How Title IX Holds Back American College Soccer
From Bill Archer at Big Soccer, some unfortunate facts about the college game:
As for more scholarships, let’s start with getting colleges to stop dropping programs.
I’m not about to open the whole Title IX can of crap here, so I’ll just say this: to add more male soccer scholarships would mean adding more female scholarships in some sport or other, and they’re having enough trouble filling the ones they have. Too many universities are already forced to go out and recruit women for things they’ve never done before, like rowing or field hockey.
Unless you can figure out how to either a) repeal Title IX or b) exempt football from the Title IX equation (which they should do but won’t), you’re simply wasting your time.
