BGSU to Drop Hockey?

There are rumors swirling that BGSU could announce the death of their hockey program as soon as two weeks from now.

I'd sure hate to see that. It's never good to see any school drop hockey, let alone a former national champion who has put a decent number of guys into the NHL. They've fallen on hard times, but I'd hate to see the Falcons go.

Of course, that would be an easy way of solving the "Where does Alabama-Huntsville play?" dilemma.

Here's hoping that we get to see those ugly jerseys and thunderstick-wielding fans for many years to come!

Save BGSU Hockey on Facebook. Whether it'll help or not, I don't know. But it's worth showing support to one of the "little guys" in our conference (and I don't mean that in a derogatory way).

That kind of sucks. They used to be an incredibly strong team. Paul Ysebaert, Rob Blake, and 2 hobey Baker winners. That's sad.

And I just learned something new today. Even though I've got an autographed picture of Ysebaert on my wall at home, I never knew that he played college hockey, let alone in the CCHA. He was a favorite of mine when he was with the Wings. Rocket Man!

Have a buddy that played soccer at BGSU in the early 90s, he had some pals on the hockey team. The teams' locker rooms were really close together and you could hear the other team through the wall. He said when Michigan came down there, it was so intense. the teams would be screaming at each other through the walls, dropping f bombs, etc. -
