    The new AD will be crucial. Unfortunately, a lot of the obvious candidates were scooped up last offseason (Barr, Keefe, Mayotte), so he or she will have to dig a bit more. That is why I don't necessarily want the new AD to make a quick decision in May/June. Yes, the odds are you won't make as bad a mistake, but you also will have better options/more knowledge next year.

    I quoted Greg A from 2015, but the post that prompted the whole change was (I think from Bomberhockey) "Be careful what you wish for." How prescient. Getting a change is only half of the issue. Committing to the right one going forward is the other half. Let's not rush it.

      • Shambles. What a complete and utter shambles.

        If there is a shot at Eric Lang (AIC) the new AD needs to make it happen ASAP.

        Joe Dumais (assistant at Quinnipiac) might be another option. Both are alums at their current jobs.

        • Lang has a nice niche for an AHA program: older 20 year old Eastern Europeans. That's not the model I think UNH should be following.

              Lol had to watch this directly on You Tube. Thing is...haven't we had enough Italian influence where UNH hockey decision making is concerned (and I'm Italian)...

                Lombardi was (is) the real thing, 'Ref. There's no comparison to what he pushed himself to accomplish, and what BS+, MS7 and Umile managed to accomplish, combined. Umile is the only one who even really tried, and at some point after 2003, he pretty much broke down, lost his self-belief, and started to mail it in. Lombardi never lost the fighting spirit until the moment he literally expired.

                  • I'm afraid the next person to occupy to occupy the corner office in the Field House will probably be the antithesis of Vince Lombardi in many ways. (Which is why I say be careful what you wish for.)

                    The phrase When Pride Still Mattered could describe the UNH hockey program circa two decades ago.

                      Ironically, the only things Lombardi missed on were (1) failing to listen to doctors earlier - despite his admonition in the linked video; and (2) displaying a misplaced streak of loyalty in hiring his own HC replacement, who had been a long-time assistant, and in no way shared the same dynamic personality as VTL. He was his own harshest critic, and did tend to learn from mistakes, but unfortunately his biggest mistake (1, above) was one that proved fatally irreversible.

                      He and my granddad are atop the list of people who've passed who I'd love to spend an hour with.

                        • I understand your frustrations and contemplating giving up season tickets but you don't know how lucky you are. I would give up my OU Sooner football tickets in a heartbeat for any HE school season hockey tickets. I was fortunate enough to be stationed at Ft Devens for 3 seasons(2016-18) of hockey. Love the game! We picked UML to follow and had season tickets(I had known about Norm Bazin at Colorado College when we were stationed in Colorado), we were in hockey heaven,,,,now we are in a hockey desert in Oklahoma.

                          • Lots of great points being made. Delta Bravo your remarks concerning the communication is so spot on! Like everything, they have let everything slide. I’m honestly surprised that they still throw the fish. Although that is now orchestrated by the facilities folks.
                            I can’t imagine that a new AD will see replacing the hockey coach as the number one priority. I have not received a thing about the potential rink modification yet they say it will start immediately following the season. My seat will see an incredible site line modification, why would I want to renew without knowing my options.

                              That is a really good point ATW...and perhaps you and others who wonder/worry about this should inquire. Obviously, they have the 'plan' and know what it's going to look like. I think it's a very fair question that should be answered. Maybe I don't remember but thinking it was early to be asking for renewals?? Anyway, please let us know if you do ask about this and what kind of answer you get. I'm doubting the ticket people handling the orders would have an answer, but the AD certainly does and should be forthright regarding it....right?

                              • FYI Ref, I did ask the students at the table last night. They had not thought of that nor been advised. No harm no foul. I’ll give it a week or so and try going up the latter. Film at 11:00!
