    Great program and a great coach.....who would've been a great candidate for RPI, IMO.

    For the football fans- RPI over Allegany College 52-14 in a game that was not totally indicative of the score. AC threw for a ton of yardage but shot themselves in the foot with frequent fumbles and other mishandling of the ball. Offensively RPI has not lost much of a step from last year but defensively will have to tighten up that pass defense if they want to be a top tier team. Looks like Hobart and Ithaca bring a lot to the table and as everyone knows, we can never take Union for granted. But in any case, you have to win the ones you are supposed to and today our boys did exactly what was necessary.

    I agree with both comments as well as Sezenack's original statement.

    I would go further and say this is not a good look going all the way to the top. NG gave much of himself to this program and deserves far better. Reinforces a lot of what I have been feeling about things the past few years.

    I heard at the time of his accident they were getting ready to part ways with him. I have no idea if that is true, but that would certainly explain the cutting of ties. I'm not saying it is right, just that it would explain the situation. They certainly could have made an effort to find a way for the RPI community to offer him continued support such as collecting and forwarding cards and offerings after he went back to Canada. I can appreciate his bitterness and wish him only the best. I am certain it has been a long, very tough recovery and when you get to the stage where you can take stock of where you are and where you have been, he must be very lonely.

    Actually none of this is true. Nolan is not lonely, he has his beautiful wife and daughter who are the lights of his life. Nolan is a dedicated family man. Nolan was my neighbor when he lived in Troy and we would talk ever so often even after the accident. I saw Nolan at a coffee shop about a year ago in Troy and chatted; he is not bitter, in fact he is up beat. Let's just tell the flat out truth, the present coach has never try to cultivate a relationship with the alumni or anybody especially from the Appert days. In your post, you say Smith was going to part ways with Nolan before the accident; ok, fine. However, Smith got rid of Jewell who was well liked and did it from what I hear in a terrible way and he picked him! Smith can't keep recruits, players or coaches. This is the truth, everyone can see it with their own eyes. Nolan sentiments are shared by many. Lee McElroy's stewardship of this program is atrocious. He's just sitting back and collecting a check and could care less abt his only D1 program at the school. His lack of attention to the program and those who wore the Cherry and White is evident for everyone to see. Yep, I am a Seth guy, no doubt and the reason I am is bx he talks to Nolan, reaches out, cares abt him. More than the current regime. Smith will never get an NCAA bid or come in 2nd in the ECAC like Seth did... never.! God speed Nolan, thanks for your contribution to the program.

    Your posts have been spot on throughout the whole Smith Debacle.

    Smith may not be the one to blame here. I said earlier that I didn't know what to say about it, but I'll say now that it's truly sickening. We don't know and will never know who is to blame for this treatment of Graham, but RPI and its hockey program as a whole need to get their act together.

    There is a time and place for dealing with things like this and on Twitter is not the place in my opinion. But sadly it seems that is how things are done more often then not today.
    Loyality means sticking with a thing in good and bad times. Not willing to do that, stay home, I got this.

    Wow. I don't know Smith or McElroy and they may be the scum that Graham's message was clearly intended to portray, but I also don't know that his perspective is correct. He claimed he's been ignored for months and years. The latter would be a pretty neat trick since he was only injured 18 months ago and as recently as a year ago he was visiting with the staff in the office before moving out of the country. The sad thing about this matter, regardless of who is correct (and it likely that neither side is completely right), is that it is being played out in an public forum. There is no winner.
