    If you blinked, you might have missed it: a tiny blurb at the end of a Morning Call article about "Kutztown boots soccer, sinks swimming teams". But the harsh realities of the credit crunch and Depression 2.0 finally hit home at Lehigh athletics in a measurable way:

    Other area college officials contacted by The Morning Call said they know of no plans to cut sports teams.

    Lehigh University, however, is trimming its athletic budget, spokeswoman Linda Harbrecht said.

    ”In response to the current economic climate, Lehigh is making reductions in total spending — including the budgets that support the sports program — in an effort to ensure that sufficient financial aid resources are available for current and future students,” she said.
    I think this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of financial cutbacks at different schools, and not just around the Patriot League.

    Bad news for Fordham’s push for scholarships. If only it can be phased in, perhaps over two or three years… :?
