Quote of the Day: Dan Magill
From the Athens Banner-Herald:
There’s nothing wrong with the original intent of Title IX. Women absolutely should have “equal opportunity.” But part of the misinterpretation of Title IX was citing the fact that collegiate football teams averaged about 85 scholarships on the squad, and therefore other men’s sports were reduced in numbers to help the women have the same grand total of scholarships as men. For example, men’s tennis teams were reduced from eight full scholarships to 4.5 scholarships, and women remained at eight full scholarships. That’s unfair to men.
Dan Magill is a columnist for the Banner-Herald, and is the former men’s tennis coach at the University of Georgia. That’s the same program that produced one of the most exciting American men on the pro tour, John Isner.
