Curious if people agree if this is the case, but my guess is Rugby, Women's Lacrosse, and Gymnastics was cut due to costs and people not really caring. After that, my guess is they needed to find another men's sport due to Title IX, and baseball got the axe. Glad it was baseball instead of track, but wish they could have just cut Rugby, Women's Lacrosse and Gymnastics, or a sport nobody cares about like Golf or Crew, there's a great baseball tradition in California and it seems strange that Cal wouldn't have baseball.
Really you have a point, but those types of considerations aren't really made when things like this are being discussed.

So, they are getting rid of America's sport and downgrading one of the nations most dominant teams (Rugby) while saving a marginal sport that they absolutely suck at???
Let's try this again. You probably don't even know what the term "politically correct" means, or who coined it, when, where and why.
Title IX run amok. Cal is the epicenter of politically-correct thinking. Have fun with women's Badminton.
