      I'm very glad I graduated before those things came along. They might be the most annoying sound ever, its exactly like the sound that Lloyd in dumb and dumber makes as "the most annoying sound in the world".

      [/Sarcasm]
      Just like the 0-0 gem between tech and duluth in about '05, that was the worst hockey game I've ever witnessed.

      I suggest they use voices, anything but those soccer horns.

        Sshh...Quiet; what's that I hear? Oh, it's the JSR echo syndrome going on. But honestly, complaining about Russell was fit for prior years. The guy probably works harder and spends more time at his job than anyone here and is doing the best he can. Unfortunately in his profession, hard work is not what you're rewarded for, it's all about results. At this point if you're fed up with the program, take it out on the AD and administration for allowing it to get to this point. A new coach should have been selected following either of the last two years. The likely reason it wasn't - not likely an AD is going to say I screwed up and gave an extension and now we have to pay off two years ($230K) of a contract I shouldn't have given. Obviously more worried about her job than the hockey program. Blais was hired for $250K; shoulda, coulda, woulda.

                  It's great how he still thinks Blais would've come to Houghton if the last search committee had just offered him a lot of money.

                  "Name" coaches do not want the Tech job. End of story.

                    Be that as it may. My alumni friends all think that Tech needs to hire a big name/ expensive coach. ( IF, they decide to go that route) Whether that is feasible or not remains to be seen.
                    Personally it would be better to delay this discussion until march.

                      When does Russel's contract expire? If it expires in two or three years from now what is the buy out. I highly doubt they would fire a coach midseason. That is something not done in the college hockey ranks.

                        Tech did it in I believe 2000, firing Tim Watters after he started something like 1-7-0.

                          He was an exceptional case. Anyone who was a fan at that time will tell you he should've been fired in March, following the 4-34-0 season.

                          If Russell goes, it won't be until this season is over. Last I heard, this is the final year of his contract, and there has been no rumor of an extension in the works.

                          The people who think Tech needs an expensive/"name" coach should start thinking about the coaches who would be on their short list. They'll realize pretty quickly that there is no way anyone on their list will want the Tech job. Money is only part of the equation.

                            No, I think Tech pays them $150K and the enrichment fund pays them $100-$150K for a total of $250-$300K; with that kind of money offered, they'd have alot of notable coaches interested. Especially given the job security at MTU.

                              And also a no brainer that Russell should have been gone after his 5-30 season last year.
