What do you think would be the best low profile scholarship sport?

After reading about two of Nebraska’s great rifle competitors being named All-Americans, I started wondering about this. When I talk about low profile, I mean sports that don’t have a lot of pressure from fans. I am sure all athletes that are good enough to be on scholarship put plenty of pressure on themselves, but not all of them play sports that are as followed as football, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, and baseball.

I was thinking rifle or bowling might be good ones. What do you think?

Here are your flakes.
