    I think you could be right. Schools with a football team and mens basketball team and the appropriate number of womens teams to satisfy requirements. If I was a male on scholarship in any othr sport I would be looking into other ways to finance my education.

    With apologies in advance to our soccer loving D80, this is no big loss, and long overdue. The days of carrying the "black hole" sports --as in you're throwing you money down a black hole-- just to meet some silly Div1A criteria established by old, white, politically correct, dinosaurs, may soon be over. And one would think that this new attitude will have to negatively impact WOMEN's sports too, regardless of Title IX "requirements". LA Tech fields 16 varsity sports teams, including 7 men's and 9 women's teams. That's right, NINE (9) women's varsity sports teams! That's ridiculous. Entirely "quota" driven.

    I don't think so. There's an order to professional sports, and I just can't see NBA basketball, NHL Hockey and Major League Baseball all deciding to go head to head against the NFL to compete for viewers and sponsors. Something would have to give.

    Ya think?! News flash. Nobody cares about anything other than football. MBB counts for real above the Mason-Dixon Line. Those two sports are the only two that make money.

    Slight adjustment. Just looked at the website, Tech fields six menís teams: football, baseball, basketball, cross country, track& field, and golf. But it is going to be interesting to watch this play out. Hard times tend to highlight what is truly important. With the federal debt skyrocketing and lack of local funds, the continuation of certain "feel good" rules will be tested. This is just a small one of many issues where we will be approaching a time for hard decisions.

    How much does the school get direct federal funding? Just wondering if savings from not complying to title 9 would match or exceed the number.

    I don't know, but thanks to Jindal pulling the trough out from the feeding hogs that was previously college funding, all institutions are about 80% self-funded. Prior to 2005 or so, state schools were 80% funded by taxpayers. Now, it has flipped. And overall budgets have shrunk too. So, whatever the federal funding is, it is lumped in with the 20% channeled thru BR to state colleges. Now to help "balance" the budget, JBE is considering more cuts to state colleges, and to state hospitals too, since those two represent the lion's share of the state's discretionary funding. Most everything else is protected by the state's constitution.

    The 5th paragraph says Louisiana Tech sponsors 16 varsity sports (7 men, 9 women). But I've never found that mystical 7th mens varsity sport.

    We field indoor and outdoor track and field teams. It counts for 2 sports.

    On a related note the mayor of New Orleans doesn't think fans will be allowed to attnd Saints games this fall if they are played. This would be devastating for pro and college teams. It would crush college revenues and lead to a contraction of college sports.

    This is why college football will likely play a spring schedule in 2021. Perhaps February through May.

    Nearly all of the P5 have debt obligations on facilities. And all are going to want to keep their non-revenue sports together without massive cuts. For those reasons they'll wait until they can maximize revenues. That means a spring season.

    That might also mean college basketball, college baseball, and college softball are pushed back, as well.

    Also, at the non P5 level (G5 and the rest of D1 along with D2, etc... and the NAIA) I think you'll see some sports suspended for anywhere from 4 to 7 years. It depends on how far the NCAA is willing to go (or has to go) to allow its members to survive.

    I don't know how much this would impact the NFL, as a substantial portion of its revenues - about half - are through TV alone. The NFL has the ability to work with with the NFLPA, if needed, to play the season.

    In any case, they will be much more likely than college football to play the season in the fall, even in empty stadiums.

    This will be brutal for the lower tier P5 schools and the 5 schools that swallowed too much debt. Some of these schools got way out over their skies with athletic foundation debt and it is about to be a wake up call for these universities.
