From the National Letter of intent website "The NLI is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution

A prospective student-athlete agrees to attend the institution full-time for one academic year (two semesters or three quarters).
The institution agrees to provide athletics financial aid for one academic year (two semesters or three quarters)."

College Hockey, INC says that a NLI is not required to play. So that is what I found out........

It's probably not required if the player isn't on scholly ... otherwise I think it is required. But what do I know!?

The NLI is just a process for recruiting. Lots of scholarship D-1 hockey players never sign NLIs.

Okay, that settles that! Thank you.

Suze, it looks like the next big news was in Basketball. UAA hired a firm to handle the GCI G.A.S.

But my email from Hackett read: "We also have a pair of very big announcements related to Seawolf Hockey that will come in the next few weeks so stay tuned".

As far as Mactavish is concerned, I am sure UAA is dotting all their i's and crossing all their t's. Chris Heisenberg's site says he committed on July 30, so that isn't very long ago. The elite prospects site lists him coming to UAA (http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=79608&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter), and Hockey Transfers @ Elite Transfers tweeted "Sean MacTavish (F) from Lincoln Stars to Univ. of Alaska-Anchorage".

The reno at the Farg should make it on par with other schools facilities, but the Sully still won't be.

Hey Suze~

I was driving down Lake Otis towards S. Anchorage last night and it was so sunny (9pm-ish) and the mountains looked incredible... so I decided to turn onto University Drive and check out that new arch (pedestrian bridge) that crosses over just past Seawolf Drive. BTW, it's pretty neat looking now that it's just about done. :) I like how they designed it so that it doesn't obstruct the mountains at all.

Then I did a looptie-loop and figured I'd go check out the Wells Fargo. Walking up, I noticed they haven't started doing anything to the outdoor area of the daycare center yet. Several pieces of playground equipment are still there, but I don't know what they plan for that area and maybe it's a long term project?

I stopped to admire the seriously overloaded crabapple trees at the front door area, then noticed a "Closed until Thursday, August 20" sign at the entry. It was Wednesday night... but the doors were unlocked, so I went in.

I figured if one of the UAA cops showed up, I'd blame it on DD somehow. Tell them he sent me over there for a scoop or something.. :D

Wow. The place is still in shambles! The ice arena is torn down to the foundation and there are building supplies EVERYWHERE. Someone from Transportation told me that everyone with offices in there were over at the Alaska Airlines Center and I can see why.. There are building materials from one end of the place to the other!

The staircase that goes down to the locker rooms and fitness centers is blocked off by a massive wood barrier and it's impossible to see what they're doing down there. I was hoping they had started to do something with that concrete flooring upstairs, but not yet.

I sure don't know what time schedule they have, but right now.. they have a LOT of work to do!

If anyone is planning to go to Campus Kickoff Saturday, check out the garden in front of Rasmussen Hall! What a STELLAR job!! If I knew how to add pictures on here, I'd include one, but.. O'well.. :o Also, that metal sculpture as you enter the Wells Fargo Center's parking area.. I knew it had lights on it, but is the fountain on it new? If it's not, I guess I never noticed it before.. LOL.

Hey there AlaskaRox! That's too bad that there hasn't been more done on the Farg, but the note from Hackett said to check it out when they have the Green & Gold game, so they better get a move on!

So where will the team be practicing, at least their Captain's practices?

For those of you who do Facebook, there are some good pics of the Farg that were posted today:

They tweeted em out too, so I just saw them over there.

Hmm. Maybe the Boeke? Dempsey? O'Malley? Rotate between all three?

Should be interesting.. ;)

I wonder if they are behind at the WFSC. However, the remodel is supposed to be pretty extensive, so I understand that it is still not done. There is ice all around the city, so I would probably think the team would practice like at the Dempsey Anderson or the place next to the Sullivan. Both places (Sullivan and WFSC) should be fantastic when completed.

Also, Suze, how do you know they are NOT building a place for color commentary? I think the plans had some kind of new press box for the Sullivan. I remember reading that somewhere. We just have to wait until the Sullivan Arena is complete! I just wish the color was Dark Green and Grey like originally planned!

Well, I don't know for sure. But I have the scope of work from the Muni, and there was nothing about adding a press box or box seating.

Article by Doyle Woody last Friday...says shake up in the UAA Hockey Roster includes addition of another goalie, Evan Hauser, evidently a goalie recruit proved to be ineligible. The roster has not changed as of today and I believe today school starts........

has anyone heard if Sean MacTavish is in town? I think I read that they are supposed to be in town this week. Just curious, he has not been added to the roster.

MacTavish is now on the roster. :)
