  • Re: BU season thread volume 3.1 cause board/priceless/tippycanoe deleted ours

    Think it has to do with the he situation then and now.

    Then it was the end of a bad stretch and things couldn’t get worse. Whereas now 5ings are trending upward and a bad step can mess it up more.

      Hynes is only signed through next year with New Jersey, so I wonder if he looked at it as being security or who knows, maybe he would try to just use it as leverage to get NJ to give him an extension sooner. either way, if he reached out and wanted to talk, and BU didn't call him, that's insane to me.

        It does sound insane... but who knows if they really didn't call him or what the inside story is.

          Does he have a family? Maybe they don't like Newark. Maybe NHL HC is too much of a time commitment, but other than less travel and more nights at sleeping at home than on the road, I think time commitment at BU is just as high. Both jobs are pretty much around the clock. But I don't know, it sounds completely bizarre to me.

            In fact that is a big red mark on an application for this job.
            Sorry, I am calling BS on this comment.

            He signed right after the NCAAs. He was starting his professional hockey career, which lasted 18 seasons as a player and then got right into coaching.
            He hasn't needed a degree to this point in anything that he has done.
            It is a formality if he needs to get one.

              Harry, please.

              He played 8gm with Albany (5rs, 3playoff). Then had the summer. When he signed he had a couple weeks left in the semester and had incompletes which could have then been finished in the months of June or July or August. Couple hours work max.

              And now he wants a job making sure 25 some odd young men take classes seriously??

              Sorry. Mookie is standing by his original statement.

              (Now if instead he wasn’t going to graduate because he DID finish those classes but was still short because he didn’t carry a full load during a semester or two mookie will perhaps revisit your point)

                In the past this "rule" on having a degree has always been unclear to me. So it's not an NCAA matter? Just a school by school policy?

                    Assuming its a school policy, and I kinda like it. Sort of the quaint old notion that your time in school ought be spent getting a degree even if you do play hockey.

                      Saying that BU "picks the cream off the top" is a wee bit of an oversimplification.
                      ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

                        Wouldn't it be something if a kid skipped a voluntary workout to study for finals and the BU coach was like '*** you skipped a workout, you're outta here!'

                          Andy Murray, head coach of Western Michigan, doesn’t have a degree, so it’s not an NCAA rule.

                            If John Hynes was so interested in the job why didn’t he formally apply for it? Instead it was reported he “reached out” to BU to inquire about the job, one we have been told many others formally applied for. There certainly seems to be much more to this story. That said, I don’t see why Hynes should automatically have been given the job even if he did apply.

                              Suggesting that they don't is then what??
                              Every year all those familiar names (where have I heard Carpenter, Amonte and Tkachuk) and how many NHL draft picks on this last years roster?
                              I'd say that is one mighty big head start ...

                                Andy Murray has a BA from Brandon University in Manitoba (and an honorary doctorate, not that that matters)
