    Way to poke 'em ATW! I'm working on a Russia-Ukraine/UNH - dictator tie in, hoping to shift and further amp the current events unrelated to hockey discussion.

    Dean Dean is charged with educating the student population, and managing personnel within a budget. All staff and most of the students are adults, so they each have the right and responsibility to take care for their own safety. We sent our kids to UNH a decade ago (give or take), and it was the furthest thought from our minds that we were sending them over to be babysat as if they were infants. College is supposed to be where they learn to be adults, not extended playtime for teenagers. Also, if one of our kids were to catch the Wuhan Flu while they were students, I can assure you we wouldn't be demanding CSI-Oyster River to do contact tracing to hunt down the suspect(s) - as if it were even possible (and it isn't).

    Oh, and BTW none of this was a "new experience" for folks like myself and Norbert (and e.cat and many others) who were around when the last pandemic blew out of the Orient Virus Incubator that was/is China, infecting the rest of the world. Funny thing is, back then, adults had fought a couple of wars as young adults, and didn't wet their pants at the possibility of their kids coming down with the flu. Then as now, risk resided in the elderly and infirm. Look it up and learn, it's all there.

    So if you want to live your life according to "when in doubt, take precautions", knock yourself out, it's your right to live the way you want. However, it's not your right, much less the Feds, state nor UNeffingH's right to impose that standard on me, nor anyone else for that matter.

    Sorry, it's nothing personal, but you were just the poor sap who hit me with the last "safety first" lecture after tolerating two full years of collective group cowardice. Rest assured, all is good between me and Dean Dean, so long as he hires the right new AD, and the aforementioned new AD fixes UNH Hockey as Job One. Not asking for much, just extreme competence. :-)
    Should have read and just pointed up to this. Maybe from now on I’m just going to fill in write-in spots on all ballots for Chuck.

    Unless there is some uncomfortableness with any decisions going forward it will be more of the same.

    Dean was hired to be a fundraiser. Which is ironic as he’s blowing through money with his rules

    Norbert, why the Dictator Dean label? The guy is charged with protecting 10-12,000 people and try to keep them safe. Trust we all know that if a couple of students or employees became critically ill or worst, it would be him that was called to answer for this. It was a new experience, still appears to be, so when in doubt take precautions.
    Also will agree that the mask wearing did fall of a bit over time. But in my opinion it picked back up recently. As we got a couple of nice size crowds the newbies appeared to be more compliment. Why make the work study kids crazy trying to do their jobs.
    When someone in charge of that many people unilaterally makes decisions, it’s a dictatorship. All the testing and expense, no Trustee buy-in. You live in NE or NY and get Covid, home you go even though you have a housing contract.

    The population at UNH isn’t the demographic getting sick or dying.

    I’ve been to a Bruins game after Mayor Wu went nuts with rules and no one followed it. Police and employees didn’t care. Just left a Florida Panthers game and guarantee that the 15000 people there who were not wearing masks will be ok. But back to Durham and it’s mask up

    As more evidence of the dictatorship at the Lowell game the people in the President suite were not wearing masks. So is it everyone wears a mask except players and his guests?

    Hope I am wrong and you are correct.

    With the governor and state suggesting the end of indoor masks, does Dictator Dean follow suit or does he keep the minimally followed policy at the Whit?

    Another uninspired hire delivering the U exactly what they should have expected based on resume & further evidence why even a delayed decision on Men's Hockey is preferable to giving Scarano a chance to make another personnel decision before his retirement...

    Agree it will be interesting to see how it all plays out with the remaining three games. I see a 1-1-1 in the cards!

    I only went through UNH's, after that 2019 comeback against Yale I was curious to see our number of 4 goal comebacks vs 4 goal blown leads.
    It derived from a self-deprecating "oh, this is what it feels like to be on the other end of a blown 4 goal lead" after having watched us throw so many away the previous 15 years-20 years.
