Michigan. Cornell has a pretty good one though, and the degree, even for a jock, means a lot more once you graduate. And if you're playing in the NCAA, the odds are very much against you ever cracking the NHL. Even the AHL is rare, and that's not nearly enough money to live the rest of your life on, so you're gonna need that degree.

However, if you weren't able to figure all that out on your own, perhaps Michigan would be a better fit.

Michigan. They get better players (not least of all because of the lure of athletic scholarships, something Cornell can't offer), have played and still play in a stronger conference, and don't rely on an overly defensive system. Cornell has a very good team every few years, but nothing like Michigan.

Belongs in the college forum more than the main NHL board.

University of Ontario Institute of Technology. They play in the Ontario conference which has 2 divisions (East and West) in CIS hockey. Last year they finished 7th in the west division (out of 9 teams). This year they will likely be better than that. That is a really big shock though. The shots were 56-28 Michigan however. I know that almost every year you get to see Manitoba play against UND. Manitoba is a much stronger team than UOIT.

Didn't see the box score but the shots are a bit lopsided,although I have always been in the camp where shots on goal are a bit overrated. The Sioux played Regina last night and it was a one sided affair. Manitoba have always given the Sioux their best but Regina was way overmatched in an 8-1 blowout.

Could be downhill

Michigan hockey could be stumbling. Losing to a team like UOIT which is one of the worst teams in Canadian CIS hockey is a prelude to a bad year. Besides the way players are being recruited and signed at Michigan is questionable. Are the best players really being recruited?

Hockey will end at some point in time for everyone, at the end of the day it is about the education. Being able to flash a piece of paper to a potential employer from an Ivy league school such as Cornell will put these young men way ahead of the game...IMO

So the other non-Ivy league schools provide an inferior education?

Absolutely not!! There is however, a certain status of prestige or distinction attached to an ivy league school which would work in a student's favor.

Michigan has more players in the NHL than any other DI hockey program, probably more than most CHL teams for that matter. They also made the finals last year so it doesn't seem the program is in shambles based on a loss to a CIS team.

Also, in the academic rankings of American Universities, Cornell is ranked 15th, Michigan is ranked 29th top University. That close of a ranking hardly gives Cornell grads a large advantage in the professional world. UM has always been known for academic prestige.
