So let's recap:

- Worst Record In College Hockey
- Last In Scoring Offense
- Last In PP Percentage
- Missed Playoffs
- 3rd straight 10th Place Finish
- 10 years without the Governor's Cup

Let me repeat that one: 10 YEARS.

Essentially, this incoming class better be the best class ever or the program is gone.

On paper, the incoming glass looks better than what we've seen in quite some time. Hopefully they don't read your post and change their mind. :rolleyes:

Our latest recruit is his teams C0-MVP:

Jimjamesak/Woody?
Hard to tell the difference.
They both do all they can to better the program. NOT!

And how about cleaning up your post to reflect the years we were cheated out of the cup.
I'm anxiously awaiting how you put a negative spin on that.
Or are you and Woody just doing your best to be as negative as possible?
Wow what a fan!

Ooops, sorry, I thought I was in the "Summary of Michigan Tech in the 2000s" thread. Been there, done that, it's not fun. Tech averaged 8 wins per season from 1998 to 2011 culminating with consecutive seasons of 6, 5 and 4 wins each 2008-11. On the upside, Tech is also proof you can turn things around.

At this point I'd settle to be like Lake State who has a good winning season like every five years.

Tech didnít face the budget issues that heavily impacts recruiting and general interest like UAA and UAF have. When the government keeps cutting the funding and there is immense uncertainty that there will be a program, how can anyone even attempt to turn things around?

UAA is better than their record showed. Both Alaska teams had off nights this season and the Nanooks were able to get some good wins that kept their season alive. But both need to improve ASAP.

I would disagree. The lack of money wasn't a huge public discussion like the AK state budget talks are, but there wasn't much money being spent on Tech hockey during those years. In fact at one point, it was discussed dropping the program down to Div II/III so they could cut spending and hopefully be more competitive.

And thatís what Iím getting at. This budget crisis isnít going to be a one year thing, we have 3 years left with Dumbleavy and friends, and if hockey continues to underperform it becomes a brighter and brighter target for the axe. There is a window to show improvement but itís literally next season, itís make or break for real. Thatís why I say this incoming class better be the real deal or itís over.

The problem is that this yearís junior & senior classes were both heavily affected by the first death threat against the Alaska programs. And now that youíre on the chopping block again, donít look for blue chippers lining up for a seat at Sully.

Theyíre not looking for blue chippers, theyíre looking for kids to play in the WCHA.

Don't get me wrong, if it ultimately comes down to you or us, then I will push until the end for Nanook hockey.

But...I enjoy our rivalry, I enjoy the smack talk and plus I know there are die hard Seawolf fans who would be devastated if the program folded, and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Not even UAA fans.

There are a lot of non-AK people who enjoy the rivalry. I enjoy reading the smack comments. Governorís Cup SOGs is my favorite pick Ďem bonus question ;)
