I'm not sure if that was true - is true, but it might be.

NYU dropped football in1953 and basketball in 1971. The remaining sports with the exception of fencing were moved from D1 to D3 in 1981. Basketball was resumed as a D3 sport in 1983.

Here is an interesting historic fact:

Quote:In the 1940 season, before a football game between NYU and Missouri in Columbia, Missouri, 2,000 NYU students protested against the "gentlemen's agreement" to exclude African-American athletes (at the University of Missouri's request). At the time, it was the largest protest ever against this practice.

They used to have sports. My ex-wife played a year of Soccer there in the mid 90's, it was Ricks or whatever then. I think BYU changed the name. They had a tight end there who eventually played in the NFL. Honestly one of the best catching Tight Ends I've ever seen.
Cheers!

Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSUD)... "Metro."

The Auraria Higher Education Campus is home to three schools:
Community College of Denver (CCD)
Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSUD)
University of Colorado at Denver (UCD)

They share classroom space, Student Union, etc...

RE: Largest school with no intercollegiate sports.
And, just for the Minneapolis Bison guy, the "Of Denver" was added in the late 80's after "Metropolitan State College" in Minneapolis sued the Metropolitan State College that was in Denver over copyright. Seeing as the Denver school was the newer of the two, they lost and had to add the "Denver" to their title as a result.

We also got sued by Warner Brothers because our mascot (the Roadrunner) was...ah...similar...to their cartoon. And it really was...but we had to drop the cartoony version for a different rendition.

Good on them.

I generally like NYU, but now I like them more than I did.

Speaking of Minnesota's Metro State, they offer no sports whatsoever(intercollegiate, club, intramural). They have more than 10,000 students(will look up actual size soon.)

Looking forward to seeing when they will add sports.


Their goal is to add football and join FBS. I posted an article about them in my thread about schools adding football and who could be next.
