Getting it straight from the coach’s mouth Podcasts, Sports

On this week’s Studio 86 podcast, RIT Tigers men’s hockey head coach Wayne Wilson gives his assessment of the season, pointing to upset victories over Cornell and Minnesota as highlights so far.

Coach Wilson told Joe Venniro, RIT assistant sports information director, and me that the team’s goal is a berth in the NCAA tournament regionals next month. The coach also talks about the strong fan support for the Tigers and about Super Bowl-winning New York Giants head coach—and former RIT football head coach—Tom Coughlin. It’s all on this week’s Studio 86 podcast.

This weekend, the first-place Tigers host Canisius College at 7:05 p.m. Saturday at Ritter Arena before traveling to the Queen City for the second half of a home-and-home series against the Griffs at 4:05 p.m. Sunday at Buffalo State Sports Arena.

Who’s that voice?kb_earl_web.jpg
Speaking of Studio 86, when I introduced our newest podcast to readers of The Tiger Beat Blog last fall, I thanked my good friend K.B. Cooper for lending her great voice to the Studio 86 open and close. If her voice sounds familiar to you, you might’ve heard her through the years on Warm 101.3, WBEE or WRCI. (Her and my professional paths crossed at Warm and The Bee.)

Yesterday, on behalf of University News, I formally thanked her for voicing the Studio 86 parts by presenting her with an RIT sweatshirt. Here she is, with her husband, Earl (who also has a great radio voice, by the way), at Starbucks in Pittsford after donning her new RIT apparel for the first time. Looking good!

Have a great weekend, and go Tigers!
