    Elmira, Nazareth, Utica, St. John Fisher, Brockport, Geneseo.

    This would be for men's only. The women would need two more teams, which is why I'm predicting E8 will bring in Hobart (thus William Smith) and Manhattanville as affiliate members as they will bring along a women's team. And there is also Hilbert who only has a women's team.

      I hope this isn't true. Nothing like a rivalry weekend in Fredonia...

      I know the women need to be taken care of too and it has been mentioned previously that they were'nt keen on the LEC because they'd need to wait two years for an autobid. But let's be serious here. At least they'd have an amazing chance at that autobid once it arrives and not have to be up against Plattsburgh.

      I hope this isn't true. I also worry about Babson. Awesome Norwich rival for decades.

        In all seriousness, I don't see this happening. But you never know. D3 hockey is getting weird.

          The empire 8 would be Utica Elmira Geneseo Brockport Nazareth St John Fisher. Throw in the probable collapse of the NEHC and u can realistically throw in one or both of Hobart and Skidmore as affiliate members.
          Oswego 22' and 23' Student Section Leader 2022-2024. If you heard a weird or offensive chant during an Oswego Hockey Broadcast during that time... odds are my friend Tim and I started it.

            Skidmore is relatively close to Plattsburgh, Canton and Potsdam. They would make an even better hockey affiliate than Norwich...

            • What about Norwich and Babson to the CCC?

              • I was at the UCHC women’s championship today. Something is definitely getting announced soon. And I don’t think it has anything to do with Empire 8, as they are waiting, too.

                  Skidmore to the North country teams is about 3-3.5 hours. Skidmore to Rochester and Elmira is also roughly 3.5 hours and the empire 8 wouldn't include the 5-6 hour drives to buffalo

                  • Skidmore to platty is about 1.5 hrs. Add another 1.5 to Potsdam and about 15 min to Canton. Skidmore more to rottenchester is about 4 if the roads are good. I've driven to all of them for many years. Wouldn't take Rte 8 in the winter.

                    • Hmm…Anyone interested in bringing this back to Ellsworth and Norwich’s continued decline since McShane’s departure?

                        There were other factors concerning Buffalo. None of which I will print here. But would tell you in a bar over a few beers.

                            Now that your hockey team is out, you'll have to wait till racing season and the Speedway opens.

                              Sure thing! We need a new coach yesterday. These past few years have been miserable to watch. Even when they've gotten some results the style of play is garbage. The team doesn't have the same relationship with the town. The list goes on and on. The excuses just stink worse and worse. I'm waiting on Flint to appear in the SUNYAC thread and tell all the Platty and Oswego fans something ridiculous like Cortland has more girls on campus.
