Great. Now it is just a 5hr drive north from Pensacola to see my beloved NMU Wildcats beat an opponent. :) Let the good natured trash talk begin :)

It's not much worse than what I would have titled this thread: Sweet a Home for Alabama

or perhaps
Who hates Huntsville? the nWCHA does not

Happy to see UAH find a conference. I wish the CCHA had given them a home these last few years.

By far the worst decision the WCHA has made in a longtime on bringin Huntsville over. For a league that will be searching for $$$ this move makes absolute zero sense.

How so? The travel subsidy that UAH is offering is said to be budget neutral for the member schools, so it isn't going to cost these teams any more than their highest cost WCHA trip. And, as has been said in many other posting on this board, UAH is pretty easy to get to with direct flights from Chicago and Detroit.

WCHA commissioner Bruce McLeod said UAH will be paying a similar subsidy to what was worked out for both UAF and UAA recently, which he said is less complicated for the other seven schools and more fair for the three outlying universities.

"All we're trying to do ... is not have it cost anymore than the highest cost trip for anyone in the lower 48," McLeod said.

"Rather than buying X-number of tickets and giving you this and giving you that, we agreed on a firm number and that's the check that Alaska will write to the visiting schools. It's a different approach than in the past, but I think it's much, much more fair and what we're going to do is apply that same formula to Huntsville."

Meaning if Bowling Green State is the most expensive trip for Northern Michigan University and Michigan Tech University, then neither would pay more than that sum to visit Huntsville, Ala., Fairbanks, Alaska, and Anchorage, Alaska.

"We used the same premise and we used the same model and came up with a number everyone was pleased with," UAH athletic director E. J. Brophy said from the convention in Dallas.

"The number is an attractive number. It was unanimously agreed upon, a range. Everybody was very happy with that number and that got us over the hurdle. From then on, it was smooth sailing."
