    Not sure if this was part of the decision regarding gymnastics, but most female gymnasts peak before they graduate from high school. College gymnastics for women is an afterthought. I think the participant numbers that rowing could provide at a relatively low cost was also relevant.

    Considering how many people attend sessions(?), meets (?) at the top schools, the fact that female gymnasts supposedly peak before graduating from high school doesn't seem to deter people from coming out to see them. I have not doubt that Texas could be among the leaders in attendance if the university had decided to pursue gymnastics as a sport. Wouldn't surprise me if they had outdrawn both the men and women's BB teams in their heyday.
