Unprecedented

This just in: The UNH Men's Hockey Team has filed with the NCAA to change their name to the University of New Hampshire Ildcats. That's right. After the dismal stretch of the last nine games, the final four of which they have not taken a single point from, they have decided to drop the 'W' from the school mascot name.

I jest, of course, but let me put this clearly unvarnished before you.

No University of New Hampshire Men's Hockey Team has lost four games in a row in at least the last decade.

Let me repeat.

No University of New Hampshire Men's Hockey Team has lost four games in a row in at least the last decade.

While there are legitimate factors that have certainly contributed to these losses - facing good teams and Foster's injury - this result is simply unprecedented in this span as is the trial of the last nine games passing with just one victory where our Ildcats have gone 1-5-3

Tonight, two teams that are each winless in their last six games will meet in Durham, Providence 0-5-1 vs. UNH 0-4-2. With their twin four game losing streaks on the line who will renounce defeat and embrace victory? Or will they confound all and skate to draw?

I have only this to say: the time is now. If we're willing to work hard. Sacrifice. And, with a little luck, we'll put the 'W' back in Wildcats.

Get out there and do it!

Go 'Cats!

Idlecats, LOL, at least your team can win a hockey game.

I was just having a little fun - I really haven't been down on them, merely making an observation, injecting a little humor.

Although, I must say that the third period last night is the worst I've seen from them.

What is going on over there in Grand Forks?
