Shooting for .500
I am assuming this is the last week for the pick em contest? Kudos to outoftownie who set this up. Been a nice little extra lax activity to enjoy this year.
This week’s picks have a common element! Bonus prize if you can guess what it is.
All 3 head coaches played HS ball in Section III.
So much for our Quinnipiac pick, should have gone with Cornell
Forgot about putting in last week. 20-16 to date. Making picks with hopes to lose each.
Rutgers and Penn losing would be enormous. Ditto for Nova.
Maryland and RU tied at 3 after 1. Shockey was 2-5 at the X so Maryland went to Henningsen who is 1-2. Bizarre that Maryland struggles at the X versus Rutty with Rutgers struggling so badly at the X down the stretch.
5-5 Maryland and Rutty with 6:28 left. Maryland starting to dominate at the X as RU has 4 faceoff violations the most recent resulting in a goal for Maryland. Give RU credit for having the game tied, Maryland should be up based on the faceoffs.
7-5 Maryland at half. RU's goalie is playing pretty well with 8 saves. Maryland could easily be up 4 or 5.
Denver up 4-1 over Marquette 2nd quarter
9-7 Maryland end of 3. Maryland was up 9-6 with the ball but couldn't stretch the lead out. RU had a 2 min man up right at the end of the quarter and for some reason took a shot with like 6 seconds left and Maryland made the save so it will be Maryland ball to start the 4th up 2.
It's even worse - I was watching and he took the shot with between 3 and 4 seconds left. Stupid. Just plain stupid.
Just plain Rutgers.
Maryland killed off the penalty but Edelman made another great save for RU.
Canisius and Detroit both win.
Bobby Mo coming in hot.
Surprised Bryant lost that game, there usually money under Pressler in those conf games especially the opening game. ROMO could give a high seed a lot of trouble.
Maryland has now gone up 3 twice and RU has answered almost immediately, not a great feeling about this one
MD 3 goal lead with 3 1/2 to go. Feeling a little more confident.
You wonder if its time for Pressler to head out to Greener Pastures or get in a young OC that Bryant offense has been abysmal the last few years, just awful.
That 2 min non releasable where Rutgers didn't score and then shot right before the quarter to give Maryland the ball cost them the game if they lose. That cannot happen. Mullins didn't play for RU either which hurt them.
