Soon, only schools in the major conferences will have the ability to field non-revenue sports. Swimming, water polo, skiing, wrestling, track and cross country teams will be too expensive to operate because the cost of fielding those teams will go through the roof. Schools outside of the big four conferences are going to be scrambling to find funding sources just to try to remain competitive with schools that are in those conferences. There's soon going to be a major league and a minor league of college athletics. The differences between the two will be stark. I, for one, am thrilled that CU will be in the majors.
