    Based on what the President of the CCHA said in an interview late last year with USCHO UAH has a really good chamce to get in, believe it or not. Like you said it would be the 2011-2012 season before they would be admitted and 2012-2013 season before conference play would be a factor! At least this is the way the CCHA prez talked in the interview!
    Do they have specific guidance on why they were rejected and what they can do to change it?

    We missed the banquet. We scheduled our spring travels to accommodate the original 4/30 date for the banquet and have just returned.

    Most conferences will ban a team from its postseason tournament if that team is also ineligible for the NCAA tournament, for the exact reasons already mentioned (automatic qualifiers).

Now, sure, folks will understand if we break contracts because we suddenly got back into a league, but it's not just our schedules that have to be flexible. That's why I figure UAH has two years, at minimum, of being an indie.

    Hey Geoff,

    Sheila Ray, says you are a great guy to talk to about UAH Hockey. You probably already know that, but thought I'd tell you anyway. Talked too her today when I went out to donate some more money!

    The NCAA put RIT in the probationary period of 2 years, I'm guessing because of the move from D-III.
    The AHA was willing to make RIT eligible in its first year of conference play.
    I'm not sure why the Tigers had to play one Independent year first, however.

    Not necessarily. Those kinds of rules are usually set by each conference. They could all be different, in theory. When RIT transitioned from their one year as a D-I Independent to their first year in the AHA, they could have been eligible to play in the AHA Tournament, but chose not to based on their NCAA ineligibility (just in case they had won, it would have confused the Auto-bid selection for AHA).

    That doesn't sound good when you say at least two years as an independent. Won't that be very tough for recruiting?

    I think it's because a year is spent as an independent D-I team. There must be some clause where if you are immediately switching from one official league to another, that you are automatically welcome to participate in the post-season, but any team coming from independent to a league must wait a year.

    Conference schedules are usually made several years out to ensure that every team visits every other team an equal number of times (or as near as possible) before upsetting the apple cart.
    The exception to this is the 2010-11 CCHA schedule, which was in flux for much of the season.

    Plus, as Geof-fa-fa said, we will want to fulfill our independent game contracts prior to having said opportunities gutted as a part of a conference (NTTAWWT).

I know with the ECAC, when Quinnipiac went from Atlantic to ECAC, they were allowed to participate in the post-season that year. I'm guessing there is a similar predicament happening with Bemidji and their move to the WCHA.
