    Huntsville proper was not damaged past trees and power lines down. Madison, where I live, is the same way. In outlying areas of Madison County, it's worse, but nothing awful. Last I heard 7dead in MC.

    Power will be out for up to a week. The transmission line off of Browns Ferry nuclear power plant is destroyed. Most of north Alabama is without power. Madison County is entirely serviced by that trunk line. Unless you are texting folks, you won't hear from them unless they leave town. I'm in Jackson, Tenn. with my family.

    UAH is fine. Campus is closed until further notice. They have a plan to start exams on Monday but I think even they'll agree that's optimistic.

    Nothing in Huntsville compares to Cullman or Tuscaloosa. I cannot wrap my head around either one.

    I've just moved out of Huntsville so I'm not really there anymore, but I've gotten a hold of a number of local folks and so far everyone I've tried to find has been okay though a number are a bit rattled. It's a mess down there, and most of the area is without power so it may be as much as 5 days before most will be back online.

    Hope all the Charger fans and their families in the Huntsville area are safe, first & foremost, and that they were spared any property damage as a result of all those storms.

    From what was said by the staff at the BLC, looks like a couple more d-men to be recruited and a goalie.

    Next BLC meeting is Monday 5/2 at 7:00 p.m. We'll have at least one more in May, probably on a Tuesday night.

    I believe we can do that one day next week. I'm out today and am pretty covered up tomorrow.

    We'll have a BLC meeting early the week of May 2 [probably Monday, maybe Tuesday]. The coaches are heading to Naples next week for the AHCA meetings, which will certainly be interesting. We're also in the national signing period, so some of these verbal commitments y'all have unearthed should become things that the university can discuss.

    Unfortunately, this is the second year in a row that we've been traveling at Awards Dinner/Auction time. These are probably the only two we have ever missed. Geof, it would be nice if either you or Jamie would provide a report at

    Have you noticed that this year's recruits almost all have size and heft? That's something that was obviously missing against several teams this past season. We were an overall very small team with only average speed. In the past our small players were all speedsters. Speed can make up for size in alot of instances... not all, but alot. Small size and average speed obviously does not bode well for outcomes... Hopefully, this year's recruits will contribute early.

    Don't take this to mean "oh God varsity hockey is dead at UAH". Johnson said in his first-stage interview that no AD would save UAH hockey, and that it would come from outside forces. He's right about that.

    I'm hearing enough good things about how the shakeout will happen out west that I'm very confident at this point. I have a proposed solution that I'm finishing writing up.

    I'm glad to hear everyone's issues with this year's BLC, even though I'm certainly not happy that folks are having them. I don't know where the balls were dropped, but I'll find out. This is actually making the case for an off-campus, 501(c)3 organization.
