Nebraska-Omaha rated #1, our guy Craig Nigrelli is close to the program. They made the Frozen Four last year and are up and coming this year. Very interested to see how Snuggerud does, he can fly and has been QB’ing the UN-O power play. If he has a good year looks like he may be a guy the Hawks target to sign early.
Hey Hof, I was just on campus on Monday. Interestingly, Snuggerud did not play on Saturday night. I asked around why he was scratched. Was told that the coaching staff was trying to light a bit of a fire under him and also get other guys into the lineup early in the year. Hmmm.
I don’t think it is anything to be concerned about. They play Western Michigan this weekend. I will be interested to see if plays both games.
