So if you want to have a distance only program why would the administration want to keep a track program that will never have as much success at the National and especially at the Conference level as a complete track program. Do the math a sprint & field event program has 77% more opportunities to score points then your distance only program. It is simple math and logic people, please try using it sometime.

Though I completely agree with your points about the limitation of focusing on just distance, it's obviously (no surprise)about $. Administrators can have a distance head coach for cc/track and only pay out one head coaching salary whereas if it was a track and field person they might have to pay out someone else to be the head CC coach/distance assistant for track. At the very least in that scenario, the CC head/track assistant would definitely be in position of leverage to command, potentially, a head coaching salary.
It's the same reason administrators combine most programs-fewer head coaching salaries and assistants to work with both genders instead of one for each event groups or multiple event groups.
