    Re: NYT report: colleges cheat on Title IX compliance

    If anything, the article shows why the way Title IX is enforced is so stupid. Having to pull random women off of campus to fill out your roster spots? Needing guys to practice against because you can't get enough girls who are interested? No way that shows that the school has met the prong about interest for Title IX. Nope, the only prong that the enforcers care about is proportionality, nothing else, so of course universities are going to game the system. It's the only way they can hope to meet the quotas.

    A guy on my down floor practiced with the women's team while I was at ISU, he was a baller but too short to be on the men's team, so he gave up hundreds of hours each season and his only payment was free basketball shoes.

    Title IX was a well intentioned law whose enforcement has caused disasterous consequences to college athletics.

    This. I agree there needs to be something in place similar to Title XI because it HAS been wildly successful in bringing more women into college athletics and closing the huge gap that existed between men and women's sports. However, basing it strictly on proportionality of student base at this point seems to be too broad of a brush. I don't really have a good solution, but I think it is definitely something that we should revisit.

    Re: NYT report: colleges cheat on Title IX compliance

    Does title IX require the same (proportionately) number of scholarships or just the same number of opportunities to be involved/compete?

    Pretty sad, really, but who loses in the end? That girl at UC-Irvine who wanted to stay on the swimming team, certainly.
