UND to cut women's hockey

1,586 posts in this topic

In the lamoreaux twins world, money must grow on trees. How do I get accepted into this world!?

 

Also where was all of this support when the women's team was losing $2mil plus per year?

They should be ashamed that they have made it impossible for women to play in the Olympics and still keep their college eligibility.

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.

Here's the link to anyone who hasn't read it.

I think this issue is going to go on for awhile.

Their claim that UND cutting women's hockey is detrimental girls/women's hockey. What is detrimental to women's hockey is the USA and Canada spanking teams 7, 8, or 9-0. USA and Canada dominating the Olympics doesn't look good at the Olympics.

If the women's national team wants to save women's hockey at UND I won't stop them, maybe they get the WCHA to pay UND for a team it worked for USA Hockey. The twins and their teammates better find around $31 million to fund the hockey team along with the other sports needed for Tilte XI.

(I used $31 million because $2 million only cover a season. So they might as well do the ASU way of starting hockey.)

Edit: Why does it seem like people only care about how many Olympians UND has and not winning National Titles?

That's a good question on how the NCAA will work around that now.

They haven't found a way to work around it for Major Juniors, but you can bet that it will be a different story for something they deem politically correct.

Sick of how they keep relating UND and USA Hockey as if they are one in the same.  

The "Olympian" line they and Schlossman keep spewing means absolutely nothing to the University of North Dakota and it's athletic department.  Nothing.  If it did they would get more than 200 people for a playoff game and pull in more than 25K in revenue.

Smearing UND consistently won't help the fundraiser for the family vacation in the Sioux Shop.

Sure we could save women's hockey.   It would just take 31,000 people donating $1,000 each to generate that $31,000,000 endowment noted above.

But the harder part is finding funding for the corresponding men's sport so UND doesn't have Title IX issues. 

Double edged sword, that one is.

Mike Commodore has some good tweets on the issue. At least he agrees it sucks but a buget is a buget.

In a fistfight? I'd knock them out like Joe Mixon.

Need to get Trump involved.  Rebuild the team and have  Finland, Germany, Canada, and the IOC pay for it.

Did they have that many total people attend home games over the past few years?
