Uh oh. They're multiplying. ;-)

Speaking of, does anybody know if ChiefAlbanyBear (?) is still around? I loved that guy, and now that we score goals he must be happy.

I'm in contact with him regularly. He's still loving life.

"SCORE MORE GOALS!"

Since first of the year, Cornell is (if I’m counting correctly) averaging 4.2 goals a game (42 goals in 10 games) and giving up 1.4 goals/game (14 in 10) for a +2.8 goal differential. I would bet that’s Cornell’s best goal differential over 10 games in a long, long time.

Upper level math classes were fun in the mid 00s because you could get like a 36/100 and still get an A-.

Pretty sure the professors just cooked up monstrosities to see if the one or two geniuses in the class could still ace them. Said geniuses would score in the 90s, then everyone else waaaaaay below that.

I remember a physics course at my college where in the class of 60 only 10 of us got better than a zero.. made my 16 look pretty impressive as a solid B and I took it and was happy.

All I remember was looking at the questions with no idea what to do and when we got the answers back I was like why would I ever think to use some formula used in electricity to get to the answer on gravity/friction type question when we haven't even covered that in the course yet..

like use ohms law to figure out how fast a car would roll down an incline plane.

This makes sense for advanced mathematics. You aren't going into math as a field unless you are an absolute genius -- like, the kind of genius that makes it difficult to navigate in meat world. So you might as well filter for them and hope you find, say, one a decade. The people there taking it to fulfill an Engineering requirement get the booby prize of making 60x as much in a field with 6000x the likelihood for employment.

But they, and we, will never hear the chimes at midnight.

Those impossible tests never made sense to me until a prof explained that if a student - any student - gets a 100 on a test, then you don’t really know how much they know. You know they know at least as much as was covered on the test, but that’s all you can say for sure. It’s still useful to know on a test with a mean of 40, which genius gets the 85 and which one gets the 90. I was just glad those guys were there to increase the standard deviation!

I had one test in ChemE senior year where I got a 42 and that was the mean. Later in the semester, I ran into the prof (at a party) and asked him what he was trying to prove with that test. He said he wanted everyone to know that just because it was senior year, we weren't going to coast through his course. My response was, "Did you ever think that might turn us off to anything you have to say?" When he said he hadn't, I said he might want to think about it. Then I said, "Oh by the way, I'm going to ace your course." (Narrator: He did.)

I always thought that the exams in ChemE were designed to take 1-1/2 hours...but they only gave you an hour to take it. The trick was to figure out which were the easy questions - answer those first - then get as far on the really hard question as you could until time ran out.

I don’t recall a lot of undergrad, but one thing that stuck with me was Prof Torrance (heat transfer) doing a derivation from the Fourier heat PDE to show that electricity flowing through an anisotropic medium (eg an insulated wire) is exactly the same equation, just that a ton of terms cancel out because the insulation (and surrounding air) are very nearly perfect insulators compared to the lousy thermal insulators that are available. After you chop it all the way down, you get….Ohm’s law.

One of the classic problems in undergrad classical mechanics is the forced, damped harmonic oscillator. To get a linear differential equation you have to add a damping term which is proportional to the velocity, which is not how the "ordinary" friction works. So the usual story is to talk about a "dashpot" which no one has ever heard of at that point. The thing is, you get the same equations for a driven RLC circuit, with and the resistor really does give the desired simple linear damping term.

Yup. Got burned by that, too. Didn’t get around to taking my RLC circuits distribution until senior year, when I was already taking PhD level fluid mechanics courses. Got a 100 on the first prelim, got cocky, said “I know this math” and didn’t study for the second one, forgetting that it was closed book. Hadn’t had closed book exams since sophomore year! Oops….. Bombed that, then aced the final for a solid A-.

Wouldn’t have been so bad, but the prof was my brother’s masters project advisor that year, resulting in this conversation about halfway through the semester:

“So, I understand that your brother is in my circuits class this semester?”

“Well, not too often!”


Accurate, but thanks, bro!

In a somewhat contrary vein, I predict Cashman will have the Green in the top four next year and will enjoy success in Hanover until the dopes at PSU realize Gadowsky is fraud. Cashman will enjoy a chance to make Penn State a significantly BiG hockey program.

RPI finished dead last in the ECAC for the first time since 1967.
RPI was tied with DC that season. It was the previous year that the Engineers were last alone. RPI did not play DC in 66-67, and I don't know if there were tie breakers. There were none needed since who made the playoffs was decided in a smoke-filled room.

If one of the 5,6 or 7 seeds are upset we would play harvard which would be both exciting and scary as they are playing pretty well right now and got the better of us earlier this year.

If there's any team I could see being upset in one game, it would be Harvard. IMO Brown would be the best match-up of all. They haven't looked good against Cornell in either game this season.

And all on Friday, which seems less than ideal for attendance. Harvard ticket office sent out an email begging people to buy tickets for just ten bucks.

If some year, we were their opponent, the price would be $55 and you’d have to put a deposit down for the following year’s season tickets.

Pretty sure we've had them listed as Saturday since at least last Sunday morning (since I did it), so - I dunno.

Watching the RPI-Clarkson game reminds me of something I noticed when I watched Cornell play up there a few weeks ago. There was no real visitor's penalty box in Cheel Arena. They just opened up the door which led to the visiting team's locker room and the visiting player who was penalized had to stand there until he was released from the penalty box. However, it now looks like they have put a bench for the penalized visiting player to sit on. Maybe they had to add one for the playoffs.

RPI looked overwhelmed in the last few minutes. Very fortunate to have the 3rd goal as a buffer because they were stuck in their zone at the end.

Union up 3-0 on Brown in the third, so we either host SLU or, if RPI upsets Clarkson, Harvard.

Apparently a Union student somehow went into the Brown bench and taunted the players for some time until security got to him. I imagine some would say that's not a surprising occurrence at that rink, but it's hilariously fitting that Brown was the team involved given how the game (and really the past XXX seasons) went.
