Hi! I hope you have time to share your opinions with me soon! In the
meantime, thank you for asking this question! I hope I can help.

This information comes from the National Collegiate Athletic Association
participation survey relative to the elimination of men's teams after the
installation and enforcement of the proportionality rule. I would like to
point out that Title IX is not causing the destruction of men's sports,
PROPORTIONALITY is. Title IX actually boosts women's sports. Look at the
fact that immediately after Title IX was passed, sans proportionality,
women's sports skyrocketed. After the installation of proportionality, no
such dramatic increase occurs. Which leads me back to my original question
which remains unanswered: Who wins by using proportionality?

  It is all summed up in an opinion from "Judge" Cynthia Holcomb Hall,
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, when she wrote firmly that an institution
may bring itself into compliance by eliminating male opportunities. The
question is: Who wins when this is done?

  I hope I helped! I look forward to you sharing your thoughts!
