    This is good from the PR side of things but while the Military Academy beefed up their program after to losing to MIT in 2005 and 2007 MIT’s response was to cut the pistol team from varsity to club status (along with several other sports), a curious thing to do to one of the very few nationally competitive varsity sports at the school. Doubly curious when the rifle team was retained despite never having won an national championship. Here’s the accompanying Boston Globe text article for the linked video which mentions this.

    For more details on the consequences you can see Former varsity sports, profiled which goes into how they not only lost the coach but also quite a bit of time in the Freshman year, which is when one normally earns the required 4 PE credits. A very bad thing at MIT where time is at an extreme premium.
