    Here's his email. His name is Dr. John Christensen.

    Nevermind. It looks as if this DB was on board 100% with Alberts. My email probably won't be so respectful now.

    What a gutless move by Alberts. Pathetic.

    I honestly couldn't even finish the article. Imagine if someone did this with a women's sport!

    How hilarious is this: "and the wrestling team would need more funds to become competitive at a higher level."

    What does this guy know about being successful at anything? He has failed at everything he's ever done for a career.

    The bottom says - "University regents must approve the changes." - does anyone know if the regents are public or their contact information? Seems like emailing them (POLITELY) is the best bet for change, as the AD & chancellor have already made up their mind.

    What gets me as much as the cutting of a sport is the way he did it. To call a team that is celebrating a national title and tell them, 'Sorry, there will be no next year' is a gutless move. Even if wrestling HAD to go, he could have handled it with some baseline amount of class and respect, which he clearly knows nothing about. Just pathetic all around.

    Just read an article someone linked on flo's forum. I guess it really does come down to money, no matter what themat article said. They say they can't afford to offer 27 more football scholorships because that would mean they would have to offer more women's scholorships. Not sure what it has to do with wrestling, because like the last article, I couldn't finish reading it. Damn Title IV! But anyway, an article is up on the flo forum.

    It has nothing to do with finances with wrestling no matter how he tries to spin it: "the wrestling team would need more funds to become competitive at a higher level"

    The guy is out of his element as an AD, plain and simple.

    Right... cause, you know... to compete in D1 you need better headgear, and, like, those special kind of wrestling mats for the practice room that all the D1 schools have but D2 schools don't.

    But hey, bring on the lawn fairies cause soccer balls are cheap.
