Minnesota Board of Regents Finalizes Decision to Cut Men's Gymnastics

Written by

Sadly, despite a strong case, the Board of Regents of the University of Minnesota voted to cut Men's gymnastics, indoor track and field and tennis.  The motion passed by a 7 to 5 vote.  The Men's program had developed a counter proposal that showed a path to self-funding and the addition of a new women's sports paid for through a public club program.  Originally, the University had been expecting up to a $70M shortfall in their budget.  After the resumption of football, this deficit has been cut down to $30M.  Despite this positive changes, these thee sports were not spared.  Men's outdoor track and field has survived and roster cuts to other sports have been planned, but not finalized.  These cuts on the women's side may be lessened with the decision to save men's outdoor track and field.
