    Going to Minnesota is cool, totally get it, but do both!
    I can see parallels with a coach in another sport, Michigan's softball team. I know Jen Brundage the assistant coach who recruits very well for them on the west coast. Jen led UCLA to national championships leading the team in hitting and inducted into their Hall of Fame, won Olympic gold medals for Team USA. She's a legend in California. I see the exact same thing with the Muzzinator being as well known in Minnesota. No wonder she's looking to drink deeper from that well, what girl there wouldn't be star struck by her?

      Yes, and it’s another reflection on the resources Ohio State is supplying the team. Completely understand why OSU is doing camps in Minnesota. They are trying to win national championships.

      I am just very interested in the development side of the girls game right now, hence my tongue in cheek comments about coming to Cleveland. Curious what the next big boom, if any, in the sport will be. Sophie Jaques was just named to the Accelerate initiative where she and each of numerous other game changers werr awarded $25k to grow girls hockey. Curious to see what she chooses to do.

        That's why I'm going to satisfy my curiosity by going to watch the USA Development Camps this summer at Steve Cady Arena in Oxford Ohio Miami's home ice.

          Face it, you're sweating bullets about the Muzzinator! LOL!
          Sorry to burst your bubble. Arizona State had one in 2018 when it was starting the program.

            My bubble isn't burst, my comment on the subject had a question mark making it a question, not a statement of fact.

              • Sad news in Buckeye Nation. Longtime PA Announcer Bob Kennedy has passed away:

                https://www.dispatch.com/story/sport...s/70168312007/

                Bob was best known as the PA Announcer for Buckeye Football. But he also served in the same capacity for Buckeye Women's Hockey -- for several of the Jackie Barto years. In more recent seasons, he would happily make a cameo appearance for us when a current announcer had a conflict. (usually involving another Ohio State sport)

                That Bob had a great set of pipes is beyond question. Although he didn't grow up with our sport, he eagerly absorbed hockey information and quickly became proficient. He did our program proud.

                Beyond his PA gigs, Kennedy did a tour of duty as a helicopter traffic reporter. Somehow the traffic jam didn't seem so bad when you had Bob's comforting voice on the radio, explaining what was going on.

                Please take a moment to remember Bob, and keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

                • Kiara Zanon, former Penn State forward, went into the portal today and signed with the Buckeyes. I’m shocked! I figured OSU was done with the portal. After losing 13 players, OSU was sitting at 21 so an opening was there. A great addition. Go Bucks!

                          Well, taking into account your comment in the PSU thread about how quickly it happened, how it must have been "pre-arranged": I don't know for certain, but I'd be willing to bet that "pre-arranging" for someone at another school to enter the portal so you can snap them up would is pretty likely some sort of rules violation. if the "pre-arranging" is done by someone in an official capacity at the 'new' school. Of course student-athletes can certainly talk to one another - friends from clubs or national teams/camps, etc. And the official process (as described on podcasts by a couple of Wisconsin volleyball transfers) doesn't *have* to take long; a player's name hits the portal, coaches etal get a text message within a matter of minutes, make a phone call, make an offer, offer accepted. A matter of hours would be possible.

                          But if I were the PSU coach and was blind-sided by it all, I'd sure be interested in hearing the details... "genius" may not be the exact right word...

                          Whatever. Drop the puck.

                          ----------------------

                          Yeah, contact prior to the player entering the portal would be a violation of NCAA rules.

                            Doubt if anything was pre-arranged, but keep telling yourself Coach Muzerall broke rules if it makes you feel better. It's more likely that the player saw that Ohio State had a bunch of openings and wanted to come play for a National Title contender for her last season or two. I like that you and the others feel so threatened by Ohio State now that you have to come over here to our thread and smear our program. It's like you think if you bad-mouth our program enough, you might flip one of our recruits to your school or something. LOL, good luck with that. You can say what you want about Coach Muzerall, but when it comes to recruiting, no one outworks her. Based on your point of view, should we have investigated when Clarkson poached our goaltenders? Sydney Morrow was only in the transfer portal for a matter of days before she committed to Colgate. Maybe the Muzzinator should get that investigated to see if Colgate tampered, huh? LOL, don't get all bent as I am not serious about the last couple statements. I don't really believe there were any rules violated when our goaltenders went to Clarkson, or when two of our kids who entered the transfer portal landed at other schools within a matter of days. I don't think our coach is violating rules either, regardless of speculation from rival fans or rival coaches.

                              We had players enter the transfer portal and within days, were committed to other schools. Guess those players were poached from us, too, right? Funny how all's fair when our players enter the transfer portal and get snatched up, but when we do it, we "poached" them.

                                Show me where after the season is over there's a rules violation if the player initiated the contact? Are you really in the dark that many players going into the portal don't have it pre-arranged with their new team?
                                And if you don't think "genius" is the right word what word would you use or would you be in trouble with the forum moderators or have the guts to go there?
                                For those unhappy with the stellar success of our coach's recruiting just wait until after next season when YOUR top talent announce they're now Buckeyes! LOL!!
