I understand opportunities need to be created, but couldnt that be achieved by creating more women non-scholarship athletes. There's got to be 10 women's programs that could add 2 walk-ons each. Yes, there could be -- but maybe those programs don't want to, or aren't equipped to accommodate the additional numbers, and so the "opportunities" created there are a lot less real than in FB. With 105-man rosters in FB, I'm not sure I understand why there's a need to create more roster space, anyway. The bottom line is if they want to do this, there will probably be an easy way, and maybe exactly the one that you mention. Maybe not. Bear in mind what's being done here: putting the pressure on Title IX. Administrators do not tend to like Title IX. Everything would be easier without it, or with some moderated version of it. So they'll frame the issue in such a way that everyone fully understands that it's the women who are ruining things. "Gee, I'd really love to, and as you all know walk-ons are so core to the Nebraska football identity, but you know, this Title IX stuff is just throwing a big ol' wrench into things...we're going to work really hard to try to appease these onerous requirements, because as you know, we're forced to." 2 Quote Link to comment
