Texas Coach, Eddie Reese, Comments on Iowa State's Decision to Kill Men's Swimming -- April 2, 2001

AUSTIN, March 2. Texas Coach Eddie Reese on Iowa State's decision to cut the men's swimming and
diving program:
"It is an extremely unfortunate situation, not only for the Iowa State student-athletes, but also for the Big 12 Conference. I am hoping that it (Iowa State's decision) is not a finalized decision and if I know Iowa State, they will keep fighting for the program.

My only hope is that all schools and their administrators remember the importance of these student-athletes and take action now not to lose
another well-redeemed program like we have with the Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa State's programs. Our student-athletes should always come first in these decisions while also keeping the schools' best
interests at heart."

On the future of the Big 12 Men's Swimming and Diving Championships:
"With the loss of Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa State's programs, as of now we do not have enough teams to maintain our swimming conference, and I have no idea what our next step will be in having a conference
championship. I am an optimist and am still hoping that both Kansas and Iowa State will keep their programs."
