Seems like a solid choice. Does this mean the America East thing is dead? Or is it more likely with a UNH guy in charge?

From the reporting on the situation, it seems the proposal was pretty much not going to happen from the moment someone brought it up, but they did the polite thing and at least heard the pitch before just saying no.

Good. Only worry I have is I don’t trust the Big 10 to do the right thing ever. Seems the hockey community ought to get direct access though since only one all sports league sponsors it. The rest are single sport entities
