    Perhaps you and the rest of the aggies should be worried about what your teams do instead of us. You will be worried on Aug.30th. You can be sure of that. And in case you forgot your basketball team while they did beat us only did so by 3 points. You aren't as good as you think.

    Perhaps the basketball program needs to be looked at next. The T-Birds hoops record is pretty sad.

    It's a bummer that the team is gone, but something had to be cut to join the big sky. Tennis was required and is much cheaper than baseball in every aspect IE travel, scheduling, scholarships. It really came down to golf and baseball. Golf found a conference and supports itself. Baseball didnt and cant. Suu is a D1 institution so dropping to a DII level was completely out of the question. That's just what I've heard and learned the last couple years following this team.

    As a former member of the SUSC baseball team (that dates me doesn't it), I am very disappointed in the decision to drop baseball. There are always options and I have hard time believing that a solution couldn't be found. But someone has to want to find a solution. What's cheaper to run a baseball team or a tennis team? They could have competed as an independent or perhaps even dropped down a division and joined a league.
