Default Cal cuts baseball

Since 06panther10 is running the show and doesn't want to see the title baseball 1 year later anymore thought I would start a new one that has nothing to do with UNI but is a huge story considering the location and teh conference they are in.

just kidding, man.

In all seriousness, it is pretty amazing that a school like Cal has to cut a major sport.

Have you looked at that state's budget crisis? The terms "California" and "misspend money" go hand in hand.

I know but the alumni have made so much money... one would think if any of them gave back a little then Cal could have never over spent.....

Undergraduate alumni from Cal have founded or co-founded such companies as Apple Computer, Intel, LSI Logic, The Gap, MySpace, PowerBar. The CEO of google is an alum.

Not to mention a few sports alum who have done pretty well for themselves....Tony Gonzalez, Aaron Rodgers, Jason Kidd to to name a few.

I guess I just don't get how the school can over spend when they have these resources.... this is just a small handful of the top money people who have Cal ties.

Cal has one of the bigger endowments in the country. It appears that their alums do give back, but perhaps not specifically to athletics.

Those are all nerd/geek companies. Nerd/geeks are not into sports.

This comment moved from the 1 year later thread in accordance with 06panther10 rules:

Cutting two mens sports (and cutting back on a third) and two womens sports. Interesting. I wonder how close they are to being title 9 compliant.

Iowa States biggest 2 donors are a chemical guy and a banking guy..... these are assumptions on the 2 biggest... So the nerd part doesn't apply... you don't have to play sports to like them...

First off, I was joking. Second, those guys don't qualify as geeks. The guys mentioned from cal were pretty much all in high tech business, not the same as chemicals or banking. I question whether you really know who ISU's two biggest donors are anyway.

I hope their players, coaches and all dozens of their fans throw a big hissy fit and suggest there's some giant conspiracy at work. Still waiting to hear all the bombshells that were supposed to have come out after UNI cut baseball.

The bombshell was that the basketball team was going to make the sweet 16.

I think the bigger story is that they cut the men's rugby team. They have only won 25 national titles in the past 30 years (including this year). Its like Iowa telling the Dan Gable wrestling program to become self sufficient in 3 years.

Only good news is that the rugby team plays on Witter field (or at least did). As in Dean-Witter.

Not sure if anyone follows the CWS but I'm kinda rooting for Cal. Its a win or die situation for them unless they make the Championship series. If that's not motivation/pressure then idk what is
