Hey, I know I'm just dumping on UM/AA. Doesn't make the stereotypes any less true, or fun. :D

This is all well and good, but what's the word out of the paint store?

Ann Arbor is a Midwest haven for Northwestern/U Chicago/Kenyon rejects, idiotic Bernie Bros, and other pretentious, upper-middle class turds who wouldn't be caught dead in a third-world country, and think "world class" means overpriced condos, no/expensive parking, and mediocre ethnic food. In fact, New York, Chicago, and even Madison, do "pretentious hipster ******" far better than Ann Arbor ever will. :D

Had I applied and gotten into Meechigan years ago, my dad would have been over the farking moon. Love to hate 'em all you want, it's a Grade AAA institution.

Now he has a Nimitz-class bug up his *** about them know-it-all Ann Arbor libruls sterilizing the deer and not letting REAL MURICAN HUNTERS descend on the Diag with 30.06's.

(And I've never been to a third world country, but I lived in Saginaw which is a reasonable facsimile.)

I'm in a third world country as we speak right this second and it's a lot better than Saginaw.

My son says I take this way too personally. but I can't help it. I had hope... for a while there.

And now George Sipple of the Free Press is saying a source says there'll be a press conference tomorrow.

Bummer!

Well, we're publishing that Mel will leave. Sufficient information:

Bummer!In one respect, this is a good thing because it didn't drag out...by them wrapping this up for tomorrow, it gives MTU to a chance to get their stuff figured out much earlier than when they hired Mel. Sad to see him go, but very thankful this isn't dragging out.

WXYZ is reporting it as well.
I have to say I'm bitterly disappointed. And that's an understatement.
if its Muckalt than that means it's just a stepping stone again and we can look forward to another change in 3 or 4 years.

If someone like Muckalt is the guy and puts up results like Pearson, why would you care if Tech is a stepping stone?

Loyalty is dead. Michigan fans will argue that he's "their" man because he coached there for over 2 decades prior, and there's some truth to that. However, the next coach should be the best guy they can get with the resources we have available, period. I never again want to hear talk about how, "He's gotta be an alum". If it is an alum, fine, but no matter what he says in public, don't expect that to mean a bigger name program isn't going to send a Brinks truck stuffed with cash to lure him away when he's successful. Everyone has a price.I read everything he said as coach speak...it sucks, but that is the way of the world...the big one to me that stuck out was "But Michigan is Michigan" that was the one that got me worried through all the positive stuff.

the truth would be nice. I get that it's done, I just don't like it done the way it is. And I don't like being led on like a lamb to slaughter. And fade is completely right. The debate ought to be what do we have to do to get to point that we don't have this happen any more. It's a real problem that has to be confronted. the University did everything in their power to keep him, yet he left anyway. and now I have to live with all these smug michigan alums

well first, lets be honest, MTU will never get there unless they're in a premier league, which the WCHA currently is not.

You're taking my post wrong, I wasn't complaining about Mel, just trying to put a silver lining on a new coach search.

Many great accompaniments. Mel & Chris Bergeron both took over tough situations and built their programs step by step and with the support of fans alumni & donors have invested in the game and in their communities.

I want to see a 2 week process with 3 finalists. I do not want Muckalt to be anointed without a national search.

Mike Guentzel comes to mind as a Mel like hire, go get him Tech! If he shows interest.
Ron Rolston, Davis Payne, Greg Brown, Ben Barr will hopefully apply.

Go Tech!

The only thing I appreciate about this situation, is that we know now.

In no way, am I wishing Mel luck. Michigan doesn't need luck.

Not sure I'm interested in Rolston, or that he is interested in the NCAA ranks. It's been a long-arse time since he was directly involved with the college game.

Mike Guentzel would be a Mel-like hire because he'd be gone faster than the ink could dry on Don Lucia's retirement papers. He's not the coach you're looking for.

Him and G Money. Take your pick.

He coached the US Junior team up until 2011 when he went on his journey to become an NHL head coach. A few familiar names on his last team.

Much as I would accuse you of trying to steer us clear of Mike, I would agree. He's a Goofer, through and through, and tDon is not that far out from retirement.
