    Did not return to complete his degree but is not many credits from completion. At this time i would doubt much interest as he is being considered for other positions at a much higher level. No question he would help offensively and is great with younger players but probably would not have any of the recruiting connections necessary.

      It appears that, although RPI will still play WPI, that will not be a Liberty League game. Springfield and Kings Point are gone from the schedule altogether. While there has been talk about Ithaca and Alfred joining the Liberty League and both of those are on RPI's schedule for this season, those are not indicated as Liberty League games, either.

      So, if I'm understanding correctly, that means the Liberty League will have only five members for football this year.

            The d3football website indicates that Ithaca is now a member of the Liberty League, so apparently that will be a league game, even though the RPIathletics website does not indicate so. If that's correct, then RPI will play five league games.

            d3football shows that WPI, Springfield, and Kings Point have all joined the NEWMAC, while Alfred will remain a member of the Empire Eight, at least for this year.

              Ithaca thinks they are in the Liberty League too. http://athletics.ithaca.edu/schedule.aspx?path=football
              FWIW, a daughter of one of my cousins is currently a sophomore there.

A boat load of his players have gone on to D1.

                interesting thought - a lot of NHL guys send their kids to Salisbury. basically the same formula as BU or BC - kids only stay at Salisbury for a year or two then head off to NTDP or USHL. definitely wins.

                  Back from the pizza party. Not a lot to report. Dr Lee talked about the coaching position. He wouldn't mention names, but said there has been a lot of interest from outside. There are several people involved in the hiring process, including the AC's, SAJ and the AD, several former players and some alumnus. He did say there will be an announcement in a couple of weeks.
                  Most of the rest of the conversation was about the renovation of HFH. Once again, he wouldn't go into details but there will be a significant amount of $$ involved. They will be going into further detail around October.

                    how would you gauge the mood of the players regarding the whole situation?

                      I really didn't chat with any of the players except for Prapavessis, who BTW said that he will be returning next season. But the impressions that I noticed was more of acceptance on what happened then anything else.

                          Myself and one of my friends will be making the trek - booked our flight through Stewart (hooray Norwegian direct flights for cheap!) and will be enjoying two weeks on the Emerald Isle.

                            I was thinking about it, but I don't think I will be going. Sort of tempting to see Northern Ireland in combination with hockey. By the way, Maine visits RPI for two games in mid October. If Maine and RPI can some how win the first Friendship Four game they will face each other 3 times in just over a month. Enjoy your trip.
