Schools Messin’ With Title IX Stats?

The New York Times and CBS News are reporting this week that some Division I schools “are distorting their athletic participation numbers so they can remain compliant with Title IX.”

The paper examined public records and participation statistics from all 245 D-I schools.  They found that:


* Some schools were padding the rosters of women’s teams with unqualified players

* Some schools were counting athletes who were no longer competing

* Some schools counted male practice players as women

* Some schools “trimmed the rosters of men’s teams.”


Nice. 

The last time I heard about a player of one sex being counted as a player of another sex the story involved Gabe Kaplan, Cadwallader University and a player named Swish.
