Men's rugby is one of the newest varsity sport offerings by Davenport University, first played in 2009. Davenport began its rugby program, in part due to the growth of rugby in Grand Rapids and throughout western Michigan. Davenport began its rugby program with big ambitions, stating their goal of becoming a premier rugby program in the midwest and advancing to the USA Rugby national championship playoffs. Davenport played its inaugural 2009–2010 season in Division II; the team opened its season in September 2009 with a 100–0 shutout win over Wayne State.

Boston College Eagles men's ice hockey
The Boston College Eagles are a Division I college hockey program that represent Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. The team has competed in Hockey East since 1984, having played in the ECAC; the Eagles have won five national championships, the most recent coming in 2012. Home games have been played at Kelley Rink at Conte Forum, named after coach John "Snooks" Kelley, since 1988, having played at McHugh Forum; the Eagles are coached by former Eagles forward Jerry York, who has won the most games of any head coach in NCAA hockey history, having surpassed Ron Mason's 924th win on December 29, 2012. York is an alum of Boston College, a member of the class of 1967. Boston College is among the top college hockey programs in the country; the Eagles first fielded a team from 1917 to 1929. School officials dropped hockey as a cost-cutting measure in the wake of the Great Depression; the modern era of hockey on the Heights began when former player John "Snooks" Kelley agreed to coach a small team of BC students who formed a team midway through the 1932-33 season.
Apart from a short break during World War II, Kelley would lead the Eagles until 1972. He led the Eagles to their first national championship in 1949, along the way establishing Boston College as a perennial powerhouse in both regular season and post-season play; the current incarnation of BC hockey has had only two other full-time coaches, Len Ceglarski and current coach Jerry York, both Boston College alums. They have continued to build. Both York and Ceglarski have at least 500 career wins. York to date has over 1000 career wins, first all-time and is first among all active coaches. To date, BC has won thirteen conference tournament titles, including eleven Hockey East titles, a conference record, their most recent triumph in 2012 came after beating Maine 4-1 in the championship game. Boston College has made thirty-five NCAA tournament appearances, reaching the tournament's Frozen Four an NCAA record twenty-five times. Under John "Snooks" Kelley, BC advanced to the NCAA tournament three straight years from 1948-1950, winning the National Championship in 1949 after defeating Dartmouth 4-3 in Colorado Springs, CO.
After Jerry York took over as head coach in 1994, the Eagles began to work their way back to the NCAA tournament, having not qualified since 1991, not having been to a Frozen Four since 1990. In 1998, four years after York became head coach, the Eagles were back in the National Championship game, losing to the Michigan Wolverines men's ice hockey in Boston. BC was back in the national championship game in 2000, facing North Dakota, they lost the game 4-2, but returned the favor a year in 2001, beating North Dakota 3-2 in overtime thanks to a sensational Krys Kolanos goal. This was the Eagles first National Championship since 1949; the championship was all the more satisfying for BC as the Eagles defeated in the process the three teams that had eliminated them from the previous three tournaments. The 2001 National Championship team contained current NHL standouts Brian Gionta, Brooks Orpik, Chuck Kobasew; the Eagles returned to the National Championship game in 2006, facing the Wisconsin Badgers in Milwaukee, WI.
The Eagles lost 2-1. A Brian Boyle shot was denied by the post; the Eagles made it back to the National Championship game in 2007, riding on the heels of a thirteen-game winning streak. However, they came up short again. BC got back to the National Championship game in 2008, disposing of Minnesota and North Dakota in the Frozen Four semifinals along the way; the 2008 Tournament marked the third year in a row that the Eagles ending Miami's season, beating the top seeded Red Hawks 4-3 in overtime thanks to an acrobatic goal by freshman Joe Whitney. In the National Championship game, the Eagles met the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, who had upset Michigan in the other semifinal; the Eagles won the contest behind an MVP performance by Nathan Gerbe. The defeat of the Irish by BC has added fuel to the growing rivalry between Boston College and Notre Dame, carrying over to the ice what has been being fought on the gridiron for years between the two schools' football teams in the Holy War; the hockey rivalry, called the Holy War on Ice added the moniker "on ice" in reference to the aforementioned rivalry.
After missing out on the 2009 Tournament, BC returned in 2010 as a number one seed. The Eagles defeated Alaska and Yale in the Northeast Regional in Worcester, earning them a berth in the Frozen Four to be played at Ford Field in Detroit. BC defeated Miami 7-1 in the national semifinal, the fourth time in five years that the Eagles ended the RedHawks' season in the NCAA Tournament. BC would face Wisconsin in a rematch of the 2006 title game; the Eagles avenged that loss by defeating the Badgers 5-0 behind a two-goal effort from sophomore Cam Atkinson and an MVP performance by senior Ben Smith, who would be named the Frozen Four's Most Outstanding Player. Junior John Muse became just the fourth goalie to record a shutout in a title game; the game was played before a record crowd of the largest to attend an indoor hockey game. After a first round loss to Colorado College in the 2011 Tournament, BC once again returned to the Frozen Four on the heels of a 15-game winning streak in 2012. After dispatching Air Force and Minnesota-Duluth with two shutouts in the Northeast Regional in Worcester, they advanced to their 23rd Frozen Four played at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida.
The continued their now 17 game winning streak, making quick work of Minnesota in a 6–1 rout thanks to the ef

National Collegiate Athletic Association
The National Collegiate Athletic Association is a non-profit organization which regulates athletes of 1,268 North American institutions and conferences. It organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, helps more than 480,000 college student-athletes who compete annually in college sports; the organization is headquartered in Indiana. In its 2016–17 fiscal year the NCAA took in $1.06 billion in revenue, over 82% of, generated by the Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. In August 1973, the current three-division system of Division I, Division II, Division III was adopted by the NCAA membership in a special convention. Under NCAA rules, Division I and Division II schools can offer scholarships to athletes for playing a sport. Division III schools may not offer any athletic scholarships. Larger schools compete in Division I and smaller schools in II and III. Division I football was further divided into I-A and I-AA in 1978. Subsequently, the term "Division I-AAA" was added to delineate Division I schools which do not field a football program at all, but that term is no longer used by the NCAA.
In 2006, Divisions I-A and I-AA were renamed the Football Bowl Subdivision and Football Championship Subdivision. Controversially, the NCAA caps the benefits that collegiate athletes can receive from their schools. There is a consensus among economists that these caps for men's basketball and football players benefit the athletes' schools at the expense of athletes. Intercollegiate sports began in the US in 1852 when crews from Harvard and Yale universities met in a challenge race in the sport of rowing; as rowing remained the preeminent sport in the country into the late-1800s, many of the initial debates about collegiate athletic eligibility and purpose were settled through organizations like the Rowing Association of American Colleges and the Intercollegiate Rowing Association. As other sports emerged, notably football and basketball, many of these same concepts and standards were adopted. Football, in particular, began to emerge as a marquee sport, but the rules of the game itself were in constant flux and had to be adapted for each contest.
The NCAA dates its formation to two White House conferences convened by President Theodore Roosevelt in the early 20th century in response to repeated injuries and deaths in college football which had "prompted many college and universities to discontinue the sport." Following those White House meetings and the reforms which had resulted, Chancellor Henry MacCracken of New York University organized a meeting of 13 colleges and universities to initiate changes in football playing rules. The IAAUS was established on March 31, 1906, took its present name, the NCAA, in 1910. For several years, the NCAA was a discussion group and rules-making body, but in 1921, the first NCAA national championship was conducted: the National Collegiate Track and Field Championships. More rules committees were formed and more championships were created, including a basketball championship in 1939. A series of crises brought the NCAA to a crossroads after World War II; the "Sanity Code" – adopted to establish guidelines for recruiting and financial aid – failed to curb abuses.
Postseason football games were multiplying with little control, member schools were concerned about how the new medium of television would affect football attendance. The complexity of those problems and the growth in membership and championships demonstrated the need for full-time professional leadership. Walter Byers a part-time executive assistant, was named executive director in 1951, a national headquarters was established in Kansas City, Missouri in 1952. Byers wasted no time placing his stamp on the Association. A program to control live television of football games was approved, the annual Convention delegated enforcement powers to the Association's Council, legislation was adopted governing postseason bowl games; as college athletics grew, the scope of the nation's athletics programs diverged, forcing the NCAA to create a structure that recognized varying levels of emphasis. In 1973, the Association's membership was divided into three legislative and competitive divisions – I, II, III.
Five years in 1978, Division I members voted to create subdivisions I-A and I-AA in football. Until the 1980s, the association did not offer women's athletics. Instead, the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women, with nearly 1000 member schools, governed women's collegiate sports in the United States; the AIAW was in a vulnerable position. Following a one-year overlap in which both organizations staged women's championships, the AIAW discontinued operation, most member schools continued their women's athletics programs under the governance of the NCAA. By 1982 all divisions of the NCAA offered national championship events for women's athletics. A year in 1983, the 75th Convention approved an expansion to plan women's athletic program services and pushed for a women's championship program. By the 1980s, televised college football had become a larger source of income for the NCAA. In September 1981, the Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma and the University of Georgia Athletic Association filed suit against the NCAA in district court in Oklahoma.
The plaintiffs stated that the NCAA's football tel
Michigan Wolverines men's ice hockey
The Michigan Wolverines men's ice hockey team is the college ice hockey team that represents the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Earning varsity status in 1922, the program has completed its 91st season; until the 2012–13 season, the school's team competed in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, although it competed in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association between 1959 and 1981. Since the 2013–14 season, the Wolverines have competed in the Big Ten, which began sponsoring hockey. From 1991–2012, the team played in 22 consecutive NCAA Men's Division I Ice Hockey Tournaments; the Wolverines have won an NCAA-record nine Division I NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Championships, seven of which came during a 17-year stretch between 1948 and 1964. Two more championships were won under head coach Red Berenson in 1996 and 1998. Michigan has had many successes as a program including a record-setting number of championships, total championship tournament appearances, consecutive tournament appearances.
In 2010, Michigan hosted a Guinness verified world record crowd in excess of 113,000 in an event known as The Big Chill. Players from the program have earned numerous honors, professional championships, international championships, individual statistical championships and individual records; the team is led by Mel Pearson, in his first year as head coach although a former assistant to Berenson. The program has dozens over twenty current players, they hold the record for the most titles at the Great Lakes Invitational with 17 titles respectively. Their traditional rival is Michigan State and the teams have played an annual game in Detroit since 1990, first at Joe Louis Arena, since 2018 at Little Caesars Arena. In 1920, "as a result of the interest in the interclass and interfraternity leagues, in which twenty-two teams took part," an informal Michigan hockey team was organized to represent the university. Mr. Le Mieux of the Engineering faculty, had played 12 years of professional hockey and offered his services as coach.
Because of the difficulty in securing intercollegiate competition, the 1920 team played a six-game schedule against an Ann Arbor team, Assumption College, four games against teams from the Detroit Hockey League. The 1920 Michigan team, with Russell Barkell as the team's high scorer, compiled a 6–0 record and outscored opponents 27 to 7. In February 1920, The Michigan Alumnus noted: "There is a big sentiment for a Varsity hockey team; the difficulties are the lack of a University rink, the arranging of suitable competition." In April 1920, The Michigan Chimes wrote:"The record of our informal hockey team, organized at the close of the January interclass sportsw, has been remarkable. With only two weeks of practice, it has defeated the three strongest Detroit teams.... This one team of ours which seems able to win, shows possibilities of great development has not as yet been recognized as a regular team." The Michigan Chimes published a lengthy article pleading for the administration to recognize hockey as a varsity sport: "Agitation was started for the recognition of hockey as a varsity sport.
What spell, what charm there is in that single appellation bestowed by custom on football, baseball and basketball! What obstacles must be overcome, what sacrifices made, to attain the heights!"With the success of the informal Michigan hockey team in 1920, Michigan moved forward with the development of the hockey team. According to Wilfred Byron Shaw's four-volume history of the University of Michigan, "Hockey had its beginning in 1921, with Richard Barss as Coach. Although not on the Western Conference athletic program, hockey provided a number of Big Ten teams with competition." The 1921 season saw the development of intercollegiate hockey at Michigan and Minnesota. In January 1921, Michigan and Wisconsin scheduled four games to be played on consecutive weekends from February 18 to 26, 1921; the 1921 team began the season with two games against the Michigan College of Mines at Houghton, Michigan. Michigan lost the first game 3–0 but won the second game 4–3. Russell Barkell, the first standout hockey player at Michigan, was the Michigan star in both games against the College of Mines.
However, the remainder of the season, including the planned four-game series with Wisconsin, was cancelled due to warm weather. The Michigan Alumnus reported in March 1921: "The warmth of the present winter has made necessary the cancelling of all scheduled hockey games; the informal team had started off well, but lack of ice made the development of a powerful team impossible."In December 1921, The Michigan Alumnus wrote: "There will be much pushing of the puck this year. The Athletic Association hopes to have more money to spend for Michigan skaters, plans to encourage hockey more than before. We used to spend our time ` doing the grapevine,' but only. More power to the shinny artists."Over the course of a 10-game schedule, Michigan's 1922 squad finished with a record of 5–5. The team opened the 1922 season with a 5–1 victory over Michigan Agricultural College in the first hockey match between the rival schools, they followed with a 3–2 overtime victory over the Detroit Rayls on January 16, 1922.
That month, the Notre Dame hockey team defeated Michigan 3–2 in overtime, marking the first defeat for the Michigan hockey team on its home rink in three years. The team traveled to Houghton for night games against the Mi
