Eastern Michigan University decided to drop four sports on March 21, citing a savings of 2.4 million dollars. Wrestling was among those four sports. On Episode 428 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, we talk with Eastern Michigan accounting professor Howard Bunsis, who has been critical of the cuts and claims Eastern Michigan will actually lose money by cutting four sports.
Bunsis was a faculty representative for the NCAA until 2005. He's been critical of the school's spending on football in the past. Eastern Michigan athletics was contacted requesting an interview from A.D. Scott Wetherbee to answer the very same questions posed here. That request was declined.
