How is a parade for a specific team title 9 issues.

UA-Tuscaloosa:

Clemson: "Clemson University will throw a party for its fans Saturday to celebrate the football team’s College Football Playoff National Championship win."
https://www.southcarolinaradionetwork.co...-saturday/

Besides, they didn't throw one for nether basketball team so title 9 be darned.
If its sour grapes because one team got a parade and another didn't, suck it up.
If football gets us into a better conference then I bet a parade will be the farthest thing from peoples mind.

It may or may not be. I don’t know the specifics of Title IX rules, except that all gender sports should be treated equal.

The issue is moot though since the city is doing the parade and not the University

Despite the bad timing of the parade, it was great. Nice crowd. I got few pieces of candy and beads from Spencer Brown! Hopefully it will be more parades to come for them. 03-thumbsup

The parade was really cool! Nice turnout, and it was good to hear the inner-city bands!

Solid crowd. Great to have the city bands all involved. That made this a truly city wide event. Also no complaints about the time from me. Having University shut down in that time frame meant that everyone driving home listening to the radio were hearing that it was shut down on the traffic report. Not just that it was shut down, but that it was shut down for a UAB football championship parade. Free PR. I like it.
