Anyone know why Kentucky and South Carolina are able to have Division 1 mens soccer teams?
Why doesn’t Tennessee or anyone else have a team?
Title IX. Gotta have the same amount of women’s sports teams as men’s sports teams. I don’t remember which team keeps UT from having one, but I’m sure someone on here will know.

So if UT adds women's gymnastics, like they should, then UT could add men's soccer. I think it happens within 5 years.

Edit: I didn't quote the posts I meant to, but I believe that's the way Title IX works
They’d probably give those extra scholarships to the baseball team if I had to take a guess. It’s not equal number of teams, it’s equal number of scholarships, which is why you see more random women’s sports to equal the football team

So, a USMNT game this evening ... will we be playing our younger roster, either because of EPL duties for guys like Pulisic, and/or because we can take this opportunity with our greener kids in this non-CONCACAF game? What should we expect from each side?

Thanks for the reminder, forgot about this match.
It will be a great opportunity to see a lot of the younger players.
