Iowa State Daily: Reform Title IX


(via Cyclones)

The editorial board at the Iowa State Daily thinks it's time to re-think Title IX.  They point out the damage it's doing to male athletes.  Read more here.

Because of the restrictions created by Title IX, men are now unable to play in collegiate sports for which they are highly qualified. The necessity of equal funding for men's and women’s sports, paired with the inevitably massive funding that goes to football, prevents worthy men’s sports from being fully college-sponsored, funded and supported.

Thanks to proportionality, they no longer have a men's swim team...but they do have 128 players on the foosball roster...and 22 coaches to help out...

    if they could get by with just a hundred players and twenty coaches, they could open up slots for twenty-eight swimmers/divers and a pair of coaches.

    file this one under 'common sense just ain't all that common'...
