"A crowd wound around a downtown block in Grand Forks Friday morning for a sale by a local boutique"

 

More people stood in line for this boutique store than stood in line to attend games of that aforementioned "boutique sport." :D

I  wonder  if they feel insulted when someone calls them a  boutique?

So anybody hear/figure out who filed the complaint to the ORC?

 

 

 Was told the sister of Annelese Rice (player on WIH) posted copy of letter back from OCR.  So, not official but we know where it came from.  Check out for yourself on twitter at @lau_rice

Well there it is, also, it's not the pinned post, which is the one where Annelese is suing her dad (along with 18 others) for $240 million, but a little further down.

Someday I hope to have enough money to where my daughter can sue me for $200+ million.

No. It means they're not Catholic.

There are some good quotes in this article, I still think North Dakota was just the tip of the iceberg.

I don't think that its just women's hockey, I think it could be all of college sports. There is too much money getting tossed around at all these schools and at some point an adult needs to come in and slow that spending down.

 I am surprised that a lot of programs that are middle of the road in all their sports don't dump their biggest money drains to become more competitive in a few sports.

Maybe UND just set an example and more will follow.  The NCAA requiring 14 or 16 sports at each school is ridiculous.   

If they could, most schools would probably have their core 4 sports offerings, combined with frisbee golf, rowing, darts,  croquet, ring toss, lawn golf, and six different versions of tag.

You forgot my all time favorite Dodge Ball.  I think I still have marks from that.

So, a complaint was filed on April 1st, we first heard about it on April 21st, does anyone know what the kind of time table there is for this OCR investigation?

"And let me tell you, the women’s hockey program and swimming and diving programs earned the title of “championship caliber.”

The UND Women's Hockey program was a "championship" level program, huh?  What championships did they win?  

Make it stop.

To be fair the S&D team had some championships as a DII program. Haven't done much at D1.

True.  Which is why I referenced the WH hockey program.

I think Swimming and Diving accomplished as much as WH did in a much shorter timeframe at the D1 level. 

Someone correct me...

And so help me, if someone says "olympians"....

We could have went the UNO route dropped football. That would have saved women's hockey.  Plus then there is no need to have a separate football conference for half the teams in that precious slummit league.
