I do blame title IX for making it impossible to set it up to pay players though, because everyone has to get paid if someone is getting paid.
While I'm not sure I would go so far as to eliminate all non-revenue generating sports, I think that schools could (and should) limit costs by abandoning conference play for non-revenue sports and play more regional opponents. It just doesn't make sense to have the UC women's tennis team playing away matches at USF or Florida Atlantic or the men's golf team playing in Cabo San Lucas or Florida when there so many other schools located in this region.
