Indeed they did.

D1 Wisconsin-Green Bay suspended men's and women's tennis indefinitely:

D2 Sonoma State ends their men's and women's tennis teams and women's water polo:
http://news.sonoma.edu/article/ssu-disco...polo-teams

D2 Notre Dame de Namur University is fighting off closing their doors due to falling enrollment. They announced in March that they were ending enrollment and athletics. They have since restarted enrollment.

D2 Urbana University is closing their doors for good:

D3 MacMurray is closing their doors for good:

JuCo Mercyhurst North East is closing their doors for good:

I believe the total lost teams is 90.

Thread wherein we list colleges and universities that are eliminating sports
My count was 93 as of yesterday morning. I’m tracking them all by division, athletes impacted and gender and sport.

I’d not seen the Fayetteville State one, so that makes it 94.

RE: Thread wherein we list colleges and universities that are eliminating sports
The ECU report is really interesting. I'm reading through it now and will post quotes I think are relevant/interesting.

https://news.ecu.edu/wp-content/pv-uploa...Report.pdf


Quote:Football season ticket sales, which is a key revenue driver, declined from 19,050 in 2016 to 12,908 in 2018. Historically, football ticket sales account for 14-17% of ECU athletics revenue which is higher than the AAC average. Season ticket sales increased to 14,063 in 2019, and the 2020 sales goal was 16,000 before COVID-19. The revised 2020 sales goal is 10,000, which is informed by sales data at the time of this report.


If I'm reading this correctly, they had a miscalculation of $48 million.

Quote:The pro forma prepared in April 2018, which was informed by a feasibility study, projected revenue of $42.7M over 30 years. The pro forma was updated in December 2019 with 2019 sales repeated for the next 29 years and maintaining the initial built-in inflation. With other adjustments detailed below, the updated pro forma now projects a loss of nearly $6M over 30 years.

Quote:Number of Sponsored Sports – Current legislation requires FBS schools to have a minimum of 16 varsity athletic teams. As noted in the prior section, ECU has more sports than most of the other AAC schools but is also near the bottom of the conference in total operating budget. The working group recommends leadership consider the elimination of one or more sports. In addition to the fiscal analysis, decisions must also be informed by an analysis of related compliance.

RE: Thread wherein we list colleges and universities that are eliminating sports
IMO by June 30 (lots of end-of-fiscal) the landscape will have changed.
LY ODU reduced spirit squads (oddly because of safety constraints at SBB) by a few
I think 50% of schools will reduce spirit/cheer squads and their travel (not because of SBB sidelines)
35% of schools will reduce athletic bands and their travel (unless those units are paid by School of Music)
very bare bones admin/SID travel (that will kill ECU and UNCC, they send everyone that wants to go somewhere)
30+ baseball teams will be gone from D1
12+ wrestling teams
15+ men soccer teams
(17-20) swim/dive, MLAX and mens golf teams

very few women's sports (Title IX will follow the Law of Unintended Consequences)
I think golf and tennis will be reduced to single semester competition

and the big one: a huge reduction in international student athletes (plus a large reduction made by world students not allowed/able to study in USA 2020/21). I think plenty of international student athletes will not come back or will have a reduction in money for school.
Such a reduction will be greatly change soccer/tennis/golf/swim team rosters, plus abilities. Teams loaded with Euros may scramble to find US kids that can play.

Add Central Michigan men's indoor and outdoor track, which counts as two sports, but it's the same # of athletes.

We're at 102

Not sure the institutions that closed should be included on this list. There is a difference between your sport being cut because your athletic department and your sport being cut because your institution has closed.

Not sure the institutions that closed should be included on this list. There is a difference between your sport being cut because your athletic department and your sport being cut because your institution has closed.

People can interpret the raw data anyway they wish. I'm providing a list of all the sports teams that died during this pandemic. I'm not editorializing the numbers. This is why I've added sorting options for schools that have closed.

Personally, I feel if a school is closing for financial reasons, and a sport is getting cut for financial reasons, those are similar enough, but there's 102 teams not coming back next year. Sure, we might have lost a handful of the sports at those schools without the pandemic, but those sports were casualties during the time of the pandemic.
