Say It Ain’t So Joe

The Bowling Green hockey team could be on the chopping block:

I understand the shortfall in the Athletic Department budget, but hockey could be a revenue sport for BGSU if they put the effort into fielding a winner again, like by hiring a coach that knows his ass from a hole in the ground and upgrading the facility.  Also, I figure that shortfall will disappear on its own when the economy improves and the Stroh Center opens.  Hockey is a sport that BG has a national title in and it just doesn’t make sense to cut it.  I would have to look at a list at everything BG currently competes intercollegiately, but I’m sure there are better candidates than hockey if something simply had to be dropped.  I hope the hockey team is saved.
