    I think there are some (not you obviously), who just assume because we're from D-III and not a nationally known school like UMTC, UW, or BC, that we must be small and never actually find out whether that is true or not... ignorant, like you said.
    Granted, RIT may be (I have no idea) one of the largest D-III colleges in the country since many D-III's are small. But not all are.
    I doubt I would have known how large the school actually is if it wasn't for a high school buddy of mine that did grad work there.

      Then again I am from the part of the country in which "Monstrous State-name University" is the popular template.
      There are no such Monstrous State U's around this state at least. No RIT is not huge, but they are the 13th largest private university in the US. I'd say that qualifies as big. The 35k - 50k State U's are in a class of their own, so to speak. Once you drop down from those gigantic numbers, 17k is pretty big. There are far more schools nationally (and in hockey) in the 5k - 10k range than there are > 20k, that's for sure.
      Can't we all just get along?
      Always remember... This is just a game we're talking about here. Let's not take it all too seriously.

        The problem I see with this set up is if MSU-Moorhead ends up in the WCHA (IF they start a program), you would end up with schools from the same conference playing each other. You would have Minnesota from the Big Ten, Duluth from the NCHC, and then BSU, MSU-M and M, and St. Cloud from the WCHA. Not sure if those four from the WCHA would want to play a conference team in the tourney?
        Michigan and Michigan State more often than not end up playing each other at the GLI every year. And its not like Tech doesn't invite other WCHA teams to come join the party there.

        True. Hell, people all the time think of Norte Dame as a huge school, but they only have an enrollment of students thats under 12,000. Enrollment wise, Ferris State is bigger with 13,000.
        bueller: Why is the sunset good? Why are boobs good? Why does Positrack work? Why does Ferris lose on the road and play dead at home?

        It just happens.
