    Default St Cloud St and Crookston drop football

    Interesting development out of the NSIC...

    Big news brewing in the NSIC: multiple sources have indicated to myself & @ElsenMidcoSN that St. Cloud State is dropping football. A text message from head coach Scott Underwood confirmed a 3 PM meeting with administration, but no other details were provided to him. #NSICFB

    This really sucks for these programs. Was this mostly expected or shocking?

    Always hate to see former NCC schools lose a program. It was tough watching _ND lose football. Wait......
    Sioux SUCK! It just has a nice ring to it.

    St. Cloud State almost dropped football in 2010 and dropped 6 other sports in 2016.

    There's no doubt that hockey is their (SCSU) only marquee sport, but I rarely see that rink sold out for a game, no matter the opponent.

    I wonder if Mankato will see this as a positive or negative development. On the one hand, it solidifies their already dominant position in NSIC football. On the other hand, they may want out for better competition. Pioneer League and then Summit in all other sports would suit them well. That is, if the leadership there had any vision whatsoever, which they don't.
    I don't care what Jim says. That is not the real Ben Franklin. I'm 99% certain.

    Those chickensh*ts at SCumSU are adding men's soccer to their fall sports lineup with these moves. So let me get this straight, to satisfy Title 9 requirements you cut men's football and the golf programs, then start a men's soccer program? Translation: football costs too much money and fundraising is hard so we give up.
