Can't say I'm surprised, but still...never easy when a program is a casualty and is ended.

Looks like they've nearly done this in the past, flopping between D1 and D2 when the NCAA sponsored D2. I'm not close to the situation, so I don't know all the details, but I'm truly sorry for the UAH fans.

Whenever the NCAA sponsored D2 ice hockey, UAH played at the D2 level. UAH was relatively successful during its most recent run at the D1 level up until Air Force bolted for Atlantic Hockey and imploded CHA, making recruiting more impossible than it already was.
