She had no intention or desire to provide any kind of support. The whole situation is a joke. RPI needs a new AD! Someone with new energy and enthusiasm for all programs including mens and women hockey. It’s their only D1 sport on campus start treating it like such. Not some pain in the *** you have to deal with. The history and traditions are their to grow the hockey programs. Clarkson has no problem, Cornell has no problem, union has no problem, Harvard has no problem, qpac has no problem etc… What’s missing at RPI? It’s very obvious what’s missing. Clear house get some young blood in their who’s excited and hungry to make rpi hockey a force to be reckoned with again. Instead Shirley pulls a retired guy from down the road who knows nothing about hockey as our ad. Conducts no national search to find anyone..:nope we get the dude down the road at suny Albany who says sure I’ll do it but back the brinks truck up to my house if I’m gonna do you this favor.
    Thanks for confirming ! Totally agree its time for new blood in the AD's office

    • Today is 23 June 2022. There are 100 days until RPI's next game. There are 8 days until RPI has a new president.

      This is based upon 1 October 2022 for the start of next season and 1 July 2022 for the end of @#$%^.

      • Apoogies, as it's not all RPI related, but since we're all in a holding pattern til SAJ is escorted out of Rensselaer Co., I thought I'd share this. CBA has hired Barry Melrose's son to coach their H.S. team.
        He most recently had a good run as coach of the men's and women's teams in Stowe, VT.

          • Sort of jumping the gun here,but I want to be prepared right from day1. Some of my RPI ‘gear’ e.g. sweatshirt and hat are ready for the trash heap and need replacing. Is the general public still not allowed at campus facilities? Can I go to the bookstore? To do a little preseason shopping. I have to think if you can go anywhere now without a mask (although for a few reasons I still wear mine in crowded places), that my butt will be allowed to occupy a seat in Section 6 this fall. (Or behind the bench for women’s games). I mean 100 days will be here before you know it.

              • As not everyone reads the recruit thread, I am posting this here too. Last weekend, RPI received a commitment from a goalie Carson Cherepak of the Dauphin Kings (MJHL). It was not clear from the original messages if he was for 2022 or 2023. It now appears that he is indeed for this fall https://twitter.com/HockeyCommits/st...31222239354881. That probably means that one of the three goalies whom we were expecting is either injured, left school, or isn't coming.

                Cherepak was the MVP of the recent Centennial Cup.

                  How long before we see a 22/23 roster?

                      Summer hours are weekdays 9-5 -- closed weekends. Prepare to be underwhelmed by the lack of gear that actually says "hockey" on it. They have options for online custom ordering as well.

                        Agreed. FWIW, the women's team had four goalies on the roster last year.
