Abstract

Title IX of the Educational Amendment Act of 1972 has expanded the opportunity for women in athletics. At the same time, it has been detrimental to men’s athletics. The elimination of men’s teams is analyzed through a theoretical model and empirical evidence. College athletic departments have used an inefficient method to comply with Title IX because they use the method the NCAA encourages. The NCAA needs to reevaluate the methods that it has encouraged and improvements should be made to Title IX.
