  • Fear the ACCHC

    With all the realignment coming with the ACC, its time to talk about the ACC Hockey Conference. Notre Dame and UConn are rumored to be heading to the ACC joining Boston College and with Syracuse being on the short list of colleges most likely to start up D-1 Hockey...that leaves the ACC only two teams short of the minimum for a conference. Its time to get serious about this.

      Once BC leaves HE for the ACCHC the remaing powers in HE will form the Super National Hockey Association. It is the only logical step

        Re: Fear the ACCHC

        Assumptions:
        -The ACC wants to even get into hockey --> debatable, do people watching the ACC Network (which doesn't exist yet in any type of national format like the Big10 Network) care about hockey?
        -ND going to the ACC --> less than 50% chance but I'd say generally unlikely but not impossible
        - Uconn going to the ACC --> even more unlikely (Rutgers more probable?)
        - Cuse going D1 in hockey --> certainly possible, explored several times but shot down each time
        - Pitt going D1 in hockey --> meh... not likely but not impossible.
        - Another existing ACC school going D1 in hockey (VTech or UVA or UMD?) --> pretty darn unlikely
        - The ACC starting a league with BC, Notre Dame, and some other combination of 4 other teams that will all be startups (simultaneously or staggered by a few years each?) or just lowlifes like the current Uconn situation --> probably zip.
        - Boston College agreeing to this if it's not already something that's been agreed to (which is unlikely IMO) --> probably close to zip under the above scenario.


        Not exactly like the situation the Big 10 has. Everything made some sense and was workable. An ACC hockey conference would be a steaming pile of monkey dung for a long time. It makes no sense from any angle.

        I'm glad we had this discussion. Hopefully that is the beginning and end of the talk (especially referencing "rumors").

        When it becomes more than .01% likely let's revive this thread. Deal?

        The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

            While there is no ACCHC (at least not yet), there actually is an ACCHA....at the club level.

              ND is funding their transition to D1. Swarbrick is going to be the ACCHC commish. I heard it from a guy.

                Well, Your Honor. We've got plenty of hearsay and conjecture. Those are kinds of evidence.

                      I warned everyone way back a year ago! While UConn jumped ship to Hockey East...if these club schools like Clemson and Syracuse get off the ground, we are only a few schools shy of a conference. Be wary my friends.

                        I think that you got the title of the thread wrong. It's not going to be the ACCHC, but rather Hockey-ACC or the HACC.

                            Syracuse had to dump men's sports and bring on women's hockey just to become Title IX compliant. They're not going D-I with the men any time soon.
