    Re: Alaska / UAA : the Strategic, Restructured, Combined 2019-20 Season Thread.

    I wonder if they are going to try to put the temp extra seats this year at the WFSC.

      What will be the max capacity with the extra seats? I believe UAF at UAA is your first home stand. Hopefully streaming is up and running and tested by then. I guess we'll see.

              In January 2004 my wife and I visited Fairbanks to see BG play and enjoyed the trip. We recommend the Museum of the North and the Alaska RR to Anchorage. (At that time the train left Fairbanks Sunday morning.)

                Yep, I'll second the train ride back to Anchorage. Certainly the best non-hockey part of my trip to Fairbanks. Awesome views and SO much better than flying. The train stopped on several of the major bridges for everyone could get scenic photos. Brutal cold, but great photos.

                  Most of the more talented and successful coaches make the Alaska Trip a adventure every time they came and made it part of their recruitment.............. trip adventure's... so they would take a extra day and do something buss people would never think to do.

                    its easy for me to say this, or anything, as a tech fan...

                    so here goes nothing;

                    i think the reason the mag7 split from the UA_ teams has very little to do with travel. sure its far, we tech fans know... as far as the lower 48 goes we are far from everything.

                    to me the split happened because of money and commitment. the AK budget crises has been brewing for a long time. the coaching hire circus at fairbanks was nothing short of ridiculous. etc, etc.

                    but we are where we are... so an idea, a suggestion;

                    pending the NCAA having some balls to actually do something (because they really do nothing). these three teams could go as independents with the NCAA requiring a rotation from every conference, for every team to visit and to be visited.

                    we would visit you, then something like four years later you visit us, and so on... with three teams that would mean a series every one or two years.

                    the three of you would have the most well rounded schedule in the entire country. half of the games at home, half away.

                    regardless of what happens i wish the three of you the best. and go further to say that i actually think UAH will be the 8th team if they get their commitment straightened out.

                    GO TECH GOLD!

                      I appreciate you having done the leg work on this. Or I assume you have. And since I do not want to recreate the wheel, could you please tell me how much each of the ten WCHA teams spent on their hockey programs last season, or even the 2017-18 if last year’s numbers are still being gathered. I’d like to know just how far below the average UAA, UAF and UAH are. It’s hard to keep up with the LSSU’s and FSU’s of the world. Thank you in advance.

                        Oh my goodness, this would never, ever happen. If the Alaska exemption isn't enough to bring teams to the 49th, enforced pity from the NCAA wouldn't be, either. Getting non-conference teams to come to Huntsville is like pulling eye teeth. I stand a better chance of being the flight director of the first Mars mission's landing and egress day than this does in coming to fruition.

                            you don't dream far enough... i stand by my comment!

                            the exemption? hence the point of it [cost] being shared...

                            have you ever been to AK? i have...

                            as a coach or program, to be able to provide students (**** the athlete side of it) an opportunity to be there... hell... like seeing a moose at the anchorage airport parking lot.

                            do right! ...or never get to mars.

                                Sean Pickett created a revenue/expense spreadsheet a few years back for all of the public school teams. Each school accounts for revenue and expenses differently so individual numbers may not correlate precisely, but here's what he lists as expenses for the WCHA teams in 2016 (last year data is reported). While I don't vouch for it's accuracy, it's as good as anything I've seen to date.
                                Code:
                                Team	2016 Expenses*
                                MSU	2,362,995
                                UAA	2,307,122
                                NMU	2,247,306
                                MTU	2,245,567
                                UA	2,208,390
                                BGSU	1,738,879
                                BSU	1,671,666
                                UAH	1,492,281
                                FSU	1,470,188
                                LSSU	1,183,949
                                
                                *Numbers taken from sheet "Yearly Hockey" column "CU - Men's Total Expenses"
                                I've heard a few times how my school is "in the middle of the pack" on expenses; this seems to support that.

                                https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...gid=1119207498

                                And FWIW, I don't think it's one single reason this is happening. Nor is it necessarily the same reason(s) for each of the schools involved.
