CCHA Denies Huntsville

The CCHA has denied Alabama-Huntsville's application to join the CCHA, leaving UAH's program in jeopardy.

I honestly can't understand why they would do that. The move effectively kills hockey at Huntsville and leaves the CCHA at an uneven 11 teams--unless the CCHA has a feeling they'll be losing another team soon. Even still, with college hockey struggling to expand, it seems awfully foolish to let an existing program just fade away. Hopefully there is more to this story and it has a better ending.
