That’s exactly why they’d cut it. You lose the roster spots, that are required to match the on-campus gender breakdowns. So they’ll still have their scholarships for mens outdoor track and CC, but they won’t have any indoor roster spots counting towards their male athletic roster counts.

This is what leads me to believe that these have title IX influencing the decision, and not strictly budgetary.

In the end, I think the post above nails it on the head. I think ADs have an opportune time to cut sports they have wanted to do away with otherwise. Cutting a non-revenue sport will always help your department financially, but it’s terrible for your image as a department. I think once the dominoes fall, many ADs are going to use the chance to balance out their budgets, and have more funds for revenue sports long-term
