Wow. I would of never of guessed it. 

I wouldn't have thought they would do it.

Something had to be done.

I am hearing the women found out during practice, with a high level recruit visiting.  This was handled about as badly as could be.  I had a very low opinion of Kennedy when he was a Minnesota representative.  Somehow he has lowered that opinion.

just trying to maintain civility.

The ice is out of the main arena.

Headline in the Grand Forks Herald, yet we are all still sitting here waiting to be told that it is official. Awesome job @UNDsports

The REA said they were taking the ice out and someone else said the circus was here so the ice would be out.

Continue on your little crusade to somehow show that picture wasn't actually taken today.  Several people have shown you're wrong.

Someone said they saw the same thing from the REA.

Someone else said the circus was in town so the ice is out.

You've been proved wrong in another thread, and you know this is just a lie right now.

But whatever fits your narrative right?

Why would they be practicing right now...for what?

Certainly, if it is public it would be very simple to provide the tweet or facebook post that the REA had.  Feel free to put it here.  Until then, we have a picture from WHockey showing them practicing on the ice today.

Because until the end of practice, they thought they would be playing next year? Surely, you don't think the men's team isn't going to skate until September...

The Men's team has regular practices three weeks after their season ends?  Full squad and all coaches.

Sports practice in the off-season. WIH has a limitation to when the ice is in, and easier to practice now than it is in the summer, when battling hockey camps, students gone, etc. Can continue to get better, just like Spring Football, and other fall sports practicing in the spring.

While i agree with the cut, does anyone have a link to validate the claims of the teams cost being around $1.5 million?

who cares if the ice is out, cutting women's hockey is just another example of UND showing it's a small-time operation.  Move back down to DII or III then.

Some folks believe a current women's player is trying to deceive so people are trying to figure out the facts.
