Schools need to drop sports that aren't able to support themselves through either donations, ticket sales or marketing deals, just like everything else. Would the school still have a major offered at their school that was losing money hand over fist? Of course they wouldn't. But they have to do so in sports because Sally needs to be allowed to play field hockey or because Jim needs to be able to play soccer at a big loss for the school each year. Stop. Doing. That.
If you can't support the cost of your sport, cut it. Title IX is a joke. Get rid of it.
OK, so yes to my question then. You want to make the system "fair" for literally a microscopic portion of student athletes and then tell all the rest of them "suck it, not my problem."
That's the biggest load of BS I've ever heard in my life.
Oh my god, Andrew Wiggins has to go to college for a year before he makes more money than he could possibly spend in his life in the NBA. What a tragedy. Cry me a freaking river.
