I'd rather add baseball/softball than bring back football.

Hockey would be the best fit, IMO

Nah.    Two winter sports with very few spring and fall sports?

I'd love for MU to have hockey. But outside of Providence is there another Big East school with hockey? And how many comparable institutions have hockey? BC, ND but they can subsidize it with football money.

It's more likely that BC hockey subsidizes football than vice versa.

I am kidding but hockey is extremely popular there.

And Marquette doesn't need any additional sports at this time.

Not even that, but they’ve had it forever.  ND’s program has been around since the early 70s, far longer.  They were established, funded programs far before the finances of college sports became hyper focused.  Same with Providence and they play in hockey’s premier conference.

Both of the major college programs to start recently, Penn St and ASU, were totally funded by boosters, despite being at huge well funded athletic departments.  Penn St hockey was fully funded in the 9 figures by Terry Pegula who owns the Bills and Sabres, and ASU hockey raised $35MM from boosters and ASU club hockey alums. 

It was awesome how Marquette put Lax together, but forming a hockey team would be a far more difficult and costly endeavor that would directly compete with their most important and well funded sport

I'm not extremely convinced that they'd have negative impacts on each other unless the hockey team had some major success. I get the fiscal argument for entertainment dollars but if the majority of money comes from media rights anyways and not tickets then we'd just need to get a solid network deal (which idk if that's a thing for hockey)

ND dropped their hockey program for about 15 years from the mid 80s to about 2000. (Off the top of my head.)

Yeah they played in the Badger Hockey Showdown at the BC and got waxed.  They were either a club team or just re-starting their D1 team.

Not that long.  Only 1 year as club in like 1983 and then a few years in the ACHA which was sort of a hybrid D1/D2 conference back then. By the late 80s they were D1 independent again and in 1990 or so they joined the CCHA which was where the Michigan, MSU, and OSU resided before the B10 hockey conference

Gotcha.  I remember watching them usually get clocked by Wisconsin in the old WCHA days in the late 70s.  They weren't very good back then.

I think that they were only playing Wisconsin then to shore up their academic reputation by playing the "Harvard of the Midwest"
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

And Marquette doesn't need any additional sports at this time.

Number of sports teams per each Big East school's web site. Track and field includes both an indoor (winter) team and an outdoor (spring) team. This does not count split teams by sport. Georgetown, for instance, counts women's and coed sailing as two distinct "teams" but merely lists it under one title, same with HW and LW rowing. GU counts 30 "teams" but only lists 26.

Georgetown 26
Villanova 24
Connecticut 24
Butler 20
Providence 18
Xavier 18
St. John's 17
DePaul 15
Creighton 14
Marquette 14
Seton Hall 14

Still doesn't mean Marquette needs more sports.

I love college football. I have called it the quintessential American sport. Saturday night SEC game?  Awesome.

That being said, Marquette shouldn’t sponsor it. It would be a complete resource drain with little upside.

Maybe if they did FCS football and played in the Spring....that'd fill a niche
