Seriously how do you compare the success of Duke Basketball to failure of Brown Hockey? You're on the wrong thread.

Hate to pile on but went to Brown game in Providence. 50 max attendance.why would anyone play there? In addition watched 3 games this year vs Q. Have never watched a worst coached team than Brown. Talent exists on team....no systems, and kids quit in 2nd period . Coach might be worst I have ever watched. I have been around College hockey since 76. Brown was once the pride of hockey

thumbs up...painful and unacceptable

I didn't. My comment was regarding the ulterior motives of people who have pre-existing relationships with players. Try reading it again.

Or don't. I really don't care. I've been with the program through thick and thin for over 25 years and I'll be here long after you.

Listen this is very simple, the coach is an idiot and needs to be fired ASAP.

The AD who cares very little about hockey program needs to wake up.

Sitting Tyler Wood throughout season, probably your best defensive defenseman when you give up more than 6 goals a game is idiotic, why? Kid plays close to 90 games over 3 years and during his senior season, you screw the kid and sit him, just dumb.

Sitting Ernst last series weekend, a senior witch an impressive Goals Against, playing for a horribly coached team should count for something. Again why?

Its simple, this idiot needs to be fired now, I will go so far as to offer $50,000 donation to Brown Hockey Program if they fire this clown. Everyone loves Assistant Coach from Northeastern, Jason, make him the coach, he gets it, he is respected, simple answer.

I sat through so many games this season "steaming" from the bafoon coaching from head coach. Just a joke.

My name is Eric Schnairsohn, I am not hiding from anyone, 50K to program if they can this clown, NOW.

Its that simple.

Quite the first post, certainly opened some eyes, but really poor form.

Seriously. That post had two purposes:

1. Stick up for his family friends who had their feelings hurt.

2. Show he's a baller and can drop $50K whenever he wants.

He doesn't care about Brown hockey in the least. He took his swipe and then self-identified as a big shot.

What a clown.

Really forget the post look at the hard data from the program, the guy probably does care about Brown hockey. Ulterior motive? Every player cited are seniors how does that help them? Is very accurate about the respect of the assistant coach.

Brown University hockey program, on a consistent downward trend.

Standard Team Statistics

Goals ranked 54 of 60 teams
Goals against ranked 57 of 60 teams
Shots ranked 56 of 60 teams
Shot % ranked 55 of 60 teams
ShA ranked 27 of 60 teams
Save % ranked 60 of 60 teams .871
PP% ranked 60 of 60 teams 7.6%
PK% ranked 60 of 60 teams 72.2%
SHG ranked 17 of 60 teams 5
SHGA ranked 43 of 60 teams 3
FO% ranked 46 of 60 teams 47.5
Penalty minutes 51 of 60 (and coach does not bench repeatedly dumb penalties)
Age 21.11 ranked 35 of 60 teams
Average attendance ranked 57 of 60 teams

Whittet Career .360 win % and 4 of 8 seasons with under 10 wins 3 with 5 or under.

Career Totals: 76 149 35 .360 this year .167%

You seriously trying to defend this program's outcomes, who cares if the guy's got money. The outcomes speaks for thenselves. If they actually analyzed individual data performance, players are not used to their strengths. If you cared about Brown hockey you would want to know what the university's administration was doing to address this. A true fan would have their feelings hurt that the University allowed this to go on.

You think they will get a SINGLE high level recruit with this performance, having spoken to multiple scouts watching games-they report NO one will send a kid here due to coaching and university support.

Let's move on from this debacle, and get this program headed in the right direction again.

If you want to sit in the stands for the next ten years watching teams get punished, losing over and over again I guess that is fine for you. Just because you have sat in the stands longer doesn't mean you are right. There is not much to support your stance. Some of us would like to see Brown field a more competitive program, and that means something has to change,

Agreed, at least someone is showing that they care about the Brown hockey program

You care about the program. I can tell. Would love to discuss this in depth with you.

But first don't align yourself with Mr. $50k baller. He provided his name which pretty quickly revealed his twitter feed which consists of 4 things.

1. Pictures with the Wood family. (Ulterior Motive!!!!)
2. Trying to pick fights with Whittet
3. Fat shaming women
4. Genuflecting at the alter of Fuhrer in Chief Trump


So...let's forget the faux baller who probably couldn't come up with a five spot if he had to, and move on to real issues.

We have an administration that does not care about success. Until that changes we will have to strive for mediocrity and accept futility.

If there are more like you coming up through the school's alumni base maybe we've got a shot at resurrecting this once proud program, but for too long that has fallen on the shoulders of a select few of us who, to be honest, have dedicated too much time for too few results for too long.

See my other post. That guy doesn't care about the program. He's friends with the Wood family and is an internet bully who wants to be perceived as a big shot.

This should resonate with everyone who regularly posts on this board (and those who don't, but who attend and watch the games and are invested in the success of the program). We need to have our voices heard. At the very least, we can try emailing the AD. If enough people sound off, they'll have to address it - at least internally - at some point.

Smearing Brendan Whittet online won't fix anything. He's a mere symptom of a far larger and more poisonous problem: administrative apathy/neglect. Yes, we need to replace him as head coach, but he's certainly not entirely responsible for this mess.

I would go higher - the President's Office. Brown athletics across the board is down, causal connection to President Simmons' tenure. Current President inherited a mess and she needs to right the ship by showing support for Brown athletics, starting financially. Dismissing the AD and head coaches is not going to change anything. Write the president!

I received a response from Jack Hayes assuring me that my concerns will be taken "very seriously." It's not exactly inspiring, but it's better than what I was expecting (nothing).

Divver is reporting that Sam Lafferty is coming back for his senior year. Brendan keeps a key, if not the key, player for next season.

logan

Lafferty may be coming back but Tagtmeyer quit....fourth player to quit in one year. Thats probably another record we own!. Still waiting to hear some good news about removal of Whittet. AD must have the same response to everyone who writes in - i got the same one "that they will take my concerns very seriously". Ugh

That's too bad about Tegtmeyer - I always liked his two-way game and thought he was underused. Lafferty is a big asset, but he has virtually no help. Corcoran and Willman were sensational when they played on his line, but couldn't generate offense independent of him. Beaudoin was really the only forward who didn't frequently play with Lafferty but still managed to occasionally produce, and he only had 12 points (I'm looking for that number to increase as a sophomore, but still).

The writing is on the wall: A voluntary mass exodus of players should be a death sentence for any coach.

KDiff_- Congrats on your 6th place IN ECAC Tournament Picks!! I was going to ask if you wanted to place a friendly wager with me on as to whom would do better - season ticket for 2017-2018 - but never got around to emailing you in time.
