It's a Long Way to the Top

This weekend isn't really make or break - it could well be more of a "break," however, if either team has a rough outing.

For the women, it's four points or bust, but this isn't your usual roll over and play dead Union team. They've been stealing points here and there, however, and if RPI doesn't bring their A-game, they could suffer their first loss to the Dutchwomen since 2004, when Union was a Division I team and RPI was still in Division III. A sweep, and they may just take the driver's seat for 8th place.

For the men, it's an opportunity to prove that last week's sweep was no fluke. Tonight, they take on St. Lawrence, in a game they must win if they are going to pull themselves out of the basement. With a victory, they can move into a tie for 11th place with the Saints. With a loss, they're four points clear of the field again. Then tomorrow, it's Clarkson, a team that has done well without exactly knocking anyone's socks off. If Bryce Merriam can stay hot through this weekend, the long road to redemption could begin in earnest.

We may have used this one in the past... matter of fact I think we kicked off last year's season with it. Doesn't matter, it still rocks and it's apt. The first rule of pumpup is that you can never go wrong with AC/DC anyway.
