If you put UAH under Independent, you don't have UAH, PERIOD.

Forgive him, he's from CCT. I heard he had a few talks with Malcolm Portera. :eek::mad:

Davenport's letter to Fenton, from the GF Herald. (http://www.grandforksherald.com/sites/default/files/MSU-Mankato%20letter%20to%20NCHC.pdf)The letter starts: "With a request for your confidentiality..." and then follows the template the college hockey world has come to know as "Why Western?" or here are 20 really obvious facts about our team you already know, but we're going to remind you in writing so we seem super impressive on paper.

CliffsNotes version of the letter:

Hi NCHC -
Hope all is well with you. Just wanted to drop you a note with a couple really obvious, but fun facts about Purple Cow hockey that we cut and pasted into this letter from Wikipedia. We're so awesome. We won a lot of games since you all left us behind in the WCHA. We fixed up our rink. We have a nice hotel in town. We know how to travel by bus and planes so we can attend road games. We gave our coach a new contract. So much more to tell you so drop us a line when you have a minute. Please, please pick us. Please don't make us beg like St Cloud, but if we have to we will because we're just too good to stay in the WCHA any longer.
PS - We're "besties" with ASU and we don't even care that we'll have to go play road games in a rink that seats 700 fans.

You forgot the P.S..

P.S. Plus, it's fun to watch Michigan Tech - especially its fans - act all indignant and go off crying into the woods while acting superior for "choosing" to stay in this money pit league that is the current WCHA.

--------------------------

Everybody knows why they're making the move, and it's obvious why all the prior teams to join the conference made their moves, too. The writing was on the wall then, just as it is now, that the NCHC was a better platform for keeping athletic budgets either solvent or from going even deeper into the red.

You need to come to terms with the fact that MTU's administration hamstrung itself by becoming complacent with its subpar hockey teams over the course of 20-25 years, that putting subpar hockey teams on the ice caused attendance to drop for other schools to the point where MTU just became a burden on the old WCHA. When given the opportunity to make a move, why wouldn't the other schools drop MTU from their league schedule if they could?

IMHO, big mistake by MN State omitting a reminder about Mettlers. Might be holding in reserve to close the deal.

...it's fun to watch Michigan Tech - especially its fans - act all indignant and go off crying into the woods while acting superior for "choosing" to stay in this money pit league that is the current WCHA....putting subpar hockey teams on the ice caused attendance to drop for other schools to the point where MTU just became a burden on the old WCHAThat is so weird. I must have missed all the memos Tech has sent out over the years bemoaning how much money they were/are losing by playing in the WCHA. If you could just post a couple of those here we would appreciate it.

I guess on behalf of the WCHA's member teams I will apologize that the NCHC only has fair weather fans who can only be troubled to show up to a game when they like the name on the front of the other team's jerseys, rather than just showing up to support their own team regardless of who they play. Sorry you were "burdened" with playing Tech over the years but by all means enjoy playing ASU. I'm sure your rink will be packed when they come to town and the revenue their 700 seat rink will generate should really put the NCHC in the black.

PPS - Plus, it's fun to watch the NCHC - especially its fans - beat their chests and proclaim the superior qualities and financial windfall of their conference from the top of their gold filled coffers as they watch all their bridges to the rest of college hockey go up in flames. It's not like you can rebuild them because the golden goose UND only has one tree. Well, enjoy playing hockey on the Island of Like-Minded Hockey Elitists. Anyone with their eyes on the big pictures realizes that the NCHC needs college hockey as a whole more than college hockey needs the NCHC. When you step on everyone's toes as you climb, don't count on them to be there to catch you when you fall...

Can always count on a Tech fan to bring the butthurt to a thread when it comes to conference realignment discussion.

St Cloud: We're committed. We're committed. We're committed. See ya. At least Mankato State isn't singing "Doo Doo Doo Sneakin' out the back door..."

And we'd do it again...and so would any other school in the same position.

Yet who continues to **** and moan about being wronged? Textbook butthurt. "Dummy"

By the way, I said fans not teams. Not refuting the original teams of the NCHC were butthurt when the B1G hockey formed.

1. I apologize for hastily reading your original post as a status quo ante bellum and not a present condition. You have my apologies.

2. In no way do I believe that conference rearrangements were made to admit my alma mater. It helped things to be sure, but I doubt it was a thought of "let's take all the 'like-minded' schools out of the WCHA and CCHA, kill the CCHA, and surely they'll take Huntsville. We were, at best, a secondary concern. The CCHA had years to pick us up, even when it was clear that PSU was never going to join.

And WCHA 1.1 would have been worse than the current NCHC? (in BSU, MSU-M. out WMU, Miami)

Your stupid effing conference was called the BHHC before it had a name.
