    1-7-2 over their last ten games and coach Owens keeps talking about “getting over a hump”. Well coach the hump just snowballed into a lost season with no chance of recovery. CC will have to play UNO and UND on the road after the break meaning a realistic shot of an 0-4-0 outcome. If CC cannot sweep those games the season is DONE.

    In reality it is already over and this team is just playing out the remaining games. May as well put in the freshman and let them gain some experience for next season. This coach really needs to find a new line of work.

    At least Denver is struggling too. I hope they still stink when CC visits them again so we can at least have a chance at keeping the pan. That would mean a sweep though, a tall order indeed.

    This season is done. It’s worse than just this season. Against the future NCHC teams we are 1-5 so far this year. Last year we went 5-9 against NCHC teams — with great talent. Blowing about “winning seasons” is a bunch of smoke. Starting next year it’s going to be very different and CC needs to decide if being a conference bottom dweller is good enough. Owens is probably the nicest coach in D1 hockey and a great recruiter, but he is not getting the job done any more and I’m not sure I can justify the money for season tickets again when a talented team becomes a train wreck, season after season. I know Cary Eades left ND and Mike Guentzel is probably ready for a head coaching job… it’d be nice to give one of them a shot.

      Eric Rud needs to be considered as well. I believe he will probably be offered a head coaching spot somewhere else this off season and will probably take it. Eric would be a good choice for CC but he probably won’t get the chance.
