The count is now up to 10 players from the team, that we last watched, will not be returning. That is devastating.
Gotta assume the Principled Eight are all in the same boat.

You know, if Mike was ever going to consider a clean break...

I know, I know, I'm shutting up.

Maybe he relishes the challenge of building us back to #1 one last time.

It may have been said here somewhere, but are the Cornell players allowed to practice, either with or without supervision, at Lynah rink?

Ursaminor, is RPI allowing practice? Based on the shutdown of RPI's fraternities my guess is no.

Ivy teams are allowed to practice and use training facilities. I think the Cornell teams have been practicing in small groups.

They are not allowing it on Institute property. If the players want to pay themselves for ice time elsewhere, it is apparently OK. After seeing the trouble that schools who are playing are having with playing games, I can't complain about the season being cancelled, but I feel that the players should at least be allowed to practice in small groups. (BU will finally play its first game today if it is not cancelled at the last minute.)

BTW, it's ursusminor, not ursaminor. Thanks to someone here for pointing out to me close to 20 years ago that ursa, like alumna, is a feminine form. Much to my mother's chagrin, I was not required to study Latin for eight years. :-D

Sorry about the name error. That lesson is likely the only Latin I'll ever learn.

RPI looks like a ghost town when we drive through.

It doesn't fundamentally matter where they have gone.

As a reader here forever, the typical response from the exalted members will certainly indicate the boorish stupidity to play anywhere but CU.

However, these kids at CU will all be paying for 4 years of school to play only 3, when they could all receive a quality education elsewhere on scholarship and still play 4.

These are weighty decisions for young men and their families, so lets not chirp about how it may impact your fandom. Its the IVY's fault.

You must not read too carefully on this forum or you'd see that I've not criticized a single player for leaving.

I actually give these guys credit for being able to make what must be a difficult decision to uproot and leave a team I'm sure they are deeply attached to. I'm sure they are making decisions that are in their best interests along with the input of their families and advisors.

Speaking for myself, I'm interested in where they are going and wish them well. And I suspect that most people who posed about the guys who leave will do the same.

Thanks for the pre-judgement. Perhaps NonyaBusiness should follow their own advice and not pontificate on other's motivations...because it's a f*#$@_ing message board and our motivations are NonyaBusiness.

Every single person here knows this is the Ivy League's fault. But thank you for your brave words in defense of a controversial position every one of us takes for granted.

What does the Ivy League know that the Big 10 doesn't? About playing now or fifth year eligibility? If Cornell looked itself in the face honestly it would see it is more Big 10 than Ivy anyway. More Northwestern than Columbia, Michigan than Dartmouth. And that's fine. In hockey and in other ways Cornell has kept its eye on the wrong ball.

Comments like these were the ones I was referencing from exalted members: (You can insert your name as may or may not be appropriate - I didn't)

"Disappointing. My guess is he knows UMD is going to endanger their players but not sure if we are (spoiler: we are).

Welp. Fuck him."


"academically speaking it will be like falling off a cliff".


"The Cornell hockey players attend is almost never the Cornell you and I attended."

Oh.

That's true, though. With very few exceptions athletes in major sports go through joke programs at the best universities. Cornell has joke majors.

How else would donors' kids get through?

There is a whole lot of not fair here, and as a lifelong fan, I feel it too.
