    1:02 I think there's a little symbolism here...

    I'm not pleased with the process and clearly, neither are many of you. I'm shifted my concern from the manner of coach Appert's dismissal and the selection of coach Smith to the President and AD and the leadership exercised at that level. (With a bow to Jimmy Breslin, Does Anybody Here Know How to Play This Game?)

    I support the people on the ice. The folks in the VIP lounge? Don't ask.

        Heard from one of the players that they have a meeting this afternoon with the AD. They're expecting to be told that Dave Smith is their new head coach.

            Dave Smith is following one new person on Twitter: Bailey Conger.

            Bailey Conger in recent days on Twitter has stopped following anything RPI related (he had been) and started to follow Hockey East and Seth Appert.

            You can draw your own conclusions from this.

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

                Amen! Iím interested to see who he brings in for staff. Iím sure by this time he has been contacted by many candidates and will get input this weekend. I doubt he will bring Large with him as he is probably a candidate to take his spot at Canisius. Iím wondering how much staff money he was given as a part of his contract, so he can get good people. I also wonder if he will bring any of the Canisius commits over, I can only see one that might be okay more from a tactical standpoint. If Conger is a problem I hope he gets someone that can work him right.

RPI doesn't move as swift as it did w/ Appert on anything, and it's a response that aligns with this is what we have just seen - basically replacing the current coach with another who has about as similar of a track record as you can find.
                  I think the most losses in school history sealed it for SA. Without going into details, My understanding of the Hackett situation was it was a season long issue which literally began as soon as players came back in the August, culminating in the divorce

Hopefully everyone's through the five stages by the end of September so we can focus on the two words/abbreviations that unite us all: RPI Hockey.
                    Agree 100%. We don't have to like the process, but we support the squad. Go Red

                          Will the new coach be at the banquet in a couple weeks? It would seem to be a good chance for him to meet the community and fan base.

                            I thought that meant today, especially with no classes going on etc

                              He certainly should be if he is signed.

                                I would also think that we can do better that most Canisius recruits.
