    They have known they are playing with fire in that compressor room, tonight it finally bit them. Will be interesting to see if it is fixed in time for the womens game tomorrow night.

    From what I heard, the issue centers around a fire inspection that happened today at the Whitt and "someone forgeting to turn on a switch" or "turned on the wrong switch" I don't think that it's because of a failing compressor, it sounds more like someone failing to do their job properly.

    I would think that the games tomorrow and Sunday at the Whitt should be good to go.

    Well it wouldn't be at SNHU, since the "Kings of NH Hockey" are gone they have a lot of scheduled concerts and events that will actually fill the arena and a lot of UNH's remaining home games would be in conflict. I doubt they have a contingency plan to do anything outside of the Whitt at this point, could be interesting if the failures continue.

    Even better is the fact that Merrimacks "The Mack Report" put out a tweet of the game being postponed 5-10 minutes before it was announced in the arena. Little to no communication while this was going on in the arena during the limbo of whether the game will happen or not. Terrible marks all around on this one, step up your game UNH. I can accept the s**t happens in terms of the ice issues but at least keep people in the loop of what is going on.

    The article details how the incident had to do with the compressors and how they are reaching the end of their useful life.https://www.seacoastonline.com/sport...pressor-issues

    Re: UNH Wildcats 2019/2020 Ready to Rock and Roll!!

    UNH experienced a similar incident in November of 2014 before a game against Providence.....

    “The ice surface is precarious and we do have a proposal and it needs to be approved by the trustees, the rebuild,” Scarano said. “This is the whole thing about re-sizing the arena. There’s a whole big agenda out there. This is all part of it. If we get those approvals, which we anticipate happening, even the compressors and all that was mechanical that failed tonight will be replaced, too. We’ll have a brand new infrastructure.

    “The infrastructure has reached its shelf life,” he added. “The mechanical system and the ice surface (have) reached (their) life expectancy and we need to get this done.”
    So, this occurred five years ago, and even now could be fixed within hours, but suddently its a shelf life issue? I think he's right that there is an agenda here.
    Won't some librarian just die so we can fund the next vanity project?

    Even through the blue tinted glasses... embarrassing. Thankful for them letting the Beast of the East play and great to see the band supplementing and dancing to the PA music when it was played. Chatting with three of our fine musicians, they had a few tunes left in the repertoire. It was also nice standing around chatting and catching up with friends. Still, not good.

But, word is that the game will not begin until after 8 pm because of mechanical problems. So, you can hang at Libby's for a while longer, but they will not let us out now that we are in. Gotta profit by selling more beer and food for the next hour?
    They let me out and back in, admittedly I was out only for about 15 minutes.

    Silver lining is that this emphasizes the need for the infrastructure upgrade, makes it very difficult for those in Concord and around the state to argue the need. I wonder if the trustees might approve the refrigeration update, but not the ice width change.

    Ouch. Whatever happened, there was initially standing water behind the student end goal. It froze, but I think the concern was the ice hardness. They were doing temperature checks with a hand held thermometer and sliding pucks across the ice to gauge resistance. It was noticeably warm throughout the arena.

    Thanks for the link. Marty sounds beyond frustrated. The SNHUrena has conflicts 1/18, 1/25, 2/14. Even with no conflicts, a distant plan B.

    Yeah, this was bad. The most up to date (and it wasn't) source was @UNHMHOCKEY. Common sense, team not dressed, had not warmed up and simple math had us talking postponement by 7:15. 15 minutes before the announcement the water bottles were being retrieved from the benches and penalty boxes. Duh.

    Yeah we read it too and told the people around us (most didn't budge but that's ok). Agree....it was obvious when the director of hockey opps was on the ice tossing a puck and it didn't budge that it was hopeless.

    Fair enough. We dish it out, so we must be willing to take it when deserved. Like this.

    Another totally fair shot. Like some folks say in the political world, never let a good crisis go to waste Ö

    Y'know ... in the real world, if the same guy was in charge who had become aware of an operational issue, did virtually nothing but stuck his head in the sand, and hoped it wouldn't crop up again - yet it did, costing the company hundreds of thousands of dollars - that person might be in danger of losing their job.

    But here in academia, we just blame someone else, stick our hand out for more, and overcorrect.

    And everyone gets to keep their job. Heck, they probably get a raise on top of it, too.

    Just sayin ...

    Chuck, Do you know that someone "became aware of an operational issue, did nothing but stuck his head in the sand, etc."? Just sayin . . .

    Yes, the notion that (a) college sports is "academia" and not business, and (b) the virtues of the business world holding everyone fairly accountable seems more like a delusion talking point. Disappointed Chuck couln't work in a PC/snowflake remark for the trifecta. Try harder, Chuck



    We don't know if the age issue is real or just an excuse. The best we can do is be skeptical of explanations coming from the Librarian plunderer.
