Yeah, no it wasn't. Even if they swept Michigan it wouldn't have been the best weekend in program history (that would be beating #2 Denver 2-1 and then #9 (I think) New Hampshire the next day 6-2 to get to the Frozen Four.

Last year's team, as disappointing as it was, arguably had a bigger win against eventual National runners-up Ferris State in route to winning Vermont's midseason tournament as well (they beat Lake Superior State either the day before or the day after, I forget which).

RIT has a history of beating big time programs - they have an overall winning record against Cornell, beat Minnesota in their 2nd year of D-1, the aforementioned wins over Denver and UNH....obviously beating Michigan was awesome, but frankly losing to PSU takes a ton of luster off of that.
