UND to cut women's hockey

They earned those World Championships. They earned those Olympic Medals. So please don't make it sound like those things were handed to them on a silver platter. Did the ice time at REA help them achieve those things? Absolutely. But the Lammy twins are fighting a much bigger battle than getting ice time. They are fighting for future generations of female hockey players, who may not have the same opportunities they have had if they don't speak out. And they have been very grateful for the support they have gotten from everybody in this area; so please do not imply that they are ungrateful and spoiled. Everyone who knows them and/or has worked with them will tell you otherwise.

I supported eliminating WIH because of the staggering amount of red ink it took to keep it going. But I also support the Lammy twins for promoting and advocating for access to hockey for girls and women. That is what will make women's hockey more competitive, popular and yes, affordable, in the long-run.

The point I was making is off the sports that got cut, and all the athletes pas and present that played those sports, the Lammy's are the only two that continue to bring up the issue and criticize UND every chance they get.  UND doesn't have a women's hockey program anymore.  Is that denying girls an opportunity?  Sure.  But UND women's hockey isn't the only "future of female hockey players."  Instead of being bitter that UND dropped the program, they should be focusing on other avenues that can expand the sport of womens hockey.  UND having a womens hockey program certainly wasn't the only way to do that.

Anyone want to give Peter a different cause to go after and send him NDSU's M/F participation numbers? He might be onto something with the second half of his tweet and he has my full support.

I am surprised that Ohio State hasn’t fired him for talking about UND’s former women’s hockey program. I mean he does have a job to do at Ohio State.

They were The Ellen show. Should have pulled her aside.

Exactly!  There are very deep pockets out there looking for a good cause.  It actually could happen and I'd love it if a private donor could do this for UND.

All for WIH at NDSU so they can straighten out their Title IX situation.  Scheels Arena will be happy to accommodate them.

By looking at his Twitter profile (UND shirt, Location: Grand Forks, Profile link to UNDsports.com) you sure wouldn't think he was the associate head coach at OSU.

Look at the opportunity these girls got on these other teams.  Glad it worked out for them.

Pretty crazy year with both Minnesota and Boston college not making the frozen 4. Apparently there are 6 capable schools in WIH now.

Just think, they all could’ve been apart of a UND team that wouldn’t make the tournament. Instead they get to actually go to the tournament and actually win a game for a change.

Sad, but true.
