With the current players coming back, along with the great recruiting classes, there's no reason Rohlik should not win immediately.

Yeah, if we really want to change the culture around here, the first thing we need to do is quit making excuses as to why we don't win.

This will be a big step for Coach Rohlik as his very first D-1 Head Coaching job will be in the BIG-10. What a HONOR for him.

Hopefully he takes advantage of this opportunity and builds something special here as you don't often see someone go from no head coaching experience to the head coach of a program like Ohio State's. Ohio State isn't normally a place that hires unproven assistants like Rohlik and allows him to "learn on the job." So, yes, I would agree, it's a big step for him, and a big honor as well, because it doesn't usually happen at Ohio State.

the cost of competing just got a little easier. The Big Ten Network today announced that each of the six teams will receive $2 million each for next season.

1) $2,000,000 I guess that takes care of the Basketball or Football team having to subsidize mens hockey!
2) Rohlik was the head coach of one of the top High School teams in Minnesota, Osiecki was the Head Coach of a USHL team. Rohlik has more college coaching experience than Osiecki did coming into Ohio State 3 years ago. Ohio State hockey hired a coach 3 years ago with zero head coaching experience at the college level, how much experience did Markel have before taking the reins? Give Rohlik the chance to prove it as he has earned this opportunity and deserves it.
And yes,....it is an honor

Green Bay has been one of the top teams in the USHL over the years and Osiecki won some titles there, so he knew how to build a championship program. In addition to being the head coach, Osiecki was also the GM for Green Bay. I would actually put a USHL team above a HS team, but that's just my opinion. Having said that, I am all for giving Rohlik a chance to prove he is the right guy for the job, and with the talented players we have back, along with the recruits, he will have a golden opportunity to prove himself right away by taking our talent and winning right away.

The secret is out recruit State of Minnesota kids and win a National Championship. 30 of the last 35 teams winning a title have had a Minnesotan on their roster, even BC. This is a good hire even if it were uneventful.

1- Well this is not other sports, and unlike those other sports OSU hasn't established themselves like those three have.

2- Those three all have higher rated incoming recruiting classes.

3- OSU losing key players in Hjelle and Crane.

4- These high expectations, unrealistic in my opinion, on the new coach in a new league just setting yourself for disappointment.

And I'm not an OSU basher, I'm an Ohio guy and they actually #3 on my list and know alot of kids who play/played there, just being realistic.

I'll give you the first one, but Crane barely contributed this past season and there's no way one could classify him as a key player.
