This whole story is 99% red flags and 1% blind homerism wishful thinking.

How was the story homerism? A good gopher doesn't want anything that will boost UND hockey. Some UND fans argue that the Big Ten Hockey will be an RPI killer, and they would be right for the past two seasons.

because you are saying a reporter not reporting something constitutes evidence said event is happening. that is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard.

And you're not a reporter are you. If a reporter mentions something his sources don't want mentioned, he loses his sources. That is pretty simple but yet you can't seem to grasp it.

john, chill out already.

He's not wrong that a reporter generally will not write about something like that, that his/her regular sources don't want written about.

RE: Gopher Illustrated reports that North Dakota will be
Our beat writer just tweeted that there is nothing new to report, and his last column on a possible Big Ten invite almost a year ago still stands.

http://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/u...ege-hockey

That column doesn't discuss the academic or monetary impact on a Big Ten move which would be huge. Mr Schlossman dwells on the hockey side exclusively.

His latest blog posting:

undhockey.areavoices.com/?p=105300

I still maintain that the move from the Big Sky is predicated on needing more FBS schools to start hockey now. Our former hockey coach who is now head coach of the Flyers stated the a Big Sky move was very strategic even for hockey. We refuse to be a small fry in hockey, and our goal was to get western FBS schools to start that sport. Getting in the Big Ten would suddenly make us Midwest focused again.

Well, if 7 doesn't work for scheduling ... they need to add someone else.

Seems like an easy choice, but I guess we'll see if they do anything.

Fans consigned to the WCHA hate UND because UND and Denver got the NCHC going, which effectively lowered the WCHA's status. Denver doesn't have the many Internet fans so they are no fun to pick at. Minny fans absolutely disdain us. Many fan bases hate UND because our fans take over their barns when we play. But their AD's like us for sellouts.

Thanks, I get what you're saying. Like I mentioned before, MSG was packed with Sioux fans.

Any guesses on when we might hear more on expansion of the BTHC, one way or the other? Not until after the NCAA tournament? Not until the end of the athletic school year (June-ish?)?

Not until the ND legislative session and the Frozen Four are complete. UND has a quite large exit fee from the NCIC, so that needs to be covered - either from a gift or from the Big Ten.

$1.5 mill is what I've heard. That is not large for a P5, but huge for a single sport conference, which don't normally have them. We are tight on money now, as our legislature will probably be p.o.ed, even if it's paid by a donor.

So we're getting two ND's (sorry UND, we will revert to ND and you may have to deal with that) in the conference? I approve of both additions if North Dakota is true.

If ND beats BU tonight, it wins the Hockey East regular season and would have the #1 seed in the Hockey East tournament.

Not a bad way to depart for another league next season.

Notre Dame is too good for any conference. The Irish should just go Independent in all sports.

Didn't realize that the Irish were near the top of HE this year. Here's HE in pairwise ( the top 16 in pairwise get in minus the teams that get AQ, which will be at least 2):

6 UMass-Lowell
8 BU
11 Providence
13 Notre Dame

The NCHC might get in 5 teams:

1 Denver
2 Mn-Duluth
5 WMU
13 UND
15 St Cloud St

The Big Ten is doing better this year

4 Minnesota
9 Penn St
11 Ohio St
16 Wisconsin

Very much approve of this move. If you are going to expand, go for powerful teams that regionally make sense and that the existing fanbases are going to be excited for good. Good move for the western big hockey schools (Notre Dame meanwhile is a good one for the eastern hockey members).
