For over 60 years the four major hockey schools in Boston - BC, BU, Harvard, and Northeastern - have staged the Beanpot tournament. But of course, there are now technically 8 Division I hockey schools in the area - the other four being Bentley, Merrimack, Holy Cross, and UMass-Lowell. The former two I am projecting to move up to full D1 athletics in the Northeast Conference. So, I present the idea of expanding the Beanpot to include those other four schools. This would certainly bring in more revenue, and possibly a national TV contract.
