        yeah...I'm sad to see it happen but I don't like the idea of expecting those 7 to just throw money at something to help other schools

          so let's say we end up with 7 and then another one pulls the plug and says, it's too expensive we quit. then what?

            I haven't made it through a full episode. Sorry to be blunt, but the handful of interesting things they have to say ought to be USCHO forum posts instead, that way we can be enlightened in one minute instead of sixty. The interview is really the only segment that has potential.

              I prefer the podcast. I can listen to it while working at my desk or in the truck driving across the tundra.

              And I haven't listened to an edited version yet. I will do that to hear what they cut out.

                Same here. I really enjoyed listening to Ryan Johnson. He sounded intelligent.

                  Blame moi? How do you arrive at that conclusion? Just because we didn't want to be in the league in the first place doesn't mean we are the ones leading...[heavy sigh], yeah...it's probably us.

                  Our natural rivals don't play hockey (F#c& you, Toledo) and our historic hockey rivals aren't in our league ("Go Green, Go White, Go suck an egg!!"). For better or worse, Tech is the closest thing we have to a "rival" these days. So think of that encounter as sign of love. And you got a free hat!

                    Two points: 1) St Thomas & 2) the CHA lasted 7 seasons with much less stable teams at 6 members

                    AHA:

                    ECAC:
                    HEA: UMass, Notre Dame
                    NCHC: UMD, UND, SCSU, WMU
                    WCHA: UAH, BSU, FSU, LSSU, MSU, MTU, NMU

                      I think everyone is somewhat disappointed in these events, but I'm not sure what we're supposed to do. In Kato's "regular conference," 2 teams just dropped football. One of them was St. Cloud, which has well over 10.000 students. Sports are expensive, and at our level, there's no great payback. No 50,000 seat arenas, no multimillion dollar television deals, no jerseys on sale in a Minneapolis Wal-Mart. I'd hate to see any of the other 3 schools lose their hockey program, but I'd hate it even more if we get dragged down with them, when we could have saved ourselves by getting out of the WCHA.

                          It's not for everyone, thats part of the reason I give the segment rundown so you don't have to listen to everything to find the 5 minutes you care about

                            Since you are a fan of Auto Racing, think about it in the context of that:

                            You have your top teams like Mercedes, and Ferrari. ( Top of B1G, NCHC, HE in our case)
                            You have your Mid-tier teams like Red Bull and McClaren (Mid B1G/NCHC/HE, Top WCHA/AH)
                            You have your F1 Field Fillers like Haas and Alfa Romeo (Mid & Bottom of WCHA/AH)

                            In racing, at no point has Mercedes been tasked with keeping Haas around for the "good of the sport". There is a reason privateer teams weren't able to survive past the 1990s. NCAA Hockey is at a similar point. You have your "factory teams" with mega budgets leading the pack while the bottom of the field is trying to get the same end result with just 25% of the factory teams' budgets. Yea, Minardi had a following and it was a cool story when they ran well (think RIT or Bemdji's Frozen Four), but for the most part, they were an after thought.

                            NCAA Hockey is following the same evolution that Auto Racing has seen over the past 40 years. You either have money or you don't and you have to pay to play. Unfortunately the teams that you are seeking charity from are also the same ones who are having difficulty staying afloat as it is.
                            It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

                            Go Cats!!! GO BLACKHAWKS!

                            Cuck the Fubs... Let's Go WHITE SOX!!!
