temple eliminates seven sports

Temple announced today they will eliminate seven sports. Crew, gymnastics, baseball, indoor and outdoor men's track women's crew and softball.  It will leave 17 sports for Temple.

A trend??? Baseball and softball are becoming very difficult as a NE college sport.

Skewed toward the men's side = title 9. Somewhat surprised by TU as it is a state univ.

Isn't TU 60 pct female??? That is a problem along with that fact they have to compensate for football which has no equivalent.

As I said on the the Holy Cross board, it makes no sense to these BCS schools to absorb the travel expenses for soccer, Lacrosse, field hockey, baseball et al to distant locations plus the time lost in classes for sports that have multiple games per week. For these sports, a more regional affiliation in these "non-revenue" sports seems more appropriate. They must continue the non-revenue sports for title IX reasons.

These new conferences created for football are of course terrible for other sports, and they may be bad for football in the long run.  I am watching UCF play SMU right now. Both teams are in Temple's new conference.  I understand there was some bad weather this week in Dallas, but there must be 3,000 people at the game. Rice is also playing Marshall in front of nobody, yet SMU and Rice play in different conferences.
