    Sounds good. I'll bring the Cohibas.

    Given the fact they were F5 runner-up and made the NCAA in '08, I wouldn't count that as a terrible year - particularly given the massive losses in the previous offseason combined with Stoa's season-ending injury in the 2nd game and Okposo's mid-season departure. How many other teams could have absorbed all those losses / distractions and STILL managed to make the NCAA's?

    I know UM isn't the only one, but I have to blame something (no matter how arbitrary and irrational) for our recent woes.

    That said, I think Lucia is still a good coach. He has more than proven himself at this level. I think Hill has a lot more to do with the recent troubles than he's being given credit for.

    btw - I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but Gophers defections seem to have accelerated since the Wild arrived so I blame them.
    The NHL collective bargaining agreement has accelerated the defections for all schools but has hit the top level schools the most. I believe the current CBA has two more years left on it. It will be interesting to see what happens when it expires.

    If you can't tell the difference, that's your problem.

    Lucia's track record is better than Hakstol's, sorry to tell you. Or did you forget that he took a doormat CC team and made them relevant? In addition to winning two national championships at Minnesota, something that hadn't been done in 23 years.

    Buy a clue. Please.
    No Way Scoobs Hakstol is waaaaaaaay better he has a winning record against the Gophers and takin the Sioux farther in the playoffs the last few years so that means he is much better coach !

    So basically he must consider a $67,500 job with the Rockford IceHogs next year a better deal than playing for the gophers another season.

    {sigh}

    You do realize the quicker you sign with the NHL team the quicker you are a free agent and can get the big bucks, right?

    You know there is a thing called a signing bonus right? I'm sure his income taxes will say he made more than $67,500 gross for 2010.

    His teams have performed poorly the last few year that doesnt necessarily equate into a bad job by the coach. At what point do players have to assume some responsiblity for thier own performance ? Under your logic the Siouxs annual choke in the post season is all Hakstols fault and I dont buy that either
    We'll have to agree to disagree.

    BINGO ! Thank you !
