Subject: If Canisius becomes a hockey school...

Based on the previous posts, and the 95 other schools who have reduced their athletic programs, what if CC decides to downgrade athletics to D3 to save money?

My hope would be that the school maintains a high level hockey program and adds a women's hockey program.

This is what else should be done:

Move conference to ECAC (There are 4 other D3 schools in that conference)

Improve general marketing around program

Work with Sabres and Beauts for ticket deals

Improve uniforms - make them best in class

Create a fan section at the HARBOR center

Help facilitate transportation and tailgates before the 20+ home games

AKA - create a hockey fandom culture for the program

Get sports management students involved in helping support the program from an admin level so the staff can handle recruiting and development

All school sports coverage should focus on hockey

The goal should be to OWN college hockey in WNY and the state of New York

If the Griffs ever drop down to D3,I have seen my last Men and Women's basketball game ever.

Agreed. I have zero interest in college hockey. If they wanted to go D3, might as well take hockey with them.

We already have a division 3 hockey team in Buffalo: The Buffalo Sabres. We do not need another one. Sorry, I could not resist.

I have no interest in actively supporting D2 or D3 anything at Canisius. I have just as much interest in throwing any support behind the idea of becoming a "hockey first" school too. Non options for me.

I am happy we have a D1 Hockey program. I go to a couple games a year and I do follow them. However, if we ever went D2-3 In basketball, the whole sports program would be dead to me. Men's basketball is what drives my love for the school and their sports program.
