    And that's why they aren't premier programs. I went to school for most of the years required to become a doctor. Doesn't mean I'm a doctor.

      My point is no matter what you label it, they are two of the top programs in CH. And as soon either of them wins a title (and Jackson will very very soon) they meet the subjective criteria set by ecbrevik.

          multiple = more then one.

          they may be two of the better teams currently, but a `5 year run without any national titles does not a premier team make.

          ND winning a title is FAR from an inevitability in the next 5 to 10 years.

            You guys, these programs aren't being included in DG's made-up conference because they are premier programs.

            They're being included because THEY HAVE MONEY.

                I've never heard of us saying we won't play a team with a hostile or abusive nickname. I think we're more LIKELY to schedule then, that way we can get people to come out and protest.

                  Edit: Hey, while we're throwing **** on the wall to see what sticks- might as well just throw in the other Patriot League schools with Colgate (Holy Cross, Army... Navy?) and have a Liberty-Patriot Hockey League.
                  Not sure what Lerch wrote, but I do think that there has potential for a Liberty/Empire League. RIT recently changed conference affiliations to the Liberty League in various sports (not sure if all that the Liberty League sponsers). I think RIT might look to change conference affiliation when the new arena is built. I have heard rumors of realignment from a member of RIT's athletic department.

                    So I misspelled a name, that's my bad... But a name? Names are so often esoteric, certainly you can be a little less of a d-head over that.

                      And between my own work and watching my three year olds at the same time, proofreading on a college hockey forum is hardly my highest priority... Even if it is the most important thing in your life what with your 11K posts and all!! ;-)

                      This is just a diversion for me.

                        Wow, bringing out the post count already. Yeah, UMDBHIK's 3.5 posts per day and my 6.8 posts per day make it impossible for us to do anything else in life. That's a solid 4-7 minutes of work, that might become 5-8 if one knows how to spell. Hell, my browser does it for me.

                          What a lot of people don't understand is that the individual Big Ten teams currently playing in the WCHA and CCHA don't have a choice in the matter. The Big Ten has told them that there's a Big Ten league and that's that.

                          but the LL is a D-III league. Don't think it will export to D-I (until they all get booted out of D-I)

                          That's not what we are saying. LL is forming for all sports EXCEPT hockey at this point. However, with those five teams having rivalries built, it could make sense to add Colgate and upgrade to DI hockey, especially since it would be a six-team league with an autobid
