Interesting article by Tom Shatel in the OWH today, with a lot of information about the Mavericks. First, the link: http://www.omaha.com/article/20120806/SPORTS/708069873/1140#shatel-uno-s-alberts-quiet-about-hockey-arena 3 things that stood out to me: 1. Sounds like an on-campus arena for the hockey team isn't a question of if, but very potentially a question of when. Sounds like it could very well be part of a larger facilities announcement coming for the Mavericks soon. Also a great sign for them that the money sounds like it's already there to proceed, or at least the pledges for the money needed, anyway. 2. Terry Leahy, who has been the voice of the Mavericks hockey team on the radio for quite some time, will be back as the radio announcer again, regardless of where the Mavericks are broadcast this year. Always great to have an identity for your team, and Leahy has certainly been that for the Mavericks. 3. Maybe the most important piece, buried right at the end of the Mavericks information, is the fact that Cristensen announced that the athletic department, for the first time in a long time, ended the year IN THE BLACK. That likely came a lot quicker than a lot of people were expecting. And yes, I realize it's possible to use different methods to make that happen, but the fact that he was willing to announce that publicly, to me, means that they're pretty confident in whatever methods they used that the athletic department is actually paying its way right now. Considering the controversy caused by the moves a year and a half ago, that has to be at least partial vindication for Christensen and Alberts, and the moves they made. Anyhow, a little food for thought for those that follow the Mavericks.
Nebraska-Omaha released their schedule yesterday, I believe. I think I mentioned a blurb BC from the LJS had mentioned regarding UNO being invited to the Nebraska Classic, I believe it's called. The two are set to meet 11/18, no time set yet, according to the Mavericks website, omavs.com. Link for the schedule here: http://omavs.com/schedule.aspx?path=mbball
