No Joke! Clemson appears to be serious about adding two Women’s sports! Can you...

Speculate which three out of the original ten have made the final cut?

Things to consider:

1) DIVERSITY - maybe the most important issue.
2) Cost! Which programs would be most cost effective? New facilities not necessary.
3) Quick success! What can we compete in, be successful fast, and sustain a longer term high level of success?
4) Alumni group - what sport has the most well organized Alumni organization that would support the program.
5) Coaching - who would Clemson have available that could bring success with a vision of an eventual “self funded” Olympic sport that could be a model for Clemson’s future as well as other programs across the nation?

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts?!?!

No joke, saw Clemson vs OSU on espn one day while at top golf playing spike ball. Guess its a club team or something, but on ESPN nonetheless.

Bring back the swim/dive team and add lacrosse.

IIRC, half the reason the swim/dive team was shelved was because Clemson has inadequate facilities. Fixing that would cost a lot of money.

11 ACC schools have found a way to afford swimming but I’m expected to believe that poor ol’ financially destitute Clemson can’t? I’ll need a better excuse cuz that one doesn’t fly.

With the success and popularity of softball, just add JV softball!

Well, assuming this isn't a troll post, I'd say definitely Lacrosse; it's probably the fastest growing sport in the South right now, with a strong conference base.

The other two are a tougher guess. Swimming/Diving would be my next guess except we'd have to build a new facility, and that's a huge chunk of money. Maybe gymnastics (popular in the South) and...Rifle? Fencing?

I would think lacrosse and beach volleyball would be among the top considerations.

I would assume that's the 3 finalists unless we want to shell out money for a natatorium or gymnastics facility

They'd probably use Littlejohn for gymnastics...

but I would think the initial investment in equipment would be sizeable.

Beach Volleyball is gaining traction around the country. Both of the other two D1 schools in our state have programs (USUk and CCU). Fun to watch (in a not pervy way) and does not cost a whole lot to start up a program.

I saw a few minutes of Women's Beach Volleyball on ESPNU a few days ago and I found it next to impossible to NOT watch in a pervy way.

Beach volleyball doesn’t help you with Title IX though. Because we already have an indoor team, there are no additional scholarships for beach volleyball.

We need to bring in a equestrian guy from California as a unicorn(Prince Charming) to take our Agricultural programs to a new level with a Lady Tigers equestrian program.

I can donate a couple of nice horses & sell a 10 million dollar horse to the Clemson for less than half price.

We need to all get on board with this sale.

If we are adding two, it will be lacrosse and field hockey.

I would be shocked if sports like equestrian or gymnastics or beach volleyball are added. Those require construction of a new facility and/or expensive equipment/maintenance costs. They also aren't ACC sports if I remember correctly. I just don't see the demand or logical fit for those.

LAX and field hockey have to be the two choices, by a large margin. No stadium costs, low equipment costs, and both official ACC sports with most conference members already having those women's teams.

They are not moving LAX from LA no matter how close California is to us, it’s just to big of an airport.
