Hockey is their marquee sport, like NU football and CU basketball. This is the one sport UNO can not shop on the end caps for good deals. Need to spend to get the right person.
Yes, but this will be difficult to do as the AD is run by a group of people who don't get it, and there is a budget squeeze they have no remedy for. UNO will end up getting some B-team coach. I think this will be the trigger that lets Husker D1 hockey come to life. The regents will say that UNO had it's chance and that they should just settle for a club team for now if they can't recruit a high level coach. Then they will set things up to make sure no one good will take the job.
