OT: Anyone watch Hockey?
I generally only follow the pros, but tiny Union College in Nevada, with 2100 students, and zero athletic scholarships just beat Minnesota and their 51K students, 16 NHL Draft Picks, and 18 scholarships to win the NCAA Championship.

True David vs Goliath type moment.

Union is in New York, not Nevada.

Hockey is regional like baseball so little national interest.
College baseball that is because it starts in the winter.
Almost all hockey programs make money and anyone has a shot at winning it all.

There were over 100 nationally televised hockey games this season and 150+ regional games for just 61 D1 teams. It has way more interest than baseball.

Love hockey can't understand why only 61 teams . The unfair winter start of baseball is ridiculous. No Northern school should play baseball before hockey.

Very cool story. Also, here's an interesting view from a couple of years ago, from a Union alum, that addresses the intermingling of athletics and academics that we often talk about in here:

In the North maybe. In the South, the only College Hockey games I witnessed were the couple games NBCSN aired and the postseason when ESPN picked it up.

Its a regional thing. Baseball has far more TV coverage down here.

I came here to shout "Let's Go Lightning!", but then realized this is about college hockey.

Never mind.

Still, Let's go, Lightning.

Playoffs start this week.
