Mercifully the season is over with tonight's loss to UA_. It was as tough season for a fan to go through as we've ever had. And I say that having gone through some pretty awful seasons. I thought this weekend was a pretty good example of what we've seen all year from the Seawolves. We saw some guys giving it their all and some guys not giving their all. We saw individual players try to do too much themselves. We saw guys take selfish and dumb penalties.
There was persistence and character displayed by our guys at times. Just as there was through the whole season. We saw some nice skills and some well executed plays. But none of the positives were anywhere near enough to have any consistent success.
There's more than a few reasons for this awful year. I've touched on some of them here but it serves no purpose at this point to rehash all that. It'll be a year from now before we see how many of the causes can be rectified.
In case you didn't notice, I gave up on the season more than a couple of weeks ago. Blame my high expectations coming into the season for the crash in my fandom.
I'll have a comprehensive recruit update forthwith. Time to look forward to next year and start with all the guessing and speculation and hoping.
All the best to the Seniors in their hockey and non-hockey futures. There can be nothing but respect toward 4 year student-athletes. It takes loads of character and dedication and organization to make that happen. Congratulations to those guys and I hope they always fondly look back on the last 4 years.
