    That's Test One, so they must be using one of the other of the Three Tests:

    Test One – proportionality; provide intercollegiate or interscholastic participation opportunities for women and men at rates that are proportionate to their respective rates of enrollment; or

    Test Two – continued program expansion for the underrepresented sex; show that opportunities have been added for the underrepresented sex (nearly always girls and women) as their interests and abilities have developed and evolved; or

    Test Three – full accommodation of the underrepresented sex; fully accommodate the underrepresented sex by offering every team for which there is sufficient interest and ability for a viable team, and sufficient competition in the geographic areas where the institution normally competes.
    I know a school near UND that has numbers that far out of balance and they get by on Test Three.

    The 2019 EADA numbers supplied by Syracuse show a profit just under $16.9 million. However, that revenue could include institutional support, as well as student fees (I have no idea if Syracuse has them). A further look at the EADA numbers shows they reported men's basketball earned $19.6 million and football earned $15.8 million. Looking at Louisville's NCAA financial reports shows that they received $20,063,301 in media rights for 2020 ($3,960,463 for men's basketball, $15,760,338 for football and $342,500 for all other sports) and $$8,659,159 in non-media and non-bowl conference distributions ($1,040,531 for men's basketball, $7,295,000 for football and $323,628 non-specific). I would expect Syracuse received at least the same amount as Louisville, who joined the ACC a year later. So, about $11 million of the men's basketball profit comes from ticket sales, contributions, royalties and sponsorships, among other sources, while it appears that football needed the conference distribution to make money.

    By the way, Syracuse is not in title IX balance, as their breakdown of athletic participants 53.7% male, but the university's overall undergraduate population is 54% female.

    Title IX compliance might also be part of the financial consideration. If a school is up against limits, adding a men's team might require adding another team opportunity for women.
    Or the reverse. Case in point: Syracuse, which already has a women's team. Apparently, Title IX is in balance on the shores of Lake Onondaga, so if Syracuse becomes the much-dreamed-of 12th men's team in Hockey East, it would have to either start another women's sport or pull the rug out from under an existing men's sport (which would not be basketball).

    I hope that was referring to Illinois? Whoever “they” are can be confident sure, but in like 5-10 years or what?

    It’s been killing me waiting. Supposedly they were going to announce the launch last spring. Then they said wait for the dust to settle on COVID. I’d say by this point everyone should have a good idea of how it will impact the financials of the donors, the school, and athletic (football) revenue.

    The AD typically does an end of the year review around May / June. If he doesn’t provide solid info on hockey I’m going to…..well….do nothing but continue to wait in frustration.

    It might be the exact reason that having a women’s hockey team is a better indicator than anything else (it seems, at least based on the past 12 months or so) for starting a men’s program.

    The only shame here (IMO) is that it’s Lindenwood, and not a resurrection of St Louis U, benefitting from the Blues’ generosity.

    I don’t know entirely how to quantify (much less prove) that claim, but I get the feeling that there’s a certain percentage of butts in seats that you get regardless of what local engagement is with a sport on a youth/HS/college/minor league level.
    Hockey is like any religion: There are true believers before you arrive, but you still have to create converts also.
