Here's our buddy Bob Button at Texas Swimming on the cuts:
Men's swimming survived the Title IX purge. Why?The decision comes a little more than two years after the school got rid of men's indoor track. The news on this has been very, very hot on Twitter, and there's a lot of anger out there. And if you have any friends who are exercised about this, please tell them to join the College Sports Council.
Last year, men's track had 47 athletes on the roster. Cross country had 12. Dropping the two sports will result in nearly sixty (60) men being cleared from the athletic department "roll".
This year's men's swim team is about twice as quota-friendly as the running squads were. They have 31 male athletes over at the cement pond.
Just like Cal's rugby team, Delaware men's track was just too popular to keep around...
