Seeing Orange off in the Horizon?

Ron at The College Hockey News Blog reports some interesting things happening at Syracuse University. The Orange are in the process of dropping their current men’s and women’s swimming programs, and are going to add an ACHA D-I women’s hockey team in the place of the departed swim teams. What does this mean, exactly? For now, lots of pundit speculation. Later, men’s & women’s NCAA D-I hockey?

Granted, there are certainly lots of rough corners to hammer out over the next few years if Syracuse were to steer its athletic department towards college hockey. However, the New York-area market is hot right now on hockey, and could likely support a high-profile school like Syracuse taking on a new program.

Certainly quite interesting.
