That's my biggest fear too. I suspect Gibby and Larson drove out to SD for that reason and to get the feel of Oliver.

One may have hoped that it would stop as Bob didn't do it here but I guess being a Gopher changes things for people in charge. Sad really.

I guess that means you think Rabs has his head up his ass?

It's not just a bump in salary, it's career advancement. Everyone but the homers understand this.

It's name advancement...nothing more.
MN is still a name and we aren't. But he is not advancing his career IMO by doing the same thing at MN as he would here.
It's the name and the money.
And yeah im a homer cause you couldn't pay me enough to ever work there.

I've gone from a job at one company to the same job at a more recognizable company for more pay. I considered it career advancement. I guess we can agree to disagree on the definition of career advancement.

I look at it this way. If I'm in an industry...i don't want people just looking at the name of where i work...but the quality of the work I did and be able to recognize that high quality work can and is done at places without the name...which has been done here.
Those teams worth working for are going to understand that while SCSU is not a national name as a school itself...it is in the hockey world for anyone who actually pays attention to it and would know that what the Huskies have done over Raboin's time here is close to what MN did over the same time frame.
They wouldn't need to see the name school to understand the ability of the coach in question. That's why it's name advancement for me.

I think Lucia exiting the GA set the tone for the program, so it doesn't surprise me that Bob followed suit. Also, I think it's kind of understood that new coaches get a reprieve from the GA, particularly when it comes to players they recruited at previous jobs. For Bob that would be SCSU (and thankfully he hasn't sniped any yet). For Brett that would be UMD. I don't know that he'd be able to switch any of them, but if it's open season on UNO, I'd love for him to snipe Pekar.

Zoom into the left.

I guess that settles it. I wonder why there hasn't been any announcements. Once again, this all smells.

Its a state employee thing. If nothing has been finalized by the U yet and Rabs has not formally resigned...technically he's still an SCSU employee.

If things go as planned the Huskies job won't be open until long after Raboin would want his first head coaching job. Why not continue to work with Bob get a foot in the door on a higher paying job that should open right when Raboin is a candidate. he can always come back here later in his career or if Larson doesn't stick he can try to get this job.

Now that Sioux Falls has been eliminated, I wonder if we'll finally see coaching announcements.

Schloss: Motzko is expected to flip several more recruits to Minnesota.
St. Cloud State commit Garrett Pinoniemi has removed his reference to being a Husky commit in his Twitter profile. I’m expecting him to commit to Minnesota soon.
Two others who those in junior hockey circles expect to be targets for Minnesota are St. Cloud Cathedral teammates Nate Warner (St. Cloud State commit) and Jack Smith (Minnesota Duluth commit). They were teammates with Motzko’s son last season. Both Warner and Smith still list themselves as St. Cloud State and Minnesota Duluth commits on Twitter, though.
