    What an insanely bizarre post.
    100%. Agree that Bleed doesn't take sides for the most part except that I believe he wants whats best for the program in season. Secondly, Bleed finds many articles of interest that I would have never read if it weren't for him. Keep up the good work Bleed! We have your back!

    THE NERVE of some people.
    Thanks Bleed.
    For the record, the only place year zero exists is Flecks mind. Fleck didnít have a year zero. Motzko doesnít get one, either.

    Motzko was a convenient, ďsafeĒ, uninspired hire. Absolute high point we can aspire to is being ranked #1 in a region and lose the first game. Motzko will not win a championship at Minnesota.

    Are you going to tell us who the inconvenient, "unsafe", inspired hire that they should have gone with was?

    Iíd start with someone that wouldnít drop three of four games to Michigan State.

    Unlike basketball and football, coaching Hockey at Minnesota is a destination job. There are very few coaches that wouldnít listen if we called.

    Of course having an AD that can string together coherent sentences would probably help.

    If we want to fix what happened, you need to fire Coyle and Kaler as well.

    Yep. Nice comment from The blow hard thatís ready with the reason why any name I might mention sucks.

    Pointless conjecture at this point. Motzkoís our coach. And we get what we get. Iíd call him the has been from Jan Brady U, but he never was.....

    You and Magpie (if you are not the same person) are constantly posting negative stuff about the AD, coaches, and programs. Almost seems troll like.

    Not the same person.

    Our AD is not very good at his job. So no. I donít like him. His coaching hires will play out. Iím not impressed by Fleck. Time will tell if his schtick will translate to success.

    Motzko was an uninspired hire.

    If having those opinions makes me a troll, so be it.

    Hey punk, name a better hire then. You couldnít hold Coyleís coffee. If youíre going to come across like you are, name the names, otherwise you look like a total a$$hat.

    Actually, the football team already did something "of note" by beating the Badgers at Camp Randall for the first time since 1994 and by beating Georgia Tech by the largest margin of victory in a bowl game in Minnesota history. (this includes 20 bowl appearances dating back to 1961) And, by the way, the hockey team is not in competition with the football team. Personally, I think the Gophers have the right coaches in place in BOTH of these sports. Give Motzko a few years to recruit his style of players in and I think we'll be just fine. I also think the football team will be Rose Bowl bound within the next 2 years as well. Fingers crossed for both programs.

You can already see better team effort this year than in the last few Lucia years when he should have been gone already. Last game was their best performance of the year.

    They might not make the tournament this year. If they do I'd give him an A for his first year no doubt. As of right now, it is a solid B with flashes of good things. He is draining the swamp in the recruiting pipeline and not scared to call out his players which he's done multiple times.
    I see what you did there. Totally agree.

    I can't stand Coyle but Motzko was a great hire. It was a no-brainer though. Any AD with an ounce of intelligence would have hired Motzko. Give it a couple years - he'll have Gopher hockey contending for a national title.

    I think Coyle has done a great job with his hires.

    Eggum has got wrestling back to at least respectability in the B1G.
    While Trachsel has some detractors, she has kept the softball team in the upper tier in the B1G and ranked nationally.
    Whalen is Whalen. She has shown an ability to change (although the delay of changing to a 4-guard set might have cost a couple wins).
    Fleck & Motzko were no-brainer hires.

    Good hiring decisions, but the decision making around ticket prices and gouging the dwindling customer base at Mariucci has been pathetic.
