Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

I live about 1 hour NW of Huntsville. The trip (2 hrs) from NASH down I-65 is very nice ride unless you are heading south between 4-6 PM during rush hour. Plus, you get to spend a few days in NASH which is a pretty cool city re sports, music, entertainment and booze. I was at the NHL DRAFT in downt...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

Hi Millsy, I assume you are big Bemidji State fan. Have you meet Nick Cardelli? Cards is a great kid. My son played midget and juniors with Nick and hopefully they will work out again this summer in Chicago! Cards is a slick skater and always has a smile! Yep, BSU grad and fan through and through. ...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

Road route to Huntsville from Atlanta is quite long because of mountainous terrain. You have to almost take an L shape route more than 3 hours long. Nashville is much closer and due north less than 2 hours away. Birmingham, Al is even closer. Surprised that you didn't fly into Nashville Millsy on o...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

Millsy. It appears UAH will be left out in the cold unless BSU’s new league or the AHA steps up with an invite. I was under the impression that most of the major airlines fly into Huntsville. In addition , travel budgets will be tighter in the post Covid environment . Teams really have to fly into ...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

Millsy: Thanks for the historical perspective of the CCHA and WCHA. Do you see the AHA offering membership to UAH ( U of Bama- Huntsville) ? I would say no, I don't see it happening. AHA already has to make a trip out to the Air Force Academy, I can't see them wanting to add one to Huntsville as we...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

I think at the time Bowling Green, Ferris, Lake Superior State and either Northern Michigan or Michigan Tech ( which ever one was in the CCHA). I think Western Michigan had just left for the NCHC. The CCHA teams left were Bowling Green, Ferris, Lake State, Northern, Alaska and Western Michigan. The...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

WOW, Millsy what a mess within the ranks of the "new league" with no name. I wouldn't call it a mess, it is just the seven schools looking out for themselves. When the NCHC and Big10 broke off, it was left up to a a mid major (Bowling Green) and a bunch of Division 2 schools that play D1 ...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

Just wondering about mickey's statement about if the CCHA would put more fannies in our empty seats. Is there a minimum capacity for the CCHA. I doubt if having a 1500 seat arena such as Dwyer would be a asset in applying for member ship in the CCHA, . Not sure what the bylaws are, but if they are ...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

Millsy: Why would the "new CCHA" invite UAH after breaking away from the WCHA without them? Is ASU really being considered by the "new CCHA" group of seven ? Any other real possibilities for expansion? le, sorry for getting back here late. It comes down to whether or not UAH can...

Re: NU HOCKEY @ NORTH DAKOTA

Would love to see Atlantic Hockey reduce from 28 league games. The problem comes with finding teams to play those extra games. The WCHA and AHC are the only leagues playing 28 and that is to help maintain a full 34 game schedule. The ECAC plays only 22 while the NCHC, Big 10, Hockey East play 24. S...
