  • Full Schedule released: https://miamiredhawks.com/news/2019/4/17/2019-20-hockey-schedule-revealed.aspx
  • Mannino and Beal both out according to CHN twitter

  • I've got to be honest, I haven't even heard of this league. I wikipedia'd it, and there is no page for it. Don't know what channel it was on, never saw any advertisements for it, and now it has apparently folded. Without this thread, I never would h…
  • Where's this coming from? I don't see a post on miamiredhawks or on Twitter. BG is a good opening series.
  • Of 299 teams we have the 290th SOS by RPI (http://warrennolan.com/baseball/2019/rpi-live) 13 of our wins are against EMU, YSU, Oakland and St. Bonaventure who are a combined 18-76-1, which includes a 3 game series between YSU and Oakland. The three …
  • Not to be the bad guy (nor belittle the importance of equal opportunities), but I should point this out since it hasn't been mentioned yet.   Because of Title IX, there has to be an equal spending on male and female sports.  (no matter how much of …

  • While it is true that Goggin generates more non-athletics revenue than other Miami facilities, it still requires about a $2.2 million allocation from student general fees to support its operations.  You could argue that's a fair allocation for its u…

  • Didn't expect that. Hope there is a new coach lined up already
  • OSU, no question.
    in UC or OSU? Comment by MooreHawk March 17
  • I am old so was around when being just in the top half of Division 1 would be considered weak for a season let alone a yearly end result.=> then you were also old enough to remember when there were half as many power Conference teams as there are…
  • 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 wo…
  • Hmm, I wonder what the computers have to say about OU. They just fired their coach who was 40-50 in MAC play and 81-77 overall. So per Sagarin and Massey below, from last year to this year, the computers say OU improved, and they fired their coach. …
  • The past 7 wins have come against Oakland and YSU who are both 0-13 on the season. NKU is just 1-11 and St. Bonaventure is 1-6. That said you can only beat the teams on the schedule and it isn't like we're trying to put together an at-large resume.
  • For understandable reasons, our coaching staff is posting on Twitter about celebrating Purdue’s B10 title. But damned if they don’t seem more excited about Purdue than any game we won this season. I don't see a big deal here. I think it should be…
  • I don't see a point in firing Rico unless there is a very clearer better coach that could take over which I'm not sure there is. That said there needs to be a drastic improvement next year.
  • Miami drops to 7-10 in MAC play and 15-15 overall. So hard to say we have had any improvement since last year when we finished 16-17. Very disappointing play tonight. Advanced stats would disagree. By Kenpom our adjEM has been: 2017: -10.05 2018: …
  • Doesn't look like we lose a bowl. The line up should be – Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl vs. American Athletic – Dollar General Bowl vs. Sun Belt – Famous Idaho Potato Bowl vs. Mountain West – Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl vs. Conference USA –Raycom …
  • According to Muffett McGraw , the atmosphere at Toledo helps prepare her team for big league and tournament games later in the year, plus "Toledo just deserves it". Pretty smart. Easy trip to make, winnable road game but with 6k in attendance (accor…

  • agc was looking for global rankings however though a top 100 US University is probably in the top 500 globally.
  • My understanding is that most university rankings are based to a significant degree on research output, which Miami doesn't focus on as much. We're third on U.S News for Undergraduate Teaching which they describe as "Many colleges have a strong co…
  • He was a Redskin back when it was fashionable....them came the RedHawks....then the Red & White. I shudder to think what's next. The Red and White was one of the original names used prior to the Redskins so I believe your timeline is incorrect.
  • We are 0-12 our last 12 games. 3 ties and 9 losses.  Overall 9-13-4. Last year we were 12-20-5. Year before that 9-20-7. Year before that 15-18-3. This isn't exactly a reassuring trend. My errors in contract compensation in another thread aside.  I …
  • Tim Lester got a two year extension this year. Could be a lateral move looking for stability.
  • Of the past 6 series however, 4 were on the road. The two at home were against two good teams in North Dakota and St. Cloud and we essentially split both. I don't think a split against Duluth and sweep against CC (who we split with on the road) is …
  • A medical redshirt is 30% of games and a season ending injury, so 9 games would be too many, I think.
  • Team has played much better at home then away. Need to go 3-1 over the next two weeks to set up for the end of the season. Three rough road trips left in @St Cloud, @Denver and @Duluth.
