Baseball couldn't swing what they needed. 

It looks like men's golf won't make it either. 

And for those saying $60 million is too much: You want to live of the interest.
Right now, 4% rate of return (interest) is safe. You don't want to eat into the $60 million principle. 

$60M * 4% = $2.4 million annual budget <-- that's what WIH had been running 

$60 million might be low. 

Stuff. Costs. Money. 

 

Does the $60 million also bring back S&D?

Don't believe so, think that was strictly Women's hockey.

But wouldn't they have to add back the M/W S&D for Title IX, that's my thought.

I'm afraid not.  That only works at Duluth where hockey and diving are one in the same.  

Add in Minnesota.

Why doesn't Mr. Chipman send a check for the $60M? He's supposedly worth $500M. Put your money where your mouth is or shut it.

Anyone, alum or not, can call/write UND to bitch/praise anything they want to.

Somehow Chip needs to write out a big check if he wants to voice an opinion?

Personally, I'd handle Chipman as a businessman --> Thanks for your interest; here are the numbers; would you like to invest in this. Be aware, without further investments this venture will close.

I love on Facebook a woman said UND should've kept Women's hockey and not have spent the money on a new medical school. Women's hockey > academics.:lol:

She'd better hope she never gets sick because I'm not sure a good powerplay cures cancer.

She would have more people in the OR than at the REA.

No but money talks and bull&#036;%&#33;# walks. Or more precisely money pays the bills and pissing and moaning doesn't usually get you very far.

More broadly, when is the exaltation of victimhood going to stop? That's what today's Humanities professors have been exclaiming for years with their cultural Marxism religion they borrowed from the U of Stuttgart. WIH players still have ample opps in the Marxist / femiNazi bastion that is Minnesota.  Next they will demand a pro league paid for by taxpayers.

It's those Stuttgart scholars who started the nonsense that only people in the majority groups (i.E. Male, white, Christian) can be racist because they were born privileged.  Now whole universities have staff full of that nonsense.  Women, Muslims, and people of any shade of color can't be racist because they are not members of a privileged class.  So WIH is without question a victim of racist and gender privilege according to them.  Someone that claims it is transsexual or Islamic has to be right because they were so underprivileged and always had aggressions against them.

Haha. The Medical School even runs on a completely seperate budget than the rest of the U. I heard there were projects cut out due to cuts.

The new building is actually helping alot by opening up the old one to other departments allowing the old outdated buildings to be taken off line/demolished. Deferred maintance were racking up on those buildings, probably at a lower cost per year of WIH tho.

What you are describing is the "bread and circuses" that precluded the fall of Rome. 

It's been explored more recently as well here: "Beer and Circus: How Big-Time College Sports Is Crippling Undergraduate Education"

Yes but expanding it to pertain to US society as a whole....    I am way out of my depth here but random thoughts sometimes escape...

You must've missed where I said "precluded the fall of Rome." 

As I've said to PCM at times: "Welcome to Rome, stand by for the fall."
