Sadly, the next biggest line item for SCSU's athletic department to look at might be womens' hockey.

That's true and there's now one more women's sport than men's sport at SCSU, so no Title IX issue. However, I think the one small thing in favor of women's hockey is the flack that UND received for cutting their women's program. I think SCSU would like to avoid that if they could. Unfortunately, the other thing working against the women's team is that they're terrible and have been terrible for years.

Something has to give. They can't keep raising tuition prices and etc like that have in the past. I think that this is the opening move for more to do that same.

Football, Mens Golf, and Womens Golf were cut. Mens Soccer is being added to comply with NCAA D-II requirements for mens and womens sports in fall, winter and spring.
