When former Minnesota goaltender Brent Solei was tacking on his first career win last January in a 5-1 victory over now-defunct Wayne State, I assumed I was seeing the beginning of the end for College Hockey America.

The NY Times had an interesting article about Rutgers football and the costs surrounding it. As a UMass alum, it brought back some Title IX nightmares from the past when the university had to cut some very successful sports. It's worth the read.
Ever since Rutgers, New Jersey’s largest state university, began its campaign several years ago to become a big-time football power, bad things have happened. Less-glamorous sports teams — tennis, swimming and fencing among them — were downgraded to intramural status to save on the budget, and more and more money has gone to football rather than academics.
