Nepotism has no place at this level. The league continues to get better, with one exception. Nice to see so many players getting to the show, academics and athletics can coexist.

The teams get better and better, look at the rankings. Should a team have two sons on it when neither of them are at that level? And if they were on that level, should the be playing for their Dad, or somewhere else? College Hockey should never be like Youth Hockey, Parent Coaches and all of the associated issues should be long gone at that point. It really should be a policy. I feel bad for the kids that have to watch it all season and look the other way. In spite of that I still love IVY Hockey. By the Way, Harvard should be having more success, maybe this is the year they can challenge Yale and Cornell. Can't Wait.

What team are you even talking about?? If you're not going to specify, then don't waste our time. Either let us know exactly what you're complaining about so we can sympathize with you or berate you, or don't say anything at all. Don't just speak in generalities; not all of us are familiar enough with all 6 teams' rosters to know exactly what you're talking about.

The players on the team and the administrators at the school know exactly what i am talking about. It's sad, it will hurt the team for years to come. Bad practice needs to be abolished.

He's probably talking about Notre Dame. Everyone else is.

Why? Notre Dame has a great hockey program.
Who knows what he's talking about? Sounds like pure jibberish...

Yeah but we don't, and we're the ones reading your thread. Why'd you post here if you're not interested in having an actual conversation?

Then why, pray tell, are you *****ing about it here? Do you understand that this is a FAN forum, not one for players, coaches, or administrators? I agree with your premise; grossly unfair nepotism is never acceptable. But I will never understand why you find it necessary to speak in code like this. If you have something to say, say it. If not, pipe down.

Dartmouth has had both Gaudet boys playing for their dad over the last few years. That's about the only thing I can think of that he's talking about. I haven't stayed in the loop with the athletic department since I left, but I know the team had no issues with Joe, so in the absence of anything specific, I'm guessing they don't have issues with Jim, either. I'm going to assume the poster's either talking out of his *** or is friends with someone who didn't see the ice that often. Or the spirit of Nick Boucher is back, and a player is being dumb enough to post on this board again...

Joe Gaudet looks like a decent, but not above average, player by his stats. 43 points over four years, not terrible- indicative of a 3rd-liner or so. His brother has nearly no point production, but I assume he's more of a conservative defenseman. Keep in mind that the coach's kids are always subject to more scrutiny than all the other players, because when they perform poorly, nepotism can be used as a scapegoat. Former US Men's Soccer coach Bob Bradley took a TON of criticism for starting his son, Michael, in nearly every game (I happened to be under the impression that he was one of our best midfielders, and that his prominent role with the team was justified no matter who the coach was. Indeed, he was one of the lone bright spots in the first half last night against Mexico in the first game under his father's successor).

I also don't know anything about the situation, so perhaps both players are underwhelming in reality and Crusso's allegations are logical conjecture. If this is indeed the case, then I am in complete agreement with you, Crusso.

However, I am still flabbergasted as to why it took 16 posts and the assistance of another poster to figure out what the hell you were talking about.

I'm wondering how it's supposedly going to effect the team for years to come - Joe's graduated and Jim's a senior...

Not to mention Dartmouth's still light years better than they were when Gaudet came back in the late 90's. They had some rough years but are coming off a pretty successful season (missed hte tournament by one game yet again, but I digress).

I agree, I'd rather have a coach who can win who perhaps favors his own sons too much than a guy who plays everyone fairly but can't be successful.
