    Seen a couple assorted threads related to NCAA hockey, but thought our small gang of hockey fans would do well to have an ongoing unified thread for the season, especially with several highly rated teams of interest.

    Last season saw three B1G teams make the Frozen Four. Much to the chagrin of the old guard, the conference is highly rated again early on in the new season. They'll beat up on eachother when conference play starts, but for now, we have six B1G teams in the top 14 / three in the top 5:

    Oh don't get me started! How in the hell can ASU have one and Utah and Arizona not? It's going to be awhile if ever at Utah since they just added Men's Lacrosse. I just don't get it. We've had hockey here forever on various club levels, have a nice rink(s) right by the campus they use, and a decent hockey fan base that used to outdraw the NHL cities that had minor league teams back in the day (CHL, IHL, AHL).

    Who would think Ohio State and Penn State would become hockey schools? When I was in college 20 years ago, both were okay in hockey but that's it.

    Well, PSU was non-existent (not sure when OSU started).

    OSU was decent during the CCHA years but were never among the top of the league (for the most part). PSU was the elite club hockey team in the ACHA. They were champs or runners up for something like 10 years straight in the 90's and 00's. The whole D-1 & Club hockey thing still confuses me. I'm a huge hockey person. My son is a squirt and he has cousins and uncles that have played AAA & College Hockey.

    Yeah, my comment was about not being in D-1. Club doesn't get any scholarships (from the university, at least), I believe. There was one year in either the late 90's/early 00's that OSU made the NCAA tournament, I think.

    Maybe when they had Kesler?

    Yeah, that's why it's amazing that they've become relevant so quickly. They do have crazy good resources though so it shouldn't be surprising I guess.

    The Bucks have had some good teams. They've never really been bad since I was in school. They seem like they get better every year though.

    Looking back we had about a half dozen players from Salt Lake play D1 in the early 1980's which is pretty amazing since the "official" state high school championship didn't start until 1975. We had guys play at Wisconsin, Denver, Colorado College. So I always kinda pull for them still. Oh and my friend works at Ferris State. When he got the job he was surprised I knew about the school. I replied, "of course I do, they have a good hockey team!".

    Whoa! Wasn't expecting that. Guessing it was IB -- I just wonder if he'll unpin it after ND inevitably gets knocked off the top of the hill :rolleyes:

    Will be amazed if ND manages to get a W tonight.

    Just the way the roster is set up. Will be interesting to see how they do against this kind of competition this early in the year

    This morning it was semi cold in Tulsa and I pulled out my UAF Nanooks hoodie out of the closet. Went to a few games in Fairbanks when I was there. One kid that played there actually played for the Tulsa Oilers in the minor leagues. Do enjoy hockey and always a Red Wings fan. Good luck to everyone's team.

    I have a Nanooks Under Armour shirt. People think it's a made up school. They're #3 of the 9 teams I try to follow.

    Quinnipiac is back. 4-0 to start the year beating Vermont, Boston College, UCONN and now AIC. We cut a bunch of bad eggs from last year and brought in 11+ freshman. It appears all are back buying into the system. Hoping for a good year since my football teams (Rutgers & Giants) all suck.

    Well ND went 0-2 against Minni D. What I expected. The offense just isnt there.

    Will be a tough season the rest of the year. Hope they can get something put together for conference play

    Honestly expected that. Thought it was odd they even ranked ND above them to begin with.

    So ND will have to turn off the big number 1 on campus and try to find some offense
