She must have been taking notes during the event, no way I could have remembered all of that without writing things down. Anyway, well done and don't be a stranger on this thread....

    Wow - you guys are making me blush! Sorry to be so late responding, but thanks so much for the high praise! And Dr. D, seeing that you were back on the boards was a big part of the reason I decided to give it a go too. Seems to me like you have always been the voice of reason here, so if you're around things can't get too far out of hand! I expect to be at Princeton next year as usual - hoping to see you and Jenny there.

    I think that his comments on the search process have to be mostly ignored because of his part in it, however I agree that it is good that he is trying to mend fences,

    One more post, and then I'll fade into the woodwork again for a while. And apologies if you've covered this somewhere earlier that I've forgotten about.

    Am I right in thinking that the Big Red Freakout and Senior Night are going to have to be the same night again next season? It could have been Saturday, February 10th, if we weren't letting Harvard mess us up yet again, but for about the umpteenth time their game is being rescheduled. That leaves February 24th, the last game of the season and therefore Senior Night, as the only home Saturday game once the students get back for the spring semester, right? I hate when that happens.

    You're right, Ralph, although he did give a lot of details on how many different people they asked about him and how far into the past they dug that, unless they simply aren't true, speak to the thoroughness of the investigations. It sounds good, anyway.

    I doubt that he said anything that is false. I think that if other schools in the future go this route in selecting hockey coaches, we will know that it was a good idea.

    Has that rumor been confirmed? (the BU part that is)

    He listed in his LinkedIn account that he expects a master's from RPI in 2018.

    It's confirmed. He was talking about it at the Banquet.

    I wonder if Jon Bendorf will be coming this fall since he is in the directory.

    It won't mean that I will root any less for the team that we put on the ice.

    I hope not ... he's not ready. In 23 USHL games he only had 5 pts. He's only played 56 games of junior hockey. He needs at least another year of Junior hockey.
