Why doesn't UAlbany make Hockey a varsity sport like football and basketball. I know it means building an ice hockey arena, but maybe the Pepsi Arena could pick up the team. Certainly they'd draw more people then the River Rats. I just look at teams like UNH, Vermont, BU, Maine all being AEC teams and all having pretty successful nationally ranked hockey teams. I also look at UAlbany's current hockey club and see how successful they are. I know that with the Master Plan and the emphasis on the football program, that cash is probably tight, but it would still be nice to have a team so I don't have to go to RPI to watch a college hockey game. Although with RPI and Union so close, some nice rivalries could develop.

At this point Albany has more female scholarships athletes than male. That difference has been in place so scholarships could be added to football. Now that football is adding scholys then the hockey team idea is pretty much DOA. It does leave the possibility of a D-III team but then like UAAlum said they would have to start a women's team. No scholarships but mucho dinero for ice time, equipment and insurance.
