I wonder why they wouldn't include teams like Nebraska (who just entered the Big Ten in Football and Basketball)... and does this mean that the other CCHA teams will still make up their own conference?

Nebraska doesn't have a hockey team. It's Nebraska-Omaha that has a team. The remaining teams in the CCHA will still have a conference and might possibly pick up a couple new teams.

This is awful and this is greedy. Awful greedy.

What about my alma mater NMU? LSSU? Ferris, BG and on and on. Taking Minnesota and Wisconsin guts the WCHA in name, history and winning %. I would suppose the remaining WCHA and CCHA clubs could cobble together a league but the travel would kill a small school like NMU et al.

I'm with you on this. I'm a U of M student, but grew up attending all NMU games and I still follow them. I have a bad feeling that all of the small schools are going to be lucky to keep Division I programs running for very long.

Which OU are you referring to? Both Oklahoma and Ohio only have ACHA teams, and this shouldn't affect OSU's DII ACHA team.

maybe Arkansas Razorbacks will move up a level. 2 Straight 20+ win seasons.

Arkansas is a good DIII ACHA south team, but they failed to make nationals this year and didn't do too well at nationals last year. IMO they should stay in DIII and only move up when/if they begin to dominate DIII. Otherwise, moving up from being a top-10 DIII south team to being an average DII team is useless IMO.

Ohio U, it's one of the few sports we have to be proud of.

This won't change those OSU-OU games since they are ACHA.

Not really a fan of this, but expected once Penn State said they were fielding a team. Takes a big chunk out of CCHA and WHCA. They will still probably play a lot of teams in their "former" conferences, just not as much.

Like Michigan Tech University in the WCHA? They are such an awful team, finish with 4 wins this year and things don't look any better.

I need to make it to one of those games. I played ACHA hockey during my undergrad, but I was too busy to make it to any of the OSU ACHA games this year.

Feel bad for the smaller schools. College hockey was always fun because of the different variation of competing schools from the other main college sports.

Tech is a founding member of the WCHA, and it is the main athletic program there. They are not doing well, but it is not going any where.

They won't leave the WCHA, I love when State plays them, it's point night. :)
