After doing a little research this morning, I have to back off and finally give RPI hockey coach Opie Appert his due. He's finally done it. He's made RPI THE WORST TEAM IN AMERICA.
Check out these stats:
RPI...1-9-3 last 13, outscored 24-4 in last five.
Merrimack...2-10-1 last 13, outscored 18-6 last five
AIC (yes, the one in Springfield. I didn't even know they were Division I)...3-10 last 13, have outscored opponents 17-15 in last five.
Bowling Green...2-11 last 13, outscored 17-10 in last five.
Wayne State (I didn't know The Duke had a college named after him!)...3-10 last 13, outscored 20-18 last five.
Opie better click those red heels together and head back to Denver. Hey, Ope, this is what happens when your senior student/athletes have things on their minds other than hockey, which can happen at these damn, fancified Eastern schools.
THEY RAN FRIDGE OUT OF TOWN FOR THIS? In the immortal words of Jerry Lee Lewis, GREAT BALLS OF FIRE.
Hell, if RPI is going to be this bad, they might as well eliminate the scholarships and put the money into research grants or something.
