Iowa State Swim Team to Die Today

By Tim Teeter

April 2. IOWA STATE has stated to the coaches and athletes of the men's swimming and diving team, along with the baseball team, that both teams will be put to sleep this afternoon.

I personally want to thank all of the thousands of people who have contacted the university on behalf of the alumni and current athletes of the Iowa State University Men's Swimming and Diving Team. Eighty-three years of tradition will end today. Nineteen Conference titles will be archived forever.

As one of the men who wore the cardinal and gold with pride, I feel betrayed by my father (Iowa State University). To the men and women who have fought this battle with me, thank you. To my University, I will never forget the betrayal that I feel at this moment.

I commend the University of Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa for their commitment to a broad-based athletic department. Today the Iowa State flag outside my house will fly at half-mast and tommorrow my Iowa State flag will fly no more.

I will wish the administration at Iowa State University the best of luck and, for the first time in my life, I will utter the words, "LETS GO HAWKS!!!"
