What about Michigan State? Will Mark Hollis pull the plug on the Tom Anastos era?

His name was in the first post of the thread.

Question for all of you - I've been nosing around in all the "FIRE XXXX" threads because, well, I don't really know why. But I was wondering - does the replacement coach need to be an alum? Or is that just an extra added bonus?

Sneddon's Cats took 2.5 of 3 points from Umile's Cats this season.

Beauty, battle of the cat people:)

Missed that, just didn't see anyone talking here about State (despite the two or three other USCHO dedicated threads).

An alum behind the bench is nice--obviously they care about the school and program--but in the end you really just need a good coach, regardless of where he got his degree. Sometimes being an alum may be too much pressure, esp. if things don't go well

Brad Berry. Getting swept by Denver is simply unacceptable and UND needs to take a stand.

Probably Should Get Fired, But Who Can They Get That Could Do Any Better With That Program?
Dennehy

For the sake of conversation.. I don't buy the "That Program" part of this. Contrary to the opinion of some of the has-beens on this forum, it's not 2002 anymore. The current MC institution probably has a stronger commitment to the hockey program than two or three other HEA programs. (If you listen to the Maine people, the administration is about to outsource the program to India) Then there's the two or three HEA schools where the men's hockey team is at best the fourth- or fifth-most popular D1 sport at the school. And you can't say that the administration hasn't committed the resources they can to improve facilities and recruiting.

Basically, aside from a small alumni base, a rocky history and the presence of some bigger fish nearby, I don't think MC is at a severe disadvantage. I don't think there's any reason "status quo" or "treading water" should be the standard operating procedure. I don't think Dennehy feels that way either. I just think it's important for the AD/Pres/Administration to consider that as well, if **** really takes a turn for the worse.

Maybe that's why the packers and movers keep posting - they want to help Maine make the trip!

I'd just like to point out that, having had the misfortune of seeing Derick Roy "tend" a goal on and off for three years now, you're better off with neither Roy than with one.

I respectfully disagree. Kevin's contributions have far outweighed Derick's shortcomings. The jury is "in" on Derick and he is now where he should be - OTB!

Yeah, if you guys are in any way unsatisfied with the contributions of the Roy brothers, I'll be happy to take them off your hands! As bad as Derick may be, he's probably better than any of our goalies.

Fraud results. After St Lawrence their wins are against UNH, Merrimack, and UMass. Now they finish with UConn and Maine. (all teams are 8-12th in Standings). The Harvard Beanpot Consolation game win? Yay. They tied ULowell and Quinnipiac which is good.

Maybe they will come out with a win in the first round best of 3. Then they will get drubbed by a real opponent barring a miracle. Then rinse, wash, repeat next year. Same tape on replay over and over and over.

Simply never going to compete for anything real with Madigan. Champions of being mediocre.

What did they win before Madigan? Beanpot and Hockey East in 1988. OK, what else? And I believe Madigan was a coach on those teams

Don't be shocked in BU and Quinn part ways in the next couple of years

It's funny, cause I look at the standings and still see Merrimack at or near the bottom just like 2002.



The current MC institution probably has a stronger commitment to the hockey program than two or three other HEA programs.

Congrats, you're more committed to hockey than UMass. Wooo hoooo!!



Then there's the two or three HEA schools where the men's hockey team is at best the fourth- or fifth-most popular D1 sport at the school.

The two biggest offenders here are at the top of the standings right now.

Tom Anastos at Michigan State needs to go. Some 30 games under 0.500 in four-3/4 seasons.
7-20-3 this season. Steady decline in players development. Unable to inspire his team to preform. Absolutely one of the worst hires ever. One time making the NCAA Tourney (his first and with Rick Comley's players). Offense is cracking on at a mind numbing 1.8 goals for since Christmas, and at 2.33 for the season.
Defense is going strong at 3.50 gaa. Out scored 21-9 by U.Mich in four games this season. HE needs to go at the end of this season! Please.

As much as I hope tCHHCoMSU is relieved of his duties at the end of this season, I believe he will have at least til 2017 to get it together. His contract runs until the end of the 2017/18 season. Sad......

If Ohio State's program continues to be less than mediocre, Steve Rohlik should be on the hot seat. This is the most inconsistent and undisciplined hockey I have ever seen at Ohio State. This is the third season of a five-year contract. When it comes to hockey, Ohio State will normally not terminate someone before their contract runs out, but they may make an exception in this case if Rohlik doesn't get the program moving forward, which he hasn't to this point.

Oh, I don't know about getting rid of Rohlik. Hockey at OSU, just like at Michigan State, is not a priority within the AD's office. FB and BB (both men's and women's BB at MSU) is more of a priority these days.

For this reason I'd only support letting him go if they 100% had someone better already lined up. Just firing in the hopes that just anybody can come in and do a better job, I don't think will work. We have been better in the past than we are now though, so its not ridiculous to think we could again. And yes, FB and BB are always gonna come first for B1G ADs, but schools like MSU and Wisco should be doing better than they're doing regardless.

It is a fool who reads Dirty's ramblings seriously. Or reads them at all. Or writes them.
