          I'm with you. I don't like any of the four. I doubt if I'll watch any of the games. And I have no interest in going despite it being local. Oh well.........

            I'm pulling for BU. They dumped the Gophers and have a chance to dump the Pios. Might make it to the championship game since the Gophers aren't there.

            Sioux Falls Regional was a blast. Such a fun time.

                  Any idea why the Summit would want to do this? They only have three teams in the NCHC- Denver, North Dakota and Omaha.

                  You could add UST from the CCHA.

                    There's been talk about the viability of single sport conferences. My guess is that something to do about it.

                    If that's the case, is the MAC (Western Michigan, Miami, and Bowling Green) contemplating the same thing?

                      I found this Reddit post - apparently it's an old(er) rumor.

                      Rumor of a Rumor: Summit League might sponsor hockey : r/collegehockey (reddit.com)

                      I *heard* a *rumor* that SDSU was approached with the opportunity to add hockey, but declined. NDSU could probably sustain a program, but won't. That leaves UMKC, Oral Roberts, and USD - and they'll never add.

                      I would add Lindenwood into the mix as they are an associate member to the Summit League. Then my guess is they would want to structure the conference to be 8-10 teams, so they'd try to snag Augustana and 2-4 more NCHC teams. Curiously, future associate member Delaware is adding NCAA D1 Women's Ice Hockey, whatever that's worth.

                      Just spitballing - but the Summit seems to be desperate to be taken seriously on a national level, and since their member schools are only achieving notoriety in wrestling and football through other conferences, maybe that's why they want to add hockey? With Denver, UND, and UNO - they'd be instant competitors nationally. They were even tweeting about Denver winning the national championship...

                            Hey College Hockey fans, come on out to Palm Desert, California (ten miles east of Palm Springs) on Jan. 3 & 4 of 2025 for the NCAA Cactus Cup at Acrisure Arena. The four teams involved are Holy Cross, Omaha, Michigan Tech and UMass Lowell. It's a great arena that holds 11,000 and it's the home of the Coachella Valley Firebirds of the AHL. Warm weather in the winter, bring your golf clubs or tennis racket. 😎
