I also don’t see UAB soccer being cut. Soccer is much cheaper to support than hockey.

We have great soccer facilities now and a lot of tradition on the men's side. If a team sport has to go, I nominate baseball. Not much history of success and their facility is subpar.

You have stumbled into an agreement with FBHC Paul Bryant who suggested in the 1970s that college baseball should be terminated when several Bama football recruits those to play baseball in the spring &/or were lured into the MLB draft instead of playing college football.

We may be seeing the down turn of non revenue sports across the collegiate spectrum reducing male and female sport offerings in this category. Costs continue to rise while revenue for such sports remains difficult to raise.
