What does the NCAA provide the 55-60 D-I colleges and universities playing hockey? A 16-team post-season tournament? It's time to weigh the pros and cons of staying under the thumb of the NCAA. My analysis tells me the NCAA provides no value to college hockey.

Your team is changing their name, move on.

Your team is changing their name, move on. I'd ignore you but you are a gofer fan so I have to give you the obligatory reminder that your team sucks and has for quite a number of years.

Go ahead and leave. Take your dirty UNDies with you.

If a decision to leave the NCAA is ever made, it won't be made by the hockey teams. Hockey goes as football goes. If football says go, hockey goes. If football says stay, hockey stays.

A school can remain a member of the NCAA in some sports but not in others. If you have an example of your theory being played out in reality, please provide it.

I'm curious. What benefit would it be to College Hockey to leave the NCAA? Who would run the new league? How would this new league be any different than the NCAA run college hockey? What would this mean for the Big 10? Can that conference be NCAA in all sports but one?

No more title IX
Fairer representation for all the participating schools.
No more barriers to expansion.

wrong, . if you think it is that easy to avoid a ******* idea like title IX, you are sadly mistaken. title IX has nothing to do with the ncaa, it is the federal government.

they are looking for a reason to join the CIS, their natural home, after all. then they can recruit all the 24 year old ex-CHL players they want.

I'm more interested in examples of your theory. Name us a sport that has broken off from the NCAA and been successful as a collegiate sport, please.

Well this thread has the potential to be epic, an epic fail.

Title IX is a federal law, not an NCAA bylaw. It applies to schools because they accept federal funds.
The mid-majors already make up a majority of the D1 membership - they could vote against the majors at any point if they really wanted to.
Other than cost, travel, and hockey being a fairly niche sport nationwide, right?

The main sports that schools still consider varsity but aren't NCAA sponsored are equestrian, squash, and men's crew (women's is NCAA).
Among other sports, rugby can be fairly big at many schools even though it is usually treated as a club sport rather than a varsity one (meaning it's almost entirely funded by alumni and current participents, and not the school itself).

Were any of those ever under NCAA sanction and then split off as he is suggesting? I guess I don't see a lot of those national championships being carried by even minor networks (though I could be worng as I don't look for those sports on TV).

I believe sailing would also fit this description.
