    Like I said- not a lot of day trips in there. It's what seems to have hurt UAH for all these years. But not exactly a selling point when you're telling recruits that each game is a 6 hour+ bus ride each way.
    Western schools leave early Thursday morning on bus and usually make it to their destination by dinner time. IMO, that's a day trip.
    Slap Shot - 444 might want to consider a restraining order.
    dggoddard - Minnesota is THE ELITE Program in all of college hockey.
    wasmania - you have to be the very best to get ice time with the great gophers!

      Just a different slant on your answer, when I think of western teams they won't make it by bus in 24 hours straight driving to hardly any arenas. But can do the 6 - 12 hours by plane. Relative to that Lindenwood should be in ok shape.

        Sorry, a “day trip” for me is getting on the bus, going to the game, and then getting on the bus and going home. Which, for a school like LIU is easy with Princeton, Army, Sacred Heart, Yale, etc all around. Lindenwood has a hotel stay for virtually every trip. Just a bit of a difference when you’re budgeting.

          Serious question: How aware are you that schools out west don’t do single games often and regularly do a weekend series of two games?

          At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

          Canned music is a pathetic waste of your time.

            Yeah, they do it all the time. I think you’re missing the point here- it isn’t that they won’t have anyone to play, it’s that if the budget is their concern, it’s a lot more to put the team up in hotels for these trips than a round trip bus ride for a place like LIU. They’re going to need deeper pockets to make the move than a team in the northeast.

                Again, teams in the west do weekend 2-game series. Almost exclusively. A bare minimum of one night of hotels each away weekend is the norm and presumably already factored into budgets.
