  • Re: UAH Hockey 2012-13: Still breathing

    So much for that. Go figure right after I stick my neck out I am officially shot down as wrong. LOL.

    As for Gwoz and Alaska, his name has been thrown around so much I can't remember what's official and what's speculation. I'm apparently just all kinds of wrong.

      Dang it. I was hoping Gwoz would turn UAH into a national power. Then the NCHC would kick out St. Cloud and bring in UAH as a replacement.

        I would've been stunned if he came.

        • Corbett visited day after Gwoz & my guess will be the new coach

            If UAH spends the money some on this thread seem to think will be spent the program should be A1.
            Gwoz at this point is dragging a lot of drama along with him.
            Corbett was the favorite of many for the UAA job and if UAH can get him the program will be on solid footing.
            Just random thoughts from an outsider.

              Well that de-escalated quickly...
              He wants $$$$$$$$$$$Texas, obviously. Not just for his salary, but also program funding.

              I mean, if a name program like Maine can't come up with Gwoz's money... *shrug*

              My bet is that he replaces either Eaves or Anastos next summer.

                If I had to guess between the two, I'm guessing Eaves. I'm not sure MSU is ready to give up on an alum quite yet.

                  Kinda hard to give up on a coach who made the NCAA in his first year. He's got at least 2 more years.

                      Has Poapst applied for the UAH position? Has he indicated a desire to be a college head coach? No doubt he would be a good candidate, but if his goal is to work in the NHL, he's a lot closer to it working in the Blackhawks system than he would be in Huntsville.

                        He applied. Feels he is a better developer of talent and likes the D1 stability. Type of guy who knows how to build a program and would have ushl kids coming. NHL teams would send players there to develop

                          Okay, I am out of the loop because I'm doing an internship in DC instead of sitting in the coffee shop I frequent at home reading up about college hockey four hours a day. Who is this Corbett guy?

                            From what I gather, Corbett is a DU alum and long-time Air Force assistant hungry to be a head coach. Coming from Air Force and Frank Serratore's tutelage, I expect you'd see a very driven guy who believes in team discipline, and scoffs at the term "players' coach".

                              Derek Schooley's done good work at RMU having trod the same path. A DU connection helps; one of our current ACs is Gavin Morgan (DU '99), and I'm sure that he bent Gwoz's ear pretty hard about coming to town. Of course, having an opening meant that Gwoz would at least take a look — look how many people we've had contact us.

                                Gwoz wants B1G money , that's been evident since DU fired him. If a wealthy private business school doesn't want to pay what he demands, it's highly unlikely any college hockey school outside of the D1-A football schools would pay him Lucia money.

                                If you've even entertained Gwoz, you guys will be fine. It says everything about your administrators being serious, and making a good choice, as opposed to UAA farting around for two months, with D3 coaches on the finalists' list. When Tech was looking for a new coach, I knew they were serious when they wined and dined Blais for even more money, after Pearson was in doubt.
