Ohio State has requested bids on a 4,000-seat arena for its men's and women's hockey teams. But associate athletic director Shaun Richard cautioned that the request does not mean that an arena will be built soon, or even at all.
"We're more just doing our homework to get some numbers," Richard said. "We are not committed to doing this at all. We have no money committed at all. We have no site picked out."
Richard said that if an arena is built, it would likely include two rinks. One would be for the men's and women's teams. The other would be for such things as intramurals and recreation sports.
The teams currently play at the Schottenstein Center, which seats 17,500 for hockey.
