re collegiate hockey:

i believe we have had discussions in the past about the potential of a PAC-12 (currently represented by the ACHA DII Pac-8 conference) Division I hockey league, but it has always come back to the fact that it would cost too much (basically 50 athletes per university to subsidize with title 9).

would be sweet to see, and great for the game of hockey in the pacific region. If they could find some hockey-loving benefactor(s) to put in about half a billion in endowment across those 8 teams (UCB, UCLA, UO, USC, Stanford, UU, UW, WSU), i could see those programs catching on and becoming revenue neutral (mens hockey would pay for women's hockey) over the course of 15 years or so.
