    Re: RPI 2017 Off-Season (Part II): Mr. Smith Goes to Troy

    How about on June 1st we let go of the past and start a conversation about the upcoming season and what we expect from the new coach.
    From where I sit, it looks like we have a decent defense and a good goaltender. Big questions on offense, but with big potential from a couple of forwards.
    I think that a .500 season would be acceptable if the team gives it 100% every game.
    I am excited to see what Smith will bring to this team.

    Thank you Doc. Whatever "Engineer Way" that existed in terms of a successful program was snuffed out by Appert. Let's hope Coach Smith puts focus on substance and results instead of style & marketing.

    Oh we heard that plenty of times as well, even when it was clear we played for about 25 minutes of the game. My expectations for our team are exactly the same regardless of who is behind the bench: A 65-minute effort by every single person placing the RPI jersey upon him (or her; would like to see the same from the women's team as well) on each scheduled afternoon or evening. We might end up with a win, a loss, or a tie. If we play hungry for a victory every single second, it doesn't matter what the scoreboard says.

    Lose one job and land a better one. Sounds like a win for Coach Appert and the "Engineer way"...which should now be called the "American way".
