Legal group defends Columbia hockey, but team doesn't want help

Four words on their posters--"Stop being a p - - - y"--got Columbia University's ice hockey team slammed with a semester-long funds cut and suspension last week. The team declined outside legal help, telling the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education that the members wanted to argue their case "within the system." FIRE, apparently, did not care. It sent a letter to Columbia President Lee Bollinger, anyway, the Spectator reports.
