    This is a long read but if you stick with it, the author summarizes why ND with the Big 12 (and Stanford) makes sense. How the Big 12 Can Get Creative With Notre Dame and NBC (heartlandcollegesports.com)

    I haven't read this entire thread. With the move to the new conference are there plans to bring back Men's soccer? i thought this was related to budget issues and nothing else, but I wasn't sure if anyone knows anything. Also I saw that Big XII also has equestrian and gymnastics and wasn't sure if Cincinnati planned to add any sports. I know that D1 requires at least 14 varsity sports. We currently sit at 16 I believe.
    On a few occasions, I've heard John Cunningham say that they approached the B12 to ask if UC needed to add programs. The answer was no, and Cunningham said there are no plans to do so at this time.

    My understanding of the soccer cut was that it was not just budget related. There are a lot of mens’ college soccer programs that are disappearing around the country.

    One of the reasons is that the United States has finally figured out a proper professional minor league system for soccer. This fact is dropping the amount and quality of available players to college programs.

    Then you have figure in Title IX. UC could probably restart the program but we’d have to add something like women’s softball to make it work and stay in compliance. Honestly I’m not sure why UC doesn’t have softball. There are a number of good HS fast pitch programs in the area.
