What's USF's justification for remaining in FBS?

That's not really a relevant response to my statement. 07-coffee3

Why not? USF has just as good of a chance as EMU at a national title.

Just because the question makes you uncomfortable doesn't mean it isn't valid.

It's not a valid question. It doesn't address the point I made about existing for paydays whatsoever.

That said, USF is playing a game that can't go on forever. Like other top G5, we are soaking are students for tens of millions in fees to keep up the appearances of a "Power-Ready" program, in hopes of getting a P5 invite. If we do get that invite, it will have been worth it, literally, as the huge Power income stream that Clemson enjoys will in the long run dwarf the money the university has spent to achieve it.

But we can't go on like this forever. If we don't get a Power bid reasonably soon, at a certain point we have to be willing to concede we're throwing good money after bad, and cut our losses (meaning, our athletics).

Here’s the sports that have been added and cut the most in the past decade. EMU has plenty of company. Those sports cut don’t bring in much revenue, additional enrollment, or much civic pride.

RE: EMU sports front and center is faculty protest over cuts and layoffs
Kind of surprising to see so many schools in Division I without women's soccer programs. It looks like the list includes the following:

American Athletic - Wichita State
Atlantic Coast - Georgia Tech
Big Sky - Montana State
MEAC - Coppin State, UMES, Morgan State, Norfolk State, Bethune-Cookman, Florida A&M, NC A&T, NC Central, Savannah State
MVC - Bradley, Southern Illinois
OVC - Tennessee State
Southland - New Orleans
Sun Belt - Texas-Arlington

Let's face it: Despite all the Official Mission Statements that use flowery language about a commitment to gender-equality in athletics, most non-Power schools** are playing a desperate min-max game whereby they are doing their best to invest as much money as possible into football and/or men's hoops, while staying within the court-defined parameters of Title IX compliance, and an acceptable public-perception on that issue.

** Power schools of course strive to do the same thing, but their big cash makes it considerably easier to do.

I would be curious to know how many schools have been required to add women's sports teams (or eliminate men's sports teams) because of action by whoever it is that enforces Title IX compliance.

Courts don't require schools to add women's or eliminate men's teams. They just say that the scholarships have to be roughly equal.

E.g., if a school has football, and currently gives 140 scholarships to men's teams, and 80 to women's teams, with 60 of the men's being football, then it has to either cut back men's sports to bring men down to in the ballpark of 80, or else add women's sports to bring women up to around 140.

So when a school with football claims that a court forced it to cut men's diving and soccer and cross-country, what it is really saying is that it chose to sacrifice those sports to preserve football.

Football creates the problem, because it involves way more scholarships than other sports, and they basically all go to men.

In the 80’s over 200 D-1 wrestling schools...by 2010 the number was in the 70’s. All schools cited title 9 for the reason they dropped it. Arizona, LSU, Syracuse were just some of the successful programs axed.

No, there is no requirement for scholarships to be equal. Its a common misconception. There are 3 test for title ix compliance.

(1) The number of male and female athletes is substantially proportionate to their respective enrollments; or

(2) The institution has a history and continuing practice of expanding participation opportunities responsive to the developing interests and abilities of the underrepresented sex; or

(3) The institution is fully and effectively accommodating the interests and abilities of the underrepresented sex.

Point 1 deals with participants, not scholarships. For example, some schools have female crew teams with almost as many athletes as football. Notice how popular women's lacrosse has become.

To satisfy Point 2, schools can show that they have been adding additional women's sports over time.

Point 3 is the when schools argue there is no interest in adding additional women's sports.

Nowadays, I think Point 3 is an uphill battle. After 40 years of title ix, I am not sure Point 2 is all that applicable anymore, for most schools. That leaves Point 1 as a the de facto test for title ix compliance.

This has been discussed before and scholarships are required to be equal. From the CFR
Quote:(c ) Athletic scholarships. (1) To the extent that a recipient awards athletic scholarships or grants-in-aid, it must provide reasonable opportunities for such awards for members of each sex in proportion to the number of students of each sex participating in interscholastic or intercollegiate athletics.

Their is also other criteria. The test you're referring to only concerns itself with the first requirement.
Quote:(1) Whether the selection of sports and levels of competition effectively accommodate the interests and abilities of members of both sexes;

(2) The provision of equipment and supplies;

(3) Scheduling of games and practice time;

(4) Travel and per diem allowance;

(5) Opportunity to receive coaching and academic tutoring;

(6) Assignment and compensation of coaches and tutors;

(7) Provision of locker rooms, practice and competitive facilities;

(8) Provision of medical and training facilities and services;

(9) Provision of housing and dining facilities and services;

(10) Publicity.

Right, but in practice, what that typically boils down to is that scholarships have to be roughly equal. Not exactly, but in the ball-park. Schools used to dodge this a bit by saying that males were 55% of the student population to justify more for men, but now that tables have turned, and females are typically the majority of students, that doesn't fly.

Basically, if you have significantly more men's scholarships than women's, you're in trouble.

RE: EMU sports front and center is faculty protest over cuts and layoffs
If the NCAA had any balls to enforce its own rules, schools like EMU would have been forced out a long time ago. That wouldn't be a bad thing for the G5 or P5. Some schools just do not belong on this level of play. Enforce the attendance rule for pete's sake. When Marshall rejoined the MAC, its stadium was 28K, the school was forced to expand over 30k to fulfill its obligation to move up. Now there are no balls in the NCAA to "fix" whats broken with membership levels, and here we are.

It would help Eastern Michigan if 99% of the state wasn't always on the Michigan / Michigan St bandwagon/Walmarters

I don't think Georgia Tech even has men's soccer, which I find baffling.
