    if they are not careful, they will be looking like fools...
    It's WCHA talk.

    Any reports on how the guys are looking? I assume they have started unofficial practices by now.

    In other news, Tech announced on Twitter they have something to show fans tomorrow (9/25). I was told they got new white jerseys, but I thought they meant replacing the old ones with the same white style. I guess that thought was incorrect, but I'm all for a new jersey design after last season was just a reissue of the cream jerseys again. I'll make the obvious guess that it is Raymond Brice wearing a new white jersey with the "C" proudly on the front.

    I wonder how close my 2017 concept will be to the real deal, other than the obvious color difference? (I still think the new logo looks better on silver than white.)

    I think a white Huskies script jersey would be great. OR a home white version of their awesome road blacks.

    Saw the new sweater. Let's just say Biddco got it right with one of the two he mentioned. It's crisp and clean and gorgeous, you're going to really like it.

    I hope it's a script. I know I'm way outnumbered here, but I'm not a huge fan of the current blacks.

    Iím a traditionalist when it comes to that sweater. Gimme what Zuke, Jensen and Warden wore when I was a kid!

    1. This is why I think they'll stay at seven teams, and that's what I've always thought (but haven't stated).

    2. Who's going to any of the Mag7mm schools for a roadie? Are you going to work up an interlock with the non-Ivy ECAC teams? (chortle)

    Tech has home and homes with Robert Morris and Clarkson. UMD, ASU, and ND are willing to come to Houghton.

    There are some rumblings of enticing teams with a game in Houghton and a game in Marquette.

    It might not be the place but honestly, if a reporter asks the question it's because someone asked him. So maybe it is the place after all. The fact that the schools jointly decided not to comment puts the coaches in a bad position. They are the ones facing the public all the time. If the schools would come out with a credible answer and give it to the coaches all this would go away.
    At some point it's going to come out regardless. Then they are all going to look stupid.

    It is odd that they have been so quiet about it. Normally something like that would be hyped up, much like the NCHC/B1G did. If UAH didn't know anything about it, makes me question their motivations. (At the time the Alaska schools were in their budget fight.)

    It appears to be a "smoke filled room" situation that everyone says they don't like. I don't like it, but I understand recent issues the Alaska schools. What I don't get is us (Tech) leaving another Science and Engineering focused school's hockey program to be destitute. It might be a pain to get to, their fan base might not be large, and they might not have had recent success, but Tech was in that position for a long time. It seems like we are turning our backs on school(s) that are going through what we went through. For these reasons, Dr Sanregret has some explaining to do.

    The only reasons I see leaving are an easier to plan schedule/travel, wanting out of what the WCHA management has to offer/is running things, being seen as a true ECAC peer (not somewhere between AH and ECAC), and less political uncertainty. Were a top team or two going to bolt if a change wasn't made?

    What is going to change with a new league? Magically are schools going to spend money on the same level as the BCs, BU, U of M, NoDok's of the world? Will they improve their streaming experience/marketing deals? Are we going to get amazing sponsors with deep pockets to shower them with money? What are they trying to accomplish with the Mag 7?

    I think the biggest reason everything has been so quiet is that the 7 that are leaving don't really know how its going to play out. MSUM still wants in NCHC, I think there is a lot of negotiating going on about a reshuffle that goes beyond those 7 schools. Miami and WMU might not be happy with their current travel costs. What might happen is exactly what you'd expect to happen but who knows.

    Re: Michigan Tech Huskies Off-Season 2019: The Quest to Get Hard

    Some of my freinds from down here, who are not connected to MTU decided to drive to Calumet to see the Hockeyville game. I'm super glad they could go.
    I also got an email from some nameless, ( not really) sports guy at Tech saying how Flo hockey was going to broadcast all the games and how great it was, etc. The only thing he left off was the price. So how much will it be this year? Does anyone know?

    Do you get other sports and a 12-month pass with the annual subscription?

    I believe this is just FloHockey, so you get some hockey games other than WCHA, but I really don't know much about what they offer. I subscribed last year but couldn't find what this year's automatic renewal subscription would cost so I sent them an email. I didn't want the auto renew to jump to $250 or something like that. Maybe if you tell them your only interested in watching 7 out of the 10 wcha teams they'll give you a discount.

    The annual subscription gets you all of FloSports except for regionally blacked out things. The only regional blackouts Iíve heard of are 2 MLS teams have used FloSports for a portion or all of their local region so you can only watch those games in those areas.
