Oh, well, I had visions of great-looking hockey uniforms in orange and blue - a la style of Blackhawks...

I got myself a game day jersey when the club team was doing a fundraiser back in Covid. I really thought the light was green on making this happen. Whitman showing leadership on this one. I give him props for making the tough call.

Edit: Barstool Carl bought the same one I have

Really? Josh has very clearly been trying to make this happen, so either the support you're mentioning isn't real, or it didn't make itself known to Josh...which is functionally the same as 'not real'. Money talks, bs walks.

Clearly not enough alums writing big enough checks. It's a very expensive sport to fund, so need a really huge donor or two or three who REALLY want varsity hockey to really make it happen. I believe it will happen someday in the future, though.
