OK, let's not get excited. They're D-II and like the rest of the NE-10 can't compete for a D-III championship. But the women are eligible for the women's National Collegiate Championship provided they play enough games against D-I/II competition.

And here's the conference:
Sacred Heart (D-I independent)
St. Anselm (D-II/ECAC-E ECAC-E)
Franklin Pierce (D-II/NE-10 ECAC-E)
Holy Cross (D-I ECAC-E)
St. Michaels (D-II/NE-10 ECAC-E)
Post University (D-II new)

That's 6 and they have an AQ into the NCAA NCC.

I'd think that 2015-16 is an awfully aggressive and optimistic timetable to put together a team. Then again, why would a DII school decide to field a hockey team in the NE-10, and not have a chance to play for anything but a conference championship? I've got to think that they feel there is something (AHC maybe?) down the road after they get their program on its feet. Only time will tell....

I liked this, figure this is as good a place as any to post it - in case you missed it -

Commentary: Without an NCAA tournament to play for, Division II teams are stuck in the middle (http://www.uscho.com/2015/01/09/commentary-without-an-ncaa-tournament-to-play-for-division-ii-teams-are-stuck-in-the-middle/)

There is an alternative, just they choose not to exercise it.

Don't blame the NCAA on this.

Post University is not an NE-10 school guys.

They play in the Central Athletic Collegiate Conference (CACC).

Perhaps they would affiliate with the NE-6 for hockey

They have enough for 6, that's why it is the Not Enough 10 :p

And that's enough for an NCAA bid.

They would get quite a schooling in that company for sure. I just don't see it as realistic

So? See MASCAC in just about every NCAA sport. But in D-1 there is always your share of the revenues.

I don't think that non-DI schools are allowed to share in revenue from the NCAA tournament. They get to go, but they can't share in the revenue.

I don't see they would get a big bump in revenue from their home games.
