Re: Coach Search 2022

No one involved has anything to gain by being 100% honest with anyone right now. Until there is dried ink, guiding the rumors about your end of the story only put you in a better negotiating place. I have, on numerous occasions, entertained offers and then decided they didn't fit my goals. I took th...

Re: Coach Search 2022

My dudes... it's a process. There are little to no facts of what is going on or what has gone on. It's possible RB had a verbal from a coach the day he let McCall go, also possible 28 coaches have said no. Just let the process finish before you set the dumpster on fire in protest.

Re: Makar in NHL

Also worth noting, one of the D-men on the goal was Justin Braun... another UMie.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Not to try an be the voice of reason here but let me ask: MM hasn't had the success that Carvel has had. But to some extent, like Makar, wasn't Mitchell somewhat understood to be a short term player here? I can't fault MM for Pierre leaving, much like I can't hold Carvel for players who have spent t...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

I hear there is a promising young coach down at Winthrop, maybe we can snatch him up. :lol:
What is that Lappas guy up to these days? Maybe he would bring in an assistant who has a hockey star.

Or maybe McCall and Bell switch jobs, can't be less successful.

Just stirring up here, sorry. :lol:

Re: Infractions 2014-2017

Meanwhile big name programs get caught buying hookers and blow for the players, and players not attending classes and the NCAA is all "Well, I mean the evidence is you know a little murky... Let's fine them $82 and take away their next exhibition game win."

Could someone just start a post here that starts with "Allegedly.... <Paste rumor here>" and we can stop all the PMs. Cause I wanna know too and I am too proud to ask.

Re: 2019-20 Season

One doesn't get points for non-conference games. So 5 points would be exceptional with only 4 on the table.

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

I agree, the right keeps heading right-ward, the left keeps heading left-ward, menawhile the vast majority of us are in the middle of those two hoping eventually, someone will run from the middle-ish area of the spectrum. The trouble is, anytime someone from the middle runs, no one supports them.

Re: 2019-20 Season

In the recent past, people wouldn't even publish the pairwise this early. Hockey has a decent amount of parity, a small amount of teams. One weird result can affect the pairwise throughout the entire rank. It need more data to start making sense of anything. This is why you see 12 point swings from ...

Re: The secular decline of football in high school

I am ambivalent. I started football at 8. I earned scholarship offers to college 1A-III, I never played. I have many of the 'signs' of CTE. I have suffered 3 concussions. Of my concussions, one was on the football field, two were being an idiot, football was the most minor one of them. Given the opt...

Re: Game 8 - UMass at UNH Sunday 1 pm

I don't think there was any chance of moving to #1, Denver's loss was to UMD, a VERY strong team. Hockey polls are not a volatile as other polls. UMass likely would have moved to 2, Denver at 1. As is, I expect Umass 4 or 5. I see: 1.Denver 2. Notre Dame 3. Cornell (I don't like this still) 4. Minn ...

Re: new goal song

I ask this honestly, what is the obsession with shouting obscenities in public that makes this SOOOOOOO important? Let's call a spade a spade The song was dumped for 2 reasons: (I personally don't believe it was one and not the other) 1. Gary Glitter is a bad look in this day. 2. The chant at the en...
