Title IX Atrocity # 15,235: University of Hawaii men's sports on the chopping block

Mix a little economic crisis with Title IX and you get ... more men's college athletic teams on the chopping block.

According to the good folks over at Saving Sports, the University of Hawaii is facing more cuts in mens' sports programs ostensibly because of a budget crisis, but really because the perverse incentives in a law that is supposed to bring equity to college sports programs but which really results in limiting athletic opportunities for many students.

And now the University of Vermont is dropping baseball and softball.

And like many such bureaucratic outrages, the people responsible for it deny that that's what's going on.
