Well, it looks like you guys are also slacking in your effort of "being good". Only a .5854 RPI and two ranked teams? Psshhh...

Can anyone take down the mighty Upstate??

I say this out of self-interest, but how did RPI end up ranked 4th in the Upstate?  Sheesh...

Would you rather play one of the first 3?  They're all pretty talented, but RPI is by far the youngest of those 4.  I understand it's frustrating trying to match up with the Upstate though  :)

Hamline did. Last season.

Oh, you mean in the Snowball Shootout? Probably not...

But, I think it's only a matter of time before mighty Upstate falls. Minnesota narrowly lost 5-4 last year in the Shootout. Time to step up Michigan!

*cough* last two seasons *cough*

Excellent point, ike. Somehow I forgot you played Brandeis in the final the year before.

Hamline owns Upstate. That means by association Minnesota also owns Upstate.

"by association" lol.  How about can any CONFERENCE take down the Upstate matching up 1-9?  You guys sound like Boise St puffing out their chest when they win a random game against the SEC.

I wouldn't exactly call the National Championship a "random game." Or two for that matter...

But, letting you guys win 5 out of 9 in the Shootout last season...just consider that charity. We didn't want to embarrass Upstate too much in one season.

Minny goin' down tonight.

Bring it Midwest!

I admit our dominance would be more complete with some recent titles to back it up.  But it still sounds hollow to talk about individual games when the Upstate has won all 3 challenges since the reboot.  I didn't ask "can anybody beat Ren Poly?"  We've established that one.

The Upstate overall looks MUCH stronger to me this season than last.
