    DU's bus rides have been all the way to Colorado Springs. Now they get to ride to Nebraska? What a prize

    Seriously, the CCHA may be acting without thought for College hockay as a whole. I think the WCHA was perfectly happy with a 10 team league, but knew with the demise of the CHA they had to act on Bemidji. And selfishly ddecided to go after UNO( which then left room for UAH in the CCHA.). I just didn't see a ground swell for UAF to join xcept from tDonald and now rms.

    But, why can't there be Division II Hockey? Cooperalls has some valid thoughts.
    Not Donald for sure. Wisconsin left though, and now UAF is possibly joining the WCHA........

    3.) If BG is hanging by a thread why didn't the CCHA come out and say something. Oh, like some of our member schools might be dropping hockey and we will wait until then to decide if we want to admit Uah.
    Still think zero chance for Wisconsin to leave the WCHA?

    Guess it wasn't that much of a joke.

    They did step in. They took BSU in when there was very little incentive to do so. Other schools applied to be a 12th program, and the WCHA took the best one. Where did they do something wrong?

    Nice one, Cheech.
    Weird Wisconsin left the WCHA......cheech!

Yeah, they're gonna **** away 4 games a year with Minnesota, rivalries like UND and UMD, and a conference that helps their PWR so much that they make the NCAAs without a .500 record.... that'll happen.
    They left!

    You're not playing us, because we're full already. Sorry. I'll edit with any more deletions due to already being full or anything along those lines.

    Also remember that the second USA U-18 game is not exempt; only one may be exempt. However, you guys should get all the games you can.

    Ahem.

    I expect that's "tentative" because:

    1. It's only 29 games, and I know that the goal was 32-34.
    2. The Nashville folks wanted to do another series at Bridgestone. The 2011-12 NHL schedule won't be out for a few weeks, though, and I'm sure the Nashville folks want to combine a two-game UAH series with a Saturday night Predators game. There's enough fire around them wanting to do a Regional and/or Frozen Four that they will want to keep that fire going, and putting UAH in it means they've got a better shot at getting the gate they want.
    3. The contracts aren't signed.
    4. No matter where that series is, I don't see not playing the second AND fourth weekends of January. February is the conference wasteland [note again that it's a CCHA school with a free weekend that will host], so you've got to get games in January if you can.

    That's a tough schedule, but that's not surprising. Figure you can split with the three October home opponents. WMU will be hard to beat, but perhaps easier early in the season.

    Do you pick the Buckeyes off at home? Not sure what their recruiting is doing with BTHC a reality. Providence is a possibility given that they'll have a new coaching staff this year. The Thanksgiving stuff will be interesting: an RPI team we played 2-1 twice at home last year, a new-coach UML team that was terrible last year, and UNH.

    December will be a slog, even if the team gets to stay in Minnesota. The interesting thing will be to see how UAH fares against a post-Matt Read BSU squad. It feels like the boys could sweep MC at home to end 2011.

    DU and UMD will both be very difficult trips.

    MU won't be any easier in February, for sure. U-18 comes in to finish out the schedule, and those kids are Danton's squad. DC already knows that I'm going to blister him for six periods.

    I like UAH for 10-11 wins, more if this big recruiting class pans out. All three returning goalies have ice time on their resumes. Baxter is the main scoring punch you lose. The boys have a puncher's chance.

    FYI, apparently UAH is coming to Lowell on November 25th.

I doubt it'll happen this year, but it would be good to have Wisconsin down next year so it can be a Geoffrion fest: Blake with his alma mater, Sebastian and Brice with theirs. You can really sell the hell out of that. I don't know that Mike Eaves will necessarily want to pull that off, but it's also the only chance we have at seeing a UW home game anytime soon. Compare that to DU, which I do believe is a trade.

    For January 13th-14th if it's a two-date affair, my bet is on either UML or an Atlantic team. If it's a one-night stand, and it was January 13th, that could be when you'd play Ohio State. December 30th-31st, that's got to be the Mercyhurst series.
