They need to revisit those cases. Other cases need to be initiated. For not to count cheerleading teams and cheerleading squads as part of equal athletic opportunity, is beyond absurd. There are seven men's teams and nine women's teams. There are almost as many members on a cheerleading squad as there are on a football team. Cheerleading is an extension on all of our sports teams including men's and women's basketball, football, Etc. Women on the cheerleading squad are given opportunity in the form of competition, athletic participation, etc.
Don't know if this was already covered or not, but how out of whack are we in terms of title IX?
Now, I'm a novice in this argument.... and not sure who is already included in the title ix allocation , but.....
If non-scholarship athletes and walk-ons are included, cheerleaders need to be included as well, if they aren't already.
Being heavily involved in both basketball and football, and other events, they are being given special athletic privilege as well.
I'm commenting way too much but ... There was a court case about this that came out of Quinnipiac Univeristy. Cheerleading may NOT be used towards Title IX. - http://www.espn.com/...-sport-title-ix
The whole thing smells like bull$iena. At some point, enough is enough.
