Athletic budget update #67

Here is the latest budget news from around intercollegiate athletics:

Knox College (DIII) announced it is dropping its wresting program.

Yeshiva University also dropped their wrestling program.

North Carolina Central (DI) considered dropping its women's bowling team and adding women's golf, a move that was endorsed by its trustees.

Akron dropped their baseball team as part of $60 million in institution-wide cuts.  And then announced it would provide cost of attendance stipends to all athletes, with the total cost similar to the savings from the elimination of baseball.

Here is an in-depth review of the subsidies that are provided to the seven Division I schools in Louisiana.

Philly.com contrasts the celebration from Temple's football victory this past weekend with the emotions of the teams that were cut by the school in 2013.
