  • On the 19th day of the month in '19, Yzerman returns to the Wings as GM.  Holland moves upstairs.  I think this would indicate that Yzerman was approving all deals all year long, including the Blashilll extension. Glad that the architect of the b…
  • A lot of Miami's were going to be delayed a year. Most hockey players don't jump to college at 18, but elite prospects still lists them with their year.
  • Was hoping for a return trip to Alabama-Huntsville.   Interesting how there is an exhibition game about midway through the first part of the season along with where the return game at BG and the exhibition against Guelph before starting the 2nd part…
  • I probably would've gotten my degree from one of the four other universities I have credits from, most likely University of Dayton. While I was there I was living on Kiefaber when UD made the elite 8. I also was a student at Wright State when they b…
  • Basketball did the same thing.
  • Bergeron's press conference so far has been great. He has people ready to run through a wall. Him talking about Rico was tough.
  • Blasi was here 20 years and made less than Owens. Surprising I wouldn't say surprising. Michigan's head hockey coach makes $400k and is one of the highest paid in all of college hockey. Rico was right up near the top. Jerry York has 5 titles and is…
  • They took game two 3-2. They're now 24-5 (7-1) on the season. They've won 6 in a row and 21 of the last 23. Miami actually has a decent shot at winning 40 games this season, which would be the first time doing that since 2005. Completely unrelated…
  • BG's forum saying both assistants are staying and Miami's website showing Bergeron, Mannino, and Beal all as coaches. Would be interesting if Bergeron is keeping both and taking none.
  • https://www.collegehockeynews.com/news/2019/04/04_Miami-to-Hire-Bowling-Green.php College Hockey News also reporting Bergeron to Miami. They expect Schutte to return with him - 'along with staff member Jimmy Spratt'... Spratt is a former BG goalie…
  • *to get an evaluation. I like that the NBA does this now. It allows athletes to figure out where their game is weak and strengthen it up during college. It prevents what we see in football where guys leave early, don't get drafted, and have no way …

  • Guess now time to speculate on the assistants I was about to say... I think this is way more important when it comes to recruiting. The HC typically spends so much time head down and doing admin work that recruiting is handled a lot more by assista…
  • I don't see how replacing Blasi with one of his former assistants who has had only a small fraction of Blasi's success is somehow a major improvement for the program. Everyone seems to be blinded by "Miami Man" syndrome. Bergeron is a fine coach, bu…
  • Seems like a lot of turbulence; are other conferences in the same boat? College basketball has had transfer issues for a few years now. 2 per team is about what I would expect, so the MAC is right below that. Right now there are 435 D1 transfers and…
  • CUSA doesn't payout what the MAC does anymore. They took a nosedive. The AAC is really the only other midmajor conference that is worth jumping to financially now. The MWC pays well but their foot print isn't exactly close to the Midwest.
  • I believe about 10 years ago Geno Ford left Kent State for Bradley. I think he assuned Bradley would pay his Kent State buy out. They didnt. Geno didnt either. I believe Kent then sued Geno but I am not sure how it ended up Boy did his agent screw…
  • I certainly don't blame him for not turning down that much money, but why are you signing an extension if you know you're going to be fielding offers? The extension was mutually beneficial to Buffalo. They got a 750k buyout, which is multiples of w…
  • Gigantic one tomorrow night. This season has been frustrating but no one deserves some success more than Foligno who has just had a terrible season off the ice. In my opinion, this game against Montreal is the biggest game of the season.  If they b…

  • Bergeron will be named Miami's next Coach. Here's that article: Click here or your liver will have a bad American Airlines experience. The one that was posted on page two
  • A lot of kids borrow that money.  And having over $5000 in extra student loans over four years to support an athletic department that essentially nobody cares enough to watch isn't sustainable.   Curious as to what is your suggestion then? Spend l…
  • Bryce Drew out at Vandy Suddenly, that jump to the Missouri Valley Conference might have been a bit more than anticipated. Vandy, not Valpo Too many Drews The same Drew. He hasn't coached at Valpo in 3 years.
