Tomorrow's Podcast: Geof Morris

The last lull in the season ends on Thursday as the Engineers travel south of the Mason-Dixon Line to face-off with college hockey's lone independent team, the Alabama-Huntsville Chargers. With that in mind, we're going to chat with Geof F. Morris, founder of Save UAH Hockey, a cause much of the college hockey world - at least on the fan's side - has gotten behind.

2010 has not been kind to the Chargers. Although they appeared in the NCAA Tournament last year, they have had to deal with hit after hit ever since. The CHA folded at the end of last season, leaving them without a conference. They've only been able to put together a record of 2-16-2. Their coach, Danton Cole, left the program to take over the USNTDP U-17 team. And just this month, the school's athletic director, Jim Harris, passed away unexpectedly.

We'll talk to Geof to find out how morale is in the Deep South these days, and find out what the immediate future has in store for the Chargers.

Without any college hockey action to speak of since last week, we'll also talk about the World Junior Championships currently underway in Buffalo, and take you through the lineup of New Year's tournaments ready to get going throughout the college hockey world.
