University of Maryland's proposed athletic cuts hit close to home
Initially, I read with mild interest a recent newspaper article that stated a 17-member commission has recommended that six sports at the University of Maryland be eliminated in an effort to solve budgetary shortfalls caused by declining revenues from football, men's basketball and fundraising. The sports targeted for elimination are men's tennis, men's cross country, men's track and field, women's swimming and diving, women's water polo and women's acrobatics and tumbling (formerly known as competitive cheerleading).
