    The D3 playups are dead. Right now, the alums and admins are in the denial phase. It's not going to be a quick death, either, but a long drawn out process.

    I'm giving it 10 years before the men's programs are playing D3. 15 for the women.
    I think you're being a bit of a drama queen.

    There has always been the haves and have nots. This won't change that. If a smaller school (whether a D1 school or a D3 school playing up) wants to continue to "pay the price" of playing D1 sports, they will find a way, even if they continue to be one of the have nots. Heck, Union still does not give out scholarships (voluntarily) and they won a national championship that way.

    And it works both ways. RIT is a very large school. Perhaps one of the largest D3 schools in the country. They have the money to pour into a D1 single sport team if they wish, and could even have an advantage in that sport over smaller D1 schools which have to support a plethora of D1 sports.

      That's a fair point about making choices. On paper, a school like WMU has more money to play with than Tech or Northern, being fully D1 and having 16,000 students. However they've also got D1 football and basketball programs to fund.
      Student fees fund a decent portion of the athletic department, and telling your student body that you need to pay 50-100 bucks a semester so the football/basketball/hockey players can get paid is a hard ask.

      • The biggest thing that will change the sport is when CHL players are allowed to go to NCAA. CHL becomes the Canadian USHL. The top college schools will continue to get the best players, with the overall talent level at those schools increasing a bit.

        The biggest winners of that are the "have nots" of college. There are going to be so many skilled kids joining college from the CHL. That talent will mostly be going to middle/bottom level schools.

        Bedard plays a year of college at a blue blood. But there are too many 3rd-7th rounders who want to take some classes, enjoy the ladies on campus, and live that life. They can't all fit on the top 20 schools.

          It is my understanding that the players will soon be classified as employees. I'm not sure if the money is there to bring in a bunch of Canadian players since the schools will need to pay for work visas. Do you pay an extra $$$ per non-US player on top of out of state tuition, plus min wage, etc. or just do what you can with American kids. It might happen and already broke schools will find money somewhere, but it is simply another expense in an already more expensive NCAA.

              Taking an AHL job, so fleeing the sinking CCHA ship I guess. Assistants are also headed elsewhere.

                            I attended the outdoor OSU game at nee TCF Stadium, when it was about 3 degrees and a bit windy. The ice was junk, and the players uncomfortable; the game ended 1-0 after an unimpressive game where it seemed like a bouncing puck was the impactful aspect all game. I’m good with not attending another outdoor game.

                            • Schlossman today reports reason st Thomas rushed into nchc is that both st thomas and nchc believed the ccha was 48 hours away from voting to increase fee for exiting the league

                              apparently now st Thomas believes that the ccha may kick them out a year early and it’s gonna be very difficult to get tommies into nchc a year early
