Good article on a topical subject. Hate to give a Buckeye any credit but OSU captain Curtis Gedig has some comments about recruiting that I think are pretty insightful.
BTN President Mark Silverman:
“We’re in an investing phase, not in a moneymaking phase, with Big Ten hockey,” Silverman said. “The hope is, over time, that we can grow the sport so it can pay for itself and hopefully be an overall benefit to the network. “We think it will bring in new viewers. We think it will help with our ratings. But we’re making a significant investment, and it’s not a short-term investment.”
The bottom of the article has an associate commissioner leaving the door open to associate members a la Johns Hopkins. What say you, MGoBoard?
