    Considering I have not been given the "privilege" of being in the decision room with Dr. Jackson and Dr. McElroy, the answer to your specific question is no. However, many recruiting organizations/divisions (whether internal or external) have developed a reputation of "-isms" in my experience, and RPI has shown themselves in the past to be no exception, including at the administrative levels, and therefore I give corresponding evidence behind my hypothesis. Call me whatever you want with this belief, but I'm just telling it like it is.

Yes, I understand that men's program brings in more money and that the greenbacks speak, but it does expose some of the previous feelings I've expressed about the 'tute. Furthermore, given one of the assistants is being interviewed, and considering one of the things I had mentioned about at least the way RPI was when I was there... I have a visceral reaction that it's hers if she wants it.

    Based on the way he was playing last year, this is definitely deserved, and I hope he continues to develop that potential, as he has a very good chance at being quite successful.

    Today is 26 June 2017. There are 96 days until RPI's next game.


    This is based upon 30 September 2017 for the start of next season.

    It does bring up lots of questions, regarding leadership and administrative backing of hockey. Obviously no rules about needing to post the position. Where will his hockey knowledge come from, even more so in the women's area of hockey?

    I'd like to think it means he can't wait to get started on his second season at RPI, so that over the next three years he can continue his development into the sort of player that could be useful to the Penguins.

    I have a sinking feeling, though, that it means he's going to sign the first piece of paper the Penguins organization puts in front of him, even if it promises nothing better than a shot at being a frequent healthy scratch for the Wheeling Nailers.
    This entire fan base has battered person syndrome.

    I suspect so. Probably when they contacted him they invited him to camp. Just hopefully he doesn't pull at Todd Burgess there.

    I strongly doubt that the Penguins are going to go out of their way to sign the 217th overall pick immediately. Why spend the money on developing him if they can let RPI handle it. I suppose it's possible that he could be sent to whatever CHL team has his rights but it seems unlikely.

    two interesting articles from Sam Blum. Sam's clearly not on the fast track to replace Dave Anderson, but interesting nonetheless.

I'm sorry you had to experience someone that wants to just sit on her throne in the Troy building (because we know she doesn't use her throne at HFH), take all the credit for good, but pass the blame for bad; it's yet another reason why I don't want to donate to the 'tute until she's gone. Hopefully things go well for you this summer, too.
    Thanks for the kind words. My best to you and Mrs. Dudette
