  1. My understanding is they were given the opportunity when msu applied and the declined.
  2. UAH is not in the CCHA. They seem to be on the path to joining AHA.
  3. You need to compare hockey budget to hockey budget. Comparing the overall athletic budget is completely irrelevant to this.
  4. Touche. It's more like 1 month and then a break and then 1 month after the season starts.
  5. I mean, the coachs' salary's are all about even. Hastings is $350K, Murray is $300K and Blasi's last year was about $365K (I couldn't find Bergereon's). I know it's only coaches, but I guess my assumption is the rest of the budgets would be relatively equal. For what it's worth, Hastings is quite a bit above Brett Larson, too.
  6. Sweet! You know, in 4 months I'm going to be the only person posting in it. And then you're going to lock it because you're flat out annoyed.
  7. I think you could make an argument that the nchc didn't turn out to be what the schools expected. I wouldn't necessarily call it a mistake, but not the financial windfall that was expected. In my view, the nchc schools overestimated the size of the college hockey niche, at least as it stands today. They expected to be able to make a truly national conference, but overestimated the amount of interest that the market would bear. Very few markets have the financial potential of und in terms of fan support in relation to size of school. Und is unique in that standpoint and expecting the same
  8. Are Miami and would bigger budgets than msu? I would imagine it's close to even.
  9. I believe its 24. There are a bunch of tech fans upset with it, but they are very much focused on the expense side of things rather than the idea of growing the pie.
  10. 95% of fans and the administra ton would move to the nchc in a second. In fact, I heard (not sure if it's completely true or not), that msu told the other schools when the ccha was formed that we were still going to make the push to join the nchc. It just makes sense for us. There is little fan excitement about playing Ferris or bg or lssu. There just isn't a natural rivalry with them.
  11. The amazing thing is, I really didn't think this was that good of a team. We lost a ton of points from seniors and early departures las year. I can think of at least 3 teams that were more talented than this team in the last 8 years. It's kinda crazy.
