    In spite of the family-friendly Google Adsense asterisks, I think I was able to decode that message in its entirety.

    Here in Massachusetts there was a recall election for the Mayor of Fall River. The recall vote was held simultaneously with a vote for the next mayor (if he was recalled). The mayor ran along with four other candidates. He was recalled with 61.45% of the vote, but was immediately re-elected on the second part of the ballet with 35.4% of the vote.

    If they do hold a recall vote in Alaska what are the rules? Will Dunleavy be allowed to run for the office if he is recalled?

    Probably not.

    Their only driving factor in getting teams to visit them is either bribery (not making as much money on a home series) or the exemption.

    I’m pretty sure the latter isn’t a hugely valuable carrot to dangle, otherwise they’d have already been able to get quality non conference schedules in the current or previous alignment.

    No. If he’s recalled the Lite Gov (Kevin Meyer) becomes Governor.

    This guy has to go and then we are saddled with an oil company shill.
    That guy represents the oil companies not the State of Alaska.
    If we simply quit paying the oil companies to take our oil the whole money problem would be solved.
    Trickle down did not work here and it hasn't worked ever, anytime its been scammed onto people.

    Wouldn’t be the first time and it won’t be the last time, either.

    Elections (and votes) matter.

    As far as U of A goes, the damage has already been done regardless whether or not that simpleton gets shown the door.

    In other news, I wonder if we will have apparel that looks like highlighters this season.

    The best way forward is to get parties together from UAA and UAF to make up a new mascot. Each gets an alumni rep, athletic director rep, a student rep, and a few other ones and chart a new mascot.

    Re: Ak/uaa

    I was looking at Alaska news. The Chancellor of UA-S (Juneau) Richard Caulfield said that this transition to the single accreditation model will take years:
    "What the new UA would look like is not yet defined. The regent’s vote was for UA President Jim Johnsen to begin drafting a plan that will be presented at the next regent’s meeting in September... The transition process will take time, several years at least, but Johnsen intends to work “expeditiously” on the process."
    https://www.juneauempire.com/news/ch...ffs-are-ahead/

    The Anchorage Daily News posted an article with the headline: "As University of Alaska moves toward consolidation, two athletic programs are likely to become one."
    [quoting the article:] (UA system President Jim) Johnsen and the regents will also have to address how many sports survive. If the university opts for 10 sports — the minimum requirement for NCAA Division II membership — expect a debate over what survives and what doesn’t. Another hard decision will come if the university can’t put some sports in Fairbanks and some in Anchorage, either because of NCAA rules or too many duplicated costs. Johnsen said a variety of factors will be considered if it comes down to deciding whether Fairbanks gets college sports or Anchorage does. “Off the top of my head: enrollment, tradition, philanthropic support, fan base. We’d look at the facility availability and look at the conference factor." The idea of dropping to the Division III level — which doesn’t allow athletic scholarships — or moving to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has been tossed around, Johnsen said, but hasn’t been discussed formally. Meanwhile, fall-semester sports like volleyball and cross country will begin practice at UAA and UAF later this month as scheduled. There is no travel freeze “at this point,” Johnsen said. Less certain is how athletics will fare in the spring semester, which begins in January. “I can’t commit to that at this point,” Johnsen said. A number of sports, including hockey and basketball, straddle the fall and spring semesters. Johnsen said he doesn’t think any sport would be eliminated once its season has begun. “Oh boy, I hope not,” he said.

    Looks like both teams are playing this year and we'll see what happens going forward:

    In reading the articles from Alaska, it seems fall sports would proceed, no determination has been made on spring sports or those which straddle the semesters like hockey and volleyball, although articles I saw said that it was unlikely that programs would be cut once their season started.

    The exact quote was “Oh boy, I hope not,” in reference to whether a team would be cut once the season starts. Forgive me if I am not overjoyed by that statement. Considering the BoR's lack of urgency, the university burn rate continuing unimpeded and the school year starting, I can easily see a scenario where the hockey teams start the season but run out of money and are unable to continue after the holidays. That would be a nice 'F--- you!' to the WCHA teams after they decided to cut the Alaska teams anyway. (Sorry that teams like Denver, Maine and UAH will be caught in the crossfire - especially Denver, for whom pairwise will be meaningful)

    Kinda hard to imagine Anchorage wouldn't get the sports if it came to it given the higher population and sparkling new(ish) facility. Doesn't mean hockey would survive, though.

    I agree. But Anchorage has more teams than it needs already. The NCAA requires 10 and they have 13. If hockey goes away does that mean gymnastics does as well?

    From ADN:

    "According to NCAA, the (UAF) hockey team used ineligible players in every game played from the 2007-08 season to the 2010-11 season. Over that span, the wins and ties will all become losses. 4 wins and 2 ties came against rival UAA".

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.
