Minnesota College Cuts Hockey

Fans in hockey-crazed Minnesota have one fewer team to follow after the University of Minnesota-Crookston canceled the school's Division II hockey program, effective immediately, the Crookston Daily Times reports. The school is already bracing for state budget cuts and has struggled to find a conference to play in ever since the Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association decided to go exclusively Division III.

Although there is no total estimate of how much the elimination of the hockey program saves, the team's travel budget alone was $85,000 last year and was expected to rise to $90,000 next season.
