You televise mediocre Gopher men's basketball on TV week after week after week, but you can't manage to televise championship level, history-making women's hockey? Maybe it's time to reward the teams around here that actually win and make us proud!

The money they spent on forcing the "Sioux" name to become extinct would have paid for this event many times over. I think it is time for the NCAA to get some new blood and start doing what the people actually want and need. The comment by spares78 tht nobody cares is stupid to say the least!! Go Gophers!!

I think it is pretty poor how the NCAA acts like they support and think of the student athletes best interest but because of money will not show the women's hockey tournament. There is a chance of history being made and women's hockey getting the push it needs to succeed but once again money is put first. It is sad how we have to hear about the Miami Heat chasing a record on a daily basis on multiple tv and radio shows, but the Gophers get very little attention. The Miami Heat and NBA basketball is a business that is as phony as the WWE. We waste so much time talking about and dealing with greedy pro athletes that worry about how many millions of dollars they will make. Majority of them feed the fans lies about wanting to bring home a championship and playing for the love of the game. Why can't they take less to help bring in more top notch players to help be a contender if it is as important to them as they preach. Why not show support for the women's hockey who really plays for the love of the game? The NCAA, the Big Ten Network and Turner should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this! The NCAA needs to get its priorities straight, how important are the student athletes? .

Complete mismanagement from top to bottom that only hurts women's hockey! Why is the Frozen Four in a much too small Ridder Arena rather than at the available larger next door Mariucci? And then no TV. This whole Frozen Four may be the worst ever and pity that the U of M and NCAA have much responsibility when the Gopher women are doing so well.

4 good teams and fully sold out arena. What an opportunity to promote the sport! But the shortsighted NCAA doesn't get it. Sigh.
