Seems like nowadays the gold standard for athletic departments is to have 3 constant revenue generating sports(football, basketball, w.basketball/hockey). Only a handful of schools have this. Seems like U.Conn could trump all those by having 4 with a larger profile hockey program. So I ask why hasn't U.Conn made a bigger commitment to hockey? The fact that they are a large, name recognized school it would seem like they would be a right fit for a power conference like Hockey East. Have they ever applied?(I do realize their rink is fairly small). They also have a fairly decent recruiting base within the state and nearby.(I believe there's 15-20 Conn. natives playing D-1 hockey). Or do the higher up not want hockey to steal basketball's thunder? I've been following college hockey fairly well for the last 20 years, but this program has been one that always puzzled me.
