Are there any smart and energetic sports nuts on here that are willing to run with this job (https://www.jobs.mtu.edu/postings/4360%E2%80%8B)? Wes has moved on from MI Tech.

IIRC, bigblue has called the Monte "a fcuking dive" on more than one occasion. I can't say that I disagree, it's definitely the preferred establishment of Hancock barflies.

B&B is probably the better choice. Good luck. :p

I may have called the Monte a ****ing dive before, but that's not a bad thing. I don't mind dive bars, but the Monte is most definitely a dive.

I only get to Houghton once, maybe twice a year, and that is to recruit. The last time I was there, in April, was the rare time I was in Houghton by myself, and didn't have anything going on in the evening. But was only in town for 1 day.

Were the reps you got anything like the one you sent?

"Seriously, **** Off. We don't need your bull**** around here. -bbdl"

Well, no. Most people don't have this advanced handle of the English language, like I do.

Tech can't afford me. :D

that's the problem... for what is reputed to be a high-demand job they don't pay much. They need to find a young energetic person with all kinds of enthusiasm and loyalty to the cause.

Wes has moved on from MI Tech.If the job title was changed to "Director of Hockey Communication and Jersey Operations" AND they could live with my brand of public relations, I would apply. Unfortunately, I don't either of my conditions would be acceptable to Tech so I'm a no go on this one. I'll have to stick with selling ventilation equipment by day and trading old jerseys in my spare time.

I hope an outstanding candidate can be found. Tech's SID post has always been excellent from Dennis Hanks to Fish to Wes. Best wishes to Wes and a huge thanks for all he's done!

Well since no one else posted it yet...
Being the guardian/trustee of the cup, means you have to keep it clean.
Time for a little Sauna and then a dip in the lake for the cup.

I see the schedule was released. From memory here, but Duluth, followed by Minnesota State in the first two weekends and then Minnesota State again late in the year. Only one series vs BGSU and Ferris. Maybe the toughest schedule in quite a while.

Thought so as well. Is it due to challenges of scheduling or tMel sees something special?

I'm sure they just want to play the top teams as Mel had mentioned that in the past. Unfortunately it seems Tech has to go on the road to get that done.

In general, I don't think there are any issues finding NC games... IF you are willing to travel.

MSU and MI were 2-for-1s, so they had to finish the back-end of those deals this year. Duluth, I'm pretty confident will make a return trip to Houghton in one of the following 2-3 seasons. ND sounded like a last-minute add, so I'm guessing Tech was supposed to be playing WI as had been discussed, and that deal is now on hold with the regime change in Madison. I wouldn't hold my breath on ever seeing ND in Houghton.

On jersey front, if anyone want a Tanner Kero Ice Hogs game used jersey the team is selling one* of his white jerseys from last season. The red jersey and his practice jersey will also be up on Ebay later this summer. It is beyond what I am willing to pay for it at the opening bid so if anyone else has an interest, have at it. The auction ends tomorrow.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/182147378206

* I asked the team if Kero wore more than one jersey as it seemed really clean for a guy who played almost the entire season in the AHL. The team said "he wore at least two whites and maybe more..." Given how clean it is, I'm going with WAY more than two. It looks like it was worn for a couple games at most.

Of course this is the same team that just sold an unused Star Wars night jersey for $2,850 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kyle-Cumiskey-IceHogs-jersey-/182063711427). An unused goalie mask from that game with Star Wars paint scheme only sold for around $1,600. Heck the mask and paint job likely cost that much. Folks in IL will buy anything and pay crazy money for it...

You're not wrong. Prices used to go much higher for Chicago Wolves jerseys back in the AHL days and the early AHL days. After the championship in 2008, popularity in Wolves jerseys waned.

The Hawks winning helps boost the sales for Icehogs jerseys, because it's a chance at Blackhawks players jerseys before they went full NHL. Icehogs jerseys have gotten very expensive to purchase lately.


As for how clean this is, this was likely worn around the time he was called up to the Blackhawks.

Clearly those Illinoisans ought to limit themselves to $1 less than what Ryan Johnson is willing to pay. Craziness! :p

Does anyone know if there is a way to pick your seat location when purchasing season tickets online or do you have to call the box office to pick specific seats? I have been unable to find that option.

I believe there is a seat map at least the last time I bought tickets there was. its been 2 years though.
I'm here to say I would like to see the MPS on either Periscope or Facebook live. The era of the radio only show is dead, long live radio streaming to your phone.
I think it would not only be cool but a good recruiting tool.

I felt lucky to get a Clay Wilson second hand. I've never bought anything direct from any of the Chicago teams - NHL or minor league. They are all out of my price range.
Clearly those Illinoisans ought to limit themselves to $1 less than what Ryan Johnson is willing to pay. Craziness! :pMakes sense to me (and my budget).
