since i can't do attachments... for whatever its worth;
some of these loops include schools (e.g., FSU) inside said loops.
what i find interesting is how far the colorado schools are... and that UAH is really not that far from WMU, MU, and BGSU.
geographically, and for the good of the game, there are tons of opportunity - and then comes what to do with ASU, UAA, and UAF...
which in my opinion should be in a conference that is really close to big cities; in the case of the new-WCHA, its not MTU, MQT, LSSU, etc, etc...
but could be denver, omaha, grand forks, cincinnati, minnie, etc, etc... places that commercial planes land more then two or three days per day.
pipe dream... but hoping MTU plays better teams PWR-wise is not. need to make that happen.

hell... however crazy that is;
its only a six-team conference.
the number of NC games available, they can still play ND, UMD, and SCCU. and let's not even bother with omaha, miami, and western.
again, the idea of splitting the WCHA in two regions could help lots...

denver and phoenix have direct flights to anchorange and air force does not need help. all other places would only have one connection.
CONF2 (6) - UMD, BSU, MNSU, SCSU, UND, & UNO
no comment. its perfect.
CONF3 (6) - MTU, NMU, LSSU, FSU, WMU, & BGSU (or MU)
five michigan schools and a red-headed stepchild from ohio. BGSU is closer to all teams then MU.
then send UAH to replace AF in AH and send MU (or BGSU) to the B1G making it an even number at eight.
tons of NC opportunities with these six-team conferences.

1,701 mile driving loop, 25 hours (does not include both AK schools since flying is the only option)
1,321 mile driving loop, 21.4 hours
1,383 mile driving loop, 21.9 hours
in the current WCHA, put BSU, MNSU, MTU, and NMU on one side and LSSU, FSU, BGSU, and UAH on the other. and leave the two AK teams to float.
the top two from each side plus the next four best records (independent of side) make the playoffs. then seed them independent of regions.
again, reduce travel, play more NC games.
