    it's not just frowned upon - you don't get two bids unless you split into two totally separate and unconnected conferences as the WAC did when it split into the MWC.

      As a downstater, stopping in Cleveland for anything is considered ill-advised.

        Amen!

        But gained a bit of appreciation - albeit not much - for Cleveland when the kid played there a couple seasons.

        And I had my share of Beavercreek/Dayton...you know, join the Air Force to see the world, got stationed @ WPAFB for 7 years...lol

          I don't believe I could rate Cincinnati any higher than Cleveland though.

            That's why we were there from 1983-91.

              That said, we've got to have some home games. What's the point in having a team if they're never here in Huntsville?

              Solution: Drop the affiliation with UAH, and become "America's Team." No home games. Travel time for the CCHA teams? None! Arena? Yost, Munn, Joyce, VCA, etc.

                I actually like this idea. It would make up for the mid to late '90's (click on any season from '94-95 to '98-'99) when UAH had an average of 22 home games and 5 road games a year...
                Current NCAA D-I rinks I've been to:

                AHA:
                B1G: UMinn, UWisc
                ECAC:
                HEA: UMass, Notre Dame
                NCHC: UMD, UND, SCSU, WMU
                WCHA: UAH, BSU, FSU, LSSU, MSU, MTU, NMU

                      Didn't know you said it. I assumed that someone did at this point, but didn't bother checking.

                        People who insult Cleveland, Geof, don't understand the pure awesome of it.

                        100" of snow every year? Yep. Three seasons - winter, almost winter, and hot and humid? Yep. Great food- oh God yes.

                        If someone's visiting, stop in at these three places: Slyman's (best corned beef sandwiches outside of the Carnegie Deli, and sometimes better), Aladdin's Baking Company (best pocket pita I've had in the US), and Alesci's Deli... which I have been missing since I left to go to Ohio State and I still import their wares to Alabama.

                        I'd love to have any of those three places nearby every day of the year, and I haven't found anything like it anywhere else I've lived. Huntsville doesn't even know what a deli is... there isn't one in the entire county (deli counters in supermarkets don't count).

                        Sounds like you and me need to go to Cleveland some time and get some good food together.

                            This describes MN, which is a much better place. With better hockey, too. Despite SCSU. And Mankato. And tUMD.
                            Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                              Maybe Moose can answer this. Are there any of those shirts laying around that a guy might be able to purchase one. I have seen a few them around Bemidji but haven't been able to purchase one.
