A new study from the Women's Sports Foundation shows that, despite claims from the Title IX-decrying College Sports Council, men's participation in college sports went up up 6 percent between 1995 and 2005. John Cheslock, who authored the study, also finds that increased spending on certain men's sports as well as trends in high school sports (like increased participation in soccer and lacrosse) have affected colleges' decisions to drop various sports programs. The College Sports Council's response was a mixture of sarcasm and whining about how we're missing the point, which is pretty much what we expect to hear from a group dedicated to over
hauling Title IX. [Wall Street Journal]
