    Default Wrestling programs cut since 1972

    It is that time of the year folks. I am again returning to the pulpit and preaching the sad death of Men's Wrestling because of Title IX to my speech class. I gave a similar speech in high school and a real shocker was when I started reading from the list of schools that cut wrestling. I did a casual glance at my search results and I can't seem to find the massive list I had on hand in high school.

    Couldn't find the list I wanted but the NWCA had a pretty comprehensive list.

    A sad trip down memory lane. I hadn't known that Southern Cal and Alabama had had teams in the past. I also noted that it listed Wheaton College as no longer having a team. I was there this past summer (with my daughter looking at colleges) and asked them if they still had a wrestling team and was told "yes." Of course they could have meant a club, but I specifically asked about a team.

    Interesting that Yale dropped wrestling when most of the rest of the other Ivy League schools kept it (Dartmouth being another exception).

    Ya Wheaton has a program, I didn't notice they were on there. We go to their big tournament every year.

    One i didn't see on this list was UNO in Omaha, Nebraska. Their program was dropped about 2 hours after they won the D2 Nationals.

    That list was a sad read.

    I am not sure the last time the list was updated. UNC-Greensboro and Duquesne aren't on there either.
