In eastern PA Bloomsburg, Lock Haven, and Mansfield merge. Probably means the loss of a D1 wrestling program.

In western PA California, Edinboro, and Clarion merge. Probably means loss of another D1 program.

Individual sports may not be affected

"Under the plan, the three schools would operate as a single university for management and workers but keep their individual names."

By limiting the merger to management and the employees, it clearly viewed as a top end cost cutting move. Academic programs will proceed though one school may be steered to focus at a group of majors while others focus on different majors.  By retaining the campus and brand of each school, it will be difficult for students of one school to wrestle geographically and under the title of a different school

On the other hand, the can easily use this as a reason for cutting sports programs.  To the benefit of wrestling Clarion and Edinboro have national reputations that their other sports have not achieved.....but that hasn't held other schools back now has it.
