Not a Good Look for Clemson - Cutting Men's Track

Recommended Posts

I am big fan of cross country and track, they were my sports in HS and a bit in college and my closest friends at SC were my housemates who ran on the XC and Track teams.   A bit unnoticed story is the idiocy and completely lack of awareness by Clemson to cut men's track and field.  It is the third (and at a lot of schools second) highest participation sport by African American men.  There is quite the ruckus being stirred up now with even a Clemson professor penning a letter to the AD.  Dabo of course could care less and has been silent.  I think a very bad look for Clemson, but typical.......

I don't see how it could be a budget issue.  T/F often has athletes on the team whose scholarship is from another sport - namely football.  Clemson can keep it and it has been documented.  They just seem to want allocate the resources elsewhere.  It's a bad move.  During my time at SC, Eddie Miller and Robert Brooks were unbelievable track athletes.  I would argue Eddie was really a T/F athlete first, not football. Robert Brooks was outstanding at the hurdles.  You also have your bigger dudes thrown shot, etc, and it's a great cross over.  Clemson has a good program too and not to mention, take football out of the equation, they essentially cut off that athletic option for a lot of young men.
