I'm not sure how Marshall got the attention of four Times writers unless some former MU compliance director sneaked into their Rolodex. MU's alleged sin seems a little out of place. Compare said sin to South Florida having 71 members listed on its women's cross country team, and it's no contest. Or having Cornell use 15 men to fill out the women's fencing team. Or having Texas A&M and Duke using male practice players on the women's basketball team. Yes, those men were counted as women in the federal report. Yeah, Marshall is really evil, isn't it?From The real deception of Title IX - Marshall - The Charleston Gazette - West Virginia News and Sports -. Smock does an excellent job of breaking down the situation at Marshall, not by tossing abstract critiques at Title IX, but actually challenging the claim that Marshall's women's tennis players in question "were not good enough to practice against his scholarship athletes, let alone compete." I'd say this article does as good a job as any of demonstrating not only the complexity of Title IX compliance, but also the complexity of how scholarships are assigned in college sports.
