This.

Losing football has a cascading catastrophic effect on all athletics, and will KILL our women's teams.

I'm not sure that's true. If you go look at some of the universities named in other threads who cut football, like Pacific and CS-Fullerton, they still have more women's athletic teams than men's.

Scholarships are divided up creatively. For instance, let's say the NCAA rules allow for golf to give 6 full scholarships. The women's team likely gets all 6 scholarships and gives out a full scholarship to 6 different players. The men's team however (as determined by the university), may only get 2 full scholarships to be divided amongst the players on the roster. In doing so the athletic department makes up for the 4 scholarships towards Title IX compliance.
