    (Editor's note: Rating is calculated by dividing number of viewers by the total # of viewers available in the market. Share is calculated by dividing number of viewers by only those people watching TV at that time. So with a 50 share, 1 of every 2 active viewers in the Marquette DMA was watching the game.)

    Additionally, FoxUP brought in as much revenue from the pregame and game telecasts as they did for the Super Bowl.
    That is awesome!!!

    Second item, moving this thread forward for the summer is our own DavyD who said this on Twitter:




    Great news!

    Schedule will be released next Wednesday! I know I'm going to try to work to see what weekend would be best for an Alumni weekend (or at least an Alumni Saturday).

    Promotions for the upcoming year! It seems that after well over a decade of ideas drummed up on this forum, on Facebook, on Twitter, on the old CatHockey.com, over AOL Instant Messenger, e-mail, and repeated marketing questionnaires from the University, the University is *FINALLY* doing some things to promote the team. They really missed the boat on the 40th anniversary of the program, so it's nice to read that they're investing more into their crown jewel sports program to draw fans in.

    I'm sure I'll have some snark to say once the schedule and promotions are released, but so far this is promising!

    Couple items I'll break into different posts. First, Dave Shyiak shared his Humboldt Bronco's jerseys with the Twitter world:

    Also, NMU forward Joe Nardi was teammates with Humboldt Bronco defenceman Stephen Wack in 15-16 (on the Whitecourt Wolverines, AJHL) and worked out in the summers with Bronco Logan Hunter.


    I'm sure there are other ties to the Wildcats as well.

    Thank you Ralph.

    The Wildcat family is once again struck with tragedy.

    Interesting of note, his six games, or even his name, don't show up anywhere in the official all-time player records.

    There's often some juggling/finalizing of schedules going on at the annual coaches meeting in Naples FL at the end of April, so anytime after that seems likely.
