    Everything I’m hearing from multiple sources is Nightingale will be announced this week as the new coach. While most in the MSU community are disappointed a big name wasn’t hired, this may turn out to be a good hire. First, there is no indication MSU was going to offer more than 350K. So any of the top names being floated around wasn’t going to happen. Second, the word is Adam has a much better reputation among his U-18 players than Cole had and that could result in an immediate surprise.
    Everyone keeps bleating on and on about the NTDP players. That's not where you're going to rebuild this program. Southern Ontario and BC are where they need to reestablish Michigan State as a place to go. A couple three kids from the U-18s are a nice bonus but you're never going to get dominant numbers from there.

    That being said, Adam has transformed the personality of the U-18s to finally inject a little grit. They're not the cake eater contact averse players of the recent past. It's a much more North American style ready player coming out, and that can only help. Let's hope he can do the same at the college level.

    Yes, I agree. Someone else would have been named by now.

    So, it's probably Nightingale.

    I'd do a cartwheel if MSU were to land Blashill. His year at Western was extremely impressive.

    Holy hell, if all MSU can get is Dave Shyiak...

    Are you sure it's not Larsen? Smiley face (but sorta serious)

    I don't ever remember MSU using Carto Flight as an air service provider before, and looking at the flight pattern this was not a passenger ferry. Highly doubtful on that alone.

    Highly doubtful that fired coaches would still have a charter flight. Could be Alan Haller himself if they had the meeting in Florida, but I would think any candidate would want to see the facilities in person.

    I've been watching Flight aware for a couple days now and there were no inbound flights from Lansing to Naples in the last 3 days, so that would suggest it wasn't Haller alone.
    If it’s someone who wants to see the facilities/campus for themselves then that would pretty much cross Pat Ferschweiler off the list! He’s quite familiar with Munn.

    There was a private plane that landed in Lansing from Naples yesterday. No outbound flight yet to tip off who was on board.

    Did Bill Muckalt sneak inside the wheel well?
