Wake me up when Alabama has anything the civilized world cares about.

Sterling I'd be careful about dropping gloves with UAH. If we play them before the new coach can get it together here they may just kick our butts. Have you forgotten the Western Ontario fiasco at the beginning of the season?

Folks, there is another possible candidate for the job that no one seems to know about or has mentioned. I'm sorry to throw this tidbit out here and not say more but I think it best not to go further with this until I hear if he'll throw his hat in the ring. I do know for fact that Wayne Gretzky would personally recommend him to Gene Smith if the guy is interested in the job.

No, he's already ruled out that its not Messier, Jari Kurri, or Tretiak.

Maybe Super Mario :rolleyes:

Nah, we play close games with tOSU, but don't (http://collegehockeystats.net/0506/boxes/malhosu1.d02) lose (http://collegehockeystats.net/0506/boxes/malhosu1.d03) them.

[Still not sure how Canter beat the buzzer in that second game. Was listening to the OSU student broadcast and they were 1) incredulous but 2) really affirming that it happened. Best student broadcast I've heard at the D-I level that I wasn't a part of. ;)]

At UAH, we leave that to our head coach. ;)

I think Schafer from cornell, if hired at OSU, would be the nail in the Ohio State hockey coffin. Yes, hes a great recruiter and has had tremendous success in the ECAC, i just dont see the 10,000 fans a game everybody says we need to build a quality fan base, to come and watch paint dry. Cornell sells out every game because they have an enormous amount of tradition and quite frankly, there isn't much else to do in Ithaca. Their dump and trap, dump and trap style is painful to watch in person and maddening when trying to watch on tv. I tried watching the Cornell vs. Quinnipiac game on the NHL Network a few weeks back and couldn't make it through the first period. I feel this style of play would turn off any remaining fans they might still have.

Yes, there's nothing else to do in Ithaca but watch hockey. You only needed 20 minutes watching Cornell - Quinnipiac to figure that out. Schafer and Jones are not worthy of Bucky's consideration. I suggest you look at Appert or Leaman, if you're looking for an ECAC coach.

When did Mike Eaves resign at Bucky? I am sorry but your team is incredibly boring to watch and no it didn't take me 20 minutes to see that, ive seen over a dozen Cornell games over the years and they are all the same. It may work in Ithaca where hockey is fully entrenched in the Cornell/ Ithaca community, that style of play would turn off most fans here in Columbus where we are trying to build a fan base. I'd take the OHIO NATIVE Nate Leaman or a fiery young coach in Seth Appert over Mike Schafer any day. Not saying he's a bad coach because I'm not that dumb and the facts would point other wise. Schafer has built Cornell into a great program but Mike Schafer isn't what Ohio State needs at this time, nor do i believe Schafer would want to come here. Nate Leaman should be at the top of the list.

Now that we has gfmorris on here, how about we throw Danton Cole from UAH in the mix for the head coaching position here at Ohio State? Won a Stanley Cup and an NCAA Championship as a player and has three years of head coaching experience in the AHL. I think he's an up and coming head coach. His teams play hard and he seems to do well recruiting despite his recruiting limitations. He also has a great reputation in college coaching circles. I think WMU might be interested too.

Just like Lane Kiffin is committed to TN? :D

Admittedly I know very little about Danton...I hope the Buckeyes really explore all possibilities and do a thorough search.

I noticed how Sterling has not returned since he was shot down about Miami endowing their program :) .... and neither has the one-post poster who claimed Blasi was getting divorced. ... Ahhhh, gotta love it.

Things were starting to get entirely too civil in this thread, and far too hockey related ;)

I wonder how much of it was Pooley and how much was the environment. Esp since Army hasn't been much better.

Then again, Bill Belichik was terrible in Cleveland.. but the PC people who watched them on the ice closely seem to think that it their on-ice strategies were pretty abysmal.

Steve Poapst from the Chicago Steel of the USHL. Outstanding coach, highly regarded in all arenas, pro guys and D 1 guys like and respect, players kill for him and he gets recruiting. He also has an in with all of the USHL teams who hold him in high regard and would push high end players his way. He also went the college rioute and amde it to the frozen four as a captain at Colgate.

Steve Poapst -- Head Coach /General Manager
Steve Poapst, 41, enters his fourth season as General Manager and Head Coach of the Chicago Steel, after being named the USHL Coach of the Year two seasons ago. A native of Cornwall, Ontario, (where he was inducted into the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame in August 2008) Poapst retired as a player after splitting the 2005/06 season with the Pittsburgh Penguins and the St. Louis Blues of the NHL.
Poapst attended Colgate University and graduated in 1991 with a B.A. degree. In his junior year, Poapst helped the Red Raiders win the ECAC Championship and earn the school's first trip to the NCAA Frozen Four before being defeated in the final game against Wisconsin.

A veteran of over 1,000 professional games spanning a fifteen-year career, Poapst displayed perseverance, dedication and a diligent work ethic that helped him move up through the ranks of the ECHL, the AHL, and the NHL.

In 1992, Poapst helped the Hampton Roads Admirals of the ECHL win the Kelly Cup Championship and was selected to play in the 1993 ECHL All-Star Game.

From 1993-2000 Poapst became a stalwart defenseman for the Portland Pirates of the AHL, playing in 454 games. Poapst was a member of the 1994 Calder Cup Championship team and was chosen to represent the Pirates in the 1995 AHL All-Star Game. He was twice voted the "Unsung Hero" by the fans of Portland, and, in 2001, Poapst was inducted into the Portland Pirates Hall of Fame.

Poapst made his NHL debut with the Washington Capitals during the 1995-1996 season recording his first NHL goal in that game against the NY Rangers' Mike Richter.

During the 2000-2001 season, Poapst split time between the Norfolk Admirals (AHL) and the Chicago Blackhawks (NHL) before sticking with the Hawks in January 2001. Over the next four seasons with the Hawks, Poapst played in 220 games where his smart, stay at home style earned him upwards of 20 minutes of ice time most games. In 2003, Poapst was the Blackhawks nominee for the Bill Masterson Trophy, the award granted yearly to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

Poapst and his wife Kelly, along with son Braden, 13, and daughter Mara, 11, currently reside in Lombard, IL.

I like Poapst. Hasn't won a whole lot, though.

Steve Johnson in Fargo has had great success there and at Lincoln. You can't have John Cooper here in Green Bay, sorry.

I think John Cooper is a great candidate if you are going to hire from the Junior ranks. He has been a winner everywhere he has gone. Sorry GBPF, but if OSU doesn't look at Cooper they haven't done their homework.
