    Sorry, but who?? Never heard of her. But I had never heard of the previous coach either so...now she has a chance to be a first time head coach....awesome for her! Must have been a small pool of applicants for a perennial losing program like this but at least in their new conference they'll be able to beat Lebanon Valley College and possibly Kings and Wilkes at first.

Elmira, in theory, yes. River Falls should play into the equation, as should Adrian, Norwich, and maybe a few others, at least until some other programs have a breakthrough into that group.
    I was talking to an AD earlier this year and the way it was explained to me was: there are the top 15 or so programs, then there's the next 20 then there's everyone else. Their hope is to get to the top of the next 20 so they can break through to the top 15 over time.
    Interesting perspective.

    She was a player at Bethel and an assistant at Utica. One of the ways these new programs grow the sports is the more programs there are the more opportunities there are for careers after they're done playing. Other than former star players who grab a clipboard every coach was a "never heard of him/her" at one point in their career. I think in many cases a first timer getting a chance is better than a head coach with a lot of experience losing.

    Nothing to lose in this case. I think it's often a matter of luck and timing when a coach agrees to take a position somewhere...it all depends on what school had an opening and when. If you or I became the coach at Chatham I think we'd soon become "a head coach with a lot of experience losing" no matter how much hockey knowledge we have or how good we actually are as coaches. Chatham is one of those schools where it doesn't really matter who the coach is because they're among the many schools in the "everyone else" category, as per GTOWN's post.

    Some are following their men's programs, some are looking to save travel costs.

    And tournament expansion is not guaranteed.

    I am 90% sure this will not be called the ECAC West next season.

    Do you think yesterday's announcement that Plattsburgh will be adding women's LAX (making all 10 SUNYAC members particpants) could be part of a larger negotiation where the women's hockey schools add a sport they're missing and some combo of Genny, Freddy and Brockport add Women's Ice Hockey? It was a thought that occurred to me when I saw the news but I could be reading too much into it.

    You're reading way too much into it.

    Besides, why would Genny, Freddy, or Brockport give a hoot that Plattsburgh is adding women's lax? Each school has their own budget to worry about. They don't care what other schools do.

    My thinking was they were coordinating adding programs to various sports within the SUNYAC to strengthen the SUNYAC as a whole...of course the first and immediate flaw in that thought process is how does adding 1 program to a 9 conference sport "strengthen" it other than even scheduling? Just me getting my hopes up for a a seven team SUNYAC WIH conference...

    Not really that far fetched to me. Maybe 'coordinating' is too strong but given the group's common interests I'm sure they share ideas and over time this would tend to occur naturally

    I noticed that Wilkes is not listed among teams in the UCHC in that article.

    Wilkes joins in 2018. They play an abbreviated schedule in 2017.

    Naz doesn't start until 2018-19. The article said 2018-19 and still didn't mention Wilkes.

    Then it must be "fake news." Lol, I'm sure it was just a simple omission.
