^ I think PSU has been an issue of money, and not Title IX, since there is a men's team and a women's team, both at the Club level. At that level, they have won loads, but CKA is right, since they're not in line for the Frozen Four, they are likely to get the person that wants to go to PSU who also happens to play hockey, rather than a hockey player going to a school primarily to play hockey.
I have wondered since the beginning of PSU's involvement in the Big Ten 15 years ago why the whole conference did not have hockey, considering the northern nature of the conference. One could understand why the SEC would not do hockey, but the Big Ten seems ripe for it. But I guess until more than 5 schools are willing to participate at the varsity level, they won't bother. Looks like Illinois is the only other Big Ten school in the most recent D1 ACHA rankings. So it would seem a Big Ten hockey championship would be a long way off.
