      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...

            Who wrote that article ?

              Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

                I remember when SA was hired there was reporting that RPI would increase the hockey budget beyond what Fridge had. Recruiting did seem to pick up - perhaps due to SA's capabilities, perhaps due to increased funding, likely some combination. In my mind the mediocrity has been less about budgets or recruiting, and more about actual coaching: lineups, game plans, motivation... This is why I'd prefer a candidate with previous head coaching success. I realize such a candidate can be difficult to entice and I'm not informed enough to know who could be poached. I hope we pony up if someone is available.

                  I recall that SA got RPI to make other types of scholarship money available to hockey players. In the past it had been felt that because there were athletic scholarships, other scholarship funds were not ever given to hockey players. An example is minority scholarships which previous were not awarded to hockey players.

                    You need more than just a good HC, need the funding to back it, and that means more than HC salary or schollies which I would expect at a minimum are funded to the full extent allowed at RPI. You need the extra players that push the other players. Internal competition I'm sure most of you would agree is what pushes the players to get better.

                    Look at UNO, well known HC with previous success and what happened? Look at MTU (which plays in an old arena but kept immaculate and updated) which seems to be rising from the ashes, got a HC without any real HC experience but he would not come until they made the investment of proper funding. ND used to be a dumpster fire, (don't look behind the curtain) grabbed a proven winning HC and bumped up funding. Union, (GRRR salt in a wound) more needs to be said?

                      Categorically false. Harvard, Yale, Princeton cannot get kids in that Brown, Cornell, and Dartmouth can.

                        This is likely why names with success in the junior leagues have come up here, as that would be the obvious "step up" for a youth league head coach. Assistant coaches you might be able to judge bench experience if the head coach was suspended for a game, as what we really seem to be wanting is a good bench coach. An appropriate balance of all factors is the most desirable, as we shouldn't create an old comedy routine of over-compensating for a flaw.

                          Candace: I had the pleasure of meeting Seth on several occasions when Rensselaer came to Denver; the first time was right after he had taken the reins there. I’m sad to see him go. RPI is a tough program because of the academics. Seth had seemed to be on the verge of really getting things together a couple of times, but it just didn’t happen. Regardless, I wish him well and hope to see him in the college ranks again soon.

                          Academics is no doubt an issue. Looking at media guides from Ivies, they usually take history, etc.

                              It looks like there has been an important upgrade to the HFH.
