I haven't seen Brown fans calling for the head coach's head after years of dwelling in the basement of the ECAC.

That's because our current mediocrity is a marginal improvement on our past mediocrity. :)

Seriously though, Whittet is building the program from scratch and it's not quite there yet, but it's competitive. We were ALL calling for Roger Grillo's head after his 12-year tenure (*shudder*).

So when are we going to be getting a coach that will stop blaming his own team and actually start making in-game adjustments? 90/10 is an excuse.

Tell me FlagDUDE have you ever played sports in your life? Have you ever coached a team in your life? Im being completely serious here, I've played sports and coached in my life and if it was as easy as your making it seem, then we would all be in some Hall of Fame somewhere. Give it up on the Fire Appert crap. I get it your entitled to your opinions and thats fine but stop being an armchair coach and go coach a team. Let me watch and then slam all your mistakes. Besides, if you were face to face with Coach Appert, I highly doubt you would tell him half the stuff you have been posting lately. Glad you got your keyboard muscles on and know it all about how to coach winning hockey teams. Cant wait to see your team go undefeated. Good luck buddy.

You seem to be the know-it-all by your post, so enlighten us: How do you win a second and third period? And given what I saw with Colgate, Dartmouth, and Sacred Heart, don't tell me conditioning has something to do with it, because it doesn't.

I don't give advice out for free anymore. I'm not making money off this team so I will let you continue to enlighten us with your free advice on how to be a winning hockey team.

This conversation is getting really sad and/or pathetic. Why would we even think of letting go of Seth Appert right now? Who would we replace him with that is a much more talented head coach and is actually available to fill the role? I really can't think of anyone. I refuse to be an armchair coach and I refuse to put all of the blame for RPI's struggles on the coaching staff alone. The players are still a factor, and maybe they have to learn to play a full 60 minutes and Appert has done everything he can to motivate them.

Regardless, filling the USCHO Fan Forum with mass amounts of negativity and deconstructive conversation isn't really going to solve anyone's problems or make them feel any better about RPI's team.

FlagDud's available. He can teach the team how to stand on a stage and wave a banner.

Simple. Score more goals than the other team. Last I checked, a coach isn't out on the ice making that happen. Next question.

So when are we going to stop getting mediocre recruits that have regular and predictable meltdowns from season to season, and get rid of this coach that can't make adjustments to save his life?

Totally agree. If Appert was a student with this performance he would have been put on probation and then flunked out long ago. The homers who habituate this board are satisfied with these results? Keep smoking your own fumes boys. Time to change 'em up. He can't recruit players with heart. He can't motivate. He can't make mid-game adjustments. And he can't get them to play as a unit. Against the good teams we fold like a cheap suit. Dream on those who think Rensselaer is going to win out. Look at the polls that just came out. Rensselaer has fallen off the also-rans. You have a point in that we might be competitive in the AHA - maybe.

Well, well,well what does it take for Seth Appert to keep his job. Is making it to Lake Placid enough? For many of you underachievers I am sure that's enough. For me it's not. Getting in the championship game and loosing..... You can come back and play at hfh next year anything less take a walk. I am soo sick of excuses win baby!!!!!

Bad threads never die. At best they lie dormant for years like plague spores.

I know this is a sensitive subjective. Some people posting on the site have a relationship with Seth. So they will not be forthcoming. Others follow, others attack just to attack.
I am asking what do we expect this year? What do we have a right to
expect? Please post don't be afraid RC can't hurt you :)

The reason I started the thread has been rectified. But if you'd like to bring up the subject, a trip to the league championship weekend would be sufficient. It's been 12 years. In the long run, we'd be expected to make it once every three years. Give a little time for an anomaly caused in the short run, but nine years is a bit much. There are a lot of issues with this team, especially in some of the team's strategies, which would lie on the coaching staff for preparedness. It isn't 100% of the blame. Sadly some of it, though, we cannot control.
