    How many schools hang league opponent name banners?

    Denver used to have opponent name banners from all the other WCHA schools hanging in the arena, but no longer does.

    Does your school still have them? Never had them? Got rid of them?

    Just curious...

    SCSU has banners from the men and women WCHA.
    "I told him about this offer and he (Thomas Vanek) told me about the fans at the National Hockey Center," Nodl said. "I was like 'Wow.' He loved playing there because it was so crazy. The students really get into it. It wasn't like Minnesota where you have 10,000 old people not making any noise."

    Michigan has the current CCHA member team logos painted on the press box facade, west side of the building. I know they used to have banners for each member school, but I think they were removed when the new luxury boxes were put in.

    Bemidji State has banners from the WCHA women's and CHA men's in the John Glas. I haven't heard about plans for the BREC yet.

    NMU has logos on the wall at the BEC, and had either the same logos (painted on wooden boards) or very similar ones at Lakeview.

    I think all the Hockey East schools do that. It's probably a league requirement.

    True, DU has names and logos of all WCHA schools near its locker room, but those aren't on public view...

    Minnesota has all the school names painted above the concourses. Each school is on an individual thing that runs over the concourse (I can't think of what they are called - they are made out of concrete but I don't think they are support structures).

    I don't recall seeing them at BC unless you can't see them from my seat.

    FYI, BC is having all of their banners redone as part of a summer improvement to Conte Forum. The new widescreen hidef jumbotrons are pretty sick too.

    I think all the ECAC teams do, Quinnipiac definitely has the banners up in front of the press box.

    Not technically in banner form, but WMU has all the CCHA schools displayed in Lawson.

    Michigan Tech has signs printed with the name of each league opponent posted on the wall underneath the JMSIA pressbox.

    RIT has all the Atlantic Hockey teams' banners with the school names and colors prominently displayed. I play the 'name their mascot' game with my kids - it kills time between periods.

    They have the women's league banners displayed as well.

    UND misspelled Anchorage on the original Seawolf banner at REA and Seapup fans whined about it like anyone actually cares about them.
