    With rumors that U of Nebraska will soon be a member of the Big Ten, I was wondering what the chances might be they would add D-I hockey? I know they have a club team. Will Nebraska have a second D-I program?

    well, having an immediate rivalry with a team 30 miles away could help the cause. who knows?

    bring on missouri then too.

      I'd say not likely - they are building a new basketball arena, without ice making capabilities:

      The arena won't be built to accommodate an ice surface, so seats can be closer to the basketball playing floor, Osborne said.
      Current NCAA D-I rinks I've been to:

      AHA:
      B1G: UMinn, UWisc
      ECAC:
      HEA: UMass, Notre Dame
      NCHC: UMD, UND, SCSU, WMU
      WCHA: UAH, BSU, FSU, LSSU, MSU, MTU, NMU

        Nope. Tom Osborne doesn't want it. Doc Sadler (the hoops coach) really doesn't want it.

          I'd say the chances are approaching zero that UNL would even consider hockey. And the proximity to UNO's program, IMHO, makes is less not more likely that there will be D-I hockey in Lincoln. UNOfan can probably explain it better than me.

            Probably not as good a chance as
            Penn State
            Syracuse
            Navy

            (any other names bandied about last 2-3 years?)

            which ain't saying much

                How do you get a Nebraska cheerleader into an elevator?
                You grease up the sides of the doors and throw in a Twinkie.

                What's the difference between a Nebraska cheerleader and a catfish?
                One of them has whiskers and smells bad, and the other one lives in a lake.

                  Michigan fan and Nebraska fan are both in the bathroom at halftime. After zipping up, the Nebraska fan heads for the door. The Michigan fan snickers and says in the typically snooty voice, "At Michigan, we wash our hands after using the bathroom."

                  The Nebraska fan says over his shoulder as he's leaving, "In Nebraska, we don't **** on our hands."

                    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

                      Looks like Michigan & Nebraska could be a good rivalry right out of the blocks .

                      ****, I hate BTHC talk.

                        Somehow I just dont see Nebraska as ever being much of a hockey school. Especially considering how much of a football school they are and how hockey would have to compete with the football program for money, fans and attention for much of the season.
