    Re: Does anyone miss CCHA?

    Only all the time.

    We haven't played Western, Miami or Ohio State since the league went under. Notre Dame had us for a series the first year there (plus a tourney in Florida), but hasn't made the trip back to Sault Ste. Marie. Michigan and Michigan State have each played a set up here in the 5+ years.

    I suppose somebody who's more centrally located (Ferris, BG) can more easily get some of these schools to come in. Does anybody know how NMU has been affected schedule-wise?

      I’m pretty sure the only fanbase that likes the B1G more than the CCHA or old WCHA is PSU.

        I just told my husband the other day I miss the CCHA. Playing big schools like Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State brought fans to our little arena in Fairbanks which was really beneficial for the program.

          Since 2013-14, We've played:
          At WMU 2 games (13-14)
          Vs UNO 4 games (13-14, 16-17), At UNO 2 games (17-18)
          At GLI (1 vs Mich, 1 vs MSU)
          At MSU 2 games (18-19)
          At ND 1 game (18-19)


          We've played UNO six times since the conference shakeup, four of those at home. We haven't seen Michigan or Michigan State darken our doorstep since the breakup.

          I miss the regular Western and Notre Dame games. And tOSU.

                I miss the easy road trips being more frequent. In the old CCHA, I could easily attend a game at Miami, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Western Michigan, Michigan, and Michigan State and head back home the same night. We still play some of these teams in non-conference games, but once the WCHA starts, it is difficult to attend road conference games.

                  Wasn't the Big 10 Hockey conference supposed to really grow college hockey? Only Arizona State has joined and they aren't even in a conference at the moment.

                      7 of the 9 CCHA rinks were within a four hour drive of me.

                      Now there’s only two WCHA rinks I can get to in that time.

                        Illinois is in the works supposedly.

                          To add to this, we did see some different offerings in addition to this: We did do cash games at Notre Dame and North Dakota. Also we are going East for the first time in forever when we play at Cornell... They came to MQT this season...

                            Notre Dame will be coming to Marquette for one game the year after next. Even trade. Michigan State and St. Cloud will each be in Marquette next year for a 2 game series as the back end of this year’s trips there.

                              At least we get to see our former commissioner, Fred doing commentary for the B1G Network.
                              But in a way it kind of feels like he's gone over to the dark side!

                                I've got to say that's a road trip I wish I could have made at least once. Could have been fun and getting to mingle with the Alaska fans.
