NCAA President on Title IX

After kicking around the possibility of sanctions against Penn State's football program, Dr. Mark Emmert talked about Title IX (between 12:00 and 14:00):

Watch NCAA president Mark Emmert on PBS. See more from Tavis Smiley.

My wife's very athletic.  We went to a small high school together.  The number of opportunities available to her were trivial.  My daughter came along and all of a sudden, she's playing every sport.  And now I've got this little baby granddaughter for whom, I hope the world is such that she doesn't even think about the idea that opportunities would be denied her.

I wonder if Dr. Emmert would still be gushing over Title IX if proportionality had denied his son (or a grandson) athletic opportunities...
