    Indeed. Title IX, the best intentioned bullshit ever (due to stupid sports like football and baseball).
    Cut football instead. All the sudden you can have wrestling, rugby etc.

    yeah, somehow i don't see Arizona State cutting football...

    or maybe the solution is to not count sports like football and basketball that essentially support themselves in title IX.

    Actually football usually makes more revenue than all of the other sports combined, and provides for funding of those sports. So cutting football usually isn't an option.

    But seriously, how much does a wrestling program even cost? It's not like it takes a hell of a lot of equipment and a big expensive stadium. What do you even have to pay for? The coach's salary I guess.

    This really sucks. Doesn't ASU usually have a pretty solid team too?

    It's not really econimic. They have to have the same proportion of men and women sports plus there are other weird NCAA rules . NAIA is constantly adding Men's wrestling while NCAA is constantly dropping them so it more than econimics.

    Interesting read.

    There are fewer than 100 Division I wrestling programs today as opposed to more than 400 some 15 years ago. Only Stanford and Oregon State still offer wrestling in the Pac-10.
