House since he left (he was happy to not be running the event for once, and instead enjoying it).

    A few changes to the overall formatting. After last year's embarrassing auction of the 'big ticket' items (Night on the bench, golf outing with the coach, etc), these were moved to a silent auction where you'd place your bid on the corresponding sheet. They also created a 'pass' where $30 got you entry into the coach's challenge, putting competition, and the penalty shot (hit the golf ball into a hockey net 180 yards out and you'd get a hole in 1 on the par 5).

    Overall, both Coach Smith & AD McElroy talked up the positive momentum the program has and how they are looking to make big steps. It was admitted the program is still a work in progress, and they are working to translate the strong team cohesion into on-ice results. Coach also joked that he knows the fans 'are with us, win or tie." Also mentioned was $200k in facelifts/updates to the HFH - Coach seemed to indicate most was around the locker room, however McElroy said to look for the changes to the HFH when you get there to see a game?
