Not just those two...numerous other kids not involved with that stuff.

Let me ask you NU fans something, Mike Cavanaugh interviewed for the NU job a while back, correct? Was it when Cronin was hired? Both times? I can't remember. Anyway, what I don't know is after the interview process, was he really interested in the NU job? Wouldn't that be someone to go after rather than a scout?

If we cared about winning, which Roby clearly does not.

Let’s enjoy this season while we can because next year will be much worse! I have never criticized a NU player or a NU coach and I am not going to start now. NU needs more fans not critics! The men’s hockey team is in desperate need of a new AD. Our present AD is acting like Humphrey Bogart did as Captain Queg, in the movie “The Cain Mutiny”.

Joe Manno has been added to Dubuque (USHL) active roster

If true and he reports, will be interesting to see if he has any effect on the three other Dubuque recruits' opinions.

What is there to enjoy, losses are mounting and players are leaving...this is a joke.

OK, who thinks this kid is good? People talk about players leaving here like this is the only place. Last December BU lost Charlie Coyle, this year Cisse. So Manno leaves, big deal. How will the ever replace his production?

Can we also talk about how we suck? What did BU do after they lost Trivino and Coyle, they lit it up and became a top 5 team. We will not be doing that.

steve, I honestly feel bad for you, you remind me of Al Davis. Oblivious to mediocrity and failure.

Manno is headed for Dubuque, because he didn't feel that he was getting enough ice time and enough PP time. He'd been getting 12-15 minutes a game. He got <10 minutes Saturday after being banged up a bit and not playing in the the third period. The parting was amicable and mutual. He finished the semester and was very solid academically. He needs to be smarter in the O zone. He was good about tracking down pucks, but not good at knowing what to do with it once he got it. He missed his share of open nets, but so have a lot of our guys.

Chances are better than even that JM will replace him with a more productive/smarter player who'll be ready to come in and help next fall.

They went 13-10 without those two.

I feel bad for your guys, what the hell will the next coach do? Be the guy who will do what no other NU coach has been able to do, win! Take a look at the last 20 years, hell 30 years. 1 HE title, 3 beanpots and 3 NCAA appearances. I liked Cronin, but did anyone think his last season here that team was a 6th place team? I did not,m I thought they would finish in the top of the league and go to NCAA's. They **** the bed. I've been rooting for this team for the last 30 years, its been the same thing all long, every now and then they put together a wining year but always filter back to who they are. So we can fire Madigan, bring in the next guy, who always looks better than what is here Then in a couple of years when we have a bunch of 6-10 place finish's we can throw out another name of a coach that will definitely be better than what we have.

Darcy hurt, that was a big part of the future, no doubt about it. Manno is nothing, gives them another scholarship. Seems to me like there are a bunch of quitters on this team. Probably explains why they are where there are. But if you guys want to blame the coach's then go ahead. Its easier, cause in one swoop you hire a new coach and everything is right. But if you have to admit its the players, then its a real big problem that will take years to fix.

Steve, that's how it works when you lose. You aren't given forever to start showing results. I will say that barring scandal or Colorado football results, every coach should be given more than a couple years. Sounds like the majority of NU fans think Madigan is a pretty good recruiter, but just can't coach them. That seems reasonable to me. Have him stay on as recruiting coordinator ;)

There are plenty of examples of guys who can recruit but can't coach.

...The program we both have followed for years and that we both love to our very bone marrow is disintegrating right before our eyes....You want something to complain about? Start with Peter Roby!

I hate it when I quote myself.

For a time though I believe they got hot before cooling off.

Steve.. everything about NU has changed in the last 20 odd years for the better (save the hockey).

Then it came to the hockey & they hired Cronin.. a step in the right direction. We saw some success & good players including a #2 National ranking. Too bad things panned a certain way; but they could have more than adequately replaced Cronin ith someone qualified nationally. Instead.. with Madigan it was almost an impulse decision to hire someone from fundraising -from right there on campus. As has been pointed out.. he is a recruiter. HC.. unfortunately - no. Sorry!

Oh what the heck.. we're rooting for the same team.. i hope you're right (with the players coming in nxt season) & i'm wrong.

I just think Petr Roby blew this hire big time & Madigan still could have played a solid role with the hockey.. only.. behind the scenes.. not the bench.

Anyway, what I don't know is after the interview process, was he really interested in the NU job? Wouldn't that be someone to go after rather than a scout?

Cavanaugh interviewed for the position when Greg Cronin got the job, he did not apply for it this time around. At this point, I think Cavanaugh expects to take over the helm when and if Jerry York decides to call it a career.

If the confidence surrounding the team wasn't bad enough, losing another player midseason might be the straw that breaks the camel's back. Before we know it, there will not be enough players on the roster to field a complete team. It scares me that I'm hearing people who are close to the team (i.e. trainers and player's girlfriends) say that the team is tuning Madigan out because they do not believe he is the right person to lead them. When they first announced that he was among the three finalists for the job, I thought that was just to appease the alumni, however, when I heard he got the job, I was beside myself. I understand that the guy has been around the game as a scout for a long time, but to hire a coach who hasn't been behind a bench in over twenty years is preposterous. Anyhow, I hope they can somehow salvage this season with some shred of dignity.
