Yeah I'd like to see a D-I school like UMASS-Amherst with a six figure scouting budget that combs all over North America looking for kids go into the athletic department and say, "No need for all that money for all of these trips to Saskatoon & Medicine Hat, I found four players down on the Club Team." Hell they barely scout New England let alone players in their own school.
And they blow! Meanwhile, BC, BU, UNH, UMaine, UVM, UConn, etc all recruit in New England. When they go out and get a Canadian or other kid, usually worth taking.
