Given the popularity of college hockey, it'd be tough to allocate the resources to get a true live-scoring site a la Yahoo/ESPN/etc, as they do in football/baseball/basketball (pro or otherwise).

In talking to Adam Wodon the last few days, CHN's score update page uses the conference live scores we've talked about. I.E., they are as good as the school's Sports Information/Media Relations people. As Adam told me, they don't have the resources to pay people to sit at every game and input scores.

I showed Adam my suggestion for a "better" score updater page, and he liked it. No promises that it would be used, however.

edit - he also said that one problem is that a lot of the links for live stats and radio feeds change on a yearly basis, and tracking that info down is quite time consuming. If it were submitted for each school by a fan, that would help a ton...

Well, knowing the ineptitude of some of the SID's (see the "Fire Ian Marks" thread), not much chance at this getting better. (don't mean to rip on all SID's, I'm sure most are competant)

I know at Ferris State, our Sports Information Director, Joe Gorby does an outstanding job with manually updating the score and time of the game FOR OUR WEBSITE, http://FerrisStateBulldogs.com/Sports/Mice

So if you go to the site, you will see "Scoreboard" at the top/middle section of our page. During the game, that shows the time, period, and score based on what Gorby adds. For the most part, I sit next to him in the press box and see him update this constantly.

Is it possible for CHN or any score tracker website to use that feed maybe?
