    Two things I miss about Iowa State

    My college fraternity's chapter there ... and Iowa State baseball

    Diamond Reflections

    I'm sure this is a sore subject for many of you, I apologize for bringing up some sad memories ...

    If I ever win the lottery, I'll have to look into what could be done to make things right!

    here is what we have to do, petition to the NCAA football is not a gender specific sport so that opens up a loophole in title 9.

    Men's swimming bit the dust on the same day as baseball.

    Good luck getting rid of women's swimming.

    ISU doesn't finance hockey. I don't think they finance men's tennis either.

    Doesn't Title IX have to do with the number of scholarships available more than number of sports?

    Yup. And technically, football AND wrestling are dual-gender sports.

    Neo-feminists don't care though. As long as they are keeping the man down.

    Re: Two things I miss about Iowa State

    It's not a chapter 9 thing that is keeping baseball away, Pollard has said that many times. It's funding because it costs around $1.5 mil a year to have it for a sport that comes no where near bringing back that kind of revenue to fund itself. I think this topic has been beat to death, we need to have some huge success in other sports before baseball is brought back or someone willing to commit a huge chunk of money just for baseball.

    Re: Two things I miss about Iowa State

    I wonder where the $1.5 million figure comes from... When the eliminated baseball it was costing around $400k. The top programs in the country have budgets around 1.5 mill and they have to staff 8k+ stadiums. Title 9 is not an issue though, Iowa State will always have an advantage there being an Ag/Engineering school.

    Being able to find a game of basketball any night of the week at Lied. Some nights there were 24 courts going and you could choose your next victims carefully...

    Not having to drive after the bars and the people who I spent my time with when I was there.

    It sucks when your core group of friends gets scattered across the nation. Instead of going out twice a week, living together, etc. You see each other one or two times a year.

    Re: Two things I miss about Iowa State

    The $1.5 mil figure came sometime last year when Pollard was on SoundOff and someone brought up the question about baseball. Pollard explained it was not a title 9 issue and that we just don't have the funds at the moment to bring back baseball with all the other things we are trying to do with football and basketball which bring in most of the revenue. I believe he said if there was enough private funding committed he'd definitely look at bringing it back sooner if the money was committed to it but right now we can't afford it under our current budget.

    Again, this was several months ago that I heard this so don't hold me to the accuracy of it but I distinctly remember the $1.5 mil number he put out there.
