    Great – Now we can hang in mediocrity forever. He is a great guy, but the BC and BU guys have forgotten more than he will ever know.

    If this is true, I am really Bummed

    USHR has confirmed through well-placed sources that UNH associate head coach Scott Borek interviewed at UMass today.

    I know all of our opinions don’t matter at all in the grand scheme of things – but we appreciate the opportunity to express them. I have to agree that I don’t get why anyone would announce that the job was offered unless they knew the candidate was going to accept, especially after being left at the altar twice. Having said that, I think Carlson is a better choice than either of the two guys who turned it down. He’s been one of the best coaches in the USHL for many years and this would be a natural progression for this particular coach. Let’s hope he’s the guy and the program can move forward.

        What do you guys really expect the players to say? They have to be politically correct to please everyone. Kudos to Rocco for at least hinting to all of the issues the players had to deal with. It was alot worse

        • I was expressing surprise that Rocco said what he did (because a lot of players wouldn’t). I wasn’t disputing the content of his quotes. For those who follow closely, there wasn’t anything not heard before.

          All I said was the quotes were “must read”. If we can ever settle this coaching search is like to revisit them some day. And not to knock Rocco.

    Seriously, do ur homework. Borek is a “go getter” and will put his life on the line for his team…..if that’s not what u mass needs what is it!? There isn’t a better fit- if u want a recruiting mad dog- he’s it- that’s what we need…
