Title IX sucks

Title IX sucks. Well, at least if you are an Arizona State male athlete. It was announced Tuesday that ASU eliminated three men’s sports, wrestling, swimming and tennis. ASU plans to continue women’s swimming and tennis.

ASU now has 20 varsity sports—eight mens, 12 womens.

Yes. That’s fair.

I’m not a fan of these minor sports, but I’m not a fan of government idiocy either. If men’s swimming can’t make it as a “business”, I doubt women’s swimming can. Wait. Women. Water. Swimsuits. I need another example.

If men’s tennis can’t make it as a “business”, I doubt women’s tennis can. Wait. Women. Short skirts. Nice legs.

I’ve lost my train of thought.

Oh yes. If minor men’s sports can’t make it as a business, then it is highly doubtful women’s sports can.

Title IX has created an environment where useless sports like women’s water polo or synchronized swimming are given precedence over real sports like wrestling.

According to the Arizona Republic, wrestling programs have declined from over 400 just 15 years ago to fewer than 100 today.

This is a great example at how the government works. Instead of creating opportunity for women, Title IX has reduced opportunity for men. It isn’t fair. It isn’t right.

However, it is modern America. It is the modern world of college sports.
