Okay boys and girls... Since we (former CHA'ers) no longer have a league to pick, and there are some who want to pick UAH's games anyway, I present this thread as a way to determine what we are going to do this season. It has been suggested that since UAH is in a "league" of one, that in order to have a little variety to the picks, we should offer all former CHA teams as subjects of the pick'em. All former CHA teams are the following: Army, Air Force, Bemidji, Findlay, Niagara, Robert Morris, Wayne State, and UAH. Since Findlay and Wayne State are defunct programs we will have six teams in which to follow and pick outcomes. The alternative is to pick only UAH games. You guys and gals tell me which you want to do by your picks. So, with all that in mind, here are this week's choices of former CHA teams:

Week 1 (10/7-10/2010)
Th-Fr => Ferris State @ UAH (2)
Fr = = => AF v UAF (Kendall Hockey Classic)
Sa-Su => RMU @ AIU (2)
Sa = = => Army @ Colgate (1)
Sa = = => Merrimack @ NU (1)
Sa = = => AF @ UAA (Kendall Hockey Classic)

The Rules:
1. Anyone can play.
2. You may pick:
==>Single Games = Win, Lose, (specify the team) or a Tie
==>Series (2 games) = Win & Tie, A team Sweep, (specify the team) or a Split or Ties (2)
3. Picks must be in by the "Drop of the Puck" time for any and all games.
4. To be declared a "Winner" for the year you must pick 75% of the "countable" games posted here. I do not count Exhibition games as "countable" games. Only NCAA counted games are "countable".
5. Any other rules that are suggested, accepted, and posted here.

I'll try to get the results posted by Monday or Tuesday of each week depending on my workload and schedule. (This is just for fun remember.) Back in the CHA days we played for the honor of possessing the "Monkey" (A stuffed monkey that screamed with dogtags on it in the name and school color of each winner) for the year but since there is no common league, tournament, or anything like that I'll gladly take suggestions as to what, if anything other than "bragging rights", the winner will receive or temporarily possess.

Okay, let the fun begin... or not, your choice.:eek:

And by "it has been suggested" Doug means "Geof suggested it when we were sitting on the home bench watching UAH practice at the VBC on Tuesday morning".

FSU-UAH: SPLIT. I would pick a Ferris sweep, but they lost to OIT despite being massively outshot on Saturday. Combine that with a short week, opening on the road, etc. and I figure the Chargers pull out one.
AF @ UAF: Fairbanks.
RMU @ AIC: Colonial sweep. A UAH fan pickup team could split with AIC.
Army @ Colgate: Taking the Raiders here as the home team.
Merrimack @ NU: Going with the Warriors purely because of Da Costa. Also, just because Noonan was solid in net for Niagara doesn't mean that he'll be the same goaltender this season. Burkholder seems to have some anti-voodoo on his goalies.
AF @ UAA: I'll take the Flyboys in this one.

I normally don't play because I generally suck at this, but it's something to do.

Ferris State splits with UAH. I favor UAH on Thursday if you want to be picky.

Airforce over Alaska-Fairbanks. My wife disagrees here, favoring both Alaska teams in the tourney, I probably should listen.

Robert Morris sweeps American International.

The Magic Eight Ball says "Doesn't look good" when asked about Colgate, so we'll stick with the Black Knights. Hey they skated to a tie last time, but I like grunts over toothpaste, but it'll be close.

Merrimack over Niagara. I don't think NU is as good as some predictions.

I'll take Alaska-Anchorage with home ice advantage over the flyboys of Airforce.

Actually, I expect the Chargers to lose by a close margin on Thursday and rally on Friday.
