Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

Sky and NB, Right on!!! =D> I don't think we should gloat, but I certainly think the entire university must take STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE of this situation. In athletics this means looking at their rosters for possible transfers, see what sponsors we could steal, etc. I look at this like a big yard sale ...

Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

I also think this is the perfect opportunity for CCSU to fundraise and see if the can reinstate both Men's and Women's golf. Hartford did have a pretty strong men's golf program and put a few alumni on tour. It was tragic that CCSU had to drop these teams despite the relative success we had in both ...

Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

I would love to see CCSU, the NEC, and America East come to an agreement that would allow Central to join America East and keep football in the NEC as an associate member. With the University of New Haven announcing their intentions to join D-I, the NEC has another school ready to backfill if CCSU w...

How soon can we steal their hashtag :)

Also, maybe Sellers can see if there are any returning players for the Hawks that want to take their talents to New Britain.

Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

I don't think that it is a good move for the UofH. Who knows, but their problems are a lot more serious than athletics. If they don't do something dramatic to address declining enrollment and increasing expenses, they won't be a university for much longer. Clearly, some "peers" like Quinnipiac, Sac...

Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

Unreal! Now, how might this impact CCSU? Will the America East look to recruit CCSU? We seem to be a perfect fit other than we would need to find a home for football? Would joining the AE, in the long run, would be more cost beneficial, in terms of transportation costs? Way too early to think about...

Re: Big Board!

I think a few posters alluded to the delay in an official announcement. Because of what happened last time, this current regime is doing everything by the books (a very good thing). I think they are just finalizing the required state and university hiring process - but we have our coach - Pat Seller...

Re: Big Board!

Hearing there are some final steps in the process (nothing out of the norm) before the school can announce. Expect the press conference next week. Can confirm the selection is made and details have been negotiated and agreed to. No one else was offered, they are just processing paperwork at this sta...

Re: Big Board!

Yep, we got a very good one. Someone who knows what it takes to win here and will do everything to rebuild this program the right way. Sellers has a great reputation for recruiting everywhere he's been. With the portal and larger and untapped market for high school recruits, plus Juco and D-II trans...

Re: Big Board!

I just think it had to do with the state university system being a cluster as opposed to ccsu. If we could just find one of those bottles with a 🧞‍♂️ in it, we could wish to be Connecticut State. Good ol State U! I heard a rumor that the job was offered to someone else, and that someone else turned...

Re: Big Board!

4 people on a message board and 2 people on twitter doesn't make this a disgrace or an undesirable job. All of the candidates knew the amount of hoops that would need to be jumped through. As far as I've heard, the process is on track, and as JJ said we will all be celebrating soon enough. As for m...

Re: Big Board!

I don't disagree with anyone that there should be a quicker process, but this isn't as bad as we think. Other than the Dickenman hiring, which was planned behind the scenes and implemented in just days, previous vacancies take about 2 months to fill. Bottom line, this is not news - this is just par ...

Re: Big Board!

The only thing that can really put this process into perspective is the fact that UConn hasn't announced a new assistant yet. They generally announce the day the job comes down but it's been crickets for the whole week. Must have been something for the state to have many openings for basketball coa...

Re: Big Board!

I'm not making excuses for anything, as this last week or so has taken longer than I expected. However, there is light at the end of this tunnel (and it isn't an oncoming train)! Nothing but existing state and union bureaucratic process has dragged this on. I'm pretty confident there is no drama or ...
