  • Unrelated to Miami, for a country so good in hockey, it is astonishing how bad the CIS attendance is in Canada. I don't know a lot about the country, but I thought hockey was their no 1 sport It's more that their version of college sports is very di…
  • "Worse players"? Based on what? Based on the fact you automatically assumed he would start over the current QBs
  • You guys are a bunch of spoiled brats. What more do you guys really want?!? Miami finished 1st in the MAC in esports and quidditch, and finished in the top 10 in synchronized marbles. What more can you really ask for??? I’m sympathetic to the …
  • So many bowls and so little chance to fill them. The most recent season I can find where the MAC didn't have at least 6 teams at .500 or better is 2009.
  • These? https://campusstore.miamioh.edu/shop_product_detail.asp?catalog_id=1496&catalog_name=QWRpZGFzIFNob3A&pf_id=1185090&product_name=MjAxOSBBZGlkYXMgT24gVGhlIEZpZWxkIEJhc2ViYWxsIENhcA&type=1&target=shop_product_list.asp

  • Using alumni giving as a way to determine the quality of a school seems so meaningless. Even if it can accurately measure "student satisfaction and post-graduate engagement" it would measure how satisfied alumni from decades are, not just recent gra…
  • There are physical copies on campus in the library apparently: http://archivesspace.lib.miamioh.edu/repositories/2/archival_objects/11267 I doubt that they've been digitized and uploaded anywhere.
  • Fun thread I saw on Twitter: if you could kick anyone out of the MAC, who would you pick? Hands down Buffalo. They are getting way too good in everything Also works from a geographical/cultural perspective.
  • The two home series we have during the January term are North Dakota and Denver, both of whom are off on Feb 7-8 which is our new bye week. Seems like moving one of these series to when students are in town would be a good idea. 5 home games follo…
  • Few things I'm not 100% sure of from the article: 1. What are the repercussions of falling under the 15,000/game average?2. The article states "each student paid an average of $1,044.87" which I assume is out of the ICA fee, in the 2019 fiscal year.…
  • Should our spring teams continue to perform well and stay at or near the top of the standings this could well be the very first year in school history that Miami wins BOTH the Jacoby and the Reese awards. And if we don't find ourselves #1 and #1, we…
  • I thought he was the Holy Cross transfer, not Penn State...or is that someone else? You're thinking of Matt Barry. He enrolled at the beginning of the spring semester.
  • Brett Murray allegedly no longer coming: https://twitter.com/MikeMcMahonCHN/status/1121412549814169602
  • Full Schedule released: https://miamiredhawks.com/news/2019/4/17/2019-20-hockey-schedule-revealed.aspx
  • Mannino and Beal both out according to CHN twitter

  • I've got to be honest, I haven't even heard of this league. I wikipedia'd it, and there is no page for it. Don't know what channel it was on, never saw any advertisements for it, and now it has apparently folded. Without this thread, I never would h…
  • Where's this coming from? I don't see a post on miamiredhawks or on Twitter. BG is a good opening series.
  • Of 299 teams we have the 290th SOS by RPI (http://warrennolan.com/baseball/2019/rpi-live) 13 of our wins are against EMU, YSU, Oakland and St. Bonaventure who are a combined 18-76-1, which includes a 3 game series between YSU and Oakland. The three …
  • Not to be the bad guy (nor belittle the importance of equal opportunities), but I should point this out since it hasn't been mentioned yet.   Because of Title IX, there has to be an equal spending on male and female sports.  (no matter how much of …

  • While it is true that Goggin generates more non-athletics revenue than other Miami facilities, it still requires about a $2.2 million allocation from student general fees to support its operations.  You could argue that's a fair allocation for its u…

  • Didn't expect that. Hope there is a new coach lined up already
  • OSU, no question.
    in UC or OSU? Comment by MooreHawk March 17
  • I am old so was around when being just in the top half of Division 1 would be considered weak for a season let alone a yearly end result.=> then you were also old enough to remember when there were half as many power Conference teams as there are…
  • There is a NCAA minimum number of sports for men and women for FBS teams that we are currently at, I believe, so we couldn't drop teams without adding teams. I know this comment won't be popular but the disparity between what we pay our mens and wo…
  • Hmm, I wonder what the computers have to say about OU. They just fired their coach who was 40-50 in MAC play and 81-77 overall. So per Sagarin and Massey below, from last year to this year, the computers say OU improved, and they fired their coach. …
  • The past 7 wins have come against Oakland and YSU who are both 0-13 on the season. NKU is just 1-11 and St. Bonaventure is 1-6. That said you can only beat the teams on the schedule and it isn't like we're trying to put together an at-large resume.
  • For understandable reasons, our coaching staff is posting on Twitter about celebrating Purdue’s B10 title. But damned if they don’t seem more excited about Purdue than any game we won this season. I don't see a big deal here. I think it should be…
