I am referring to comments that McGarry recently made regarding UND hockey vs the "rest of UND".
I am unsure of how the Betty was funded, but see that it cost around. 9.9 million dollars in 2018 dollars (per Wikipedia). Remember, it was built without video screens, and those only appeared recently.
Ever since the "Dear Chuck" letter, UND has had their hands tied. Some obvious benefits to UND and GF, some major problems. (Being tied to a donor that had a Nazi party or parties is one thing that comes to mind as a problem.)
