I know it's being reported that the fourth team at the 2012 GLI is going to be Western Michigan. But for the last two years the fourth team signed has been St. Cloud. I'm not sure if this is the idiots at the Detroit News being idiots or if this has actually changed. But I'm waiting for offical confirmation from a school

That (Western Michigan) is what was said by Chris Illich, CEO of Illich Holdings during the news conference. There is another news conference at 1:15 in Ann Arbor.

They are saying it is part of the "Hockeytown Winter Festival". Perhaps they made some sort of arrangement with St. Cloud to switch years. It does seem fitting to have Western as part of this whole shebang.

Threads in which the first word is preceded by a lower-case "t" are terribly obnoxious and ought not be considered when starting new threads.
