    I hope the channel can build some legitimacy so hockey-detractors can stop with jokes about fishing and such.

    no fishing jokes here, just what the hell is the MWC? I guess it's just a 2-bit college conference that no one really cares about (hey, not unlike the NHL).

    vs can "build some legitimacy" by becoming a BASIC cable channel, which will help them try to acquire a similar fan exposure that ESPN currently enjoys.

    Until then, vs will continue to be a joke.

    Maybe Mountain West Conference? ;)

    They are all division 1 schools, may not be a major conference, but it's a start I guess...

    Are these broadcasts exclusive nationwide?
