    and how is swimming not supported by the Pac 10? and you can't say that haven't had success!

    2008 PAC-10 DIVER OF THE YEAR

    Micky Benedetti, Jr., Arizona State
    Benedetti, from Rome, Italy, finished off a sweep at the Pac-10 Championships in Federal Way, Wash., taking home the title in all three events. Benedetti became only the eighth diver to win all events in the Championships since the platform was added in 1988. The three-time Pac-10 Diver of the Month went on to win the 3-meter and the platform at the NCAA Zone-E Championship. At the NCAA Championships, Benedetti finished a strong seventh place in the 1-meter, ninth overall on the platform and 10th in the 3-meter. This is the second consecutive year that Benedetti has received Diver of the Year honors.

    Only in America. This is at the same time that Russia just last year rolled out a National program "Wrestle and win" with full backing from the government and sponsors to develop wrestling clubs across the country. Lets keep fighting wars and kill people instead.

    By the way, I just found out from one of my peeps that they just dropped swimming, not diving. That's pretty odd, right?

    Mens + Womens = 1 coach.

    Swimming usually has a larger roster size than diving though.

    Honestly we have been following this all day, it is sickening. I can only hope something good will come out of it, but at the same time this is not a good thing to happen to college wrestling. Both Oregon and ASU in one year, both Pac-10 schools.
    Champions are made while no one is watching.

    It make perfect sense, the more I think about it. Keeping diving allows them to keep up their number of sanctioned sports so that their D-I status is safe, but at the same time, it's a sport that costs little more than scholarships since they just practice with the women.

    Yes, our competitive cheer team at Maryland is totally seperate from the spirit squad. It isn't simply a matter af annointing them as a "team." The OCR laid out the criteria we had to meet for them to consider competitive cheer a team for the purposes of title ix: scheduling, scholarships, coaching,etc. And they don't show up on the sideline for games.

    The University of Miami did the same thing a couple of years ago. I gives them another team with minimal investment. Without digging into the NCAA Manual I don't know how or if the scholarships are seperated out like Cross Country is if it is a stand alone team without Track and Field.

    Sports by Brooks wrote a post - warning, the pic they used was the racy one that got the cheerleading program tossed (allegedly!), so if you can't look at coeds in their undies while you are at work, wait to click until you get home:
