Athletic Budget Cut Update #22 - Delaware State drops wrestling
The latest budget cutting news has Delaware State dropping their wrestling program, effective immediately. The rational for cutting the program included financial difficulties as well as the program's poor academic performance rating (APR).
Washington State, which had been contemplating moving the Apple Cup to Qwest Field has stopped all discussions about the possibility. The sticking point was the University of Washington's expectation that they would receive a greater number of tickets for the neutral site event than Washington State would receive.
