…you know, just a group of guys, unjustly blamed for everybody else’s problems, who are ganged up on by everybody, when all they want is to maintain their home turf. Hey, that might make a good movie….

Which means this entirely comes down to funding.
The PSUAC isn't in the NCAA, it's in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association.
But the Penn State system does have campuses that are NCAA D3: Behrend (Erie area), Altoona, Harrisburg, Penn Tech (Williamsport), Abington, Berks.
Also LIU is combining their 2 separate athletic departments on 2 campuses (a D2 and a D1) into one D1 athletic department that will have the sports distributed across both campuses (Brooklyn and CW Post).
So, it can be done. There is still hope...
(PS. I'm a newbie on this board. Still learning how it works)

So...if I have this correct...classes at the UA campuses begin 27 August but the Board of Regents won't meet again until September? They're taking the entire month of August off? Isn't this kind of important? Or are they just going to have the president make all the decisions himself? They understand they're on the clock, right? That there is only so much money and eventually they are going to run out, and the more they spend now the deeper the cuts are going to have to be later? Employee contracts at UAA are set to begin 10 August. It might behoove them to take action before that date. Maybe even before new students start showing up for orientation next week?
Just an idea...
It's like you have a house on some property. The government needs the property for whatever, but not the house. They offer pennies on the dollar for the property. Since they don't need the house and have made that clear, you throw the party to end all parties on one of the last days you still have possession of the house. Said party goes full Animal House and just destroys the house. In the end, the house is uninhabitable but the local government doesn't care since the wrecking ball is coming next week. And you got to have one last Hurrah! before you head off to your new place...
It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

Well isn't it cut and dry...the two hockey programs are toast...no sugar coating it.
i was thinking about the damage, even if the teams survive, recruiting-wise...
then it crossed my mind; if you were a AK_ coach, would you not feel the same way?
that its not a problem only for recruited players or current players - that's a problem for the coaching staff as well.
would you not be looking to find a place to land some somewhre else?
its not the same wait and see type situation like at UAH.
lord knows bill robertson ain't sitting on his hands...
Not sure what to read into the fact that a '98 just committed to UAF, but here's his announcement:
Even if the Alaska schools survive
the next couple of years, they very well could be without a conference in 2021 after more possible realignment. Could they survive as independent teams?
