New College Hockey Program?

New College Hockey Program?

Buccigross tweeted last night he’s hearing that Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD is planning on starting a D-1 hockey program in 2023. They don’t even have club hockey right now, but the school is moving from DII to DI in all sports and adding hockey apparently is part of their master plan.

Augustana is practically my backyard. I'm all for it, though I don't know how you start up a division one team out of nothing.

Who do I lobby to get Cornell to come play here?

Coach Schafer - but then also Augustana's head coach, who will be expected to commit to playing at Lynah in exchange.

Is Augustana one of those arts colleges in the frozen Midwest like St. Olaf, Macalester, Carleton, and Hamline?

Edit: No, that's Augsburg.

Well LIU announced they were starting a D1 program on 4/30/20 and they did ok with a season that started less than 6 months later.

It's the fancy rich private school for upper crust South Dakotans.

I know how silly that sounds.

Coincidentally, Josh Whitman, the athletic director of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, talked about their potential ice hockey program today.
[www.chicagotribune.com]
AD

2. Let’s do that hockey?

Illinois made a splash when it announced in 2017 it was pursuing the development of a varsity ice hockey team.

While Whitman considered the university “in the red zone” toward launching a team in the summer of 2019, the Illini hit some obstacles with fundraising and then paused the project because of the pandemic.

He said he is restarting conversations with donors and developers about beginning a hockey program. Whitman will need to see if previously committed donors are still on board.

“We had walked it so far down the road, we can’t just walk away from it without at least reopening the conversation to see if it continues to make sense,” he said.

Illinois had considered a project that included multiple sports in a downtown Champaign complex. Factors such as facilities and which sports can be included would determine the cost of a program.

Whitman said he doesn’t feel obligated to go beyond conversations, but he can foresee a hockey program becoming the third-highest revenue-producing sport.

“We know where we think the money was,” he said. “We just need to go back and see if it’s still there.”

Sounds like a line out of a John Sandford Lucas Dake Davenport police novel, except that's set in Minnesota.

After watching the NFL grow from six teams to thirty teams I'm convinced that expanding D-1 college hockey will benefit the game - finally put it on a par with baseball, basketball and football.

Selfishly, I prefer that college hockey stays a rather small pond for a long, long time.

We might do fine during an explosive period of expansion as our talent remains the same but the "not heading to Ivies" talent gets spread more thinly, but pretty soon there would be too much money and attention flying around for non-scholarship schools to compete, like in other sports, viz., the aforementioned baseball, basketball, and football.

Yes, Lucas Davenport. How many of John Sanford / Lucas Davenport's top 100 rock tunes of all time do you agree with? You really have to be on the outer/older edge of Bâby Boomerdom to align fully. Sandford was born in 1943.

About a third — I was born a year before Sandford. Just got Ocean Prey from the library with both Davenport and Virgil Flowers.

Some authors writing a book series, or series of series, lose it over time. I'm not sure how long Sandford can keep up the pace. I'm learning a lot about driving Minnesota back roads in a Porsche, tho. Daniel Silva's Gabiel Allon series is still well-written, but it starts to seem like the framing of the plot pays homage to previous books. Phillip Kerr's Bernie Gunther series (German detective with a conscience, in the 1930s-50s-50s) has been well written but Kerr died in 2018, so the series ends at 14. Yep, thread drift again. But really, Cornell sports is quiet for another month or two.

To help pass the time, the next Gabriel Allon book, The Cellist, will be available July 13.

No trees in the Dakotas so I guess we'll do iron guillotines for them.

Wasn't Fitzgerald from around there? There are rich cockroaches everywhere.

This is interesting. Tennessee State, with support from the Nashville Predators, is seriously pursuing plans to become the first HBUC to have a Division I college hockey program. The Athletic also had coverage, but there's a paywall.

Talk about an unlikely candidate! It would be great if they can pull it off. I wish them luck.

Fantastic for lots of reasons.

If you build a rink coaching and talent will follow.

The Predators and the regional government have built a couple of ice centers in the Nashville area and are working on a third. There’s also been a Thanksgiving tournament with some big DI women’s programs for a few years in Nashville. So there’s a lot going on and it would be great if Tennessee State adds hockey.

Pick a rink 10+ years old and see if it spawned any Pewee-to-NHL talent. Lynah/Cass Park did.
