  • Megan Duffy to Marquette

    I mean that is pretty bullshit. She was here for two (or three?) years, and signed an extension. No commitment to Miami at all.
    It kind of reminds me of the Titanic (too soon?).  Either get on a row boat to safety or go down with the sinking ship.

    Megan Duffy just proved that she isn't an idiot like the rest of us.

    I heard we got a 3 star from Florida who specializes in calling timeouts against UC with one minute remaining.

  • 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament

    I always thought Purdue players were mentally tough, team first guys.

    I guess I was wrong, since I am an idiot

    I'm so happy for Kenneth Lowe and Ryan Smith.  Its too bad that we dont look anything like Purdue does on either end of the floor.

    But what do I know... im just an idiot

  • Cleveland.com series on public college sports expenditures

    There is a NCAA minimum number of sports for men and women for FBS teams that we are currently at, I believe, so we couldn't drop teams without adding teams.
    I know this comment won't be popular but the disparity between what we pay our mens and womens BB coaches, and what we are paying our hockey coach, the numbers in this story, is ridiculous. Hockey shouldn't be consuming this much of our budget. 
    I disagree with your premise in general, but I wonder what the total numbers look like for the coaching staffs. Hockey has two assistants, a DOHO and a strength coach. Basketball has 3 assistants, DOBO and an assistant to the Head coach. Also a strength coach too presumably but possibly split between multiple teams.

    Hockey program should be cut.  Miami athletics won't move forward until it does.  But what do I know?  I'm just an idiot.
    I disagree wholeheartedly with this. It's difficult in the random world of college sports to have all 3 sports at a peak at the same time but it's possible for all 3 to succeed. This year BGSU had a bad football season but their basketball team was third in the MAC and their hockey team was third in a top heavy WCHA and has a decent shot at the tournament. A even better example is 2016 WMU who of course went 13-1 in FB, went to the tournament in hockey and had a decent 11-7 conference record in MBB. Or 14-15 BGSU who went 8-6, winning their division and a bowl game and went 21-12 (11-7) in MBB and 23-11-5 (17-8-3) in hockey.
    I guess all we are looking for is mediocrity in any one of the 3 sports...  

    I bet WMU/BG don't spend nearly as much on hockey as we do.  But what do I know?  i am what Chuck Martin says i am

  • First Time Poster, Long Time Idiot

    I'm an idiot!  Chuck Martin told me so!

    I cannot believe David Sayler doesn't have the stones to fire this clown.  I will not be buying season tickets as long as that asshole is coaching Miami.
