Probably the first domino too


I would be surprised if they don’t cut all of the running based programs, male and female, eventually. This seems to be the precursor to that.

When Clemson cut swimming and diving, along with a few different sports, they kept women’s diving alone for a few years. They dedicated like 9 scholarships (approximately) for women’s diving. I have to think they kept this for title IX compliance. They ended up cutting women’s diving too, after I imagine they balanced out the rosters and scholarships elsewhere in the department.
