Don't they play Bemidji, Minny, or Duluth??

Yes, already 4x each in the WWCHA. 

What fills the four game void for SCSU left by UND?

I guess I was reading that you said the next closest game was Lindenwood...which Bemidji, Minny and Duluth are all closer.

I now see you are saying that Lindenwood would replace UND in the conference.  I've had a couple drinks so didn't see what you were saying initially..

Read the SC Times story I linked. The nearest team to fill their schedule now is Lindenwood.

No. I'm not saying that. The SC Times guy is saying the closest games to fill their schedule are in St. Louis. 

You may infer from him what you please. ;)

Nothing was learned from the 1980's oil boom, was it?  Just kick back, let the money roll in, then spend it was fast as you can. Nice work.

When you just need to show up to make six figures, the Saturday morning "treatment" is just too easy...

In a smoke filled room-

Mr. X, "Why don't we cut WH?"

Mr. Y, "Can we do that?

Mr. Z, "Hell no! They have nine players on the U.S. national team. They are to WH what UCONN is to WBB! That's how dominant they are!"

We did put billions in reserve funds this time. We're just refusing to use them.

Think they'll leave all the banners that the women won in the rafters?

I thought they were hanging on the parking ramp. ;)

The Legacy fund can't be touched until after June of this yr.  Plus it takes a 2/3 majority vote to have it used.  If you want to have people get up in arms, try using some of that money to save a sport.

I'm not advocating to use that money to save sports. Was simply pointing out we kind of almost learned from the 80s bust.

You mean the t-shirts that UND administration had printed up at The Sioux Shop and gave away free to all students for the university-sponsored on-campus Spring Break orgy?  THOSE t-shirts?

Yes and the fallacies I have seen in many different places now is that last week the coaches did not know in advance, the team was told they were cut while they were on the ice practicing, and that UND intentionally leaked the cuts to the media prior to the press conference.

Just watched for the first time an episode of Vice on HBO. It was about the NCAA and college sports.

Very interesting what they had to say about colleges that claim they are losing money. One guy said "all colleges can afford to pay their athletes, the millions those athletes make these colleges would blow your mind". This episode focused on football and basketball obviously. 

One interesting league they named was the big10,  one of the worst at "exploiting athletes whose families are poor"!

"The big10 charges anyone with game footage $125 per second of footage"! They charge brand names money to allow them to give their athletes free gear and make it mandatory for them to wear it!

Crazy stuff, check it out!

Yep!  The way the news media has portrayed this, Mark Kennedy himself walked out onto center ice during the women's NCAA championship game and pulled the North Dakota squad off the ice!

I thought Geno Auriemma broke the news to the team.

Just read the Lammy twins sent Kennedy and BF a letter in their attempt to fight and reinstate WH. Link is on the GF Herald.

Denial is the first stage in the process....the "anger" stage is coming and it is going to be a b*tch. 

You gotta figure it's going to impact their for-profit hockey schools also.

As much as I enjoy watching them, and respect them for their accomplishments this letter upsets me. Not once did they suggest a possible solution ot the budget problems if they were to reinstate it. Don't bitch loudly about a problem unless you can help provide a solution. 

Not only that but where were they from the get go? They went to the UofM first and transferred to UND later. To me that shows they were never "on-board" with the hockey program at UND from the beginning.
