While there is no ACAA hockey they would be playing against teams like Holland College.
He did say that if the decide to pack it up the announcement would be made around the end of the season.

Hopefully it does not come to pass.
Hey Rob, I am sure your source is solid but I will say that this is exactly how rumors get blown out of proportion. I just made a phone call myself and I was told unequivocally that this is false.

This would be a top level decision that would not be kicked around faculty for the sake of talking about it. I have no doubt that STU faculty does speak about this subject but it really wouldn't be much different than what we do on here.

This sort of gossip serves to create doubt and ultimately serves to hurt the program.

I won't be back on here in April or May to reply to this again to say "I told you so" but will do it now instead to save time…."I told you so".
