The New York Times Finds Men Can Count As Women, for Title IX Purposes

This is crazy stuff The New York Times printed the results of an investigation Tuesday on the myriad of schools gaming the Title IX requirements in various ways. The centerpiece of the article is the South Florida women's country team, which had a roster of 71 (!) women in 2009. Only 28 competed in a race, and one runner interviewed was kept on the roster after quitting and returning her scholarship and given free shoes and advantages in class registration in return. Apparently lots of schools pad their track rosters, because the athletes can be counted as participants in three sports. greatly upping their female athlete totals. (USF for the record denies this, but didn't make their track coach available for interviews.)
