    Not impressed. I think they would have been better served to go with something new.

      Bringing back the CCHA...now just bring back St. Louis University (one of the original schools) so I can catch NMU at least once a year by just crossing the street after work.
      Thinking that NMU is way better then your school with no evidence or proof since 2001.

        LSSU and FSU probably shouldn't rush to re-brand everything just yet.

          I greatly enjoyed those Bowling Green St. Louis battles in the late 1970's. Fantastic memories!

            How dare schools don't want to travel 3,500+ miles one way to play conference games!?

              So, just because I don't always pay attention on the D1 side … this leaves Alaska-Anchorage, Alaska-Fairbanks and Alabama-Huntsville without a conference, along with Arizona State (who didn't have one)

              Correct?

                Ya, and one of these things is not like the other.

                      I believe UAA and UAF have not filed paperwork with the league to leave, but UAH has.

                      So that leaves us with
                      WCHA: UAA, UA_
                      Announced intentions in leaving: UAH
                      Homeless: ASU

                      *Edit* I assume UAH could have the league tear up their paperwork and remain IF something comes about.
                      UAA, UA_, UAH, and ASU is a tough sell for other teams wanting in. And I believe the NCAA has a rule about conferences with less than six members.

                        St Louis had some very good teams. Too bad they didn't have their own arena and that probably led to their demise. They had to play in the old St Louis Blues arena, the Checkerdome I think it was, and that proved to be too expensive for them.

                          It’s been a poorly kept secret that Bowling Green is the ringleader here. This should remove any doubt.

                            College Hockey America operated with four teams there at the end (2008-09, 2009-10). They kept getting waivers once they went below six teams. I don't know if the hope was that more teams would join up or whether it was to give them time to find a place to land.

                            I do not consider a four-team conference, even if it was BC-BU-Harvard-Northeastern, to be viable. If you want to keep the number of games equitable, you're probably playing eight (8) games against each team, which is two trips to each school a year, and even then you're still looking to fill ten (10) non-conference games. UAH played 28 regular season games in 2007-08 and 2000-10 and just 28 in 2008-09.

                              Actually, the moniker is more about the way it was handled then the end result.

                              But to be clear, you’d be against the CCHA adding any new team that required a flight?

                                There is no Alaska-Juneau. It’s Alaska Southeast.
