Have any of you noticed the heavy marketing of the BIG Hockey Conference during CFB games? The Big Ten will be showing lots of these games on the Big Ten Network? I really think this is a huge long term challenge for BC and Hockey East. The BIG is the first major conference to include hockey among its offerings and the BIG Ten Network will give these teams maximum exposure and dollars for recruting. How will BC and Hockey East compete? They certainly don't have the dollars to compete with the BIG Ten Network. This is where this wacko sports quadrification set-up of the Northeast is going to kill us. Hockey schools like UML and Merrimack. Bball schools like HC and Gtown and PC. We are stuck in the ACC so I don't think the ACC is going to spread its wings into hockey. So, here we have the one sport we are good at and it will be under assualt. Not right away.. but 5-10 years from now. Rememmber those words of Robert Duvall in the Gfather.
