Are tennis, golf, swimming, and soccer revenue sports? None of the Olympic sports are. Even baseball isn't a revenue sport at a majority of schools.
People see only the narrative they want to see.
they lose revenue but are also title ix buffer sports so they can't be cut. do you think we have a rowing team because we want to be good at rowing? we have it to allow our athletic department to exist. same reason we don't have men's soccer, golf, or swimming when we could probably do really well in all of those sports.
notice that clemson is only cutting the men's track and cross country program? if they cut the women's team they'd mess up their title ix compliance.
