    2. Bowling
    3. Bemidji
    4. Alaska
    5. Mich.Tech
    6. Lakers
    7. Northern Michigan
    8. Ferris
    9. Alabama
    10. Anchorage

    P.S. My predictive powers are generously described as 'flawed' and 'useless' within my family. So, buyer beware.
    When did Minnesota join the WCHA.

    And what conference did Minnesota State go to.

      I'm still basking in the glow of spelling 'Bemidji' correctly.

              Oh, and to the topic's title: no, we can't. We're a two-bit league with seven teams who want to axe three in the idea that this would make them better. You know what would make them better? Not losing games to those three teams! The Gutless Wonders never cease to amaze.

                Like calling Tech (or Northern) “Michigan!” Now the University of Alabama does have the #21 team in D-1 CLUB HOCKEY!

                  the University of Alabama doesn’t have a team in the WCHA. Minnesota is in the Big Ten.

                    Happens all the time in Southern Ohio. Anything that is yellow and dark and has the word "Michigan" on it is close enough for OSU fans to think one is a Skunk Weasel supporter.

                      Argggh, my first post to the forum and I feel like I've stumbled into some sort of 'name that university correctly' hazing ritual. Just to clarify, the "Lakers" in 6th place refers to the Los Angeles Lakers.

                        LOL. Don't worry. Us smaller schools are very defensive about being lumped in with the larger in state schools. We always have to inform people that our university exists, where it's located, and yes, they focus on academics, except Northern Michigan.

                        Minnesota State's older alumni can't get the name of the school right.

                          Minnesota State?
                          Minnesota State University, Mankato?

                          Minnesota State Mankato?
                          Mankato Normal School?

                              LOL!

                              I never saw a Purple Cow,
                              I never hope to see one;
                              But I can tell you, anyhow,
                              I'd rather see than be one

                              I couldn't resist.
