University of Illinois to add D1 hockey?

This. Would. Be. Awesome!

Here's where I saw it, but it links to some tweets by Let's Play Hockey

Talk in club hockey says that Jimmy John's founder Jimmy John Liautaud could be looking at funding Illinois' jump from club to DI hockey.

Jimmy John's is headquartered in Champaign, Ill., also the home of the University of Illinois. Liautaud is a native of Illinois.

OK so initial excitement over, at this point it's still quite a long shot that U of I adds D1 hockey, but it's the first anything that I've heard about it. Far be it from me to take one random tweet as fact, but you can bet I'll be following this closely. Growing the Big 10 hockey league can only be good for the game.
