    And Stanford announced they’re dropping 11 sports after this year, though I don’t believe most of these are even NCAA sponsored: M and W fencing, field hockey, lightweight rowing, men’s rowing, coed and women’s sailing, M and W squash, men’s volleyball, and synchronized swimming.
    MVB definitely is, they won an NC about 10 years ago, not sure about the rest. It should be noted they are dropping them AFTER this coming academic year, so they can still compete this coming year if there is a season.

      Those all sound like the kind of sports where Stanford competes with maybe a couple dozen other Upper Class Twit of the Year schools and rolls up those laughable Directors Cup numbers.

          It's OK, son. Your undergrad was fine.

          (We are one of the 34 varsity sailing schools, the vast majority of which are either naval or snoot city, and apparently we suck at it. Amazingly, Princeton is not, though they have a sh-t ton of sailing Hall of Famers. There's a story there.)

            Unless I missed one, it looks like the sports they’re dropping that count towards the Directors’ Cup are fencing, men’s volleyball, field hockey, and wrestling. And they only scored points in fencing and wrestling during 2018-19.

              I have nothing mean to say about fencing. A know a very nice man who did fencing. Also, it's f-cking cool. And it will be practical once guns are illegal.

                        It's funny that the things a person can do for a lifetime, like tennis, golf, swimming, etc..., are always the first sports cut at every level of school.
                        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                        • BT going with conference games only for football. Possibly within the division only with some home-and-home series. Although I can understand it what's the difference between traveling to IL vs. say CO?

                            • The ACC should also limit themselves to conference games. But, like, real conference games. No games with sorta conference affiliates to headstrong to join a conference.

                                Wait, you know another fencer? I had never seen a bout, took it for freshman gym, then lettered in varsity the next two seasons, making it to eastern regionals as a junior. Team was cut before my senior season. . Guess that’s what happens when your squad is so bad a newbie like me could make the cut....
