How many of those sports cost UND $2 million per year?

The cost needs to be cut.  Never argued that.  Revenue can be raised by having extra weekends at the Ralph for other events.  Have the women play most games in the Olympic arena or Icon.

Oklahoma and quite frankly of all the sports listed in this quote only softball is televised on ESPN, throughout the playoffs and World Series. College Hockey, Men's or Women's is not. It might be on a sub ESPN channel but not their main channel.  On any given weekend you can watch college softball.  I can't even find College Hockey, Men's or Women's.

For Buccigross being the unofficial voice for hockey and college hockey he has done nothing to get ESPN to show more college hockey games. When ESPN does show a college hockey game it's half empty arenas of the B1G.

Why cut off the program at knees so it can be even less successful and even less people will care when you can just cut it completely and use that money to elevate other programs?

Touching the funding to any degree will cause an outage and moving them out of the REA will mean other programs are going to have to be elevated in some sense, just pull the plug if you're going to do something. Trimming budgets of programs will lead to mediocrity.

Icon is a non-starter: not UND's; no broadcast capabilities. 

REA Olympic or nothing.

I agree 1000% Either keep WH and fund it so it can be successful or cut it and use the resources for other programs.

Since the NCAA forced a regional tournament out of N Carolina because that state forbids males in women's rest rooms and locker rooms, UND should get a line or two of men that play club hockey and for game day they say they feel like women.  Can save on scholarships, be better skaters and puckhandlers, travel and eat first class and the NCAA wouldn't have a leg to stand on considering they have already taken a stand on men feeling like women.  After all, a man just won the women's weightlifting world championship.  Why can't a women's team with men win NCAA WIH?  A lot of men would want to dress in the REA's locker rooms and practice there.

There's a real serious hockey game in 18 hours in Fargo. Next week or so, Pres. Kennedy will lay out a plan that is lawyer-ed up Title IX compliant.

All the more reason that this board needs some levity.
