    Stuff has sure changed from when the bad guy was over there and we advanced on him so that he could die for his country instead of us dying for ours

    The articles in this magazine cover in depth the NYPD preparations for NY Eve in Times Square (thousands of officers involved), the FBI bomb training school, and the forensic lab for bombings.

    Sean Greene needs to join him – faced 3 batters a grounder to 1st, a single, and a walk on 5 pitches. Wunderkind finally replaced him after the walk

    It’s official …

    Danton Cole

      Quotes from the Danton Cole presser this afternoon …

      MSU Board of Trustees member Melanie Foster: “Danton Cole understands the greatness of MSU hockey.”

      MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon: “This is a decision that reflects (Hollis’) head & his heart.”

      President Simon: “We’re confident this will be a new era of success for Michigan State hockey.”

      MSU AD Mark Hollis said it took 21 days to hire a new coach. Said he asked players what they wanted in a coach. Danton Cole hit all the benchmarks.

      Danton Cole
      “It’s good to be coming back home again.”

      “Mom, Dad, sister are all MSU grads – they are great Spartans.”

      “I’ll steal a joke from Jud (Heathcote): ‘I’ve been happily married for 26 years. She’s been happily married for probably about 15.’ ”

      “A lot of emotions stepping back in the MSU locker room. It was all I could do to stop busting out the fight song.”

      “Munn Ice Arena was a snake pit. And that’s how it’s gotta be.”

      Said he plans some changes structurally. “Probably the hardest part. Then year over year, it’s easier.”

      Cole says style of play will be “abrasive, aggressive, ornery. I want to impose my will physically & mentally on the other team.”

      “Let’s put a system in place of excellence … That’s culture, that’s program.”

      “There’s some great things here, places we want to get to. May not be the easiest thing, but nothing worth having ever is.”

      Talked about first winning Big Ten playoff rounds, then titles. “Then you get in the NCAA, you’re 4 wins away.”

      “Let’s get to work.”

      Talking to the Team

        Nice post, IB !!!
        Thanks.

          Agreed, very informative of what we can expect

        Here is the official site’s write-up on the Cole announcement:
        http://www.msuspartans.com/sports/m-hockey/spec-rel/041117aab.html

        Among the desirable qualities players voiced for a head coach: “(A)pproachable, NHL experience,” and an “ability to develop players.”

        We should acknowledge that Anastos’ last two recruiting classes were very promising; I think we will see this hire bear fruit before the B1G season starts.

        Great news confirming the Cole hire, and comprehensive information about it. Thank you!

    (For those that have access to it, the ACC has a network auxiliary that is televising the game.)

    * Tomorrow’s Softball game is at Michigan due to flooding at what is being called Lake Jenison.

    * If the fields can dry quickly enough, baseball [v. OSU] and softball [v. IL] are scheduled for home this weekend.

    I have never ever seen a sports figure more maligned and underappreciated than rick comley. you know, the guy with the same amount of national titles at MSU as ron mason. couch’s recent hack job still blames comley for anastos’ six years of futility.

    I am getting Rod and Mario on MLBN

    AND Fulmer is struggling 70+ pitches through 3 innings and 3 runs and the wunderkind hasn’t made a move yet.
