So called 'Cancel Culture' is NOT the problem here. The problem still lies with Miller and to a certain extent, his parents. He was taken to court, reprimanded by the magistrate, ordered to community

Here's my advice for Mitchell Miller. Don't even think of leaving UND until you have a degree. Be a good citizen, student and teammate. Then go out and see what kind of pro hockey career you can

I can’t hold what Miller did at 14 against him as an adult.  But he is responsible for making amends afterwards; especially now that he is 18.  From all indications Miller (and the Miller clan) have n

Miller's childhood friend @nateking30 is a goalie in juniors right now, and is also black. He defended Miller on Twitter but has now locked his account after harassment.

"How dare you defend a kid for harassing a black kid!" - grown adults harassing a black kid. Yes, this is an oversimplification for dramatic effect, but the outrage mob is a plague.

Please tell me you're kidding that people are harassing @nateking30.

The official statement from UND President Armacost:

Quote

Dear UND Campus Community,

I have been closely monitoring the situation concerning Men’s Hockey student-athlete Mitchell Miller, who was involved in a situation as a youth in 2016. We expect our students to live by our values in the classroom, in the community and when representing the University on the field of play.

After much consideration and discussions with Mitchell, the Miller family, our Athletics Director, Bill Chaves, and Coach Brad Berry, I have decided that the best course of action for Mitchell and the University is that he no longer be a member of the UND Men’s Hockey program. Mitchell may remain a student at UND and we will continue to support his future intellectual and interpersonal growth.

We wish Mitchell well in whatever path he chooses in his future endeavors.

Lastly, I want to thank Coach Berry and Athletics Director Chaves for working with me as we navigated through this difficult decision together, and for working with Mitchell and his family.

Sincerely,

Andrew Armacost, President

Let the second-guessing and outrage over political correctness begin. :p

I'm still waiting for the USA Hockey explanation of, and apology for, putting a Team USA jersey on Miller ... twice. 

I'd be willing to bet Armacost was taking heat from the faculty.

Good grief . . .

Is there still a spot for Tychonick or Reid?

Tychonick made his decision. See ya. 

Miller is already off the official roster at FightingHawks.com. 

Honestly, the defense will be fine.
Remember: We still have 8 D on the roster (Bast, Rieger, Kierstad, JBD, Frisch, Sanderson, Kleven, and Moore). Like I said, this roster felt configured for this possibility.

I know.  I don't disagree. 

Just unfortunate that UND let Tychonick get squeezed out while allowing Reid (another NHL pick) out of his commitment for things to end up like this.  Hindsight is 20/20 as they say.

There are (at least) 3 kinds of justice:

1. Retributive

2. Restorative

3. Rehabilitative

If for any reason you just can't get past (1), you are likely a cretin or a neanderthal.  At the very least, you don't have a sufficient grasp of the concept.

Opportunities missed, sadly.

I'm guessing Miller has the opportunity to go play in the major juniors or different league but I'm wondering, do you think if he opts to remain as a student at UND, that maybe UND will leave a path for him to possibly rejoin the hockey team somewhere down the road?

So rather than helping him and the situation UND just says see yah? So does he have a chance to make the team again or just black ball him? I mean Brad Berry did not know this would be the out come? What a terrible situation all around. This should have been taken care of before he stepped on campus.

Changing course after putting out the statement in support of Miller a couple days ago bothers me and isn't a good look, but at least the situation won't constantly hang over the team and fanbase for the next 4 years.  Moving on.

That's true, the focus would have hurt the ability for the team to talk to the media without having to answer questions all the time.

This is basically where I'm at. The University has egg on their face for how they handled this, but the team can move forward and not have this hanging over them.

What Miller did was wrong and he deserves to suffer the consequences from that. But the way this has been handled from UND and Arizona is just wrong. Berry never should have offered Miller if he had knew right away what happened. He was committed for what, 2 years? Allowing him to come to campus for 3 months and giving him a second chance just to take it away. 

Edit: I would have taken his scholarship money away and just let him be a walk on for all 4 years.
