  • UAH Hockey is on the precipice. Please tell our President to step off.

    http://www.change.org/petitions/uah-...-on-and-thrive

    Here's background: we've had two big changes in the administration at UAH within the last year. Our athletic director passed away in December, and then our university president was run out on a rail in March. [I've never been sure why, but I think it was his free-spending ways.] Now the UA System Chancellor, Mack Portera, is acting as interim president. He's making lot of changes on campus, and one of them that he's swiftly seeking to make is the elimination of varsity hockey after the 2011-12 season. Just at the point where it seems a conference home could be found, this dingbat is going around lying and saying that the expansion fee to get into any league would be $500,000 or more. He ignores the fact that the CCHA fee in 2009 would have been $250k, and that's with the BTHC teams involved in that league. Maybe it's as expensive to get into the WCHA, but I doubt it'll be twice as expensive. He's telling a number of other lies as well, but this one is the one that the wider college hockey community is telling.

    Speaking of that college hockey community: we hear a lot about how everyone wants to keep UAH going on. Few of you are in a position to directly affect these decisions, but we're all in a position to have our voice heard. I would dearly appreciate it if you'd take the time to sign the petition I linked above to show your support for another member of the college hockey community.

    Thanks.

        Signed - but you may want to pass along this bit as far as WCHA entry fees:

        (BGSU AD Greg) Christopher said an admission fee hasn’t been discussed in detail, but said the WCHA entry fee is typically one-tenth of the league’s budget that season. He estimated that to be about $50,000-75,000.

                      Thanks, Moose. Also, thanks to all of you. It's been good to watch that counter tick ever higher.
