Cutting hockey in Minnesota

I didn't think they could actually do that--that it was protected by the state charter or something. But it's true and a sign of how bad things actually are--in case you missed the speech last night. A Minnesota state school is cutting hockey. Minnesota-Crookston has decided to end its DII program to save money. No firm figures on just how much money, but the team's travel costs alone are $85,000-$90,000 annually.
