    They would have received that even if hockey was still in the WCHA

    That’s could be up to $70M a college.

    Don’t start that ‘smoke and mirror’ show.

    Don’t spoil his fun. It has been a tough week for him after the Gophers have won 4 games in a row. This was any easy layup for him.

    The Athletic is running a special again. $1 month. Great hockey content as well as other sports.

        Better signup now for Peacock, before the price goes through the roof.

        Who gets that though? If you divide the entirety of that $1B by the 14 schools, that’s $71.4M per school. It’s not chump change for sure, but it’s also not going to run your department. Ticket sales still matter (and probably more so, the concessions those sales generate).

          Especially since I would expect the cost to run the athletic department to magically increase by say, approximately $71.4M in the next couple years.

            The U of M will double that as a cost to operate

              Do you expect them to donate it to the UMN Foundation? They have plenty of debts to pay off and investments to make in their programs.

              A good start would probably be to stop needing direct and indirect institutional support to balance their budget.

              If you waited for Anson’s apology, as expected, it didn’t happen. Instead another dig at the Wild’s depth.

                So Carter is picking a fight with the Wild, their beatwriter and their fans for basically no reason? What’s the point here? Does he think this is a ratings ploy? It’s not even a valid storyline. Maybe he wants to make sure he never ever has to come here to cover a game?

                I guess I just don’t care at all what Carter thinks…

                If the Wild are offended? Win a few playoff series.

                and if you lose in the first round again. Carter is right… But again. Who cares?

                Yeah, the “Depth” thing was what started the whole thing in the first place. You could hear his co-hosts reaction to him doubling down.

                I don’t care and I’m sure Russo will just ignore him at this point.

                Carter is just following the ESPN standard operating procedures. If you can’t say something intelligent, say something controversial.

                  That one is just tounge and cheek at the fans there. Let it go everyone. At least he didn’t call all the Wild fans racist.

                          Nanne was on KFAN this evening with Burrito, was asked why the Gophers keep having problems getting people to show up to watch the games, he said the issue is ticket prices, they need to lower all ticket prices

                          Good for Nanne. He’s never in town and has season tickets. I wonder if he finds someone to always use his tickets or is he one of those who uses it as a donation to the university.

                          I wonder if Lou knows that they average 2500-3000 no shows a game? That has nothing to do with ticket prices.

                          2000 unsold seats for a HUGE series against the biggest rival is lost money because of the ticket prices. The no show money is at least in their hands already.

                            I wouldn’t say he’s never in town, I’ve seen him at a game

                            Ticket prices don’t account for the no-shows and Nanne is missing some of the components, but I am 100% sure ticket prices account for some of the issues.

                            Hopefully they keep adding student sections until the no-shows start attending. :wink:

                            Prior Lake HS back in the news for the same crap from a few months ago. PL and New Prague are not that far apart, sensing a theme from that area. No need to get into it more but sick of this.

                                I’m from PL, and I don’t think it’s so much “that area” as it is just any exurb that’s 30+ minutes away from a major city. (NP is definitely an exurb. Whether or not PL still is could be up for debate).

                                Casual (and sometimes overt) racism runs somewhat rampant in towns like this all over the state/country. Frustratingly, idiots now seem more emboldened over the last several years to not hide their racism anymore. For reasons that we likely all know, and don’t need to get into.

                                I am happy that it is surfacing, frankly, and that’s all I have to say about that.

                                And yes, the more one gets from the core metro area (no matter where you are) you’ll run into this.

                                I’m not sure I understand the PL case. Why are the girls being punished for some gutless dumb ass who slipped a racist note into the gym bag of one of the players? Why is the coach resigning?

                                There has to be more to this than what I’m not seeing here.

                                  Because they think it was one of her teammates, not some random kid.

                                  From the coaches tweet linked below, it sounds like he knew there was a problem, tried to fix it, and realized he couldn’t so he doesn’t want to be there anymore.

                                    I thought that was NP, but the explanation above by gopher…05 seems to explain it.

                                            Yes. He is retiring from teaching and coaching.

                                            One can only hope that ESPN has the Manning cast every week as an alternative.

                                            PBP guy: What do you think about the third period, Ben?

                                            Clymer: Well, the more disciplined team, and that may not just metastasize itself in staying out of the penalty box, but being more responsible with the puck as well….”

                                            “Metastasize”? Good grief Ben…just when I thought you were getting better at your job you assault my ears with slipshod English and malapropisms.

                                            Even worse, I have to believe that it would take Clymer at least 12 seconds to say the word “metastasize”.

                                              Clymer and Parrish must be working on the cheap. Parrish adds nothing to these broadcasts. Although Clymer has some decent hockey knowledge, he tries to communicate it by acting like some Harvard elite English professor. Really wish 45/MSHSL could find someone else to do the color commentary.

                                                  Radio shows are basically commercials with a few minutes of content in between. I never tune in because of that.

                                                  ESPN is allowing him to do both.
