It's a shame that the Fargo-Moorhead newspaper broke this story that Minnesota State Moorhead had donors lined up to fund a Division I hockey progarm, as opposed to a far classier institution like the New York Post because then the headline on this story could have read "Wealthy Donor To Give Lots of Money for Moorhead" and the world would have been a better place.
Anyway, yeah, Moorhead's president claims if they could get into the WCHA, they've got people lined up that would write the checks needed to fund a hockey program. My level of skepticism about them joining the WCHA is officially downgraded from "9/11 conspiracies are true!" to "Man, that Boondocks Saints sequel is going to be awesome!" Which on a scale of 1-10, bumps it down from about a 20 to 19.
It's an interesting move to try and piggyback on the desire of the majority of the confernece to get BSU into the WCHA, and the desire to have a 12 team conference, but I don't see that being enough to sway anybody in the WCHA. Really, the only reason I even mention this is because the first time I talked about it, I rather inexcusably forgot to make a "How are you gonna keep'em down on the farm once they've seen Karl Hungus?" reference. MSU Moorhead being interested in joining the WCHA isn't a story. Once the WCHA shows an interest in MSU Moorhead, then that would be a story.
