    Don't believe everything you read.

    Agreed. If she wants to coach D1 hockey next year her only options might be RPI or Union. Definitely high time for a change there. Mankato should be looking to make a change too in my opinion. It would be fun to see her stay in the WCHA. If she really doesn't care about her salary, how fun would it be to see her take over a D3 program?!

    Do you think that another school would want her?

    One would think Burke is likely to be on his way out, with the team set to miss the playoffs two years in a row for the first time since making the jump to D-I. I have no idea what the women's coaching landscape looks like and what is available to replace him. I suppose all of this will be up to the new AD when he/she is eventually named. Like I said, I'm not done with this season yet and I hope the team and staff feel the same way. We'll see.

    I've got it right here ready and waiting for you all nice and clean and warm. It'll feel good and comforting when you wrap yourself up in it to soothe you when you finally give in to the reality that it's over. It's been over for a long time now.
    Can we PLEASE think about getting a new coach???? These girls are looking worse; this coach cannot adapt as other teams do. Other teams improve as the season goes on, but RPI does not (evidence last year's 0-9-1 collapse losing to all but Union of the bottom teams and this year's total debacle). Even Union seems to be playing better this year! This is D1 hockey, not everyone participates hockey! What competitive team plays everyone?? Teams usually shorten the bench, not rotate 7D! #17 plays like a forward and is very (-) in stats cause she's not playing D, move her to forward! You'll have 8D next year based on graduation and incoming recruits; going to play 8D next year?!! Yes, you have to keep the puck out of your own net, but you have to score too!! That seems to be as big an issue yet no one is discussing that! Cornell announcer made it pretty clear (having said it about three times!), RPI is dead LAST in PP and PK NATIONALLY!!!!! Change should've happened at the end of last season. Coaches need to be held accountable. Let's change it up and see what we can do going forward.

    Us losing two points we needed to the worst possible team to lose them to, along with Yale earning two points against a team they really shouldn't have puts us in a major bind. If we want to have a prayer of making the second season, we need to steal some points this weekend. Luckily, we're at home and Clarkson and SLU aren't exactly bulletproof. It'll be tough, but I'm not ready to throw in the towel just yet.

    RPI KRACH (RRWP): 20.93 (.2253)

    MCTs (Mean/Median/Mode/Range):
    Points - 10.34 / 10 / 11 / 7 - 19
    Rank - 9.99 / 10 / 10 / 7 - 12
    Playoffs - 0.1%
    Most likely opponent - Quinnipiac (<0.05%)

    Conference rankings:
    1. Quinnipiac
    2. Harvard
    3. Cornell
    4. SLU
      —————
    5. Clarkson
    6. Princeton
    7. Dartmouth
    8. Yale
      —————
      —————
    9. Colgate
    10. RPI
    11. Union
    12. Brown

    This game is not going the way we need it to.

    EDIT: Poop. Well, we can beat Cornell and make this work.

    EDIT 2: And Yale beat Clarkson. Potentially disastrous night for us.

    See post 150. Her grandfather, Harry, was the source of the character. He was on the BSU roster in 67-68 but did not get into any games according to a BSU media guide that I found on line..

    I wonder if she or men's recruit Alex Rodriguez will get more ribbing. I suppose an important part is whether The Mighty Ducks is still watched, but it probably is since I guess that you are only six or seven years older than she is, and you have heard about it and probably seen it.


    Edit: And then there will be Meirs Moore whose father, Skeeter, played in the semifinal NCAA game vs. RPI in 1985.
