    Title IX isn't the problem here, the schools are.
    I don't see it that way. The schools may have a way out, but if not put in this position they'd never cut these sports. Any way you slice it, Title IX is behind this.

    The way out, which may not necessarily be the right answer, is to turn these sports into clubs, without University funding.

    Boosters or sponsers are able to fund or donate to the sport, which can still be ASU wrestling, it just isn't a University sanctioned sport.

    Sponsers, coaches, boosters and the atheletes themselves then need to book their own matches and schedule time in the gym and weight room.

    That's not much of a way out. You can't build a good program around a club sport.
