    Default Get Hockey to NDSU thread

    NDSU needs hockey

    1. Mid major basketball is make the tourney every 3 or 4 years type deal. Plus, in our region, hockey draws better.

    2. Title IX would be a problem. Women's hockey is a huge drain. However, if you took the difference between mens and womens hockey vs mens and womens hockey. I"d think hockey would be more profitable.

    3. Niche sport. It's true, but we live in the middle of hockey country. So who cares, its not like NDSU regular season games are ever on ESPN.

    4. Could Scheels arena house both Force and NDSU hockey

    5. This is all the $70ish million question.

    6. It seems stupid we have wrestling and baseball, but not hockey.

    I like to surround myself with people who share in my inappropriate comments, sarcasm, and random shenanigans

    It seems stupid to you. NDSU obviously feels different.

    When you play football, you gotta like the taste of blood, And 50 percent of the time, it's your blood.

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    One reason is that lot of us don't give a s*** about hockey.
    The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

    So hockey would make a tourney ever big assumption....would have to out recruit a lot of proven programs...
    Hockey is a much higher input cost then Basketball so assuming a higher profit is a stretch
    Hockey regular season wouldn't be on ESPN either sorry
    It seems stupid people keep bringing up hockey

    Why does NDSU "need" hockey? Nowhere in your post did you backup that statement. Ndsu does not need hockey. /thread.
    I don't care how the vote ended up. They still suck and always will.

    .

    LOL Wut?? Difference would be 0. Not sure what sport you were comparing to hockey, but likely no. If it didn't take a lot of money why did you put it at $70 million question then?
