    Perhaps all of those little pieces left afterward can join the CCHA, to save that conference!

It appears that the NCHC has several other teams also wanting to join it and the B1G may be able to use hockey as leverage over football.

        I see no reason for the B1G to not try. They never had it before and now that they do I see no reason to not use it.

          From what I have heard, the Big Ten did try, and Notre Dame declined. Not because it preferred another hockey conference, but because it's preference to not join the Big Ten for football was stronger.

          Translation: Their independent TV deal for football brings them more money than they would gain from playing in the BTHC.

            Why would the Big Ten agree to this if it wasn't including football? And if there was a chance in hell of Notre Dame joining in football, Nebraska would not have just joined the conference.

              From what I heard, the Big Ten put out a feeler last year (when it was rumored Penn State would be adding a men's team) to see if Notre Dame had any interest in joining the Big Ten in hockey and football. I heard the answer was, no thank you.

              So, that's why we have Nebraska in the Big Ten for football and Notre Dame isn't being considered for the Big Ten in hockey.

                It's a valid point there, but I would think the Irish would laugh the big ten out of the if they tried to use the hockey team to reel in perhaps the biggest prize in college sports in ND football. They've got plenty of other options to go to than to the big ten.

                    As a conference, the Big Ten is going to want them in all sports, including football and hoops. As long as NBC keeps paying for the broadcast rights for Irish football, Notre Dame's not making the jump to the Big Ten or any other conference.

                    Thus, Notre Dame won't be a hockey member for a while.

                      Minnesota High School Hockey has a video game, so college hockey should.
