Gonzaga Hockey?


Recommended Posts

How about Gonzaga hockey? http://www.spokesman...g-div-1-hockey/

Pro: What if the fairy dust falls off the shoulders of the basketball program someday?

Con: Facilities issues.

Pro: Top tier college hockey would appeal to fans who can't get into versions of the sport where fighting is an accepted part of the game. (Fight in college hockey and you're gone, and not just for five minutes.)

Con: Ruinous travel costs. Nearest Division 1 programs are in Alaska, North Dakota, Colorado and Nebraska.

Pro: Academic fit. For a variety of reasons both social and cultural, Division 1 college hockey players typically excel in the classroom. Harvard and Yale, et cetera, compete at the highest level of college hockey.

Con: Would be starting at zero re: establishing rivalries.
