There are also 9 division 1 hockey schools located within a 6 hour drive of Fargo. There's lots of talent to recruit but lots of people recruiting. Those 9 schools also all have or will have dedicated arena's in which they are the major tenant. NDSU would need significant amounts of money in order to compete. Seems like it would be a much easier task to improve basketball than sinking money into hockey. I love the sport of hockey but to me it doesn't make much sense at NDSU unless there is a significant private money stream that is willing to get it off the ground like Penn State had.
