Have fun with that.

There isn’t much of an appetite for Notre Dame hockey on TV, and they’ll realize that soon enough.

Notre Dame “moved the needle” in the CCHA more because of who they were playing and those audience fanbases.  ND hockey is invisible to most ND fans.

I can’t for the life of me though figure out why NBC is so determined to chain itself to ND athletics.
