Background[]

Men's swim programs have been cut by many colleges and universities, often with the blame going to Title IX.

This page began by standing on the shoulders of another effort, a graveyard of past college swim teams, http://www.collegeswimming.com/news/2012/may/02/graveyard-teams-past/ at the College Swimming dot com.
