WCHA commissioner Bruce McLeod stated that the University of Nebraska - Omaha is talking about joining the WCHA. To recap, Bemidji is a sure bet to enter the WCHA, but 11 won't do; it has to be twelve. UNO would be that twelfth and the recent hire of Dean Blais urged me to say that UNO would join. Here we are getting closer as we speak.
On the 09-10 schedule, most schools in the WCHA have released theirs. We are just waiting on CC and our UMD Bulldogs to finalize their schedules. We do ave a sneak peek of UMD's 09-10 schedule from Kevin Pates of the Duluth News Tribune. Of note is UMD will be at Michigan Technological University for next year's Winter Carnival. Start planning soon, it should be a great road trip!
