I agree, it seems a better approach than cutting the sport totally

also, if schools can determine that a particular student athlete might decide to come to their school to play a non-revenue sport AND is willing to pay full tuition...that could be a net positive for the school overall. The non-revenue sports could be an enticement.

I think this is the D3 approach - where athletics can actually be an enticement for a kid to attend that school.

Also, might not need to be all or nothing for a school for non-revenue sports, perhaps there are a few sports that are not full funded, but others that are?
