            ok, we're talking about schools that have expressed interest or have had rumors about interest... I know every thread seems to be a chucklehead thread nowadays, but really.

                          How could you leave Syracuse out of your list? Like the robins retuning in the springtime, there is an annual Syracuse to add hockey thread somewhere every year it seems. There was a report when Darryl Gross took over as AD that he was considering it. I believe that they actually did some sort of study, but concluded that they'd have to build an arena. Buffalo actually gave it a serious look under Warde Manuel but when he left for UConn it was dropped. He was the Assistant AD who oversaw hockey at Michigan, and has a real affinity for the sport. Rhode island actually studied the feasibility of upgrading when Boss was built. They spent time, at least informally, going around to a number of AHA schools including UConn, Holy Cross and I think Bentley collecting information on costs, attendance scheduling and so forth. A friend's kid was a grad student there at the time and worked on the study. there is some thought that St Anselms will move up to take UConn's old spot in AHA when the Huskies go to Hockey East.

                            It would never happen in Syracuse.

                              Central Michigan and Grand Valley State have been tossed around as well as rumors.

                                THN column that mentions this rumor as well as Canisius' new rink.

                                The news of this partnership comes at a coincidental time, as Twitter was abuzz on the weekend with rumors of the University of Illinois joining the new Big Ten hockey conference in the future. As it turned out, the “big announcement” revolved around new uniforms for the school’s club team, but bringing Division I hockey back to Illinois is long overdue.
