    Do you believe the committee was totally ignored? How would Oates know? Yes academics are rigorous but there are no other schools with rigorous academics?

    The press should be on the AD asking questions there are plenty of them.

    Personally I think the problem is academics combined with the limited choice of major. (Not that I feel that RPI should expand the choice of majors.)

    Granted it is somewhat limited BUT options can be Building Science, Business & Management, Cognitive Science, Communications, Philosophy, Economics, Design Innovation and Society, Electronic Arts, etc. No basket weaving or general studies, but again there are other rigorous academic dwellings and there are intelligent, well skilled hockey players out there. What I see more is an issue from the top down.

    Today is 27 July 2017. There are 65 days until RPI's next game.


    This is based upon 30 September 2017 for the start of next season.


    No complete roster yet.

    It'd be tough to find someone with great knowledge of the present day 'tute that didn't believe the top down issue, unless they were part of "the top". Unfortunately, unless SAJ croaks, it ain't changing anytime soon. And even then, there's enough power in the board to make sure the poor leadership continues. I do hope we can see some improvements under Smith, especially surrounding injuries, team cohesion, and systemic evolution. That's all we can really ask for at this point.
    It was an honor to present your colors, RPI. Let's Go 'TUTE!
