Cal May Restore Cut Teams To Satisfy Title IX


Katie Thomas of the New York Times reports. "But there is a chance it will never come to that because the university is considering reversing course. After originally saying it would take at least $80 million in private donations to reinstate the five teams, officials recently said they would accept $25 million to guarantee the return of the teams for a shorter time if supporters could demonstrate a long-term plan for financing the teams. The Cal athletic director, Sandy Barbour, said she had received a proposal from supporters of the affected teams that includes about $12 million in pledged donations. Officials are said to be considering a range of options, from reinstating none to some or all of the teams, and an announcement is expected Thursday. Barbour said the university’s decision to consider reinstating the teams was in reaction to the outcry by supporters of the cut teams, not to a dawning unease about how Cal would comply with Title IX. "There was, as we anticipated, a lot of emotion, a lot of passion," Barbour said, "and quite frankly a little bit more of a call to action perhaps than we anticipated." "

With this great start, our $10 million goal is well within reach. By January 1, 2013, each program will complete a strategic business plan to achieve long-term financial sustainability. For the Baseball Program, this plan will be built on fiscal accountability, cost control, and revenue generation from as-yet untapped sources, to ensure that we do not face this threat again."

Cal Cutting Baseball, Gymnastics, And Women's Lacrosse, Relegating Rugby


Click on the title of this fanshot or here to read the Daily Cal story regarding cuts to the athletic department. Essentially, Cal is cutting baseball, men's and women's gymnastics, and women's lacrosse. Further, men's rugby will be re-categorized in a way that allows it to still be a campus sport. Here is the official press release. Here is the most important part, of course: The campus will honor existing scholarship commitments for those student athletes whose teams have been eliminated, and the campus will support students wishing to transfer to other schools to compete. According to an FAQ released with Birgeneau's letter, "a total of 163 out of 814 student-athletes are directly impacted � baseball (38), men's gymnastics (19), women's gymnastics (15), women's lacrosse (30) and men's rugby (61)." The total number of intercollegiate teams at UC Berkeley is now reduced from 29 to 24. The removal of these teams will allow the campus to save $4 million in the first year and put the department in a better position to control its costs moving forward, according to Birgeneau.
