UND to cut women's hockey

1,732 posts in this topic

From a few things floating around social media, I have a hunch that the Title IX lawsuit was filed by a player and/or a family member of the women's hockey team. If that is correct, I am more likely to believe it was a pure reaction to the decision and based on emotion, not facts. That clearly doesn't mean UND is in the clear because you never know how something like this can turn out, however it does add some comfort that it likely wasn't based on any hard facts, particularly when UND had experts in compliance come in before decisions were made while the lawsuit seems to be have been done with little to no research.

Is she now looking up "endowment" in the dictionary?  ;)

It's not the size of the endowment that matters it's all about how you use it.... Right?

If UND had done this without that step I'd be terrified. Instead, they brought in Baker Donelson. 

And the guy leading BD's Title IX resource group? Uh, yeah, ... "proactive", "litigation avoidance" ... as in he does the audit of what you're going to do before you do it because he knows what the auditors from US OCR will come looking for and he makes sure what OCR finds is all legally compliant. 

Quote

Mr. Cohen joins as a shareholder in Baker Donelson's Atlanta office, where he will focus his practice on representing institutions and their athletic departments in their legal affairs.  His Title IX compliance work includes defending colleges and universities against Title IX investigations by the federal Office for Civil Rights, providing proactive Title IX audits and compliance reviews, and developing litigation avoidance strategies. He serves as a Special Assistant Attorney General in two states to represent certain public institutions in Title IX matters. Mr. Cohen also advises colleges and universities on legal aspects of their strategic planning initiatives, NCAA governance issues and changing athletic conference affiliations.

Schlossman has many awards in journalism and has done a ton of great work.  But, the way he handled the WIH cut was one sided and very unprofessional.  He has lost a lot of credibility by overly supporting the WIH program and the twins.  He needs to be subjective and report the facts, UND can't afford WIH.

His articles have certainly been objective.

His personal twitter has not.  But it doesn't have to be.

The best way to deal with this is to not comment on it day after day after day. The more chatter there is by the public, the longer it will drag on.

I am guessing that the hopes in Fargo are that the investigators fly directly into Grand Forks.

The Lamoureux family's  contributions to North Dakota hockey certainly exceed, by miles, the contributions of anyone on this board.  I think its time to stop ripping them.  Just my two cents.

Other NDUS schools affected by the state budget are cutting sports, programs, departments (Dickinson State). 

Like I've said, I'd like to hear more than just grousing; I'd like to hear the solution provided by the Lamoureux twins. 

Their solution will be to get everyone in the WCHA to boycott until the WCHA gives UND $60 million. :D

So with 4 players now, with more to come, leaving the program....is this issue over now?  YOu would think if there was any chance of a Title IX lawsuit being successful, the players would certainly stick around.  Good for the players that see the writing on the wall and accept reality.  UND womens hockey may not longer be around, but they still have the opportunity to continue their playing career and education elsewhere.
