Welcome to Division I.

$75 Million for a new rink is a good start.

I am assuming that the main rink will be NHL sized and the practice rink will be olympic sized?

I am glad that construction on this can start soon. Especially in this tough economy it will help to provide a lot of jobs for construction workers, plumbers, electricians, steel works, and others when they really need the work.

There is an alternative to taxpayer subsidized sports arenas. Congratulations to Penn State and to Terry and Kim Pegula.

Congratulations to Penn State!! Your school is right smack in the middle of some great hockey talent, hopefully I'll get to watch the Icers at Baker Rink in Princeton and someday in Iowa City, Ia!

Reading the press release, I noticed something.

"In a somewhat brilliant move, Penn State hockey will make the switch to the varsity level in 2012-13"

If the world ends on December 22, 2012, they won't get a full season in. I guess we can all talk about the what ifs in the afterlife.

Maybe the Mayans will declare Penn State national champions going into the afterlife......Must I say this......."NOT"!!!!

I heard Joe Paterno but that's an obvious choice

Mike Chambers (http://blogs.denverpost.com/sports/2010/09/16/penn-state-and-gwozdecky/12903/) of the Denver Post already has and the DU fans are not thrilled! :rolleyes:


DU coach George Gwozdecky has four years remaining on the 12-year contract he signed in 2002. Coincidentally, 2014 could be the year Penn State will be ready to officially join Division I and become founding members of the proposed Big Ten hockey conference, along with Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Please excuse my reach while I connect the dots.

And I just ordered a hat from McLanahan's website too.... Congrats to Penn State! I'm so excited, I've been a huge Penn State fan my entire life!

Good luck in every game except for when you play UNH which I hope is yearly. :)

In a shameless plug, you should have ordered from the Icers Booster Club (http://www.icersboosterclub.org/merchandise.htm) website! :D

However, McLanahan's is a bigger supporter of the Icers. :)

By the way, these will not be the new unis for the Nittany Lions. :rolleyes:

Really! Since when is the state of Pennsylvania known for great hockey? Did we miss something? Last time I checked the big time hockey states were Minnesota, Massachusetts and Michigan… I don't ever remember Pennsylvania being in the mix.

He's technically correct. Penn State is in the middle of the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins, and the 2010 Stanley Cup Finalist Philadelphia Flyers. And both those teams have great talent, right?
