I don't know whether this program can be brought back to relevance at this point or not but unless there is some major change in direction to create enthusiasm and excitement in Canisius basketball the slow death of a once great program will continue. I realize there are great challenges facing our very existence and budgets are being squeezed to the last dollar but this very well may be that situation where if we believe mens basketball is the face of the school then we need to pay for a coach who will give us a chance at not just success but who might be able to reinvigorate the Canisius community and and bring back some PRIDE in who we are! If our leaders feel basketball is no longer a key ingredient to the success of the school then it is time to consider seriously whether we should remain as a D1 school or not, we just can't continue on the same path any longer !

As discussed in the past, if Canisius does opt to downgrade to DII or DIII, I would hope they would see if they could maintain a DI hockey program - and invest even more in recruiting, coaching, marketing, fan/alumni engagement, resources, training staff, etc.

Go ALL OUT in the hockey investment and make CC a hockey school. It won't get the national attention that basketball does - but basketball really is not doing that now anyway. I rather the school be GREAT at one sport and continue to invest in academics and further improving the quality of the campus in order to attract more students.

If CC does it right, they could crate a real pipeline to the AHL / NHL, benefit from Canadian recruiting and hopefully create a product and environment that students, alum and people from Buffalo can get behind.

Rather have a top 10 hockey program than a bottom 50 basketball program.
