It's been a rumor for a while now, but very interesting if this actually comes to fruition. But it's a long shot, as there's no way that the Big Pond is viable as a Division I arena, and there hasn't been any real news about building either a specific ice arena for a varsity team or building a replacement to the Assembly Hall that could be basketball and hockey functional, other than a rumor here and there that doesn't go anywhere. If Jimmy's actually interested in donating towards funding a varsity hockey team, it's not going to be in the millions of dollars but the tens of millions to make it at all possible.

I'd absolutely love if it happened, as the Illini club hockey team is the team I've seen the most live, by far, but not holding my breath any time this decade, unfortunately.
