    Default USA Today: Lock Haven's AD lightning rod for lawsuits, criticism

    From USA Today...

    The logo of Lock Haven University styles it as "The Haven," a term of endearment that conjures images of safety and refuge, fitting for a leafy campus nestled amid river, creek and mountains.

    Don't let the name, or the bucolic setting, fool you.

    Lock Haven is on the litigious front lines of a bitter battle of the sexes that turns upside-down the common Title IX argument that women in college athletics are not treated as well as men.

    Sharon Taylor is the longtime athletics director at the small (enrollment: 5,329) state school in north-central Pennsylvania. Her critics say she favors women over men and that's why women's teams fare better than men's at the Division II school.

    "Oh, it's worse than that," says Patrick Guerriero, a former assistant athletics director. "Sharon hates men."

    That article is disturbing to say the least. It sure seems like alot of lawsuits for one school, let alone one department, to be going through. All I know is that Lehigh used to be a great wrestling school and has seemed to drop off quite a bit. I sure hope they get this all straightened out and the wrestling team returns to its former glory.
