    University of Nebraska

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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."

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

    ****, I hate BTHC talk.

    Re: University of Nebraska

    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.

    all that's needed is a cable channel that needs some Friday night games in the winter.

    Larry, just so they don't take the University of Minnesota with them. I don't want some two bit announcer talking puck to me especially when they don't have a clue about the Gopher hockey program.
    Slap Shot - 444 might want to consider a restraining order.
    dggoddard - Minnesota is THE ELITE Program in all of college hockey.
    wasmania - you have to be the very best to get ice time with the great gophers!
