    Any Miami of Ohio folks around here?

    If so, your college has made the finals of the NCAA college hockey tournament. As I type this, Boston University is up 2-0 on Vermont after the 1st period.

    If that holds it sets up a real nice David vs. Goliath story for the final.

    Not a huge Hockey fan though my gf is taking me to a Redwing game in Detroit tomorrow, but I'm excited for MU in the Championship. I always enjoyed going to the games when I was an Undergrad.

    Watching both games tonight.

    I may have spoken too soon. UVM has come back with three goals in the 2nd to take the lead. It could be David vs. David in a slingshot war.

    I'm a Miami grad ('04) - very proud of them and hope them have one more win in them.

    It's an excited campus... too bad no one will be here this weekend because of Easter...

    Off topic, but does it frustrate anybody else that the school is always referred to as "Miami of Ohio." Like keeping 'Miami University' and 'University of Miami' straight is too difficult of a task? Maybe we can defeat Boston of Massachusetts on Saturday ... [/rant]

    David vs. Goliath is back on.

    BU vs. MU

    I got a kick out of that - it's probably not a good omen for my Redhawks that I am close to getting a Boston Terrier (not to mention it seems like BU knocks us out of the hockey tournament every year).

    Just tell people that Miami University should be referred to as "Miami" and "The U" should be "Miami (Fl.)" since we were founded first.

    MU grad here ('98).

    Miami U. was a university before Florida was a state. Pretty amazing, but it's true.

    Go Redskinhawks!

    This doesn't come easy for someone with a Bachelor's from Marshall and a Master's from Xavier, but I'll say it anyway: Go Redhawks!
