    College Hockey Expansion

    The Anaheim Ducks have opened their practice facility in Irvine. The main arena seats 2500,which is small for college hockey but could be doable. UC-Irvine is nearby and Cal State-Fullerton is just up the freeway. http://www.cityofirvine.org/orange-county-great-park/great-park-ice A number of NHL practice facilities could host new college teams, like in St Louis for Lindenwood, Islanders in a Nassau County for Long island U, and others like the Ducks and Stars,

    March Madness 2019

    Fletcher Magee, the all time leading 3 pt scorer in NCAA history, was 0-12 from three point range. If he hit at least two of those, Wofford would have taken Kentucky to OT. https://www.aseaofblue.com/2019/3/23/18278697/kentucky-wildcats-highlights-box-score-game-mvp-uk-wofford-ncaa-basketball

    Two Tier System for ND Hockey

    Theoretically, EGF Riverside Christian School could co-op too. Think they co-op with Sacred Heart now. But the GF schools wouldn’t do it because of many factors.

    Two Tier System for ND Hockey

    They co-op with Breckinridge for hockey only. Another co-op, Fairmont-Campbell-Tintah chooses between MN or ND. Don't have hockey. Westby-Grenora chooses Montana.

    March Madness 2019

    When SDSU won on a miracle bucket at NDSU, figured that SDSU was much more vulnerable than people believed and the tides of luck would turn for NDSU. So many times, NCAA championships have been won by teams that had trouble in the first round. NCST won over Pepperdine in OT in their Valvano run when they easily should have lost multiple times. And teams that roll over others usually fall because they haven’t overcome much adversity.

    March Madness 2019

    The ASun should have had two bids: Liberty and Lipscomb. Lipscomb didn’t get one but Liberty won their first game. The OVC got two bids: Murray St and Belmont. Murray St won impressively over Marquette and Belmont has gone 1-1. The bottom of those conferences are trash, but the top is stronger than the media gives them credit for.

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    The American Conference just signed a $1 billion deal with ESPN. That is a huge increase from the last deal and will result in each team with $7 mill / yr, rather than $2 mill / yr. UConn, Cincy and USF still won’t get the kind of money that they got from the Big East when it still had football. https://www.ctpost.com/uconn/article/AAC-ESPN-reportedly-reach-agreement-on-12-year-13701244.php

    WSJ: Oil Booms in North Dakota

    The US is now becoming a world leader in natural gas exports, thanks to the shale fields. The Marcellus and Utica fields mostly produce gas. This spring saw the lowest amount of stored natural (in caverns and caves) gas in some decades as there is now enormous amounts of gas that cryogenicallly cooled to make liquid methane (LNG) for export. Of course the production rate is at a record high. More of these export plants, which are hugely expensive, are going up in coastal cities. https://www.fool.com/investing/2019/02/23/heres-why-2019-will-be-a-big-year-for-american-lng.aspx

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    They have a new AD who has big plans. http://www.umkckangaroos.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=18300&ATCLID=211780704 UMKC and Murray St are going to the MVC in his dreams. He needs to get rid of most of the players too.

    March Madness 2019

    How does Wofford win a game in the dance? They were rated going into it and they have an outstanding 3pt shooter in Magee that now has the record for most 3’s made ever in DI. But Wofford only had less than 1700 undergrads and has never won a game in postseason before and only been qualified for DI since 1997. But they have a big booster in Jerry Richardson of the Carolina Panthers (formerly?). Some of their previous visits to the dance were helped by Noah Dahlman, Braham, Minnesota, who went on to play with pro European teams. Wofford used to recruit a lot in Minnesota when they wasn’t much competition for recruits below the BIG. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/26327479/wofford-magee-breaks-ncaa-career-3s-record Zion Williamson is also from Spartanburg, where Wofford is situated.

    NCAA admits they are corrupt

    Some of the schemer cheaters that got their kids into swell Universities said their girls were rowers, paid half a million in bribes or gifts, and got their girls accepted. But they didn’t need to scheme. The rowing scholarships have gone from just over 200 in 1980 to over 5500 today because of Title IX needs for football schools. Many gals don’t even have rowing experience get scholarships if they have the build for it. https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/no-athletic-experience-no-problem-heres-a-college-scholarship/

    Minnesota has visited with him. Was on the basketball team that made a state run too. His B.B. teammate might be a good athlete for Jones to look at. The Hs fb coach is DeVries’s father.
