Coach Gwozdecky's Hockey Camp starts today.

The good news is that David Makowski is listed as a councilor. I guess we can take that as a sign that he is recovering from his headaches that ended his season.

Good press for Denver Outlaws, Mark Matthews and lacrosse as a whole.

Just looked at The Wild blog the beat writer is expecting Zucker to be fighting for a postion on the team. What an idiot.

Matthews has missed 2 games because coach thought he was not giving it his all. Too bad, for that may cost him rookie of the year. DU could have really used that publicity .

Great Goal!


Since there's not a message board on this site, what happens to the "Big 10" hockey conference if Penn State gets the NCAA "Death Penalty?"

IF [big "if" IMO] Penn State got the "Death Penalty" or voluntarily gave themselves the "Death Penalty" it would most likely just be football.

If Penn State took a year off or more in all sports, the Big10 Hockey Conference would play with five teams.

Penn State football is a $100 million dollar a year enterprise. They aren't just going to fold up the tent.

My guess is that its far more likely that Penn State will give themselves some sanctions than the NCAA imposing penalties. Doubtful the PSU hockey program will be affected.

I'd like to say nothing because it's mostly from the football side, but this is a very different case. The NCAA will be penalizing the University as a whole most likely and not just the one sports program. It's not really a sports-related issue though, IMO.

That being said, hopefully the NCAA leaves the athletic programs alone in the upcoming months. I even think they should leave the football program alone and I despise them. Those student-athletes and the fans of the programs aren't guilty of this disgusting cover up and do not deserve to pay the price for that.

If the NCAA tries to go outside their rules and scope they'll get dragged into court.

Crimes were committed and its best to let the legal process play itself out. Will be interesting to see if any of the Penn State administrators, including the AD, go to jail.

Hmmm good point. They are just an Athletic Association.
