This is news but certainly now news that an nD hockey fan cares about, right?
Well, the oft-repeated idea that UND will join B1G is now part of ND's newsfeed...will there be an 8th team and whom is going to come up a lot.
I take UND cutting women's hockey as a sign that there are not any serious talks between B1G and UND because B1G would want UND to bring the women's program as well. It checks all of the B1G boxes and if a lucrative B1G revenue share was in their future they wouldn't need to cut so many programs as well.
University of Illinois seems the most likely to me but they're going to need a PSU style backer...State of Illinois isn't going to pony up the dough
