Kudos to Freaked for the find. That is a very informative article, describing the possible cascades caused by Notre Dame having to be special....

So ND to Hockey East could leave a slot in AHA for Alabama - Huntsville.
OR if BGSU rebuilds the CCHA with 4 AHA schools, maybe UAH could be #6.
Geographically, UAH is isolated, however AHA or CCHA would be the best possible scenario from their perspective.
AHA would actually let them save money on hockey scholarships (AHA ceiling = 12 vs. D-1 ceiling = 18).

Seriously. With so much FBS/BCS to cover of late, hockey has taken a backseat. But freaked has keep us all in the loop with these updates. Such a tough time for college hockey writers as there is so little focus on them now due to B12/SEC/ACC type of news.

Thanks, Freaked.

So BGSU needs to accept / reject WCHA inviation by Friday.
They may react as soon as Notre Dame decision becomes official.
If this CCHA rebuilding project was going to happen, I think we would have heard a lot more by now.

BGSU's only other apparent option is to wait for the "Notre Dame cascade", and jump into a hole vacated in AHA, I suppose.
However, BGSU would need to give up 6 of their 18 hockey scholarships for that.

UAH must be eyeing the same slot, and they would gladly reduce scholarships as a condition to join AHA.

Thanks for staying on top of this Freaked !

Everyone now has a home, except UAH.
They may get a shot a AHA (I hope) after the "Notre Dame cascade).

I would personally like to see Connecticut move to Hockey East with Notre Dame
(sort of hoping they will end up in the ACC together with HE member Boston College).

Regardless, Hockey East will grab team #12 from ECAC Hockey or Atlantic Hockey (AHA).
If it's the ECAC, they will "back-fill" from the AHA.
Either way, the AHA would be at 11, and they may open a spot for Alabama-Huntsville.
(unless Air Force decides to move back west and join the WCHA).... stay tuned !

Can someone post the new lineups with all the changes for those of us who don't follow this that closely, and is Alabama Huntsville the only school without of home?
