History Defines Seawolf Futility On This Weekend

Since the 2002-2003 season, the Seawolves are 4-17-5 on the weekend before leaving for the holiday break. In 03-04, we swept Colorado College; then in 2011-2012 we split with Colorado College; then in 2013-2014 we split with LSSU. In 8 of those seasons we got swept by the opponent.

UAF has 14 wins on their last weekend before the holiday break since 2002-2003. 

Seems to me every year on this last weekend before the holidays that I'm always thinking that our boys are looking past the game to their break and the data above sure seems to be evidence of that. I can find nothing else (imaginary or concrete) to explain this futility.

At least this weekend, 2 of our 3 local players got goals. I guess they weren't really looking past the games to their break? Someone might keep track of TOI (time on ice) and I'd sure like to see those numbers from this weekend. I saw Connor Wright on the ice once in the third period tonight. Maybe Coach Thomas forgot who scored the only goal?

I don't know this 100% but, I'm fairly certain that neither Alex Jackstadt or Connor Wright are on scholarship. That says something to me about the players who are on scholarship and makes me question Coach Thomas' in-game tactics.

Last night, the Seawolves were flummoxed in the 3rd period by a neutral one trap. It wasn't a fancy trap with some sort of gimmick ... just a straight up trap for which the Seawolves had no answer. Tonight, we just got mostly outworked. When we did have the proper effort, the execution was horrible. If bad passes were a metric the Seawolves set a world record for most bad passes in one period over the last 20 minutes tonight.

I can't find much good to say about this tie. Yay, we got a point?

Let's hope all the guys use the break to look into the mirror and question themselves. Let's hope that injuries heal. And let's hope the coaching staff finds something to improve consistency.

Between now and the beginning of the 2nd half, don't expect to find much here. I will probably write a couple of times but at minimum I'll have some sort of post examining each individual player's performance (my least favorite type of post ... but something that I think is very necessary at this point).

UAA must win both games in Fairbanks to win the Gov Cup? Let's get fans to go up and support the team like they do. It's not fun when they can out cheer us at home. If the boys and girls scouts did not show up to the game we would not have had any cheering.

Alaska Airlines has their name on the most important athletic asset at UAA. Perhaps they could put together a 199 dollar round trip package which includes 1 night in a hotel.

I was very surprised by how FEW UA_ fans did show up this year, and they were very quiet.

The Carleson is very empty, like the Sully, maybe we could get a block of seats together?

This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me.

After 9 years in marriage with my hubby with 3 kids, my husband started going out with other ladies and showed me cold love, on several occasions he threatened to divorce me if I dare question him about his affair with other ladies, I was totally devastated and confused until an old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet called DR. Okojie who help people with their relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contacted him, he helped me cast a love spell on my husband and within 24hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with ladies and he is with me for good and for real. Contact this great spell caster for your relationship or marriage problem and all kinds of problem you find difficult to resolve and he will put a lasting solution to it.
