Another big name in local sports has left—just heard on the radio that Ron Mason has died.

The 90's and very early 2000's were a great time for the Michigan-MSU Hockey rivalry. Mason was one heck of a coach, and was hired to do a lot when he became AD.

It's sad that he had to see his program diminish the way it did in his last few years.  He deserved better than that...  RIP, Mr Mason.

Was always impressed with what he did with MSU's hockey program.  I remember a couple matchups between UM/MSU at the GLI that were always hard fought affairs.  My condolences to his family, friends and yes, the MSU hockey community.

My heart and prayers go out to his family & friends. In 2001 I was at the Great Lakes Tourney too bad it wasn't MSU VS Michigan Championship Game.
