College Wrestling Dropped Project
« on: December 26, 2012, 01:32:55 pm »
If anyone has concrete information on when programs were cut (not guesses), please comment on this thread. I'm still working on the research project to identify when schools that once had wrestling programs ceased to exist, as well as tracking new programs, name changes, etc. The Divisional makeup has changed quite drastically, so you can disregard the division column.

Jason,
             Excellent topic.

All divisions have been hit hard, but it seems the NJCAA has been hit particularly hard.

Here in California, seeing UC Davis, Fresno St, and Fullerton St dropped for absurd reasons was tough, but I think you will see some growth here soon, although its likely to be non division I.

It would be nice with 28,000 high school wrestlers to have 2 more division I teams here.  I believe the best bets for division I would be private schools, and I think Fresno St will come back eventually when that current administration leaves.

Where the west coast will likely see its growth is D2 and NAIA.

I agree. In California, that's totally true. I wouldn't be shock to see 1 or 2 more schools add wrestling here in California. I have talked to a few AD's who have interest and know the numbers of high school wrestlers in California.

I think I've mentioned it before but there is a group here in OR really trying to get Western OR to restart their program.

How's that coming? Any luck?

Are they receptive?

What about programs piggybacking a men's program with a women's program? If we are trying to grow our sport, why not bring both in at the same time? Could be a good "angle" to revive wrestling at some colleges.

It's just to tough to get enough women to participate at the level they need to be at in college. Washington State has one of the highest rate of women wrestlers/participation in the country. They even have their own State tournament along side the boys tournament. YET ... we only have 2-3 wrestling at the next level.

"According to the Idaho State Board of Education’s most recent athletics budget report, released Monday, the wrestling program had $115,705 in revenue for 2015-16 and $467,655 in expenses. Fourteen of Boise State’s 16 sports lost money, but were buoyed by the revenues of football (primarily) and men’s basketball. The Mountain West currently has seven baseball-playing schools. Those include Nevada’s budget of $1.3 million and Fresno State’s of more than $1 million."
