University of Cincinnati Drops Men's Soccer

Recommended Posts

It's a good time to slash budgets and blame the pandemic.

As I have mentioned before, Soccer, Wrestling, Track.....are all good candidates to get cut.  Baseball will probably even take some hits as it's a huge drain on the department.

If the NCAA D I required sports for men is lowered to 5, then the number of male sports being dropped will be significant.

Seems like a very bad sign.  UC has a large athletic budget and soccer is very popular in Southwest Ohio, including at the club and high school levels.

If college football doesn't fill up stands in the fall, look for a lot of programs to be dumped.

They were already considering dropping it because the Big 12 doesn’t sponsor men’s soccer. 
 

It is freeing up $800k a year which will help smooth over the impact of the crisis and then can be used to put more money into football and basketball to continue their success all in the hopes of getting a Big 12 invitation.  
 

ODU hopes Cincinnati goes to the Big12 because they want to take a slot in the American conference.
