Given what we've seen with ECAV, the gear, and what not, I highly doubt funding is an issue.

You say that but that was a general build up for everyone.

Depending how far things have fallen, 4-5 years is barely enough. Should be able to show improvement but don't expect much more.

Real question is, whatever coach gets hired IS there the proper funding for success?

I am not close enough to the program/institute to know the financials involved in the funding of the program. I'd like to think proper funding was/will be made available to whoever takes the job. Then again that opinion piece printed in the Troy Record seems to suggest otherwise.

I could care less if it's Ben Barr, Jason Lammers, or Santa Claus. In my book, he/she gets five years (about the time it takes for your first recruits to become seniors; I won't hold the previous hand against the coach) to get something together to satisfy. If he/she pulls it off, consistency is what I look for. If it doesn't deliver, my support is lost.

So 5 years to turn things around. Ok sounds solid. I'd think Santa might be busy around the holidays and wouldn't be totally focused on the team.

CBS 6 had part of McElroy's interview from last week, and he made it sound like the administration is going to do whatever they can to help the new coach succeed moving forward..So who knows...it's towards the end of this video.

Not to mention, how much does he know about hockey? ;)

And so he should. You'd expect that from any Athletics Department.

The site rpihockey.net has a poll up for who should be the next head coach. No surprise as to the top candidates, given the site... http://rpihockey.net/polls/

After one week? Not sure I buy this... After all, it took a month to find the last coach, not to mention they may not want to go for another AC...

Source? Or is this just your way of wanting to be relevant again?

If it is, I am concerned that he has no Head Coach experience. I think that Jim Montgomery did the right thing to go to the USHL after RPI.

Read an article about the NMU Coaches dismissal on CHN, first fan comment was to hire Appert.

I think that Jim Montgomery did the right thing to go to the USHL after RPI.I do see your point about the HCing job first but Barr has tutored under some pretty impressive HCs (http://www.eliteprospects.com/staff.php?staff=2061) where as Monty was a Volunteer in his 1 year at Notre Dame before working under Appert for 4yrs (http://www.eliteprospects.com/staff.php?staff=1527 )

Imagine if Maine had decided Shawn Walsh shouldn't be hired because he didn't have any HC experience...

Today is 15 March 2017. There are 200 days until RPI's next game.


This is based upon 1 October 2017 for the start of next season.

I have a hypothesis about some of his sources and why he would not want to reveal them, but in this case, the sources I believe him to have would not be privileged of this information.

But were they burned by an AC with no HC experience? After all, Tim-may was previously a HC at UML... not to mention, his records didn't look as bad...

Relevant ? Your an idiot. I'm an rpi fan and just want them to win again and get to lake placid.

Article is an epic fail in so many ways, outside of Appert's personal attributes. So are many of the comments on this board. Excuses = Losers. With all that I am reading, why doesn't poor little RPI just move to Division III.

Who wrote that article ?
