According to the media guide Clarkson is 1283-684-111 in 2078 games through 2007-2008. Adding in this years totals of 10-19-7 we end up 1293-703-118. Even though 1293 wins is a lofty number it is not the highest in the NCAA. Boston Universit, Harvard, Boston College, Michigan and Minnesota all have more wins than Clarkson. Clarkson does boast the best winning percentage in the NCAA, Holding a slim edge over Minnesota.

I was pretty excited to hear that Clarkson is going to be coming to the Mariucci Classic next season. A couple of Gopher fans would like to pay back the good deeds done for us up Ithaca, should any pep band members or other Clarkson fans make the trip out to Mpls.
