It's good! People are talking about UAA.

I'd probably go for Corbett, too. He has had D-1 success at a school that is severely hamstrung as far as recruiting goes. Maybe he can do the same in Anchorage.

Looks like the best fit to me.

I figured Cobb would just name it after himself.An excerpt from this .... (http://uaafan.blogspot.com/2007/07/my-last-blog-post.html)

"I’ll see you all next season at the brand new Steve Cobb Memorial Arena and I’ll be hoping (along with 18,000 of you guys) that Coach Glencross can bring what will be another very young team to it’s best potential. My old *** will be right there at center-ice (my new season tickets came in the mail today!).
Cheers,

Donald
April 9th, 2036"

Chancellor Case weighs in ... (http://www.adn.com/2013/04/25/2879738/uaa-chancellor-defends-athletic.html)


"I have confidence in Steve Cobb,'' Case said. "What doesn't resonate as well with some hockey people is we're a Division II school and our Division II sports are in the top four percent in the nation.

"That's something I don't take lightly. That says a lot. I was talking to (Great Northwest Athletic Conference commissioner) Dave Haglund recently, and he told me it was OK to share this: In his experience, Steve is probably the best athletic director in the conference.

"That's not compelling to our hockey fans, maybe, but it is to me.''

Still, Case said, he understands hockey, despite faltering attendance, carries a much higher profile than the school's Division II sports.

"I do recognize hockey has a special role,'' he said. "It's part of the culture in Alaska.''

"This is the same way we've hired our other coaches,'' Case said. "We've used robust public forums like we are now, and we've reached out to alumni and the community.''

Case said he has received numerous emails and phone calls critical of Cobb and the process for hiring a new coach, and that he has answered many. He said he has scheduled meetings next week with some former Seawolves hockey players.

"We are trying, and we are listening, and we'll see how things develop,'' Case said. "We've got a lot of positive support for Steve too, and some negative, the majority from the hockey community. We're reaching out, we're hoping people with concerns will continue to attend the forums.''

Case said he believes UAA's administration and its hockey community share a common goal of elevating a moribund hockey program.

"I think we (all) want a vibrant Seawolf hockey program,'' Case said. "We want to be successful, we want a winning team, we want to pack Sullivan Arena.

"How do we get there? The first way is to hire a great coach.''

So ...

Dang, that's a big loss. But in the light of all that is happening I can't say I blame him. I think better days are ahead for UAA though.

Edit: Where are you seeing that? It's not on Heisenberg's website yet:

Any of you have an inkling re: which candidate interviewed best? Haven't heard a thing down here yet.
There was some discussion over on the "UAA Seawolves Coach Change" thread, but it looks like that has dryed up.

Something more humans ought to try once in a while is called "perception checking" or in this case "putting yourself in someone else's shoes". If I was Steve Cobb I'd say ... If I was Steve Cobb's boss I'd say ... The brain virus of of thinking superficially for a simple answer in a complex world is rampant amongst us all however it can and should be mitigated with reason.

My reaction to Case's comment?

If I could distill his comment to one sentence it would be: "D2 good, therefore... Squirrel!" I know, I know, this fall Cobb and Case will be here, deal with it. I will, and I hope the Seawolves hit it out of the park. Just having a little fun. :)

You haters remind me of the battery bunny you just keep hating and hating and hating.
Your hating appears to have consumed you.

Maybe someday you'll find something other than hate to love.
But then again some people just enjoy being miserable.
Think you can drag down some more people to be miserable with you?
Maybe that's what makes the haters happy.

I'm not miserable at all, quite the opposite really but I have no problem if you like thinking that. I'm just speaking my mind and venting a little.
This is a 'colorful' place and I don't intend to break the tradition.

You can't commiserate with Alaskana because she says shes just as happy as a clam at high tide.
So who's gonna be miserable with you so you can commiserate?

Well, one can be happy in general and also unhappy with the direction of the UAA Seawolves hockey program. Ya know, like that whole
dualism thing and all. :cool:

Oh, and dude. I'm a dude.

I can't seem to locate Dr. Cobbs' name over there. Just wanting to discuss the coaching change over there. Something that doesn't seem to happen here. Just too busy hating to have a discussion. There's been a few haters visit that other thread but they're too ignorant and wanting to continue their hating to recognize what the thread is about. Whooze or however _airbanks spelled the hatred he tried to inject. Or jackyjim or the really hip pony guy (God what a laugh) whatever his name is can't figure out that the thread is actually trying to start a discussion on Seawolf hockey. Or the pony boys buddy trying to troll.
But over here with the haters that want to commiserate I'm just stoking the fire helping you out so you have something more to hate and comiserate over.
But you know what? The head Cobb hater has the best of me cause I have no idea what "Shiz" is or whatever. God I must be ignorant.
Hope the haters can bury the hate long enough to cheer on the Seawolves whoever Dr. Cobb chooses as coach. Or because the coach is Dr. Cobb's choice maybe the haters will have to cheer on the nooks.

So ...My interpretation: Yeah, hockey sucks, but, well, the rest of our D-II sports are great. So, seriously, who cares? Do yourself a favor and go buy some basketball tickets.
