You guys played with kids, who wanted to attend Marquette. You weren't recruited to come play D3 club hockey at the age of 23-30. I know the RMU P team will be happy that at their age they finally won a championship. Just think Marquette Players, when you reach the age of the RMU players. You will have graduated college and probably on your way to a successful career.

To the above post, do you feel tough talking trash on a ACHA D3 Forum? Dont be sad that your team lost to a better team, it was a well played game by both teams, and you are talking trash for no reason what so ever.... get over yourself, and better luck next year.... btw your mad about the age difference? Have you ever took the time to look at the age of RMU? they have 2 guys only that are older than 24... has it occured to you that some kids played jr's till they maxed out in age then went to school? Marquette should be ashamed to lose to a bunch of older guys anyways, young legs vs old legs, and old legs win, good job marquette

5:11 Poster...

Need some tissue? Are you mad because your team is a D2 team that couldn't win a D3 league and despite winning most of their games couldn't get ranked?


That was just to that poster. Marquette should be proud. They had a great season and should not hang their heads. There are a lot of college hockey teams that have players that maxed out in juniors. It happens all the time but not all teams that have that win. Just look at RMU last year.

the tournament was played well by all the teams. RMU does have a little advantage, because their academic requirments are easier than most schools. They do recruit all over and can give them the luxury to give free rides, which most schools can't

I think you should explain to the guy up there what juniors is first and that you can play it until your 21. I don't think some fans or parents realize that there is hockey for kids outside of high school hockey..... Good job to RMU Peoria. You have not been given much respect this year for your wins and many of us have been waiting for you to lose. Represent MACHA well in regionals. You guys deserve it. Even if you are old.....

Just to clear one thing up, RMU cant give free rides.... each player receives a small amount of money towards tuition, every player gets the same amount, its some leadership grant that it is called, my buddy went there last year and explained it to me, but again, no free rides are given out by RMU

I must have missed that thing about the "free ride". Our son plays on RMU Peoria and he is paying the full price minus a little for academic/leadership awards, so please stop the free ride idea. Congrats to both Teams for a well played game.

Good for your son, there are some freebies.

1. Free money (call it whatever kind of grant you want but if someone just goes to school at RMU without playing a sport and doesn't get it, then it is a scholarship for playing hockey).

2. Free hockey. They don't have to pay to play.

That alone gets people to choose going there over another club program. If you just want a basic degree and it is go there or somewhere else but it is cheaper there due to 1 and 2 then you would be stupid to not do it.

RMU hockey players actually get the same leadership grant that members of the newspaper staff, drama club, show choir, etc, etc. All schools have these type of grant programs in place. It is for representing the school in a positive way. The hockey players are not the only ones that receive this grant. Check with your financial aid person, you may be missing out on some "free" money.

Yes but if they are getting it just being on the hockey team then it might be considered a scholarship. This could be debated for hours and hours.

No, because smart people know it is a hockey scholarship.

RMU Peoria

I agree congrats to RMU Peoria. They are definately a good team. And have great coaching. Marquette played well, especially their goalie who kept them in it late. It was one of the best hockey games I've seen at any level in a couple of years.

It's obvious that players from RMU are getting something more than a few bucks as a grant to play. Some of their players are 28-29 years old and have been around Peoria for years. One parent told me that they pay less for their kid to attend RMU than they did the two year community college since their son receives "leadership grants" for playing hockey.

Look at the roster. Do you really believe kids are coming from CA or Canada to Peoria to get a degree at RMU Peoria. But I don't blame them. If someone told me I could play hockey for free, equipment and costs paid for, and go to school for almost nothing and at the end of a couple of years (they are on an accelerated program schedule) get a degree in whatever why wouldn't I take it.

RMU Peoria, for some reason, has decided having the top team in club hockey is worth the money they give to kids. It's their money. It creates an unlevel playing field but it is what it is. And in the end what matters is what you do after club hockey. A RMU degree is fine for those that want it and others who picked their school for reasons other than hockey, and are playing hockey for the fun of competition, will be glad they did when the time for real life rolls around.

No one has a clue what they're talking about. Who else wants to make things up that sound like it could be possible and also can be used as an excuse?

RMU has a pretty good amount of money to use...but so does Mckendree and it didnt make them an "unstoppable" team like Peoria. At the end on the day its just 2 teams playing hockey, money does not help you skate faster or shoot harder. Im sure every team would like to have a budget like that, but it wont instantly make them a better hockey team.

Robert morris probably doubled their talent from last years team to this years, and they did that purely based on money. If it wasn't money, why wouldn't all those kids be going down the road to Bradley after they won the league championship last year and beat rmu 2 or 3 games in a row? If it wasn't solely based on dollars I can guarantee they wouldn't have kids coming from Canada or New York or California, to come to Peoria Illinois. RMU is presenting Ex junior players who couldn't get into other schools a great opportunity to play the sport and get a degree for nearly nothing. It's unfair, but until the league stops it then nobody can blame them. I mean come on, I wish I could get additional "grants" for playing golf and drinking beer with my friends in the summer like the rmu hockey players can. All the complaining is a little ridiculous, who really cares. At the end of the day this is pretty much the lowest level college hockey you can play.

It is so hard to resist the temptation to rip on MCK and RMU on this one.

It's been a while since MCK has given out scholarships, the last ones they gave out were to the fat kids Roberts and Dreyer
