    Douglas and Terry, check out the Penn State - Div I 2.0 thread. Do you have any insight as to the Penn State claim to the ACHA national championship in 1984 and runner-up in 1985? You two should remember our boys won in 1984 (against Miami) and lost to NDSU (ugh) in 1985. Was ACHA a different organization way back when from the one that ran the tournament we all attended at the VBCC? Curiously, PSU WAS the runner-up (to UAH) in 1983, and that is correctly listed. So, I'm a bit mystified by this. Want the Chargers to get their due.
    In 1983, the "U. S. National Club Ice Hockey Tournament" was hosted by the VBCC in Huntsville. It was billed as the "U. S. National Collegiate Club Hockey Championships" in 1984 and 1985 when also hosted in Huntsville.

    In 1983, UAH, OH U., Auburn U., U. of AZ, Miami of OH, and Penn State participated. UAH won the final against Penn State 5-4. I "think" I remember the UAH winning goal against Penn State as though it was yesterday. With little time left in regulation, the Penn State goalie had played an amazing game even though he had surrendered four goals. Then, he gets hit in the chest with a wicked shot that roles down his left arm, off his glove, onto the ice, across the line, and into the corner of the goal. It was almost in slow motion like in a movie.

    In 1984, UAH, IN U., OH U. , N. AZ U., Miami of OH, and Eastern MI U. participated. I believe wsp67326 is correct with the 3/3 and 3/5 games being transposed in the records. However, I'll provide more on that in a later post.

    In 1985, UAH, Ferris State, Miami of OH, N. Dakota State, N. AZ. U., and U. of DE participated. With N. Dakota State beating UAH in the final, the most memorable part of the weekend was N. Dakota State's skating cheerleaders.

    UAH also won the 1982 "club championship" tournament. I think those games were in CO and UAH defeated Penn State in one of the rounds there.

    I looked that up, too. I can't find any reference to ACHA pre-1991. Not only that, but the 1983-84 and 1984-85 seasons included games between UAH and PSU during the regular season, so what ACHA would have existed if the two teams played each other in such a manner during the year? I am mighty confused here. My recollection was that it was call National Club Hockey, too (hence the "National Club Hockey Championship"); perhaps there was a sub-club team?

    Geof, Douglas, someone, please also have Jamie correct the historical notes to reflect the fact that they defeated Miami on 3/5/84, not Ohio, to win the national championship. Considering it was such an important piece of Charger lore, I can't believe the athletic department would have messed that bit of information up so badly.

    UAH is raising all the banners for 2009-10 and 2010 fall sports tonight at the basketball games at Spragins. This means they'll hang banners for the 2010 CHA win and making the 2010 NCAAs. Saw a number of players at Saturday night's games as, for once, they weren't on the road.

    Nice CHA jacket, although you'd think they'd hook him up with some Waldorf stuff.

    I was checking to see if the game brought his save percentage above .900 (no, it's .898) when I noticed that EMPTY NET has played in 16 games.

    That's not quite as bad as Mississippi State's club team playing and practicing in Decatur, AL, but it's close.

    Mason City, which used to host the North Iowa Huskies (USHL) and then the North Iowa Outlaws (NAHL) is also 35 miles away. I guess they will be traveling for home games and practice.
