    Post cards to all these people would be nice.

    No.

    If the schools are just voting on the bus trip, they will not be in favour. Hopefully, other factors will be considered.

    That sounds good!

    If the CCHA is going to accept UAH they may as well do so before the other schools leave and have a 12-team conference for 2012-2013.

    If the CCHA maintains a 28 game schedule with 8 or 9 teams, seven teams will have to make the trip. Most CCHA schools were not too upset over Omaha leaving because of the travel it entailed. Do you think either Northern Michigan (about 18 hours with meal stops) or Lake Superior (17 hours) are voting in favor of taking a two bus trip to get there, then not getting back til sometime late Sunday afternoon? Or how about the cost of flying?

    They actually might. They certainly haven't been afraid of airing non-B1G games (from what I've seen of past schedules), and it is available statewide on Comcast. It's an expense, sure, but it's one that the CCHA could (or should) easily be able to cover. And, there were plenty of times where the CCHA's Comcast 900 games were picked up by the FSN-College channels to be simulcast nationwide.

    Hell, the Chicago Wolves (AHL) paid for all 80 games to be televised on the local CN100 (Chicagoland's equivalent of CTV 900) for years before working in a deal with My50 Chicago for a dozen home games. If one team can afford to spend money as marketing on TV broadcasts, I would hope that the league would push for it too. It's a definite marketing arm to be able to tell member schools that you'll be seen on TV.

    MSU and Michigan will have all their non-conference Big Ten games on the local Fox Sports channel. The Big Ten network will only show member vs. member games in the coming years.

    No more CCHA games on tv. The only coverage the CCHA is going get is TV6 out of Marquette or on yooper tube.
