    Not unexpected, although I'm not sure what magically changes between now and then.

    The Big Ten announced they will start play possibly as soon as Nov 13, with Arizona State playing 4 away games at each of the Big Ten schools for 28 games total for each team. ASU isn't eligible for the conference tournament and will get 4 home games from each of the big ten schools at some point in the future.

    It will be interesting to see if the NCHC announces anything soon. The original statement said they thought Nov 20 or later.

    I watched David Saylor’s interview with Steve Baker and he made it seem like the nchc was going to do a “bubble” like concept for December games and play about 1/2 the schedule and then try and limit the travel for the back part of the season.

    Putting a bunch of college age male hockey players in a confined hotel space with nothing to do during a J term in the middle of North Dakota or in upper Minnesota in late December / early January............what could possibly happen?

    I must have missed that interview, when was it?

    That's an interesting idea. Without needing to travel you could probably play more games in a shorter timespan and maybe there would be more potential for TV if you had games on weeknights vs the normal friday, saturday.

    The interview was from the website. Maybe 2-3 weeks ago

    Looks like the NCHC will be entering the bubble. But...saves money on travel!! I’m sure we will send those dollars to men’s basketball!

    It says that the matchups in the bubble would be chosen based on limiting air travel in the rest of the season with 10 games over three weeks.

    Based on reducing travel, with the current NCHC schedule with 24 games it seems logical that they'd prioritize the Colorado schools getting their games against us and WMU done. So we could play something like CC 4x, Denver 2x and UND 4x. But they might bump it up to 28 games since there won't be any non-conference games and then we might play CC 4x, Denver 4x and UND 2x and still play UND again during the rest of the season.

    Per a quick Google search

    January is the coldest month in Grand Forks, with an average high-temperature of 16.5°F (-8.6°C) and an average low-temperature of -3.1°F (-19.5°C)

    So much for packing the golf clubs

    Yep, we were going to make the trip this season in late November. The average temperature in Grand Forks then is lower than the coldest week in Oxford.

    Just came here to post that.

    Would be incredibly weird watching games at Cady on teevee.
