Wow, what if people in the real world could choke at crunch time and still get a promotion?
How awesome would that be for the rest of us?

I knew it. Right when he lost to the Atlantic Champion, it was a perfect match.

Fix up your old Ford and make it run great, but it can still crap out.

Guys at the Cadillac dealership see you did a good job and invite you over to work with better tools and better cars.

Or...offer you a lot more money to fix their own broken Ford. A Cadillac the gophers are not.

Well... you still didn't really "fix" the car if it's still broke. If you built a car from broken parts and made it run like a "champ"... then maybe I'll give you a better job.

More sparkle than substance, not really that practical to do what you need to get done... I don't know. They might be exactly that.

PS Maybe we should start a new thread for car talk?

Now the question is whether Motzko sabotaged the team against Air Force. Wouldn't put it past that turncoat.

I think you're on to something. It was Bill Parcells planning his exit from the Patriots while trying to prepare for the Super Bowl. :D

Iíll be even more sick if a certain Husky alum leaves the WCHA for the NCHC...

It would be tough to beat that as a back-up plan, but I don't know how realistic that is. I know Hastings is an SCSU alum, but not sure how much of a connection he still has.

I say little chance of Hastings taking SCSU job as SCSU is not well financially having lost thousands of students past few years and cut a lot of programs so not like they have the $ for buyout.

There are a number of things working in Mankatoís favor of him staying..

But, if the Mavs arenít going to be headed to the NCHC in the next couple years, which Hastings and MSU have made clear is their intention, chances could be greater..

(FWIW, Iíve been told MSU expects to be in the NCHC in the next 2-4 years)

Motzko didn't have a buyout?

I think this is a temp fix to bridge gap for recruiting and the real story is who in on staff as that will tell you the longer term plans at U.
