      The measuring contest is easier to win in the B1G locker room.

        "The Big Ten has over a half-dozen teams poised* to add hockey within the next twenty years..."
        Which is why the first team to be added was... whoops, a team not in the BigTen.

        * BigTen definition of "poised" = "I really wish we could add a hockey team too..."

          This thing read like one of those "sponsored content" links that clogs up Facebook and Yahoo.

            That article seems to mirror the B1G hockey conference nicely. A lot of arrogance and bluster, not much content.
            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

              But 6(7?) FBS schools can control the agenda at NCAA meetings. They get more in the B1G and the B1G will be the USSR to the rest of the hockey playing communities Finland (with the playups playing the role of Andorra).

                I'm confused as to the point of that article. Was there something newsworthy in that article? Or was it just a fluff piece meant to try to prove the "dominance" of the the B10.

                      Five out of the seven teams including Notre Dame that are members of the Big Ten hockey conference have been division one hockey programs since 1947, the year the league was officially formed. Ohio State joined in 1963, Penn State in 2012. The teams, other than Penn State, are not new to division one college hockey. A power conference, one that has distinct advantages over all other conferences, is a new reality that hockey fans will have to grow to accept.
                      Wait a minute. Notre Dame definitely did not have a D-I team yet when I started college in 1964-65. Wisconsin's program was quite new and independent at the time. That makes it three.

                      Notre Dame also gave up on hockey for a year or two in the early 1980's.

                        "The Fabled Big Ten Hockey Conference"?? Fabled is not one of the adjectives that comes to mind when thinking about Big 10 hockey.

                            That they do, like it or not. And it's not hockey that drives it. It's the other sports the conference is involved in. Hockey is the tagalong sibling.
