UW Announcement Coming

The Blog That Yost Built came across an interesting tidbit in the Detroit News, regarding Wisconsin holding an outdoor hockey game.

According to the News, Wisconsin will be making a formal announcement regarding an outdoor hockey game next February at Camp Randall stadium in the next two weeks. The Badgers have been trying for some time to schedule an outdoor game at Camp Randall. A deal to play a WCHA game outdoors fell through, so it's likely the game will be played against a non-conference opponent, with Michigan being one of the rumored schools.

I'd expect an announcement to come in the wake of tomorrow's outdoor hockey game between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks at Wrigley Field.

The WCHA not allowing this game to happen within the conference just proves how damn stupid McLeod is. Unreal....

Please don't get Northern to play in the game it would be too embarrassing to loose to them in a highly hyped game versus the quiet losses this weekend.
