NCAA Tourney in FW

Post  Scooby01_98 on Thu Mar 27, 2008 11:43 pm

Saw this story in the JG and also the NS had a companion piece. The coliseum is trying to get the NCAA hockey tourney, one of the early rounds here in FW. If any of you have seen college hockey it is IMO one of the best things to watch. No fighting allowed which means the checking is much more aggressive.

So if they got a couple of games here would you attend?

Sure, I would attend mostly for the experience more than anything. I'm not a huge hockey fan but it is about a thousand times better to watch in person rather than on TV. I can appreciate just about any sporting event live, except soccer. I still haven't been able to enjoy that one.

Nope. I've tried and tried and tried again...I just don't get hockey and without getting it, I can't get into it. I don't even try anymore.

Baseball / Football / MMA / some golf...those are the only sports I really give a damn about anymore.

This would be awesome.. I went to the ND/Michigan game a couple years ago, it was great. And we are in the heart of college hockey country believe it or not. Miami (Ohio) has really been producing some great teams as of late, Ferris State is just down the road, Notre Dame is actually starting to develop a strong program OSU and MSU are usually good, and then there is the perennial powerhouse of my Wolverines up in Ann Arbor (#1 in the nation).

We have a good hockey fan base, and we're close to a ton of hockey schools, I'd love to see this happen.

Hockey is only good when there are fights and squids and octopus gets thrown on to the ice. LOL

I would probably go if it was someone I cared about, but I don't think a Notre Dame/Ferris State hockey game would do anything for me. With basketball, I have had exposure to a lot of teams and became familiar with their style of play and the players on those teams. If college hockey was more accessible where I could get familiar with the teams, I might be more into it.

College Hockey is on almost every night if you use Dish Network. Smile

I agree though, it's a sport that would only deliver current fans, probably wouldn't develop a large following of non-fans. I'd probably only go to watch Michigan.. but I'd have my blue and gold jersey on to do it. Smile

How did I know that Bman would chime in. That's right, you have NO claims to the ice. Very Happy

Grr I tried to post this but I wouldn't let me.

I went to Miami (Ohio) and their hockey team is AWESOME! For a good part of the season Miami was #1 (Up until about the end of January). But they lost to Michigan, Razz ahh well at least that team up north can beat an ohio team at something;) (Ok I don't know where that came from Trash talking is somethign new for me;) ) Overall Miami had more wins than Michigan. But Michigan had more ties and less losses.

I thought the sites were already chosen for this years "Frozen Four" But I would totlly drive to the Fort to see my beloved RedHawks play:)

Here is a link to the brackets if you are interested in looking. http://tinyurl.com/3ya5mm

I believe the reason Michigan is still ranked ahead of Miami is because they were 2-0-1 against them on the year. Most recently beating them for the CCHA championships in detroit, and before that both games were in Oxford. That first game of theirs was great.. Michigan dropped 5 goals on them in them in about 5 minutes.

Maybe if it's like $5-10 and free parking.

I can see The Who in Indianapolis at Conseco and not pay for parking, but can I see a damn $5 hockey game without paying to park?

Free parking in Indy? Good score! When I go down to Indy for Colts games, I park at the Conseco parking garage. $5 to park there and getting out after the game is a breeze. It's about a 4 block walk to the dome, but there happens to be a few watering holes on the way there.

You can see a game in FW without paying for parking.. you just can't park in the Coliseum parking lot without paying. Park at HH Gregg, Scotts, IPFW, Concordia, the old Afdent/Broadripple parking area, or back by Turners (only not IN Turners).. all free, you just have to walk.
