Wrestlers, it's always the wrestlers!
Title IX is arguably one of the greatest pieces of social legislation passed in this country. My last year of high school, approximately 300,000 women played sports in this country... mostly in field hockey and gymnastics.
And now, thanks to Title IX, the figure is 3,000,000... having also transformed this country's sports enviroment. I am an avid sports fan, a diehard Celtics fan, but women play basketball fundamentally better. They don't have the strength and speed of men, but on balance they know the game better, and play it better as a team. This should, with time, result in seeing some women coaches in the men's game... if we don't, something is amiss.
I was in an ESPNZone in Baltimore a few years back, a young man and woman, there together, were shooting hoops, it was no contest, she won easily... and it was no big deal to either of them... my generation, such would have been a big deal. It was great to see it play out that way.
This does not mean I condone anyone losing their sport, not being able to play... but the solutions so far are all aimed at gutting Title IX, and that is totally unacceptable. What we need to be doing is finding a way to include more under the sports umbrella, not shifting resources. Le't find a way to get more men and women involved.
