You're from Michigan? I live in Michigan.
Are the university teams 'officially sanctioned' by their respective schools and do they receive any funding? I just have never seen the type of 'varsity' sports system that we have at the high school and collegiate levels in the United States elesewhere in the World outside of a somewhat similar system in Canada.
The team that the US sends is made up of Division I Non-Varsity players (i.e. club), they aren't too bad, about Junior "A" caliber for the most part. Which is odd because I don't see how outside of Canada the other countries could have good university hockey.
