    If he commits to Clarkson and decommits, he will have the Tri-State League Trifecta.

    You can draw your own conclusions from this.

Hopefully everyone's through the five stages by the end of September so we can focus on the two words/abbreviations that unite us all: RPI Hockey.
    One of your best postings I can recall! But at my age I forget a lot of things.

    Thanks. I've been slipping a bit, so I had to bring back some classic Flaggy.
    It was an honor to present your colors, RPI. Let's Go 'TUTE!

    My fear is that Smith is the only one who would take the job.

    They should have paid RPI as we gave them a chance to claim hockey placement experience too..............

    Would this be similar to what RPI will be paying Smith?

    I don't believe that at all. We are not the easiest school to coach for (hell, I could recruit for BC, BU or Minnesota), but we are far from the worst. There were times when Union, UM-L and MTU were considered dead-end jobs. They were all in this years' tournament.

    Can't find SA on RPI's tax return, but Coach Bennett made $196,817 + an additional $54,004 for the FY ending 6/30/15.

    Casey Jones made $243,426 + $45,319 for the same period.

    That'd be something if we paid bonuses like that.

    Real key question is what happened to make that change in those three schools?
