How many people do you think went to this hockey game in Florida? (Not BC vs Minnesota, the other one)

ESPN Boston has a story today about BC beating Minnesota in the NCAA Hockey Semifinals last night, which is the reason I stumbled across this bit of information:  In the first Frozen Four Semifinal yesterday, Ferris State beat Union College, in Tampa, Florida.  On the list of sentences I never expected to type, that has to be number one of all time.  This brings three very pressing questions to mind: One, why would they ever hold the Frozen Four of college hockey (which is basically only played in New England, states that border Great Lakes, and the Dakotas) in Tampa, Florida?  Two, how did tiny little Union College in Schenectady, NY, with 2,200 undergrads and zero athletic scholarships, ever make it to the Division 1 Hockey National Semifinals?  And three, there is a school called Ferris State?  Apparently they're named the Bulldogs, from Big Rapids, Michigan, and tomorrow night at 7 pm EST they'll play Boston College for the National Title.
