    The College Sports Council was created as a coalition of sports that were hit by title is: wrestling, swimming, gymnastics. There were some other sports involved but they fell by the wayside. The CSC is still about the only group that has any kind of voice against the losses and trying to infuse some common-sense into title ix interpretation.

    I ask this in a non-confrontational way Terp and am curious to hear your opinion, but don't you consider the NWCA as having a voice?

    Yes the NWCA does, and they've provided financial support to the CSC. The problem is that wrestling has been about the only voice complaining about the improper interpretation of title ix. It hasn't been a particularly loud voice, and mostly reactive, but we're heard a bit.

    But it is easier to marginalize us when it is only one sport complaining. "Just a bunch of Neanderthal wrestlers whining because their sport is dying." When Iowa State dropped men's swimming and diving the female swimmers also complained because they realized that they were losing team mates and training partners.

    The CSC has been the only organization representing our concerns that has spoken before congressional hearings held under the guise of celebrating XX years since the passage of title ix and how it hasn't gone far enough. And Eric Pearson, along with a handful of others, has done the lion's share of work. There were about 5 of us in a room with perhaps 100 WSF and NOW people.
