The Official Big Six Hockey Thread

Well, the Minnesota and Wisconsin ADs decided to go after the filthy lucre of Big 10 revenues and media muscle. They will be joining the storied programs of Michigan and Michigan State, upstart Penn state, who aquitted themselves nicely in their initial year, and I think there's a team from Ohio or something like that as well.

I have mixed emotions about leaving the WCHA. It will be nice since I only have to travel 30 and 40 minutes to see the Badgers at Ann Arbor and Lansing respectively. Also the Badgers have contracts in place for multiple year series with North Dakota and a split series with DU/CC, kind of like the forgone holiday showcase they had with Sparty and Mich. On the other hand, I just can't get enthused about series with Penn State and OSU the same way I would for say, St. Cloud or Duluth. We'll see if it's a positive thing for fans of the programs or not.

Welcome new conference foes, your team better tighten the chinstraps when Bucky comes to town!
