Still wondering: Why drop women's hockey?

Remind me again why UND dropped women's hockey. I'm not a sports fan, but apparently it is the most important sport in these Winter Olympics. Remind me again, also, why the IOOC offers silver and bronze medals, since they apparently are stigmas of failure and coming up short. Taking care of business wins the only real prize - gold.

I wonder what our attitude would be if we didn't have one-third of a billion people sports pool from which to sample. I'm just saying.
