But, apparently there is money for sizeable raises for the football coaches: https://qconline.com/sports/college...cle_f177d031-350e-59a9-9650-4bc91ed9361c.html
As a former college tennis player, this makes me sad. I know several guys who played at Minnesota.Minnesota announces they are cutting men's track and field, gymnastics and tennis after this season.
I hope that these programs aren't sacrificed for hockey. Tennis has been one of our most successful programs since Tiley. Of course, fencing was probably our most successful program and it was dumped a few decades back (supposedly as a cost saving move, but in reality to satisfy Title IX). That same statute will require some move in order to satisfy male/female numbers if men's hockey is added. It is certainly cheaper to drop minor male sports than to add more female sports. In any case, adding hockey is off the table for the foreseeable future until this current economic crater is fixed.As a former college tennis player, this makes me sad.

I really hope Illinois doesn't cut programs, but I am starting to get a little worried. I know Whitman had mentioned the possibility of cutting sports in order to add hockey
