Swimming is a must for California schools. There would be a huge howl if that was eliminated. It's the equivalent of Ice Hockey in the Upper Midwest.

MplsBison, this is a cultural difference between the Midwest where you went to school and the Southern climes on the coasts. I'll chalk this up to solipsism, simply not knowing the uniqueness of your experience to that of other regions of the country.

California schools make money on swimming?? No.

That's the basis. Believe it or not, men's hockey does make money for northern schools.


Again -- there is nothing inherently wrong with club sports. A lot of top level athletes in various sports actually compete for clubs, either in lieu of school teams altogether or once their eligibility to compete for school teams is exhausted.

As was said in the other thread ... I just think St Louis is holding out hope for a Big East invite, and views A10 as a prerequisite to that end.

Could be wrong, we will see.
