How interesting!

I hope that Illinois (which is one of my alma maters) does indeed add hockey, based on this.

The local talent base is obviously there, and the B1G is a top hockey conference!

Doesn't seem like a difficult formula. Just need a HUGE donation for a rink, a la Penn State.

It does seem like a crime that Illinois has zero D-I programs.

Jimmy John or Shahid Khan or someone else needs to donate a hundred million to build an arena and fund a men's and women's team for a few years. "All" that it takes.

If Illinois could play D-1 and give the Big Ten an eighth team, that would be great and it would blunt some of the grumbling about the league.


If anyone reading this will be in or around Boston in a couple of weeks, by all means check out the annual Comm. Ave. Classic charity game featuring current and former pros from BU and BC.

Looks like the NHL might be on to something here

A new arena in downtown Champaign?
