Would be sad if some schools use this crisis to "clean up" their internal operations (ex. UAB) so they can deflect their poor management

Some states are trying that route.

Exactly- Cleaning up old problem under the umbrella of this pandemic. This is where we end up with the support and especially monies earmarked for Covid relief going elsewhere and then many of these same States, cities, and companies will come back and ask for more money to actually fix what the original money was for.

I am OK helping people who are impacted by this disaster. Not OK with those who want to pay for preexisting problems. Not using, as Rahm Emanuel once said: "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste" as a guide 😈

sad to see ECU dropping their Tennis Programs, surprised they did both men and women, curious what their Title IX compliance looks like now

With the trend of more women than men at more and more colleges I wonder if we will start to see some women's programs trimmed?

Earlier this week Furman University in Greenville, SC disbanded baseball and men's lacrosse.

Question, at some point when schools are back, will schools be sued under Title 9 for under representing men's team? Not sure if that has been done.

I don't anything in T9 protects male athletes.

History has seen (let's not count this current situation) that men's programs and opportunities have been greatly reduced.  So Title 9, while providing for improved opportunities for women, has been mostly a one way street. 

However, the NCAA stance remains -

And their response to the impact on men -

So while the opportunities are needed, and good for women, men's programs have suffered.

I don't know the number of scholarships but they now sponsor nine women's sports and seven men's sports.

Football is the problem. It takes up so many more resources than any other sport. 
What I see from a lot of you seems to be a direct or indirect way of saying “Of course women deserve an opportunity to play sport just not at the expense of men’s sports.” Not to speak for you, but it certainly comes across that way. 
 

One thing that could fix the problem would be to reduce football scholarships by about 30. NFL rosters are only about 53(?) players yet for some reason college teams need 85 scholarships and another 20 walk on players? Cutting football scholarships would mean the end of the scholarship 4th string CB but it would allow poorer schools like us to have more men’s teams.  Then you could all get the men’s tennis and soccer that has been such a void in your lives. They could also allow some partial scholarships to be awarded to still be able to bring in quality players if coaches still wanted larger rosters of scholarship players. Quality walk on programs would also be essential. 
 

Just food for thought.

List of college sports eliminated due to coronavirus-related budget cuts

https://dknation.draftkings.com/2020/4/14/21220812/college-sports-budget-cuts-eliminated-olympic-sports-non-revenue-teams-coronavirus-covid-19-ncaa

The vast majority being cut are men's sports. Guess even post Covid-19 being PC is a must.

Credit to Wisconsin-Green Bay and ECU

I still don't understand the dropping of men's indoor track.  The same athletes are involved in both indoor and outdoor track.  There is no scholarship savings from eliminating the indoor program and leaving the outdoor.  

Most programs don't have indoor facilities so that is a factor, but it has to hurt your outdoor program.
