Note Dame To B1G. More Realignment Coming?

You’ve undoubtedly heard by now: Notre Dame is leaving Hockey East for the Big Ten (in hockey only, in 2017-18). As most things do in the college hockey community, this announcement made the Internet go crazy for about 12 hours last night.

Hey gang. Sorry for no blog updates, but it’s been busy around here with a the Pioneer’s sports department in transition (Kris Lodes left in October and Austin Monteith started at the end of November).

PREGAME WARMUP: Halloween Edition

It took me far too long to find some appropriate Halloween music for this week’s blog post, so instead you should just listen to the “Zombie” by the Cranberries on repeat, just because. The Beaver men’s team is in Marquette, Mich., tonight to take on Northern Michigan. BSU is looking for its first WCHA win of…
