    We'll see. Part of his calculation is that the people most vocal about the recall will either be 1) placated by this (not likely) or 2) too busy fighting turf wars over his table scraps to worry about the recall (more likely)

    Only time will tell if he calculated correctly.

    On another note, will the university system still be seeking the single accreditation model? If it is, how will that effect athletics? With $70 million on the chopping block and an uncertain future for both hockey teams (thanks WCHA) what are the odds the university cuts its losses and eliminates one or both programs?

    $5 per hockey event to park
    Green & Gold
    Exhibition Game (if not at SXQ or McDonald or Palinville or PAQ)
    16 home games
    $90 to park
    It was $6 at the Sully so not a bad deal.

    Are you following the facebook group to recall him? I don't think they are even thinking about winding down. They want him GONE!

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

    I haven't been following. I would assume everyone in the group who can sign the recall has signed. Convincing the other (10,000?) required signatories will be the challenge. This would have all been factored in by the governor's advisors. If they didn't think this would placate enough people the budget would have been adjusted accordingly. The governor sounds like a corrupt ******* bent on giving the Alaskan treasury to his oil executive buddies. Good luck recalling him.

    That's harsh. No one at the WCHA is asking either of the Alaska schools to leave the WCHA or is kicking them out of the conference.
    However they will likely need to convert their teams to women's programs...

    The league itself isn't telling the UA_ schools to pound sand...just every other team in the league is telling them to pound sand...

    They already have over 29,000 signatures, enough to be certified to go to the second phase.

    And they will be at the state fair, I expect a ton more signatures by the time the fair is over. Too bad they can't get the signatures for the second round at the fair!

    Interesting article on the "Great" Don Lucia and his interest in UA_.

    The rest of the WCHA teams are helping the UA_ teams in the same way that a hungry lion helps a wounded gazelle.

    UAF made the kind of hockey history on October 10th 2015 that no team wants to claim – the Nanooks became the first NCAA Division I victim of Arizona State.

    Seems strange to me that she would have an opinion on the situation, but I'll bite, what were her thoughts on the matter? Is she going to drop $200M so that UCLA and USC can have D-I hockey and join the WCHA?

    Re: Ak/uaa

    Has there been any public response from the GNAC? Any word from the schools on the “one University” concept and the possibility of splitting the athletic programs or continuing one or both? Any talk of how coaches are approaching recruiting and scheduling?

    None that I have seen. I've been pondering the same questions.

    Re: Ak/uaa

    I just took a peek at the roster, and UAA added Luc Brown for this year. He is a transfer from Union, but only played 4 games his junior year. I wonder if he qualifies as a redshirt? Does he have to sit this season?

    The roster looks quite different! When the announcement was made about the incoming recruits back in December, Mack Hancock was one the listed players. As of today he is not on the roster. The other three appear to still be coming. Once again it is a roster heavy with rookies, 10 to be exact.

    Brown is a graduate transfer I believe, played 3 years at Union, prolly got his degree, can go to UAA for grad school and play for a year.
