St. Cloud State drops some eggs ... er, sports

Recommended Posts

Good for them . Colleges focus way more on athletics than they should. Academics should be the main focus. If a sport can not sustain themselves even a little then they shall be cut. Saves the tax payers and student loan borrowers thousands!

Yeah, it was DII, but no school without a television network deal should be sponsoring 23 sports. 

And yes, somehow SCSU can cut athletics programs and somehow still meet Title IX.

They are only putting $250,000 into six sports combined?   If UND cut six sports they would save $3-4 million.

Why'd "Bad Medicine" by Bon Jovi just start playing in my head? :D

Decision on SCSU title IX suit. Not good for the admin

Federal judge: St. Cloud State athletics fails to provide equal opportunity to women. http://strib.mn/3198usE  

 

Yeah that is not good, I totally forgot about this case. 

This makes me think..... this could have been UND's fate

SCSU is struggling mightily with enrollment and thus funding, this will have a domino affect on the quality of education at the school but at least the women's hockey team will have their own sauna. More likely than an investment in women's athletics there will be cuts on men's programs to reach the equity

Per report last year:

Fall 2018 enrollment was 13,467

Fall 2016: 15,092

20-20 hindsight, the sauna would've been much cheaper in the long run.
