    I can't escape the stupid. I was wearing my Maine hockey jersey at work tonight and a guy walks up and tells me it was a long weekend for the Bears. "Yeah, it's going to be a long season."
    'Think there's any chance they hire the coach who went to Denver?'
    "Jim Montgomery?"
    'Yeah, him!'

    *sigh*
    I mean..... IF Dallas craters like St Louis did before Christmas last year.....and then.....

    Nah.

    In any event, not accomplished. Didn't he also say if he couldn't get it done, he'd leave?
    He did indeed say that...but I guess it's a lot like his Program...not worth much.

    Iíd bet quite a few fans still think Monty is at Denver. Most people have busy lives and itís easy to miss and/or forget a story like him going to Dallas.

    When I was at Maine -during the late Pleistocene, granted- football was abysmal and largely ignored by the students.

    Well UAA/Maine weekend is almost here....I am hoping for two wins but would take a split. WHO KNOW's RIGHT..? But here is what Maine CAN'T DO (imo) ...They have to muster some type of offence, like scoring more then 2 goals per game...get shots on goal...if under 20 shots per game they are in trouble...keep UAA under 30 shots per game...again if 30 plus for UAA then Maine is in trouble...and finally keep the penalty's down...4 or less per game...if they go over 5 per game then you could very well see a ugly weekend for Maine Hockey. This is a type of weekend that can be a positive for Maine, but if they play like the PC/UNB games then we can only be in for a long-long season. Myself I going with the split side: Friday; Maine 4 UAA 1 -- Saturday; UAA 3 Maine 1

    Whatever happens, let's all promise not to get too excited if there's a Maine sweep. Let's learn from opening with St. Lawrence last year. UAA is flying six time zones to play its first games of the year, and went 3-28-3 last season, AND is dealing with rumors that the team won't exist past this season. If Maine were any good these would be two 5-0 wins at the very least.

    Oh I hear you loud and clear...UAA has much going against them in that the long trip over, a returning team that did not play very good all season long and the dreaded lost of their program after this season...they are worst off then Maine...but then they could come in with nothing to lose and stun Maine....I see a split, but should Maine lose both......well oh my the blank will fly....but you are right...two wins by Maine should not be a ticker-tape parade from I-95 to the Alfond either

    Two wins by UAA might be cause for a different type of parade from Alfond to the Gym.

    Is Maine still showing games for free on the website or has that changed this year?

    As far as I know they still are, I have a friend who graduated last year and is now at grad school in Oregon who watched the UNB game from out there.

    $9.95 a month, but it literally never ends unless you get a new card. Shame they got mixed up with such a dodgy outfit.

    Alfond is empty tonight.

    Greenway (Tralmaks, Fossier) 1:14 1 1-0 Maine
    Doherty (Westerlund, Sirota) 4:25 1 2-0 Maine

    Maine has scored on both its shots.

    Either the UAA goalie is an absolute sieve, or the Black Bears have finally found their mojo. Either way, great to see them on the scoreboard!

    It is fall break this weekend, so lots of kids head home for the long weekend, but it is a weak showing, I agree. Im up here though!
