    If he persists in this insane theory that it's easier to build a brand new program than fix an existing one, then the only way to make this better is to scrap the entire hockey operation for two years and restart it in 2020.
    I didn't see anything beyond this than AD-speak. He's saying the things he needs to say before he pulls the plug at the end of the season. By pull the plug, I mean the firing is a package deal, so there are no hard feelings (It's Anastos and Miller, and let Newton make his own decision).

      I have no major issue with recruiting. I'm actually surprised he's doing the level of convincing he's managed to do despite the obvious coaching issues and development track record.

        I didn't believe the rumor until someone posted in SpartanMag, finally, a link. At least this is what Fox Motors club believes.

          According to his Wikipedia page Mike's brother Steve (Cam's uncle) attended MSU (before my time). So there are some family ties...but considering his dad attended Michigan it is an interesting commitment to pick up.

            OK, it also appears there's an athletics connection to MSU as well (aunt is a golf coach here).

            Edit: Bradley Marek has joined Knuble in committing to MSU. They're #'s 1 and 2 for Fox Motors U-16 in points this season. Looks like Marek's also had a cup of coffee in the USHL as well (2 games with Bloomington).

              I don't know much about youth hockey.. I usually judge players once they get to MSU.. but I'm assuming these are pretty good kids to be getting considering the dumpster fire of a season MSU is having?

                Well, at least we didn't lose. Though the shootout result has probably solidified us as the 6 seed.

                Tonight's game only available on BTN Plus. I don't understand that. Only the Wings play tonight so FSD would be open, but not even Comcast wanted this game?

                  Both teams suck.

                      Neither can your team.

                            As curious of a stat that is in regards to the road games it is astonishing the home fans have witnessed 2 wins all season to this point.

                            I do think this team has future potential. I badly want a coaching staff that I can confidently believe will help it achieve that potential. As agonizing as the season has been this team has not had any games as wholly disgusting as the 9-2 loss to UM or the 6-1 loss to PSU, which still goes down in my experience as the worst performance I've ever seen out of an MSU hockey team at Munn.

                              I just watched a recording of the shootout lose to scUM.
                              WHY, why did tCHHCoMSU not put his leading scorer (Mason Appleton) in the shootout? Another reason this coach is in over his head.

                                This season has been an absolute disaster, but that Saturday game was pretty enjoyable. (Granted, it was pretty much a pillow fight on ice skates, but a fun pillow fight nonetheless.)
