    "It was part of the interview process that the new AD would have to lead a comprehensive study as to whether we should add hockey, or to move up to Division I," Gene Taylor said. "We brought in a consultant and spent a year studying it."
    . And, two, those folks up north in Grand Forks [North Dakota] had so much hockey tradition that it was hard to envision being able to compete for years."
    Sadly they took the easy way out and decided Divsion 1 was more important. Talk about chicken *****.
    Slap Shot - 444 might want to consider a restraining order.
    dggoddard - Minnesota is THE ELITE Program in all of college hockey.

    There are a lot of fans of the Sioux in Fargo. They would have never competed with The Fighting Sioux. NDSU would never be able to take the perennial arse whipping the Sioux would have given them every year for life.
