Nobody plays DI and DIII though, as far as I know. Pretty sure you're either one or the other.
ACHA (Amercian Collegiate Hockey Association) is club hockey, so it doesn't matter. You can't be NCAA DI and DIII, which is clearly what the other guy is talking about, since he's talking about scholarships, and there are no scholarships for ANY division of ACHA hockey, even ACHA DI. Michigan is NCAA DI and ACHA DII, the ACHA team is a club team. The ACHA still offers good, competitive hockey, but there's no scholarships, no chance to be scouted, etc. The best ACHA DI teams are on par with good NCAA DIII teams.
