"Some of these schools have billions in endowments , let them spend some of that." Sorry, it's all about money and since it's not your money, it's easy for you to say.
My point is that some colleges can't afford to do it or won't be able to do it because it quickly adds up to a lot of money.

You are obviously not very intelligent . Your “point” is what exactly ? There are schools who can’t afford or don’t care to fund girls lacrosse programs , is your point that those schools that can should not because some schools can’t . Exactly how does it hurt Stanford to dip into their massive multi billion dollar fund and give these players a chance to get back what was taken from them . We get it , your high school player is not very good and this just makes it harder for her to get lucky enough for some college coach to take a chance on her. Tell her to work harder and not rely on the misfortune of others to try and bolster her chances .

You must have your head in the sand. This has nothing to do with HS. The University of Wisconsin has plenty of money to provide an extra year for spring athletes, but chose not to because it doesn't make financial sense to do so in this economic climate.

"He said the athletic department is modeling three budgets for next season: one with competition returning in full; one with no fall sports, including football; and one with no fall or winter sports."

"One of the arguments against having senior athletes return for another season, Alvarez said, was other students won’t get a chance to finish a semester of studying abroad or be able to take part in a final musical performance that was canceled. 'Anybody that went through that, it just ended,/ he said. 'And so, I think our faculty reps thought that it shouldn’t be one group be cherry-picked to get credit and be able to come back to pick up that year of eligibility.'"


The ACC is also considering doing the same thing.

You and the author of that article are misinformed at best . Again with your logic they should choose to eliminate all future scholarships in “this economic climate “. In actuality the study abroad kid will still be able to do so in the future and the musical performer can go to grad school and still perform in a musical while the athlete would not have that option . Not sure why you do not get the clock in terms of eligibility ends for athletes it does not for these other students you are speaking about .

No, a lot of schools are just trying to stay afloat. Those school who are financially stable are taking significant losses.

Big 12 commissioner and staff are taking a 10% pay cut.
University of Louisville coaches are now taking a 10% pay cut.
Iowa State University Athletics Department staff and coaches are also taking a pay cut.
Old Dominion University just dismantled its wrestling program.
University of Bridgeport Athletics Department is laying off many of its staff.
The Stanford University President and Provost are both taking 20% pay cuts.

Colleges are primarily about education and NOT about sports, so that is why Wisconsin decided to cut out the athletes. It's a shame, but just like HS, they don't have an obligation to give
any athlete 4 years of sports.

You are right:
The music performer can go to grad school
The study abroad kid will still be able to do so in the future

And the women's college lacrosse player can still play lacrosse after college... If she is good enough, she can play still lacrosse for the WPLL.

Again you are just misinformed , ODU cutting wrestling is unrelated to Carona . If you are equating playing in the WPLL to playing in the NCAA you are clueless. Actually there is an obligation for 4 years of sport to be available to student athletes as long as certain criteria are met by the athletes and there have been many law suits and precedent in the past in this regard . You are okay with the study abroad and music performer being made whole but don’t want the same option for athletes.
You say in one comment it has nothing to do with HS then go on to mention HS athletes . They also have several avenues to get their high school year back if they wish to do so and again why not give as many as possible the opportunity to get back what they lost .
It’s obvious you are only concerned about the impact this may have on your daughter , what’s funny is the obvious pleasure you are getting from some of these schools not allowing 5th years to return will in the end make it harder for your daughter to get recruited .

Cincinnati Soccer Portends for NCAA Lacrosse

Due to athletic department budget restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic, Cincinnati has shut down its men’s soccer program. This move by the University of Cincinnati portends for NCAA Lacrosse. Like Cincinnati Soccer, NCAA Lacrosse programs are going to get shut down.

Director of Athletics John Cunningham announced the university’s decision Tuesday, which is effective immediately. Cincinnati will honor soccer players’ scholarships for the duration of their academic careers and allow them to be released immediately from the Bearcats’ roster if they wish to transfer to another program.

“This was a difficult decision, but one made with the long-term interests of UC Athletics at the forefront,” Cunningham said in a statement. “During this time of profound challenges and widespread uncertainty, I have engaged in a comprehensive and thorough review of UC’s sport offerings and long-term budget implications of supporting the number of student-athletes currently at UC. Based on this review, and in consultation with President Pinto and other university leaders, UC Athletics will no longer sponsor a men’s soccer program.

“Our men’s soccer student-athletes have been outstanding representatives of the university in the classroom and on the field,” Cunningham said. “They may not fully understand this decision, but I want them to know they were truly and conscientiously considered during my deliberations about the future of UC Athletics.”

The university started its men’s soccer program in 1973, and the Bearcats recorded an all-time record of 385-408-84. The team went 5-11-1 last season, and longtime head coach Hylton Dayes stepped down from his position in March.

The ending of Cincinnati’s men’s soccer team could potentially be the first domino to fall in a string of other schools cutting sports programs. With sports shut down during the pandemic, universities are financially impacted by the lack of revenue coming in and face even bigger budget restrictions if football season does not start on time or is canceled this fall. Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger and Pat Forde explored how the NCAA system hangs in the balance amid this uncertain time.

Most schools do not make money off the majority of their sports and rely heavily on college football and men’s basketball to keep their athletic departments afloat financially. Schools are already looking at ways to save money by asking athletic directors and department leaders to take pay cuts, extending football season-ticket renewal deadlines or reducing teams’ travel budgets. With college football’s status up in the air, many other college sports could continue to be impacted.

There was talk about the program being dropped for some time and honestly they are using this as an excuse . Yes other programs will do the same especially for programs they were already thinking of dropping .

The AD from Notre Dame was on Golic and Wingo (ESPN radio) this morning and they asked him about spring sports and the extra year of eligibility. Each school will be different but at ND he said it will be up to the coaches of each sport to decide how to handle it, with 3 parameters:
1. The student athlete must complete their undergraduate degree within 4 years.
2. They must apply to, be accepted and enroll in a graduate program at the school.
3. The coaches will build their teams within the confines of their budgets, with the athletes getting the same, less or no financial package.
