Lengthy article in the News Miner about the AD saga hopefully coming to an end. Also a blurb about Largen hiring a second assistant coach.

While I hope I am proven wrong, I canít help but feel this is a terrible hire. I went to his public meet and greet and came away shaking my head. Not surprisingly, this hiring processed was a bungled mess. But this decision has been made and itís too late to change anything. So I wish him the best of luck. But I sure hope the chain of command (such that it is) gets an earful regarding this hire, this process, and other recent hiring debacles. I am less than impressed with our Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.

It would be hard to come up with a better passive/aggressive approach to shutter UAF athletics within the next few years than what is happening now. IMHO.

Looking on the bright side, our tradition of hiring ADís with the same initials continues.

On a side note, I hear the WCHA is looking for a rink reporter at the Carlson Center this season.

Iíd like to nominate Alaska Hockey.

I'd second that except I think he might be disqualified because English is not is native language (not that there is anything wrong with that)...

I still have too much time on my hands, so here is my approximate summary of last yearís conference stats. Approximate lost scoring is just a quick look at what last yearís seniors did. If teams lost other scoring studs then adjust accordingly. Returning goalies is just my best guess.

I expect UAF to be 9 in the polls. But as a die hard fan, I expect us to finish 7th or maybe 6th if goaltending doesnít collapse and we improve on special teams. History shows (not just last year) that it is not a coincidence that combined special teams pretty much seals your fate.
