New DI Women's Hockey schools

Recommended Posts

Article in today's Strib about the possibility of the University of St. Thomas and Northern Michigan adding DI women's hockey...both in discussion phase with WCHA but both have some internals to figure out....One interesting note from the commish of WCHA women's hockey..."St. Thomas has an 800 seat arena ready for use which would be about the right size for women's D I hockey"....maybe that's an issue...separate venues as the light attendance often looks sad in large men's arenas.

800 seats is about 650 too many. Nobody cares about women's hockey except friends and family of the players.

St Thomas Academy playa there, so they get more support than either UST teams.

I also wonder if the WCHA is starting to think about how they are going to protect themselves if/when there is 6 Big Ten teams that play women's hockey.

I doubt the B1G cares about its 6 team rule in that case.

When the million of B1G WIH fans are glued to the TV to watch their glorious WIH teams, then the Big Ten Network will insist on it.
