    Now comes Merrimack who waxed Maine 7-1 last night.

    No offense, but there's a huge difference, though, between BSU/UAH/et. all and scheduling OOC games and Minnesota/Penn State and Michigan.

    Here you go (BTHC): 6 teams, 20 conference games (home and home vs. everyone) and 14 OOC games (or 16 if there are exempt games). In the CHA, there was no real incentive for other schools to want to play BSU/UAH/etc., where as just about every W/CCHA school currently admits that Minnesota/Michigan, etc. drives their attendance, and they "need" them. The WCHA and CCHA would almost be foreced into some sort of scheduling interlock, reducing their number of conference games just to guarantee OOC games vs. the BTHC, and those schools would have plenty of games for variety in their 14-16 OOC games (and they would also give the W/CCHA schools what they want - games vs. their in-state BTHC "rivals").
    The reduction in conference games for CCHA and WCHA is what I was meaning, but I didn't fully finish the thought. An interlock would certainly be a reasonable solution in the west. If the BTHC brings about more non-conference games for all of college hockey, I look at that as a net positive.

    I know I enjoyed the broadcasts (even Friday's game). Hooray Internet.

    2. Until the WCHA dials back their league schedule, it's just not going to happen very often. Devoting 1/3 of your NC games to playing UAH every year isn't feasible, especially considering the cost of the travel.

    JP1 - who do you scout for? Can you send some good ones down south?

    Just hope UAH gets some good news in the spring about the possibility of joining a conference some time in the next few years. Otherwise, it will be difficult to keep the program going, won't it ??

    doubt see much addtional schedule action beyond what already agreed to until fulltime ad in place...hopefully new ad will be hockey supporter...
    Coaches handle 99% of the scheduling in DI hockey. The AD search shouldn't have much impact on that aspect of the program.

    From what I've seen, no. AHA and WCHA schools have very insular schedules, so I don't expect many games with either conference past the next year or two. Bemidji worked to give us a home-and-home, which we'll complete next year, but they only get six NC games, and devoting two of them to UAH every year, with the cost of a Huntsville trip, just isn't feasible, as much as everyone from Tom Serratore on down would love to do it.

    That said, there is another WCHA school lined up for a h&h. I don't think that's signed and sealed, though.
