College Sports: Huge ruling in college sports yesterday as the Chicago regional office of the National Labor Relations Board ruled that the Northwestern football team meet the standards under federal guidelines to form a union.
- In layman's terms this means that football players are ruled as employees of the University. 
- As of right now this only applies to private schools like Northwestern and not the public schools.
- This does not mean players are going to be paid right now, but it does lay the ground work.
 
College Hockey: St. Cloud State was given the 3rd seed in the West Regional. They will take on Notre Dame in the first round, Saturday night. Williams Integracare pregame starts at 7:30pm
