    Adds baseball and competitive cheer, drops (a successful) wrestling program.

    From the athletic department:

    Is it contradictory to say Oregon had Beaver penis envy?

    I'm going to bet Oregon State isn't all that worried.

    Does the NCAA really sanction "varsity women's competitive cheer" as a sport?

    Probably. They let schools have like 50 gazillion girls on a crew team.

    Can't wait to see what those Oregon baseball uniforms will look like. They'll probably make the MLB Turn Ahead The Clock unis look downright traditional.

    Unlike regular rally squads, competitive cheerleaders must include at least one routine that encompasses a stripper's pole.

    Of course Maryland backs this. It's been trying to pass off competitive cheerleading as a sport, and avoid spending real money on a true women's sport, in an attempt to attain Title IX compliance on the cheap.

    And I woundn't call Oregon's wrestling program "successful". The Ducks had a national champion in 2006, but they have won a grand total of three Pac-10 titles since 1963, the last of which came in 1982.

    Ranked in the top 25 more often than not and producing at least a couple wrestlers each year who advance to the NCAAs is more than a lot of programs can say.

    Of course, when you're battling cross country and T&F in Pre's town, I guess there's just no hope for a "traditional" sport.
