Think these games (not necessarily with these teams) would go off better in cities like Boston, Detroit, or Minneapolis where the college game hits a bit closer to home.
Agree with this as well. A Winter Classic at Soldier Field? That would be pretty awesome. College hockey with the closest campus being an hour and a half away? Ehh.

One of the great things about college sports are the fan bases. Putting on a hockey game where the fan base has to drive for at least a couple hours doesn't make much sense.

It's the same reason I don't like early season tournaments in college basketball. Nobody really cares about them and nobody wants to go to them.
