  • Fred Pletsch Named New CCHA Commissioner

    The league announced that interim commisioner Fred Pletsch has been given the full reins. This is probably the best hire for the league at this time. I just hope that those schools that are bailing out did not get to vote!

    I'd like to know the length of his contract. Will he still be the commissioner when the B1G teams leave?

    Hopefully this season we can start to gear up for a CCHA without the B1G schools; and have Fred show his commitment to the remaining schools.

      I would hope that he got at least a five year contract. One thing the CCHA needs right now is some stability.

        I'll just say I'm not exactly enthused about Anastos' right hand man being given the reigns.

        And why the hell are the league meetings for a Michigan/Indiana/Ohio centered conference that isn't making money hand over fist in Naples, Florida?

            All leagues/conferences/divisions/NCAA/ACHA are held once a year in Naples.

              I'm trying to remember where I found it, but I saw earlier today that its a 2 year deal.

                So who would your top candidates have been?

                  Talked with Fred yesterday, he confirmed it was a two-year deal.

                      The fact that it is only a two year deal doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the future of the league.

                          No. It doesn't, and that worries me.

                          WCHA already did call. Our AD politely declined.

                              Just tell the teams it's everyone for themselves and we can skip the league meetings for the next two years. All we're missing is information that the lease on the league's offices ends in 2013.
