Fox Sports Ohio carries the CCHA championships

For those who have grown weary of playing out the string, I think I have just the remedy for you.  And no, it's not endless college basketball.

Nope, the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) is holding what I believe will be their final championship tournament this weekend at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit - and it's a darned good brand of hockey to witness.  Good college hockey has a ton of energy and enthusiasm with nary a fight to be seen.  Diehard Blue Jackets fans will find it a surprisingly fun type of hockey.

Even better for the homers, both perennial power Miami (OH) and the tournament's Cinderella team, Bowling Green, have made it to the final four.  Oh yeah, Fox Sports Ohio has announced that they will be covering the semifinal and final rounds!
Here are the relevant excerpts from the FSO press release on the topic - helpful stuff so you know where to look on your "dial":
