College / Increasing attendance?
« on: November 30, 2019, 10:08:53 AM »
Loking back at the news of Eastern Michigan University cutting their program a couple of years ago, I remembered the articles that were written about the news.

One thing that stood out for me was that the photos of the team competing showed practically empty seats in the background.

I would assume that revenue and attendance factor in deciding if a team should stay or go. After all, an AD isn't going to cut a team that brings in money.


Here are some images from google after searching for "Eastern Michigan University Wrestling"

- camps

College / Augsburg women's wrestling: freestyle
« on: November 30, 2019, 10:00:20 AM »
With women's wrestling being freestyle at the college level, will that improve their chances on the international level?

Should men's NCAA wrestling switch to freestyle as well?
