    What might have been three years ago with those 10 one-goal losses and half dozen ties; sigh.

    My apologies if this was already mentioned somewhere in this thread....
    Not only that, but it's a big loss for us with the training....will they replace him? Puts the rest the 'associate coach' idea too...

    Dan has said this before but the one thing I'd like to see UNH adopt is an absolute, no holds barred, winning ATTITUDE. Let go of the 'excuses' as to why they didn't win this, didn't win that. Whether you are playing on Merrimacks ice or the big bad team from Lowell you play to WIN. Now that that's off my mind, Snively65 what brings this up? There's a lot of 'might have beens' (too many) that haunt this fan base isn't there, but also, lots of great wins too. Looking forward to more of the latter...

    Ps...Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!!!

    Pss...Anxiously awaiting the 7th hole. Lots of people have played through at this point, and, with today being the final round of the US Open, I think it's time.

    Re: UNH Wildcats 2017 Off-season: The Clash Question

    Fun with Souza, Dick & Stu - Offseason Edition - Part VII

    Three men move to Tee Seven
    Spot will wait up at the green for them
    Spot is a mess too and needs a rest
    But it was worth the wait
    Puff was put on the same cart as the dead bear
    Spot feels bad for the dead bear
    Not so much for Puff though

    Beep beep is the sound at the tee
    Thank god the beer cart is here!!
    The men's thirst will be cured!!!!
    Dick turns to Souza
    "You will pay this time, right?"
    Stu chirps from the back
    "I got this one. My turn!"
    Dick is . Souza is and then he is

    There is a single pom pom on the front of the cart
    It is a deep UNH Blue hue
    "Hi gents! The beer cart is here! What can I help you with?"
    "A case of Tab for my friends here" chirps Stu
    "Yes, a case of Schlitz Tab" groans the old man
    "Or a case of Duff's Tab" offers the young man
    "So, a case of any old swill Tab will do then?"
    "Yes, only the best for my pals" chirps Stu, who adds a nice tip

    Stu will hit first this time
    Short par 4 with no frills
    Stu will grip and rip a 3 wood
    Stu pulls it to the right
    Dick hits next
    Dick hits it straight
    Good shot Dick!!
    Souza hits last
    Souza hits it high but short
    Pop up - drats!!
    But it is a short hole, so he can still reach it

    The beer cart drives with the men to the next shots
    "Why is there just one pom pom on the cart, Jules?"
    "If there is just one pom pom, isn't it just a ... pom?"
    "Stu you ask a good one ... "
    "Shut up you two. Souza is set to hit" grumps Dick
    Souza hits a wood true, and lands it near the green
    Good shot Souza!
    Jules and Stu drive to Stu's ball on the right
    Souza drives Dick to his ball
    They each pop open a can of Busch Tab
    "There is one pom pom, so it is a pom I guess" says Jules
    "Why do you put up with those guys?"
    "The check is good and the drive is short" says Stu
    Stu hits an eight iron stiff to the pin, ten feet past

    Dick is set up with a nine iron
    Dick shanks it, and the ball flies into the sand
    Spot waits for the men near the sand
    Spot kicks Dick's ball back on to the green
    "Good shot Dick!!" chirps Stu
    Jules is and drives off to the sixth tee
    "Good luck with the rest of your game Stu
    Your pals seem not to know how to tip"

    At the green, Souza is in scramble mode
    Unlike Stu, he is not used to this
    His chip from the fringe comes up way short
    "You can pick that up, Souza" chirps Stu
    He has now beat Dick to the punch
    Dick's ball is 30 feet from the pin
    But it is not in the sand
    Thanks of course to Spot
    Dick hits the putt too hard, it goes 10 feet past
    "Pick that up Dick", says Souza
    Stu has a 10 foot putt left too for a bird
    Stu will again wait to no avail
    Stu rims the putt for bird out, and taps in for par

    As the men move to Tee Eight, Fish and Game wait for them
    No, they wait only for Spot
    "Your pal Puff got hurt a lot"
    "Seems to be from more than a rake oops"
    "Why do you look at me then?"
    "You have blood on your hands Spot"
    "We think you beat the bag out of Puff"
    "I tried to save Puff from the bear you shot, you dumb butt"
    "So you say the bear mauled Puff, and you tried to save him?"
    "Yes, that is the truth. Go ask the bear"
    "But the bear is dead"
    "That's too bad. Is Puff OK?"
    "Yes, he will make it through"
    "That's too bad too"

    Fish and Game are but they have hit a dead end. Spot and the men move on.

    The rain starts to fall more. Stu takes a sip of Busch Tab and throws it up on the spot.


    The score after seven holes (Par 27) stands:

    Dick -1 Souza E *Stu E

    Dick still has the lead
    Stu still has honors
    No one has thirst any more
    Dick stays on the cart with his dry bag
    Dick wants to stay dry, so to speak
    Now Spot will loop for Stu in the rain

    Does anyone know if Buckley is staying on in some capacity at UNH. i believe incoming goalie Mike Robinson is a long term student of Buckley.

    He's no longer playing the round of golf with Dick, Souza, Stu, and looper Spot, is he? Well, there is your answer. But, more seriously, other articles refer to him as "ex-UNH goalie coach," FWIIW. On his GDSGoalies.com website, Brian Foster and Jamie Regan ("played in 9 games at UNH, mostly during his senior year") are mentioned, along with CDS, of course. Oh, my, so many entanglements here, both on and off the golf course.

    Man, this is the perfect time to go get Mike Ayers from BC. Ayers has the youth, recruiting experience and more importantly works with the goaltenders and of course is a UNH alum. Not sure what we could do to entice him away from BC but it would be a great coup if we can land him for the UNH coaching staff of the future. The Buckley loss hurts - he is a top goaltending instructor and was probably a factor in getting goalie commits to come here. Top goalies will want a top tier goaltending coach.

    Possible, but why would Ayers want to leave a very successful program that allows him to burnish his resume with success, in order to que up behind a 39 year old HC with no chance for advancement?

    Associate Head Coach would be an advancement. Right now Ayers is stuck behind York who isnt retiring anytime soon, then heir apparent in Greg Brown....maybe Ayers wants to come back to his alma mater and rebuild a program rather than be on cruise control at BC. I am reaching here!

    I would love to see Mike Ayers here! But I wonder if he would be taking a pay cut to leave BC? This is going to be very interesting and this selection (Asst. HC) is HUGE. UNH hopefully will get it right and land someone who fits the bill. I said hopefully....

    Keep in mind Ayers is from Hingham so he can live there as an assistant coach at BC where he'd have to move if he went to UNH.

    Well doesn't everyone want to live in the beautiful seacoast of NH?? But when you think of it I'd suspect he's going to work toward an eventual HC position....and that isn't going to be happening anytime soon in Durham.

    Still...he brings alot to the table and would fit the bill as a D/Goalie coach. Not to mention we'd continue the alumni coaching trio!!

    Greg, I know you're out there...what do you think of this possibility?

    Alumni, young and hungry, D/Goalie Coach, excellent recruiter....worth at least making a call on. You never know!

    Or, as I have suggested elsewhere, maybe poach Cap Raider from Norwich and Mike McShane? Now there are some names for Dick, Souza, Stu, and Spot's golf round. Robby Ftorek: "How many do you want?" Cap: "How about two?"

    Do you still have to walk the course or do walkers count?

    BC Mike may not want to pay state tax any more
    Worth the call, I'd say - worst case, he says no
    If so, BC Mike may want to wait for UNH Mike to fail?
    Play the long game, right? You never know ...

    How much did Puff pay Buck to Skype coach?
    Not sure BC Mike would take short dough to leave the Hill
    Real dough frees up when Dick leaves next year
    Just sayin' ...

    So you are anticipating MS to fail? No question he has a lot of work to do. I know you've always said it's gonna 'be the guy after the guy' kind of thing. Don't wanna start something but Jeeze give the guy a chance! And maybe there's other UNH alums out there worth considering who have had coaching experience...I mean sure I'm intrigued by the possibility of having Ayers return to Durham but I dunno...Whoever it is has to be able to coach the D and recruit (and not necessarily in that order!)

    Like I said it's going to be interesting.

    Kevin Dean - UNHs David Quinn....?

    I'd love to see Ayers come back - he's more experienced than others already, with time at SCSU, the USNTDP and now BC. No doubt he'd be a benefit to UNH goalies and - I think - a big help to recruiting, but...

    ...he coaches forwards at BC. At least that's who he's managing during games. I don't know that he's ever coached defensemen.

    Good point; Cap may be getting long in the tooth, although his Norwich goalies are winning championships. So, how about instead we poach Jamie Regan from Mike Buck's GDSGoalies.com to coach up (via Skype?) Tirone, Clark, and Robinson?
