HP: Can you appropriately share anything about your source(s) on this? At one time there were far more football recruits admitted by League Schools. I remember speaking at different points with Hughes and Seidlicki circa 15 years ago when a cut to 100 over 4 years was rumored. Seidlicki told me the administrators always seem to be looking to cut back. I thought this was settled but I guess nothing ever is in this League.

Notwithstanding whatever "costs" language may appear in press releases, most suspect that the real reason that teams were eliminated in recent years was due to a sense that too many admissions slots were going towards athletic admits--especially after Operation Varsity Blues abuses.

When those sports were re-instated... the cuts had to come from somewhere else. Hence, football.

I agree that because of a roster glut, we won't see any impact on football anytime soon. Down the road... who knows? Depends on how smart teams are about giving offers to hs recruits. If they continue to give out 120 offers and the "worst" 20 accept them immediately (as our friend An Observer surmised a few months back), it could be a problem.

... as to why those 2.5 slots every year are essential.

And it would be nice if you could come up with something better than "to own the libs."
