    Nice. Also, Basketball went 2-0 against the B1G regular season champion and won the B1G Tournament.

    then you have not been following this program that long. It hasn't been great for about a decade outside of Shawn Hunwick.

    No. They're in line behind the '93-94, '95-96 and '96-97 teams, at least.

    Not sure what you mean. This was a historically bad michigan team. Do you think they will be worse next year?

    Hmm. Well i have to admit as a Tech grad and engineering manager, that the UM engineers on my team are really not too bad at all. They require a little more hand holding than my Huskies (and Badger) but they do ok.

    Brian Wiseman and Billy Powers are candidates according to John U. Bacon.

    No thanks. If they were the answer, things wouldn't have gone downhill the moment Mel left.

    Not knowing much about your non-Pearson options, what alumni coaches are out there for you guys to look into?

    I know Mike Knuble, Bill Muckalt, and John Madden are coaching to varying extents, with Muckalt and Madden having HC experience.

    That's a longer list of possible alumni than any I've seen. Muckalt seems to have some advantage over Knuble or Madden, seems like.

    Only if you look at W-L's.

    People keep downplaying the idea of all the guys in the NHL that have played at Yost in the last 5 years. Other than the problem that they could not get it done here, they were clearly some great talent. Again, 5 players in the NHL as the season ended could have still been on this team. This isn't an issue that should be overlooked, IMHO.

    If Red really had a fault- it was how to deal with the very talented players he had. 2007's team was had a LOT of talent on them, but it was 2008's team with huge departures that made it to the frozen four. And Hunwick was a walk on.

    Or Corsi stats. There has been pretty dramatic decline over the past decade in offensive efficiency with just last year as an outlier.

    I agree there is talent here. Where I disagree, is how well that talent is being developed. I also believe a younger and more energetic coach will relate to players better and keep them more in-tow; reducing both off-the-ice issues (which have been increasing over the past few seasons) and recruiting his current roster to return to complete their committments to the program. Red has done a pretty **** poor job of convincing his more talented athletes to remain in the program. There have also been a decrease in development over the years where some players have actually gotten worst in their development as athletes. Freshmen should not regularly leading in points and goals.

    So by disagreeing, you are agreeing with my point that Red's major fault was how to deal with talent.

    Thing is- we knew that a LONG time ago. Like with TJ Hensick, and how he and Jack Johnson split up the team back in '06-07.

    Or before that- how to keep Al Montoya interested in the net.

    None of this is new, but prior teams were able to better deal with it.

    Big "If".

    His name was thrown around the Baseless Rumor Mill during the Wisconsin vacancy last year as well.

    Mel Pearson is a terrible ice hockey coach and should by no means be considered by Michigan. Plus he's old as dirt and struggles with the English language.
    Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.

    Wasn't Mel a part of the staff for each of those examples?

    is Pearson the consensus pick of Michigan fans? He might be a great coach but he's pushing 60. I would think Michigan should be able to attract a lot of younger hot shot coaches.
