Their league affiliation isnít the problem, the culture at their school is.
They were pulling this same crap back when they were beating up on the old MCHA and post-season play was a pipe dream for them (anyone remember Minnesota-Crookston?)
Hopefully some future recruits find this message board and see this thread to get an idea about the culture of this program.
Watch them hang 10 on Finlandia or Lawrence, get wasted at the hockey house, maybe bully a nerd or two late night...
What could be better for the type of 20 year old AC seems to always attract?

So whatís the over-under that Adrian tries to fight players on the U.S. National Under-18 January 8th? Hopefully Jack Hughes is still recovering from a world junior championship, and is held out of this game because it wouldnít surprise me if Krug tries to make a name for himself, and tells his players to go after the potential 2019 number one overall pick.
Second, if this was the first series between these two institutions, I wonder how the bad blood was created so quickly. Sometimes, even in college hockey, fights happen. But what happened in this game was a "mugging". The camera guy was probably watching the game and decided not to follow the play with the camera, so the initial blows were not recorded. But when one place gets the upper hand, as did the AC player, he landed a couple of real solid blows, the game dictates, at all levels, the altercation has been won, time to back off. I would agree that if the second participant wants to keep going, sure. However, this did not seem to be the case. As I said, this was a mugging.
At the upper levels, the different conferences issue suspensions, I am assuming that D3 does not do this.
Does anyone know if this is a multi year commitment?
Still no suspensions handed down from the NCHA. So unless this is the NFL and Tom Brady where it takes 6 months to suspend I suspect nothing further to see here. Move along.
The only thing I can imagine is that with the holiday break, the conference has not taken it up yet... ya, probably not!!
Really surprised the NCHA hasn't done anything or issued a statement. Referee suspensions or disciplines or Supplemental discipline for the players?
Regarding the 2nd half of your statement. A lot of D3 teams raise money for trips, sticks, gear, etc... Thatís the norm for most. Some have a lot more alumni support than others and donít have to work so hard to get those extra funds. Also you see a lot of the D# Tehranís that deal directly with the local pro shops through the manufacturer top get gear, sticks, skates, etc... So heading over to the local pro shop to grab a stick or trade on in is normal. I also seriously doubt the borrowing of tape from the other teams actually occurred In Lake Placid, but you never know. With Salveís recent success hopefully some alum or two with strep up and help their rink situation. A move over to St. Georgeís closer to campus and a build out new locker room and coaches area would be great.
I support tuition payments past...
