    RPI 2009 - 2010 -- RIP Nathan Marsters

    Last year we began the new season thread https://board.uscho.com/showthread.ph...&highlight=RPI in mid-August, so why not start it now?




    Today is 5 August 2009. There are 59 days until RPI's next game.


    This is based upon 3 October for the start of next season.

    RB from the last thread-"They built three dorms south of Nason and Warren for the 69-70 year. So it wasn't there when you were there"

    Now Nason and Warren I remember

    I am not going to do former players. I found it not worth the effort. Feel free if you want to.

    Also, there is a ground swell of opinion to do Off-Season Part II, I'll delete this thread.

    BTW, I did forget back at 86 days left to honor Allison Wright.

    Yep, there's Nugent and Davison on either side with Sharp in the middle. Off of that side street near the fire house and the old School 14 (Academy Hall) is how to get in there. All three, though on the hill, are upperclass dorms.

    Also, great to see Bryan's article on INCH. Great find, PuckSwami!

    Well, given the amount of vandalism because of how new it is, maybe Hotel Barton counts as that. :P

    Indeed. Maybe next he'll get some recognition on a real college hockey site!

    From the off-season thread:

    Moving hockey to accommodate primetime basketball? I bet they don't even get 1000 people for that tournament, and most of them probably will not be of RPI allegiance.

    Dr. Jackson, I understand your high hopes, but I just don't think you'll get the good attendance for basketball, especially if you can't fill the Armory if the admission is free. Granted I've never actually been to one of those games mostly because I don't like watching the sport, but I don't know how many around the area do either.
    Yes, but imagine how few people they'd get if they had to accommodate both games going on at the same time? Parking/traffic is bad enough as it is to get to the HFH for ice hockey games. I can't imagine how tough it would be to accommodate for parking for a hockey game at HFH and a basketball game at ECAV at the same time.

    It's a matter of public relations. I'm sure there are those (however few) people who care more about hoops than about hockey, and would get quite upset if they had to fight HFH hockey traffic to get to the basketball game. Likewise, they don't want to upset the die-hard hockey fans by having basketball fans taking up valuable parking spots around ECAV/HFH.

    You make a very good point on having two events at different times. However, I would think they'd want to have the lesser-attended event first, since it's easier to get out while people are trying to get in, as opposed to the other way around. Usually people will stagger into an event, but will all leave at the same time. If you have 3,000-4,000 people trying to get out of that area while at the same time trying to get 999 staggering in for another event, you'll see some serious problems with not only traffic, but parking, and even people trying to get into the building.

    Either that, or their thought is, "Meh, traffic is awful here after the hockey game, why don't I see what's going on in the other building...", but I don't know how many will do that, and how many will try to get a good seat at Brown's, H&W, or O'Leary's. :P

    I can almost guarantee that we'll hear announcements several times during that game.... "After the game, why not head up to the new basketball arena at ECAV and check out the RPI men's basketball team as they take on..." etc.

    You're dead on, JCrawford, probably about as much as they said "Citizen's Bank: Not Your Typical Bank" at the first Governor's Cup.
