Born in the middle of an ice storm and destined to be a hockey fan. My grandma has never forgiven me for chucking my sweet sixteen party in favor of attending the Ohio State-Miami game. I'm excited to be covering the awesomeness that is Buckeye hockey for Eleven Warriors.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: The Buckeyes' run to the Frozen Four in 1998. Any game in which Ohio State beats Miami is a good game, but January 8, 2011 was a particularly memorable one with John Albert bringing OSU all the way back from an 0-2 hole. The blowout of Notre Dame in the 2010 CCHA playoffs was pretty fun too.

My pleasure, folks. I'm glad to finally have some positive early season results/expectations to bring you. I was running out of silver linings.

You're very welcome. Thank you for reading. Lol I'm pretty sure I've used that phrase before. Probably right after I typed some serious journalistic term like "janky" or "bomb diggity." And then used an emoticon ;)

An odd numbered conference isn't ideal so I do think the Big Ten will be looking to add another team.  

Arizona State is a popular rumor but I don't think that's the conference's preference. The way I see it, the Big Ten has been fairly careful to cultivate an elite brand and adding a newly minted D-I doesn't further that cause. I expect it's more likely the B1G hopes the addition of Notre Dame will pave the way to poach one of the better programs from the WCHA or NCHC. Miami is certainly an attractive prospect. 

I think the possibility that a current Big Ten school makes the jump to D-I hockey is least likely. It has been repeatedly emphasized that no school is prepared to make that transition.

Not yet but I'm guessing the Big Ten wants another team. I'm also guessing they'd like to lure one of the better programs away from the WCHA or NCHC.
