    Rebuild? Again? What a joke
    I don't think a single person expected this to not be a rebuilding season? Losing Meyer, Sherwood, and Belpedio? Then adding 9 new skaters (and the star didn't make it because he's busy with 36 points in 33 games in the OHL because he would've missed the first half of the season).

    Adding Matthew Barry (11 points in 13 games to lead Holy Cross, will miss first half due to transfer), Brett Murray (3rd in the USHL in scoring with 44 in 36 games and Buffalo Sabres draft pick), and Ryan Savage (19 in 33 USHL games) to just replace Melnick up front adds a lot of size and scoring options.

    On the backend, 6'3" Alec Capstick who has 26 in 43 BCHL games, 6'4" Jack Clement from the USHL, Uula Ruikka (9 in 26 USHL games), and 6'3" Matt Kessel (9 in 34 USHL games, former #7 overall USHL draft pick) to replace Hutton (who hasn't played well lately) and River.

    And I think the goalie spot will be in safe hands when Larkin leaves with Ben Kraws.

    But all of that is because of new recruiting pipelines that didn't exist before the coaching changes. What did anyone honestly expect?

    Martin can fix his career by having a couple big years . 
    A coach can get a better job by winning at their current school.

    You know if Hue Jackson is hired, he would probably hire Marvin as his d-coordinator... Let's imagine that scenario.

  • MAC bowl games

    Moving to the FCS doesn't make financial sense. What you lose in terms of buy game money, tv money and national attention isn't made up by the lower costs. There is a reason that the only team to drop down has been Idaho, who lost their conference to play in and couldn't afford to be an independent.

    We've had a higher ranked class 4 of the past 5 years than OU. I don't think we are somehow crippling ourselves in recruiting academically somehow.

    Then it’s all about having a bad coaching staff? I think it’s so much more than that. Marshall has leaped frog us, UC has leaped frog us, Ohio U has leaped frog us in basketball and football. Something is wrong with men’s sports at Miami.



    $$$

    Bates put things so far behind. Martin got us out of 0-12 but he's hit his limit. Basketball is improving. Have you looked at what UC has put into their program?

    what is the answer and what is the prognosis.

    UC's budget is over $60mil/year, nearly double ours. We did an $80mil fundraiser across the whole athletic department. They did an $87mil renovation on fifth third arena alone.

    And don't even suggest FCS without looking at what that does to income among other downsides.

    All I ask is that we return to the top of our conference, and I’m not sure that is possible.
    Co MAC East last season. One game away this season and beat the champs. Basketball is clearly right there and will probably win next season. Not sure how anyone could say it'll never happen unless they aren't following it at all.

  • Special Teams Coach

    Special teams was much better this year with Jon Palcic as a designated coach. A move that should have been made well before year 5. Special teams is much to important not to have a designated coach. Palcic was excellent!
    Having a dedicated ST coordinator wasn't possible in college until a new rule this year increased the permitted number of coaches.
