    Workman spent last season as an assistant coach at Bemidji State, responsible for coaching the goalies and all of the coaching video preparation and breakdown. St. Olaf will be playing their first full season in their new rink, which opened midway through last season. They also hired a new women's coach this offseason in Tracy Johnson who has much more experience than what I saw in this article about Workman...
    What the heck is going in the AD's office at St. Olaf that they have a 3 month job search and hire an INTERIM head coach a month before the season starts? Is it so terrible a job that they couldn't get more qualified applicants?

    So he did. I forgot that. Thanks.

    IIRC (and that's a crap-shoot on my best day) both Educate and Ammirato were lowly D-1 cast-offs who became All-American D-3 players at Utica.

    I certainly won't complain if that happens again.

Finished second in league that year in scoring. Was told by some RPI alum's that he wasnt used as the prototypical power forward. Hope for UC he pans out. Could put up big numbers if given the right opportunity.

    Actually, I wasn't paying attention, so thank you for the heads-up.

    Ott's numbers at RPI weren't much, but RPI has been very bad for years now. Could be that he had no help..? (Being as positive as possible. )

    Still, I've seen some D-1 transfers that had no stats there and yet tore-up D-3. Hope Ott is one of them, 'cause UC graduated a large % of it's scoring yet again.

    A 1 1/2 round robin might be better. 5 opponents once, 5 twice.
