USF Olympians?

USF did have swim teams years ago.  Money is probably why USF doesn't now.  For starters a new pool would be needed on campus.  Many colleges just have women's teams and not men's to comply with Title IX.  Tampa Bay and state of Florida produce tons of young fast swimmers so fielding a USF swim team would be no problem

Why don't they add swimming? With the area talent seems like a no-brainer. I really wish USF had some program geared toward Olympic competition. It's not like none of the American have swimming.

Short answer, money.  As was mentioned, a new aquatics facility would need to be built, then there's staff salaries, scholarships, travel expenses, etc.

Another reason to hope the football program does good and brings in $$$.

    “This is not a broken football program by any means. It just needs to be united, to get everybody on the same page, share that same vision, and really to have that standard - best is the standard.”
