That said, you know it's lean times when women's basketball and men's tennis are the only two sports on this campus worth watching right now.

FWIW, the men's tennis team only has 2 wins against Big Ten schools in the past 3 seasons.

I'm sure he meant M. Tennis in jest.

First problem with what your saying is that the extra cash may not be allowed to go towards hockey. Many donors ear mark donations to go towards specific programs. So the successfulness of the football team probably resulted in more donations going towards the football program and nothing else.

MSU would probably use that extra cash to either cut aid to the Athletic department or put it in other more needy departments around the school. Hockey is low on the priority list in times like this.I wasn't talking about donations, I was referring to the Capital One Bowl money and the unexpected attendance and season ticket increases as a result of the great football season. No one can argue that the revenue will be higher than what was budgeted.

Who knows what the Michigan State Athletic Department might do with an unexpected surplus, but it seems to me to be a unique opportunity to shore up the third or fourth highest revenue sport at the school.

This is what I was thinking. You can't tell me a place like Michigan State can't/won't spend "big bucks" on a hockey coach. What qualifies as big bucks for college hockey coaches anyway? 400K?

It's not that the $300 to 400K is a big salary for a head coach. It's the $150K assistants he'll now want as well the outcry from the other 25 MSU coaches who all want more for them and their assistants. For a big school, sometimes the extra constraints aren't worth it...

FWIW Gwozdecky's current DU contract runs through 2014.

As does Coach Appert. I think Nate Leaman may have also been mentioned as a possibility, he is up in 2016.

Interesting, though Gwoz seems to be the name most often thrown around for the Penn State job. Should be an interesting off-season in the coaching ranks...Wading in late...

Which is now the #1 vacancy in D-I land - MSU or PSU? Do all the resumes that have been sent to Happy Valley suddenly get copied to East Lansing??

I think #1 would be MSU, given they already have a varsity team. PSU is definitely on the prowl and will shovel out the big bucks, but they don't start playing even independent until 2012. I don't know if the coach they hire in will want to coach the club team, unless he feels it will take a year for the players to become appropriately conditioned.

Why would he ever consider coaching the club team?:confused:

I'm going with Cole or Appert.I think the job is signed, sealed and delivered to Danton Cole right now. He has program ties and he'll be dirt cheap.

If Cole is offerred the job, he will 100% iron-clad guaranteed take it - unless the terms are insulting.

That's taking the easy way out. Yes, he got UAH to the NCAAs, but that was as the champion of a pitiful conference. He was at Bowling Green for three years before that - and we all know how successful BGSU has been. MSU is not like that school down the road - you don't have to be a "Michigan State man" to coach here. Maybe there is someone out there who doesn't have ties to MSU who could be just the right person. Give it time.

The only reasoning, and this is a severe longshot which I wouldn't think would actually happen, would be if the club members are the ones that will be on the varsity team, and the coach wants to be more familiar with the hand he/she is dealt, assuming the players' willingness to play is to be honored.

Not sure if it has been mentioned or what direction they may want to take. But I am sure that Brent Brekke at Miami will throw his hat in the ring. He has CCHA ties and will get a job shortly. This may not be the one but I think he would be a good fit. I don't want him to leave but its a matter of time until he does for a head coaching job. He is a great recruiter and will be successfull. Maybe they want a proven coach and if they do Seth Appert would be a good fit but I think they will have their pick of some really good coaches.

MSU doesn't get the "Capital One money." All the Big Ten (or 11 or 12) schools split all bowl monies equally. The league puts it all in a pot, deducts expenses, then all 11 current teams get an equal share. The actual payment to State will be about $3.5 million.
