Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

From the Title IX blog -- another myth v. fact post: Cuts to Men's Teams and the Shark Attack Phenomenon.
Myth: Coach of Qunnipiac's former men's track team: "Ever since the mid 90’s, however, far more men’s programs have been eliminated in the name of Title IX than have been created for women."

Fact: Title IX Blog: "Both sides of this claim, that Title IX promotes cuts to men, rather than gains for women, are belied by the most recent government study of college athletic participation trends, which was published in 2007 and relies on data through the 2004-2005 school year."
