    Stanford Cutting 11 Varsity Sports Programs

    And just what do you think the real numbers are? The numbers I mentioned are those quoted in the linked article from Penn State AD Sandy Barbour. I have no reason to doubt that number - especially since it approximates Stanford's reported numbers. But, even if it's 1,000 or 1,200, the %ages...

    Stanford Cutting 11 Varsity Sports Programs

    Great post. And you're right on Q23. You do cite the letter's reference to gender equity and diversity, but on the former, I don't think Title IX gives them much choice. What I found interesting is that I think most casual observers of NCAA sports presume there is a population numbering in...

    Stanford Cutting 11 Varsity Sports Programs

    Stanford is not unique as it joins other colleges cutting sports programs, but for a university that has won 25 consecutive Learfield / IMG Athletic Directors Cups, it's pretty remarkable. Gone after the 2020-2021 academic year are men’s and women’s fencing, field hockey, lightweight rowing...

    Cleveland Indians ready to discuss changing team name

    Since Cleveland is the Forest City, I could see something like the Cleveland Foresters, or maybe the Axmen, since there isn't much forest area left in the city.

    Pretty soon "Americans" will be offensive. No, let's go further. Humans.

    2020 NCAA Football

    Not sure how UT executed their plan, but it seems, as I posted above, that Penn State's plan inluded an immediate test upon arrival and a 2-week quarantine after the player's reported. No contact or drills that period was over.

    Saw this in a Penn State-focused site, but it applies across the NCAA. NCAA Football Oversight Committee finalizes proposed preseason model And, These are the key dates:

    Non-revenue college sports thread

    Equestrian is "fringe" only if considering NCAA D1 and D2 institutions that have scholarship teams, of which there are 19 and 4, respectively. However, if you expand to consider club teams, there are over 400 D1, D2, and D3 institutions that are represented in the IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse...

    Brady v. Belichick

    Unless, of course, you know Doc Brown and you're sufficiently close for him to trust you enough to let you borrow the DeLorean.

    Brady v. Belichick

    Agree with t4w. And it's really not that simple in ANY scenario. There is an ever-changing combination of the other 52 (soon to be 54) players surrounding Brady and with whom BB had to use varying approaches. I mean, without Adam Vinatieri and Malcom Butler, Brady is down to 3 rings.

    Mac Security

    I'm interested in the common concern. Is there an effective antivirus or malware filtering concern that is suggested for Mac PCs?

    Mac Security

    First, I realize the issue extends beyond Mac PCs, but that is where my interest is focused. From early on and for many for years since, one of the selling points for Mac PCs was their purported insusceptbility to hacking or malware. More recently, however, I've read reports that suggest Mac...

    2020 NCAA Football

    I'm wondering. IF the 2020 football season is cancelled, how many rising juniors who might otherwise declare for the draft at season's end stay put for their senior years? Of course, this does not account for what likely would be NCAA relaxation of eligibility rules to extend all players by...
