Most of the Big Ten wont play at non Big Ten schools.

Minnesota cancelled the DQ Cup against the four Minny teams when Notre Dame was added to the B1G hockey.

Sad they cancelled that Cup. Was a great way to generate excitement.

Also, should surprise no one the Big 10 doesn't travel out-of-conference. UMich consistently schedules bottom-feeders to play at home out-of-conference.

It is at the club level.

It is at the club level.

There are several levels of club teams, but no Southern team was at the top level of the ACHA until Alabama moved there recently The competition is probably analogous to NCAA DIIi. There are rumors that Alabama will build a college rink on campus and go varsity. That move would serve to continue lure northern students that have recently sent Alabama to record enrollmemts when Saban moves on.

Could see a future SEC type league with Tennessee,Vandy, Georgia, UAH and one other.

Don't see it honestly. Maybe at an isolated school like UAH but not widespread SEC participation. I think Mizzou would be a good match to start a program but with their recent issues impacting the bottom line that probably won't happen.
