    Is their program moving from ACHA to NCAA 1 or 111?

    Since it's a Division I institution, they would have to play Division I hockey. They cannot play Division III.

    There's a long way to go before Illinois has real college hockey.

    We're probably at least three or four years away, minimum, and likely more. Sounds like they're on the verge of announcing a fundraising effort to get there with a new arena, so we are talking soonish hopefully.
