Add Minnesota, which is cutting four sports, including men's indoor and outdoor track and field. Gophers just spent 13M building a new T&F facility that will now be used by half of its intended participants.

Fresno State drops three. Wrestling, Women's lax and men's tennis

https://gobulldogs.com/news/2020/10/16/g...anges.aspx

Women's Lax started in 2009 after wrestling was dropped (in 2006). Wrestling came back in 2016. Two of the newest sports on campus, gone.

Former ODU women's lacrosse player Sarah Lautenbach was an assistant coach when Fresno State built the program from the ground up. Spoke to her yesterday, she's now a D3 head coach up in Oregon, but she's gutted about the loss. Said she put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into getting that program off the ground. Then the league around them dissolved, and so did the school's support.

"Today's decision does not end our commitment to the student-athletes and staff within the swimming and diving programs."

Yes, that's EXACTLY what it does.

It’s easier to add sports at the D2/D3 level, schools don’t have to commit (or as much) Money to scholarships.

There are Division I schools that are enrollment driven. Division III uses athletics to bring in students to schools that wouldn't otherwise be there. That's the draw to adding new programs.

With an average roster size of 33 and a scholarship max of 9.9, tuition-paying students to bring revenue in to the schools where they enroll, yet their tuition dollars aren't realized in by many D1 departments as revenue, where the schools in D2, D3 and the NAIA realize them as such and it's one of the benefits they see in adding sports. The scholarship cost is a fallacy when those seats wouldn't be otherwise filled.

When a school adds, it's not just looked at from the athletic department's budget, rather what it can bring in for the entire school. That's often overlooked when cuts are made.

That being said, here's another weird suspension that would drop UMKC's active teams this season to just seven.

There is a very good chance that a D1 school that has 20,000 students would still fill those seats of “walk-ons”. So it’s not as if they can’t fill a spot of a wrestler who doesn’t go to their institution because they don’t offer wrestling (assuming that wrestler is D1 level talent).

Take a smaller D3 school that has an enrollment of 2000, it is likely that a D3 wrestler may in fact attend that school because it offers them a chance to wrestle.

I am not a fan of the argument of the school loses money if an Olympic sport is dropped because those students won’t go there anymore... Smaller institutions, it might be a factor, but larger schools, not so much

I'm not disputing that, but guess what, I can tell you with 100 percent certainty, all those out-of-state students who came to the school occupying space on Hampton Boulevard came to wrestle - and that's why ODU got their tuition dollars beyond the partial scholarship they were on. The ones who got academic rides, came because they got their school paid for in other ways and got to wrestle. Once that opportunity dried up, they left. Less than 10 athletes, to my knowledge, remain from the cut program. I'll be keeping a running tab on their performances next season (provided there is a season).

That out-of-state student's cost per credit is costs significantly more than the in-state non-athlete, but that's not anything you or I don't already know.

It's not just likely D3 athletes chose a school because of a sport, its closer to absolute certainty. There's an incredibly small portion of athletes at any level who pick a school, then decide they're considering competing in that sport.

Per dropping Olympic sports - At Michigan State, not an issue. Those seats get filled. Most Power 5's it's not an issue. At Stanford and W&M where there's a competitive process to get into the school, those seats will be filled and the school gets their tuition dollar no matter what.

Thing is, because there's no uniformity in how schools account for this (thus, why I feel "scholarship costs" is bogus), we have zero to compare. This pandemic has exposed how bad some schools are at actually budgeting.

Didn’t want to start a new thread but W&Ms interim AD was asked what he thinks about moving the Tribe to the Patriot League. He gives some really transparent answers. And while I’m sure the interim status is the only reason we’re getting that, it’s still cool to hear.

I've been saying for years that W&M would be an awesome (and better) fit for the Patriot League.
