This has been a fun week lol
osualum86, I'd recommend that the Buck's score more goals than that local team. I went to watch the FF in Boston once. Nice city, nice people, nice arena. But my team lost the scoring contest to some team wearing green, and it soured the whole experience for me. I think you'll have a much better time if OSU takes advantage of the fact that half of what was supposed to be the Eagles blue line were off hunting for gold.
So score more goals, remember to bonk Grant in the head, and all of his info and tips will just be icing on the cake.

I would be remiss to even forget about the freshman on the team. Most of these committed under Handrahan, had to recommit under Potter, then recommit again under Muzerall. Not all were retained during each of those transitions, but those that were, congratulations to them for sticking it out.
All these young ladies have gone through an awful lot over the last few years. Here's hoping they can chalk up a big W in Boston.
You're past posts have taken shots at Maine and Providence coaches... both doing well. Constant shots at RIT....the coach has won conference and national championships with zero scholarship money and it's finally catching up to him... UConn? - winning record......Syracuse, Vermont, Mankato....I know I'm missing some but I'm pretty sure you're a coach who couldn't do it better.
In the end, we get it...Muzzy and Kevin Houle are the best and that's your opinion. But these other coaches are not that bad.....just an honest response to keep the message board going!
Those of you who say I should have included the whole team in my statement about the adversity are probably right. They have all gone through the adversity of these coaching changes. Thankfully, the athletic department finally got it right, bringing in Nadine Muzerall. That was definitely a home run hire for this program.
Recruiting is just one part of being a coach. How you treat your players, how you talk to them, how you manage them, how you behave and handle yourself in public and in private, your ethics and integrity, all those things are the real keys to being a well respected coach. Muzzy is not my favorite D1 coach but I totally respect what she's done since coming in as late in the process as she did.
I am a former player who has lots of connections as do so many former players. Pretty simple.

Let's just say dd17 built on what you started, adding more good insights.
I do agree with previous posters than Handrahan sure built a strong base. Letís await judgement to see how this team competes in a few years when Muzzeralls commits start coming in.

Handrahan may have been a good recruiter, not so sure he knew what to do with the talent when he got it..........much like the Edmonton Oilers, can have a lot of # 1 picks but it knowing how to coach and develop is the key to winning. Kudos to Muzerall who has been able to take program to new heights in 2 very short years. I suspect now that Ohio has developed a winning culture with a number of key pieces to build around, more top end players will be signing on at " The Ohio State" !
