There are three prongs to Title IX.

1) proportionality, indicating that the percentage of female student-athletes involved with intercollegiate athletics is similar to the ratio of the female/male composition of the student body,

2) demonstrating an institution’s commitment to Title IX by expanding the number of sports for women,

or

3) satisfying the interests and abilities of the female students by providing sufficient opportunities.

Football is generally 1/3 to 1/4 of the entire student-athlete population, so no FBS school meets Title IX on prong one.

Generally, prong 2 is easier to prove. No where does cutting a men's sport satisfy prong 2. More often, cutting a men's sport is a cost-savings move to either cut the overall budget or add more money for football. Georgia Southern adding women's golf while moving to FBS is a way that meets that requirement. Adding 20 scholarships and 25-30 players will never be met with an equal number of women's scholies, yet App St, Charlotte, FAU, FIU, Georgia Southern & St, ODU, South Alabama, Texas St and UTSA have all made the jump. Most didn't even add a sport.

Prong 3 is the generic prong that is what most schools get to pass the test.

And I don't know where you get the idea that cross country athletes count three times. XCC/T&F are allowed 12.6 for men and 18 for women by the NCAA.

The only valid reason for having an outdoor team but not an indoor is cost. The participation still counts the same, as the indoor and outdoor athletes are the same.



Actually we are hanging our hat on prong 2

And I stand by what I said about how the kids count
