    Notre Dame's closest opponent in HEA is about as far as Minnesota, their furthest opponent, in the BTHC. It's a bad fit.

    The BTN and NBCSN aren't mutually exclusive. Everything is negotiable now.
    Having read John Bacon's new book, Endzone- I think the hard feelings between ND and some B1G schools is still pretty strong. And certainly much shorter than 10 years ago.

    One more think we can all blame Brandon for.

      That's BS, and you OUGHT to know it. The "Big 10 MUST take over hockey once half the members have d1 teams" rule is, and always was a myth.

      Either way, we all still HATE you...AND the nacho bunch too.

        Tough. Deal with it.

        If you want to hate, that's your problem.

          You'd think they'd all be rejoicing. It took a group of 5 teams that had a chance at the tournament every year and made it a one bid league. More chances for everyone else!

            Obviously not an ECAC fan. They've done well with the B1G as a conference.

                My guess is most likely candidates are:

                ASU
                UND
                UMD (it is the University of MN afterall)

                I don't think ND makes larger B1G reasons already stated.

                  I would wager a LOT that tUMD never gets an invite to the Big Ten
                  tUMD is Jan Brady per Brenthoven. Whew.... thanks for clearing THAT up.

                    From GPL:

                    Here are my predictions:

                    50% Tier
                    1. ASU. Because it's new and shiny
                    2. Notre Dame. Because it makes sense to everyone involved.
                    -----25% Tier
                    3. Duluth - My line of thinking was the same as yours, it's under the umbrella.
                    -----5% Tier
                    4. UNO - Same line, but I think less so
                    -----.5% Tier
                    5. UConn - because why not
                    6. North Dakota
                    7. Mankato
                    8. Miami
                    -----.05% Tier
                    9. BC
                    10. BU
                    Code:
                    As of 9/21/10:         As of 9/13/10:
                    College Hockey 6       College Football 0

                      Shouldn't the sum of those probabilities = 2.0 or something?

                      Never mind for some reason I keep thinking they'll add two teams, and that was never confirmed.

                        Did I miss a link, or other piece of information that actually says "The B10 will add Hockey Programs"? And if so, what link, and was there a time frame mentioned. Because otherwise, it is all hopeful, yet meaningless, jibber jabber. So, info on a link please.
                        Thank you.

                          This.

                          And once the B1G started to form, MN pretty much had to join, or lose out on ALL sports in the B1G. MN fans hate the B1G as much as everyone else.

                            This MN fan loves the B1G. So glad it happened. Michigan. Michigan State, Ohio State, and Penn State are conference foes in every other sport. Only seems right for them to be conference foes in my favorite sport as well.
                            National championships won by Big Ten schools : 23 (Michigan 9, Wisconsin 6, Minnesota 5, Michigan State 3, Ohio State 0, Penn State 0, Notre Dame 0)
                            National championships won by NCHC schools : 21 (North Dakota 8, Denver 8, MN-Duluth 3, Colorado College 2, St. Cloud State 0, Miami 0, NE-Omaha 0, Western Michigan 0)

                            23 > 21

                              I refer back to my statement that tArrogance does not currently accept you as One Of Us. This is one of the reasons why.

                                I'm guessing here but I think it was this Tweet from Rick Pizzo (BigTen Network): "@BTNRickPizzo: The league is not staying at 6 for long. Trust me here https://t.co/pmqzNSAQWa" that started this thread at least. Personally I think it is still just speculation but you have to believe at some point in the not too distant future the conference will expand somehow.

                                I don't think any 6 teams as a conference would do well playing a schedule like the B1G (4 games against the other five teams in the league). Don't get me wrong, the correct six teams with the correct non-conference schedule and performance could manage to get 3 teams into the tourney but it would be very tough I think.
