Sorry to end the "fun" debating how hot the women's hockey team is but....has anyone seen anything about the WCHA schedule for 2010-2011 and beyond? I hear they are going to clusters starting in 2010. Teams will keep their "rivals" with Bemidji and UNO pairing up. Clusters will rotate every year. 1st year, UND, SCSU will be paired with UNO and BSU with each team playing the other 4 times. Non-cluster partners will play each other only twice a season.

I think we all assumed this was coming, not sure if I like it or not but given the alternatives I've heard tossed out I think this is best.

This is what Allenspach had today

The WCHA has finalized a new schedule covering the 2010-11 through 2014-15 seasons. It will keep the designated rivals under the current schedule format (i.e. the teams that play each other home-and-home every year). For St. Cloud State, that means the traditional rivalry with North Dakota will be ongoing, as are the others in the league, and new members Bemidji State and Nebraska-Omaha will be paired together. These two-team pairings will be matched with another different pair each year to form a "cluster." Those four teams will play each other in home-and-home series (12 games). Teams will play the remaining eight teams at one site -- four at home and four on the road (16 games). The 28-game schedule, in keeping with the current number of games, will rotate over five years, with every team playing at every other building in three out of five seasons.

Figures! I actually read it in the Bemidji paper around 7:00 but couldn't find my password to post. That's what happens when you don't post for 6 months....

DL- why would you put UND with UAA? I could understand UND and BSU (only due to proximity) but otherwise SCSU makes as much sense as anyone for UND since MN and WI aren't an option. Mankato with UNO and BSU with UAA would make more sense but only to get the Mav's together and I don't know if that really makes sense or not, SCSU/Mankato makes as much sense.

I just put UND with UAA because they're geographically the closest to each other.

I think he means after DU and CC, since he paired them up.

No...I meant UND and UAA. UND is the school that's geographically the closest to UAA (besides CC and DU).

By the way...I think I should be in charge of naming our weekly threads. The rest of you guys have ZERO imagination. ;)

This starts for the series against fUMD. :)

I'm not shocked, but I am kinda surprised, I figured they'd shuffle. How would you have wanted it shaped up? I thought either UAA would get UNO, UND would get us or BSU, and MSUM would get who UND didn't, or BSU would get UAA would get BSU, MSUM would get UNO, and the rest would stay, so they could make one of the noobs have the Alaska flight every year, but I'd say this works just as well too.


They should just rearrange the rivalries. Some you would obviously keep, though.

Denver vs. Colorado College
Minnesota vs. Wisconsin
Minnesota-Duluth vs. Michigan Tech
North Dakota vs. Alaska-Anchorage
Mankato State vs. Nebraska-Omaha
St. Cloud State vs. Bemidji State

There is ZERO chance UND would have gotten UAA because they wouldn't have been ok with getting the Alaska flight every year, and they have enough pull in the WCHA to prevent that from happening.

Somehow, the name "Skeeterman" on twitter is taken by some jackhole from Mesquite, TX.

I am sad.

I wouldn't be surprised if Mankato wanted to keep UAA. The two extra games every year are probably nice.

INCH comes out with their recruiting class rankings, and SCSU's is ranked 7th and 3rd in the WCHA behind DU and MN. Not bad for a team only bringing in 4 guys.

Exactly. I think every team would be OK with UAA each year. Budgets being what they are an extra two home games each year is something just about every athletic department would be OK with.

Plus coaches and media pick Husckeys to finish in top five with Lee as the ROY.

Yeah, but 5th isn't anything to blow up anyone's skirt. I think this team has to feel like they need a top 3 finish.

Denver vs. Colorado College
Minnesota vs. Wisconsin
Minnesota-Duluth vs. Michigan Tech
North Dakota vs. Alaska-Anchorage
Mankato State vs. Nebraska-Omaha
St. Cloud State vs. Bemidji State

Would leave the first 3 and then go:
North Dakota/Bemidji
UNO/UAA
SCSU/Kato

Top 3 indeed! Time for this team to make some noise right out of the gate (Miami that is, not Lethbridge.)

Holy ****! You agree with me on SCSU's goals, I defend you on the potential for the stadium.... that's us on the same page twice in one day, and we didn't even have to rag on Tony Mosey to do it! :D
