    Alaska Nanooks 2018-2019

    Well, it’s August so let’s get this thing going.

    Perhaps a little bit of politics to start, as voters will have the opportunity to approve a new ice plant at the Carlson Center in October.

    From KTVF11 Sports:
    A source within the University says that one of the Candidates, Mike Waddell, has dropped out of the running for the @AlaskaNanooks athletic director job. The only other word is that they are awaiting approval before making an offer.

    I went to 3 of the 4 public meet & greets. IMHO, he was heads and shoulders above the others. I believe there are only two left in the pool. Unfortunately, they need go with an interim and start the process all over again in the spring. And for god sakes streamline the hiring process. What a frigging joke.

    Who else dropped out? None of the proposed finalists really jumped out at me as a great hire. I wish they would find someone with some better connections to Alaska.

    I recall a tweet or post somewhere about one other candidate no longer being in the running, but have heard nothing official, or maybe I just wasn't paying attention. Waddell would have been a good hire. Very dynamic personality. Our previous two ADs were nice guys but as personable and dynamic as dish rags. I don't believe an Alaskan connection necessarily brings anything to the AD position.

    Hey folks, who do you play on 10/19-20? USCHO composite has you playing both Denver and UAF that weekend, Denver's schedule says they're playing you, your schedule says UAF, and WCHA's composite says UAF.

    @Denver.

    I believe UAA added a new non-conference series against someone, albeit on a different weekend.

    - UAF and UAA dropped their home & home intra-conference “non-conference” games originally scheduled for Oct 19th & 20th.

    - UAF now plays at Denver on Oct 19th & 20th. (I’m sure there is an excuse but no valid reason other than incompetence that UAF hasn’t updated their on-line schedule).

    - UAA now plays at UNO on Dec 29th & 31st (Sat & Mon).
