    That's usually the result of gathering a bunch of college professors and administrators into a room together.

    "Let's fix the problem by sawing our own foot off. We're smart, right?"

    I agree, which is why I commented on it seemed an almost even split on men's and women's sports. Most of them were things like rowing, which don't have many athletes or fans but I'm sure the equipment for rowing isn't cheap either. I like the way though that they will be honoring all the scholarships.
    That's the least they can do, I feel bad for those athletes. Competition in any college sport is tough, but it's super competitive at the D1 level.

    I have to wonder if they looked at Title IX when dropping the sports, but most are club sports at most schools in the list I saw and split pretty evenly among women's and men's sports. I'm not surprised at all sports like Volleyball weren't dropped with how much of a national power they are.
