    Josh Ciocco has accepted a position as an Assistant Coach at Brown. That's according to a Tweet from @MarkDivver of the Providence Journal.

    Does Louis Mass take over recruiting? Or we bring somebody else on? Justin Johnson would be huge for the hometown folk, fresh out of the NHL & AHL would be welcoming to recruits.

    Interestingly, they've been on the down from 10-11 with 10 wins, to only 5 this past season. There GF's and GA's also follow UAA stat wise...At best it is a lateral move (assuming our program stays floating).

    If they're almost set for 17-18 or I'd assume they would be since Ciocco wouldn't likely just bail. Not like Matt or Louis both cant manage a couple of trips here and there anyway.

    Ciocco gone doesn't look good for the program.

    I don't like that idea at all. Of course, I had an extensive person to person talk with JJ a few years ago, and he was at one time boycotting all UAA games because he hated Cobb. I never understood that mindset. Why punish a team because you don't like the AD.

    Maybe Joey Crabb will end up being more than a volunteer? Can't say I blame Josh, with all the uncertainty the program faces right now. But it's still very unfortunate.

    Ciocco put together the "action plan" for "save the program".
    When he bails a few weeks later it speaks volumes about his faith the program will survive.
    Not one, nobody, nada, from Hackett on down showed up in support when Josh rolled out the "action plan". Hackett can be politically correct and SAY he supports hockey but his actions tell a completely different story.
    A very sad situation we find ourselves in.

    I just can't see the program moving forward. I think this will be the last year of hockey. Even if someone ponies up 1.9M, how about 2018, 19, 20, etc. It is not sustainable at all. Hackett knows this and will replace hockey with Soccer. I think their goal is a total Division II sports model. And that sucks.

    I'm beginning to wonder if somebody on the soccer side is lobbying quietly for it. I need to poke my head around a bit.

    On the personal front, soccer at UAA could be a benefit for me as I'd be capable of being one of the referees. But college soccer sucks rules wise and I'd rather attend hockey games.

    I think there has always been support for soccer, but as an addition to the athletics department and not as a replacement for hockey. However, now you might be right. There might be a silent lobby for it. Hackett did mention the facilities at the Dome was a good place to play games, because it takes the weather out of it. Plus, track teams already rent the facility, so no extra cost with rent.

    If there are 13 teams now at UAA, and Mens/Womens skiing, gymnastics, and hockey are eliminated that makes 9 teams left. However, if you add mens/womens soccer, that puts teams at 11, and 10 is the minimum for NCAA Division II. I almost certain that this is the route they will go with.

    lateral move to stable program. Good luck and thanks for what you did for the program.

    if UAA drops UA_ will have a tough uphill battle just to survive as now teams dangle "stipends". .....like Benjamin's on a Fenwick. UAA and UA_ don't even have a cane pole to dangle a dollar from. Players will go where the money is. can't play D-1 with a D-2 mentality.

    Better money, easier travel for recruiting, closer to home. Ciocco wanted it kept quiet that he was even contacted about the position when it first came open because he didn't want to make it seem like he was looking to abandon a sinking ship. But ultimately, he was the guy Brown picked and the offer was too good to pass up.

    Based on the proposals that are going to be made by the President of UA to the BoR, this certainly will be UAA/UAF hockey's last year. The NCAA will not combine nor grant a waiver...

    If I understood what I just heard on the news, the regents voted not to cut sports. They put the ball back in Johnson's court - at least that is how I took it.

    These are good words, but the question is this: a no to a complete cut, or a no to any cut at all? I hope that it will all be sorted out by morning.
