    Be nice to push Mankato out and add Dakota State & VCSU it would be a much more competitive league. Duluth can join the GLIAC. Enrollment would then be similar
    This might be the dumbest comment on this thread. You don't remove two of the top teams to make a more competitive league. Raise your standards you bottom feeders to make the league better.

        Just let us have this, kick us out. Might be the only way the administration gets us to D1

        • Maybe this was covered, but the commissioner of the Summit League is the former NCHC commissioner. Probably why there are rumors they want to add hockey.

          Josh Fenton - Staff Directory - The Summit League

          Seems odd - going from overseeing championship caliber programs in one of the most popular sports in North America to running a hokey pokey conference full of farm schools with zero championship hopefuls.

          I really hope Denver and UND put a stop to that nonsense if it's true. Lindenwood won't say anything.

            Technically, isn't that what the MIAC did?!

              The SMSU athletics director came from running the WCHA....

                Just a fun hater....let the Summit Commissioner play with his toys. The NCHC shouldn't even exist if it weren't for the stupid Big Ten

                  That and there's been questions about the viability of single sport conferences. As far as D1 men's hockey, the B1G is the only multi-sport conference that has hockey. The other five are hockey only conferences. Just my opinion, but I think the Summit was wise to hire Fenton, if for no other reason than to prepare for such a possibility.

                  I've always said that the only (and best) reason for MSU to move up is to protect the men's hockey program. The Mavs to the NCHC looks dead right now. But maybe there's hope if the Summit decides to play hockey.

                    Yeah. That was a head scratcher too.

                      That is how I would describe the Summit League - a bunch of toys. It's such a joke of a conference. Absolutely abysmal.

                      I was so happy when Zeke Mayo decided to go to Kansas. He's a real D1 athlete that will get to play with actual D1 schools instead of a hodge podge of DIII/DII talent cosplaying as D1 schools.

                      Agreed on the Big10. The old WCHA was just fine.

                        Absolutely great on the Summit League's part. To be fair, I never said it wasn't. To get someone with the experience of overseeing that group of schools is phenomenal. It's just weird he'd go from that to watching UMKC and Oral Roberts play basketball in front of 15 people a night. But it's his career and not mine.

                        Hockey is paramount at MSU so if sacrificing the other sports to protect it is part of the future - then that's fine. I'm not obligated to pay for tickets.

                          The Summit has 4 schools that sponsor hockey with St. Thomas. If the Summit were to say sponsor hockey and keep all of the Non-Summit schools as affiliates that would be okay.

                          I could see the MAC starting their own league as well and inviting the Michigan CCHA schools. The Summit would have 7, and the MAC would have 7. Bemidji and Mankato looking outside in, maybe they'd get invited to the MAC.

                          In this scenario MSU better be praying for a Summit invite

                            Ala St. Cloud? No thank you. I'd much rather drop a sport to keep the others healthy.

                              Ha, this is a wild statement.

                              You'd sacrifice hockey to keep the others "healthy"? Not even SCSU would be that stupid (I hope). And please - define healthy. I want to know what you mean by that.

                              What I meant by "sacrifice" is allowing them to function in a Summit League capacity - basically playing meaningless exhibition games, and not cutting the sports entirely.

                              • I was curious - so I looked, it looks like the only Final Four appearance a Summit League team made was in Men's Soccer in 2016 with Denver.

                                MSU fans are really shooting for the moon with this one lol.
