This feels like the end.
Yes it does.  Snyder is last to go and then a dawn of a new era happens overnight.

None of these coaches would be "retiring" if it wasn't the end.

Just the opposite, actually.  If Snyder was retiring, there would be no need for these other guys to do so.  The new coach would bring in his own staff and most of these guys would retire at that point.

I think Hayes and Miller were/are ready to go; I think Snyder thinks he has one more run, and realizes he needs some more youth/energy on his staff.  So the feelings are mutual.  (Maybe not with Mo, though, who seems to not realize that he can either "retire" or be escorted to the door.)

I think losing Miller, Hayes, and Mo while retaining Snyder, Dimel, and Coleman is literally the perfect scenario.  Especially if the replacement for Hayes is Leavitt or Venebles.

See, I'd have to disagree with you. I believe it's Snyder's final gift to "his guys". If Snyder retires then most likely the coaches don't get a nice parachute on the way outn so Snyder is hooking them up before he loses control. I believe he's giving Klein a seat at the table to help him land on any new coaching staff that comes in.

Now, my guess is that if Snyder does not step down or retire within the next week then he's probably on for one more season like most everyone has speculated.

We will just have to wait and see.

Do you think Klein would accept a position for a coach that was about to retire, knowing that he might not be retained by the new coach?  I wouldn't do that if I were Klein.

I wonder there was kind of assurance that their status with the program is NOT linked to Coach Snyder being HC (i.e. someone as a HCIW inside Vainer, OR, someone who is as a HC potential that is not currently in Vainer.)

Or maybe he was given a chance to take another step up the coaching ladder and come back to his alma mater and he took it knowing that if Snyder retires there's a chance he stays on with the new coach and worse case he finds a relatively comparable position somewhere else.

They're still getting relegated

Will be closer to top 10 than relegation

Worst jerseys since the rebrand but still much better than most MLS kits.

Fister and Carter would be waaaayyyy better than Moss and Fat Hochever, would have left money over to buy a decent relief pitcher. DM has lost his goddamn mind.

Dominate the first half but only get one goal. Give up a few chances and one goal in the second at home to a bad team. Typical city

I'm saying right now, that at the end of next season Silmon will have more rushing yards than Barnes.

If you've paid attention to this coaching staff, that is in no way an indication of who's better

For everyone who left the Swans for dead. Won 2 straight, still only one spot off drop zone, but tied in points with the next 2 up. Next 3 games: Man City, Foxes, Chelz but after that a very winnable stretch of Burnley, Hull, Bournemouth, and Middlesbrough.

Green is from Oregon and was "expected" to sign with Oregon St or Utah. Both happen to be conference rivals of Oregon. Oregon's new D.C. has an out clause for KState :Rusty:

I will never complain about a commitment from DeSoto (TX) HS

I'm trying to avoid social media and news coverage today because I don't want to start crying at work, but I do have to unload a few thoughts and I know many of you here "get it".

To many it seems irrational to be this emotional about the death of someone who I never met in person or communicated with at all, but it's not. As I shared when the Royals won the World Series, Royals baseball figures heavily in some of my earliest childhood memories and connections with friends and family no longer with us. These Royals teams the last few years have been so much fun to be a fan of. The same reason we loved them is the same reason fans of other teams hated them. They play with a high level of emotion and carried that over to their interactions off the field as well. While many call it immature, those of us who follow closely see it as what it really is, a close knit group of players having fun playing a game, but still wanting to win. Most of us here have experienced that at some point in our lives and these Royals teams have reminded us of that.

Yordano was one of the biggest examples of this. He have been one of the smallest players, but his fire and his talent where disproportionately huge. He may have needed to harness them a little more to have become a truely great player, but that doesn't change the fact that they where there. We as fans have had the opportunity to follow his development through the minor leagues. I remember how excited I was when I found out one of the games I was planning to attend ended up being one of his first home starts. I believe he got lit up that day, but I know I have never had as much fun watching a professional pitcher as I did Yordano. Every pitch was an event worth seeing.

I believe that without Yordano the Royals do not win the WS in '15, so even if nothing else I've said was true, for that I will be ever grateful to him for. I hate that we will never again get to see him pitch and see what he could have become as both a player and person. My heart hurts for Yordano, for his family, for the players that where as close or closer than family, and for my fellow fans that feel how I do.

RIP Ace

In that 247 video he reminds me a little of a poor man's Elijah Lee. Not saying he'll ever amount to anything but he fits the Snyder 2.0 recruit profile.

looks like we got danny walker

Any reason to be optimistic? (serious question) Because his offer list sucks.

I mean, sure, if you've followed this program at all for any period of time there's reasons to be at least a smidge optimistic

Rumors that Patterson wasn't happy with him.

Whatevs, Blue Wings Rising! 

RCJHKU!!!!

Patterson is just another farm humping grape. Obviously not as much as the Harvard of the Plains. RHJHKU

I just hope we're not stuck in no mans land at the trade deadline. All in or blow it up.

This staff does a good job of identifying players that fit within their system. Generally they prefer to do it with kids that aren't as high profile for one reason or another. Many of those types will never be more than bit players and practice fodder, but these coaches do a great job of getting a better success rate than most programs from those types of players.

We can debate all we want about the reasons they tend to shy away from higher profile players but it's obviously not going to change as long as Snyder is in charge. You can choose to look at that as a positive or a negative but it is what it is and honestly not really worth having a 5-10 page argument every time we lose a player.

If you hate Sean you hate K-State, and if you hate K-State, you hate America. And if you hate America, well, you can just git out.

Holy crap, I have no recollection of making this post :love:

Chargers will be using the StubHub Center for 2 years. lol

It's like a twilight zone episode where we entered some alternate dimension

23
Well our current coach could literally die on the sideline and I don't think anyone would be all that shocked so...

24
Invite every country there is and let's turn this thing into a year-long celebration of life.

Honestly they're not too off from just needing to eliminate the term qualifier and create groups/regions by rankings instead of continent

25
And yea, WCQ for the US will be a joke. Might as well play the U-23s in it.
