Ferris State fans continue to support their hockey team

Ferris State hockey fans have shown one thing this season: it doesn't matter which team you play, just keeping winning.
There was a lot of fear that Ferris' move into the Western Collegiate Hockey Association this season would result in declining interest in the program. With Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Western Michigan and Miami leaving the Central Collegiate Hockey Association and going to other conferences, Ferris would not have one of those schools on the home schedule. In past seasons, they all came to Ferris to the delight of hockey fans.
Instead, Ferris fans would have to settle for Alaska, Bemidji State, Bowling Green, Michigan Tech, Northern Michigan and Lake Superior.
Nothing against those programs but they certainly don't have have the name appeal of the Big Ten and MAC schools. Still the Bulldogs are ranked in the nation and leading the WCHA standings. Fans are cramming the 2,500-seat Ewigleben Ice Arena every game and not just to keep warm although, it seems like it's been in the teens every home hockey weekend.
Ferris has shown that if it plays good hockey, regardless of whom it's against, the fans will come. That's why it's been a banner season for the Bulldogs so far.
