Everyone - there will be a press release about this tomorrow.

Might want to reserve judgement until then.

it is interesting that UP is dropping a sport that just accepted Seattle as an affiliate member for 2011.

FINE! We won't judge, but we will have our red pens ready when we analyze the diction, spelling and punctuation of the press release... and back to our regularly scheduled program.

Woooooo, video board! Might make for some very cool viewing parties for away games, etc. (As long as they provide pokies for us to toss at the screen for bad calls...)

So, what does a golf program cost? Some travel $'s and entry fees? No uniforms, equipment or facilities to buy. A few bucks for the driving range?

Golfers get a lot of free gear (like most/all UP athletes). About a bazillion clothes for all types of weather, in order to rep Nike/UP at all times in public as well as having different clothes for different days at tournaments. Workout shoes, golf bags, travel bags, club covers, etc...

I can't say how it's all funded but it would seem there are real costs associated with fielding golfers.

Guess we'll have to wait and see what the release says today.

I personally will check to see how everything is spelt.

Notre Dame has their own golf course, and we can't afford a few scholarships. Guess we are little brother.

Welp, there she blows: http://portlandpilots.com/news/2010/10/29/GEN_1029101624.aspx

I started a thread under the "Other Pilot Athletics" section, it seemed a more natural fit: http://www.pilotnation.net/other-pilot-athletics-f9/goodbye-golf-hello-women-s-crew-t3583.htm

Goof thing I held MY judgement. What a well-written press release written by our very own news bureau.
