For those wondering...yes, newly installed SCSU President Robbyn Wacker is well aware of the impact of Division One college hockey being a native of Colorado Springs, CO.

I'll be compiling my 2018-19 "Road Trip Ranking" piece in the near future. With the outstanding 2018-19 @SCSUHUSKIES_MH schedule it looks like Duluth will be knocked off it's #1 perch this season.

I have high expectations for this coming season. I'm less optimistic after that.

I know everybody wants to believe that Larson has the ability to lead SCSU to future greatness, but as of right now I just see a coach who failed to bring any of his recruits over from UMD, lost three to UMN, and whose first two recruits came courtesy of Gibbons. He comes off as genuine but low energy. If the Huskies have success this season, I'll give as much credit to Gibbons and Oliver as I give to Larson. Hell, Schuldt should probably get most of the credit.

In short, I'm pissed. You can say that makes me a bad fan, and that's your prerogative, but you can't say I'm not a passionate fan. It's the only reason I'm so worked up about all this.

Meanwhile, though I have no idea how far the discussions went, my preferred head coaching candidate just won gold at the World Championship.
It's almost like it's something bigger than yourself.
Playing at St. Cloud State has been the best four years of my life.

I'm not pissed. Just anxious. The recruit news just gets me wondering about various scenarios which is just a waste of energy and time. Probably why most don't want to know until it's confirmed, just easier to deal with.
I'll give the new guy a couple years before I make any hasty judgement. I at least have to meet him first, hopefully next Wed eve.

You're pissed Larson hasn't poached guys he recruited? Really?

So far we've lost a high school sophomore and junior. I'm sure there are guys in those classes that would love to come here that you could sell to fans as decent replacments but we have a long time before we actually need to replace them. If we come up a little short in the replacements it's no disaster. If we didn't have Ryan poeling and had to replace him his final year of high school we would still be a nchc contender.

I don't want to rip fans as I totally understand it, but I don't think the constant shots at coach Motzko are good for the Husky program. He was going to bring some recruits with him we all knew that all along. He was probably going to take the higher paying job if offered we all knew that all along. I get that the shouting match with Jim Montgomery in hindsight is a bad look, and little things like either doing the coaches show or being honest about why he didn't would have helped. Maybe bob is doing things on purpose to recreate the rivalry that many of us agreed is pretty non existent prior to Bob taking that job. I was hopeful that after some time Husky fans would move on to some extent but I don't know if Husky fans will be able to not emberass themselves even if the Motzko return doesn't happen until season 3. I hope future recruits don't see these things. Bob Motzko was a great coach here and deserves more respect then he's getting #InBbItrust
