      Usually a partial schedule comes out around the time of the banquet that is two and a half weeks away. We do know that the Bears host UNO at home, Clarkson at Portland and travel to the Ralph for a couple with Sioux.

        What ABB said, what goalie has gotten better after Grant left?, the answer, none. Scott Darling, had talent, no direction. Last season, more of the same, talent is there, no guidance. I believe the physical talent is there with either guy, its the mental part thats lacking. Grant was the king of getting a guy ready
        I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

          I think more or less you'll see a rotation for the first half of the season if not the whole season...Sullivan is not the answer over a 34 game slate...he is hot and cold...thats why a tandem would suit his style better....while Ouellette has alot of upside,he needs to grow into the Div.1 hockey and with that get his act together,staying focused each and every game he plays...so on paper the netminders look to be iffy at best...unless theirs a turn around in both then goaltending again will be one of Maine's weak points going into the season.

            This year's team was pretty well loaded.Better than a few of Shawn's teams that won 20+ games and help build his legend.Tim just does not know how to utilize talent when he finally has it...The last straw,IMO.

            Tell ya what,though,I don't expect Maine to buy him out.We're looking at two years of whatever we get.I'm just hopeful that the search for TW's successor will start yesterday,and that '13-'14 will be the season that starts the turnaround in Orono.
            Yeah.......hopefully by 2020 most of us will still be alive and Maine will be a player in the college hockey world again.

              As an optomist, perhaps the seemless glass and better lines of sight will help the last few Timmay apologists see how the teams do not seem to improve with his coaching? If this thought has been covered previously, I apologize, just searching for a silver lining.

              I hate to mix politics on this board, especially after the earlier comments, but did any one think of hanging the mural from the Maine Department of Labor in the Alfond? It seemed like that was all the BDN covered for about 3 weeks. More people would see it in the Alford then in the Maine Dept. of Labor.

                Kills me to see two basically sound goalies not getting the attention they need to become quality D1 goalies. Just kills me to see this waste. It's a travesty.
                I believe in equality of effort. In life, in hockey in everything.

                  Looking at the front page of USCHO, at least one school's administration isn't willing to settle for mediocrity in their hockey program. TIMMAY, send them your resume, tell about all the final fours, and the Penrose, really sell it.
                  What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                    I'm planning to be alive..!

                    Related thought:I think Tim has dug himself so deep a hole that the only thing that could get him another extension is two consecutive FFs,maybe even a NC.

                    Barring that very unlikely scenario,I believe he'll be gone forever in a couple of years.I don't see merely making the NCAAs once or twice more as being good enough.I think his body of work won't be seen as redeemed by that,even if it happens.(And I'd bet the farm right now that it won't.)

                      Not surprised to see Roll's head roll.I know a couple of CU alums-pretty big donors,too-and they have been apoplectic for years now.Clarkson has a worse case of Maine-itis than Maine itself has had in the past few seasons.Since their appearance in the Rochester regional a few years back,the Knights have been even more irrelevant than have the Bears.(And that's saying something.)

                        What saves TW butt as of now is the 3 year gift he got from former AD Blake James...the sad part is the hole he's dug..(TW)..has swallowed the program and fans also. It will take time but he's a goner in the long run.

                            LOL.....was thinking the same thing. The guy even won an ECAC title (has TIMMAY ever won a conference title?). Would love to see Montgomery get a shot........that would sell out the CCCC next season!

                              ...and I know of a couple of hundred great recommendations he could get from well established members of the local community. The more I think about this, Clarkson-Whitehead has a really nice ring to it!

                                Soooooo......................, looks like there might be a head coach position opening at TIMMAY's alma mater. I say he should go for it.
