JFC, not even Frazee got it this bad.

It was debated on ESPN's Around the Horn. They debated to blame Genoe or credit Makowski.

I didn't get to see it. What did they say?

Yes, and I have a great work-at-home job where I make $50,000/month, own a share of a private jet, and just picked up a foreclosed vacation home in Lake Tahoe, all before the age of 25. :rolleyes:

One gave credit to Makowski for shooting it, the other put the blame on Genoe. They also wondered why Genoe was covering the post and not making the net smaller (probably because he didn't expect a clear). It was also on PTI (much better show). Tony Kornheiser wondered if the puck made a funny hop.

And he just made Around the Horn.
I've always thought that a downfield march makes a lousy hockey fight song. Compare, contrast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npE9UtsOG3E

BTW, it was 78 and sunny down here in Texas today...

Nah, he'll score 3 goals the first weekend, just to get everyone excited, only to break his femur in an unfortunate snow-shoveling incident.

think about it, Kero, B. Pietila, C. Pietila, and a solid defenseman! and three at least other freshman one of whom might actually be good.

thanks to fade and to Hf for posting the game last sat. it helped.

But we actually have a Swede on the team. The Fins are simply Yoopers in disguise. :p

For some reason, many seem to think that simply changing the coach will greatly improve the fortunes of the program. This season started out very promising and then got crushed by injuries. It's pretty tough when you are picking up people off the street by mid-season. Before you change the coach, you must look at the underlying problems that impede success. Why were Mike Sertich, Newell Brown, Herb Boxer and Bob Mancini able to have better records in their other coaching stops than they did at Tech? Were they much better coaches in other organizations? No matter who has been there since John MacInnes retired, success has been elusive. Why? What are the underlying problems that have hindered all of these guys? What can be done to alleviate them? Because if you can't answer these questions, the next guy, whether the next year, the year after or 10 years from now, won't have much more success than his predecessors.

And before anyone jumps on the guy from Marquette, I grew up in Hancock, grew up on Tech hockey and names like Zuke, Usitalo, Jensen, Krieber and Payne mean something to me. Sure, I'm an NMU alum, but if I had my way it would be 1981 again and Tech and Northern would be in the Frozen Four together!

I'm under the impression that Sertie took the Tech job as a favor until the program could re-evaluate itself and hire a more permanent replacement (ultimately Russell). At any rate, he was only around long enough to stem the bleeding after Watters was canned. I think the general consensus is that Brown and Mancini were promising coaches who both took opportunities to move on to pros/OHL before either could make a long-term impact. From what I can dig up on Boxer, he spent a few years coaching second-tier minor league hockey after his rocky stint at Tech, and was canned midway into his 4th year with the Memphis Riverkings after a 9-23-0 start; hardly what I'd call success.
